That's good news. It makes me think it might be a retrovol problem, if you would like to try that retrovol pet.

installed the retrovol pet and have the same problem.

I am going to start over with clean full install and see if i still have problem.

If I install the super multimedia upgrade and RC instant update 002, do I need any of the other updates or patches??

No, that's all. Wow, people seem attached to that Super Multimedia Upgrade. It'snot really necessary and it is 10MB or so, so I am a little bit surprised.

That will help. Thanks.

BTW, what kind of sound card do you have?

Thanks majorfoo, Could you delete the file /root/.retrovolrc just to see if that helps with the RC's problem?

I'm also having problems with Retrovol after installing the RC 2 instant update .pet.The volume slider in system tray is stuck on 15% and cannot be adjusted up or down.However,I can alter the sound levels using the sliders within Retrovol.
I ran Alsa sound wizard but no change.

EditTried installing retrovol-0.10.pet without success.

Edit2Deleted file /root/.retrovolrc,restarted X and volume slider now working.

Deleted /root/.retrovolrc, restarted x and problem solved.

As always, it's Playdayz to the rescue when I encounter a glitch.

Thanks for your help and patience.

Hi Guys
Just like to confirm, deleting /root/.retrovolrc, has worked for me as well.

Thanks to every one for all your efforts, in making this one of our
favorite puppies.

Very Happy Bob

Playdayz, does it matter whether one installs update 2 or the multimedia update first?

Subject description: (finally) a Puppy to do it all :D
 

Hi there,
just wanted to say thanks for this version of Puppy Linux. As I wrote here (http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=578582#578582) it's the first version that seems to run stable on my laptop and has all basic features working, which is a nice thing.

Thank you for all the work!

Some minor glitches:
When installing Skype with the SFS get feature from the puplets install dialogue AND having Puppy running in RAM you'll get a warning ("... experimental...") and it fails to install. BUT if you use the Puppy Package manager Skype installation, you end up with a working Skype. No big deal, really - to my mind it would be better to give the warning BEFORE the user tries a SFS get install, though.

For some reason I had to connect to WLAN twice to make the settings persistent. I tried other Puppy derivates and it was the same - if not worse. No difference if you go the easy or advanced config route. First WLAN setup is fine. Reboot the machine: WLAN settings gone. No connection. Repeat the WLAN configuration, reboot - and in Lupu528 it's working from then on.

Some localisation problems with the german language like some dialog boxes having YES/NO instead of JA/NEIN or missing umlauts (like ä for ae and so on) here and there.

Odd findings:
My laptop is getting rather hot, fan speed is quite high although I activated the CPU speed regulation and choosed 95% threshold. Most of the time I should get 2x800MHz instead of 2x2,1GHz that way... still the laptop is heating up while browsing etc. I'll do some more research on this, maybe using LAN instead of WLAN to get an idea.

Kind regards,
Th.
