Thanks for the pointer Henry. As an old boxpup fan currently using Saluki 023 alongside a much loved and modded boxpup, I had to give it a spin. It is indeed Saluki set up with grays inimitable touch. Very much as I like Saluki pruned and honed. I diddled with the panels and Opera a bit for look and feel, turned off the desktop icons and it runs well and looks good. It certainly deserves a thread in the derivatives section. I did have to copy the intel ipw2200 firmware from /lib/modules/all-firmware/ip2200 to /lib/firmware to get my intel pro wireless card to work, much as in the first release of wheezey. Other than that it is swimmingly happy on both my laptops, a Dell D610 and a Fujitsu S6120, both intel i915 graphics, Pentium M processors, 1Gb memory, Grub4dos installs to cf cards in ide adaptors or USB drives accessed from Plop on the primary cf card Grub4dos setup. Idle CPU use on the Fujitsu, slightly the slower machine is < 4%. The Dell < 3%.

As an aside, the hardware acceleration in Opera 12.02 actually seems to speed up HTML5 rendering and drop cpu use on these two i915 laptops. opera:gpu checks it, look for acceleration in opera:config and try it out. I usually run with flash on demand only but this isn't possible with HTML5 content.

Cheers,

Sub_title: 5.3.2 replaces 5.2.2
 

http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=81031

The above is highly recommended. ozsouth offers a new iso that is based on Racy-5.3.2 instead of 5.2.2
It has improvements from 5.3, most notably that unionfs is replaced by aufs making the desktop icons update correctly. Also no whiteouts.

The upgrade was trouble free, using the existing racysave.2fs (increased by just a few Mb), with everything working as before. The new kernel is 3.0.25

gray's new PreciseNop has just emerged.

I am pleased to report that it does not have the "blind logout" and reboot problems reported in RacyNop -5.2.2 reported above.

I'm struggling to modify the main menu - for example if I look at the "menu, document" menu I see an extra separator which sits above the "text editors" entry, but I can't work out how to remove the separator. Any ideas?
