It's working okay so far, highlighting and copying text from one
document to another is a little difficult because the highlighted text
doesn't show as highlighted at first but is once you click on the
destination document.
I couldn't find the report-video file in /tmp/root, changed the
wallpaper to one a little easier on the eyes.


Billtoo (or anyone else),
I don't understand the above.
Highlighted text, where?
I can highlight text in any application, and it is perfectly visible as being highlighted.

Humph.....

Shut down RC2 (after tearing my hair out... what little is left!) Rebooted another program.... shut that down and figured I'd give one more try at Precise WiFi to see what maybe I missed.

Well... I guess I didn't miss anything because on reboot I forgot to plug in my eth0 cable and Precise fired right up and low and behold WiFi was '''connected'' and seems to be working OK!!!!

Like I say, I don't have very much hair left after this one since 5.2.60 Very Happy

Other than the rt2800usb thingy... Precise runs like a champ in all other areas I tested so far...

Your eth0 cable is connected to a live network? Puppy will automatically use that as the Internet connection at bootup, see script /etc/rc.d/rc.sysinit.

Regarding - highlighting - it’s fine and is working.

However, changing gtk theme, improved things dramatically,
especially in abiword.

Barry,
To continue support for ALSA modems, the slmodemd daemon is required. However, it is not present in 5.3.97. That is because the firmware package firmware_linux_module_slmodem-20121004 was not included in the woof-installed-packages list. Please add that to the list for the final release, to avoid a regression for ALSA-modem users. (It does not require the presence of the slamr or slusb drivers, which should be omitted.) Thanks.
Richard


Thanks, done.

Hmmm, highlighting in Abiword, I have posted when first drag over some text, then second image when window has lost focus.

I can't see anything wrong with the readability.

Still occurring with worsening failure rate on first boot, seems to be a precise issue, rarely happens with current Wary. Have yet got mouse working will keep trying and let you know if it ever clears that lockup. Sad

No eth0 (or any other cables) plugged into computer from modem... definitely running wireless!!!!

System I'm running... Verizon Modem is 'also' a router with my DSL.

PostPosted: Sat 20 Oct 2012, 22:25    Post subject: Mouse lockup problem research  

Mouse locks up if laptop is plugged in, but boots cleanly 1 of 5 times if running on battery.

out of 41 boot attempts only successfully from battery, no pattern noticed.

Successful boots on try #s
3,19,21,25,28 only on battery power #19 and on
31- power cord removed during search for puppy.sfs
32 powercord removed then reinserted after disk io finished
41 powercord removed. (posting from this try)

So I'm guessing its a timing issue, CPU drops speed and boot speed slows somewhat if on battery

JamesC: please advise where you get some of those superb wallpapers you use. Can't live with some of the awful things that've been appearing recently!
