Hello Art,
At the moment I'm using this Wine SFS:
http://distro.ibiblio.org/puppylinux/pet_packages-lucid/wine-1.3.6-i486-sfs4.sfs
It works well for me in Precise 5.4 (I'm playing plants vs zombies), maybe it works for your setup, too.
Cheers

Ok James, that sheds some light for me, I'll come up with a hot fix shortly.

(it's to do with the "retroprecise" prefix, 99% sure)

It just so happens that I have it on the usb stick on the lappy I'm using now..

EDIT

ok, here is the DIFF

PostPosted: Sun 28 Oct 2012, 22:09    Post_subject: Experiment to add dropout delay to network managers  

Here is an experiment to utilize jemimah's improvement to dhcpcd that apparently reduces the occurrence of the loss of wireless connections where there is a weak signal. If the feature works so well with Frisbee, why not add it to the other network managers!

This requires the installation of one of the "dhcpcd-dropwait" packages I have posted on page 6:
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=660566#660566

If you do not have the "dhcpcd-dropwait" package installed, networking will not work. /tmp/dhcpcd.log will document the failure as due to an invalid option.

I hope that any of you needing to use Frisbee because of the annoying disconnects with the other managers will try this experiment with either or both of the standard network managers. Others might try it to verify that wireless networking still works as usual. But my goal is to verify that random disconnects are reduced to the level you see from Frisbee.

Note that for the experiment, the delay is hard-coded as 15 seconds. Please tell me if it needs to be longer. TIA.

Technical note: I added the "-j" option to the wireless invocations to start dhcpcd in the sns rc.network and sns scripts, and the wag-profiles.sh script. Is there any place else I should modify?

Because I'm not a user of SM, I don't test it very often. However, after a change of HW on the bench, I used SM to run streaming TV on retro from a liveCD. Everything worked well for ~10mins, then it crashed the entire machine with long lines of code displayed. Couldn't capture these because hard reset was required. Continued with Slacko & FF. Just an observation, unable to provide any further data. Anyone else found this? Will revert to FF, Opera (already done and OK), Midori and Chrome.

I do not think is fair to "blame" Barry for that.
Is not his "fault" that no one stepped up to the plate.
He asked and as a matter of fact suggested candidates denounced the "offer" for various personal reasons.

Now regarding sufficient testing of the build, with 6-7 pupplets developing simultaneously the handful of testers that test almost everything, can test that much devoting maybe a day per pupplet.
So a "final" is destine to get more users and thus bugs.
A usual recommendation for very cautious users and any software is: "wait till update 1" Wink
Let's not forget that Lucid went through a dozen of "finals" before it reached its maturity.

There is also an inherited problem with puppy that does not allow one puplet to take full advantage from the others. In reality the freedom to build puppy from any distro and any kernel is like building 5-6 distros in parallel! And slackware packages may not run in Ubuntu.
Currently in puppyland we have T2, Ubuntu 10.04 and 12.04, Slackware 13.7 and 14, a couple of Debian versions, some that I missed and an even greater variety of kernels.
They are destined to fix the same bugs over and over...

Running retroprecise 5.4 as live CD, text highlighting in SM 2.13.1 is non-existent (transparent). Weak highlighting will also impact important settings, eg, proper use of gparted. Where do I adjust the highlight color? [Selected gtk theme "Flat-grey-rounded" to fix this.]

Default wallpaper is white? upup wallpaper looks good with icons.

I see a VLC 2.0.3 package in ubuntu-precise-universe repo. Including some 67 missing dependencies. the vlc install will use 107 MB. I installed VLC with PPM, but there is no evidence that it is working after restarting X server.

Nice to have Transmission in the original app set, because my Wary 5.1.1 doesn't have any torrent app. So this CD will be worth keeping. (Had to use Puppy 2.14x to get the retroprecise ISO.)

Couldn't get my (USB)card reader to function in retro. Tried several <mount> commands but my CLI skill set is vanishingly small or less. The reader combo is listed in <lsusb> on bus003 dev002.
Any suggestions, please?

Sage- does: fdisk -l list it? Yes? Then: mount /dev/<fdisk_listing> /mnt/<dir_you_create>

Thanks for your suggestion, Semme. but sadly not. Tried a bunch of stuff from the 'net but none worked for me. Seems a lot of folks have this problem on various distros, some find solutions, but not all. Tried editing /etc/fstab - no go.

gtkchtheme - switch gtk theme. The 'given' Stark-Blue gtk theme uses a light thistle to highlight, other gtks like the old Raleigh have more obvious highlighting.

With the device plugged during boot, attach a gzipped dmesg to your reply:
Code:
dmesg > dmesg.txt
gzip dmesg.txt

You'll find it in /root to attach.

There may be more to it than a simple mount..
