Cut and copy from this post: http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=52232

What to do... for upgrading an iso image.

* Download the correct .delta file for the iso image you want to upgrade:eg if you have pup_stardust-005.iso get pup_stardust-005.iso:pup_stardust-006.iso.delta. Of course check the checksum
Code:
md5sum pup_stardust-005.iso:pup_stardust-006.iso.delta
.This will produce a long string of alpha and numeric characters, it must be exactly the same as the one posted by the developer.
* Save the original .iso and the new .delta in the same directory, this is not essential but will save some searching time
* Simply click the .delta file and the Xdelta gui will appear

* Click GENERATE
* You should see a green splash screen indicating that the new file is generated and there will be a new .iso file in the same directory as the .delta file. Again, compare the checksum with the one provided by the developer. All should be well.

I went back and grabbed the iso and devx and updated manually.

All is well ... even LibreOffice and devx now play nicely together.

Good puppies!

Thanks for the upgrade.

Subject description: Upup Raring 3.9.9.1 with non-PAE 3.9.9 kernel.
 

I did a manual frugal install of 3.9.9.1 to a 16gb SDHC card, running
on a Compaq S6700NX desktop pc.
Computer
Processor 2x Intel(R) Pentium(R) 4 CPU 2.80GHz
Memory 1553MB (199MB used)

I installed lots of applications in ppm, added openbox_plus-1.5.3.pet
and a few others.

Thanks for the new version.

EDIT: I found that pmusic makes the processor run at 80%+ usage, clementine only uses 20% or so with Seamonkey active at the same time.
EDIT:I just tried pmusic again and it's okay now.

I have already asked this question. Why modules are loaded if the are already loaded?
We didn't have anything like this in earlier builds. In the past, this section of the log was and should normally be whistle-clean - modules are just loaded, get along nothing to see here ... something ain't right. Regarding SNA, Barry's raring has it I beleive. Works well for me, Ubuntu has accepted it, Barry is reverting to UXA only because he aims at older hardware. Is upupRaring targeting the same segment?

For my eeepc (atom n270/945) the first video driver worked better. This one, doesn't give me a chance of doing some very basic xorg.conf settings. For a long time, I've been applying this to all my puppies:
Code:
Section "Monitor"
   Identifier   "Monitor0"
   VendorName   "HSD"
   ModelName    "3e9"
   HorizSync    30-41
   VertRefresh  56-65
   DisplaySize   220   129
EndSection
   
Section "Modes"
   Identifier "Modes0"
EndSection

Section "Device"
    Identifier  "Card0"
    Driver      "intel"
    VendorName  "Intel Corporation"
    BoardName   "Intel Corporation Mobile 945GME Express Integrated Graphics"
    Option      "AccelMethod" "sna"
   Option      "DRI" "true"   
   BusID       "PCI:0:2:0"
EndSection

Section "Screen"
   Identifier "Screen0"
   Device     "Card0"
   Monitor    "Monitor0"
   DefaultDepth 24
      Subsection "Display"
      Depth       24
      Virtual     2048 2048
      Modes       "1024x600"
   EndSubsection
EndSection

Section "DRI"
       Group  "video"
       Mode   0660
EndSection

Some puppies give better font rendering if I specify the display size, others will do better if I comment out that line. But overall, these settings work perfectly well, because xorg has everything it needs, already predefined. However, this raring rejects my legitimate and innocent settings! It gives a square screen, that can only be adjusted (via quicksetup) to what you'll see in the second image. Note also, this is a 945 chip - very basic one, absolutely unassuming, humble and unpretentious. Not a performance beast. It just works and never fails on any puppy.

Anikin. I dont know about that xorg.log. The new mechanism how xwin - xorgwizard - xorgwizard-automatic works is not yet quite familiar to me. You should ask straight from Barry K.

About intel_drv.so choice. I know surely that IvyBridge and Sandybridge intel graphics didnt work with 3.9.9. Sandybridge intel graphics didnt even get to the X. JWM crashed. IvyBridge was slower than snail. That is why I reverted to the uxa acceleration as default. I decided to test the newest version at the same time.

Beside. Sna acceleration is not in use, even though it has been compiled as default, if you dont have that xorg.conf device section, which defines sna acceleration. Just like in Anikin has tried to do.
The intel_drv.so driver has been compiled with sna and uxa in Ubuntu version and in mine. The default choice is just different in mine and Ubuntu version.

I knew that there are some which would like to use default sna accelerated intel_drv.so. For them fix is easy and quite small.
Just download from PPM: xserver-xorg-video-intel_2.21.6 .deb. Install it and restart X.
Done.

Hi pemasu,

It's working great although I still have the mounting problem for an ntfs partition. Your new sfs for VirtualBox appears to work fine. Although, there is a newer version available from Oracle. I did add their Extension Pack which is required to activate some USB features and it installed fine.

Thank you for another super distribution.
Jim

Charlie6. If I understand correctly you should have azerty in Rox. Instead you have qwerty...

in this 3.9.9.1 rox "Rename" function still writes qwerty while keyboard settings are be-latin1 (i.e. belgian azerty)

About xorg intel_drv.so driver problem with brookdale graphics...

this can be solved either
with:
- loading intel 2.21.6 debian package (i personaly picked up it from the former 3.9.9 and made a pet)
or
- upon boot-up,
1. right click somewhere in the black screen area to let the main popup menu be displayed (only icons, no text);
2. then point on the bottommost icon (i.e = Shutdown) to let the side menu and have the side popup menu displayed having red X icon standing for "X restart" in it;
3. click on this red X ...and it is done. The X desktop comes fully dipslayed.
4.Then select Menu/Setup/QuickSetup first-run settings to achieve locale settings as usual.
Cheers, Charlie

Charlie6. If you run in console: keymap-set
....and choose your keyboard setting with it. Does it fix the Rox-filer right click problem ?

I went to fresh-1st-boot raring-3.9.9.1, and run quicksetup first settings:
abiword and gnumeric display azerty when i type azerty;
as also rox rename .... Shocked ..!!??

but geany display qwerty instead .

I then run keymap-set in console + select be_latin1; then closed and reopened geany: OK ! it displays azerty now Smile

This post typed from that very session ... Smile
Thanks!
Charlie

Charlie6. Quicksetup runs keymap-set command and Upup Raring definitively has your wanted keyboard map. I am quite amazed what goes wrong. It looks like the quicksetup does not behave as it should. I suppose you have used quicksetup for your keyboard map selection.

Yes i have !
I use to adjust quicksetup
- fr_BE for locale
- GMT Europe Brusels
- be_latin1 keyboard map
whenever booting-up pfix=ram

Yesterday when running keymap-set in console, be_latin1 was in first topmost position in the keymap-sets keyboard maps list.

This morning, i booted-up using a live-cd having the former 3.9.9 version, and again i got rox displaying qwerty when typing azerty.
I also booted-up on 3.9.9.1 with:
- 1st: adjusting the quicksetup kbd map to azeryy (Tandon); again rox display qwerty ....
- 2nd: run keymap-set and adjust to be_latin1; again got rox diplaying qwerty.

Typing in abiword, gnumeric, geany works OK as expected. Rox only has that behaviour.

Hi pemasu,
In its default UXA mode, this build doesn't have any of the above desktop distortions. I want to set it straight. Those happened only when I attempted to have SNA as accel method. And it runs pretty fast. Fast to the extent, that I'm re-thinking my position on SNA vs UXA for my eeepc. I want to compile video-intel driver myself and do 2 versions of it - SNA only + UXA only. That would be the best way to chose the right one for this machine, I think. And looking at charlie6's effort on compiling mesa - I want to do that too. Any advice, hints, cflags from both of you, or anyone who cares to share, will be greatly appreciated.

Thank you in advance.
