its too big ! Open office ? It will be unable to run my laptop Acer with 512MB RAM with only one processor. The interest of Racy was to be around 130MB id 450MB in Ram..
Would you choose an anonymous Puppy ? , please list contents..
Sorry, contents are listed in the first post, i beg your pardon Smile
About wine and Windows and old computers :
Would you use Wine if your computer was bought with Windows included ?
Qt and Java included are not a bad idea, Wine can be discussed. And two browsers
A nice idea would have been to deliver PRER with QT and java Apps included, that would have changed the usual menu of Puppies
There are so many puppies ... each one must have something to be elected.. Rolling Eyes

However PRER 5.5.2 being downloaded ( i use my Medion 4GB Ram most of the time)

i would. when i was transitioning from windows, i switched out any windows software that wouldnt also run in wine. had to use wine to find out what programs were easily wine compatible.

also, wine is more likely to be secure than windows (but not always by much) and more trouble than windows (but not always) but it definitely does less to bother you, doesnt phone home to microsoft, and doesnt try to downgrade you to 10.

Free Office (Softmaker) is part of PRER 5.5.2 ! for people working with their Puppy at home. But Java is missing . I would have prefered Java JRE to play some pleasure applications..
I use windows 7 for (rare) offfice work . And Abiword for light text in Puppy.
I Delete free office immediately ( i have escaped from my office work since trhree years now Exclamation )
I can use Wine, for urgent needs.

Gtk Youtube Viewer is unsupported because youtube updated data API to ver.3, so you need to switch to SMTube

Subject description: Early feedback on update 16th Jan 5.5.3 PRER
 

Hi ninotix,
really enjoying your premium Racy build. Somehow I missed all the forking with Quirky/Wary/Racy previously, but recently I was having considerable pain finding a reliable Pupplet or official Puppy for a Sony Vaio VGN-TX37GP, with 1.2GHz CPU, 1.5gb RAM. XP vintage. Unusual screen dimensions. Main hurdle was the ICH7 chipset for the onboard audio and Alsa configuration mismatches, along with the later Linux kernel changes... I'm hazy on details, but "regressing" back to Racy and your very commendable distro has this little workstation humming like a new machine! So snappy all round. Lots of great little performance and organisation surprises. Even Frisbee works straight off the bat - have had various connection inconsistencies with the more recent Puppy offerings, but that matter is covered in detail elsewhere. So I'm now streaming youtube without any hiccups whatsoever, and excellent audio with my headphones. *This* is what is great about Puppy and developers like yourself - hardware that is getting up to 10yrs old is still relevant and efficient for daily use. Please accept my thanks and Congratulations for a very useful project, in PRER. Cheers!

The following were installed and appear to run.
PaleMoon 2.6.
LibreOffice5.3

The following were installed and refused to run.
PaleMoon 2.7
Inkscape (full)

If the developer could add more apps to the available repositories for this Puppy, that would be good.
The apps listed above were installed via .pets taken from repositories from other puppies.

thanks M

I like racy55 so I thought I would try this. I only have 800MHz and 320MB. Find seamonkey a bit slow but usable. However, each time I start it a box appears called default client. I have tried various settings with this box but it will not close unless I press cancel. If I restart the programme the same box appears. I've used seamonkey before without problems. Any ideas on how to fix this?

Regards,

Ken.

Fixed it. Looked for it in about:config with no luck. Found it in preferences and unticked the check box.

Subject description: PRER 5.5.3 as a media server
 

Hi again ninotix,
only getting rare occasions to re-test your racy hybrid on the Vaio VGN-TX37GP I mentioned earlier. Writing from it now. Was testing it out as a media center last night, hooking it up to a projector and sound system. Had some hiccups that didn't happen with other distros tested for the same task, which is a shame as I reckon Racy/PRER would be ideal for such a task on the XP-era hardware specs. I'll work through it, but the main issues seemed to be that this (?) xorg and openbox combo didn't compensate for the projector display dimensions automatically - bit of a tiling issue going on when connected via the RGB connector.
The most confounding issue was regarding the audio specs in this machine - snd-hada-intel alsa module configuration for the N10/iICH 7 won't happen, and although I get some default module enabling sound, Retrovol and alsamixer cannot be run as they don't seem to be loaded up.
From what I gather, I have to write a modprobe.conf file with some codes to have alsa load the module correctly. Will try that later.
Interestingly, without a mouse and middle-click options, I can't crtl-copy paste in and out of Rxvt terminal. I wonder if this behaviour was intended in some way?
Cheers

Simply beautiful.

Subject description: puppy_racy_5.5.sfs: 294 M
 

What could you do with your Puppy Racy once installed, and no more help needed from Linux Puppy team ?
An idea would be to record how to do, if ever you loose memory (your memory, not the RAM)
Take screenshots, step by step, then launch ffconvert and tick record desktop. browse your screenshots.
No audio. comments or music have to be added in a second time.
Not to difficult. Something to try.
I play with Lazpaint. I colorize old postcards like our grandmothers made canvas, when computers did not exist.
A Slideshow to store them, and i erase pictures Jpg. then i post my work on Facebook, to be admired by all my friends and relatives.
Use Openshot for a nice slideshow, if you like it (needs lot of time).
Use Cinelerra ? Very Happy i you have days and days for a 5 minutes slideshow.
