Precise 5.7.1
I notice the thread
[url] http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=84718[/url]
deals with a lan wireless adapter I use as , no doubt , do countless other potential users.
They would be walking away in droves scratching their heads and going to other distros as there is only a limited fix by "pemasu" for the one distro only (5.4.2) and it has not been incorporated in subsequent releases so none of them are useable for people with that adapter . I last looked at 5.7.1.

I see also a bug noted in this thread
[url] http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=85477 [/url ]
with glipper failing to load reliably each time , sometimes it loads most times it does not and restarting the x server fixes it . If you are deep in the middle of something and want to copy text then everything has to be shut down first.

What is the point of continually updating distributions with new features if old problems are not fixed? I can't use any precise distro except 5.4.2. I guess the others are like that too huh?

Thanks James C .
I do not understand what was happening there . I posted , it appeared for a few minutes and then it disappeared as I was trying to add the links required .

I thought someone was censoring the posts

I have played with the first post and it comes up on edit but does not yet show on Submit
Got it now see above -needs a space after [url] before http
