Radky,

Thank you for this version of Strech puppy. Initial running using the default JWM it is excellent (will check FbBox tomorrow). Running Palemoon in this puppy is very smooth, videos playing well in youtube and also on various news sites. As I mainly use my laptop, one of the first things I do is disable Tapping, so was nice to see it is disabled by default now. Sound control function keys are working.

I do have one small issue. I know iwlwifi is a pain, but you missed with the firmware for Intel 7265. The lib/firmware contains iwlwifi-7265D vesions 10,17 & 27, however the kernel is looking for versions 26, 25, 24, 23, 22, so unfortunately no wifi OOTB. I don't think versions 23 - 26 actually exist in the wild. I have only ever been able to find v-22 in this range. I have loaded version 22 and wifi working fine.

For later kernels, v-27 would work, there is a v-29 which I think is the latest version, which works for later kernels.


Also one question, the script to control the placement of the Save Icon on the desktop, was previously in rc.sysinit. It is no longer there (similarly in other newer puppies). I have been unable to find where it is, as I alter it to not appear. I convert the save2flsah.desktop file to be included in /usr/share/applications and add a launcher to the top panel.

Thank you, your effort and time taken to produce this version is very much appreciated. Great work..

@Terry,

I will correct iwlwifi firmware in the zdrv.sfs and reload the k4.9.149 iso in a few minutes.

Thanks

Thanks, that fixed it. I had previously done several searches, but couldn't find script.

Thought I'd post a screenshot of the desktop as set up this evening.

Corrected stretch-7.5-uefi-k4.9.149.iso is now uploaded and available in first post.

Includes iwlwifi-7265D-22.ucode wifi firmware.

I thought I should give the 4.1.48 kernel equal oppurtunity, so I swapped out the kernel and zdrv to check its operationon my laptop. All running well. Interesting iwlwifi results. So the 4.1.48 kernel processed the intel firmware slightly differently and was able to load an earlier version of firmware outside its checking range.

As shown in the previous post the RAM usage when using kernel 4.1.48 was considerably higher than when using kernel 4.9.149, So thought I'd post some comparison values.

Kernel 4.9.149 with only lxterminal open to run inxi:
Info: Processes: 184 Uptime: 11m Memory: 7.57 GiB used: 112.7 MiB (1.5%)
With Palemoon open with a single Tab on start.me as Home page RAM usage ~ 276 MiB


Kernel 4.1.48 with only lxterminal open to run inxi:
Info: Processes: 126 Uptime: 19m Memory: 7.58 GiB used: 176.9 MiB (2.3%)
With Palemoon open with a single Tab on start.me as Home page RAM usage ~ 476 MiB

I tested stretch-7.5-uefi-k4.1.48 yesterday and saw two things.

1) I am using a frugal installation. I put pupsave=none in menu.lst but it still
loaded the save file. I don't know the way to boot without a save file. Crying or Very sad

2) the wacom driver for my bamboo tablet automatically loads when booted.
I could get mtpaint to detect the tablet's devices by making changes to xorg.conf
but couldn't adjust the pressure. Crying or Very sad

3) I request a 'Search with pFind' right click for /mnt drive files.
That allows a quick search of a drive.

Hi Terry,

I have not noticed a significant difference in my tests. Thanks for the information. Smile

I have no experience with wacom tablets. Maybe other users such as charlie6 could offer advice.

Yes he seems to know more than me. Embarassed

I think there is a udev file configuration method. BarryK seems to use that.
The table will work automatically out of box.
By the way if you are buying a wacom tablet you should get the smallest and cheapest.

Have now done a frugal install to SSD on my HP Desktop. This has Intel 7260 Wifi card, connected OOTB. I'm running at present using included FbBox WM. All running very well.


Once again, thanks radky, this is a great addition to the Puppy kennel.

That would be a nice feature. Currently, [at least under Xenialpup64 where I tested] you can file-browse to /mnt, select a partition, right-click and customize the menu to add pfind. [drag its desktop file into the window which opens]. After a restart-x, pfind will open offering to search 'the current folder' of any mounted partition selected in /mnt* EXCEPT the Home partition, as to which it just doesn't respond at all.

* but not by right-clicking the desktop icon of such partition.
