@Lobster,

Its good to see you on the forum again. I hope all is well in the Paradox Realm. Smile

It is is a quantum place. Both existent and non-existent. Schrödinger's cat says hi/meow ... Very Happy

Since inception in late 2017, it seems Dpup Stretch 7.5 has become a 'slow' rolling release rather than an incremental point release. To that end, RC5 should be available soon including kernel and application updates, plus multiple fixes and enhancements introduced recently by our Woof-CE devs.

Although Dpup Stretch is a Woof-CE build, it is unconventional in many ways and deviates somewhat from standard Puppy. I'm not sure how well it would port to an 8.1 designation, but thanks for your consideration.


An unconventional Puppy? My favourite sort.
Because of the stability, Woof CE build, rolling release, hard work, you are welcome to be part of the movement towards Puppy Nine, any time ...

Live long
and Puppy

Hi radky,
I just download your puppy : great job again. Thank you very much.
I put it in french with the french langpack by esmourguit : it works fine. And i put also FbBox in french : I just modify your english2french script for some translations and it is ok.
I didn't read all the 43 pages and don't know if you already explain how to put FbBox in french.
In case, to get FbBox in french : https://augras.eu/puppy_forum/index.php?topic=24.msg409#msg409.
Only the Menu entries are in french and PupShutdown.
Thank again Radky,
Philippe

Hi,
i'm with your puppy since yesterday, stretch-7.5-uefi-k4.9.149, on a old laptop lenovo x201i from 2009, and it seems everything works fine. I'm still with my xenial by phil666 in which my ram seems always full but it's not the same here : i don't understand why but it's what i can see.
I just not Get java runtime doesn't work (it's the same in the other puppies), and transparency doesn't work with urxvt-control.
I'm with 2 screens, the one of the laptop and another 22" one and zarfy is not easy to use like lxrandr : each reboot my config isn't keep.
For a RC it's a very good one.
Thank you for this great work.
Philippe

EDIT : i found 2 other small things
- Get flash doen't work (like in the other puppies) : there is a Getflash-1.6d.pet that works http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=98373&start=22
- the sylpheed entry in the menus is empty : in the sylpheed.desktop file there is Name[fr]= but it must be Name[fr]=Sylpheed

Hi Philippe,

Thanks for testing Stretch RC4 (released 10 Jan 2019). The next release (RC5) is now in testing and should be available soon.

Thanks also for the link which provides instructions for French localization of FbBox.

I downloaded and tested rerwin's get_java-1.1.pet, but it seems the Oracle site parameters have changed and the download fails. Currently, I don't have time to troubleshoot those changes, but maybe one of our forum members could evaluate further.

Please try the following:
1 - Go to Menu -> Utility -> Urxvt Terminal Control
2 - Set Transparency to On
3 - Set Shading to 100
4 - Click Apply
5 - Restart/Relaunch Urxvt

You could create a small script which (when booting) automatically loads zarfy with your last screen configuration settings.

For the auto-start script, run the following code in a terminal to create /root/Startup/zarfy:

Code:
echo '#!/bin/sh
zarfy -l' > $HOME/Startup/zarfy
chmod 755 $HOME/Startup/zarfy

Thanks, I'll make the correction for RC5.

Edit:


The default GetFlashPlayer v1.7-1 works fine for me.

Your script for zarfy works fine : thank you.
I made a new test with getflash in fresh frugal install and it works ! I don't understand what was wrong before !
A RC5 : are you sure ? You are not joking ?
The RC4 is already very good.
Thank you for your answer and your hard work,
Philippe

Until I can get around to updating get_java, please work around the download failure by going to the java site and downloading the latest jre from there to /tmp. Then run get_java but install from the copy in /tmp.

Thank you rerwin for your help.
It works like you say for the pet file but it doesn't work for the sfs : after the click on Make SFS the window closes and nothing else.
It is just to inform you : i'm ok with the pet.
Thank you for this tool,
Philippe

Hi,
i need to print today and try to add my HPLaserjet4050 on my network but it is not detected ! Until today there was any problem to be detect in any puppy.
I made the conf by hand with http://ip_address:9100 and it works : it's ok for me but it's not the best way.
Have a nice day,
Philippe

@ radky:-

Y'know, I'm absolutely astounded by this thing. It's been running very sweetly on the big old Compaq desktop for the last couple of months.....pretty much as expected, really.

My 'go-anywhere' Puppy up till now has been Slacko 560. Still is, in fact. I decided, however, to add Stretch to the stick; a big one, 128 GB in fact, with a lot of my documents, pictures, music.....and a good selection of movies for when I get bored!

I'm currently 'plugged-in' to ye anciente Dell lappie; an original 1100, P4-powered, from 2002. I'm really astonished; this Pup, with the 'legacy' k4.1.48 kernel, runs very, very well indeed. It even makes the old girl seem brand new again. And that's quite a trick!

Two words. 'Thank you'. Currently in Stretch, and posting from Palemoon-portable.

Cheers!


Mike. Wink

Concur. My activities are small by comparison. I have less zeal than in the past.
I think my latest menu.lst includes 32-bit Xenial, this DpupStretch, and Dingo.
Oh, and Precise Light.

Due to a processing error earlier today, the following two isos required a correction and are now available for download. See first post.

stretch-7.5-uefi-k4.1.48.iso
stretch-7.5-uefi-k4.19.56.iso

My apologies to those who may have downloaded earlier today.
