Sub_title: Dingo feedback
 

correct page for Barrys release notes:
http://distro.ibiblio.org/pub/linux/distributions/puppylinux/test/puppy-4.00beta/release-4.00b.htm
(wrong page on Barry's Blog)
Also on the page I think this 'humorous mistake' is 'numerous' (so to speak)
Quote:
Humerous hardware-related and system-related improvements

Another funny thing (good) Seamonkey (that Puppy workhorse)
is upgraded to 1.1.8 and I can use Stumbleupon again - hooray
https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/seamonkey/recommended


wiki page for download, mirrors, updates
http://puppylinux.org/wikka/Puppy4

New themes, New progs
Stable enough for daily usage
Testing now underway. Have fun

Dingo is Wild (bring back the crazy citrus theme as default - ahem . . . well OK maybe not . . . I liked it . . .)
I also almost immediately changed the JWM theme to Vistablack - now that is stylish . . . (Menu/Desktop/JWM configuration - choose a JWM theme)

add popular progs to Dingo Beta with LIT

* Lock doesn't appear to work. This is displayed in the orange window:

xlock: error while loading shared libraries: libstdc++.so.5: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

* Gxine dies when attempting to edit the preferences. A window appears with:

Fatal Error
Segmentation Fault

* Has the copy to RAM threshold changed? I have 224 MB and it didn't happen.

* Blinky seems to be using about 2x as much RAM as I'm used to seeing.

* There is what looks like a battery monitor in the JWM tray. It isn't displaying anything. I am not using a laptop. Check it out (attachment).

I got the same errors reported by floborg. The battery indicator works on my laptop when I do a acpi=force while booting.

In addition these are the bugs I noticed:

1 - Default network wizard will not connect to my WEP encryped wireless router even though it always gives "connection succesful" message. Then I tried Pwireless wireless scanner and this worked at the first shot.

2 - Icon missing for "Auto connect to wireless network" under network.

3 - Hotpup drive icon settings always says "Sorry failed to apply new mode, restoring old". But when we restart X after changing icon irientation, it works.

4 - Fotox does not work from the menu. If we type Fotox at console, it works. I guess the menu must be pointing to /usr/share/fotox/fotox instead of /usr/local/fotox/fotox

5 - When we change the jwm theme and restart jwm, there is an additional instance of blinky that pops out of the tray and also shows on the taskbar.

6 - When I shutdown, it does not give me an option to save. It directly gives me a message that "session not saved". I ran using frugal and not from a cd.

7 - Two extra profiles (alex and something else) are seen in the wireless section of network wizard.

My common tasks:
Abiword worked
Gnumeric worked
Gxine plays my video streams (even though fullscreen issue is still there, maximizing it makes it work)
Seamonkey works with Flash websites that I visited.

I liked this theme much better than the citrus theme as it is pleasing to the eyes for prolonged use. I must admit that the citrus gives a very good initial impression.

Sub_title: Kernel panics.
 

With Puppy 398 I tried booting my Gateway 2000, 64 MB + 200 MB Linux swap,
and it Kernel panics when searching for Puppy files.

I tried again, with "puppy pfix=ram", but it still searched for Puppy files, and Kernel paniced again!

I had no troubles like this at all with Puppy 396.

I'm monitoring #puppylinux as eddie-Gateway2K.

Thanks,
Eddie Maddox

Noticed these bugs

1. Very minor bug.

# jwm -p
JWM: warning: /root/.jwm/jwmrc-theme[32]: invalid tag in TrayStyle: Height

Remove the line 32 on the jwm themes, Gradient-grey and the Original, so the Tray management>Tray Height Option will work in JWM Configuration Manager.

2. When you start xorg with 1280x1024, it stays at 1024x768 until you go back in to xorgwizard and play with the refresh rate, setting it to a lower level.

Overall very nice. Good Luck, Kal

PS: #1 has been fixed by Barry for Beta 2, Thank You

Shouldn't it be mentioned in the release notes that Puppy 4 has scanner support?

It seems that Barry has moved his target: From being best of the tiny penguins, to compete with the heavyweighters.

I'm mentioned in the release notes. Yippi, I have to print it for my mum. (even though she doesn't know zigbert.) Smile

Nice! Everything seems to work for me except the menu-Fotox and an initial GRUB stage1.5 read error, probably due to some cr*p left on that old HD.
Personally, prefer a Caribbean beach scene, but the snowy mountains have a nice class.

Have anybody else trouble with flash9? alpha7 played tv-programs via www from the norwegian tv-channel NRK, while beta1 doesn't.

PostPosted: Sat 05 Apr 2008, 04:59    Post_subject: 3.97 boot broke, too...  

Ok. On my Gateway 2000, 64 MB RAM, 200 MB Linux swap:

Puppy 3.96, k2.6.23.12:
CD boots, installs, runs fine.

Puppy 3.97, k2.6.21.7 &
Puppy 3.98, k2.6.21.7:
CD boot, searching for Puppy files:
kernel panics.
CD boot "puppy pfix=ram",
still searches for Puppy files,
and still kernel panics.

Could a Puppy 3.98, k2.6.23.xx, be made available?

Thank you,
Eddie Maddox

Nope - it's not me. There really is something wrong with the Installer/GRUB. Didn't we have this once or twice before?

There's no services in Ayttm service selection drop-down box. Missing plugins, I presume?
It would be nice, if Puppy could detect, if a system has battery or not, and show/hide battery meter automatically.

Was setting up my wireless and noticed there are some leftover profiles. (alex and WLAN-11b-GW)

Also, great initial background and colors.

Spent the morning looking at this installer issue in some detail. It seems that it is limited to some HD (Fujistu, especially), some chipsets (SiS) and some cables (80w). Having said that, the effect is reproducible. But very much stranger. Doing a full install with all those items - will not boot - gives the GRUB error message. However, switching the drive to a P4 board and a 40w cable produces a normal boot up, even from an apparently 'failed' installation without further modification. Swapping the cable from 80w to 40w and/or IDE channel also produces a normal boot. Most of the time has been spent double checking cables, drives - including debug wiping, jumpers, IDE controllers found nil defective components. ipso facto, this is another artefactual effect to look out for with certain equipment. Not a problem for me - just swap HW, but those with less kit or intolerant spouse should beware!

1. Fotox doesn't work from Menu here either.

2. Chooselocale doesn't fetch

3. Impossible to update Geany with geany-0.13.pup put in the required extra files first but nothing happens just a window opens with "geany-0.13.pup" in it. Please put in latest Geany in next beta.
