PostPosted: Sat 07 Mar 2009, 09:42    Post_subject:  Puppy 4.2 RC2 Deep Thought - Bugs & Fixes  

I have just uploaded the second Release Candidate for Puppy 4.2 Deep Thought with Seamonkey and Claws mail. There are no major issues remaining to be resolved, having settled the CUPS printing issues and most of the wireless networking problems:

Known issues:

1. The desktop icon theme changer script has a bug that causes certain top level menu icons to be overwritten when switching themes and then not copied back when returning.
2. I still haven't set /usr/share/doc/home.html as the default home page for Seamonkey. It's there and contains the link to the puppy web portal but you'll need to add it manually to test.

New applications include Pwidgets (1.9-5) and Icewm-1.2.36v.09. This release has been mostly about resolving the niggling bugs from earlier releases and adding some minor changes to usability.

Coolpup has continued to submit back-end updates as have aragon and ttuuxxx. The localisation team including esmourgit and droope have continued to supply localised scripts. Zigbert, trio, 01micko and tasmod are continually churning out new versions of Pwidgets. Lobster and ecomoney are working on publicity. Pizzasgood, Dougal, Patriot, rerwin and MU are working behind the scenes supporting various parts of the program. All have my sincere thanks, along with the myriad of willing testers, for their support of the project.

NOTE: All mirrors now require login - UserID = puppy, Password = linux

Mirrors:
1. http://puppyisos.org/isos/2009-01-to-06/4.2-rc2/
2. http://www.pkagfiles.net/puppy-test/
3. http://www.puppylinux.ca/puppyfiles/test/

If the mirrors don't show the new release yet it's probably because the admins haven't had time to move the files to the download area ... try again later.

This release is 100.02Mb, including CUPS, so I still have to prune a little more to find room for RemaX (Remaster Express from pa-mcclamrock) which will be another 26kb compressed.




Enjoy!

It's ready here http://www.puppylinux.ca/puppyfiles/test/

I hope the speed issue has improved. We are moving to a new server this weekend so I hope it doesn't break the link but by that time MU and PKAG will be ready.

Ok boss fella,

Too many clockskins and waaaaaaay toooooo big! I've got dejan555 working on a nice lean one that Flash can read.... It'll save 20k compressed easy.

Seamonkey looks as nice as ever, did you tweak fonts? I do have a new widey LCD though. Old one died.

Talking crap now so the OS must be OK!

Cheers

First critics after 5 min use.
- Pwireless is missing
- Pstopwatch/Ptimer is missing
- 3 new clockskins double the size of Pwidgets. It is about 100kb bigger in this iso than the original Pwidget package.
- Default sidebar could be made smaller.
- Right alignment of desktop icons are still not correct
- Globicons missing MANY bindings to /root/my-application/bin. This is very clear when using left tray - add icon. All programs should have a link to a icon.
- Rox 'Icon grid' is defined to 'Fine'. It is hopeless to place an icon to a wanted location. 'Medium' is much better, and has been the default setting in Puppy.


Regards
Sigmund

..adding to that

-strangely, very strangely, Icewm shutdown dialog appeared in centre of screen when I tried to restart X, using JWM
-was trying to restart X because left and right trays went walkabout (seems after pressing the 'x' (close) on them)
-I don't use and didn't try Icewm at all
-did full reboot ... no side trays Crying or Very sad

Ah well

- The wallpaper setter is not the latest and conflicts with Pwidgets.
- The earth background could have been replaced with one looking ok also on a widescreen.

Puppy 4.2rc2 has a problem with the intel ipw2200 wireless pci card - it will not recognize it. Md5sum is right. Dmesg shows kernel tainted.

Works great in 4.1.2

Try the suggested solution in the RC1 thread?

PETget package manager
Updating menu, please wait . . . and wait . . . and wait . . . and wait . . . and wait . . . . . . . . . . . . . . Something really needs to be done about this before the final release!

Printing does work, as expected. Very Happy Also, you don't have to see a purple dialog window any more before the CUPS window opens up. Good. But . . . it's still not obvious how to set a printer as the default, and it should be. This is especially important with TextMaker (which I use) and any other app that wants to use the default printer. Printing did not work with TextMaker until I remembered how to set my printer as the default.

I saved my PuppyPin file and copied it to /root/Choices/ROX-Filer before creating a new pup_save file. After rebooting, sure enough, the desktop icons I wanted were where I wanted them--but some I didn't want were there too, like "calc" and "chat." Can this be prevented from happening?

And now for something really, really strange. When I booted puppy pfix=ram, ROX-filer was there all right. But after I created pup_save and rebooted . . . ROX-Filer was missing from the Filesystem menu, it didn't appear when I clicked drive icons on the desktop, and here's what I got when I tried to run it from the command line:

Code:
# rox &

bash: rox: command not found


What's going on here?!
