PostPosted: Fri 20 Mar 2009, 02:58    Post subject:  Puppy 4.2 RC4 Deep Thought - Bugs & Fixes
Subject description: ... and then there were none?
 

I have just uploaded the fourth and final final Razz 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 the wireless networking problems as well as ALL of the minor niggles from the RC3 Bugs & Fixes thread:

Known issues:

1. The Pwidgets Clock-analog plugin doesn't appear (first boot only) until you click an icon or the background.
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 (2.0.5) and PBurn (2.2.2). This release has been all about squashing niggling minor bugs, polishing 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 still 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-rc4/
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 99.32Mb, including so we are within our target weight for the final release. I will have a "tiny" surprise for FINAL which should be uploaded in 48 hours if all goes well with testing in RC4




Enjoy!

Can't find any bugs so far. Pwidgets seems much faster. Has seamonkey been updated, it seems more stable than RC3?

Got to go to work now.

Thanks to all.

PostPosted: Fri 20 Mar 2009, 04:42    Post subject: Chooselocale script can't find Internet Connection
Subject description: Localisation error/problem
 

I'm running RC4 in virtualbox, with 256 MB ram, 512 MB swap and I'm surfing on the net. When I use the "fetch" button in the chooselocale script I can see brief network activity (Blinky) and then I get the message that there is no internet connection. Tried with and without savefile, but same result.

Something else; In RC4 Seamonkey offers automatic update. Can this option be used without breaking anything?

Pleased to report that Abiword does not crash when adding a pic and right clicking on pic (in fact very nice demo clip art is there . . .)

Tried in fresh DVD boot and also just using as an update from rc3
Feels good Cool

No, but Flash has been bumped to 9.0.159 so that may account for it.

Like everything else in life, there are no guarantees. I've used the Seamonkey update option many times without problems. That doesn't mean the same will hold true for you or anyone else, and not just on Puppy either. The golden rule is backup, backup, BACKUP!

Hope that helps

Either I'm mistaken but you didn't use the spellcheck fix I made and posted for abiword and claws mail, and You didn't use claws mail 6.0.0 which I also provided for ssl, So we don't have spellcheck and we don't have working SSL in the email.

I think you may be mistaken. I'm writing this on RC4 and Abiword spell check works just fine since I blended in your fix - first time EVER for me I might add. I haven't tried Claws mail yet, but I'm not too worried about that either. I used the 3.6.0 version you supplied as suggested and according to your tests with tronkel that's the one that has SSL working.

Where are you testing, ttuuxxx? Mine's on a clean partition with no pup_save.2fs file to confuse matters. I do it that way to make sure the first boot works properly and not just after a pup_save has been created.

It looks like you didn't add any of my fixes from page 2, ???
whats up with that?

WTF are you looking at, Jeff? Shocked The Burn2iso fix is IN, the Set-Time-Date is IN, Abiword and Claws fixes are IN. I left out Geany font because I implemented a workaround. I didn't use New Blinky + Freememapplet because they were complications I didn't need at this stage of development.

Are you sure you even HAVE the RC4????? Didn't get RC3 again by mistake or something? Confused

Ps I did mention atleast 5 times that my work is also in page 2 of RC3.

Ok, settle petal! Since when have I EVER "ignored (sic) your work"? Do me a favour and click on Set_Date_Time and tell me what you get because I get your updated one with the little "Warning" on the Set Time page. It is Friday night ... have you been drinking?!? Rolling Eyes

I haven't uploaded changes to ibiblio.org since RC3; that's why you aren't getting Pwidgets-2.0.5 in the uninstall options. You won't get Pburn-2.2.0 either! I have a few minor changes to make before uploading Final and then I'll update the main repository. After that you should be able to do whatever you like.

Ok, no worries.

Intriguing the Xonclock problem. I am running in ram, save back to cd, and no problem.... Confused

Just looking at screenshot with weather showing.

Just a tip, but those who want the name not in capital, just run plugin again from menu and type over the name as you wish before re-applying.

Didn't work for me, Rob. It may be an Accuweather thing rather than a problem with the plug-in. The plug-in dialog works great though. Saves the average user from having to wade through a config text file to find what they need. Much MUCH better IMHO.

Cheers
