Downloaded and did a full install on my P3 test box.Working great as expected. Smile

I was a bit concerned while running live before the install though. Because 2.14 X is known for not using a lot of memory, I was surprised by Htop showing 100 mb of swap being used while running live. Now that it is installed, it's back down to about 40-80 mb used with 0 swap.... much better.

Hi James you also had Firefox running at the time, That would explain most of it Smile

Running only Htop, no Firefox, ram usage is down in the 40's. Running live it was using swap at idle.............not a problem, just an observation.I don't run the live cd much so I was surprised at the difference.

All I know is that 2.14 X is fast, solid and just works........ Smile

Edit: sorry, a stand-alone post. It's a follow-on to my comment above that I could not print to my printer which is connected to a windows computer.

Nowhere for cups error_log to go!! I created /var/cups/log/error_log so that I could see what was happening. Unfortunately, I'm going to be out of town for a couple of days, and these network problems are v difficult to track down.

Cups error log reports that /usr/lib/cups/backend/smb is missing.

Can't do any more now.

@ttuuxxx- I should have known. The I've lost count of the number of Puppies I've put that symlink into! Barry puts it in the "official" releases nowadays, so I'd forgotten about it. Anyway, that's the fix. Great new Puppy!

ttuuxxx working in the RC, Great news. Very Happy

I think it deserves its own forum thread, this thread is large enough (in fact too large for a good search) and all the bugs reported here are closed now.

Sadly I only can download and test this RC on weekend, too much work now. Crying or Very sad

Greetings,
clarf

Hi Clarf

I did think about that and then I figured after 161 pages, we only have about another 10 or so pages to go and then we can topple pwidgets reign over the most threads and become the largest murga forum thread in history, lol I'm so competitive Smile Probably the final should be on a thread by its own Smile

OK ttuuxxx, we are going to break that record. Smile

I also was thinking in some other fine features for 214X, I really like the Control Panel from Dpup, what about our own Control Panel for 214X?

What do you think boys/girls?

I originally found that same control panel during the 4.2 build but Whodo select a different one. Gposil has tweaked it some, but I could find it again on the web and compile it, it has a lot of nice features, just needs to be setup.
If you or anyone else wants to set it up, I'll compile/package it.

I know something you DIDN'T add to 214x ttuuxxx

CatDude's grub gui....

http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=185314

Any chance for rc1? ....or am I the only one who liked it?

Please discuss, if only to boost the page numbers Wink

Like clarf I won't be able to give it a good test for a day or so but (after /opt/samba/bin/smbspool has been sorted) it looks spot on.

I have been saying for ages that if FF is launched from the menu it redraws the desktop when it exits. That problem seems to have gone away with 214x-RC1. Good news.

I like the idea of a smart looking Control panel but would only like a grub-gui if I can turn it off. Hopefully that's possible.

And finally, yes it would be really appreciated if you could start a new thread for 214X final.

Oh and by the way...no MD5. grrrr

Cheers Smile
Dave

EDIT
Oh no. I spoke too soon. The "FF bug" is back and now it seems to take even longer to redraw the screen. As I've seen other apps do it (picasa3 beta-sfs??) I guess I shouldn't call it a FF bug. I can surely live with this by using the desktop icon to launch but it worries me that something is not quite right.
