It seems 1.0.8 will be out soon.
I settled down 1.0.7: installed it on an old hd and made it handy with lot of work. I won't like to start it from beginning and even won't every second month.
In case of hd install will be there any solution to upgrade from 1.0.7 to 1.0.8?

In Barry's News for 19 Feb, he reports that 1.0.8 will be reverting to the 2.4.29 kernel to fix the problems with wireless. There are reports on the internet of Slackware 10.2 and ndiswrapper working together successfully (10.2 uses the 2.4.31 kernel). Presumably the Slackware combination of kernel parameters avoids the problem that Puppy has encountered.
Pity to lose some of the goodies that 2.4.31 offers, but that's life I guess.

Have just checked out wireless with Puppy2 Alpha (same code base as 1.0.8 ) using an adapter supported by the built in AT76C503 driver. Did not crash the kernel, but no joy using wireless either. Sort of gets halfway, shows a wireless device but the device cannot be configured.

I read a posting somewhere, someone had trouble with ndiswrapper on Slackware 10.2, and his solution was to use the "bare.i" 2.4.31 kernel, and if I
recall rightly, he also had to do "acpi=off". he said that the "scsi kernel" that he
normally uses doesn't work.
