Hi

Using Wary019 now with Opera10 sfs. Used SM2 earlier and all seems very good.

Initial impression is that Wary feels a little faster than Quirky018.

Using a little less ram memory to run as more is now available.
293 as opposed to 289 in quirky.

Like the new memory meter. Acpid works fine.
Nice to see abiword 2.8.3. - Gnumeric 1.8.4 (maybe 1.10.xx when time allows)

Overall IMHO - Superb.

As always - mega thanks for a smashing new Puppy and
Very best regards - Ray

The /filesystem, /misc, and /wireless links at

don't work. Are they unpopulated?

Subject description: for the lucky p13,a3
 

my updated q018 test-article on p1

@capoverde on p6 (ref scrolling desks) - blame it on rox's pinboard (scrollwheel deskswitching in openbox is restricted a bit by using a roxpin for a drag'n'drop-featured desktop), openbox can be made more efficient but possibly it may 'break' in the process of trimming various features as integrated in q018.

@BarryK on p7 (ref fbpanel) - tpyos Smile, actually I like request and center on the left for those options, docking and setpartialstrut is another story..

confirm geany works fine in q018 (and other tes as well)

mmm, 'full' (poweroff) shutdown - actually I like power to remain on sometimes (using a liveCD 'bootdisc' since my old y2k BIOS won't properly boot from usb-stick and often I like the option to have power still 'on' so I can eject the liveCD 'bootdisc' at end of session) - btw, "system halted" makes sense to me as the final message .. maybe the "It is now safe to turn your computer off" for a retro look Smile

retrovol (advanced) r-click menu works oki after the initial session - on initial session it poofs the advanced window and traycon.

addenda to my testing report - the usual (for me) edit of xorg got it working properly on my twin-vidcard usual machine, xorg accepted the edit and good to go (black fg on blue bg and all .. some xorgs are even harder to see the selected choice in an out-of-box console Laughing )

PostPosted: Wed 14 Apr 2010, 16:08    Post subject: wary019 and trackpad  

wary019 can not turn off tap on trackpad
so sensitive just getting close will open items

tried mouse wizard -- no good
tried editing xorg.conf -- no good
replaced xorg.conf with one from quirky018 -- no good

quirky018 I can turn off tap and add side scroll
wary019 neither can be done

Sharp PC-PJ2-S2 Celeron 300MHz

Otherwise seems to work.

Quirky 0.18 suspend -> S3 state
One link : articles.techrepublic.com.com/5100-10878_11-6138911.htm S3 State
An excerpt :
Quote:
Windozs XP, for example, has a default registry key that prevents PCs from dropping down to S3 sleep mode when USB KB/Mouse devices are detected,
because the motherboard might fail to wake up.
S3 is a state in which a PC is using nearly zero power and using barely enough to keep the contents of RAM intact.


My BIOS only has Wake on Lan, so it now makes sense that either opening the lid or moving the mouse (touchpad and USB ext mouse) can't initiate resume
I can see the lid switch state before suspend, but after S3/suspend there is no way to read the file contents
Hit any key : "/var/log/messages" contains lines "entering S3 state" and resuming from "S3 state" with additional info about restoring usb and pci

BTW, "/var/log/messages" gets truncated after subsequent resumes, initial value :1772 lines, next resume 39 & next resume 736 lines
also noticed a TZ diff in the Time of msgs in this file, -2 Hours after resume
My initial live-cd TZ choice was "Europe/Paris"

On a positive note: I am thrilled to see the option to include old-style scsi drivers in .3builddistro!

PostPosted: Wed 14 Apr 2010, 19:35    Post subject: Quirky-018 8.0rc (X-7.5) 3builddistro --the saga continues  

***edited:
a compile-from-source of gcolor2 places gcolor2.png in /usr/share/pixmaps
not
/usr/share/pixmaps/gcolor2
It is a symlink to /usr/share/pixmaps/gcolor2/icon.png
***

making a copy of /usr/share/pixmaps/gcolor2/icon.png
called /usr/share/pixmaps/gcolor2/gcolor2.png
solves the dependency

For Wary 019 only

Leon tried the rolled-back Ati driver, 6.7.197, reported it didn't work.

Ok, attached is version 6.7.195, same as used in Puppy 431.

On the other hand, going the other way, here is the very latest Ati driver (April 5, 2010).

Leon, try this also...
