Barry, and/or other significants

Could it be possible and practical to publish high-level feature list BEFORE each official release, things like

1. kernel version
2. Major libraries (libc, GTK...) versions
3. WM (should iceWM be the default, the XP theme looks very Windows to me)
4. ....

I am thinking to replace rxvt with mrxvt on Puppy 1.0.3, and like to know if I need to update/install some libraries.

If I am not mistaken, you are using VectorLinux 5.0 Std (RC1) as the official development platform, it has 2.6.11.7 and 2.4.29 kernels. Only 2.6 kernel comes with headers and full-line of kernel modules. I can't find 2.4 kernel header package to install.

If 1.0.4 uses 2.4.29, which Puppy starts 2.6?

1.0.3 is about 58-60M, will it ever grow over 62MB so that it won't fit on to a 64MB flash pendrive?

Well I am just an insignificant cructacean but my whiskers tell me we might be seeing a Puppy 1.0.4 this week - hopefully on Monday Smile

However my predictive powers are sometimes amiss.

Cool

Perhaps this is of some interest . . .

OK, I made mrxvt working on 1.0.3

how can I share?

If I have to make a mrxvt.pup, who should I send it to? Thanks

If you have a working package, just post it to this forum.

I scan the forum, test stuff that's posted
-- though, there's so much happening these days, there may be enormous delays before I get around to some things.
