Explain this, someone! Using Slacko 531 on a Thinkpad T60p.
Driver is Radeon, default screen resolution is 1680x1050, but I prefer 1280x800. Whenever I succeed in getting Xorg to set to 1280x800, it reverts to the higher resolution next time it boots. However, I installed the Meta driver pet. Now somehow I have 1280x800 permanently, but Xorg.conf still shows 1680x1050. If I go to the xorg resolution changer, that shows the current resolution as 1280x800. And if I type xrandr in the terminal, that shows 1280x800 as current too.

I'm happy, got what I want, but how????

EDIT: forgot- report-video shows 1680x1050. I suppose it looks at xorg.conf.

Okay, Slacko's not a derivative of Puppy. What is it?

Slacko Puppy 5.3, our flagship Puppy, premiered on October 25, 2011:
http://bkhome.org/blog/?viewDetailed=02556

There are many flavours (builds, editions) of Puppy Linux, but "Flagship" means basically that we recommend this pup as a "first-stop" for newcomers (unless you have older hardware and might want to go for our Wary Puppy, or some particular need that attracts you to one of our other Puppy builds).

Slacko has had a very good reception, but as always there are things that can be improved, and Project Coordinator Mick Amadio has now released Slacko 5.3.1, a minor upgrade and bugfix release.


Definitely should be in the Projects section...;.

Is this some kind of stupid joke or has someone lost the plot??Slacko 531 is the most up to date Puppy release and deserves it's rightful place in the Projects section.

so, I'd say it is mainstream official puppy....but ask 01micko/Barry, if in doubt

http://bkhome.org/blog/?viewDetailed=02556

It's Official in the wiki

http://puppylinux.org/wikka/PuppyVersionIndex

I'd have thought Puppy Projects as it, and bugfix thread's rightful place

Hmm. Well, Barry didn't start the Slacko thread in the Bugs section so I didn't think he had anything to do with it. Embarassed

If Slacko is the flagship of the Puppy litter (to mash a few metaphors together) then it isn't exactly a "project" any more, is it?

Well.. I started the thread originally in "Announcements" because that's exactly what it was. If you read the original post you get the gist of that and I directed people to post bugs in the slacko bug thread.

I see 2 possibilities.

1) put it back in the "announcement" forum (deleting the last 10 or so posts)
or,
2) put it in the "next puppy development" sub-forum and add "final" somewhere in the title. (one disadvantage.. may cause even more confusion!)

Cheers

Okay, it's back in Announcements. The reason I moved it from there in the first place was it grew so large it didn't look like an announcement any more. When you make an announcement, maybe you could include a link to the discussion thread, then ask me to lock the Announcement thread so people don't post there. It just doesn't look sanitary. Laughing

How important is it to everyone that a thread be in the right place in the forum?

I think maybe it's more important that the originator of a thread - particularly a long and active one - is consulted before the thread is moved......

Hi, sorry to change subject

I'm particularly interested in the audio improvements in Slacko over Lucid

I had a strange experience with Slacko 5.3.1 recently. I had a persistent ghost screen image of the word Slacko from one of the desktop backgrounds that showed through in SeaMonkey and also when rebooting to other versions of Puppy. I had left the PC on overnight with the screen blanker disabled and was concerned about "burn-in" of the image to my LCD monitor.
The image seems to be gone now. But to be sure, I will have to try booting Slacko again and firing up SeaMonkey to see if a ghost image still shows through.
