I made a couple of pets in Precise, wbar is an application launcher
which has imlib2 as a dependency.
If you copy /usr/bin/wbar to /root/Startup folder then wbar will start
everytime the computer is rebooted or x is restarted.

Billtoo, thanks, it works, however users need to be aware that none of the applications that show up at default are installed in Precise and new items have to be added. Also, there is no default font installed so the application title doesn't show up.

Quick test run live pfix=ram.Sound and internet working on initial boot...incorrect resolution @ 1280x1024. Exited to prompt and used xorgwizard to get desired 1366x768x24.

Hi Jim, I found the fonts in fatdog, I don't have precise running atm but will look in that tomorrow.
The application title shows up when the mouse is over it, once a default font has been selected.

Hi Barry

I've compiled the proprietary Broadcom wl wifi driver for Precise Puppy 5.2.58 k3.2.18 and incorporated it into my single multi-kernel pet

This version contains the latest rerwin logic for all the Broadcom drivers as well as the wl driver.

Background is here.

Cheers
PeeBee

Please be sure to read the comments at my blog announcement for beta1:

http://bkhome.org/blog/?viewDetailed=02856

There are already lots of fixes. PETs to fix the plugins for SeaMonkey for example.

Ah, it is good that you guys are having success with the Xorg nouvea driver.

Anyone got an ATI/radeon video chip to test?

Just been playing with the latest Precise Beta 5.2.38 released earlier today. Another li'l beaut. Like its Upup predecessors nice and snappy!

Just as with Ubuntu Precise Pangolin itself the ATI video card causes grief - nothing new here. With ATI graphics under Linux you have two choices. Either install the open source Radeon driver or the proprietary FGLRX driver. The current Radeon open source driver has been broken in recent kernel versions - so that just leaves the proprietary option.

You need to have both the devx and the kernel sources activated on your system. The bad news is that it does build - but with errors that result in an extremely slow frame rate performance.

The better news is that there is a tiny hack available that seems to work around the problem - see here:

http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=77735

It has rescued me on more than one occasion. So thanks for the tip - well worth a try if you're experiencing this sort of problem with ATI.

This is ilewis's first forum post actually.
