Oh dear - no legacy drivers in ALSA for ISA cards any longer. Is this a kernel thing?

I didn't see one posted so here's my attempt at the 'amd fglrx' driver for precise.
I think i got everything and it seems to work.
I used the slacko driver as a template for making the .pet(includes the slacko pinstall / punstall scripts).

you can download here http://www.mediafire.com/file/x5vqjnskilxz3l5/amd_fglrx-12.8-x86_precise_3.2.28.pet 54mb

Posting as a reply to Barry's Beta 6 ....

Beta 6 destroys the wireless capability I've enjoyed with previous versions.
I've tried both the simple connection and the complex setup. Neither result
consistent connects. If I do get a "successful connect" report I sometimes
can't browse ... it behaves like a DNS lookup failure.

My old Linksys router does not offer WPA2 ... only the WPA Personal that
it's been set at ok for many years.

666philb. Thank you. Your ATI driver fglrx works great for me, with my difficult dual graphics. Usually I dont get stable graphichs and I need hard poweroff at sometime due to freezing. Now it seems to behave....and I get HDMI video outputted to my lcd TV and also....HDMI audio using ATI inbuild audio system !!! First time in my Puppy history I get HDMI audio...
Not bad....well...it means great.

Now I need to remaster this...which I usually dont do at all...so that I have this great HDMI friendly setup made permanent. I have already umplayer, smplayer, vlc, qt-4.8.2 installed.
Very promising.

Touchpad has the usual drunkenness as it has had with this Xorg version all the time. But wireless mouse should work ok.

@tiangeng
Your 2 screen shots seem the same.

Your issue may be because of the GTK or JWM theme.
I tried fresh precise with wqy-microhei.ttf + my fontconf-local-1.0.pet, and found no problem.

I find the reason, in my ./jwm/jwmrc-theme,

<MenuStyle>
<Font>DejaVu Sans-12:bold:oblique</Font>
</MenuStyle>

I added "BOLD",I deleted "bold",it's ok.

Thank you very much.

You also need to remove the dash(-) from 'Sans-12' so that the titlebar (of the windows) can show Chinese characters.
<Font>DejaVu Sans 12</Font>

The new SeaMonkey 2.12.1 pet appears to work fine. Thanks for the updated browser.

Barry

Did you find that seamonkey wouldn't compile against system cairo? Perhaps vpx too if yours isn't recent enough. Can you post the mozconfig please? It certainly has grown a few megabytes in the past couple of years and this version as against 2.11 grew over 1 M. (When I compiled in Slacko, the official mozilla version was smaller once I removed the modern theme).

Subject description: and PUPPY
 

Bonjour, Precise please me a lot, c'est à dire beaucoup. Good and safe.

I would like to say ' I dont like more Ubuntu than Windows !"

Too big, too slow, too 'your papers please' and boring.

Puppies are fast, efficient, and when I write here, i have answers.

So, keep puppies themselves, stop clothing them in ubuntu version x, or Mint. I have them on my hard disk. And i never use them.

OK, Boys ?

But tell it to Puplettes makers.
I am using precise 5.2.60, all is ok. Wifi, sound, everything..

i.e sometimes wishing better is worse than the present.

Please keep oldest versions available. Merci beaucoup.

What does the artwork represent? A dream in Ubuntu colors or something more precise?

To those 5 of you who have downloaded my "fixes-3e" package, please replace it with my corrected version, "fixes-3f", available here:
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=651870#651870

I had omitted a critical part of preference processing, breaking it. Thanks to peebee for pointing out the problem to me.
