YES!
carolina-firmware-fix-0.0.1-pemasu.pet
seems to solve the issue, Frisbee now populated.

Normal network wizard also working, and populating.

Default of ext4 on and old stick caused weird reboot errors of the save file. Redid with ext2 and reboot went well.

By the way, first time you reboot, and save file does not exits, the procedure runs, I think creates the directory, but does not actually reboot. It took a second reboot command to cause the save file to be created and rebooted. This might be normal for this puppy? I usually do not create savefiles as I run off the CD.

If the firmware.dep is not inside the iso, the live cd usage with firmware loading need will suffer. It will need the savefile creation which is not habit for those livecd users.

Frisbee connected very quickly. Very Good.

Thanks to all the Carolina folks, it worked!

Now I can check out some other stuff. Smile

Pete

P.S. My sound is working fine.

Just for the record my hard drive is ext4. I did a fugal install and all is well at the moment.

Good to know that Carolina works with ext2 on a usb.

Your implementation of the shutdown dialogue is excellent! I hope you keep it that way and not move to PupShutdown, which I admit to be better than the standard way in Puppy but is way too crowded for me. Likewise, I'm glad that you kept Control Panel instead of PupControl. PupControl is good but your Control Panel is better, for me.

While trying to add Trash to the panel, i found that it showed as a thin line and Trash could not be launched from there.

Thanks for Carolina.
It's my puppy of choice at the moment.

Each page of Xfce Panel preferences have these black boxes. Are they supposed to look like this?

Thanks for the bug catching guy's.

The shutdown dialogue will be staying, with the one in Saluki I had pressed the wrong button a number of times, this way there is less chance of doing that.

There are no plans to add PupShutdown or PupControl, yes radky has done a great job with these, but the Xfce Contol Panel is adequate.

I'll start hunting down the problem with the trash panel plugin.

@pemasu ,

Thank you again for your assistance, it definitely made the task easier.

I see your using hicolor what is the style in Appearance and Window Manager, I can't reproduce what you show, the closest I can get is using Gflat-graphite, yes it does look a little dark.

EDIT: I'm guessing it's a incompatible gtk style for the panel, it does the same in Saluki.

Geoffrey is testing a new version of the pup-volume-monitor right now. The new version appears to have corrected that behavior. If it proves stable, it will be used in Carolina-002.

Please keep up the good work on Carolina. It looks great and works well on both my laptop and desktop.

I can also confirm that the carolina-firmware-fix-0.0.1-pemasu.pet has solved the wireless connection problem. Now I just need to get the audio working ....

Thanks to everyone involved

Try the firmware update pet on the first post of this thread. It includes the missing firmware for audio and may resolve your sound issues.

This has been fixed in patch-004. Thanks for bringing it to our attention.
