I hate to do this to you, but after installing a second browser (I now have 2) the browser selection seems to have the same problem.
After choosing one, that seems to be the only one that is listed when you click on Browser selection.
The other browser does not show up in the list of selections.

Would this help to fix the sys-info problem?

PostPosted: Sat 20 Oct 2012, 06:57    Post subject: nvidia-glx-304.60  

nvidia-glx-304.60-k3.2.29.sfs and pet are available.
http://shino.pos.to/party/bridge.cgi?puppy/precise/
Works on Puppy precise RC-1 and beta7, but doesn't work with nopae kernel.
Made by the getnvidia-0.8.1.
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=72405

Usage:
1. Boot precise with boot parameter 'puppy pfix=nox'.
2. Run 'xorgwizard', choose 'vesa', 1024x768 may be safe.
3. 'xwin' to get graphical desktop.
4. Click the nvidia-glx-304.60-k3.2.29.sfs and choose 'Install'.
5. Skip the launcher 'Nvidia config'.
6. Run 'xorgwizard', choose 'probe'.

PostPosted: Sat 20 Oct 2012, 08:53    Post subject: rt2800usb  

Been holding off on this hoping to find a configuration that would work before the new release, even tried installing two different frisbee configs with no luck.

rt2800usb
LinksysAE1000

WiFi (wlan0) has NOT worked since 5.2.60 version where it setup without any problem!

Everything appears to setup properly but it just doesn't make the final connection.

Latest... Exprimo, Slacko-using frisbee both setup wlan0 without a problem in a matter of minutes on the same system.

Precise Puppy RC2 is out, see blog announcement:

http://bkhome.org/blog/?viewDetailed=03057

I missed a couple of the things above, such as updated defaults-chooser -- that will go into the 5.4-final.

Downloaded from your site - I have noticed recently that Ibibilo site is very slow - Your site was approx 2 and 1/2 times faster.

Booted live cd and looked it over - looks good - Next will do full install to ext4 partition and advise any problems.

Hope you can get a final soon and post to Distrowatch. Note that Puppy is number 12 - Need a boost to get us back in top ten

Thanks for all your hard work.

Personally, I don't care for the wallpaper nor icons, but things working a lot better now even on mid-aged kit.
Opera still not appearing as a .pet, in the PPM but the d/l fromwww.opera.com using DEB(Other) works immediately with default FP - great innovation. Unfortunately, Opera appears in the Utility menu sub-division rather than Internet, but it also starts from the Console.
Interesting: previous RC ran a lot slower on better kit, but this one runs nicely on old technology.
Spoilt for choice now - Slackos & Carolinae as well as Luppies all seem to be at advanced stages of development.
Would be nice if efforts could now return to Racy, which seems to be in favour with everyone and the RPi , which has v.B available now with 512Mb.

Manual frugal install to a 1tb usb 3.0 external hard drive.

VIDEO REPORT: Precise Puppy, version 5.3.97

Chip description:
Intel Corporation Ivy Bridge Graphics Controller

Driver used by Xorg:
intel

Video mode used by Xorg:
Resolution: Depth 24 Depth: "Display"

Display
Resolution 1920x1080 pixels
Vendor The X.Org Foundation
Version 1.11.3

OpenGL
Vendor Tungsten Graphics, Inc
Renderer Mesa DRI Intel(R) Ivybridge Desktop x86/MMX/SSE2
Version 2.1 Mesa 8.0.4
Direct Rendering Yes

# glxgears
Running synchronized to the vertical refresh. The framerate should be
approximately the same as the monitor refresh rate.
303 frames in 5.0 seconds = 60.410 FPS
301 frames in 5.0 seconds = 60.001 FPS
301 frames in 5.0 seconds = 60.001 FPS


Computer
Processor 4x Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-3550 CPU @ 3.30GHz
Memory 8198MB (205MB used)

Network controller Ralink corp. RT5390 Wireless 802.11n 1T/1R PCIe
xHCI Host Controller
USB 3.0 Desktop HD

It's working okay so far, highlighting and copying text from one
document to another is a little difficult because the highlighted text
doesn't show as highlighted at first but is once you click on the
destination document.
I couldn't find the report-video file in /tmp/root, changed the
wallpaper to one a little easier on the eyes.
I still need to add applications from ppm.

EDIT:I added several applications in ppm with no problems,
kdegames,vlc,neverputt, and audacious.

Looking good Smile

a note to packagers,

the directories '/lib/i386-linux-gnu' and '/usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu' are actually symlinks to the '/lib/' and '/usr/lib' directories. This doesn't cause a problem with .pets but does with .sfs packages,. So when making an .sfs you will need to move the contents of eg: '/usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu' to '/usr/lib'.. and the same for '/lib'
