Racy 5.4.93 (5.5RC2) is out. See my blog post:

http://bkhome.org/blog2/?viewDetailed=00157

That should be the last RC, hopefully. There are some little things to fix, but they won't necessitate an RC3.

Bonjour à toutes et tous,

@ Barry Kauler

I didn't get the "Please wait" window. It crashed before.

I ran 'remasterpup2' from a terminal and here is what i got :

Quote:

in file:///usr/share/doc/home.htm link to Barry's blog should link to blog2 Smile

translators may do this in their translated file:///usr/share/doc/home.htm

edited later:
the link is already pointing to blog2 Laughing Embarassed

How did this happen?
I had downloaded and used 5.4.91 Embarassed

Now in Racy 5.4.93 it is OK and (edit: added Racy)

@esmourguit,
are you sure you are using 5.4.93 Question

I could run remasterpup2 without crash now Wink

Just in case you like to try latest remasterpup2 (from latest Racy) before Barry is waking up.

Fresh frugal install of Racy 5.4.9.3 on the Athlon XP box. Sound and internet working on initial boot.......display using incorrect "vesa" driver at 1280x1024.Attempts to use xorgwizard results in a complete freeze as soon as X stops necessitating a hard poweroff.Will copy a good xorg.conf into Racy and report back......always works to get the correct "nouveau" driver and 1400x900 resolution.

Quote:
Racy 5.5RC2 has the 3.0.66 Linux kernel, configured without PAE support (so only accesses first 4MB of RAM), and for a i686 CPU. It has SMP (multi-core) support.


I think that should read:

first 4GB of RAM

I have looked at the pMusic report. It would be great if more users tested this, because I can't reproduce the bug. I need more info.

The updated multiple-soundcard-wizard doesn't seem to work 100% in Racy. I got no sound because Retrovol keeps hw:0 as card, even I chose hw:1 in the wizard. In Slacko, Retrovol shows correct soundcard when opening the configure window.

Will test shortly. Can anyone suggest which things may have trouble on an i586 CPU (AMD K6-2 500) so I can check them? If it needs CMOV it won't work. On one of the earlier builds SeaMonkey bombed out with an Illegal Instruction error.

I still use a very old version of quirky that will halt the computer if I close the lid and restart it with a press of the space bar.

How do we set up any of the newer versions to do the same? Racy 5.5RC2 runs full 'hot' mode and drains batteries with lid closed. Sad

I'm running quirky-5491 from an SDHC card on my AAO netbook.

product: RS880M 01.00
X Server: Xorg Driver: radeon
X.Org version: 1.11.0
dimensions: 1024x600 pixels (270x158 millimeters)
depth of root window: 24 planes
direct rendering: Yes
server glx vendor string: SGI

I've added a few pets and they work fine.
I gave it a 1gb savefile which seems good enough so far.
It's definately fast on this netbook.

Since I have frugal installs of both the latest Racy and Quirky on this old Athlon XP box I did a little very unscientific comparison of boot time and ram usage at idle.
Boot time is the average of 3 boots of each version from selection in grub to a full desktop.


Quirky
boot 23 seconds average

Code:
# free
total used free shared buffers
Mem: 1033472 551252 482220 0 46112
-/+ buffers: 505140 528332
Swap: 1228936 0 1228936
#


Racy
boot 19 seconds average

Code:
# free
total used free shared buffers
Mem: 1033996 166452 867544 0 19424
-/+ buffers: 147028 886968
Swap: 1228936 0 1228936
#


Quirky still has the annoying habit of not booting about 1 time out of 3...... when grub finds the kernel all activity stops necessitating a hard reboot.
