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

Oops. Thanks, fixed.

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.


Wary will work, Racy won't.

Racy Puppy version 5.4.93, released Mar 2013

Using an E732 laptop - 2gig ram and an i3 proc.

Manual frugal to an ntfs partition and booting via grub4dos on an SDcard.

Top indicates virtually zero resource usage and Hardinfo shows a temp average of 44c.

Looks and feels nice - all the basics working OOTB.

(5.4.91 seems a tiny tad snappier - guessing that is because of the different kernel) (must try both on my 10yr old Acer laptop)
(must also try latest Wary on the old Acer - maybe more appropriate)

Luvly Puppy - report FYI - many thanks - Ray

Wary5.4.90

After years of having a nice simple "Grub Legacy";
Wary is now saddled with a convoluted, confusing, unusable,
version known as "Kent Robotti Grub Legacy".

Make that thing go away!!!

Racy 5.5 RC2 on Dell D430,

Everything looks good,

When I was doing a remaster using live cd it would not finish because it said there was no boot loader I tried 4 times to do a remaster even once with virtual cd and the same thing happened.

I do like the look and feel.


Cheers

Racy-5.4.91

Running like an old trooper!

Can't find any major faults with it at all so far.

One minor thing... the fonts in Seamonkey Browser Headings could be a tad bit larger say maybe at least a #12 or #13 (good heavy text though, not chicken-scratch Smile By the way, nice larger and heavier fonts on the rest of Racy... 'thanks.'

From my end, I'd say she's about ready for the 5.5 label!

I have had a go at making a .pet of the nvidia 173.14.36 legacy driver for Racy with kernel 3.0.66

Tested here on my GeForce FX 5200 card and works OK.

Please advise about anything that needs changing or improving in the pinstall and puninstall scripts though, as I am not certain about those.

Folks constantly confuse FONTS with 'font size', correctly named POINT SIZE

Of course one can have larger fonts, but they will look different, not necessarily be bigger.
It's important to adopt correct terminology usage for anyone engaged in serious document composition, editing and information dissemination.

Hello Barry,

(Racy5.4.93)
Is it possible to put the same nice wallpaper of Wary (default) in Racy?


I think it's a really great one.

Thanks for everything!

Freco.
