Yes, the remasterpup2 script has a bug.

I made a change at the last minute to the 'cp' command, added the '-n' option, which I got out of an online man page.

But, the 'cp' in Puppy does not support -n, so I have changed it to -u

Try the attached. Gunzip it, place at /usr/sbin, make sure permissions are executable.


I should explain a bit more. I did test "cp -n" before releasing 5.5-final, but only on Precise Puppy, which works. It seems that Wary/Racy has an older 'coreutils' package, the 'cp' of which does not support the '-n' option.

Wary Puppy version 5.5, released Mar 2013

Linux puppypc17137 2.6.32.59 #1 Mon Apr 2 19:19:10 GMT-8 2012 i686 GNU/Linux

Using the 10yr old Acer laptop - manual frugal to ext3 partition - booting with grub4dos.

Nice to have a current Puppy that still offers the traditional txt setup with a quick and easy option into Xvesa.
(noticed an unusually long delay after selecting UK keyboard)
(just long enough to make a n00b sweat and think “have I done something wrong”)

Used Xvesa for a while and all appears to be good OOTB.

Exit to prompt and ran xorgwizard to setup Xorg - all good and straight forward.

Used Xorg as normal and all seems very good OOTB.
Very low resource usage and temp. average 50c.
So Wary 5.5 seems perfect for this age and type of machine.

All in - an outstanding Puppy - many thanks - Ray

Hmmm, yes. Your sed line is an easy fix.

Wary is excellent as always, the most usable ootb linux distro for my hardware.

I'd like future versions of Wary to have this version of glipper-lite.
It's about the same size, UI is better, but more importantly it's more likely to survive tray restarts.

Or if not on i586 you can try the latest Seamonkey which, despite its ever-increasing size, has improved tremendously with overall responsiveness since version 2.6. It doesn't need newer glibc, just dbus (or nobus)

racy tray battery ok wary no

ASUS 701 Eee PC, 900 MHz, 4 GB SSD, 512 MB RAM

This was just given to me after sitting in a garage for a few years. Battery charges fully, giving good runtime.

racy5.5 manual frugal
wary5.5 manual frugal

racy tray shows the battery charging, as well as hardinfo.
racy tray follows the charge light on the ASUS.

wary tray on the other hand, shows no charge, and hardinfo agrees, even though the ASUS charge light shows charging.

So... racy monitors battery ok, but wary battery monitor does not work.

Both racy and wary play ted.com videos.
Compiled Sylpheed 340beta2 and vim 7.3.843, work great.
Seamonkey browses well.

Hello, all.

Just a note:

I didn't catch the release candidate thread before it was closed, so I'm putting my user's note here.

If you install pdfedit, it will probably need a libaudio library, which is absent in wary 5.4.90. Why an audio library in a text processing program I do not know, but pdfedit refuses to launch without it.

I did a micro-version update from 5.4.90 to 5.5 so it's impossible to re-check now in my 5.5, but nevertheless, if you install pdfedit in wary 5.5 and it does not work, try to think of this solution.


Best regards.

Everything looked nice but for whatever reason it was unable to locate a network [posting from older puppy]. Will try again later.

Seamonkey offered to update when selecting HELP icon on desktop - nice - all smoothly done.
Top indicates low resources and hardinfo shows temp at 53c (both similar to Wary) nice.

Generally all the basics seem to be working OOTB. Luvly Puppy.

SeaMonkey has the same problem as Firefox. Cannot compile latest versions in Wary.

I'm not compiling it, just running it. An official build of Seamonkey 2.17b1 (which I believe parallels Firefox 20) runs perfectly fine on stock Wary.

Subject description: short test report
 

Racy 5.5 frugal install on USB stick.

Dell Lattitude 6470: Racy will not shut down normal way. It will clear screen, but wallpaper remains. And stay in this phase. It will not show the black screen showing "saving to ...".

ASUS EeePC1001HA: works fine WIFI, screen, audio, battery etc,, Installed some eye candy, then played with function keys on EeePC (volume up/down, brightness up-down) all fine, until I tried WIFI on-off (FN+F2). WIFI turned off. But this key cannot enable WIFI anymore. I enabled WIFI again via SNS. But when I shut Puppy down, no save file update happened. I lost all my eye candy....
Not sure what happened, might have been an accident, but FN+F2 caused problems in many puppies. as long as you don't use it Racy works fine.

Only thing I miss in Racy is the option to have only 5 icons on the desktop. (Slacko has it). But I have to congratulate with the size. This series of puppies is in the 120Mbyte range. Others (Precise/Slacko) are 150mbytes+.

Naming: what is mainstream puppy now ? I know Wary 5.5 is for older stuff, but Racy 5.5 / Slacko 5.5 / Precise 5.5 ... all offer more or less the same. Which one will be mainstream and maintained ?

I had to install dbus-glib (I keep the pet handy) but SeaMonkey 2.17b1 is running fine here as well.The official builds are quite a bit larger than Barry K's compiles though.
