I have waited that aufs3.8 has been published. Now it has. I have compiled 3.8.2 kernel with f2fs support and I am now checking the firmwares for drivers and testing sns - frisbee interusability. The woof downloaded for this first test build the peebee version from common repo and I have changed now the woof to use noarch repo version. The second test build is now under work.

I have updated wpa_supplicant to version 1.0 and I have used rerwins newer dropwait patched dhcpcd. I have also gone through Barrys SPECS in woof for Precise Puppy and fixed my used SPECS.

The 3.8.2 nonPAE kernel is in use in this post. 01micko has been busy, he has created PHATslacko using about samely configured 3.8.2 kernel build...so it looks to be fine for Puppy.

Now that aufs and woof situation seems to be settled after flurry activity I am going to soon publish nonPAE Precise Puppy version.

Why new kernel and not retro. The reason is simple. The hardware needed drivers will support also newer comps and the older ones should not have much problems with newer kernel. My several tests and experimental builds has shown that older comps and laptops work fine with newer nonPAE kernel. There has been a lot problems with wireless with previous kernels. I hope that most of those problems have been fixed by patches in newer kernel.
There is though the need for checking that the firmware base is up to date but that can be done since the nonPAE kernel Upup Precise has been uploaded.....soon.

Thanks Bt, will look into the boot-up time a little more. Yes, pfix=ram, without adjuncts in the first instance.
Later: Aha! 1min22s from a DVD-RW. I usually use/recycle my vast collection of CD-RW.
But this one is slower than the alphas, betas, rc-s measured on the same kit.
Even later: Confirmed 2min12s from CD-RW. Odd!

About that sound problem I mentioned above with the Radeon HD 6250/6310, I read on different forums that users with similar hardware and the same problem solved this by blacklisting the snd-hda-codec-hdmi module or by creating a asound.conf file .

I'm not knowledgeable enough to oversee this, but maybe this is the direction towards a solution?

same bug with nouveau as in precise 5.4.3
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=84002

the menu text is not showing as well as some icons and their text.
I switched themes, still no good

under racy 5.5 which I think uses nouveau everything looks fine,
racy will also easily switch to nvidia driver version 173 in my case

All working in my install. I have to signal freezes of PPM in some situations: but it's written in releases notes that PPM is not perfect.

For PPM, I use the interface "ziggy", it prevents freezes.

I SOLVED THE SOUND ISSUE WITH THE Radeon HD 6250/6310 CHIP (I'm happy)

.http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=691452#691452

The volume control on the taskbar still doesn't work though : it is always set to maximum and can't be lowered.

Why in Precise can not disconnect modem? In Slacko, Wary, Lucid, Puppy4.3.1, Puppy4.2.1 not problem.

witekjeden , dunno exactly why, but this happened to me also in dpup-485 and squeeze-pup by iguleder. Seems that it is a feature patch built into whatever .

To kill pgprs-connect:
Code:
kill -s HUP `pidof pppd`

in a separate terminal.

3builddistro file explains why the libblkid is not used from this util-linux pet, there is preference of other package for that lib and so...it has been dismissed.

How do we replace the lost functions then? It seems a few things require this library
