usually updating controls are found in EDIT --->preferences. It may be unchecked. For Addons, TOOLS ---> Addons ---> Extensions. IMHO, don't rely upon about config for update manipulation.

For USB wifi dongles which contain the Realtek RTL8192DU chipset,
here is the 8192du driver.

This is the official kernel development driver, with source code taken from here -
https://github.com/lwfinger/rtl8192du
The vendor-supplied version of the driver failed to compile against the Slacko kernel.

Please note this driver is compatible ONLY with the "PAE" version of Slacko 5.7.
Plug in your wifi dongle only after installing the dotpet. Then run the Network Wizard.
8192du-k3.10.32.pet

EDIT: the mt7601Usta USB wifi driver has been reported as unreliable under Slacko 5.7,
so I have removed it.

For USB wifi dongles which contain the MediaTek MT7601U chipset, your best bet is to use Tahrpup 6.x along with the mt7601Usta driver provided by rcrsn51 here -

Slacko-5.7.0-pae is still my number-1 Puppy and has been working flawlessly, except...
Since the clocks were put forward 1 hour to BST...
Slacko isn't doing it, so it's always 1 hour behind the clocks.
I can sync it manually, and have it set to autostart the auto-sync at boot time, but it isn't happening. Sad

Anyone have any ideas?

Many boots later...
For some reason I don't understand...
Suddenly at this session...
The time is correctly synchronized. Very Happy Confused

This is due to updates of timezones in glibc sylvander. It's not a good thing to replace in a live operating environment as all sorts of weird things can happen. I hope (if still using slacko-5.7) that you can put up with the difference next year.

Cheers.

What are "updates of timezones", and what is "glibc"?

What is the thing that is replaced, and how?
And...
What is a "live operating environment"?

What difference?
And why next year?

As you can tell from the above, it's like you are talking Greek or Latin to me.
I hope you can explain to me in terms that someone of little Puppy knowledge and understanding might comprehend.
Such that a child might understand.

p.s.
4. I discovered at the beginning of this session that the time IS NOT SYNCHRONIZED...
I must have manually sync'd it [at the beginning of the previous session] and then forgotten I'd done it.
Ho-hum.

glibc is the basis of the distro. Everything compiled is dependent on it. It contains all sorts of stuff including timezone information, which does change for various timezones over the years as local jurisdictions change their laws on daylight-savings and the like.

When this happens it is updated, however it is not a simple update to apply to a puppy version. I'm not sure that this is your problem though. A 'live' system is one that runs in RAM, typical of puppy in a frugal or USB install or running off CD. glibc is builtin at woof level and various manipulations are done to it with woof so can't be updated on a 'live' system. Usually time problems can be resolved with Psync.

What is your time problem? Can it be resolved with Psync? All that Psync does is get the time from your local 'time server'. Psync can be set to run everytime you restart X so should keep your time in sync. There are explanations all over the web on what a 'time server' is and where they are located.

I hope this helps.

1. "I hope this helps"
It certainly does. Very Happy
I don't have your depth of understanding, but I get the general idea.

2. "Psync can be set to run everytime you restart X so should keep your time in sync"
I have mine configured to auto-sync during each Puppy startup, but it seems to be not working, since the time is WRONG at the beginning of each session including this one.

3. PROBLEM SOLVED! Very Happy
I deleted the pupsave and replaced it with a backup copy, and the problem is GONE [fingers crossed it will continue to be gone].

01micko:
Good to see you here in 2015.

I have a question about CD-Live. I know its running deprecated file-layering. When I boot CD the drive icons appear, but do not change their status if I access the hdd for example, or even plug in a USB flash stick. Is this to be expected, or is this a bug? I realize pmount solves.

I cannot duplicate this problem with Slacko 5.7.0.

sorry, this is the non-pae.
Update: tonite, I had to go live-CD again and mnt-unmnt of the hdd did display correctly. But plug in a stick and no icon. Could it be that changing the default user from puppypcXXXXXX to anything else causes this?
