Dpup Stretch 7.5 RC-2
Would it be a good idea to upgrade the D-Bus package?

It appears the libdbus is the official Debian package (version 1.10.16)
But the executables including dbus-daemon are the much older 1.2.4.2pemissive from a .pet package.

Compiling VLC for example, the configure script complains about the old version and disables D-Bus in the build.

I am no expert in these matters, but one option seems to be to use the 2 packages "dbus" and "dbus-x11" from Debian in place of the .pet. In this case the dbus-daemon executable also needs libapparmor as a dependency.

The package libdbus-1-dev also needs to be added to the devx

In my personal Stretch remaster I have also been testing a build from source of D-Bus 1.12.6 with a couple of configure options including --disable-systemd and that seems to be working fine without the extra dependency lib.

My VLC 3.0.1 package contains the needed Qt5 libaries
These are official Debian Stretch versions and are in /usr/lib
Debian do sometimes update their packages.

If you have other programs installed which have different versions of the Qt5 libraries this may cause a conflict so you will need to check this and take steps to only have one suitable version of each library.

Dpup fails to boot from a subdirectory on my USB stick (device sdb1).
I have multiple pups on my stick, all in their dedicated directory.
Directory structure looks like this:
    /mnt/sdb1/grldr
    /mnt/sdb1/menu.lst

    /mnt/sdb1/pup_slacko/initrd.gz
    /mnt/sdb1/pup_slacko/puppy_slacko_5.6.sfs
    /mnt/sdb1/pup_slacko/vmlinuz

    /mnt/sdb1/pup_tahr/vmlinuz
    /mnt/sdb1/pup_tahr/initrd.gz
    /mnt/sdb1/pup_tahr/puppy_tahr_6.0.5.sfs
    /mnt/sdb1/pup_tahr/zdrv_tahr_6.0.5.sfs

    /mnt/sdb1/pup_dpup/adrv_stretch_7.5.sfs
    /mnt/sdb1/pup_dpup/initrd.gz
    /mnt/sdb1/pup_dpup/vmlinuz
    /mnt/sdb1/pup_dpup/zdrv_stretch_7.5.sfs
    /mnt/sdb1/pup_dpup/puppy_stretch_7.5.sfs


Using grub4dos entries in menu.lst look like this. Except for Dpup other Puppies, even very old ones, would boot without problems:
    title Puppy Slacko 5.6
    kernel /pup_slacko/vmlinuz pmedia=usbflash pfix=ram
    initrd /pup_slacko/initrd.gz

    title Puppy Tahr 6
    kernel /pup_tahr/vmlinuz pmedia=usbflash pfix=ram
    initrd /pup_tahr/initrd.gz

    title Puppy Dpup Stretch 7.5 CE (RC-2)
    kernel /pup_dpup/vmlinuz pmedia=usbflash pfix=ram
    initrd /pup_dpup/initrd.gz


Dpup tells me that it fails to locate the main sfs on sda1 (!).
Why can't Dpup find the file on the boot device like other puppies and how can I fix it?

Wireless, DE-actiivate ethernet because two interfaces are active in Frisbee, and they will fight together. Do It manually.
When Ethernet is available that is my Choice and i Don't use Frisbee.

You can trust Puppies Stretch much better than Xenial.. They are several versions but quite the same, available in All'ys archive. Which one to choose ?

An idea : nowadays most puppies are build on the fly ? What do i mean ? Builder is like a bee.. he likes to install new stuff. But not to support users..
When you find one who cares of feedback, keep on working with his stretch

Maybe try adding the psubdir kernel parameter:-

title Puppy Dpup Stretch 7.5 CE (RC-2)
kernel /pup_dpup/vmlinuz pmedia=usbflash pfix=ram psubdir=/pup_dpup
initrd /pup_dpup/initrd.gz


I have not tried this in USB but I always use it with my subdir frugals in HDD
No guarantee that it will work, but perhaps the requirement for it has become stricter in this Puppy.

In early tests I also found WiFi internet connection to have problems.
My solution was to install and use PeasyWiFi 4.5
http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=94501
This has worked perfectly for me.
It uses udhcpc (busybox) rather than dhcpcd (which the other networking tools use).

Note for Stretch Pup development:-
If there are other reports of WiFi issues it might be an idea to keep an eye on dhcpcd
I recall there was a .pet version of this with a "dropwait" feature which was being used in Puppy some time ago. Otherwise perhaps an upgrade or a recompile or some other tweak.
