I have noticed in the newer PUPs we have that there is a service running which is at the top of the system queue for processor; namely netmon_wce. Easily seen via htop utility.

Could someone explain what it is doing in constant use of the processor?

Not a good start!

I will wait until mid November for 6.1,
perhaps the dust will have settled by then.

Regards.

What other puppies work for you? No one else has reported this issue so far I think. Sounds like your download is corrupt? Without specs or how you booted it's hard to know what is happening, not sure how 6.1 could fix your issue except by luck.

I think it's the box that keeps track of how much data you're using
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=100406

For me it's using about 0.5% CPU (same as "retroval -hide", "jwm", "X :0 -br -nolisten", "htop" on average).

netmon_wce is a complete rewrite of the old network_tray with vastly improved efficiency in memory and processor usage and new features added such as wireless icons and wireless signal strength polling.

If anyone has issues with it feel free to report in the linked thread.

I'm using it now. It has a quirk though which I haven't seen before and feel I should mention; when I tried to set up the Internet I got the message, “Unable to connect to the network”, despite the fact all the lights in my router were on.

When I got this for the third time I decided to ignore it and just press the DHCP button in the connection wizard to set it up as normal, and it worked just fine. I'm posting from 6.0.8.1 now.

Also, I couldn't find a spell checker in Abiword. Is it not meant to have one, to save space?


Funny about the dhcp thing. Might be a quirk with your kernel module. You can try the change_kernels script if you like to see if that improves things.

The spellchecker misses a dictionary. I installed one and it still doesn't work. I might have to recompile abiword; libaspell is present, so is enchant and they are both dependencies.

Thanks

I installed Slacko 6.0.8.1 and so far it is working fine.

I installed my right click utility and it is working well except for
a bad right click link to 'Search inside' for pfind

PostPosted: Thu 05 Nov 2015, 19:53    Post subject: JWM Tray 2 Button add error  

I am running a frugal install of Slacko 6.0.8.1 32-bit. I added some additional Buttons to the Tray 2 (Top) using the Edit Tray application. The entry I added for galculator didn't launch the app. On investigation, I noticed the entry created for this button is in spanish. All other buttons have been created correctly and function correctly.

I have manually corrected the entry, which is now working.

Apart from this little glitch, all is working really well. Particularly like having a second JWM panel.

01micko,

Something to consider adding to Slacko.

JWMDesk-1.2

Not just yet. Maybe for the repo. It will conflict with jwm_config.

I'm testing some time now. It looks good both in fresh install and updates of older versions. Very Happy
However given the massive changes in jwm and jwm tools, updating 5.9.x is pretty messy when it comes to UI elements.
Updating from 6.0.x is better but I believe to fully appreciate the new UI and UI tools, a fresh install is better.
For the final/RC2 maybe add a special update script to wipe previous jwm, jwm tools and jwm settings so the new UI can also work after an update.

Hmmm.. what about a script called from delayedrun that pops a message then pops ptheme? (if updating from less than 6.0). I believe giving the user control of the tidy up may make them happier.. or not! Laughing

I was also thinking to make a very plain theme for ptheme (standard puppypin, no extra tray) and make it default. but if they have done a lot of customisation it ends up a mess anyway.

The problem is that if you leave the old settings in and then at some point run pdesktop, you get a mess.
If you want to go that way then you'll need a pdesktop_first_run script that will first pop a warning, and on user aproval will delete all the old stuff and then run.
