Dang, ok, am going to download the ISO (and md5sum check it again) and see if the third time is a charm.

I've never had any problems with save files or save folders, though I only
use save folders nowdays. I only use frugals to hard drive.

Since a manual frugal install takes about a minute I did another and went with a Ext4 savefile this time.No problem,rebooted with a working savefile.

PUPSFS='sdb1,ext4,/pup11/puppy_xenialpup64_7.0.8.6.sfs'

#ATADRIVES is all internal ide/pata/sata drives, excluding optical, excluding usb...
ATADRIVES='sda sdb '
#ATAOPTICALDRIVES is list of non-usb optical drives...
ATAOPTICALDRIVES='sr0 '
#these directories are unionfs/aufs layers in /initrd...
RW_LAYER='/pup_rw'
SAVE_LAYER='/pup_rw'
PUP_LAYER='/pup_ro2'
#The partition that has the xenialpup64save file is mounted here...
PUP_HOME='/mnt/dev_save'
#(in /initrd) ...note, /mnt/home is a link to it.
#this file has extra kernel drivers and firmware...
ZDRV='sdb1,ext4,/pup11/zdrv_xenialpup64_7.0.8.6.sfs'
FDRV=''

Desktop calc icon.
Click on and Gnumeric spreadsheet opens.

I think the "calc" icon on Desktop has always opened Gnumeric, at least on all the puppies I've tried since I started using puppy. The first time I clicked it I thought it was a bit strange, but not really I guess. One of the icons probably should open Gnumeric, I suppose, and back then the icon looked like a graph and spreadsheet (and I believe still in Slacko) so it was a bit more obvious what calc did. I guess the "S icon" in Xenialpup stands for Spreadsheet, or "something" or "secret" or "surprise" ? I think S is one of the english letters with the most words so it could almost anything you want to fit I guess... if it even is an S (or maybe 5?) Smile

From The Free On-line Dictionary of Computing (18 March 2015) [foldoc]:

Quote:
Calc

<tool, mathematics> An extensible, advanced desk calculator
and mathematical tool written in {Emacs Lisp} by Dave
Gillespie <daveg@synaptics.com>. Calc runs as part of {GNU
Emacs}. You can use Calc as only a simple four-function
calculator, but it also provides additional features including
choice of algebraic or {RPN} ({stack}-based) entry,
logarithms, trigonometric and financial functions, {arbitrary
precision}, complex numbers, vectors, matrices, dates, times,
infinities, sets, algebraic simplification, differentiation,
and integration.


That is what the icon looks like.
A desk calculator.
Well, I guess with some of the icon theme sets, it does.
Some icon sets use a desk calculator looking icon and some use a spreadsheet looking one.

If it is going to open Gnumeric. To me the icon should be named Gnumeric or spreadsheet and have an icon like a spreadsheet.
Here is example from different icon theme sets.

Yet another puppy beta, and this one works fine too.

For those with Broadcom hardware, here is the wl wifi driver, and here is the 1570 webcam driver for XenialPup (or kernel 4.9.58 amd64)
The wl wifi driver was compiled from the ubuntu zesty sources (Xenial sources are for k4.4 and will fail on XenialPup) and the bcwc webcam driver from this github source.

Cheers

hi peebee,

i think right clicking makes minixcal disappear.

Save folder.

I can live with this and have been for some time.
Just wonder why it is required in Xenialpup.

Video card Nvidia GeForce GTX 970.

Initial first boot, have to use nouveau.modeset=0 to get to visible desktop.

In testing Zestypup and Artfulpup this is not needed.
They initially boot to a working desktop. No added options needed.

Something you may want to look into.


hi bigpup,

i've no idea why this is required with xenialpup64. do you need to use the same option with xenialpup32 bit as well? if so can you try the 32bit xenialpup with artfuls kernel. just copy the vmlinux & zdrv.sfs over renaming the zdrv.sfs


i've also sent you a PM

hi mavrothal,

7.0.8.5 was good apart from the rox pinboard bug when changing wallpapers. but after being away for so long and the build now requiring new .deps i thought it better to post 7.0.8.6 as a beta first. prior to that there were some really bed issues with the system freezing

i'll be updating the 32bit xenialpup this coming week and if nothing major is discovered it'll be a 32&64bit 7.0.9 release..... finally Rolling Eyes

thanks for the drivers

Well, in Linux it has always been called a directory, but it seems a folder is now just as usable a name.

Just because it always was, does not make it always so, for ever more!

calc
There are other Puppy versions that use spreadsheet as the icon label.
There is a calc in the menu.
menu>Business>Ycalc
That is no spreadsheet program.

I understand using the word calc.
That is a very technical term for the software code for the type of calculation it does.
The name has a history in Linux software naming.
But it is still using a icon that is named spread for spreadsheet.

If I told anybody at work to go work it up in a calc program. I would get a blank stare. Shocked

If I told them to give me a spreadsheet on it. It would be understood!

OK I fixed it for me.

As far as I know there is no "puppy 7" ever released.
Puppy 7.0.9 or any other point release as "official" after puppy 6.3 would be confusing and may go unnoticed.

You might want to discuss it with Mick and probably PB regarding release schedule and versioning.

PostPosted: Mon 30 Oct 2017, 13:52    Post subject: Xenial Pup 64
Subject description: XenialPup64 and web browsers
 

Hello! On my PC, I have used Puppy Linux as my only operating system since version 5.2.8.
I am currently using QuirkyXerus64-8.3 and XenialPup64 7.0.8.6. and both systems work
perfectly. About XenialPup64 7.0.8.6, for me it serves as a final release.

CPU 2X Intel Pentium G3260 Dual Core, 3.30Ghz
Intel HD Graphics Vídeo onboard
RAM 4Gb DDR3 1.600 Mhz
Motherboard ASUSTeK COMPUTER INC. H81M-C/BR
Monitor SAMSUNG LED, resolution 1920X1080
Connect: Moden ADSL via cable

WEB BROWSERS:
Google Chrome 62.0.3202.62, Vivaldi 1.12.955.36-1, Opera 48.0.2685.39, work perfectly and Firefox Nightly 58.0 gives us a view of what will be the new Mozilla Firefox from version 57. Get to see endings in NETFLIX without crashes due to lack of plugins or for not being recognized as an updated Browser.

Bye! Seamonkey, Firefox ESR, Waterfox, Palemoon, Chromium, Midori, Dillo, Netsurf, Tor, Xombrero e outros...

BUG:
For the proper functioning of the audio in Firefox, it is necessary that the libs in usr/lib/apulse/, are located in usr/lib/ e I solved the problem by copying and pasting it in the right place.
