ChurchPup Release Candidate 1
Just in case anyone was wondering,ChurchPup development continues! Subito has uploaded ChurchPup RC1 to the downdoad site.Here's a quick rundown of the changes from the Beta
*Removed wine and powerpoint (to make the iso smaller)
*Removed VLC media player (same reason)
*Added Roaring Penguin PPPOE(forgot it last time)
*Added Cdmio CD Player ('cause Mplayer apparently doesn't play CDs)
*Different default skin and more codecs for Mplayer (now the default media player)
*Tweaked the default theme for JWM
*Firefox updated to 18.104.22.168
*Cutdown Open Office is used to save space but the program seems to
retain most of it's functionality and can be upgraded through PetGet
*Various small fixes I now have little clear memory of.
The cdmio cd player requires an audio cable be connected between the cdrom and the soundcard unlike Gxine when playing audio cds. Also I have not had the chance to test Roaring Penguin PPPOE yet. VLC,wine and,powerpoint are available for the time being as add on packages Here.
512 megs of ram is still recomended but this version does run with or without a swap partition on 512 megs.
a few Screen shots here
We'd really appreciate some feedback concerning the usefulness of the packages selected. For instance,is Dememo useful to a musician? To me ,a not very musical person, it seems to work OK. Mplayer plays local video files and most DVDs and provides plug-ins for the browser. Is it good enough to be the default media player?
I'll be starting the RC1 feedback thread momentarily so I'll see Y'all there!
