Subject description: Test Test Test
 

OK Barry is welcoming tests for this version
PSIP - a softphone is included and this will allow easier communication

I am downloading the version with undev not included
but I already tested this with 4.1 Alpha 3 and adding it to skiplist
made no difference . . .

Anyway hope it works - I may change my PC to use it
- a bit drastic (have to used change a shared power supply)
- or may try it on an old laptop running without a HD . . .

Download link from Barrys blog

"reboot" froze: 2 partitions mounted

Gateway 2000, 64 MB, Linux swap
Puppy 404-CD: pfix=ram

Mounted 2 HD partitions.
Later, selected Shutdown > "reboot"
Everything froze.
Mouse cursor wouldn't move,
CTRL-ALT-BKSP ineffectual,
Time/Clock stood still.

I did a power off/on frugal boot ok.

Set up the wireless network and was unable to scan or connect to the network. The ZD1211 USB wireless module is loaded but failed the wireless test. Pwireless was no help either. It all worked in Puppy 3.0 and 4.0 Dingo.

Just curious....

Isn't the evdev module needed for touchpads on laptops?

Fourth attempt to d/l succeeded, ~1hr.
Works more or less the same as previous versions on my bog std. kit. Certainly does not boot any quicker in pfix=ram mode with swap available - probably slower; Seamucker is definitely slower as well as those intrusive, unwanted exhortations to select a function now interfere, too.
Whatever happened to MUT2?

PostPosted: Thu 17 Jul 2008, 08:26    Post subject: great server!  

Testing my usual AMD 2+ Ghz machine with 128 MB RAM and SiS chipset.
Edit: Am using the ISO with evdev.

I was admiring fast CGI in the Hiawatha conf file when the PC hung! These were what I did before that:
- fired and appreciated Zigbert's PBurn, also the Xsoldier game;
- tested eth0 and then RT73 USB adapter - both work out of the box;
- started Hiawatha and PPLOG (what's the password???);
- browsed PPLOG and edited index.htm in Hiawatha's root - server seems unaffected;
- I was looking at the server httpd.conf file when the PC hung.

The keyboard kept flashing, and CRTL-ALT-DEL did nothing. However, pressing the button shut the PC down.

Now am typing in Alpha4 in my Celeron 850 + SiS chipset at home. Only the browser was opened. So far OK, will keep this running for three hours. No problem so far.

Subject description: Alternate download location
 

Here is an alternate download location:

http://puppylinux.ca/puppyfiles/test/puppy-4.1alpha4/

I tested this on my 4 year old Laptop:
- Booted faster than the earlier versions
- Network was setup without problems. But still feel a little slower on the connection. (rt2500 module - wlan)

I did not test much. Will post back later.

PostPosted: Thu 17 Jul 2008, 12:28    Post subject: Seamonkey 1.11 instability  

I'm booting 404 from CD with a pup_save on flash.

As compiled, Seamonkey 1.11 appears quite unstable. I experienced one outright crash and three hangs of various extents in the first two hours of testing. The crash did not affect X but SM would not restart. The three hangs partially or completely disabled X - no keyboard and/or mouse response.

Please advise as to how I can capture log/debug.

PostPosted: Thu 17 Jul 2008, 12:33    Post subject: UnionFS crashes continue  

I am booting 404 from CD with a pup_save on flash.

I experienced a UnionFS crash (at shutdown) after just four reboots. Output appears similar to that of 400. No way to capture it save a digital snap of the screen.

PostPosted: Thu 17 Jul 2008, 12:40    Post subject: Initial Xfprot connection attempt failing  

I am booting 404 from CD with a pup_save on flash.

Xfprot initiates connection with F-prot server and awaits server response. Connection is not established. Attempt does not time out and must be killed (CTRL-C). My router lights flash a few times initially but no further activity.

PostPosted: Thu 17 Jul 2008, 12:51    Post subject: Strange Pmount GUI behavior  

I am booting 404 from CD with a pup_save on flash.

Pmount's device list is re-arranged the first time a device is mounted. If this is intentional, it's confusing and inconsistent. I don't observe this behavior under Puppy 400.

- The floppy drive initially appears below the HD parts. Mount any HD part and the floppy moves to the top of the list.
- The CD drive initially appears at the bottom of the list. Mount the CD drive and it moves to the top of the list.

I've not exhaustively tested every mount permutation but this GUI behavior is rather disconcerting.

Maximum resolution remains at 800x600 with this i810-based box with either Xorg or xvesa. Show stopper. Still.

PostPosted: Thu 17 Jul 2008, 13:49    Post subject: PETget not connecting to servers  

PETget in 404 appears unable to connect to any server while seeking software in either Puppy4 or Puppy3 repositories (didn't try Puppy2).
Network is otherwise functional.

Note also that the PETget GUI hangs during the connection process. This can confuse, as no status or feedback is provided.
