Iblio was very slow - torrents as always welcome

I am in a pristine Puppy 1.0.6 just about to try a few new tricks Smile

Good work Smile
I ran my old pup001 from Puppy 105.

.xinitrc and rc.local0 were overwritten, and I got a new background-image.

The rest seems to work as before, though I have installed dozends of Dotpups including x.org.

Good work.
After I patched image.gz to not use "F" with resize2fs, I also got rid of the annoying 60second-break at startup (seems Barry forgot to add that).

I think the new colors/background are a very good choice, and AlienX remasterscript will encourage me to buold a custimized puppy somewhen Smile

Thanks Barry for all those efforts he made Razz

Bravo for the timely release!

I had scheduled to present Puppy to my local Kitchener-Waterloo Linux User's Group. Luckily I checked to see if there was a new version before heading out to the meeting.

I only had time to burn 6 CDs but that was enough as most have access to high speed.

Everyone at the meeting was favorably impressed. It went really well even though I booted it without trying it first (I did not have enough time at home).

People had a lot of questions and I'm glad to report that puppy had the right answers.

I second MU's opinion on the choice of colors and background. They are really easy on the eye and transmit professional simplicity.

Great work puting it all together Barry.

Woohoo!

This is my lucky day - visiting the other campus of the Univ 80 km away where there is real Internet connection, I was able to do a Puppy upgrade for 15 minutes! er, perhaps 20 ? Embarassed

Got too eager to try it and forgot to watch the clock, but there must be some numbers for the record. Very Happy

I know, "multisession Puppy" is a bit weak... perhaps a competition for best
name. Lobster is first in with "Sizzler"... or is that "Sizzle Puppy"?

Editing this post:
I have just seen your wiki page, Lobster, full name is "Puppy Sizzler"
...yeah, sounds good!

I keep forgetting when I create usr_devx.sfs, as mksquashfs creates it with
permissions 700. Now fixed.

Mark,
Yes, somehow I forgot about that.
Do you know the thread, or recall what was supposed to be fixed?
If I recall, there is an error message when it resizes the f.s., but a subsequent
f.s. check shows it as okay. Meaning, it is not a critical error, just annoying.
-- and of course will cause people great concern when they see it.
So, yeah, I do need to fix it.

Woo Hoo !
downloaded 1.0.6 , and fired up Bits on Wheels on the Mac Mini
was hitting 45 MB/s for a while !
I thought for a while I had a problem , as many of the up-loaders were only getting 3 to 5 MB/s ... then I realized that they are probably on Dial-up ! D'OH
I'll keep it uploading for week or so and let you know the Total Very Happy

Appended: - a little more that an hour and 104 MB uploaded !
that's a full puppy .... and maybe one of the Tailless Breeds LOL

usr_devx.sfs should be updated too on the much faster nluug -mirror.
http://ftp.nluug.nl/ftp/pub/os/Linux/distr/puppylinux/
There is an old 31 MB-file.
