Same here, I've also reported this in the beta thread(s).

This is the best base pup yet. It's fast, new icons and background looks great, and everything appears to work on my system. Also on an old Sony laptop with only 64MB ram.

Only one problem, a frugal installation on an ext4 partition (created by pup) still is not recognized. Otherwise support for ext4 looks good.

Great job team,
Jim

PPM bugs:

- When installing the cursor_themes-1 package with the Puppy package Manager, the available free space is incorrectly calculated and displayed.

- In Puppy 4.1.2 / 4.2 'Package' icons are displayed beside each package in the PPM package list. The PPM in Puppy 4.3 doesn't display anything.

- After uninstalling the cursor_themes-1 package, pcur still lists all the cursor themes.
The cursor theme folders in ~/.icons are not deleted.

PostPosted: Sat 19 Sep 2009, 17:37    Post subject: Missing programs and internet connection  

I understand it's very early days but cant seem to fix this problem.
Installed 4.3.0 today replacing 4.2.1.by making the recomended changes to the existing pupsave file.
All seemed to boot ok but on reboot lost internet connection and it cant seem to locate any network card using Wizard.Reinstalled again but still the same errors.No problems auto detecting and connecting with all my other distros.

Also cant gain access to the control panel or several other programs from the menu and Pwidget not functioning either.

Regards

Puppy 421 was a community effort; 4.3 was built by Barry and
is quite different, doesn't have the looks (pwidgets), same
kernel in every version and other changes.

Would have been best to try the new iso independently.

I understand where your coming from and will certainly have a go but does that not go against the grain with regards to easliy updating without the loss of data from one pupsave file to another ?

If you followed this:

From the announcement thread:

Upgrading from an earlier puppy. If you have a "pup_save" file and you want to upgrade it, it has to be renamed. Say that you are booting from live-CD and you have 'pup_save-john.2fs' on the hard drive (or whatever) -- make a copy of it (to be on the safe side!) named 'pupsave.2fs', then boot or reboot Puppy 4.3. That's it, pup 4.3 only recognises save files of name 'pupsave*.2fs' (where '*' means wildcard).

.............then it's possibly a corrupted save file.

Subject description: My way of upgrading from e.g 4.2.1 to 4.3 final
 

I upgraded from a frugal installation of 4.2.1 to 4.3. using the scheme

1. Copy the 4.2.1 root folder to /mnt/home.

2. Install 4.3 on the partition where 4.2.1 resides

3. Install pet and sfs packages.

4. Copy personal folders and configuration scripts from 4.2.1 root to 4.3 root.

Cheers Very Happy

PostPosted: Sun 20 Sep 2009, 01:20    Post subject: Intel 537 modem modules corrected to avoid depmod-FULL loop
Subject description: Buillt normally after source edits.
 

Attached are the corrected Intel537 drivers that do not upset depmod-FULL. The firmware got changed, too. I edited the source code to substitute my names for "Intel537" and built the modules legitimately -- no "trickery." I will follow up with the new source tarball and instructions in a day or two. (It's very late here.)

UPDATE 10/6/09: I have added an updated modem.rules file to the firmware dotpet. The rules file distinguishes a particular Intel537 modem from an Intel536 modem, both of which have the same vendor and device IDs. The file is now compatible with the kernel 2.6.25.16 version of puppy 4.3, in addition to 4.3.1-2.6.30.5. Therefore, it can be installed there to avoid needing separate modem-rules files for each version of 4.3.x. I have not tested it with the 2.6.21... version, but expect it should work. (I will verify that in coming days.)

i am wondering if i need to use these update drivers? and if so which one(s)?
everyone is saying how fast 430 is but mine, 430small, is noticeably slower than anything puppy i have used recently. mainly seamonkey usage is noticeably slow because thats what i have mainly used so far or is it just the new seamonkey that is slower than my usual opera and previous seamonkeys? .

I'm unable to boot using Barry's 4.3. It's unable to locate pup-430.sfs. I boot from an ext4 partition, and GRUB is configured correctly.

However, booting from a flash drive with the original 4.3 had a kernel panic, because of the "usbcore" module.

I Woofed a 4.3 with all the defaults (just ran the scripts: no changes in *SPECS*), and now it boots from the flash drive, and the problem with the HD boot persists. However, there are some errors ... (var/log/messages):

Just a thought, check that your 430 file is labeled pup-430.sfs, and not pup_430.sfs

I did my usual frugal install (Isobuster to extract the relevant files from the iso, no need to boot from a CD) but it wouldn't boot, saying pup-430.sfs not found.

I thought perhaps it was the upper case/lower case issue, but no.

I changed the file name from pup_430.sfs to pup-430.sfs, and it worked, so it seems to be a typo bug in the frugal install.

Edit: just seen someone with same suggestion - must type quicker!

which 430 are you talking about?
in the iso itself, is it pup_430.sfs or pup-430.sfs?

in 430 small.iso it is correct at pup-430.sfs,.

Correct iteration is pup-430.sfs throughout. Note: Dougal remaster script (Pupremaster), which is NOT included in 4.3, also creates a wrongly named sfs.
