Subject description: 475 is last "good" version for dillo2.2
 

So far I have this submitted anonymously:


http://sourceforge.net/support/tracker.php?aid=2993347

I'll look into the site some more to see if there is anything better. He has #jwm on freenode too but nobody there but me Cool


update
I narrowed it down to 475 as being the last version that lets dillo2.2 appear on screen. Am running a version of 475 now (built in ubuntu) with all options enabled except debug, 119k when stripped. No black icon background problem but some icons on main menu seem a little screwy. The desktop icon switcher kind of b0rqs with 475 - needed reboot to change.
I see that alot of other bugs were fixed between 475 and 490.

I don't know what change caused the problem: 475<>476

---------------------------------------------------------
Other than that, with jwm, geany always opens in windowed mode and too wide for the screen. Very similar to the way nicoedit 2.4 was in the past.
With openbox, it is fine.

Overall, wary is great on this 10-11 year old machine. Smile

Subject description: JWM492 kills another bug
 

http://joewing.net/websvn/comp.php?repname=JWM&path=%2F&compare[]=%2F@491&compare[]=%2F@492

from changlog:
492 21h 44m joewing /src/hint.c Don't make windows forever invisible if they are mapped in the Withdrawn state.

JWM 492 cures the problem of dillo-2.2 not appearing on screen. Cool

Subject description: report
 

I've test yudit on several puppies including quirky1
and never had any problem except for Lucid Puppy(lupu)
The error at the terminal was something like 'locale support
needed'

Yeah, if it works with quirky 1.0, and jwm as window manager (jwm 490, I think) it's probably ok as far as jwm is concerned.

For dillo2.2, the problem was only with jwm 476 through 491. But the symptoms were very similar with the app starting and running, not appearing, then appearing for a flash when exiting from session.

Of course, with openbox, I never had any problems at all.

Subject description: fix for geany too wide
 

EDIT: This probably won't be necessary, there is a config option in geany I overlooked, but this method could be used elsewhere.

If anyone is switching to jwm:
I added this to /root/.jwm/jwmrc-personal and it works.

Code:
<Group>
  <Class>Geany</Class>
   <Option>maximized</Option>
</Group>


This will cure the problem of geany always opening too wide for screen and in windowed mode.

Subject description: another rollback? w022?
 

More about xf86-video-intel on Barry's blog (although it may be for a rollback/over/Confused of a Quirky line that's already in release rather than Wary which isn't quite yet..) Confused

w020's my preferred 'waystation' since it's a multisession liveCD (and if I tell it to not save, there's no doubt it won't).

Btw, just for a lark tried latest xf86-video-ati-6.13.0-q1.pet in w020 .. it failed (different Xorg is my guess as well as w020 only accepts 'vesa' as the driver for me). excerpt from /tmp/xorgprobe.txt follows
dlopen: libdrm_radeon.so.1: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
(EE) Failed to load /usr/X11R7/lib/xorg/modules/drivers//radeon_drv.so
(EE) Failed to load module "radeon" (loader failed, 7)
(EE) module ABI major version (6) doesn't match the server's version (2)
(EE) Failed to load module "ati" (module requirement mismatch, 0)

Tried Wary 020 on my 10 y.o. Toshiba laptop, P3, 800mhz, 256mb RAM+512mb Swap, SD Card acting as HDD, Trident CyberBlade graphics card.

Live CD and Frugal Install worked perfectly. Full Install tricky but that's not a Wary issue. No Puppy wants to Full Install to an SD Card acting as HDD. But worth the effort. Runs well. Everything works. Very fast and easy setup of USB Wireless Internet dongle, ditto installing Wine 1.1.43 Just one query - when I open a Terminal window I get this message at the top:
bash: [: -ge: unary operator expected

Subject description: from initial article..
 

..in this thread (caught me too, but the fix is dead easy).

Quote:
Error message in terminal
Yes, there is an error message when a terminal is opened. This came about when I fixed a bug in Lupu.

Edit /etc/profile, these lines:

#100208 rox-filer needs this for GTK >= 2.18, fixes focus problem... 100423 fix...
if [ `grep -E '^gtk\+-2|^libgtk2.0' /root/.packages/woof-installed-packages | head -n 1 | cut -f 3 -d '|' | cut -f 2 -d '.'` -ge 18 ];then
export GDK_NATIVE_WINDOWS=true
fi

...the "\" backslash is required, also the "^".

I'll build a release-candidate soon.

There's a lot of interest in Wary. Probably Wary should have its own logo-icon, plus a new desktop background image...

Wary 020 does not have a Grub Installer. Only a Grub4DOS installer?

And Abiword doesn't have a Thesaurus ?

It's back to Puppy 421 Retro for me . . .

Hi Barry, a bit belated but i decided to download 020 instead of waiting for the next release and it loaded Xorg on this laptop ok, your releases of Quirky will not get pass probe.
I am running it from a cd with a save file on disc, there was no problem with booting and video probe was flawless for Xorg, i have not tried vesa yet.
The network setup was straight forward using your sns on my open wireless network and a Belkin usb network adapter.
I have applied the fixes posted earlier in this thread and the only problem at the moment is the touch pad is still to sensitive. I have reduced the sensitivity slightly by editing xorg.conf but i feel i need to do more.
Awaiting your next release of Wary.
