Subject description: The last beta?
 

See announcement:

http://bkhome.org/blog/?viewDetailed=01940

It is on the ibiblio.org host, has not yet filtered through to the mirrors.

Lots of improvements since 094, both to Woof and Wary. Testers welcome!

I am connected with my dialup modem, Pctel, right now. I found that it (the modem) was broken when I upgraded the save-file from 094, so booted with "pfix=ram". Now I am in business.

Better upgrading of the save-file is something that is on the to-do list, don't know when though.

Love having the extra drivers in a separate file that can be removed if they are no needed. All good so far.
Short Question for Barry: You posted configuration for compiling Seamonkey in Wary thanks. Would the same configuration be used for compiling Seamonkey 2.1b?

This has been mentioned before and is not a specific Wary problem (maybe woof?). Menu>desktop>jwm configuration>apply current GTK theme to JWM actually deletes the contents of /root/jwmrc-tray leaving no tray at the bottom of the screen.

Subject description: ati
 

I installed 096 to a 4gb flash drive.
I installed the ati_fglrx-10.10-k2.6.31.14-w5.pet using the extra step
and hardware acceleration is working.
I compiled some apps and then rebooted and it took much less time than
usual to save the save file to the flash drive than it usually does
after making that many changes.
The retrovol icon is x'ed out but sound it working fine, this only
happens on this pc for some reason.I use the dial on the remote to
change sound level.
I compiled icewm-1.3.7 and switched to that.
096 is running nice so far Smile

report-video
VIDEO REPORT: Wary Puppy, version 096
Chip description:

product: Intel(R)Ironlake Mobile Graphics Controller Hardware Version 0.0
Driver used by Xorg:
intel
Video mode used by Xorg:

intel driver works. In menu it is jerky (flickering) but submenus ok.

ayttm crashes in hyperlinks as it should crash Smile Pidgin 2.6.5 pet works, it does not want missing dbus.

Flsynclient ok. Network with ath9k ok.

/opt/mozilla.org/bin/firefox symlink to /usr/bin needed in wary 096 to get firefox working in menu. If you install firefox from wary repo

I compiled pidgin without Dbus, I figured just a basic version with spellcheck should be good for most users Smile

Subject description: PPM trim the fat, unsetting FLAGPET for *_NLS.pet
 

installed gtkam_NLS-0.1.17-w5
no 'trim the fat', so all language files installed. Sad
Then, having changed
/usr/local/petget/downloadpkgs.sh 153
Code:
  ONEFILE="`echo -n "$ONEFILE" | cut -f 1,2 -d '|' | tr '|' '/'`" #100527 path/fullfilename
  [ "`echo -n "$ONEFILE" | rev | cut -c 1-3 | rev`" = "pet" ] && FLAGPET='yes' #101016
  #if [ "$RADIO_URL_LOCAL" = "true" ];then

to (1 line inserted)
Code:
  ONEFILE="`echo -n "$ONEFILE" | cut -f 1,2 -d '|' | tr '|' '/'`" #100527 path/fullfilename
  [ "`echo -n "$ONEFILE" | rev | cut -c 1-3 | rev`" = "pet" ] && FLAGPET='yes' #101016
  [ "`echo $ONEFILE | grep _NLS`" != ""  ] && FLAGPET=''
  #if [ "$RADIO_URL_LOCAL" = "true" ];then

now enables 'trim the fat ' for *_NLS.pet and only wanted languages were installed. Smile
I had no idea what FLAGPET should be good for but am sure NLS needs 'trim the fat' for average user.

Applied just for interest : on dpup-009 it applies something that I hadn't had time to change but the taskbar is still there.
Also changing the JWM theme at the `jwmconfig` MenuPoint 'Choose a JWM theme' doesn't delete the .jwm-tray here:
# jwm --help
JWM vsvn-492 by Joe Wingbermuehle
compiled options: icons png shape xft xinerama xpm xrender
system configuration: /etc/system.jwmrc
usage: jwm [ options ]
Quote:
system configuration: /etc/system.jwmrc

I guess there is always no time to compile with adjusted pathes inside the .c files.

You have to select 'or apply current GTK theme to JWM'
Selecting to 'Choose a JWM theme' is fine.

There is a bunch of other stuff I put up there too. OpenOffice/LibreOffice and an sfs for seamonkey 2.1b if I remember correctly.

'Woof woof' seems to be disabled?
The Universal installer doesn't appear to work (for internal IDE); it shows all partitions as /sdaGUID ?? Is this a local issue? an HW problem? with this disc?
Good to see autoDHCP connects!

Update: As you were - did a low level disc clean and that has fixed it. This used to be a problem more frequently with older discs but haven't seen it much recently.
