Subject description: This is really the last beta (or maybe an RC)
 

The most important thing to test in this release is the major overhaul of analog and digital modem handling, using my 'zzz' package.

Blog announcement:
http://bkhome.org/blog/?viewDetailed=02027

I have great results with my Vodafone and Telstra 3G modems, and keen to get feedback from any of you guys who also have 3G modems.

In way it is a bit weird that I am using Wary to test this 3G modem work, considering that Wary targets older hardware and has an older kernel (2.6.31.14).
Yeah, but why shouldn't you be able to plug a 3G modem into your old PC and have it work? I would like recent peripherals such as modems, cameras, scanners and printers to work on old computers, so it is not really in opposition to the Wary agenda.

Anyway, feedback welcome!

if that is possible to fix (replace it with earlier version?) there is an improved xgamma-gui

Update on sound problem: My usb install was an update of an existing save file. Just did a pfix=ram boot and I have perfect sound so the problem is with the save file. Looking forward to exploring wary another great OS-irishrm

@Barry
I hope you are aware that the 'pmedia=cd' does not search the main sfs from usb devices.
Therefore UNetBootin installation on usb devices fails.

Peasyscan 1.3.1 is installed, but doesn't show in the menus. If I change the category in the desktop file to X-GraphicUtility, it appears.

For some reason, if I install the original PET where the category is just Graphic, it also appears in the menu.

This bug has been reported before.

Suppose I have a frugal install of Wary in a hard drive partition. I then boot off the Live CD using "pfix=ram" because I want to run Gparted. Wary still searches for the sfs file on the hard drive and loads it instead of the copy on the CD. If I have enough memory to load the sfs, the hard drive partition is then unmounted and I can modify it with Gparted. However, on a low memory machine, the sfs file is left mounted and the partition is locked. So I can't change it.

[Edit] This problem is particularly significant in recent Quirkies, where the default boot option is "nocopy".

Subject description: 1st and 2nd bootups
 

I'm running 1.02 live.
On first boot sound and wired network are working.
I ran the Video Upgrade Wizard and it advised downloading the nvidia
driver, I did that and it's working:

# glxgears
42910 frames in 5.0 seconds = 8582.000 FPS
52259 frames in 5.0 seconds = 10451.800 FPS
52268 frames in 5.0 seconds = 10453.600 FPS
52274 frames in 5.0 seconds = 10454.800 FPS

# report-video
VIDEO REPORT: Wary Puppy, version 102

Chip description:
oem: NVIDIA
product: G84 Board - p402h00 Chip Rev

Driver used by Xorg:
nvidia

Video mode used by Xorg:
Resolution: Depth 24 Depth: "Display"

...the above also recorded in /tmp/report-video
#

Rebooting now to create save file.

After rebooting the wired network and sound are still working.

It's working good on this 3 year old Acer desktop so that's where I'll use it.

Thanks

When ROX-Filer click a media file that have space in file name, mplayer could not play the media file.
To fix it, need add two " to the line 20 of the /usr/bin/mplayershell, like this:
OLD:
Code:
if [ $1 ];then

NEW:
Code:
if [ "$1" ];then


Remark : The mplayershell is in the mplayer_gui-20100923-w5.pet


Best regards,

Subject description: re: 8139too, 8139cp and PREFLIST
 

I checked that the 8139cp:8139too already add in the PREFLIST of the /etc/rc.d/MODULESCONFIG, thank very much!
But the 8139too module still not loaded automatically, instead of this, the 8139cp module loaded. This was happen in first boot and the next boot(have a save file).
If I manual "rmmod 8139cp" and "modprobe 8139too", the network could connect OK.
Code:
#dmesg |grep 8139
8139cp: 10/100 PCI Ethernet driver v1.3 (Mar 22, 2004)
8139cp 0000:01:05.0: This (id 10ec:8139 rev 10) is not an 8139C+ compatible chip, use 8139too

# lspci -nn -m |grep 8139

# modprobe --show-depends pci:v000010ECd00008139sv*sd*bc*sc*i*

Otherwise appears to be working well.

Subject description: Mrxvt Terminal Emulator
 

I made a pet of mrxvt-054 terminal emulator, it has tabs and transparency and
other options available in the mrxvt menus.

The font size is also a little larger than rxvt.
It creates an entry of the Utility section of the puppy menu.

Tested in Wary 102

Went ahead and did a manual frugal install on the main box. Same network problem on initial boot but once configured everything has survived several reboots.
