The wired network,sound,and screen resolution all good on first boot.
I did a frugal install of 516 and used grub4dos.

I got the devx the new way and already had the kernel sources sfs on
the hard disk along with the newest nvidia driver for my card.
I installed the nvidia driver.

I think it's good that the files that are needed to install the latest nvidia
or ati drivers are easily available to the user if they want to use them.

I changed my desktop a bit Smile

Looks like a nice wide button labeled GCC on your copy.

Reboot ... pupsave (ext3) same thing. So I used Psinc Time.
sound is good (tray-icon of volume: OK )

Yes, I know, because it was there in 5.15. The funny thing is I sent a screenprint of it, to someone who was missing it in 5.15 Shocked Laughing

Lobster proofing Bert Wink

Install Puppy any way you like and you will get the button, it won't show when running pfix=ram (PUPMODE=5 Wink )

It will disappear once you have installed the devx too,,

Cheers

Hi yarddog,

Thanks for your report.

Installing PupClockset-1.2 (in Lupu-516 Beta 2) works well in my system, and I can't seem to duplicate the problem you now have. When you have time, could you do a fresh boot of the Lupu iso, then install PupClockset-1.2.

At this point, please run fbpanel refresh as the first step. Then launch PupClockset and change the clock format. If the fbpanel clock disappears, open /root/.config/fbpanel/default in geany. Please let me know if the file is empty.

Thanks

Successful frugal upgrade of a lupu-510 installation on an old Sony laptop with only 64MB ram. Everything appears to work, however slow. Of course it is faster than the original Windows XP.

Kudos and Merry Christmas,
Jim

Because of firewallstate we know if the firewall is on, but is it working?

I have used the Gibson Research Company Shield's Up over the years.

I got a perfect Stealth score but my router is blocking everything so I couldn't say that it would be representative. I would be curious to know though.

followed steps above and it works
why is it necessary to run fbpanel refresh before making changes to clock format?

user needs to be aware of this additional step to make it work
I did not have problem with 1.2 in luci-246 - for me it first appeared in lupu 515

regards
yarddog

Sound, video, wifi all worked out of the box.

In PMirrorget I did notice the help close button is not working.

For some reason gnome-mplayer seems to be working better now. It used to be very jerky with my home movies, that was one of the reasons I preferred vlc. I'm sitll using the stock standard video driver too.

Can mplayer record video like vlc?

Are Midori and Dillo both required?

Whichever you prefer, of course Wink
Quickpet will now show you if more than one version is available. PPM has *all* the pets, but Quickpet has the one-click SFS's. ...
Reading this verbadim could mean that PPM only provides PETs for incorporation in the local OS while quickPet provides both PETs and SFSs.installation to the local OS
True? or not-true?

Thanks in advance
