Yeah, and FoxTab (better IMO),, and you have your home brew one for seamonkey.. but the cool thing is that you can link an image for the piccy instead of the mini screeny..

Oh and seamonkey 2.8 is released, I'll wait a day or 2 as lately they have released point bugfixes hot on the heels..

Started system to FirstRUN, fine. Every application I have used, fine too. Packages I've installed...FINE!

Only issue is PPM and locating some products.(I am attacting a screen of my SLACKO software installed manually.)

This is a very, very clean and fast system on a 1GB RAM 32bit 1.5GHz Mobile Laptop.. Currently, LIve media with save-sessions thus far without issues.

You are on the right track. Already there is a Slacko puplet version out that uses the so called 32/64 bit super kernel.

64 bit is still the wave of the future.



Need to keep the regular 32 bit since there is lots of 32 bit hardware out there.....the majority of my hardware won't run 64 bit either. But,64 bit is the other direction to go in.

01Micko,

Installed Slacko 5.3.2.7 on SD card for my eeePC 1001HA, and I am impressed. Everything I tested works out of the box. Even Frisbee reconnect wireless after eth0 switch and back via function key F2, something I could not get with the Jemimah's puppeee 4.4RC2.

I replaced puppeee on my eeePC with Slacko now..
Only installed Chromium 18 since Seamonkey died when running the html5 test at Peacekeeper.com.

Congratulations !! This is a good puppy !

edit: one small problem after playing few hours and rebooting few times: sometimes grub4dos does not see the frugal install on the SDcard. Must be a timing issue. It gives "file not found" at the "find --set root ........sfs" line. Must be that the card filesystem is not read by the bios or by grub4dos at the moment the "find" is executed. Played with timing a bit, but that does not resolve the issue. This may be a known issue, but I fear I am unique in that I have grub4dos installed in a harddisk system and try to boot from an SD card through grub4dos's menu.lst.

01micko

This is very, very good - give that man a PHD. Smile

Fresh manual frugal install to fat32 USB2 flash stick. Syslinux 4.04 boot ext4 save-file.
Initial boot to desktop with working sound , wired Ethernet & nouveau driver @ 1280 x 1024 with no right or left shift.
Pets as shown in screen-shots were installed. The combination of nouveau & mesa seems to obviate the need to compile the proprietary Nvidia driver. Chromium, to my surprise installed only requiring some MS fonts for optimum visuals.
Fontwizard also installed and I was able to run it from the console.
The real wins here are:
1. The ability to save as ext4 which is much faster than ext2/ext3. (save interval set to zero)
2. The option not to save when shutting down. This should be de facto for all puppies particularly in the absence of recursive dependency checking.

Thanks must also go to shinobar & radky for their major contributions.

5.3.2.7

Final test on an old T22 IBM Thinkpad (Noteboo0k) running 512MB RAM, 15-inch screen.

Everything loaded fine, screen resolution, eth0 (Internet - with Seamonkey browser 2-7-2 and pretty fast for an old box), sound... all found automatically!

Running just great, posting from it now.

Everything including all programs tested appear to be working just super.

Looks like this Slacko 5,3,2,7 is a very nice program for older computers.

Again... nice work mic!

Mick,
let me join the chorus. 5.3.2.7 is really good
I was impressed with the smooth video playback on the XO-1. Best I've ever seen on this machine even at full screen.

Even updated an old savefile from 5.3.2.3 without issues.
Though, I'm not sure if it is intentional, it went through the update without asking at boot time and still welcomed me for "first time running puppy" (but not with the pupmode5 screen).
Is obviously not a problem, just a bit strange. Maybe is the "XOfication"... Very Happy

Is a good one anyway. Wait few days to see, and call it 5.3.3!

Personalize Settings in 5.3.2.7 gave the video as vesa again, instead of what it actually was (radeon).

playdatz

Yes, I saw the 'vesa' report on my radeon lappy too in firstrun, I'll consult with shinobar on that one.

Try "report-video", even with the shortened xorg,conf it should report correctly in over 99% of cases.

-

OK, everyone.. there are 2 other known bugs I want fixed.

1. The program insertion to tray in JWM.

Some users report that it baulks the entire tray, this is an old bug first reported by mikeslr but I have seen other reports on the forum in various puppies.

Possible solution: Use a "while read LINE; do" loop instead of sed.

2. 1 finger tapping with synaptics touchpad

This works in Lupu so there's a clue, however 2 finger scrolling in Lupu fails for me whereas it works in Slacko.

Possible solution: Do a diff from Lupu xorg.conf to Slacko and add the missing entry to xorgwizard and xorgwizard-automatic.

-

Other things to do are add icewm to the repo, fix a couple of small bugs with compiz, compile new seamonkey and firefox, update the chromium package. Also need a virtual box package for the repo, I may ask TheAsterisk!*.


playdayz.. are you using Iguleder's patch library for chrome based browsers for the root bug? I did with Iron but not for Google-Chrome. However both seem stable for me.
