Hi pemasu,

No problems with devx & sfs-load in this 3.8.4.2 build. In the previous one sfs-load/unload worked for me, but compile itself (as discovered later) actually threw up errors. Now everything just works. Did a quick test compile of jwm-716. I went a bit further with mouse pointers, like this:
Code:
   case BA_CLOSE:
      return cursors[CURSOR_DEFAULT];
   case BA_MAXIMIZE:
      return cursors[CURSOR_DEFAULT];
   case BA_MINIMIZE:
      return cursors[CURSOR_DEFAULT];


I'd like to compile my own ROX. How do I chose the right version in Barry's sources? I got completely lost there.

Thank you for your hard work and dedication to the community.

Anikin. Heh. I thought about that also, but I wasnt at last that heretical.

About Rox-Filer source.
rox-filer-2011-10-22-patched2 or rox-filer-2011-10-22-patched should the right one in Barrys alphabetical repository. I would take that rox-filer-2011-10-22-patched2.
If I have understood right, it is Puppy patched source.

I havent compiled Rox-Filer for a long time.

Thank you, I'll try that one.

I'm having a big issue here: urxvt. In my learning process I absolutely need to be able to have a terminal output. I can put text in (shift+insert), but I can't get text out. Google says, use mouse middle button. But I'm using a touchpad, is there a solution?

Anikin. Select the text for pasting with left click and drag along the text ie painting, then paste the text with simultaneous left and right click with your touchpad where ever you want. A little tricky but works.

Or...install lxterminal with dependencies from PPM, rename /usr/bin/urxvt to something else, then symlink: ln -s /usr/bin/lxterminal /usr/bin/urxvt

and change in Rox-Filer options the xterm to lxterminal. You get copy - paste also that way by using lxterminal

Upup Raring 3.8.4.2 has been uploaded. Same non-PAE 3.8.4 kernel.

Cups is now Ubuntu Raring 1.6.2 version with Ubuntu Ghostscript. It has swelled the build size. Oh yeah. It prints.
Test the printing with various needs and report if some ways to print does not work.


Not only does it print but it also auto-detects my HP laserjet Pro 1102w wireless printer! Thanks so much!

Because of my earlier troubles with any 3.8.x kernels and my newer Nvidia chips I hesitated trying Raring...... but it appears to be working this time. Smile Precise and PHATSlacko with 3.8.x kernels froze up every attempt but this build is working.

Hello Pemasu

3.8.4.2 is working well.

I installed the VLC 2.1 daily build from the videolan master-daily PPA on launchpad, and it worked at the first attempt!

Now I wonder what new features VLC 2.1 has...

Thank you for this.

There have been reports of freezing of certain comps with 3.8.X kernels in Upup Raring and also in PHATSlacko threads using 3.8.X kernels.

I have got a report that unsquashing main sfs and replacing jwm with Openbox has been a cure for at least one comp.

It is possible that the main nominator is 3.8.X kernel. Possibly it is not prime yet.

I would like to compile later 3.8.X version and try the impact. But not the next version yet. Anyway...3.7.X kernel has been stable in Upup Precise. One possibility is to downgrade the kernel in the build.

This bug seems to concern only certain comps. Newer Nvidia and some integrated newer intel graphics....at least.

Those bug reports have been noticed. The counter-strike is still under consideration....

Hi,

As Python is included, can someone test if Gpodder can be installed, from Gpodder's PPA?

Thanks in advance.

Gpodder python app. Dunno about PPA, but from PPM it works when downloaded with dependencies....and again creating couple of symlinks:

ln -s /usr/share/pyshared/mygpoclient /usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages
ln -s /usr/lib/pymodules/python2.7/gpodder /usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages

pemasu,

I know u're like "the kernel guy" in puppy land. You've helped me out with a kernel before in the past also a cpl years ago. Was wondering though, if you had compiled, or know of a 3.0 non-pae kernel?
