Upgrade 3.8.4.2 to 3.8.7

Upgrade went well, usual default icons reappeared on desktop along with wbar setup I had in 3.8.4.2 and had to replace the background... no biggie.

Graphics are very nice and clean. Sound great, speed appears to be about the same as 3.8.4.2

Only fault so far... mplayer does NOT go fullscreen but rather displays two small windows with a different timing of the same video in each, like two-shows in one.

Still can't get ANY sfs Google Earth to work in Raring (previous version same problem) although the mapper prog in my Cloud.pet works very well.

Raring-3.8.4.2 was giving an occasional WiFi DROP, we'll see how 3.8.7 holds up? (Linksys AE1000 usb stick with Verizon Modem/Router DSL combo.)

More to test in next few days....

Firefox:
edit/preferences/content/advanced ... select your font size.
I installed ff from ppm and it works very well. Fonts look great everywhere, especially in ff. 96 dpi is OK for native screen resolution.

Hi!

I tried this "raring" puppy, but I wasn't impressed. Same old, same old.

I mean, it's well done, but it doesn't bring anything new. Same good points, same irritants, as any other "raw" Puppy.

The flexibility of the savefile is what keeps puppy popular, of course.
And the simplicity of running as "root". But...

No plugins for abiword, so only basic writing; you're out of luck if you need to import another format. No real reader : the "defaulttextviewer" is only a simpler text editor. Same wm, jwm, even "updated"; no attempt to harness the power of rox as environment manager. Same old, same old.

Sorry for being so frank. Going back to wheezypup.

BFN.

I have been watching how it goes with glib 2.36 bug. The bug affects so many distros and applications atm, that the fix should be sure. Also ubuntu firefox version has got official bug confirmed status today. So...It should now only be the matter of the time.

Jwm has been in so active development recently that I will use it surely. If there pops up jwm related bugs, they can be directed to the jwm development. I will compile the latest version when I create next build. It will have 3.8.10 kernel or 3.9 depending of aufs3.9 existence.

Barry Kauler has again improved new xorgwizard and I need to download new woof2 soon.

About abiword. I wont use my time to improve it. I dont use it. For me it is Libre Office sfs. Period. I just use brilliant get libre office pet and update my version at infrequent intervals. I include abiword so that people dont have to ask how to get in to the build. But if someone wants to improve its abilities with packages and extra features...go ahead. I am willing to include them.

The development benefits dpup wheezy also. The problems with soon released wheezy will be quite the same as with raring. The work with this build will grow fruit with dpup wheezy also.

A bit of good news, the recently released proprietary nvidia driver 173.14.37 has compiled successfully in Upup Raring 3.8.7 in my GeForce FX 5200 graphics card machine. The previous version 173.14.36 was no good on a number of recent kernels.

Glxgears is more like 1400 FPS as opposed to around 400 FPS with nouveau.

It was a bit fiddly, I needed to run fixmenus to get the GUI to appear in the menu and at one point it hung as a blackscreen and I had to reboot, but got there in the end and selected a resolution via the new xorgwizard.

I won't try to make a .pet of this because I think the next Upup Raring will have a different kernel, but at least nvidia are still supporting the older cards with newer kernels it seems.
