Results of testing:

Broadcom wl.ko wifi driver - works

Chromium 28 - works after 1 simple link is created

LxPup by SFS - works apart from automatically detecting new devices - can be got around by using pmount

Cheers

Tried Raring Puppy Alpha2 on my desktop with nvidia graphics.

Got none of the problems reported above on my laptop.....

however after the first reboot after savefile creation I was presented with a black screen and an apparently DOA pc - but in fact after experimentally pressing ctrl-alt-backspace I was returned to the console and could then run xorgwizard - selected nouveau (my screen dimensions were not displayed as an option) so chose the "let xorg decide" option - and this then chose a driver which worked as well as any other nouveau with this setup (i.e the screen is always displaced a little to the right losing part of the clock).

Regards
peebee

5694 on XP3000/1G: Serious problems booting from liveCD, worst ever experience, with spurious messages never seen before - checked d/l and burned twice - they were OK. Finally, it decided to start; fairly slow.
Dislike the font/pt. size/background and icon set. Didn't like the menus, which get increasingly convoluted to navigate. Poor browser choice remains endemic in the breed! These are personal views, though.
On the positive side, things work ootb, connection, sound, video(Radeon) and Flash.
This one is a far cry from the simplicity of the early Puppies; gives the feeling of being overly and unnecessarily complex. I won't be using this one. No-one can doubt the skill and expertise of our Dear Leader, but like other mere mortals, maybe sometimes sight of the wood can get lost for the trees?

Subject description: Seamonkey does not accept the language setup
 

Booting from live CD into my pupsave file on hard disk.

Can anybody explain why Seamonkey doesn't accept my language setup.

Quote:
Ah, it only happens while you start Seamonkey for the first time - as first X-application. (But on every boot!)

If you close Seamonkey and start it new then everything works well.


If you start Leafpad as first X-app and urxvt as second X-app you'll face the same problem.

Quote:
Same problem with test box#2. Booting with this one from live CD into pupsave file on a usb stick.


HardInfo does not list the usb keyboard regardless to the point of connection (Motherboard or usb hub) . HardInfo file included.

Fresh frugal install of 5694 A2 on my old Dell Dimension 8200 having P4
2.0 ghz cpu and 768 meg RAM, No problems noted.

I hope the final release includes a far more up to date mplayer such as
1.0.8

Installed Firefox 22.0 and as usual it is quicker than SM.

Have any other testers installed XBMC or VLC from puppy package manager successfully?
Installing them from ppm causes problems on every pc that I've tested the raring alphas on.

Hi BarryK,

I was able to choose my desired screen size of 1024 x 768 pixels, but, as for peebee, my clock view was truncated and the vertical scroll bar did not appear using SeaMonkey.

My regards

Are you downloading from one of the Ubuntu repositories?
If yes, are you doing the check for dependencies and downloading them?
Seems to need a lot of dependencies along with the VLC package.

Yes I download from the Ubuntu repositories, XBMC and VLC download and install fine, the trouble begins after rebooting the system, sound and the network connection are broken.
I have downloaded both in Precise 5.6.1 with no problems, although the versions of XBMC and VLC are older in Precise 5.6.1 they work fine.

It might be uninterested, but the alternative gtkdialog-splash and Pmount has been well tested, and been default in the recents Slackos.

Subject description: Hanging problem
 

My system is freezing immediately after booting. I have also same problem in 5.6 precise puppy. However, some how, I have managed the same after booting several times. Even though the same is hanging after sometimes. May be due to xorg,xwin problem?

Also, just was given an 5 year old eeePC and this boots and runs, too.

Will provide eeePC specs in a subsequent post to this thread.


Good news will try it on that some time.
Went straight to desktop on my 'old 64 bit AMD'. It did not connect to ethernet automatically. I thought Puppy did this now. Easy enough to set up, so was soon up and internetified . . .

It was the 'almost Beta' status (and it is) that caught my eye. What I really wanted to do was use Google+
Well just on the off chance, rather than using Chrome I stuck with Seamonkey and rather than using the Flash downloader (which I saw later) I just downloaded the missing DEB directly from Seamonkey.
I was not even aware that Raring was Ubuntu compatible (some Puppys are happy with debs) . . .
Anyway the Deb installed and flash worked Cool

The kernel on boot up from CD had recognized the Philips webcam. Sweet.

Not sure if the webcam has a mic. I think it does but that did not seem to autowork and I got fed up fiddling with audio settings.
So Google+ was working OK in hangouts but no sound . . . which is what I require for an online Zendo at treeleaf

but I also want that mic working now . . .

Great job guys. Many thanks. Still using a tablet most of the time Embarassed

What is interesting is how many facilities may be missing for the convenience factor of IOS . . . but that is another story . . .

First off, this Raring IS fast.
Of all the recent pups it seems to be the fastest one. It's not only Seamonkey, Firefox too runs faster in this build. I applied Barry's "omni.ja decompression" trick to FF, but it's hard to see a noticeable difference when the system itself is fast. Click on a directory and it will shoot up with no hesitation, except perhaps some really heavy ones, like usr/bin or such. But even the heavy ones open much faster in this build. However, it runs a bit too warm to my liking. Not the most cold blooded beast to run on an eeepc, I should say. And here's a really surprising annoyance: adding an additional keyboard layout has never been a problem. An entry like this one in 'xorg.conf'.
Code:
Section "InputDevice"
   Identifier  "Keyboard0"
   Driver      "kbd"
   Option      "XkbRules" "xorg"
   Option      "XkbModel" "pc102"
   Option      "XkbLayout" "us,ru"
   Option      "XkbOptions"  "grp:ctrl_shift_toggle,grp_led:scroll,compose:rwin"
   Option      "XkbVariant" ",winkeys"
EndSection
and this rule in '90-keyboard-layout.conf'
Code:
Section "InputClass"
   Identifier "keyboard-all"
   MatchIsKeyboard "on"
   MatchDevicePath "/dev/input/event*"
   Driver "evdev"
   Option "XkbModel" "pc102"
   Option "XkbLayout" "us,ru"
   Option "XkbOptions"  "grp:ctrl_shift_toggle,grp_led:scroll,compose:rwin"
   Option      "XkbVariant" ",winkeys"
   Option "XkbOptions" "terminate:ctrl_alt_bksp"
EndSection
Not so anymore. Toggling ctrl+shift will not change the layout unless you first run something/anything in a terminal!

And the biggest annoyance is that I can't save a file to (or open one from) a mounted partition. Mounted partitions are not available! See picture below.
