OK, I am going to do deltas for the first time.

How do I do this?

Hi Oldyeller,

Finally a question I can answer….

Make sure you run any recent puppy (i.e. Slacko 5.6)
Put the iso and the delta file in the same folder.
Make sure there is sufficient space in that folder.
Click on the delta file….confirm that you want to apply the delta to the iso…..wait…ready.

For the 5.6.5.2 you need to apply 2 delta's. So you temporary need space for 3 iso's: the org, the first update, the second update. After the process is done you can delete all except the final iso. Burn that to a USB or CD.

Good luck...

thanks Volhout,

That worked my first delta is running great.

Hi mick, I am running slacko 5.6.5.2 and so far everything is working great will continue to test for the next couple of days. Where can I get the devs?

EDIT: I did apply the two deltas in order and now the ppm don't work/nothing downloads, maybe something went wrong when doing the deltas.

Cheers

Try double-clicking the entries. It's a new 'feature'.

Frankly, I feel that change should be reverted on the grounds that it causes more confusion for little gain - and this is coming from someone who routinely turns off the single-click options in ROX.

TBH you should probably revert it to the single click behaviour. The only way I managed to figure out I needed to double-click was when my repeated "nothing is happening" clicking managed to coincide with the double-click delay by accident.

Jades, I'm inclined to agree with you. I know some of the esteemed senior members of our community dislike double click for various reasons; a notable one is Jim1911 (sorry can't find the post, iirc it was about FatDog package manager) and I'm sure Sage would have something to say too.

Beyond like-dislike is indeed a bit awkward everything to be single click and PPM double click. Double click in PPM has is advantages but may be better to follow a global setting, which would be a nice feature BTW Wink
Alternatively, a user-configurable option (with a small explanation) on first launch could be set.

Indeed! You have only to ask yourself, what moron introduced double clicking and why.
Let's make it rhetorical and give you some clues:

PPM double click to download.

Found one thing it allows.
You can scroll down package list, with arrow keys on keyboard, and start download by pressing enter key.

For when your left mouse button finger gets overworked. Rolling Eyes Shocked Cool

RE: PPM double-click

Vox populi, vox Dei. Cool

Ok, I can revert the single click, but the only way (for now, maybe me or someone else will find a better way later) to do it is to disable column resizing (as Mick did in SFS/Update managers), however I just checked and thankfully at least sorting can be retained safely, without the threat of this bug.
Is it ok that way?

Also, made a quick test a most likely choosing via keyboard also could be preserved!

Anyway, thanks for opinions about it, appreciated. Smile

Greetings!

I don't know if this would be a bug, But when playing gnome-player and hitting the tray button will hide the player and when hitting again it will not make it viewable at all. It starts to but closes right away so you can not view it.

Hope this makes since.

Cheers

Hi Oldyeller, the window closes or just minimizes?
In my case after pressing the tray icon, gnome-player's window returns (shows up on taskbar), but it's simply minimized.
It seems to be JWM related; under IceWM it behaves as expected...

Greetings!

@SFR,

I notice that it worked properly as well with fluxbox that I compiled. So it must be a jwm thing.

Cheers

Not a problem, while I personally didn't like the feature I can now see what you were trying to do. You did the right thing giving it a shot this early in the testing while there was time for people to give feedback. Perhaps you could make turning it on optional, like double-clicking is in ROX? IIRC there is an options screen in PPM already.
