Wireless fixed via wpa_supplicant 2.3

Could you provide some details on this? What specific wifi problem was solved with this upgrade?

After upgrade to openssl 1.x (and removing older 0.9x libs) some apps needed a recompile because they had segmentation faults or wouldn't start, so I compiled latest wpa supplicant because wifi wasn't working at all after upgrade 2 delta is applied.

Pretty cool, it works with a lot of Lucid and Exprimo programs, not the video editors though.

One thing that doesn't work is that it gives errors if I want to make the JWM taskbar bigger.

Yeah, it needs update of jwm gui setup tool, you could modify it by editing jwm config file directly. I'll see what I can do about that.

Here's to you! Very Happy



Just a thought:
How possible would it be to modernize the kernel, I mean have a newer one
without creating chaos, without changing everything else?

Also another weird thing is that if I change the icon theme it only changes about 3 icons. I tried restarting the X sever, and also installed some other themes, but it kept behaving like this.

O.k., that's another visual thing, functionally seems like a good puppy.

I don't remember that being an issue.

musher0, not sure about kernel also I never really compiled one, and any newer doesn't really work for my PC so I wouldn't be able to test it properly, that's why there are other puppies for newer stuff.

Is it really a so nice Puppy ? No You Tube demo ?
Downloading (slow).
Newer is not better, for music or Puppies. Just nowadays, things are electrified. But people are so in a hurry that Puppies are quite without flavour...
Smile 247MB downloaded on my old computer. In fact it was fast.
Installed near by kitchenpup by my Puppy assistant
Hard to read on my laptop because of reflecting lights a lot, and i have changed colors of theme due that.

Hi, Mayou.

Well, at least I like it. Because
    1) dejan always does good work.

    2) for sentimental reasons: dpup 487 is the latest offshoot of the original
    dpup 482 from +/- 2010, built by gposil from Debian Lenny applications.
    dpup 482 was IMO the first of the new line of Puppies like we have today.
    Also, it was my first collaboration to a Puppy. (I should light a candle,
    eh?!)

    3) it's perfectly suited to older computers.

BFN.

Dpup487 installed ASPIRE 3000 (second hand) at first try, without help of my son. My english is not rich, so i hardly understand the english speech.

Thank you, Dejan.
Downloading now.
Just an idea for later versions: Newer kernel above 3.x (maybe even above 2.8 ) and squashfs-tools-v.4 will give you the option to use xz compression. For the price of little more CPU usage Dpup can be compressed 25-30% smaller.
Toni

If Pierre gets a smaller sized ISO by XZ, then Paul will complain about slowness of install Question

Kernel 3.0.25 fits very well wit KDEPUP484, it should fit to Dpup487...
Frenchies do not practice a lot switching the kernels. I believe i am the only one. Canadian perhaps could help (from Quebec Smile)

Dpup487 refused to run in my computer. When i succeed reaching desktop, my first pupsave never finish. So I switch off computer, and trash Dpup487, I previously run Dpup487 virtual machine, and made videos of it. But the public did not show some interest in them too.
I can try to change the kernel of Dpup487, if you need. But the best should be you read the topic. It's easy to do, just obey what is said.
