Subject description: All 64bit
 

EDIT: This thread is closed.

The final version of 700 has been released, see announcement here: http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=829938#829938.

===================================

Kirk and jamesbond are pleased to announce the release of release of Fatdog64-700rc ("release candidate").

For old-timers/testers: we hope that this will be the last release before final, which will be coming in a week's time unless there is major problem. So please test away and report back any findings, thanks.

For new-comers: Fatdog64-700 is a new major release of Fatdog64. Fatdog64 is now built from LFS and BLFS base. All base packages have been updated. You can find release announcements for beta2, beta1 and alpha1.

Changes from beta2:

Updates:
* Kernel 3.18.6 supporting LZO
* Seamonkey 2.32
* Flash plugin 11.2.202.442
* xorg-server-1.16.3
* xf86-input-evdev-2.9.1
* xf86-input-synaptics-1.7.8
* xf86-video-intel-2.99.917
* Mesa 10.4.3
* gtk2: 2.24.25
* util-linux 2.25.2 (fixes dm devices mounting)
* openssl-1.0.1l
* FAQs updated.

New Features:
* Major i18n support from L18L. Even more is available at L18L-goodies package
* Firefox is not included, but will be downloaded upon first access.
* Google-chrome is not included, but will be downloaded upon first access.
* Firefox/flashplayer/google-chrome updaters
* Volume labels on drive icons
* fatdog-clean-whiteout.sh script to clean aufs whiteouts.
* squashfs-tool supporting LZO

and numerous bug fixes (reported by SFR and others) and fine tunings.

While this doesn't look much, actually there are over 200 commits between beta2 and rc (some of which goes to the repo, so make sure you check the repo too!).

Thanks especially to L18L for his non-stop effort to internationalise Fatdog (some of which are already in this release), and SFR for pointing out long-standing bugs, and also to our other testers and users for your feedback, support and suggestions.

Get it from the usual location:

Firefox notes:
----
This release comes without Firefox, for two reasons:
1) Seamonkey and Firefox are at different internal revision (SM uses Gecko 35.0 and Firefox uses 35.0.1), so they cannot be merged.
2) 64-bit Firefox 35.0.1 has a problem with DNS resolution, as jamesbond pointed out in here.

You can still download Firefox 35.0.1 from the repo, or use the Firefox updater (in the Control Panel/Updates tab) to get the official Mozilla binary instead.

Mirrors take time to sync. You can get it from ibiblio. Or, short a limited period only Very Happy you can get "rc" from nluug from this: http://ftp.nluug.nl/ibiblio/distributions/fatdog/broken/rc/. Hurry up, that link will expire soon.

EDIT: In general, the "broken" directory does contain broken and various testing stuff, so don't look there unless instructed.

Just when I choose to stay at the Ranch..... Surprised rc released EARLY!!

but since my cellphone has free tether now, got it anyway, nice and crisp AMD is running really hot, need to get something for that. Load is somewhat higher at idle like use near 30-40 percent with just browser.

Thanks for the new FD700rc. The only small issue I've seen is that my desktop drive icons have no labels.
jamesbond, thanks for your patient answers to my recent questions. Regarding devsave-devbase, when I switched back to humongous initrd, I had to fix some links I had made to files in /aufs/devbase Embarassed

@Ted Dog, the 3.18.x kernel does seem to run a teeny bit hotter than previously. I don't know why.
As for hardinfo not showing temp, yeah I wonder why. Perhaps 3.18 change the location of the temperature sysfs. I will have to look and update hardinfo. For the time being you can run "sensors" in terminal to see some temperatures.

You are welcome!

Goto Fatdog event manager, change the "drive icon max volabel lenght" to anything other than zero. In my destkop six (6) is about the max I can have before it starts to overlap each other, if you want to show more than 6 then you'll have to start tweaking the icon grids ...[/quote]

@Ted Dog: run this in terminal "radeon-dpm-control.sh low" and see if that helps. This was the default in earlier beta and late 630s, but I disabled it a while ago.

Thanks, James. I was about to edit my post. The missing drive icon labels were my fault: At one time I had altered fatdog-drive-icon-roxlib.sh and it was still in my save folder. When I removed it, problem solved. (The labels were ok in b2.)

looks like flashplayer is the CPU hog trading places with X when viewing this site and double listing with spot/root seamonkey looks odd.

Not tried it yet but thanks for adding the updates for web browsers and flash.

This will solve browsing security and exploits.
