Puppy 4.1.1 release candidate

October 24, 2008 — BarryK
For anyone who would like to do a sanity check before the final release, here it is:

I expect to upload 4.1.1final about a week from now, most likely.

You can find out what is in 4.1.1 compared with 4.1 by looking at my recent blog posts with "(SP1)" in the title: Mouse detection fixes Pburn, Pmusic DidiWiki fixed BootManager add-modules bugfix Network Wizard fixes Mouse detect fix ROX error msg when copy file ALSA shutdown puppyinputdetect utility Check dependencies of installed PET pkgs Fix for drive icon renaming Improved mouse detection puppyserialdetect 1.1h Network Wizard update GPRS message correction Old Network Wizard can coexist with new Wizard Firmware loading for DVB USB Loading 3 extra SFS files Touchpad fix Mouse detection fix SP1 Ndiswrapper bugfix prism54 fix

I think that Dougal is working on further improvements to the Network Wizard, so we will need to carefully test his next release before bringing out 4.1.1final.

Looks to me like your building the proverbial brick *house upon which we can base 4.2, Barry! :) I'm all for anything that makes it easier for us to follow in your footsteps. Thanks, mate.

Just works

"I am using 4.1.1rc now. The biggest compliment is really that - just using it. No drama. The server for download is much faster - makes a huge difference. I have added Barry to the list of developers for 4.2 and I hope part of the retirement transition will include some involvement now and again. Warren is right 4.1.1 is the 'Alpha' base for 4.2. If we keep things simple we will have a natural and smooth evolution into 4.2

Removable drive's Icon is not removed

"Something I just noticed as I bought an external HDD. When I boot puppy after, the icon for the drive is still on the desktop. When I saw that I went to ~/.pup_event and I saw that I have two icons for USB memory, although only one is connected. The other seems to be a ghost from when I plugged it in a different USB port.

"rarsa, that report is much to vague. What directories are in /root/.pup_event, which one is the ghost, what does 'probedisk2' and 'probepart' report? Probably best to post to the forum thread.

USB SD Card Reader Problem

"Just tested my handy USB SD Card Reader with PL 4.1 (both versions). It doesn't recognized the card reader. I hope the fix can be included in 4.1.1. Regards.
