Puppy 4.2.1 released!

May 22, 2009 — BarryK
WhoDo has announced the release of Puppy Linux 4.2.1. This is a bugfix release of 4.2. See the announcement here:

A lot of testing went into 4.2.1 and WhoDo has put in a huge effort. He probably still vaguely recalls that he had a real life once! Warren, take a well-deserved rest.

The "Package Coordinator" job should be much less demanding, no stress to meet deadlines, etc. I'll send you a p.m. with a few details.


Bravo 4.2.1!

4.2.,1 network problems

"Hi Barry Been awhile since 4.2.1 was released I know, but in the forum, quite a lot of posters/noobies especially, seem to have problems connecting to the internet I don't know if this is a driver/network wizard problem or if there's something still needed, as a patch, [including in 4.3,maybe?] as several ISPs don't seem to get their DNS resolving sorted - using 4.2.2 or open dns seems to work see and and seems to be something associated with /etc/resolv.conf maybe? Perhaps adding local DNS caching would help...? thanks Aitch
