Modems broken in Quirky-Retro 1.1

May 28, 2010 — BarryK
Thanks to Raman who tested 15 win-modems. These all work in Puppy 4.3.1, but only 2 work in Quirky-Retro 1.1.

Rerwin, who is our main guy for analog and 3G modem support in Puppy, has helped out, and found the reason.

Forum thread:

I applied the fix in Quirky-Retro 1.2rc. The files are currently uploading, estimated completion time 16 hours from now, however for the impatient, Quirky-Retro 1.2rc has completed uploading, find it here:


Samba broken in q112
Username: puppymike
Just tried qrky-112. Unfortunately both the Samba connection front ends do not work for me. lameSMBExplorer has always been unreliable(in other Puppys)for me and the same now in qrky-12. pNethood works fine in 412 and 431. In qrky-112 it has the same problem as lupu-512 in that (after I had installed on top to get finding servers/shares working) finds my Samba shares on my LANDisk but does not see any files with "show files" just an unnamed mounted (with a green dot) folder. Even to get to this point I had to apply the CIFs fix that Barry put in 431(documented in this blog last year) but does not appear to be in the the pet I got from the repository and hence seems to be missing in Woof I guess.

I think some testers had Samba working in Q1.1. I don't use Samba, never have, so I just apply whatever people tell me. If anyone can figure out what is wrong with Samba in Q1.2rc, please post the fix. Username: 28 May 2010, 19:41
