Lupu last beta before 5.1

August 04, 2010 — BarryK
Lupu, our Puppy based on Ubuntu Lucid Lynx packages, is now on what is expected to be the last beta before the release of version 5.1. Please test!

See also my previous blog post, which has a fix for Simple Network Setup, get that script from here:
...expand it at /usr/local/simple_network_setup, make sure execute attribute is set. Test, make sure that my bug fix doesn't cause any new bug!


not auto ethernet

Hi Barry, This new does not seem to connect automatically if there is an ethernet connection, which the previous had been doing. Thanks. Username: 4 Aug 2010, 23:21
"01743"'SNS"BarryK"Hmmm, strange. The code that I modified in should not prevent wired ethernet from working. I can't test it, away from home. If you look in /etc/simple_network_setup/connections, the entry for the wired connection -- does the 6th field have the correct macaddress, as reported by "ifconfig -a"? If not, run the setup again.

"01743"'SNS"BarryK"I only modified the code in that creates /tmp/sns_connections_available. After bootup, you should find the wired ethernet entry from /etc/simple_network_setup/connections copied into this file, plus any other active wireless configurations found. Username: 5 Aug 2010, 8:11

Rebooted and had a connection immediately upon the reboot. Rebooted three more time and it's maintaining my wired ethernet connection.No problems."6 Aug 2010, 8:23"01743"'Email clients"Sage"No idea about relative sizes/complexities/GNU-stati/etc but not worth NOT using Claws these days. Think it may have branched from Sylpheed and latest version has more polish. OTOH, New Eudora1.0, now in rc1 .pet thanks to scsijon, well worth very close examination. Always used to be head&shoulders above the pack - only draw back was it used the wrong English dictionary so took a few months to train it to speak properly. Feedback appreciated, please."7 Aug 2010, 3:23"01743"'
