Modem upgrade -7.2

August 09, 2010 — BarryK
I have applied rerwin's latest modem PETs:
...note PREFLIST variable got totally removed from /etc/rc.d/MODULESCONFIG

Note that except for the 'usb-modeswitch-1.1.3', the PETs get built into Woof so are no longer separate PETs.

Forum thread:

After a LOOONG time, they finally managed to fix the Linux responsiveness problem when there's a good amount of hard disk activity: Patches / backports are available for all kernels NOW :) I'd love to see this fix implemented in Puppy."6 Aug 2010, 14:30"01745"'VPN for Puppy"ChrisThomas"Barry, Can you please make a VPN .pet?

"01745"'script broken"BarryK"Please do not apply in any Puppy greater than 4.x, as it breaks network setup. The script /usr/sbin/connectwizard is overwritten with a very old version. I will contact rerwin about this and he will post an upgrade for the PET. Username: 8 Aug 2010, 16:20
