Plans for Drake Puppy

July 25, 2011 — BarryK
I can crash SeaMonkey 1.1.18 in Drake Puppy consistently, in fact Xorg crashes and I get dropped back to the pre-X console. On my blog, type "fido" in the search box, then either left-click or right-click on the link-result of the search, then X crashes.

I have compiled SM 2.2 in Drake Puppy, it does not crash.

Planning ahead a little bit, I intend to bring out Drake Puppy 0.3 in a couple of days.

This will showcase the latest features of Woof, but also should have many bug fixes for Drake Puppy itself. I will get onto reading the Drake pup feedback thread in the forum this afternoon.

I am using Drake Puppy everyday, mostly because the video resolution is correct on my new laptop.

Drake, wary and pup4.3.1 have max resolution 1920x1440 (xvesa) or 1600x1200 (xorg). What about 2560x1600 and 2560x1440? (Can't check lupu5.2.5 - it goto sleep mode on DELL 2711 monitor.)

"Being one of the first user friendly distros I have good memories of mandrake. I gave up on Mandrake after many, many glitches. Me the newbie concluded that it was a perennial unfinished distro.
