Pfilesearch, Pfind, Pschedule, pupRadio, wcpufreq

September 15, 2011 — BarryK
I just did a round of upgrading, getting things together for next releases.

Zigbert's apps:
Pfilesearch 1.25 -> 1.26
Pfind 4.22 -> 4.23
Pschedule 1.0.1 -> 1.0.2

01micko's app:
pupRadio 0.11 -> 0.14

Tazoc's app:
wcpufreq 0.7 -> 0.8

These will all be uploaded to the 'common' repo soon.

I completely understand the idea of keeping Puppy on a diet. Here, though, are 2 tools which are extremely helpful in managing any PUP PC without having the need to run multiple tools separate to [u]achieve the same results. Another Tazoc's app[/u] - [b]"Report-Video-GLX"[/b] - Thtis gives a little more information about the video environment. [u]Another Shinobar app[/u] - [b]"FirstRUN/{ertsonalize Settings"[/b] - This gives a complete resolution to the problems Puppy had with setting hosename It also deliver some other newbie 'ease of use' fields in its single screen from managing the PUP PC. Hope this helps

These SCSI interfaces are found on Dell PowerEdge servers, for example; one of the most common SCSI-equipped computers on the market. Details on the forum -

"tempestuous, Ok, I have written it into my to-do list. But, it won't happen until the next time I compile a kernel, which is a way off. Probably it will happen before the Wary 5.2 final.
