Precise Puppy beta6

September 11, 2012 — BarryK
My Puppy work has slowed right down, due to myself having "the flu". There is a lot more that I could have done before releasing beta6, but I think that there is enough new stuff to release it now.


Regarding the PPM, rodin.s reported that a search for deps for 'kajongg' application found 165 deps and took a few minutes. The latest PPM is faster, on my laptop it took 33 seconds and found 173 missing deps.

VLC is a good one to test. PPM deps search found 68 missing deps and the search took about 18 seconds. The automatic fix using bbe to allow running as root works, I just tried it.

"Just for the record. No change in behaviour for both .91 and .93. Same grey screen as before. Perhaps a darker shade of grey.
