Service Pack auto-check bug-fix

November 29, 2012 — BarryK
I posted earlier about a Service Pack auto-check when the PPM is started:

A bug crept through on that one. Fixed. Woof commit:

You will see also updated Release Notes in that commit.

I have discovered some more bugs in the PPM, four of them to be exact. I intend to fix these tonight, and hopefully Woof will then have reached a stable plateau that I will then leave alone for awhile, and it should be a good basis for the Puppy-builders.

There will also be a bug-fix-of-a-bug-fix release of Precise Puppy, version, which I have to do due to annoying bugs that are still in 5.4.1. There will also be a Service Pack PET for 5.4.1.

Woof having reached a plateau, and x86 Precise hopefully "substantially bug-free", I want to move on to other things. Forum member pemasu is doing a nice job working on an enhanced Upup, so I will leave him to it, and 01micko is working on a great new Slacko.

I want to get back onto the ARM boards. "Best laid plans of mice and men" of course, but that is the intention.

"Got to be a wise decision as we see the interest and sales in RPi going through the roof. Maybe not the most desirable board with no vga port and other apparently problematic HW choices, but it wins on price, documentation and, notably, availability. Add to that the plethora of HW support from CPC/Farnell/Element14, charitable status and you have the whole package. Expect a v.C in the New Year?
