Racy Puppy 5.4.93 (5.5 Release Candidate 2)

March 01, 2013 — BarryK
Looking good!


The only known bug so far is the Pmusic one, see previous blog post.

Handling of nVidia graphics is still a bit messy. This has been a long-term problem, and I need to get my old PC with nVidia card out of the garage, so as to try and improve the situation. But, will have to target this for the next release after Racy/Wary 5.5-final.

Note: Racy 5.5RC2 is using the 3.0.66 kernel.

gtklp in Racy

"Gtklp, a printer manager, is in both Wary and Racy, however I just discovered that the PET package is missing a .desktop file, so there is no menu entry. Fixed, and I did a quick check that it works in latest Racy.
