I have uploaded version 1.3 to ibiblio (46KB):

However, I found that was broken. One significant problem is that it did not find any dependencies below "level 1", that is, nested dependencies.
So, I reverted that fix, then re-implemented it. Woof commit:
Note, the code that npierce created was pretty good. The logic of this part of the PPM is mind-bending, even for me, so getting it just-right is far from easy. Npierce's work was a good starting point for me to look at where the fixes are required.

Gimp SFS is based on one created by Forum member scabz, the nVidia SFS created with getnvidia-0.7:
I have uploaded the SFS files to ibiblio (20.8MB, 28MB):

I had some very messy code in script /usr/local/petget/pkg_chooser.sh, now cleaned up, and that bug fixed.

...this was documented awhile back in my blog.
At the time, I didn't quite implement it fully in the Puppy Package Manager, or rather I did but didn't test it. Forum member npierce has been investigating this, and has posted a solution to the Forum:
This fix looks good, I have put it into Woof:

Yes, this is a logical bug in /usr/sbin/delayedrun, and is a Woof-level bug applying to all pups. Fixed, will be in next Woof upload.
Clicking on the clock, bottom-right of tray, is supposed to bring up a calendar, however Precise Puppy is missing the 'minixcal' PET. Fixed. This is not a Woof bug, as such, or rather it is, as the package-list used to build Precise is in Woof.
But it is really classified as a Precise bug.

5.2.73 is the same, except that I used Ubuntu 'mesa' DEBs (not all of them) instead of my 'mesa' PET. Some notes:
This one is the most "Ubuntu standard", so preferred from the compatibility viewpoint. Ubuntu splits the original 'mesa' package into about 26 DEBs (although I am not sure if all of them are taken out of the original mesa pkg). These are some that I did not include in the build:
This is what I did include:
I don't know if I included enough mesa DEBs, but it is running ok with my Intel video -- though I note neither the i915_dri.so nor swrast_dri.so modules have loaded.
'libGL.so*' is being provided by 'libgl1-mesa-glx' DEB, but note that alternative libGL files are in 'libgl1-mesa-swx11' DEB. I don't know what the difference is.

Some notes for 5.2.72:
...lots of delta files this time, if you have already downloaded an earlier Precise beta.
Posted on 30 Aug 2012, 6:30 - Category: Puppy - 4 Comments
There are no delta-files, due to this build using gzip. As earlier builds use xz compression, the delta files are actually bigger than the original files!
I will now do another build, with the PAE-enabled kernel and Radeon-KMS enabled. Also the SFS xz'ed for smaller size.
Basically, the "no-pae" build will suit older hardware, also (probably) older Radeon video cards. But, it will be interesting to try both, if you have ATI/Radeon video (and CPU can handle PAE, which is most of them, even older i686).
Note, do not re-use the same save-file when testing the next pae-enabled build, they are incompatible.
Another note: beta3 reports, some issues with printing. I did upgrade cups from 1.3.11 to 1.4.8, relative to beta2, so maybe some problems got introduced? I don't have access to a printer right now, can't test.
Woof commit of version used for this build:
...however, /etc/DISTRO_SPECS needs to have the appropriate kernel PET selected:
