I have a backlog of other non-Puppy stuff to do also. A lot of paperwork -- one thing, one of my elderly relatives went into a nursing home a little over a week ago, and I am managing all his finances and personal affairs.
Thought-provoking that, seeing someone leaving behind a house with lifetime collection of possessions, just one suitcase packed for the nursing home. Then of course, the "final journey", nothing is taken. Anyway, this kind of personal reflection is a bit off-track for what I intend this blog to be for -- I was going to start "Barry's Other Blog" for that kind of post!
For Puppy development, I will attempt to read all posts and catch up. I will document on this blog as I do things, and if you see after awhile that I have missed something important, let me know.
The objective will be a Precise Puppy RC1 released soon, maybe in a week, also beta2 of Wary and Racy.

I have updated the PET in the ibiblio 'common' repo.
Forum member mcewanw is working at a furious pace on Precord, a audio recorder/player app:
I have upgraded the PET at ibiblio 'noarch' repo to version 8.0.8.
I will upload the PETs soon.

Gpart is a tool which tries to guess the primary partition table of a PC-type disk in case the primary partition table in sector 0 is damaged, incorrect or deleted.
This utility is in Precise Puppy. Apparently Gparted will use it if it exists.
I have now compiled it in Wary and placed it in the 'common' repo for all builds to use.
Gpart Debian page:
I have uploaded the patched source to my sources repo:
Note, Gpart will be in the next build of Wary and Racy.

I am also building beta7 with non-PAE kernel, targeting older hardware, including older video hardware, which will be uploaded soon.

Heh heh, with all of these upgrades, you may have guessed that I am getting ready to build the next beta of Precise Puppy!
Yes, it will be beta7, but we can't just drag on releasing betas. So, I propose that this be the last beta, followed by an RC, hopefully followed by the final release of Precise Puppy.
As beta7 will have the 3.2.29 kernel, which I intend that we will stick with for the final and well into the future, I request peebee and others who have been creating extra kernel modules, to please do so for this kernel, so it will all be available for the RC.
As I want to move onto the RC fairly promptly, I want to minimise changes. In Woof, bug-fixing only, no new features.

I have uploaded these as-is to the 'noarch' repo, except for Precord I added some deps to the pet.specs file:
...although not *really* needed, as those are likely to be in all pup builds. We might sometimes do a build without ffmpeg though.

Precord Forum thread:
...notice, Precord already later version available. It is currently under rapid development.

I have added this to the 'noarch' repo on ibiblio:
In the same forum link, Forum member starhawk has made a nice little modification to the LagaBlueNight desk icon theme. The hard-drive and usb-drive icons were previously the same, starhawk has now created a special icon for usb-drives.
I have updated the PET in the 'noarch' repo to version 1.1:

I have uploaded the x86 PET (7KB):
The source can be found here:
This utility is compiled statically with dietlibc, and is also in Woof, in the initrd. This update will be in the next commit of Woof.
Note, I need to compile for ARM boards, will do that soon.
