"Windows upgrade"

Terry sent me a pm with this very amusing paragraph:

I have two friends that I booted their Windows computer with Puppy to fix a problem who called and told me how much they LOVE THE WINDOWS UPGRADE!!! I went back to their house, and found that I had not pulled out the Puppy disk and re-booted after we started drinking beer, chatting, and I went on home a couple hours later!!!

Macpup 529

I have just seen this on distrowatch.com, Macpup 529:
http://distrowatch.com/?newsid=07396

I knew about Macpup, but I didn't know the guys (runtt21 and prit) have based the latest on the Woof-built Precise Puppy 5.2.60 (beta2), which I announced awhile back:
http://bkhome.org/blog/?viewDetailed=02860

Hmmm, that was June 6. After that I was absorbed by the ARM boards. Well, now I'm "back" so there is going to be a beta3 soon.

It is good to see the Macpup initiative. if they stay synced with latest Woof, they will be able to incorporate the significant improvements that I have recently done for package categories and icons -- though I do need to tidy it up over the next few days, then will (or rather plan to) build beta3 and upload latest Woof.

ShareInternet and dnsmasq

Forum member gyro has created this very interesting application to turn a Puppy-PC into a router:
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=37520

Gyro's PET has 'dnsmasq', a binary executable, in it. I have taken that out, so there are now two PETs (106KB, 14KB):

Wary/Racy plans

My ODROID-X quad-core Cortex-A9 ARM board has arrived, and I ran Android 4.0.4 on it. Nice and fast!

However, I plan to put the ARM boards on the back-burner for awhile and do some work on Wary and Racy, look toward releasing version 5.4.

The last release was 5.3, on April 5, 2012, announced here:
http://bkhome.org/blog/?viewDetailed=02784

I intend to start reading the Wary/Racy feedback thread on the Forum, from page 7:
http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=77303&start=90

I think that I will upgrade CUPS from 1.3.11 to 1.4.8. There is a problem with printing in landscape mode, reported by vtpup:

RP: JWM problem?

I upgraded JWM from 574 to 579, see earlier blog post. Since then, there has been some peculiar behaviour, and I am now reverting to 574.

I have made a bug report to Joe, the JWM developer:
http://sourceforge.net/tracker/?func=detail&aid=3553850&group_id=157836&atid=805416

I have recompiled 'pngoverlay' in sap6, as 01micko reported a bug. I think that previously I had compiled it in Gentoo on RP. This will be in the next Woof commit.

RP: recompiling 3.1.9 kernel

Today I have downloaded the latest patched 3.1.9 kernel source for the Raspberry Pi, from here:
https://github.com/raspberrypi/linux

I had previously been through this exercise, and that resulted in the kernel used in Squeezed Arm Puppy alpha4. That was about one month ago.

Now I am doing it again, with a few changes to the .config:

bcm2835 sound driver built-in
deadline scheduler (instead of cfq)
disabled automatic devtmpfs mounting on /dev


Also, this time I did not apply any of my own patches, that is, left out unionfs and usb-printk patches. Only applied the loglevel patch.

I have just started the compile on my RP.

I have also downloaded the latest firmware from here:
https://github.com/raspberrypi/firmware

Desktop icon themes

Jemimah and vicmz have created some nice icons for the desktop and menu:

I have uploaded these to the 'noarch' repo on ibiblio:
