'lame' missing

coolpup reported that the 'lame' executable is missing from Q1.2rc.

Yes, I left it out deliberately as it compiled statically with libmp3lame, so was rather big.

However, I have recompiled, added '--disable-static' to force 'lame' to link with the shared library. So next build of Quirky will have 'lame'.

Geany problem

Quirky testers have reported a problem with Geany opening files over a network. Quirky has Geany version 0.18, but 0.18.1 has bug fixes specifically for that problem.

So, I compiled 0.18.1, but unfortunately the syntax highlighting for Genie is lost.

I filed a report:

SeaMonkey: eliminate Flash player?

This post from forum member gonkbag is very interesting:

I posted that there is a version of Greasemonkey for SM 2.x -- see above link. However, it doesn't seem to have made it into the Mozilla download repo yet:

I don't know about the other ones, 'unplug', etc.

Interesting project for someone, see if you can get Flash playing working in Quirky 1.2rc without the Adobe player (/usr/lib/mozilla/plugins).

Modems broken in Quirky-Retro 1.1

Thanks to Raman who tested 15 win-modems. These all work in Puppy 4.3.1, but only 2 work in Quirky-Retro 1.1.

Rerwin, who is our main guy for analog and 3G modem support in Puppy, has helped out, and found the reason.

Forum thread:

I applied the fix in Quirky-Retro 1.2rc. The files are currently uploading, estimated completion time 16 hours from now, however for the impatient, Quirky-Retro 1.2rc has completed uploading, find it here:
