Getting ready for alpha5

I am getting alpha5 ready, and fixed a couple of bugs reported in alpha4.

No scrollwheel. This was because the mouse protocol in /etc/X11/xorg.conf was set to "auto". I found that it had to be set to "IMPS/2". I did not change xorgwizard, instead made a change in /etc/rc.d/rc.sysinit to finally dump /dev/psaux and use /dev/input/mice for both USB and PS/2 mice -- the flow-on effect causes xorgwizard to choose "IMPS/2" protocol for both types.

Clicking on a package to install it, the menu did not update. Fixed.

Someone reported that Pmount cannot mount partitions. Works fine for me.

I think perhaps some people are not reporting the full conditions. In particular, they may have upgraded a previous pup_save file, in which case who knows it could be anything that caused the bug.

PPM dependents list not scrollable
Any remedy for the inability to scroll down the list of dependents when using the puppy package manager in JauntyPup? I think the problem also exists in all the woof builds.

missing libpcap
Fresh boot of upup-461 (pfix=ram)

Tried to use my gprs modem -- when the connect script ran pppd failed b/c libpcap was not available. Works fine after libpcap is d/l from
the repository. BTW -- the package search feature is wonderful!

There seem to be a few other missing dependencies:

# xdpyinfo
xdpyinfo: error while loading shared libraries: libXxf86dga.so.1: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

# vi xxx
Segmentation fault

(I can use geany for now)

missing dependencies in /usr/bin
Note this is after I installed libpcap. Hope this is helpful:

# for f in $(ls /usr/bin/*); do
DEPS=$(ldd $f | grep "not found");
if [ -n "$DEPS" ] ; then
echo $f; echo $DEPS; echo;
fi;
done

Re: missing deps
nycllama,
Thanks for the info!

Can't wait to give it a try.
Never had an issue with the scroll wheel (Logitech USB).

Xorg works like a charm (Ubuntu just doesn't get my Intel 845G to work. Not even 9.04).

Looking forward to it!

Cheers,
Martin

alpha 5
Good work!

Forum is down.

Some bugs:
mount (the desktop icon mount) when trying to mount drive it disappears
xserver choose wizard missing some icons
mtpaint -> save -> push desktop button -> folder unreadable: no such file or directory
desktop icon write does nothing(abiword from console works)
no menu icons? (is it bug)

Running frugal from subfolders, created new save file on reboot.

After reboot write icon works.
After reboot mount works.

Is it just me?(no pfix =ram)

Re: Forum
John,
Thanks for your on-going support with the forum. It must be quite a burden for you, and of course you have to tolerate snipers every now and again. ...as WhoDo has discovered, being in a position of running the show.

I have offered before, but again, if you need a bit of cash for the hosting let me/us know. I don't suppose those Google ads bring in much (?)
