However, the ALSA Sound Wizard needs the full depmod to work. Note, the full version is named 'depmod-FULL'.
But, depmod-FULL has gone crazy. It worked right up until a day or to ago. I modified the script /usr/sbin/alsaconf to run the full depmod, tested it, all was fine.
I have no idea why it has gone crazy. What it does is create /lib/modules/126.96.36.199/modules.pcimap.temp that just keeps growing bigger and bigger until there is no memory left.
Hmmm, looks like we will need a service pack to fix this one.
Anyone want to have a go at compiling the latest module-init-tools package, see if they have fixed this problem?
Though, what the cause is, has me stumped. I wonder if one of the 3rd-party modules is causing the problem?
I had tested the ALSA Wizard very soon before releasing the final, so I thought hard, what changed before then and the final? ...ah, one thing, I put rerwin's 537 modem modules in. That's it, take them out and depmod-FULL works.
You will find them at /lib/modules/188.8.131.52/intelmodem
This bug does not affect pup-430-small.iso, only the full size pup-430.iso.
I'm going to rebuild and re-upload it, without the 537 modules.

Puppy 4.3 & depmod
Shouldn't affect a FULL install?

Yes, if you used pup-430.iso.
Just delete the 537 modules in /lib/modules/184.108.40.206/intelmodem

It affected woof the same. Depmod is nutty with my spup-430 build. Also, none of the text editors work either. Im going to build a dpup and archpup to see how they fair.
Not to get you jealous Barry, but I unpacked woof, dl'ed all slack/pup packages, and built the iso/devx in 3 hours!(i have a broadband 16mb/sec)

The ibiblio entry stopped at 105Mb .iso, this evening; the previous upload with the dud intelmodem was ~110Mb.
Is this correct or has there been another upload glitch? 5Mb of compressed filespace seems a lot?

Sage, that should be the newly re-uploaded ISO, so your download should be OK.

430-small is good
430-small reminds me of a corgi I once had - small, but so solid! Can't see anything vital missing.
Wuxi: I couldn't replicate your problem - suggest using xorg rather than xvesa may fix it.

The ISO size in the readme-files.htm is not yet changed (it is still 110 MB).
