Experimental unofficial Puppy 4.3.2

Here it is again, with the fix for ROX-Filer:


The ISO has all the modem drivers in it, which is why it is a bit big (112MB). SCSI drivers are missing.

There is a forum thread for feedback:


I'm only really interested in bug reports of a certain type: if something worked in 4.3.1 but not in this 4.3.2 build. It would be nice to know about the reverse also: something that did not work in 4.3.1 and does in 4.3.2.

I must reiterate that I did not create this with the intention that it will be the next official 4.3.2 release. I'm mostly just wanting to know that Woof builds a sane Puppy 4.x.

delta.. careful
Hi Barry

I started to download the delta file then realised I only have the pup-431-small iso... that wouldn't work.

Barry 432 stops loading when the "Loading Kernel Module" message appears.

md5sum matches so the download was good.

I will try another burn tonight.

Hi Barry

I thought I better report this one straight away, a bug in dir2pet. I made a simple script based pet and it failed ... see the forum thread lobster started.

I suppose it would have implications for all woof builds from the latest woof. I should have tested your scripts posted on the forum, I'm guessing people downloaded but didn't test! Plenty have downloaded!

No bug
Sorry, no bug, oops.

Didn't realise I couldn't make a pet while running "pfix=ram". Or should I be able to?

It works fine after I make a pupsave.

Barry, can you elaborate on the fix to ROX? Was this related to the GDK_NATIVE_WINDOWS? Where is the patch with the changes?

Damn Good
Odd really, I really like this version. OpenOffice SEEMS to render better and the screen SEEMS to redraw quicker. No bugs in the .iso, but I found Petmaker would not work with included dir2pet. Swapped it for one in 4.3.1 and it is fine.
I love the way your stuff has so few bugs, really helps a dunce like me................

RE: ROX-fix
Okay, thanks, Barry. But, I thought you had maybe found the offending code in ROX and had patched it to fix it. I looked around a lot the other day regarding this problem and only found real fixes for eclipse and some other program, although problems were reported with many programs. I did find a fix for GTK itlsef which lets the GDK_NATIVE_WINDOWS propogate for any child windows -might give a clue as to where/how to disable the offending code in GTK. In the end though, programs themselves will have to be fixed.

Barry it must have been a bad burn as the next burn worked fine.
