Wary Puppy 5.1.1.56 (5.1.2 beta2)

Get it from here:

http://distro.ibiblio.org/quirky/wary-5.1.1.56

Still an awful theme. Not much more done on 'fido', except thanks to 01micko and tazoc for fido-friendly package updates. Some extremely important bug fixes since 5.1.1.53, read my blog. New 2.6.32-40 kernel.

I have also uploaded delta files, for upgrading from Wary 5.1.1 or 5.1.1.53.

application_x-bittorrent NOT set to Transmission
Wary 5.1.1.53 and 5.1.1.56
application_x-bittorrent NOT set to Transmission

I downloaded the ubuntu torrent link:
ubuntu-11.04-desktop-i386.iso.torrent

When I clicked it, it did not open Transmission.
ok, I said to myself "what is the runtime action?"

This is what I found:
/root/Choices/MIME-types/application_x-bittorrent

That file it is referencing pctorrent:
#!/bin/bash

echo "$1" > $HOME/.pctorrent/torrfile
pctorrent &

1) searched for pctorr:
# find / -iname '*pctorr*'
And found nothing.

2) searched for transmiss:
# find / -iname '*transmiss*'
/usr/share/applications/transmission-gtk.desktop

This is the content of that file:
#! /bin/sh
exec transmission-gtk "$@"

3) changed application_x-bittorrent:
#!/bin/bash

## echo "$1" > $HOME/.pctorrent/torrfile
## pctorrent &

exec transmission-gtk "$@"

4) clicking the .torrent file now works.

Is this the right thing to do?

wary 5.1.1.56 rsync missing
wary 5.1.1.56 rsync missing

Thought I would look at Snap2 snapshot backup but the dialog said rsync missing.

Went to console:
which rsync

Not here!

rsync is in devx
rsync is in devx

I did not have devx loaded in 5.1.1.56

So... Why does Snap2 snapshot backup depend on it?

screen saver bug
wary 5.1.1.56 and 5.1.1.53 screen saver bug

Menu > Desktop > pupX set properties of X > Screensaver
+ enable screen saver
+ check blank screen rather than pattern

+ wary starts screen saver with blank screen,
+ but key or mouse will only return to show the mouse pointer,
+ can reboot computer blindly

+ uncheck blank screen,
+ screen saver "X" is displayed and
+ returns to wary ok

both of these settings work ok in wary 5.1.1

xdelta
Hi, Is there an xdelta file which will carry me from 5.1.1.56 to 5.1.2?

re xdelta
No, I only uploaded xdelta from 5.1.1.
