5.2.73 is the same, except that I used Ubuntu 'mesa' DEBs (not all of them) instead of my 'mesa' PET. Some notes:
This one is the most "Ubuntu standard", so preferred from the compatibility viewpoint. Ubuntu splits the original 'mesa' package into about 26 DEBs (although I am not sure if all of them are taken out of the original mesa pkg). These are some that I did not include in the build:
This is what I did include:
I don't know if I included enough mesa DEBs, but it is running ok with my Intel video -- though I note neither the i915_dri.so nor swrast_dri.so modules have loaded.
'libGL.so*' is being provided by 'libgl1-mesa-glx' DEB, but note that alternative libGL files are in 'libgl1-mesa-swx11' DEB. I don't know what the difference is.

I reckon I can't tell the difference between this and 5.2.72, exactly the same on my cedar radeon, see forum report for 5.2.72 (next post fter 5.2.72 announcement) and the report would be identical.
Gaming is working quite well.

Same as mick, almost. Seems to work as well as 71, even on old junk. No CUPS, no video issues.

precise fail on asus 1025c
precise 5.2.73 grub booted manual frugal
probably the wrong iso but anyhow the behavior was as reported by me on the precise thread in puppy forum.
grey screens after/while "loading kernel modules"
using a pupsave that was good in a previous precise, no messages were written to var/log and /tmp was not created.
tried both pfix=ram and also with the previously good pupsave in/from my previous equipment.
hardinfo output on asus 1025c at http://www.datafilehost.com/download-3b98540f.html (mostly the same except for lupu528.004 which says that it runs faster)
(quickpet lupu528.004 asus 1025c says "For your Intel video card, Intel Corporation Cedarview Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 09) we think the best add on driver is Xorg_High".)
have running on asus1025c saluki023 racy522 lupu528.004, quirks 100, 120, 140, fluppy 12&13, puppy301. so this problem is in precise only so far.

re asus 1025c
One small thing to check. Type "lsmod" in a terminal, and see whether "i915" or "i810" is loaded. If the latter, I don't think the the Intel Xorg driver will work, and you may have to run with the "vesa" driver -- but, I'm not sure about that. I'm not really up-to-date with the latest twists of this stuff.

Re asus intel
It does seem to be a kernel problem. It would be interesting to see if some other distro that uses the 3.2.x kernel, such as Ubuntu Precise Pangolin, has this problem.
