EasyOS Pyro64 0.8.1 released

March 14, 2018 — BarryK

Upgraded SeaMonkey, now at 2.49.2. New Inkscape 0.92.2, included in the build -- I like a good selection of graphics apps builtin, so this joins Gimp, LibreOffice-Draw, Dia, and mtPaint.

The Intel Xorg driver, 'xf86-video-intel' has been upgraded to a recent out of git. We are trying to find out why EasyOS is troublesome on some hardware. It is Intel GPU related.

The Xorg Wizard now has an option to switch between 'sna' and 'uxa' video acceleration, the latter suiting older hardware (I think).


We are discussing the stability issue on the Puppy Forum:

"Unfortunately", EasyOS is completely stable on my PCs, and all four of them have Intel video! So, I can't reproduce the problems myself.
