EasyOS Kirkstone-series version 5.5.3 released

September 26, 2023 — BarryK

Version 5.5.2 was released on September 22, and we discovered some bugs, now fixed. Please read the 5.5.2 announcement:

Here are the release notes for 5.5.3:

...yes, ROX-Filer translation fix, SNS fix, filesystem-check fix. Also, youtube-dl now works.

The problem with ROX-Filer was that /usr/local/apps/ROX-Filer/Messages was an actual folder, whereas it should be a symlink. This problem arose in woofQ with changes to accommodate usr-merge. Another folder that is wrong in 5.5.2 is /root/.fpm, which should also be a symlink.

Note, if you update from 5.5.2 and find either of those folders is still an actual folder, find it in /mnt/wkg/.session and remove it then reboot without saving.

It seems also that the same problem has caused youtube-dl to misfunction with SSL. Test with a pristine 5.5.3 and youtube-dl now works.


Feedback is welcome in the EasyOS section of the Puppy Forum:

Have fun!
