Kernel updated PET

I posted today about recompiling the kernel:

The PET is here:

This PET can be used for all Woof-built puppies based on the 4.x series (such as the various experimental 4.3.2 builds), or any Puppy that wants an older kernel.

Hi Barry I built the latest woof-build, and based it on 4 series.
4 packages weren't found,
1 wallpaper-0.5.6
2 powerapplet
3 seamonkey_addon_user_agent_switcher
4 seamonkey_addon_flashblock
plus it didn't come with a flash player package
Also the sound didn't work and I'm getting a lot of errors that contain this message.
"/usr/lib/ no version information available"
The release and devX can be found at

alsa not autostarting
Hi Barry if I use the alsa setup and manually setup sound it works, when I boot clean this is the xerrs.log before I manually set the sound
kill: usage: kill [-s sigspec | -n signum | -sigspec] [pid | job]... or kill -l [sigspec]

Much appreciated!
Thanks Barry! This solves my P4 auto-throttling problem in Puppy 5.x.

However: now hdparm -S (spindown/standby time) gets ignored (?) - it acts as if everything's OK, but has no effect.
