Woof uploaded, May 13, 2011

The last upload of Woof was on May 6, 2011:

In the short time since then, there have been some significant bug fixes.

Today's version is commit '20110513122352'.

For introduction and instructions to download Woof, go here:

So, if you have previously downloaded Woof, all you have to do this time is run this in the Woof project directory to update to the latest Woof files:

# bones download

Bones also has a GUI, just type "bones<RETURN>".

It is preferable to download Woof with the full history, but people on dialup or otherwise limited download capability, a tarball without history is available (17MB):

...but do note the "bones download" will not work for later updates. That is on the to-do list. To be able to update Woof with "bones download", you first need to download Woof with entire history.

can't run '/sbin/mingetty error and PCMCIA error
Tried to build Puppy 525 using last woof-20110513122352.tar.gz
Used successive two different kernels and and got following errors
1. when used separate zdrv.sfs got an error regarding PCMCIA slot
2. pressed enter and after setting keyboard and local/UTC time, got another error every 2 seconds:
can't run '/sbin/mingetty: No suchfile or directory[i][/i] and couldn't go further and load xorg
Downloaded woof tar.gz again, put all the modules in 525.sfs and got just the second error.
Have anyone had success in building Puppy 525 using last version of woof? Am I wrong in using Woof or there is a bug in the last woof?
