Precise Puppy beta6

My Puppy work has slowed right down, due to myself having "the flu". There is a lot more that I could have done before releasing beta6, but I think that there is enough new stuff to release it now.


Regarding the PPM, rodin.s reported that a search for deps for 'kajongg' application found 165 deps and took a few minutes. The latest PPM is faster, on my laptop it took 33 seconds and found 173 missing deps.

VLC is a good one to test. PPM deps search found 68 missing deps and the search took about 18 seconds. The automatic fix using bbe to allow running as root works, I just tried it.

Just for the record. No change in behaviour for both .91 and .93. Same grey screen as before. Perhaps a darker shade of grey.

black screen and savefiles
I haven't tried Slacko beta builds yet, but I had the same problems trying to boot Akita Linux, LupQ, and Slacko JP, I can't boot any of them with a savefile, I can only boot to RAM without saving any sessions. I thought it was my computer but I tried booting the live CDs in a new all-in-one computer and the bug remains. This doesn't happen to me with standard Puppy builds and most of its derivatives.

not slacko - precise
Sorry, I was thinking of Slacko while writing on my phone's tiny web browser app. So Precise has catched that bug? I wonder what it is. I haven't tried any Precise builds yet, just a derivative, Macpup 529.

Please update Seamonkey 2.9.1 in your next (beta?) release (latest is 2.12.1 at the moment)!

Thanks a lot.
