MyWolf-024 alpha

I have a working Xfce-4.8 system working and have the alpha uploaded for you all to try out and let me know what it needs added to it and what is not working right.

Know issues are; Thunar volume management is not working it needs gnome virtual file system built and configured. In my test build the tumbler package built and installed fine and thumbnails worked but after building in woof thumbnails no longer work. The gxine I built to go with the xine-lib 1.1.19 but after build it will not run becouse of missing mozilla libs will have to add later. The menu need lots of work.

It has the same kernel Xorg 7.3a Xserver 1.7.5

I upgraded glib to 2.26.1 Gtk+ 2.22.1 pango 1.28.3

Added   acl-2.2.47, atk-1.9.0, attr-2.4.43 exo-0.6.0, FireFox-3.6.13, garcon-0.1.5, gdk-pixbuf-2.22.1,

Xfce 4.8

Well it is out. I am working on getting it going but first have to get a upgraded xorg-xserver compiled but before that have to compile a updated xcb libs. So it will take some time have to work and make money for a living but that is life. Things are going good so far had to upgrade the glib, gtk+ and pango first. Must alwas do it in steps to get it right.

All good plans don't always work

I had tried again to get Xfce-4.8-rc2 to build with not as much luck as I wanted. Could not get Thunar to mount drives, no way to reboot or poweroff but to log out and do it at console. Then the worst I have always told people how easy it is to back up puppy linux well not when you have a lot outside your save file like 60 gigs of files and you yourself did not do a backup and lost all your files on your drive so now I am set back a bit but will start over and try and document better and do it with a plan and not jumping in feet first. So back up puppy fans.

This is a test of the new glib 2.24.2 gtk+ 2.20.1 and pango 2.18.3. As a added bonus I put in the LibreOffice 3.3rc2 added back Gimp-2.6.8. I upgraded Xine libs to 1.1.19 and a few other small libs were upgraded. I also put back in Pidgin was hoping to put in the latest but it just does not want to compile. If those all work well have some more upgrade planed and am doing some more compiling now but that does not always mean I will get what I want. glibc has been a nightmare to get right.

You can download the iso here MyWolfe-022
