'kdm' - K Display Manager. To enable, see Advanced Options in

startup bug and eliminated 'FirstRun' scripts.

but KDE4 Sound System doesn't--so I improvised Login and Logout sounds

out of KDE4 is much quicker.

multimedia apps like Amarok and MPlayer is working, so ALSA is ok.)

5.10, rss-glx (Really Slick Screensavers) to 0.9

3.04 and Pmusic
0.9.2 by zigbert.
- Kernel updated to 22.214.171.124 from Puppy 4.3. Includes new squashfs
4.0, so prior add-ons will not work without updating from website or
converting them to 4.0 with included SFS Converter or CL tools
unsquashfs3 and dir2sfs. Squashfs 4.0 is optimized for speed over
compression, so main file and add-ons are 10-15% larger than prior

by MU is included.
- 'Pup-dip-gui' optimizer now executed from ~/.xinitrc; GUI splash

- Amarok 2 wouldn't open,
so it was reverted to 1.4.10 with lyrics panel and visualizations.
