Have downloaded the updated Sylpheed 3.7.0 pet, will install when back
in ScPup. For now, in Slacko 6.9.9.9, I'll just keep the older one. I think
you may be correct regarding removing the original first in ScPup
removing the symlinks, as I don't remember seeing them when I was
flipping thru everything with ROX.
Thanks Oscar! Wink

Subject description: Nor LibreOffice
 

G'day peebee,

Running your latest 32-bit ScPup as a frugal.

Almost all my apps are running with just a few minor problems:

1) hwmon module (for CPU Temps) still not working - I reported this in earlier ScPups; module smsc47b397 is said to be loaded by Boot Manager but running sensors in a terminal says otherwise.

2) I have succeeded in getting the 'epson-printer-utility' package to display my printer ink levels in place of the non-working inkgui package; needed a link for ld-lsb.so.3 (from ld-2.29.so) and a re-boot but this previous problem in ScPups now is solved

3) Evince is not reading pdf files; perhaps the error messages (screenshot) will help with a fix? LibreOffice also would not open a pdf so it sounds like a lib issue, not a bug in Evince nor LibreOffice which both work well in other Pups.

Thanks for your time.

David S.

9a49f2d77e46558dffce15cb9c5ea81e ScPup-19.01+5-uefi-T.iso

32-bit iso rebuilt with missing component added and re-uploaded - also deltas.

Left Sylpheed at 3.5.1 for the moment.

Osmo contacts segfault - does reverting to:
http://ftp.slackware.com/pub/slackware/slackware-14.2/slackware/l/libxml2-2.9.4-i586-2.txz
which fixes that segfault affect any other apps I wonder? Testing needed!

@davids45 - I don't see problems with pdf files on a pristine frugal install - what else have you got loaded?

==============
from Slackware Current change log:
l/libxml2-2.9.5-i586-1.txz: Upgraded.
Added python3 version.
This release fixes some security issues:
Detect infinite recursion in parameter entities (Nick Wellnhofer),
Fix handling of parameter-entity references (Nick Wellnhofer),
Disallow namespace nodes in XPointer ranges (Nick Wellnhofer),
Fix XPointer paths beginning with range-to (Nick Wellnhofer).
(* Security fix *)

Here are ydrvs that can be included in frugal installs to test if reverting to libxml2-2.9.4 causes any problems:

Hey peebee!
Well so far so good with the updated iso, and the ydrv.sfs...the older
Sylpheed fired right up, and Osmo doesn't crash when adding a
contact...by the way, if you see "Tom Test", tell him I didn't include
any PPI (Protected Personal Information), LOL!! Laughing
No problems noted yet, but it's still early in the test phase.
Good work though, ScPup 32 is looking and behaving VERY well!
Hmmm...we give our dachshund treats when she behaves, will
have to work on a treat for ScPup!

PostPosted: Tue 12 Mar 2019, 01:39    Post subject: Evince PDF problem [SOLVED]
Subject description: A problem of all my own work, alas....
 

G'day peebee,

Thanks for taking the time to check Evince and pdf reading following my post above.

It definitely looks like something I'd done, as starting afresh with a new SCPup Frugal (pdfs are reading well), adding my all-in-one sfs of applications' links (pdfs still reading), and lastly installing the .deb of the epson-printer-utility (needing a lib sym-link plus a reboot to get its daemon running), pdfs are still reading without the messages I had before.

Happy, but none the wiser as to what went wrong (apart from me).
If I get (un)lucky, I may do it again.
But I'm backing up the save file so it should be only a few-minute fix.

Thanks again,
David S.

I downloaded the SCPup64 19.01+0 iso yesterday and also the +5 delta. I generated the +5.iso and did a new frugal install to USB flash drive. I had previously avoided using the light browser adrive provided, but as there had been a fix for the certificate issues posted a short while ago, decided to try light browser as provided. It's very impressive now. It now is an excellent browser. The whole distribution is functioning beautifully.

Thank you peebee for such great puppies that you continue to produce.

Hi peebee!

I've put ScPup 19.01 +5 32 bit with fixes for Sylpheed and Osmo thru its paces,
so far, no issues to report. Think I've at least launched just about every
item in the menu, lol! Everything does at least fire up as expected.
This puppy is getting really good, easy to use, flexible, and has plenty
of features. At least I don't have to let it out the door like I do my dachshund, hehe! Laughing
Thank you, excellent work.

https://sourceforge.net/projects/spup/files/ScPup64/updates/ydrv_ScPup64_19.01.sfs/download

As there have been 14 downloads of the ydrvs and no reports of problems, libxml2 will revert in the next build just to cure the osmo/contacts segfault Confused

Testing out ScPup 32 19.01 +6 now! So far, no issues, looking good,
and behaving nicely. This old Acer Aspire netbook with Intel Atom N270
and only 1 gig RAM is still alive!!
PS...I run from a frugal install to HD, along with 512 meg pupswap for my
Puppies, and each has its own savefile. Can also boot WinXP SP3 if
needed. Other puppies in use: Slacko 6.3.2, and Slacko 700 RC3,
both also 32 bit (Intel Atom N270 CPU does not support 64 bit OSes),
I also keep Slacko 6.3.2 on a 4 gig USB thumbdrive in case I travel,
and somewhere in a box I have an old 512 meg thumbdrive with an
earlier Slacko. Oh, and a couple of other thumbdrives have the old
Slax 6.1.2, and another has Slax 7.0.5...guess you might get the idea
I'm partial to Slackware...what can I say, Slackware doesn't follow the
modern paradigm of upgrade just for the sake of it, only when it is
considered stable and ready! I like that!
Thank you peebee! Great work!

Cursory LiveCD test of "+6" 32-bit. The only glitch I found was that the default image viewer GPicView 0.2.5 doesn't render AnimGIFs correctly. (DPupStretch 7.5 CE has the same version of GPicView but patched to render AnimGIFs.)

Animated GIF bug confirmed in ScPup 32 19.01+6, another "bug" seems
to be in the Palemoon Updater...it can't connect to server. No biggie,
it updated itself anyway, lol!

gpicview in ScPup (& LxPupSc) comes from ponce.cc:
http://ponce.cc/slackware/slackware-current/packages/gpicview-0.2.5-i486-1ponce.txz

Please test if either of these 2 versions fixes the gif problem:

Arch32: (rename from .tar.xz to .txz to load)
https://mirror.archlinux32.org/i686/community/gpicview-0.2.5-4.0-i686.pkg.tar.xz

Debian Stretch:
http://ftp.br.debian.org/debian/pool/main/g/gpicview/gpicview_0.2.5-2+b1_i386.deb

Please post the .gif that causes problems

(@Wiz57 - Palemoon isn't part of ScPup - did you download the sfs from the repo? It probably needs the updater removing....)
