Hello all.

Please find attached the procps utilities in (partial?) replacement of the
busybox ones. These are current.. I downloaded the source from gitlab
this afternoon, and compiled it.

This pet package provides:
Quote:
free
kill
pgrep
pidof
pkill
pmap
ps
pwdx
skill
slabtop
snice
tload
top
uptime
vmstat
w
watch

The add'l libtool library was needed to compile this package. It was not in
Puduan-7's "b3" devx. I got it from pkgs.org, in the DebianStretch repo.

As per forum rules, you will have to reconstitute the pet file from the two
attached parts, since it is too large as a single forum attachment. To do
so, go in your downloads directory and type, in console:
Code:
cat xa*.pet > procps-mstr20190401.pet
Then you will be able to install that file as usual.

I did notice that the < free > utility and the < top > utility had been
substantially "improved". The changes are not simply bug-fixes (although
those are indeed important) or cosmetic changes. In particular, the
< free > utility now.allows the user a finer-grained view of occupied RAM.

Please be warned that installing the attached pet archive will replace any
busybox trimmed-down version of the same provided ex-factory, and
probably add a couple of utilities your Puppy did not have (depending on
the Pup). Use at your own risk, as usual with GPL licences.

The tree of this pet archive is attached.

With a view of building better Puppies.

BFN.

Hello again, people.

Less 550 attached. Ex-factory woof-CE is providing less v. 481 for this
Puduan-7. Do I need to say more? The list of bug fixes, changes and
improvements from 69 versions ago is, shall we say, endless.

Compiled from the latest source, obtained today from
Greenwoods Sortware.

Do not forget to install the lesspipe complement to less. I'm not including
it because lesspipe does not need compiling per se. (If you cannot find it,
please ask below.)

Hello all.

Please find a compilation of conky-1.11.4_pre_190404, the latest as of
this writing, at http://augras.eu/puppy_linux/?dir=musher0/Puduan-7.0.0a2-2.

Please be aware that these new versions of conky are Lua-based. Some
of your previous conky configurations will work, while others will have to
be translated to conky's new configuration format.

~~~~~~~~~

Also, I have just now uploaded in that ftp folder a corrected version of
gnumeric-1-12.32. This new build is about 800Kb larger than the previous
one.

I noticed that the previous Debian build refused to load "older" gnumeric
formats, as I understand it. I've upgraded goffice to v. 0.10.44 from v.
0.10.42, and replaced the Debian-built gnumeric with the one I had
compiled for DPupBuster last month. Everything now seems to have
fallen into place nicely, AFAICT. But please report any oddities. TIA.

BFN.

Hello again all.

The libav media suite v. 12.3 now available at augras' PuppyLinux repo,
both as a pet archive and as an sfs.

Ffplay, the media player that comes with ffmpeg ex-factory, played music
files ok, but started segfaulting on movies and videos. I checked for file
fragmentation, and upgraded that partition from ext3 to ext4, but it wasn't
any of those things.

I chanced a switch to the most recent v. of libav, and it worked. Avplay
can play both.

Compiled on and for this Puduan-700a22. May not work on other Pups with
glibc-2.24, and will very probably not work on Pups that have a glibc library
below that version number.

BTW, libav is simpler to compile, and to configure in scripts, than its
ffmpeg cousin. The sound and the visuals are as good, as far as I can tell.

Enjoy.

Hello again, all.

I had to introduce a couple of lines in BK's AppRun script for
/usr/local/apps/Xlock/. Starting at line 153, to the end, like so:
Code:

#100608 lobster: disable ctrl-alt-backspace by disabling ctrl key...
# xmodmap -e 'keycode 37='
# xmodmap -e 'keycode 109='

[ "`pgrep xcompmgr`" ] && killall -q xcompmgr # musher0, 2019/04/06
if [ ! -f $HOME/.xlockrc ];then
 XLOCKPARAMS="`cat $HOME/.config/Xlock/xlockscreenparams`"
 rxvt -g 36x1 -title "Create key (password)" -e xlock $XLOCKPARAMS
else
 xlock `cat $HOME/.config/Xlock/xlockscreenparams`
fi
Appli=/opt/local/bin/xcompmgr.sh;[ -f $Appli ] && $Appli # musher0, 2019/04/06

#100608 lobster: restore...
# xmodmap -e 'keycode 37=Control_L'
# xmodmap -e 'keycode 109=Control_R'

###end###
Xlock and xcompmgr can't stand each other, it seems. Trying to run the
screen lock with xcompgmr on froze this Puduan-7 completely. A manual
reboot was required.

I'm not including the xcompmgr script because the parms are unimportant.
It's xcompmgr that's incompatible with xlock, not its parms.

I haven't got compton on this Pup. Maybe someone will wish to test if the
same bug exists when compton is running.

As to why I commented out lobster's xmodmap lines: when I got back
from the screen lock, the keyboard's control keys were disabled in ROX
and geany. With the xmodmap lines commented out, they remain
functional.

Complete edited script attached.

IHTH someone.

Hello all.

Please find attached a pet archive with the most recent htpdate (as of this
writing) compiled for our Puduan7.

You can learn more about htpdate, what it does, plus how and why it can
be useful, here.

Enjoy.
