Hello gang!

I've started presenting my remaster here. See you there, hopefully!

BFN.

wget is missing ...installing that gets the PPM working

the firewall needs some items symlinking from /sbin to /usr/sbin
Code:

ln -s /sbin/ip6tables /usr/sbin/ip6tables
ln -s /sbin/ip6tables-restore /usr/sbin/ip6tables-restore
ln -s /sbin/ip6tables-save /usr/sbin/ip6tables-save
ln -s /sbin/iptables /usr//sbin/iptables
ln -s /sbin/iptables-restore /usr/sbin/iptables-restore
ln -s /sbin/iptables-save /usr/sbin/iptables-save


there seems to be a lot of stuff missing from the devx which is why billtoo was having problems compiling gkrellm

also you seem to have deleted stuff from the packages-puduan folder and not removed them from the DISTRO_PKG_SPECS... vlc for example. doing this messes up the PPM as it still thinks vlc and all its dependences are installed when they are not.

the kernel isn't to good ...couldn't see my soundcard ...try a later version 3.14 version

steam works Very Happy

Hi, Phil.

Believe me if you will, but I haven't altered or removed anything from the
"packages-puduan" folder. I followed your instructions and jlst's to a t, and that's
it. Please re-adjust your perspective: I'm a newbie at this but I'm methodical, not
a sorcerer's apprentice. I wouldn't wander off on a tangent with an already difficult
and even overwhelming process.

Thanks for spotting the other shortcomings. Will incorporate.

BFN.

hi musher0,

it can be difficult solving problems over a distance...i just presumed that that's what you did as you said you wanted to remove vlc.

ok then first thing i would do is look in the packages-deb-puduan folder and see if vlc is there. if it isn't, then the 1download script or the download packages tab needs to be run... this should hopefully also get all the missing stuff. you'll then need to rebuild all the packages.

if vlc is there .... try just building that and see if there are any errors.. note that there's more stuff missing than vlc so all packages should be rebuilt.

if it was me ... i would rename my my working woofout puduan folder to woofout puduan old... delete the woofce folder. grab the latest woofce and start afresh. nearly all the packages are already downloaded so the whole process won't take long. .... just remember to add the DISTRO_PKG_SPECS & DISTRO_PET_REPOS from the old folder.

as for wget, that is a busybox applet, the PPM needs the proper wget.

good luck Very Happy

Hi.

No offense taken.

I decided to do away with vlc once the woof-CE output was done, AFTER you
suggested that I use checkdeps. Some libs were there, but not the main app...
After awhile of that, I took an editorial decision: to fire vlc! Smile

In any case, this wmx remaster has a working mplayer 1.3 now. I'll leave it at
that. If other people want to follow your advice concerning vlc, that's fine, in due
time we'll have two media players ready for the Puduan!

The real wget and its parade of libs is being built as I'm writing this. I'll make the
whole bunch available as soon as possible, maybe early afternoon (EDT, Ottawa
time), maybe earlier, we'll see how it goes. I'm doing the < make check >
procedure for each one, so it takes the time it takes.

BFN.

this is also what ive planned for fig os, being a fan of mplayer and watching vlc turn into something useless. for so many years, vlc was a shining, shiny thing.

i always thought the santa hat was ridiculous-- no way to turn it off except to recompile? id at least put in a string you could edit to turn it off. but the worst thing about vlc is how its gone from something that can play everything to something that can barely play anything. ive HAD TO use mplayer for years now, just to have something that works. there is a pet for an old vlc (twoflower) that is compatible with fig os-- installs with petget. it doesnt support mp4, h265!

Hello again, Phil and all.

Compiling of these libs and of the real wget went ok.

So here you are:
https://my.pcloud.com/publink/show?code=XZQ8TBZzUjGL6MEYWmNTCH4iQo5J7Yit6ak

Download the above zip file, open it, and install the five pet archives inside it.
They are:
    gmp-611.pet
    gnutls-3414.pet
    libnettle-3.2.pet
    p11-Kit.pet
    wget-118.pet

I installed them on my machine and tried ppm2 with this real wget. I downloaded
a silly xbubbles game through ppm2 in a jiffy! Smile So having no real wget in the
Puppy was the problem. Phil was right!

One thing though: the < make check >`procedure in wget reported that a
"HTTP::Daemon.pm @ INC" was missing, and it caused a number of wget tests to
fail. This is a perl item that this Puduan Puppy doesn't have. Since a real-life
download test was successful, I gather that it is not very important for the ppm2
itself. However perl users may want to know this. (And perhaps come up with
a corrective?
Thanks in advance.)

The other < make check > tests for the other files and libs went ok, AFAICT.

Enjoy! BFN.

@musher0

I applied your PPM fix and was able to install kpat, thanks.

I also have version2013's latest wine pets installed (it takes about 2.5
hours to compile on this pc) and have XBMC-13.2 working with it.

It's working better now Smile

I will give your remaster a try when it's ready, thanks.

the firewall needs some items symlinking from /sbin to /usr/sbin
Code:

ln -s /sbin/ip6tables /usr/sbin/ip6tables
ln -s /sbin/ip6tables-restore /usr/sbin/ip6tables-restore
ln -s /sbin/ip6tables-save /usr/sbin/ip6tables-save
ln -s /sbin/iptables /usr//sbin/iptables
ln -s /sbin/iptables-restore /usr/sbin/iptables-restore
ln -s /sbin/iptables-save /usr/sbin/iptables-save


If anybody is still running this pup here is a script which does the above.
delete the .gz.

Simply run firewall afterwards - fixed.

Here is what guess you would call a slight remaster with GNUIcecat and all the things mentioned like missing wget libs for a fully working wget etc.

Don't get me wrong this Pup was perfect and a work of art from Musher0.
