Regarding my blog post about booting Win10 off a usb-stick, and not working because it a udf filesystem in the iso:

https://bkhome.org/news/202006/how-to-boot-win10-from-a-usb-stick.html


Very useful post for those that have to use W10 on occasion. Using linux to fix windows is of course, the right way to do it!

Now that you have a fresh install of W10, is there an easy way, (with linux, of course) to make an iso image of that install to keep handy on a usb stick? So that one does not have to go thru so much effort in the future?
Or better still, how to back up a factory new W10 install with linux on a usb stick so that one does not have to depend on the recovery partition or redownload etc.
It would make your mini tutorial complete.

Hi All!

Please help me! How can I install wine and which version fits easy OS 2.3.1.

I tried old pet packs that I used on other Puppy, but they didn’t work.

Thanks

I'd be surprised if none of the new versions you'll find on this thread wouldn't work. http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=725128#725128.

But first: Is EasyOS a 64-bit system? If so, to run any 32-bit wine you first have to load/install a 32-bit compatibility sfs/pet. Does EasyOS have one? Then, after installing/loading you have to open a terminal and type --without the quotes-- "ldconfig". The first letter is a small "L". After doing that it will take a while for a 32-bit environment to be created. It is almost as large as a Puppy. If your terminal prompt appears instantly, something went wrong. Type the command again. And a reboot may be needed after it takes.

I don't have an EasyOS; never set one up. So I can't test. But if I'm not mistaken EasyOS functions more like a Full install than a Frugal. If that's the case, trying things randomly can pose the problem of how to undo them. So, let me suggest the Portable Wine version 3.3_v2.1 which you can download from here, http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=989245#989245. It downloads as a tar.gz which you unpack (UExtract if EasyOs has it). Move the extracted folder where ever may be convenient: /mnt/home is recommended. Rename the extracted folder just "wine-portable" without trailing version number: that makes it easier to create individual menu entries if your want to. When installed, it will create several menu entries. The one named Wine Windows Program Loader presents a GUI for all the Windows applications you install; i.e. not Windows portables which don't install to C:. Windows programs --such as Wine Config-- show up on the Utilities Menu.
Under most Puppies, if you Right-Click the Wine-portable folder there'll be a "Register" listing on the Popup Menu. Under others, you enter the folder and Left-Click the script named "Register". What that does is install several bash-scripts, some icons and the Menu entries: that rather than the 100s of files of a 'regular' wine. Wine-portable is actually an external rox-app. So while it installs like a pet (PPM Uninstall to remove it) it is powered by a Self-Contained SFS. If it doesn't work, uninstalling provides little chance of braking anything.

Remember, with either wine or wine-portable, before you can do anything else you have to configure it. Under wine the terminal command is wine "wine winecfg". Under Wine-portable the command is "wine.sh winecfg". I'm pretty sure that under Wine-portable trying to start your first windows program will trigger winecfg. But starting with the command can't hurt. Or use its Menu entry.

Last suggestion: you should have an internet connection functioning when you start: wine/wine-portable will want to download mono and gecko.

Suggest to install wine from petget in your easy0s. Wink

Smile thanks L18L
I started with petget, but there are only playonlinux and winetricks packages in the package manager. Of course, I updated the database in the first round. Only then did I use the old files.
In the meantime, I went through what mikeslr wrote and couldn't find a 32/64 bit compatible file.
If I understand correctly, is it possible to install wine in the built-in container (racy, buster, xenial) in easyOS?
Thanks for the comments Smile

Did you try playonlinux? My recollection is that it is a robust wine management system. Once installed, playonlinux will, itself, both provide the 32-bit compatibility layer AND download wine versions. But, that could be a false memory; or one derived from Linux Mint.

Winetricks is actually a Linux application mostly for installing 'goodies' into the alien-to-Linux Wine-file-structure.

let petget search in all repositories
select wine64 for install (and dependancies)

good luck

edit: hope you made some progress. Sorry that I cannot help more with wine, just 1 hint: executable file is under /usr/lib/wine/...

PostPosted: Sun 21 Jun 2020, 02:04    Post subject: Missing pmcputemp.pet  

To Barry,
Following your blog, in EasyOS, I tried downloading pmcputemp.pet to
first "Personal" and then "Downloads" and after two days of searching
the Home and many other directories, I can't find either of the two pets.
Can you help by telling me where they are please.
Also there is no led on that particular Cruzer Blade stick.
I am limited to buying whatever is locally available.

By comparison, finding and installing pmcputemp.pet in
EasyPup 2.3.1 was a complete success.
The tiny led stopped flashing after bootup and didn't do any writes
at all thereafter, so that stick should last a bit longer.
Thanks.

@ Rodney Byne

Hi Rodney,

did you try to find the 'missed' pet via pFind in the Filesystem-Menu?

This might be quite an easy way to spot it.

kind regards

EDIT:

Running EasyOS 2.3.1, I just tried to download and install the pmpcutemp-1.1-buster64.pet and was able to do so without any problems. The pet was saved to /home/downloads

hope this information is useful to you

regards

Subject description: function
 

@ Barry,

Hi Barry,

Thank you for paying attention to 'latent' writes on drives during a computer's 'inactivity' which might reduce the durability of flash-sticks.

How necessary is pmcputemp? Does it simply display the cpu-temperature or also regulate the fan-speed?

If I recall a previous (quite long ago) post of Sage correctly, the information about the cpu-temperature in the applet-try is imprecise and possibly misleading.

So, what about getting rid of pmpcutemp or offering the option to do so for those who can do without it and prefer an increased durability of their flash-sticks?

kind regards

Hi to lp-dolittle.

Thanks for your help.

Yes, pFind was useful, because it also couldn't
initially find the missing pet.

However, for me at least the answer was NOT
to use a browser inside a container.

Using WWW from the top row of icons gave a
faultless download to /home/personal which is
where I wanted to store it.

When I again used pFind, the screen was filled with
locations from the original and the .pet sources,
so all is now well.
Best regards.

I’m new to easyOS but I like the concept. My question is whether there will be an easy way to compile a newer kernel for example 5.7.4
Thanks
