Downloader for Puppy Unleashed 1.0.2 - ver 0.0.2

edit: 24/08/2006 attachment deleted

[edit: new bug fix version]

this version also downloads and runs expandtarballs.sh

this puts a downloader program in my-documents
copy it to the dir you want to download Unleashed to
click it to download Unleashed

downloads all the files automatically
checks the md5sums so you are sure it downloaded ok

(actually, you would be sure that the files you download are identical to the files i have on my drive ... which may not be what Barry has on his drive ... an official md5sum file for the packages would be nice)

basically, just click the program to download Unleashed

Smile
Dotpups seem to appear in the last directory I saved to - as they are going to be deleted should they not appear and dissapear in my-roxapps by default?

Dotpups seem to be one of the most popular pup features and I am glad to see that they will be eventually integrated into Puppy and the Pupget installer.

I tried to install hbasic and gambas (no problem with xbasic) on my system and just know it should be a dotpup away . . .

The problem is Hbasic needs the troltech QT - so may not be suitable for Puppy?

My feeling is the Shell is a kind of Basic programming without a GUI front end
and [better stop before completely off topic]

Embarassed

most normal non-Crustaceans would probably download the dotpup file somewhere, maybe my-documents, and click it

after it's finished, they can delete it, where ever it is, or they might keep it to reinstall later ... or because clicking the dotpup again often uninstalls it

you can also Open With rox and run the dotpup directly from the internet, instead of downloading it (well, it gets downloaded to /tmp)

Top for Puppy 1.0.2

Busybox's top doesn't seem to work with the 2.6 kernel

this installs top in /usr/bin
(this package does not register with PupGet, so if you upgrade, the top should be automatically uninstalled)
it also installs a library file (libproc.so) in my-applications/lib

undeb, unrpm - package extraction utilities

2 command line utilities that can extract the files from rpm and deb packages

Puppy has dpkg-deb, but it doesn't seem to work properly
so this puts a dpkg-deb binary in my-applicaions/bin, renamed to dpkg-deb2

useage:

unrpm file.rpm
undeb file.deb

(Edit: this version of unrpm uses busybox's rpm2cpio, which sometimes does not work ... the full version of unrpm should work if this one does not)

Cool

I feel that this is quite important but am not quite sure . . .? Embarassed

Does this enable us to instigate a testing program for the huge file depository of rpm and debian files for possible inclusion in pupget?

Perhaps we should start a wiki page of packages known to work under Puppy?

Thanks GuestToo Cool

a package management system is: packages ... made especially for a particular flavour os

because they are specially made to work in a particular distro, they may not work well (or at all) in another distro

what a lot of people do not seem to realize, is that 90% ... more like 99% ... of the package management system is ... the packages

in other words, if you want to setup a package management system for Puppy ... you need to put packages on a server somewhere

you really can't use another package manager's packages directly

there are attempts to make more universal package systems

some distros that are based on, for example, Debian, can use the Debian package management system ... but that's because, the distro basically is Debian

if you unzip rpm or deb packages, you usually get dirs and files that would go in /usr ... it might just work to extract the files to /usr, but probably you will need to mess with it a bit to get it to work (maybe find library files it needs, set up menus, config files ...)

unrpm and undeb are just simple unzip programs, not an installer
