I was wondering about some post that I read today that would have me believe that you can install apps besides the common .pup like .deb .rpm .tar.gz .tar etc using some software tool like Alien, unrpmfull or undeb.

I would like to ask if this is true and what works best?

I also would like to try to get Wine and K3b working.

Yes it is true. What works best? That depends ... on the app, your puppy version, dependencies involved, etc.

Alien isn't particularly useful in puppy, but unrpmfull (contains undeb) and undeb are useful for installing binaries in puppy.

Wine is already available as a dotpet package for most puppy versions.

K3b will only work if you first use the KDE.sfs add-on package. That's a lot of bloat for one program. You might find that Pburn is just as good and a whole lot smaller and easier on your storage space and ram.

Hope that helps.

the best location to download is http://puppylinux.ca/bugs/
because I noticed that the link http://puppylinux.ca/bugs/wine-0.9.58.pet is dead which is the one on that site http://tmxxine.com/wik/wikka.php?wakka=Wine.

I got dependencies...

File /usr/lib/wine/wldap32.dll.so has these missing library files:

libldap_r-2.3.so.0

File /usr/lib/wine/gphoto2.ds.so has these missing library files:

libgphoto2.so.2 libgphoto2_port.so.0

File /usr/lib/wine/wineesd.drv.so has these missing library files:

libesd.so.0

I used to use a Distro that could fix that itself so I don't know where to get the files or anything.

I already have KDE fore the added tools but it is KDELite Razz .

I would like to know how to use unrpmfull and undeb.

Thanks in advanced and thanks fore WinePup.

O and I guess I cant have click able links yet. (Thanks fixed)

This should work, as a direct link, so don't click it if you don't want to start a download.

Yes you can. All you need to do is get the tag right. You have a "/" in front of the leading url tag which is a close url tag. It should go "[url] url goes here [/url]"

Thanks see above on links.

I got the right one and was only noting that its better to look in http://puppylinux.ca/bugs/ then use the link on that old site but yes http://puppylinux.ca/bugs/wine-0.9.60.pet works fore now...

.

Ttuxxx has an unrpm .pet here. Both unrpm & undeb extract their respective archives from the commandline. If you want the linux RollsRoyce archiver, which will handle both rpm & deb, you might consider installing Pkag's peazip .pet in this thread.

I found the http://www.puppylinux.ca/ttuuxxx/index.php?dir=Libs%2F
thing now I would like to know do I save the needed lib to the perspective folder mentioned in the list of dependencies something like /usr/lib/wine?

I haven't messed with much yet so be kind if I sound a bit new/dumb.

PostPosted: Tue 13 May 2008, 22:41    Post_subject: k3b and Puppy 4.00  

k3b works good in Puppy 4.00
1. Install cdrdao
2. Install k3b version 1-.0.4
3. Supply some libs (In rxvt use command k3b to check lib)
4. Now we can use k3b in Puppy 4.00
Please give your comments. Thanks

No worries! After a few weeks messing with puppy you'll be up to speed & a bona-fide puppy pro.

Actually the file you really need to download is libldap_r-2.3.so.0.2.15. The other file is a symlink to this real library file. Save this file to /usr/lib directory. Then you just need to create a symlink. Open a console terminal, (Menu->Utility->Rxvt), and enter the following:

Code:
ln -s /usr/lib/libldap_r-2.3.so.0.2.15 /usr/lib/libldap_r-2.3.so.0


Then, while you've still got the terminal open, type wine, and if any errors are generated let us know.

bash: syntax error near unexpected token `in'

??I did what you asked??

I know I probably typed something incorrectly.

I will probably get it right.

Any idea?

Assuming you've downloaded libldap_r-2.3.so.0.2.15 & saved it to /usr/lib, then just copy & paste the following, into a console terminal, by dragging your mouse over it, right-click & select Copy, then paste by either pressing both mouse buttons, or via Shift + insert keys:

ln -s /usr/lib/libldap_r-2.3.so.0.2.15 /usr/lib/libldap_r-2.3.so.0

I think you may have entered in instead of ln
