tombh/Pizzasgood/anyone else vaguely interested

I was just following my nose from cb88s sourceforge repo link, and found this set of gems, particularly useful IMHO, are paco & Unetbootin - but this is a first page, so probably loads more for the intrepid explorer
[fog might suit many people trying to rescue windoze boxes]

Hi Tom,

Interesting project y'all have going here. I noticed, however, when you had to
change the name from "Fetch" to "Petch" and you remarked on it Tom you'd
said how where it began with "P" it fit in nicely with all the other small Puppy
programmes, right? Well... I've been seeing Lobster talking A LOT about this
all around the forum ("Petch") and how he would like to see it included into 4.2.
When I found out that it dealt with programmes, sort of like "apt-get" in a small
way I thought, "How cool can this be?! A programme named 'Pet Check' that
looks for files on the repos and installs them!"

And this is what I thought "Petch" was all about! "Pet Check"!

LOL!

BTW: I heartily agree with Trapster's idea about this finding those libfiles we're
always missing. If there were some way, somehow, that it could tap into Ttuuxx's
libfile library, coded to search just there for libfiles, and we somehow help
him out by sending him loads of unusual libs? I don't know how that could be done?

I've got to install this into both my frugal 4.1 and HDD 4.0 and take it for a walk.
Thanks folks!

Amicalement/Cheers!

Is this something that someone could be adapted to a browser interface? I would try and add it to the Puppy Web Desktop but I don't I know enough to make the necessary mods (at least not yet) nor do I know whether or not servage has perl setup yet so I could make a hack at it

The equivalent web interface is available here:
http://puppylinux.org/home/search

Select software from the drop down menu and search for the one you want.

As a user, maddox, I am quite happy to use petch to search and install packages.

Work is being done behind the scenes and I think it's better to have them concentrate and take us by surprise.
I am quite patient for the moment. Wink

I did send John a reminder, but haven't heard anything from him. Disappointing.

@prit thanks for that info - Aitch pointed it out to me earlier but for some reason it didn't seem that they were the same thing. I will soon add it to the Puppy Web Desktop

So cool tombh! Looking forward to trying it out. I've been hoping someone would start implementing better package management in puppy, awesome first steps.

From what I've seen thus far with Petch, I am impressed. I think that if anyone were to remaster one of the CLI puplets, this would be a good program to include. True, its usefulness may be limited to those applications that don't require X, but that should be too big of an issue.
