PostPosted: Tue 09 Nov 2010, 23:49    Post subject: some components is missing  

I noticed that when I'm converting rpm to pet. It fails because there is component missing or conflicted. When i'm converting deb to pet, the undeb script was not included in this package. It cant to convert deb to pet until you download it. Can you include all the needed scripts in order to run it properly. What I mean is to include some required scripts for this app. (example: undeb is required for conversion so it must included on this pet package)

mistifire, ability to install debs on click is added to all newer puppy versions, so deb2pet is not really needed unless you're running some older puppy. undeb and unrpm are also provided in separate pet (read the main post)

OK, by the way what versions of puppy does the installation of debs and rpms supported? Is it recognizable in Puppy Package manager. What I mean is when you install a deb or rpm file. The list of installed rpm or deb file can be found at PPM? Or do we need another Package manager to handle that kind of package? Is it possible to install a device driver in deb or rpm form in Puppy? Thank you in advance

Yes, puppy versions 5.x, dpup/squeeze pup and I think even quirky, really any of newer pups handles installation of debs through PPM.

You may want to be careful not to mismatch your kernel version though. If a .deb for a kernel module is for kernel 2.6.27.X it may not work with a 2.6.3X.X puppy kernel and _may_ not even end up at the right place in /lib/modules unless there is a wrapper that I am unaware of.

can you explain the difference between these scripts and alien2puppy?

is one better then the other?

also with alien2puppy you ha to put the dependencies in the same directory as the deb you wanted to convert and it would put them into one pet if i read correctly, does this one have to do that?

Technosaurus, im notice that compiling device drivers is compiling the kernel, Is there any way to compile a device driver without compiling a new kernel?

Dejan, does the PPM can upgrade and downgrade installed packages in PPM?

Subject description: Cannot run Chrome as root
 

Got the pet and works great! Thanks!

I get an error message cannot run chrome as root. I cannot get the code in the right place (after looking at a few Ubuntu posts). So I have been running "google-chrome --user-data-dir" in terminal, to run chrome.

Thanks to this idea. I modified the script in order to convert SliTaz Packages to PET packages.

I might be wrong but it seems this application does not make a proper pet.specs file in the pet package. This may not be an issue for the individual PPM but it certainly made a mess out of files that I was adding to WOOF.

Dejan, are you still around? It's been a long time.......

Best,

"mistifire, ability to install debs on click is added to all newer puppy versions, so deb2pet is not really needed unless you're running some older puppy. undeb and unrpm are also provided in separate pet (read the main post) "
Well , its not the same install a debian package and to get a pet of it, after having trimmed the fat.
Dejan you explained us in the past that it was not an easy task.. to make fit Debian package just what is needed by our light but speedy Puppies.
Why should the Puppy ISO be so thin if no trim is done when downloading applications ? We have to keep the Puppy philosophy, To keep Puppy a really serious challenger for light Lubuntus (they try to imitate Puppy, jealous of its efficiency)
Deb2pet pet downloaded 11000 times : isn'it a proof that it's useful ?
I am working (hard) on exile (jukebox) to get it working on newest Puppies. I had already many contents available in my tool case.. To get Python running at the good place in Puppy needs to change debian structure ! Because Puppy is not Debian (God bless it !)

I'm definitely still around, I follow what's happening sometimes or log in occasionally, but not that active in development anymore. Smile
pet specs changed since then, not sure if it was correct even back then, the contents of the pet were more important to me.
11000 times? Shocked Wow. Proof that even small scripts with few lines of code can be usefull. Especially back then when less stuff was supported and automated.

Newbies bless you, dejan555.
Even it it was easy for you to make these tiny pets, there are so useful.
People that tell us 'just click on deb package', should try, they shall have dissappointing results, sometimes, but sometimes is quite often.
In fact they suppose all is running well. That does not run better than woof Ce for our Puppy Builders students. .
XenialDog is not a Puppy, but is taking advantage just for easy downloading by newbies, if they are any.
