PostPosted: Fri 08 Jul 2011, 06:19    Post subject: Python applications running on Drake
Subject description: nice to have: openGL
 

Hi Barry,
again many thanks for this Puppy !
Have browsed across the Mageia repo's;
I have found there a lot of Python archives and modules; and of course could not resist to get a try ...:
- loaded Python 2.7 + proposed dependencies

So I tested some python dependent programs which seems running well.
(i.e. GanttPV /scheduling software; GNU Solfege /music education - needs timidity + pyalsa to get sound; PyCAD /light graphic application)

Just has to copy the requested modules from /usr/share/pyshared into /usr/lib/python2.X/site-packages to get the modules recognized through the command
Code:

#python
...blablibla
>>import RequestedModule
>>

I am not that much experienced with programming, well it although seems to me easier to get Python applications running on Drake than on other Puppies ( maybe am I wrong by leak of knowledge ... ? ).

So this Drake seems to me an interessant startpoint for running Python apps.

Applications (i.e. for example LinuxCad ) require some python modules + OpenGl. As Drake runs Vesa till now, I could not test LinuxCad.

Hope there will be some video improvements in the future Drake versions.

Cheers from Belgium !
Charlie

Drapu is missing a CUPS file. Without this filter, certain applications cannot print. It is contained in the attached PET.

Also, the file /etc/cups/snmp.conf needs to be world-readable in order to detect network printers.

Please provide some feedback as to whether or not this resolves any printing problems.

Turns out that the default for mksquashfs in Drake is xz compression, but /usr/sbin/filemnt doesn't want to mount and open xz compressed SFS's. I can set the gzip parameter for mksquashfs on command line and can modify dir2sfs to use gzip but some of my (and other's) other scripts also need reworking. I took the lazy way out and copied and renamed mksquashfs4 from Lucid 525. Works a treat!

With service_pack_drake-0.1-2.pet PPM works very nicely. A huge selection of stuff. I installed libmesaglu1-7.10.2-4.mga1.i586.rpm (191 Kb) and am able to run GoogleEarth-6.0.3.2197-i386 with no problems even with the vesa driver.

Printer, sound, video, autoconnect, everything is working great! Very Happy

Code:
VIDEO REPORT: Drake Puppy, version 0.1

Chip description:
oem: Intel(r)Grantsdale-G Graphics Chip Accelerated VGA BIOS
product: Intel(r)Grantsdale-G Graphics Controller Hardware Version 0.0

Driver used by Xorg:
vesa

Video mode used by Xorg:
Resolution:  Depth 24  Depth: "Display"


Note: I also exited to prompt and ran Xorgwizard to setup the intel video driver, works equally well.

Thanks for this Barry, I think this may become my "default Puppy". Cool

Sorry for the delay in responding to your post. I have sent you a pm.

That was the mageia package. I am now using my own squashfs-tools4 pet package, which, if I recall rightly, I configured not to default to xz compression.

Thanks for the report. I needed to fix the 'gettext' template in Woof.

Also, the 'libintl8' package had to be installed. This is actually part of the original gettext package, but Mageia, along with Debian (etc.) have the habit of splitting packages up into lots of little ones.

Cannot connect to wireless AP using NetworkWizard.
(Card: Broadcom BCM4318, WEP encription).
Network wizard's library (wag-profiles) has a function: useIwconfig. This
function uses iwconfig for configuring wireless card.
Iwconfig sets parameters of card (mode,key,ESSID,etc..)
The ESSID must be last parameter set by this function. When I changed this order, connection was made without any problem.

I presume that you mean Dougal's Network Wizard, not Simple Network Setup?

(I call it Dougal's Wizard because he put a lot of effort into it, but actually many people contributed)

But, I don't know who is maintaining dougal's Wizard these days. anyone in the Lucid Puppy team?

I am maintaining SNS, after a fashion -- meaning occasionally.

Yes, I mean Dougal's Network Wizard (net-setup.sh).

Maybe. I never played with Lucid Puppy so don't know it's maintainers.

I think it would if the right squash version is not used.

file
will tell you the version of the sfs you are using, see example below

file lupu_devx_520.sfs


Here is your output

lupu_devx_520.sfs: Squashfs filesystem, little endian, version 4.0

Lupu 5.20 includes 3 mksquashfs tools. mksquashfs mksquashfs3 mksquashfs4

With Lupu 5.20, as an example of the Puppy I'm running, version 4 works. Therefore, when I make a squashfs, I use version 4 because it is known to work, and it does.

Subject description: version 03
 

I did a manual frugal install of drake03.
I installed devx + kernel source sfs + NVIDIA-Linux-x86-275.21.run
When the nvidia driver was compiling it gave an error message about a
gcc version mismatch but it compiled and is working well.
I installed vlc 1.1.9 from the ppm and it won't run as root but starting it
from gexec with "su -c vlc spot" works.
Sound and wired network working fine.
I tried a hd 1080p video at youtube.com and it played perfectly at full
screen.
Drake03 is working well so far on this pc.
