Thx, but is Puppy Debian compatible?
Can I use apt-get as well?

you can't use apt.
Latest puppy is lucid ubuntu compatible
current debian squeeze debs should work just fine too.

postfs1: That's more or less only if you're not using a relatively recent version of Puppy. I think Puppy's supported installing directly from .deb files (and RPMs?) since Puppy 4.3, or so. (Someone will correct me if I'm wrong, though.)

Subject description: google chrome browser did not install fully on puppy linux (wary)
 

google-chrome browser did not install fully on puppy linux (wary).

although it did install, it did not install fully, no support found for puppy linux (wary).

other distributions gave support for google-chrome but takes too long to compile and there was no promise it would work

Now quite all packages provided by PPM Tahrpup and sons are .deb
If anybody can trim the FAT and release a Pet, much lighter, that would be perfect.
Of course a pet without modifying the Debian package is possible, but of less interest. My opinion. At least one VIP will disagree. The important is that everybody find an agreement, or keep his way of doing
How helpful was Dejan making pets for us ! Merci pour tout ton travail, Lovers of Dpups.

imagine you click an icon on your desktop, and a window pops up with two buttons.

the first button lets you select a .deb file from a file dialog, which it opens into a folder for you.

then you (or anyone) deletes the "fat" from the folder, then you click the other button.

then it takes that folder and makes a .pet.

how easy this is to make happen depends on how much detail you want in the .pet package.

it can call the .pet maker in puppy, or it can try to get the important information from the .deb file automatically.

but puppy has so many tools like this, im surprised if they havent made this already.

About the Fat, i don't mean languages included , that is easy, even for me. I mean these huge libraries joined by Debian, sometime for an application like SSR, you get a Full Debian Exclamation
No, not a full Debian, but 1GB. The poor Puppy will disappear under the load, with its 130MBs
Dear apprends à coder, it yet exists, but an human trim is much more efficient. "le juste nécessaire" as they say in France, and not the gas-oil tank when you need only a jerrycan.

i mean any kind of fat-- extra languages, optional libraries, anything in the .deb package that can be deleted. not just for you to edit but for anyone who can do the trimming.

Well, that wouldn't be hard I guess, I already have script that do it when making packages from compiled binaries. But isn't there an option when installing packages through petget to trim the fat also? There was at least in some ppm versions.

EDIT: I'm thinking about separating bin/nls/doc/dev
