I've managed to get Clementine to build. It is now available in the PPM - 11MB, mostly static.

I don't think there's a recent binary version of chromium that will run on racy/wary and they make it so difficult to compile that I won't even attempt it.


Iron has a linux version that I've been testing in Exprimo. (no compiling neccessary). It gives error messages in the terminal but still runs okay (so far).

Apparently the newer Chromium-type browsers need Glibc-2.11.
I have no idea what it takes to update to that version...I imagine a lot of compiling. There is a deb for it somewhere at debian.org, but me-thinks that installing the .deb file is not the proper way to do it.

EDIT: I was curious and did some googling on Glibc and came across this webpage.
I am not very familiar with backend stuff, so I am not sure if this is the method needed to update glibc in Puppy Linux.

I think I'm the only one on puppy that successively updated glibc actually I did it twice on 2.14X, the way I did it was I made system-links to the older version numbers of all the libs and updated the devx.
It was actually pretty easy. once you updated it then just build the sfs and make a iso Smile

I've done it and also I think sc0ttman has done it. I'm not sure I want to do it for saluki though. I'm trying to keep things clean.

- I need the ATI crystal graphic driver . . . [hint to our compilers]



Install the devx and kernel source sfs.
Go to http://support.amd.com/us/gpudownload/Pages/index.aspx
Download the driver for your card.
Open the terminal and run the amd-driver-installer-12-1-x86.x86_64.run
driver:
sh amd-driver-installer-12-1-x86.x86_64.run

When it is finished do the command:
aticonfig --initial

Exit the terminal and reboot.

It even worked on my imac Smile



ive done all the above but i dont get the ati driver to work.
The installer from ATI starts ( the grafik UI ) It seams to install
fine. but after reboot all windows are "jagging/ stuttering" when moved. and there is no Ati control panel. I guess the driver did not load and some
default Vesa driver is active. what did i do wrong ? and how can i correct it / go back to the last good drivers.

i have with done this before with slacko puppy and i know this works with .pet packages to LHP64 and 528 lucid puppy. the PC is a HP Dragon HDX9050 with a Radeon HD2600. its my main Saluki machine Smile

And oh this is a furgal install

thanks for all help

Anyone for Eudora?!
Just for kicks tried to install a FULL onto a regular IDE HD mounted in a (trans)portable USB box. Removed drive and tried to boot from a regualr setup (initially because most older boards cannot do an USB boot). It sort of worked, files, etc, even started to boot with some strange messages but eventually KP. Didn't expect anything better, but adds to the Dept of Useless Info.

Run SFS-load on-the-fly and make sure both the devx and kernel source
sfs files are loaded, (see screenshot)
If they are loaded quit SFS-load on-the-fly and open the terminal.
Try installing the proprietary driver again with the command:

sh amd-driver-installer-12-1-x86.x86_64.run --force

When the driver is finished installing enter the command:

aticonfig --initial

Then exit the terminal and reboot.

I thought I'd try Google-earth, previous attempts at running this have been a dismal failure, still seems to have a problem with fonts, it is totally unusable.

Does anybody have a fix for this, it's impossible to read anything to make any kind of change, I'm using a nvidia geforce 8600 gt, which works fine with anything else. Confused

xz compression in the SFSs brakes possible backwards compatibility (older kernels) and taxes the CPU of older hardware with minimal bandwidth/size gains.
May be could be avoided.
