Hi Joe,

I've not been successful installing Bibletime to Fatdog. I don't know if there is a 64-bit version for you to try compiling. I recommend that you consider theWord, a Windows program which IMHO is the best free Bible software available. With Fatdog, I personally use Windows versions of BibleAnalyzer, eSword, and theWord. The only reason I keep eSword is that is has a purchased NASB version which is one of my favorites.

Regards,
Jim


Hey Jim,

I downloaded installed 'The Word' and the 'ESV' module per your instructions, as well as the pet that you created. Rock solid! Thank you very much! God bless!

Regards,
Joe

I've uploaded a pet for Bibletime-2.8.1 to the Fatdog64 repo. It has a couple of bug fixes patched in. It requires the qt4, clucene, and sword packages install. Please note the the qt4 package requires a reboot. Also, I haven't tested this much.

Hi Kirk,

Thank you for providing us Bibletime 2,8.1 for Fatdog 64. It's working great and provides another fine tool for sharing and studying God's word.

Thanks again,
Jim

@all Kirk's pet packages are here.

Thanks Kirk! Just installed the four pets:
sword-092111
qt4-4.6.1
clucene-0.9.21b
bibletime-2.8.1

BibleTime does open up. However when I click on the 'Install Works' button and the 'Bookshelf Manager' windows pops open, I am not able to remotely connect to the ftp.crosswire.org site to automatically download texts. However I manually copied the necessary modules and *.conf files and I've got what I need.

I'm really getting spoiled with the awesome support for Fatdog64, keep up the good work!

Hi Kirk

I have the same problem that joe0855 reported. Fatdog's Bibletime is working great except for the "Bookshelf Manager" which cannot connect to remote sites to download resources.

Although, if a user has access to Sword files the necessary modules and *.conf files can be copied over or linked and the program works fine. It still provides another fine tool for sharing and studying God's word.

In my case I did not try the "Bookshelf Manager" until I saw joe0855's problem report. I keep a separate Sword directory in /mnt/home and have a relative link to /mnt/home/Sword in /usr/share. This allows the Sword modules to be accessed by other pups and there is no need to download the modules multiple times since they may be linked or copied as needed.

Thanks again for this fine resource,
Jim

What highjack? You've just informed us of another recent distribution that supports Bibletime, that's very pertinent information and those that have recent 64 bit hardware should appreciate the information.

Your QT4 fix for the above mentioned Boot Manager problem works great. Now the program is completely operational as well as being the latest version.

Thank you for supporting Bibletime with your Fatdog 64.

Subject description: Dpup Exprimo
 

Dpup Exprimo, pemasu's great puplet now has support for the CrossWire Bible Society's Linux Bibletime version 2.9.1. It already worked great with the Wine programs, Bible Analyzer, e-Sword, and theWord, now it's more complete.

Get it here.
Download the needed clucene, sword and bibletime pets. Qt4-4.8.0 libs is also required....basic or essentials are ok. After installing the above programs you must reboot in order for QT-4 to work properly.

Thank you pemasu for supporting Bibletime,
Jim

Subject description: Saluki
 

Saluki is a woof-build based on Racy with Xfce. The suggested target hardware is computers less than 5 years old. It should run tolerably fast on older machines and netbooks and older machines, but Xfce does need a bit more cpu than the standard ROX/Jwm puppy. The principle developer, jemimah is developing an amazing puplet that continues to improve. It's fast and stable and now has support for Crosswire Bible Societie's Linux Bibletime program. All that's necessary to install Bibletime is to use the Puppy Package Manager. It also runs Wine and I've found that the Windows version of Bible Analyzer, e-Sword and theWord work well on it.

A very valuable feature of the new Saluki is a "saluki custom puplet builder" that makes it simple to customize the puplet and create a new iso. It's much easier to use than puppy's normal remastering program.

Thank you jemimah for providing this.

Pemasu's Bibletime implementation prepared for Exprimo works fine in his new Upup Precise 5.3.3.3. Very Happy

So far Precise is looking great. Give it a try.

Cheers,
Jim

PostPosted: Mon 30 Apr 2012, 12:13    Post subject: FATSlacko  

01micko has released FATSlacko which is
Quote:
NOT an official product but a puplet. It is directly based on the upcoming Slacko-5.3.3. It is also the PAE version which will see your large RAM and as such is recommended for higher end machines.

It is Slacko with extras:
    Libreoffice
    Java Runtime Environment
    Mesa (aka xorg_high)
    QT Libraries
    VLC
    Foxit Reader
    Samba with kerberos support
    Inetd daemon for Samba documentation

Minimum system requirements <-- Pentium III 1 GHz processor, 768 MB RAM.

Recommended <-- 1.5 GHz processor, 1 GB RAM

01micko has also provided Bibletime-2.9.1s which may be installed using the PPM so it picks up all dependencies. Recommend that for now you use ibiblio for everything but clucene. For it use the automatically suggested mirror.

FATSlacko makes a super Bible study system. it also runs favorite Windows programs under Wine: Bible Analyzer, e-Sword, and the Word.

This is a great choice for anyone with high end hardware.

Subject description: Problems
 

I downloaded the Bibletime-2.9.2-s.pet from http://distro.ibiblio.org/pub/linux/distributions/puppylinux/pet_packages-slacko/ and install it with the pet package at download. It would not open up. So I downloaded the Lucid version 2.7.2 version and installed it after removing the first one.
I am using FATSlacko and did not check in PPM for one.
This one is working ok and I think this is one of the best programs there is for Puppy. I would to beable to to install the AA Book are AA Bible we call it.

Hi l2ulinux,

Along with the Bibletime pet you needed to download additional required dependencies, sword (at ibiblio), and clucene from the official slackware repo using PPM. FATSlacko already has QT. If you did, it should have worked. I believe that Lucid's Bibletime 2.7.2 had the necessary dependencies built into the pet or sfs which is why it worked.

However, with FATSlacko, you are better off using the PPM and the ibiblio repository because it will automatically pick up the dependencies.

You may want to try again using PPM and report your results.

Since you have Bibletime 2.7.2 working, you will need to rename /usr/share/sword directory ie: 1sword. After PPM completes the installation, delete the new /usr/share/sword directory and restore your original. Then you won't have to download modules a second time.

Regards,
Jim

PostPosted: Sun 08 Jul 2012, 16:29    Post subject: Fatdog64-600  

Kirk and Jamesbond have released their latest Fatdog64-600 which is extremely fast and supports the latest linux Bibletime as well as Windows programs Bible Analyzer, e-Sword, and theWord. If you have 64-bit hardware, give this a try. It's the best available and there is a good selection of software available for it.

Try it, you will love it.

Thanks again to Kirk and Jamesbond for providing such great support for Bibletime and other Bible study software.

In His Name,
Jim
