Tried without loading my slacko save first, didn't work.

Desura logs in so I think the internet connection should be fine, and my graphics is integrated- Intel(mesa installed).

I think what it is is that Desura(thanks to chromium implementation) doesn't run as root.

wierd how it's fine for me......

a way to test your theory is to copy the desura folder to /root/spot/

then open a terminal and type
Code:
su spot

then
Code:
cd /root/spot/desura
./desura
(not sure that path's correct but you get the picture)

this should run desura as spot

That seemed to work- I got the loading dot-circle thing and my processor ramped up.

Unfortunately it put such a load on my system that after 4-5min I just pressed ctrl+alt+backspace.

Maybe if I get more ram(512MB right now) or some time when the weather cools off(don't want my processor fan to melt - I'm in Texas lol) I'll try again sometime.

Thanks 666philb!

That is weird. I have slacko and I don't have that problem. I just can't run games. It works on 5.28 but not on slacko. What version of slacko are you using?

5.3.1

Does the desura console show any errors etc?

It might work for me if I leave it for a while, but it totally bogged down my system at the loading dot-circle thing. But running as root, it wouldn't even get that far- just the blank screen.

I think you should learn the difference between the word "no" and the word "now".

I won't be going to slacko 5.3.3 because the kernel was compiled without bluetooth modules.

If I can't use my bluetooth keyboard/touchpad 5.3.3 is trash in my opinion..

Sorry just a typo. I meant to say 'no'.

666philb: I got direct rendering working. Some of the games still won't work. When I try to run them, The resolution changes and freezes.I do have other that run flawless.

SDL is difficult to oversight. There are several SDL_* subpackages .

For SDL_* source and binaries look here :http://ftp.gwdg.de/pub/linux/slackware/slackware-12.1/source/l/sdl/
Just move up the directories to see slackware-13.x entries.

I have run the installer but am to shy to sign in :

how did you build this?

it comes with build_desura.sh script for install

do you have to install first and manually collect the files to package or is there a way to new2dir

It was compiled the same way as all puppy packages. Install devx and download the source code of the program and find one of the tutorial/how-to posts on compiling.

If you need help finding that information, search with this:

@666PHILIB,

how did you BUILD this?

thinkin of COMPILING it for another puppy distro

the SOURCE comes with no ./configure and the build_desura.sh script instead

i want to make sure to PACKAGE it via new2dir without having all the files automatically installed on my system first

hi Anniekin,

desura doesn't need compiling, the script is an official install script which downloads desura to the folder that you run the script in.

you could make a .pet of the folder after the script is run and desura is downloaded, the problem is though that the desura folder gets huge when you start installing games, and it really needs to be installed somewhere outside the savefile, like /mnt/home ... full installs don't have this location though!!
