I did some fiddling around.
Did a pfix=ram and made a new savefile.
New file is using the Xfce desktop. So I will move my stuff over there.

No Worries. Thanks for your efforts.

Hi, tazoc. Thanks for this beautiful and well-thought out Pup.

How do I prevent the wine sfs from loading during start up. I don't have any use for it. Will deleting the wine sfs from the 64-515 folder work (I have a frugal install)? Thanks.

Hi @Ragaman

I have never run frugal. There are others in the forum who do, as a matter of course.

But, if my memory serves me correctly, there is a menu item (either in Setup/System) which controls which SFS can/are loaded at boot time.

I assume that you probably installed LightHouse64's Mariner, where you chose the SFSs for your system at boot time.

Hope this helps until someone else is more specific.

Ragaman,

gcmartin is correct in that in frugal installs there is a way that you can choose to load what SFS files you want. The program that will do that is the Bootmanager. You can find it in the Menu under: System > Bootmanager Configure Bootup

However in this specific instance, Its not going to help you. the zWine SFS is hard coded into the startup script inside the initrd. So you're options are A) rebuild your initrd B) delete the zWine SFS.
It'll complain when you boot that its missing, but the system will still boot. But keep in mind that you are missing certain libs from that package, so something else might not run unless you manually install those libs. The zWine SFS package has over 300 libs and symlinks in it.
TazOC will have to chime in to give you more insight if any of those will cause major breakage of other LHP functionality.

Hi ragaman,
If you type lhp pfix=pure64 at the boot menu, (or add pfix=pure64 to the kernel line of grub) then zWine will not be loaded. zWine.sfs includes some 32-bit libs, but if you don't need Wine and run only 64-bit apps it should be fine.

Hope that helps,
TaZoC

Yup we have been. He's working on a really cool piece of software right now. Can't wait for it to be finished. I'm polishing up the next release as well.
I gotta work on something while I wait for the next LHP version. Razz

On another thread, a forum member has posted the need for some assistance as he is trying to use LH64 for the first time. I am expecting his arrival soon, to this thread, and this intends to assist him.

@Pelo
to help you we will probably need a little more information from you. The problem you share, I am not aware of although others may be.But, as you appear to be sharing that you are moving from the 32bit LH503 to the LH64, there are a couple of pieces of information I would ask you to share to expedite assistance. They are
  • Which version of LH64 are you using? (for example 511/512/514/515)
  • Are you running Mariner or base?
  • Are you running your system Live/frugal/fully installed?
  • And, are you running with a SWAP partition? I am going to assume that if your coming from a 32bit system to a new 64 bit system you probably used a SWAP partition in that older system. IF so, please indicate the SWAP partition size.
And, there is a "sys-info" tool that is in the Menu system (taskbar) which will create a file that can be uploaded should we not already know the answer to your issues.

With your description of your problem I'm sure community members will provide easy guidance for you issues.

Here to help

PostPosted: Tue 05 Mar 2013, 13:59    Post_subject: CUPS-PDF
Sub_title: "/usr/lib/cups/backend/pdf-writer failed"
 

Cheers Tazoc and other puppians,
I've been trying to concatenate some pdf files (or pages extracted as single images from a large pdf file) using LH's CUPS-PDF. I get the error message in the subject description, and I can't track down where the problem lies. Actually, I can't recall ever being able to produce a pdf file with LH's cups-pdf - but that may well be just my 'midas touch' for breaking stuff.
I see that there are two files in /usr/lib/cups/backend/ - pdf-writer and pdf-writer.fd, and I've diddled with settings on line 70:
Code:
PUPPY_LINUX=1 #PUPPY_LINUX=`uname -a | grep -ic puppy`  Fatdog uses different host names.

...but no go. In the CUPS printer manager, is there a (ghostscript etc) ppd file that I might include from somewhere you could recommend, that could work around this issue perhaps?
Increasingly, lecturers at my Uni are producing PPT slide documents as single-page PDFs. I want to print these 3 to a page, but there are no options for this in my printer manager (a Lexmark T632, duplex tray). That was the main reason behind my earlier request for PDF-shuffler - can I create a 3-to-a-side PDF file simply? I've stooped to extracting the original pages as images, and compiling with manual cut'n'paste with GIMP etc - Not Fun Sad Any alternative suggestions are most welcome...

@Puppyt: Try using Print to File instead of CUPS-PDF.

Thanks rcrsn51 - that's part of my problem, as I'm using LH's edpfview 0.1.7, and it lacks a 'print to file' option. GIMP can read the PDF as single successive layers or images, but 'print to file' there only returns a blank page. Abiword only retrieves the text from the pdf so no go there. I've just now installed Evince-2.29.92 from the LH Repository... RESULT! Print-to-file (PDF) works a charm, and the print manipulation/manipulation dialogues are extensive. No option for 3 pages a side however - only 2, 4, 6 etc which isn't ideal for the level of detail I need printed.
I'll have to avoid epdfview for anything other than simple viewing. Since my last post I ran a live-CD of Fatdog on the same hardware, and found CUPS-PDF working fine there (its CUPS 1.5.3 I think, whereas in LH-64 beta still on 1.4.6 - would that matter). Could I replace LH's pdf-writer with FD's?
Thanks for your solution, rcrsn51.
