Hi,

I have the pet install for erlang at the mo (R14.B04)

http://www.erlang.org/download.html

Is it possible to get the latest version (R16.B01)? For Precise puppy 5.6.1?

Or if someone could point me in the direction on how to make the pet I will have a go myself.

Some might see from my earlier posts as long as it was on a window licker level (forgive me I am originally from Portland via Somerset Laughing ) that I could understand it would be great as I can go off and make some updated pets for other apps for this great distro Razz

Sure. You want the 'pkg' for Ubuntu 12.04.

Thanks Semme! Will download it now.

For anyone reading this thats curious on how to do it, (well windowlicker friendly.)

First potential Gotcha, even if you have a multi-core system your still going to need the 32bit package. (Yes I made this mistake before with VirtualBox. Laughing )

That said if you have a 64 bit puppy, go for the 64 bit package. (or if some time in the future precise puppy gets a 64bit release Razz then forshauuwwa:- disregard the above statement.)

How to download:


Go to Terminal.

Go to your destination drive of choice

make a folder


mkdir ERLANG # You could call it anything.. spongebob, NotCobol.. the possibilities are only limited by your imagination.

cd ERLANG
# or whatever you decided to call it...

wget https://elearning.erlang-solutions.com/couchdb//rbingen_adapter//package_R16B01_precise32_1371576318/esl-erlang_16.b.1-1~ubuntu~precise_i386.deb --no--check--certificate

There and relax... (or if you are on a connection like mine, make a cup of tea.)

Once the package is downloaded,

type


rox #Ok, I admit I couldn't figure out how to do it from the command line. If anyone could tell me I would be great-full Wink .

now click on

esl-erlang_16.b.1-1-ubuntu~precise_i386.deb

Follow the package manager instructions,

Wait a while,

Go back to the terminal window & type

erl

And rejoice at the updated goodness of R16B01 Very Happy [/b]

You can use 'petget pkg_name' but, no- Pup isn't built with a cmdline pacman.

Yea I wished there was an apt_get type function.

I use wget all the time for stuff, its great. It reminds me of Dos, sure its hard to learn at first but once you learn it its faster than the GUI. Plus you have a force multiplier/leverage when it comes to writing scripts. You already know the commands.

Lot of rage quits must occur when people follow a linux command line and it doesn't work in puppy.

I am guessing there must have been a design theology issue with this for it not to be present.

Need to keep in mind other distros are 1) multi-user and 2) lots bigger.. bigger cause they include LOTS of libs.

Think of Pup as an underdog lightweight among heavyweights. Small, fast, capable. Master of your own ship!

You mean 1.23? Supposedly has support for Erlang. Perhaps you need a plugins pkg?

Is this from 1.23 alone or with the addition of those plugins?

Thats with all the plugins loaded. I think its because Erlang is a tad obscure its not got the largest of user bases. I bet if I had a go at a python script it would be a lazer light show haha.

its a nice IDE, checks my terrible spelling now so its all good.

I don't have the side panel or the lower window open at the moment.
