01micko,

I think there is a problem still with the Puppy repositories. I know you recently worked on issues with the Lucid Puppy repositories, but there still seems to be problems.

Not sure if it is with all of the Puppy repositories, but here is one I tried for Slacko.
http://ftp.nluug.nl/ibiblio/distributions/puppylinux/pet_packages-slacko14.1/

I downloaded a pet package from here.
Saved it to my hard drive.
Clicked on pet package to install.
Started the install and got error message package will not install.

666phiib says he had to do this to get it to work.

PostPosted: Sun 27 Jul 2014, 21:29    Post subject: ydrv_slacko_5.9.3.7  

EDIT: There is ydrv_slacko_5.9.3.8:
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=791433#791433

We are awaiting next release slacko-5.9.4, but at this point of time, I made a collection of recent fixes against slacko-5.9.3.
Updated vmlinuz and initrd.gz is available in the slacko-5.9.3.6: http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=787817#787817

HOW TO USE
Rename the file ydrv_slacko_5.9.3.7.sfs to 'ydrv_slacko_5.9.3.sfs', and place it where the slacko-5.9.3 is installed.
The base Puppy can be slacko-5.9.3 or slacko-5.9.3.6.

WHATS NEW (from the original 5.9.3)
1. seve-to-directory fix (df matter)
2. All the extra SFS (exept main,zdrv,adrv and ydrv) are totally handled by the sfs_load to avoid long wait at boot with the message 'next boot will be faster'.
3. Some tweaks to speed up at boot and at install/uninstall packages
4. ntfs permission to be 755. But it depends on the initramfs when the ntfs is /mnt/home.
5. pup_event bug fixes
6. New installers.

USED PACKAGES
Note: Not all the files in PET are in the SFS. Some files in the SFS are not from the packages on this list.

That is a really strange one!
If you use PPM (download only) or just "wget URL" or "curl -O URL" to download a package, works just fine.
However, if you download through Firefox (or Midori) the downloaded pet has different md5sum than the one you get with wget! So somehow downloading via the browser you get a corrupted pet.
More important the md5sum of the internal tarball of the pet is different than the one added to the pet file by dir2pet so pet2tgz catches that and bails out!
Confused

Bottom line, wget or curl your pets for now. (or use the download only option of PPM)

Latter: Tried download via browser or curl on a Mac. Same story! The browser gets you a different pet!!!

It's an old problem: http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=737504#737504

In Firefox it can be fixed with:
1. about:config
2. Find network.http.accept-encoding string
3. And delete its gzip,deflate value

But can't find a way for Chromium - this doesn't work...

Greetings!

Yeh, looking at the 2 versions of the pet I realised that the browser's one was decompressed and just a tar archive.
I did not have this problem in the past though Confused ....

There seems to be a problem with "shutdownconfig" in this ydrv.
I just did a fresh frugal install of slacko 5.9.3, using this ydrv, vmlinuz and initrd.gz from your "whiteouts" file, and the original puppy_slacko and zdrv.
On first shutdown I chose a save_directory. In the sanity check dialog, every thing looked ok, but it created a directory called "slackoslackosave" one level up from where it was supposed to be.
This looks like a "/" is missing, since it should have been "slackosave" in a directory called "slacko".

When I examined "shutdownconfig" from this ydrv, I noticed line 665 is:
Code:
Path (folder) of the pupsave:   \Zb\\\${SAVEPATH}/${NAMEONLY}\ZB
whereas line 673 contains:
Code:
   SAVEFILE="${SAVEPATH}${NAMEONLY}"
Note the "/" in the first but not in the second.

PostPosted: Mon 28 Jul 2014, 12:14    Post subject: downloads and md5sum problems  

Quote:

However, if you download through Firefox (or Midori) the downloaded pet has different md5sum than the one you get with wget! So somehow downloading ... you get a corrupted pet.
More important the md5sum ...
For the last couple of months I, too, have been having problems with downloads where the result was a file which matches in filesize, but, md5sum does NOT match its published constant. This has resulted in multiple downloads to get it right.

I have found the following:
  • PUP distro does not matter i.e. ones used all the time, test versions, etc.
  • Utility used does NOT matter i.e. browser, wget, etc
  • downloaded location does NOT matter i.e. USB, HDD, NAS, etc.
  • Cloud contributor does NOT matter i.e. Dropbox, Google, Ibiblio, mirrors, etc.
The ONLY thing I have not done was to fire up a Windows and test.

It now takes me multiple times in downloads to get an accurate download which matches the published md5sum. This is in sharp contrasts to the many years where I almost NEVER had any mismatching md5sums. Now, its become regular. I think its time for me to call my ISP.

Confused too.
P.S. In last week, when this occurs, I have followed the bad download to permanent media with downloading to RAM (for example /root) with much better results. But, this is a subjective response to secondary downloads.
