Hi, Sailor.

Mm. You've got two advantages with Xenial, though; one, it's 'buntu-based.....and two, it's Phil developing it. He'll make it as compatibile as Tahr was.

There's no reference to anything to do with WINE in the Slacko repos at all.

Hiya, peebee.

O-kay. Translation, please..! 'Wine-extra-bits'; what are these, exactly?

Morning, peebee.

Mm-hm. 'Kay. I don't know if it's just me, but all that stuff you gave me the link to looks awfully like source code; 'make-files' all over the place. I've never compiled a thing in my life; wouldn't even know where to start.

(Actually, that's not strictly true; I did compile the 'gimp-gap' extension for the GIMP in Slacko 570.....but that was under CatDude's instruction. If he hadn't led me through it, literally step-by-step, I wouldn't have known what I was doing..!)

I later found out that it's in the repos of all the 'buntu-based Pups..!)

But if I'm right, and it is compiling, I'm guessing every single one of those folders has to be compiled, too. Looks like a very long and tedious business indeed..... (*sheesh*)

Do I really need WINE that badly ? I guess not..... Laughing

EDIT:- Just found out that AlienBob's done a version of WINE 1.8 for 14.1. I've downloaded it; I'll have a look at it later on...!

The link sent you to .txz files - which are loadable packages....
There is source on the same site but you don't need it....the .txz are compiled ready for slackware...

1.9.13 is the latest - 1.19.4 will appear soon as the source is there now.

e.g. https://sourceforge.net/projects/wine/files/Slackware%20Packages/1.9.13/x86_64/wine-1.9.13-x86_64-1sg.txz/download

Hiya, peebee.

Well, problem sorted. I've got AlienBob's WINE 1.7.51 installed in Slacko64; I wanted to stick with the version that works so well with the two graphics apps I use so much; Mooi's 'PhotoScape', and Adobe's CS2 'Photoshop'.

The thing that threw me was the fact that the 64-bit versions have not only 'wine' in /usr/bin, but also 'wine64' Normally, you'd click on 'wine', followed by 'winecfg' to set it all up, and create the /root/.wine folder.....but in a 64-bit Pup, of course, you have to use 'wine64' instead'.....

Old habits die hard! Laughing

In the first run settings, I'm not given the option to enable the fire wall.

On another note,I'm having wierd boot issues with my windows 8.1 machine (probably not slaco related). In the case of both grub4dos and unetbootin once the kernal was mounted and boot image loaded, it was as though it could no longer read the USB drive to find the sfs file.

Strangly though, now it is working. Perhaps the complete poweroff helped. This new bios stuff is a bit of a mistory to me.

I'm not sure whether it will or will not work the next time I try. I guess we'll see. **Note I am booting from a USB drive.

I'm trying to install vitualbox.

I downloaded the SUSE version because I read that early slackware was most influenced by SUSE. Also it turns out there are tools to convert rpm to tgz available through the puppy package manager.

After doing this the tgz modula appears to install virtualbox.

Now I need to build the kernal moduals or virtualbox won't load. The following link suggests:
Code:

modprobe vboxdrv

https://forums.opensuse.org/showthread.php/513172-virtualbox-broken-by-kernel-upgrade


This didn't work. I remember phill explaining before how to build the kernal menu's for tahrpup. I can try to find the post. However, I don't know if these modules are included in slaco by default.

Perhaps first I should also see what sfs files I might need to load first before building the kernel modual menus.

@S243a, on FirstRUN, there are several versions seen across the PUPPY spectrum. In the modern era of today, There is this version in Slacko/ThurPUP which is maintained by @01Micko AND there is a version from @BarryK. Further, for older PUPs with FirstRUN technology, there is @Shinobar's version which improved how PUP boots and how users have a clearer view of their startup requirements of their PUPs.

They have some similarities but are different in the scope each of these developers see as a need when starting any new PUP to support user needs. It appears that @01Micko intends that uses conscious of f/w will click the taskbar to control behavior of the firewall vs a blanket startup.

Beware, when using @BarryK's version as he has several. His most recent has a quirk which starts the firewall even when a users does not want it started because user's router provide a necessary firewall for one's network. He has acknowledged this problem and intends to fix his FirstRUN.

More info than asked.

The desktop settings don't seem to be saving for me such as font size and the height of the menu items.

edit The settings seem to have saved the second time that I tried. Weird.

Firefox keeps getting stuck behind the taskbar (or tray as I think it's called on linux). I'm not sure how to drag it down.

edit: Pressing F11 to go to full screen, and then moving the cursor to the top of the screen seemed to work for me.

Evening, all.

Was wanting to upgrade to the 4.2.5 kernel. There doesn't appear to be an Upgrade widget like there is in Tahr64. Does the 'change_kernels' script need to be run through the terminal?
