OK, I will ignore it for the moment. Smile

Need I go ahead and do these additional steps?

Then rename the existing folder
/usr/lib/qt
to
/usr/lib/qt-backup

Then create a symbolic link with these comands in a consolewindow:
ln -s /usr/lib/qt-renamed /usr/lib/qt
ldconfig

Now you should have qmake.

Puppy was created as a CD-based system.
As a CD is write-protected, a trick has to be used, to "mix" the content of different sources.
This trick uses a driver called unionfs.
So you can load /usr from CD, but also write to it in the pup_save.3fs.
To merge an additional source like the devx, also unionfs is required.

Now when you install it to harddisk (full installation), you loose all the benefits of this driver.
You have a "normal" linux, with all disadvantages.

For this reason I use a "frugal" install, where Puppy runs as a "mix" of CD-based system and harddisk-installation (which works without the CD).

Like this I have a very fast harddisk-based system, with the advantages of unionfs.
I can use devx...sfs without problem without copying all files to my harddisk.

Hey MU,

If you do a hard drive install using unionfs for the partition formats, isn't this driver loaded automagicly on boot??? Smile

Edoc: yes.

Bob: no idea.
We just got many reports from users, that the mounting does not take place automatically.

I don't know enough about the internals to tell you more Embarassed
