Subject description: Backup all your libs in one place
 

Just an idea to pass along. A lot of you are probably already doing this, but here it is just in case someone hasn't thought of it yet:

I run, and have ran many many different versions of Puppy over the last decade. I am constantly adding software from repos, from scratch, even ripping them directly out of other distros and then running them in terminal so it will tell me what dependencies are missing.

Now, my suggestion: Go into your file manager in YOUR Puppies and other Linux distros. Navigate to /usr/lib and copy every single lib in there into a folder somewhere and stash it on a thumbdrive or other convenient location. In time, you will amass a considerable amount of useful libs which you can them simply import as needed when you find that some libs are missing.

Hope this helps someone. Its helped me a lot since i started doing it. Cheers.

Hi All, presuming to use the same kernel, think you it might work with the drivers in: /lib/modules/X.XX.XX/kernel/drivers ?

Best Regards. Smile

Did you ever have problems with libraries being compiled with the wrong GlibC, or wrong options?

Not so far. Most of my libs that i have stashed so far are from 528, 571, and Slacko. Some from PCLOS as well. I have experienced a pretty good rate of interoperability when grabbing a lib here or there when required. Nothing is foolproof tho! I only use my stash when I cannot find what I need from current repos online.
