PostPosted: Wed 09 Sep 2015, 01:22    Post subject:  coreutils-8.24 & util-linux-2.27
Subject description: Latest versions as of this writing
 

Hello, all.

Here is an update of essential Linux utilities, freshly compiled on
PuppyPrecise-5.4.3, so they should work on all recent Puppies.

The version number is indicated as suffix to all the utilities, to avoid any
squishing of what you may already have on your Pup.

I tried to organize them as they are organized in Puppy. That said, I
would suggest that you unpack them only, somewhere safe -- NOT double
click to install them.

Then if you need to update one utility, rename the original in its original
place with ".old" as suffix, COPY the more recent utility from the directory
you just made, and make a link using the regular name.

Example using blkid:
    - go to /sbin
    - rename the existing blkid to blkid.old
    - copy blkid-2.27 from the util-linux package to /sbin/
    - in /sbin, link blkid-2.27 to blkid
    - copy all necessary libraries for blkid from /lib and /usr/lib in your
    util-linux-2.27 directory to similar directories /lib and /usr/lib in your Puppy.
    - Done!
I realize some may be offended because Puppy already has most of those
utilities, and they work perfectly well, or any other argument. As a power
user, I have discovered that the utilities included in Puppy do work well,
but sometimes they have been compiled as restricted or the busybox
ones are used, and you're out of luck if you need the full power of utility
x or y in a script.

Or they do not exist in Puppy. Case in point: lscpu or lsblkid do a very
fine job of listing cpu features and partition organization, respectively.
These simple, clear and efficient utilities save you from writing some bash
lines because they already exist. But oops, they can't be found in Puppy,
sorry -- before now.

In any case, I don't want to start an argument with anyone. I for one,
have found some of them useful. Just use these essential utilities as you
see fit, and be responsible about it.

Edit, Sept. 11: If you prefer to download these sets as regular zip archives, please
go down to this post. Thanks

Also, since this is the first time that I'm using my pcloud account to
distribute my compilations, your feedback will be most welcome
concerning accessibility of the files. Many thanks in advance.

So enjoy these utilities, but carefully! Smile

BFN.

Thank you, musher0, they are valuable resources. Do you think they will work in LupuPlus 5.2.8-005.1?
I have the full versions in my Debian, and realizing there are issues with Busybox, I will add these to my live disc next time I remaster.

Hi, tallboy.

My pleasure.

I can't tell, really, if these utilities will work in LupuPlus-5.2.8. The GLIBC
version used in Puppy Precise-5.4.3 is 2.15, with a date of 2012. If it's the
same or higher in LupuPlus, it should be ok.

@slavvo67: Nothing personal! The ethernet, generally! Smile

BFN.

Hello again!

Someone on the French side of the forum was confused as to what these utilities
did, so I prepared a PDF listing with a short explanation for each. It's here.

It there's a demand on the English side, I'll translate it into English. Otherwise, not
that I'm a sadist Wink , but you can do a
Code:
man <name_of_utility>
for the entire 139 of them. (hehe)

BFN

@musher0
I am getting "Link Error" for all the links to https://my.pcloud.com
(the 2 pets and the zip).

[EDIT]
I was able to access the files after modifying the link to https:/my.pcloud.com (i.e. I removed one of the '/'). You may want to edit your original post accordingly.

{EDIT 2 Sept-15]
FALSE ALARM!!!! Please ignore.

Hi, B.K. Johnson.

Thanks for the heads up.

I don't want to unsettle you, but I believe something weird is going on in your browser.

I double-checked my links above from my computer, and they react fine as they are.

Anyway, if this happens to someone else, they can follow your advice; so, thanks.

BFN.

Retried the original url and was successful so all's well but the problem wasn't my browser; a momentary glitch I suppose. Those gremlins will get the better of you everytime. Smile .

HI, B.K. Johnson.

Glad to know that all's well again.

You said:
> the problem wasn't my browser;

Maybe a sticky keyboard, then? (A gremlin called "Humidity-in-the-Air" has a lot of
fun with my typing on some of our hotter days here. ) Wink

Bye for now.
