PostPosted: Sun 02 Oct 2016, 02:09    Post subject: CCrypt  

I had a little fun putting a GUI on CCrypt. It encrypts a folder but also renames each file numerically so nobody can tell what the file actually is until you decrypt.

This idea was influenced a lot by Rufwoof's Pcrypt. CCrypt is running in RUXerus and should also run in most 64 bit Puppies and Quirkies.

It will be included in the next RUXerrus but I've attached a link for those interested in using it. It requires YAD, which is already installed in most puppies and quirkies.

I've been testing Palemoon27 Beta which seems to have some significant improvements over earlier versions. Time to revisit and I'll probably add that one to the desktop, as well....

Hi Slavvo,

I wanted to attempt to compile the openssl-1.0.2j myself, so as to further learn and teach myself. I downloaded yours so when I am done I can compare it and make sure I didn't goof anything up.

My question is this: I downloaded the openssl-.1.0.2j_tar.gz file from the official openssl site, then unarchived it into a separate folder, then opened a terminal in that folder. When I type in "./config" and/or "./config [with any parameter afterwards]", I am getting this response in the terminal after a few seconds of 'config' going through some things:

sh: make: command not found

I am using Barry's Xerus Xenial latest build, and I looked in Puppy Package Manager and it seems all the Development Tools for compiling Barry already installed. Can I ask what you did and/or maybe what I am doing wrong? Do I have to use python instead (in Quirky Xenial) when in the terminal for "./config" to work, something like:

# python ./configure.py
or
#python configure.py


Thanks for any help and/or tips with this (also, if you have any compile, make or install parameter tips, would be much appreciated Very Happy )

Hi belham2:

I took Watchdog's lead on this. I'm uploading the DEVX for you to use but... even when you compile, you should download watchdog's pet(s) and manually follow suit just to be sure all security is intact.

It was not completely automatic. Of course, I could have been doing something wrong, too. Let me know how you do. I don't use Python for this; I'm guessing you can but it might be recreating the wheel a bit. Most tar files have a help or readme file that tell you the recipe or instructions that you need to do to compile.

The DEVX link will be on page one. Also, I've been adding a few more utilities to the Pinboard. My latest are SplitVideos (splits by 5 minutes, 10 minutes, 30 minutes, 45 minutes or 1 hour), VideostoMP3 and CopyDirectory. They should be in the next release.

About compile scripts, I'm actually working on a pet project using a gui interface to allow for compiling certain things. For example, I'm constantly updating to having cutting edge YAD (yet another dialog) in RUXerus. It's not ready, yet and to the extent some manual things need to be done in the process, I want the script to automate them (like copy files before creating the pet.

Let me know how you do....

Kind regards,

Slavvo67

Hi Slavvo,

Thank you! Will give it a go later tonight or tomorrow. I'll try it a couple of more times, but if I keep goofing it up, I'm stopping and just installing your openssl-1.0.2j.pet I downloaded as I know it already works Smile . This trying to teach myself just a bit more overall about pup's (like compiling) sometimes really taxes this simple-pup-user's brain, haha Laughing

Okay. The make command definitely works. I think the difference is that Barry and others create the DEVX as an .sfs file. The .sfs files have been a sore point with me for quite sometime. In Puppy, they save a lot of space as you can mount/unmount as needed but in Quirky, it just makes sense to install a pet unless you are using a small USB stick. Most of my USB's are 16, 32 or 64GB's so there's usually plenty of room.

The .sfs is not always in a path that the terminal recognizes. You probably need to put it there and mount for it to work properly. That's probably why Barry's devx didn't work. I usually put my scripts in /root/my-applications/bin.

Some of the add-ons such as Xournal, LibreOffice and Firefox are in /opt location. I am re-evaluating Palemoon and it looks like the v27 Beta version is quite good and light. I expect to throw yet another browser icon onto the desktop.

Trying to fix Xournal, as it is not showing some icons. I fixed that problem and created another. We'll see how it goes.

Best,

Slavvo67

Hi Slavvo,

I got Barry's devx-8.0-Quirky (that I had downloaded yesterday) working in my Quirky 8.0 install, and it went through everything great. My output (at least size-wise) was identical to yours, so I thought great, when I opened them up to compare it'll all be the same. But, as with all grand expectations of a noob, boy did I screw the pooch (so to speak) as to the directories created in my compiling. When done & compared to yours, which I know is correct because everything worked in both RUXerus and Barry;s 8.0, my compiled directories were not the same. Sad Sooooo, I have to sit myself down the next few weeks and learn about identifying where whatever I am installing is supposed to be installed to, and also about using definitive parameters in the "./config" and "make" parts so those directories are created (and everything is installed) correctly.

Thanks again!

You should search the board. There's plenty of information on all topics here. Search gives you more than you want but it will highlight your search topic when it's in the title.

Hi Slavvo,

Thanks again for doing that openssl update! Wish every builder would be like you.

Have one other crazy question. Is it possible to take am currently existing install of RUXerus (on an 8GB SD card) and only copy the critical stuff (the init, vmlinuz, and and any sfs) and throw them on to a partition, set an entry in grub4dos, and actually have it boot up?

Or is not possible when doing installs with those expanding .gz or .lz compressed files? I'm just trying to understand why a 4GB USB stick wouldn't work if you only pulled out the critical files after a compressed image as filled up, say, an 8GB CD card.

I've tried these compressed images before, from Barry, then with rufwoof (his gigantic >=1gb KDE creation---still have it, it's fun to play with!)....but I've always wondered if I could just take (copy) what I need from these installs and make a frugally-partitioned-booting one of my own.

Hope, haha, this isn't too crazy sounding and that I'm not understanding something simple. Apologies if so Embarassed

Not sure. If I'm getting you correctly, you just want a bare bones of this distro to add your own stuff to. I understand, as things can get cluttered. Who needs 4 or 5 browsers, 2 word processors, etc?

WoofQ is Barry Kauler's building program to create Quirky projects, including Xerus64 (RUXerus is just Xerus64 with some of my tweaks but built via the WoofQ tool).

I can probably recompile a stripped down version for you but it will take some time. Been putting in long hours, lately.

Slavvo,

No, don't do a stripped down version just for me. Seriously! RU Xerus is already good. I guess the way I worded things seemed confusing. All I was trying to say, is that when you let the .gz image file expand when you installing (using dd) to a 8 or 16 GB USB (or SD card), it does not fill up anywhere near all those GBs. So, what I was wondering is if I just copied out the critical system and boot files, put them in a smaller partition, altered my grub4dos, would it all boot up (w/o problems)? I can see no reason why Barry's (or your RU Xerus) would not easily fit on a 4GB USB, and actually, from the looks of things I could get it on a 2GB USB. Barry is/was into this thing of creating a whole heck of a lot of room for certain parts of the OS, in essence, space just sitting waiting to be used, and well, for some of us, we still have a lot of 2gb-4gb sd cards & usb drives, and I'd like to run a quirky (or RU Xerus) off of those. Have no need (or rather desire) to keep buying 8 or 16 or 32 gb usb/sdcards. Frugal person, I am Laughing

Let me fool around doing this on my own, and don't waste your time doing a stripped down version. Just take whatever time you have and keep RU Xerus running great, and do like you have and keep the security updates uploaded so we can grab them quickly.

I'll let you know how it all goes....I am sure there is something I am not thinking of here, but I am an inveterate tinkerer, and I can afford to explode a few 2-4gb usb/sd cards Very Happy

Hi Belham2:

I'm curious to see where it goes. Keep me posted on your progress. I liked to keep things at a minimum, as well but because Quirky takes the whole stick and gives you plenty of room to add and add and add.. well, I get carried away.

Best,

Just a reminder to everyone, Quirky is a bit different from Puppy in that it's not live. It will save what you install so when you shutdown and boot back up, the installs, saves, docs, etc. will be there. I mention this because I recently installed an item or two that had an adverse affect on my Quirky where I decided it was better to wipe the USB stick and do a fresh install.

I backup just about everything but just a reminder....

IF IT'S TOO IMPORTANT TO LOSE.... BACK IT UP!!!

Under the Filesystem menu, Barry had created Snapshot Manager for just such occasions. It takes a bit of time and space on your USB stick but it could come in handy to use. I haven't tested it in RUXerus so if any of you use it, please let me know if it's working or not. It probably shouldn't be your only backup option, either.

I just posted Palemoon27 Beta

Here:
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=929520#929520

It's Beta only so beware but works really nicely. Works in RUXerus64 without any known issues.
