Thanks for the good wishes, including the "young" part! Wink

Like you, I think that going back to any WhineDose incarnation is not worth
the trouble on any hardware, while there are Linux's around.

Subject description: 64 bit Xenialpup on a 32 bit computer
 

Musher
Do you think Xenialpup 64 bit could run on a 2001 HP 32 bit computer ?
Have always run 32 bit Linux, but future developments are going to 64 bit.

Here, I use grub4dos .
Ever since I compared Ubuntu vs Puppy, about seven years ago,
and switched to the compacted system files of Puppy,
I have used grub4dos.

Hi glene77is.

I am afraid i can be of little help concerning 64-bit Puppies. The only one
I have used is Just_Lighthouse_64-604, by forum member Dry_Falls, and
it is fabulous!

I tried a xenialPup64 once, but its performance was sluggish on my set-
up (please see attached description). So that was that, I removed it.

A sixty-four-bit Pup has the same apps as its 32-bit counterpart. If it does
not offer the speed advantage -- or maybe a needed driver written for a 64-
bit PC--, IMO, installing it is not worth the trouble.

BFN.

Subject description: Xenial Pup sfs_load
 

Musher,
I have been noticing that the subroutine in sfs_load "waitsplash"
does not do anything.
I have tried running the line
/usr/lib/gtkdialog/box_splash -text "$* $(gettext "Wait a moment ...")"
at the end of the rc.shutdown program.
( end of the shutdown is where I test routines).

. /usr/lib/gtkdialog/box_splash -text "$* $(gettext "Wait a moment ...")"

What is the "$*" , a variable ?

If you could, please, suggest a correction (or tutorial text)
on this simple routine.
BASH has been an interesting, if convoluted, experience.

As a background,
I spent several decades writing commercial relational-databases
in the highly structured world of FoxPro and T-SQL.
BASH is not so highly structured.

Hi glene77is.

Reading your background, I feel you must be way ahead of me on so
many computing subjects. You are a professional and I am only an
"amateur" (hopefully in the positive sense of the word). As a university
student, I tried APL (unsuccessfully!) for a few months, then many years
later Atari Basic and TurboBasic, then with Puppy, bash (and a bit of ash).

I haver never ventured into gtkdialog coding, so I cannot help you,
unfortunately.

The simplest thing to do IMO would be to mention this oversight directly
to the author of sfs_load, "shinobar". AFAIK, he has not posted on this
board for a long time. Try PM'ing him anyway? Who knows, maybe he's
still around, lurking ?!

Other that that, off the top of my head, I'd say your go-to persons for
gtkdialog code would be forum members "MochiMoppei" and "wiak".
Perhaps send them a PM? There are other competent gtkdiapog coders
on this board, but their names escape me at this time.

Also, there are a few gtkdialog threads on the forum: perhaps browse
through them and / or repost your question in one of them.

Best of luck. Sorry I cannot be of more help...

~~~~~~~~~
PS. I almost forgot to mention that one sure way of drawing attention to
the problem, and potentially a solution to it, is to create a separate thread
for the problem.

Musher,
Thank you for the informative and tempered response.
We are who we are.
Your suggestion to post in a new topic is appropriate.
I have found a tutorial on GTK,
and (functionally) this is not a serious problem.
I did resolve the problem of "where" Xenial is slowing down.

Wished I were a young man and a serious student, again.
That is what got me into radio electronics and Linux.
BASH is a bitch , but there is much more BASH code in this river
... the learning curve into complex functions
is steeper than first appears.
Copying previous working system code is a good first step.
I have found several good tutorials.

Thanks again,
and I hope you continue your serious interest
in these technologies.
