I think the thread for LxPrecisePup1509 is actually here:
http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=862384#862384

But as you say, the link here:
http://lx-pup.weebly.com/upup-precise.html

Mentions:
Quote:
Mavrothal provided enhancements to support save folders to form Precise Puppy 5.7.2

It looks like an early experiment from 2014-2015... but if you post in the LxPup thread maybe peebee will respond or maybe even upgrade the iso (not sure).

Thanks, Sailor

I have posted there and put a link here.
Hopefully peebee can give clarification.

Some versions of /usr/local/petget/pkg_chooser.sh did not collect free disk space info. Fixed by editing that file, by inserting following 3 lines of code at line 2 (after #!/bin/sh):

mf=`free | grep -o 'Mem: .*' | tr -s ' ' | cut -f 4 -d ' '`
sm=`expr $mf \/ 1024`
echo "$sm" > /tmp/pup_event_sizefreem

EDIT: Above checks free memory. Commentors below refer to that. To check disk space, first line should be:
mf=`df | grep -m 1 '/dev/' | tr -s ' ' | cut -f 4 -d ' '`

G'day Ozsouth,

I put those lines. I suppose the lines somehow 'tricked' by putting values into variables that PPM expected.
The math is not correct though, not consistent even. That is, in fact, I have 8.9GB free space. And after inserting your lines of code, it showed 1256MB and 1263MB (two different numbers at two different PPM execution times). I didn't install anything at both times of executing PPM.

I supposed, your 'workaround' will enable PPM to continue its job.
But does not get to the bottom of the problem, ie. savefolder support.
And when 'savefolder' works, in PPM it should show 8.9GB available (?).

Link below shows screenshots from upupbb, that supports savefolder properly. Free space in PPM is pretty much same as in file manager.

Thanks oz, for showing me your 'trick'..

LxPrecisePup1509 complained that I have no more space left when trying to install some pkg by PPM.

Wow - a blast from the past - LxPrecisePup is getting on for 3 years ancient!!

This is a PPM problem - not a savefolder/savefile problem.....

The answer is to configure PPM to use the "traditional non-auto user interface" and then to use the "Examine dependencies" and "Download only" buttons to fetch the packages. Once fetched, click on the packages to install them.

Amazing really that PPM still works at all.... Wink

Thanks peebee, that works. Smile
It was not able show how much space available (my guess it was using same part of codes to do that with the other option), but your way allow PPM to proceed.

I guess, this is 'side effect' of using savefolder, since savefile does not show such symptom.

Thanks again peebee for responding so quick.

You're telling me..! Considering 'Precise Pangolin' went officially EOL last year (April 2017), I'm constantly amazed I can still install stuff from the PPM, both in 5.7.1 and ETP's 'Chromebook Pup'.....based on 571 with Openbox.

Can't last much longer, surely.....?


Mike. Smile
