PostPosted: Wed 07 Sep 2011, 10:27    Post subject: pet packages for 2.14X Top 8.0
Subject description: pets compatible, including dependencies in a repository
 

@Ttuuxxx,
I am having trouble finding compatible pets that have dependencies.
Can you suggest a good repository? that includes dependencies?
I tried to install seamonkey 1.1.18 with addons like the one Barry included in Wary 5.12 .
The list of missing dependencies totalled about 50 items?
Got similar missing list when I tried the Seamonkey in the package manger of Top 8.0?
I have been using puppy for about 6 months and have tried several other puppies.
Usually, I am only missing a few libs as dependencies.
And I can search in the forum and add them without much trouble.
Just not sure which packages are compatible with Top 8.0
Many thanks for any help or suggestions.

Hi hows life ?, Yes I've been working on it, kind of undecided which glib to use, I used the latest stable gtk2 and if works fine but, then I tried to compile gtk3 and it wanted an unstable glib, which needed extra new deps, I just wanted to leave the window open for gtk3, undecided, because its such a large overhaul to change the whole backend, I would hate to do it again in another few months. So I just contemplating which way to go.

anybody try the screensaver I posted on the top of this page? Should it be added to the default 2.14x iso?
Also do we want to add GTK3 to 2.14X? If so 2.14X would have gtk 1,2,3 included. GTK3 would probably add in the ballpark of 2-3MB compressed to the iso. alot of newer apps are gtk3 only.

Hi ttuuxxx,

It´s great to know you are working in a new release. How is the little girl growing? Hope everything is OK with your faimly.

In my opinion I won´t go with GTK3 on the main tree, it could add compatibility problems to all apps on 214X. Although we could add newer apps that use GTK3 then we must support those new apps, fix new errors, track any compatibility problem and fight with any GTk3 new issue found... I don´t want to change the actual stable state of 214X, it could have a huge impact.

If you really want to experiment with GTK3, what about separate the work in a new 214X branch/project not intended to be supported (like a proof of concept) and start to replace some core apps (and why stop here? you could change the WM, upgrade kernel, upgrade Xorg, add new drivers, etc). It could be a good exercise but a hell of work for sure.

Talking about kernel upgrade, MHHP how is the patch recognition process from 2.6.18.1 to 2.6.18.8 going? any news about it?.

Waiting for reply boys.

Regards,

Hi ttuuxxx,
Just tried the screensaver - works fine and is very nice. I'll keep it.

Now I have a question. Using gnumeric in top 8 for the first time. In making a chart, the little icons to to select columns or whatnot for Name, X & Y data by clicking and dragging don't work for me (hope a picture gets attached). Is this a bug or an intentional simplification? If intentional, no biggie, but obviously I do use the feature.

Continued appreciation of 214X.
Jon

she's doing great 2 pic's below, she's 7 months now almost time for me to go back to work soon, maybe a couple more months. I want to make sure she's old enough before taking her to a daycare. She's a has a very funny personality and smiles almost 70% of the day, must be the happiest baby I've ever seen.

Hi John when it comes to spreadsheets/Gnumeric there are better people on this thread who can help you, I did take spreadsheets in school many years ago, but I've never had a use for one, sorry but I wouldn't be much help, but if there is an issue with Gnumeric, I can compile a newer version maybe for the next release.

Fonts are much improved with Aurora 6 in Top8. What is the situation with VLC? Is it possible to install VLC 1.1.x in Classic Pup? Where can I find the dotpet for VLC? (I didn't find it in the two repos.) Will this dotpup work?

EDIT: Wary 5.1.1 will play this video without error. Classic Pup 2.14X Top8 plays it with extreme stuttering. Can someone please confirm.

Gnumeric let's you paste data using _anything_ as the separator. I have found it to be extremely useful for visualizing and sorting package databases and other large files that use "¦" as a separator or is otherwise wierdly formatted
