PostPosted: Tue 26 Jul 2005, 12:47    Post subject: Can't get this to work...  

Please help a new Puppy who is also a (whimper) Windows refugee. (There. I said it.)

I am using Puppy to help learn Linux before buying a new computer on which I will install (I hope) some complete distro on its own partition. I want to learn simple routine tasks, such as installing new software, for example. To do this I picked xzip, a simple, small interpreter for z-machine interactive fiction games.

I couldn't locate a Puppy package for this, so I thought this topic would help me install what I need to be able to compile source code for myself.

Quote:
Get the following slackware packages from:
http://ftp.gwdg.de/pub/linux/slackware/slackware-10.1/slackware/d/

Quote:

binutils-2.15.92.0.2-i486-2.tgz
gcc-3.3.4-i486-1.tgz


and from:
http://ftp.gwdg.de/pub/linux/slackware/slackware-10.1/slackware/l/

Quote:

glibc-2.3.4-i486-1.tgz


Put this in reach of a type 2 hdd install (I have put them on CD-R; so /mnt/cdrom/<tgzfile> for this howto)

boot Puppy Linux from hdd install. Open a terminal (rxvt). You should be in /root.

Save /etc because slackware files will destroy this?! I have not investigated this any further!
So here I will just repair it afterwards...

tar czvf etc.tgz /etc/*

Now install the 3 tgz files from above:
# change working dir to / ; must be in / !!
cd /
tar zxvf <tgzfile>
# important to run the slackware doinst script!
sh install/doinst.sh
# do this for all 3 tgz file
# now restore destroyed /etc files
tar zxvf /root/etc.tgz

--- DONE ---


Following these instructions, the first two files seemed to work just fine. The glibc file won't work, however. Running sh install/doinst.sh after untarring produces:

Error while loading shared libraries: libc.so.6: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

To whomever all this info may be meaningfull, PLEEZE explain it to me.

Thank you, everyone.

you could also have a look at the opttools thread too...


The only prob is that Puppy uses glibc-2.3.2 and slackware-10.1 uses glibc-2.3.4 there maybe some prob's there

I had a positive recommendation from a friend about trying out Chubby Puppy. I already have Puppy 1.0.4 and like it very much.

There is a link on the main Puppy site to a gentleman who kindly provided a "Rolls Royce" Chubby Puppy Edition, but I have not been able to access it this evening.

Is this offering still available? Is there a second source for it, or will the posted site be back online again soon?

I see that there are many ways now to extend Puppy, but I was hoping not to have to invest a great deal of time into that myself, at least not right at this moment (though in the future, who knows, I may start doing extensions myself).

For now, I'd appreciate a way to get the already created edition dubbed "Chubby Puppy".

Great stuff in here, especially some of this cutting edge stuff. When I get more free time, I certainly WOULD LOVE to experiment more with it myself!

bladehunter:

Thank you, I'll give it a try! May I ask: I found the glibc-2.3.2 in Slackware 9.1, so should I get the gcc and binutils in 9.1 as well?

masinick:

I'm actually running Chubby Puppy. Works beautifully. Download is slow though, and the host seems to have little bandwidth. Maybe the BitTorrent P2P download thingy is a better idea.

If P2P doesn't work and you need to try downloading Chubby from the website, I have the following observation: the host rejects multiple simultaneous connections from the client as a means of saving bandwidth, so if you use a download manager of some kind, you need to force the number of simultaneous downloading streams to one. Makes the download slowwww Evil or Very Mad but it worked for me.

Not sure what I mean

Now that I have Vector Linux running inside Puppy gonna have another go at compiling C
- can not be that hard (in fact it ain't 'coz I did it once . . . - in another dimension it may have been . . .)

Cool
