Thanks,

I'll try it when I get home this evening and report back.

home now, 10:30, and I am writing this from inside Opera 10.10. Everything works exactly as you said, and as it should Thank you.
Running Opera from rxvt, I get the message that libjvm.so and libawt.so from LD_PRELOAD cannot be preloaded. Opera works fine, so I won't worry about it.

Thanks for the help

The one remaining irritant is the linking of symlinks when the file that it links to is not on the sfs.

(the .so files in the DEVx.sfs for example, where the files are expected to be on the existing file system instead)

solution would be to check if each file is a symlink and if so, just copy it

Dear Technosaurus

some time ago I announced to be happy since I found sfs-linker makes possible mount ands use a devx sfs from LIVE CD

Now I investigated better and more in deep

see image attached, it represents /usr/lib/ after devx mount (with sfslinker latest version)

several symlinks seem broken, the strange is that are pointing to files supposed in devx. Maybe this is a union/aufs limit? devx can't be used fully without frugal install at least and a reboot?

the links are pointing to the symlink in the sfs which is in turn pointing to a library that doesn't exist in the sfs (it is actually in the main sfs)
- this means that to function properly symlinks need to be copied NOT symlinked

something like this: (oversimplified for clarity and laziness)
Code:
if [ -h $FILE ]
then
 cp $FILE $DEST
else
 ln -s -f $FILE $DEST
fi

Hi Dingo,
The broken symlinks are pointing to other symlinks in the /mnt/devx_431.sfs/usr/lib/. That is, they are not pointing at real files but only at other symlinks to real files which does not work.

This is what technosaurus meant when he said:
Quote:

Its on my list of things to look into when I get some time, but for right now I just load devx files with BootManager. Embarassed

Hope that explanation is clear, J

Thanks jrb, would be very useful to compile everything from LIVE CD, this is probably, the reason I can't compile some apps from LIVE CD. I'll patiently wait

I have enough ram that I can just cd into the mounted sfs and
cp -arf * /

not optimal but it works in a pinch

PostPosted: Fri 16 Jul 2010, 02:42    Post subject: Problems with Quirky 1.02  

Attempted to add the linker to quirky 1.02

Package manager says it was installed, but the .sh file was not installed in /usr/local/bin The folder was created in root

Copied the script from 4.3.1, set permissions, and still no joy.

Any suggestions?

Thanks

Thom

I have uploaded SFS-TCZ_Linker-1.5.pet on page 1 of this thread.

Have cleaned up a few things and also worked out a way to use SFS_Linker with Live CD/DVD's.

Hope it works well for you, J

Hi Thom,
I just loaded quirky1.2 onto a bootable flash, installed SFS_TCZ_Linker-1.5 and loaded an SFS, ch4-aaphoto_resize.sfs, and used it to resize a photo. No problem.

I rebooted, created a save file, and then copied 3 SFS's, ch4-aaphoto_resize.sfs, ch4-Dillo2.sfs, and ch4-gimp-2.6.8-q1.sfs, to /mnt/home on the flashdrive. When I rebooted again. All 3 showed up in /root/my_links/sfs_mnt_home. I have installed them with Linker and used them. Had to start gimp from the console, think there's a problem with the desktop file.

I placed a link to Dillo in /root/my_links/sfs_boot_links and when I rebooted it was installed.

You don't mention what kind of problem you had. Perhaps you tried using one of the SFS's from Puppy4 that isn't compatible with Quirky? Some of them work and some of them don't.

Give me more details on what you did and perhaps I can figure out the problem.

Cheers, J

I just downloaded the file and reinstalled, worked fine. You might try downloading again. Hope it works.

I have included two versions. One with replacement /usr/local/bin/defaultprograms so your loaded programs will become the defaults and one without.


so what version makes the sfs files default then
