PostPosted: Mon 12 Jul 2010, 14:09    Post_subject: audacity made with debs2pkg  

TO see the latest improvements in audacity go to
http://code.google.com/p/audacity/source/list
To build the latest audacity package here is the method I now use:
I go to https://launchpad.net/~audacity-team/+archive/daily/+packages
to get latest debian package

audacity_1.3.12+svn201007100901+r6235-0lucid1_i386.deb

put in a folder with
libjack0_0.118+svn3796-1ubuntu2_i386.deb
libflac++6_1.2.1-2build2_i386.deb
libsoundtouch1c2_1.3.1-2_i386.deb
libvamp-hostsdk3_2.1-1_i386.deb
libtwolame0_0.3.12-1_i386.deb
libwxgtk2.8-0_2.8.10.1-0ubuntu1_i386.deb
libwxbase2.8-0_2.8.10.1-0ubuntu1_i386.deb
which I got from
http://packages.ubuntu.com/lucid/audacity
The folder can be named anything.
I used debs2pkg, available from
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=431355#431355
The terminal command
Code:
debs2pkg -p audacity-july10-1.3.13

creates a folder named audacity-july10-1.3.13
I make a couple of changes to desktop file,like the icon path.
Then the command
Code:
dir2pet audacity-july10-1.3.13

makes the package audacity-july10-1.3.13.pet
I made it available at www.esnips.com/web/lupu
I now have a method to make an audacity package in only a couple of minutes!
I see that debs2pkg has been renamed alien2puppy
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?search_id=77138970&t=57548
I will try it out!
EDIT: Tried and highly recommend!!

PostPosted: Mon 12 Jul 2010, 14:40    Post_subject: abiword package creation  

Here are my notes for making a package for Abiword to help newbies:
I downloaded the debian packages from
https://launchpad.net/~n-muench/+archive/programs-ppa
https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/lucid/i386/abiword/2.8.2-2ubuntu1

I merged the following packages:
abiword_2.8.6-0u1~ppa1_i386.deb
abiword-common_2.8.6-0u1~ppa1_all.deb
abiword-plugin-grammar_2.8.6-0u1~ppa1_i386.deb
abiword-plugin-mathview_2.8.6-0u1~ppa1_i386.deb
libabiword-2.8_2.8.6-0u1~ppa1_i386.deb
libaiksaurus-1.2-0c2a_1.2.1+dev-0.12-6build1_i386.deb
libaiksaurus-1.2-data_1.2.1+dev-0.12-6build1_all.deb
libwps-0.1-1_0.1.2-1_i386.deb

I make a couple of changes to abiword.desktop file
to give the correct category and the icon path,
then I make the folder into a pet package with the command:
dir2pet abiword-2.8.6-lupu
I have made it available at www.esnips.com/web/lupu

When a check of dependencies is done, there is a long list of
missing dependencies but it works well from my
short testing period on Lucid Puppy 117 and 204
It won't work on Puppy4.3.1
release notes http://www.abisource.com/changelogs/2.8.6.phtml
Note: the last 3 debian packages (libaiksaurus,libaiksaurus data, and libwps)
aren't necessary but I included them anyway for better compatibility.

Another live test of Luci-210 with a different Nvidia card....an older GeForce 4 mx4000.

Chose "probe","1024x768x24" and got the nouveau driver.Display offset to the right about a quarter inch, and was unsuccessful with any driver upgrades.
Rebooted and now using the nv driver.

Can you try one of CatDude's pets that suits the card? That test-vid script will get you to the nVidia website.

Maybe start pfix=ram and CHOOSE nv... take nouveau out of play before it grabs hold... it's hard to shake!! Laughing Laughing Laughing

Cheers

Will do in a few. Smile

Just did a reboot,started with nv and tried the Nvidia driver in Quickpet........X would not even start. Laughing
Rebooted again,started with nv and now downloading the big 46 mb pet.
Nope, won't even start X either.I love testing.......... Laughing
Posting from another machine by the way.....rebooting and I'll try your idea next.

EDIT:

Rebooted again, live and pfix=ram....................started with nv and downloaded CatDude's 96.43.16 Nvidia pet.....exited to a prompt, etc., etc..................X wouldn't start.According to the documentation the driver should work with the mx 4000 but............. Laughing

first problems guys - 210frugal install
1- web browser video is lousey (I have a tried both firefox and the default) letters running/stretching down the screen (both with and without xorg_high)
209 was great, 210 is slowwwwww. I have a intel corp 82915G/GV/910GL IGC (rev04)

2- 60hz problem with xorgwizard still there from my earlier report

3 PPM > configure> tick a box> update - it downloads ALL sets, not just the one you want, pc goes dead slow and can't kill it.


Request for ppm
Can we have a setting in ppm so it doesn't delete the .pet after install, i'd like to be able to copy it to use elsewhere after install to update others without redownloading each time.

have fun
scsijon
ps for playdayz -eudora tests ok on my 210.

Sub_title: nvidia-glx fails after using nouveau
 

luci-210 on my PC with Nvidia GeForce 8800GT.
Started X with nouvaux driver probed.
Installed nvidia-glx-256.36 driver via quickpet.
Exit to prompt and run xorgwizard, it uses fbdev because the nvidia driver failed. Seems loading nvidia.ko failed.

Next time, i restarted luci-210 again with RAM only mode.
This time i avoided to probe graphic driver, and chose Vesa instead.
Installed nvidia-glx-256.36, and ran xorgwizard.
This time, successfully X starts with nvidia driver.

Think the nouvaux driver causes something trouble with the system, and fails to load nvidia.ko.

Hi shinobar

Yeah, nouveau was supposed to be left out but it in some discussion with playdayz looks like it crept back in somehow.

As you say, a user must choose vesa or nv in the initial xorgwizard to have any hope of using the nvidia pet.

We have all experienced (with nvidia) similar to what you describe.

Cheers

Hi,

I'm trying to get VirtualBox 3.2.6 (PUEL-Version) working Very Happy


Code:
# ./VirtualBox-3.2.6-63112-Linux_x86.run
Verifying archive integrity... All good.
Uncompressing VirtualBox for Linux installation..........
VirtualBox Version 3.2.6 r63112 (2010-06-25T14:18:40Z) installer
Please install the build and header files for your current Linux kernel.
The current kernel version is 2.6.33.2
Problems were found which would prevent VirtualBox from installing.
Please correct these problems and try again.
#
So where can I find these build and header files for k2.6.33.2 please?

As far as I know, vboxdrv doesn't match the right kernel (Ubuntu 10.4 has k2.6.32.xx and luci k2.6.33.2). That's a complete new area for me but with the abandon of not knowing I will try Very Happy

~ Rolf

Thanks to shinobar I've solved my Nvidia graphics problem. I didn't realize that I should start my fresh install with vesa.

NVIDIA-96.43.16_lupu500-k2.6.33.2.pet installed fine and graphics are much faster. Is it worth including this in quickpet
for older Nvidia cards?

Sub_title: Starting from a Xorg Configuration using VESA is best
 

I have found, like others, that starting from Xorg configuration using VESA is the easiest way to install the official Nvidia pet.. I have been working on a pet for Slack Pup, which has both the nv and nouveau drivers. Trying to change to nvidia driver seems to fail. However, one can always change to the nvidia driver using the pet if the initial configuration is VESA. I hope this helps.

I've been using Opera 10.11 on (2) 5.01 installs and all these test installs....seems to work fine. 10.60 on the other hand......... Laughing
There are complaints everywhere about 10.60 being buggy and not quite ready for prime time, but it's still fast. Smile


Thanks James C. I was going to ask your opinion of whether we should use 10.60 as our Opera. I have got it now. I agree btw. Thanks.

OK I un installed songbird .. and deleted a directory called .songbird2 ( to see if that helped)

I then re installed via quickpet . The install was successful..but still no menu entry..when I try to start it from a console i get this now !!


g0pey, How large is your pupsave file? That is the number in the lower right corner. If it is too small, less than 100 probably, then programs will not install correctly. What version of puppy, luci-209? I just tested and it installed and there was a menu entry under multimedia. If you have enough pupsave memory, then try to exit to a prompt and enter 'fixmenus' and then enter 'xwin' to return to jwm. Have you changed anything from default? Background shouldn't matter? Sorry we don't have a quick fix.

I increased my save file size by +512 M .. so it went from 380M free to over 900 M..


Good. I see you got it yourself. The numbers seem large to me also, but Songbird is a large program and it needs at least double--and more--to install the pet. The downside of installing some of the programs we are using is this. I routinely use 1024MB of pupsave memory. Those who want to use less certainly can--Puppy has no frills programs to do most things.

The best way to survive would be removing BOTH nv and nouveau drivers from the sfs. If they are in separate PETs, users could choose either of them after booted up using vesa. Thus, installing the proprietary nvidia driver wouldn't be a nightmare.

Note that I don't see a huge performance difference between vesa, nv and nouveau.
