Hi lguleder,

As gposil is no longer maintaining his dpup I checked out Squeeze 009 and dropped into debian dependency hell.

The puppy package manager put a lot of stuff into /root but could not find 3 or 4 libs and of course the programs would not work.

I think you are working on the problem with pdebthing and wish you luck. It's not easy to set up a new pup and there must be a lot of pressure of the sort that drove off gposil.

Regards Tony


Newby here. I haven't been on a forum in 10 years. Been with linux since redhat 9 and puppy for the last couple of years.

I agree with dependency hell. However, I found them all at debian lib site. Right now have a couple of packages that don't work I downloaded from default puppy squeeze repository.

One in particular was the long awaited VLC 1.1.x version. Now please help me understand that with no missing dependencies why VLC doesn't work. When I try to start it in terminal it states it can't be run in root.. Help me understand why a puppy squeeze009 repository would have a package not design to run at root. It indeed runs from user spot but that is worthless if it can't be set as default multimedia player. Am I missing something here?

For all who contribute their time, skills and talents to putting out these excellent puppy derivatives, I thank profusely.

Any insight into my dilema would be most appreciated.

The reason why that happens is because the developer who added the VLC package took the easier Debian way out, I've compiled VLC a few times and let me tell you its not fun, around 50 packages it took for 0.86h and lots of troubleshooting, now I think its easier but you have to enable root user while configuring the sources, but being that this package was taken from the Debian repo it wouldn't of been configured for puppy root user, probably a spot script could easily be built for vlc and added to the package.

Great news!

Just let me know if you want to take over the Debian Puppy efforts Smile

My army duty is supposed to start in about one month and I want two weeks to rest, spend time with people I love and get ready. I also need a break from work with puplets and puppies. Smile

I really hope a "final" release will be here in the next two weeks. At the moment I wait for Barry to upload the Woof used to build the final Wary. I'll do my best to upload all the cool extras we have in Squeeze so the Lupu guys and people who want to continue or fork this won't have too many problems.

And gposil, you know ... you're the chosen one Wink
