Src2pkg is now available in the repo.

Src2pkg can compile source code and build pets for you.

I have hacked it to use Barry's new2dir and dir2pet instead of the the default packaging methods.

Not all source code will compile without modifications to either the code, build scripts, or system. Thus src2pkg will only work packages that are easy to compile.

The devx must be installed for it to work.
Thanks Jemimah. There is one package I have long sort for a package in Puppyland; namely XRDP. Your distro seems to be appropriately ideal for this package as it does provide multi-user built-in.

But, not being an experience person to take source to package, I have relied on others in the community for advice.

But, your note references problem area that I am not skilled to resolve much less understand how to tell if any of the mentioned problems would exist after Src2pkg is run.

Can anyone steer me to a document or write-up on use of the Src2pkg tool for a product like XRDP?

Thanks in advance for guidance.

Hi jemimah,

Thank you for the re-uploaded perl-gtk2-1.242.pet and the modified lxlauncher. I'll try them out soon.

While exploring the customization opportunities of Saluki, I stumbled upon the radio button in Control Panel/Desktop/xfce Desktop Settings for selecting a "Desktop Image List". Currently, as shown by the attached, selecting that option does nothing beyond changing one's background to a solid black. Perhaps because, as yet, I have not provided the "List." I would guess its purpose is to automatically change the background either randomly or sequentially. Something else?
Has such option actually been implemented? And if so, how and where would someone provide the List: for example "plain test file located in the usr/share/xyz folder."
Thanks in advance.

Hopefully, our seemingly incessant requests stimulate your creativity ('Smile') rather than drive you slightly nuts. ('Sad') But then again, perhaps its the same thing. ('Rolling Eyes')

Saluki does not have multi user. It is completely unsuitable for use a server (except the sort of server that is not exposed to the internet, and that only you yourself use).

Also src2pkg is probably not going to be very useful if you do not have at least rudimentary compiling and packaging skills.

If you really need to remote into it, Remmina does include a vnc server, or you tunnel X over ssh.

Am running Saluki 017 as the only system on my ThinkPad R51 internal drive for a day now, and have been impressed.

For some reason however, I cannot install any PET packages with Puppy Package Manager. Even when I download a package only and try to open with petget, I get an 'Error, package xxsaluki.pet failed to install' or if I try to download and install in Puppy Package Manager itself after choosing smokey01.com it says 'Error, faulty download of xx.pet

Saluki-018 has been uploaded.

I added splash screens and fixed some bugs.

Let me know if it is ready for release.

Weird. Perhaps check the md5sum of your iso and/or reinstall.

Thanks @Jemimah. This is what I suspected as a skillset need.

Is thre a PET somewhere for this. And, does it have multimedia ability such that I can run a media app and see/hear it.

Thanks in advance.

Saluki 018 live pfix=ram quick sanity check.

Sound and internet good on initial boot....booted to a 1280x1024 resolution but used xorgwizard from Firstrun to get desired 1366x768.

Quick check of a few apps show everything appearing to work correctly.

Well, looks pretty solid except I cannot ping and Wget doesn't work. Unless I use the "-4" suggested by BarryK in the Wary thread.

Upgraded with 018 and it works like 017 initially did. Can't figure how it broke somewhere along the way!

However, printer-scanner-core-1.pet is a broken link at smokey01.com

Thanks.

I did add '-4' to 0setup. Is there somewhere else I need to add it?

Remmina is included in saluki, and so is sshd.

Sshd wouldn't support remote audio, I'm not sure if vnc does or not. Teamviewer might.
