Subject description: links 2.6 web browser
 

I compiled and made a pet of Links 2.6 Web Browser in fatdog64-600 alpha2.

Warning Links older than 2.7pre1 contains some bugs that can result in writing out of allocated memory if Links is running in graphics mode. This can be potentially exploited to attack the computer. If you use graphics mode you should upgrade to Links 2.7pre1.

The links version 2.6 can be removed in fatdog package manager.

Although, xorgwizard does not work, I was able to remove the "nouveau" driver and install the latest NIVIDIA driver.

Can you try the hp drivers in the package manager?
They worked, really like your new Package Manager. I should have checked it for latest drivers. Embarassed

PostPosted: Fri 18 May 2012, 22:59    Post subject: BibleTime version 2.9.1  

BibleTime version 2.9.1 is now available. I did install the older BibleTime version 2.8.1, which works fine in Fatdog64-600. Hopefully, the newer version will be in your great new "Fatdog64 Package Manager" when it reaches final release.

Incidently, a minor edit is needed in /usr/share/applications/bibletime.desktop so that the proper icon shows up. Change Icon line to:
Code:
Icon=/usr/share/bibletime/icons/bibletime.png


Thanks for this superb Fatdog64-600,
Jim

Odd, in my machine it is a tad slower. Busybox blkid does not return volume labels.

EDIT: busybox blkid does return volume labels Shocked I may have been testing with the old busybox.

Anyway, how does this one fare?
Code:
ls /sys/class/block | grep -vE "^loop|^ram|^nbd|^sr" | xargs -I '{}' disktype /dev/'{}'

It reads the content of /sys/class/block and tries to decipher what's inside, just like blkid, but it uses different tool. See if this is faster than the original blkid?

rcrsn51 prepared all those drivers; so they are the same as the ones you've used before, only newer. So all thanks to him Smile
Glad you like the new package manager. Next is to make the repository does contain something Smile

I used to use autocutsel instead of glipper. The idea of having a dead symlink is that one just need to put the autocutsel binary in /usr/bin and it will suddenly spring to life. But nowadays I'm happy with glipper too. I'll remove that link in next release; otherwise it's harmless.

This code executed in about 2 min and includes much more information.

On another matter, xfe, installed with the Package Manager, give an error:
    # xfe
    xfe: error while loading shared libraries: libGL.so.1: wrong ELF class: ELFCLASS32

Happy to do so; do you have a pet or do I have to compile this from source?

Kirk prepared version 2.8.1 for Fatdog64-521 and it's in your repository along with the dependencies. I think the dependencies may be OK, just Bibletime needs update. Other than Kirk's version, the later versions available are 32 bit, 01micko prepared 2.9.1 for Slacko, pemasu and jerimah also have version 2.9.1 for their distributions. I have copies of all of these.

Thanks,
Jim

Did you use Nvidia driver or some .pet?

Opera 11.64 put a folder in /usr/lib which I suspect had previously been a symbolic link to /usr/lib64 like in fd520

So I put a symbolic link to /usr/lib64/hardinfo in /usr/lib then Hardinfo worked again.
I had this problem earlier and thought I have fixed it. Can you please provide the link to the pet so that I can test it?


I didn't use a .pet, I installed using opera_11.64.1403_amd64.deb downloaded via the Opera website.

The reason is that things like web browsers and display drivers are updated every few weeks and it is not reasonable to expect Puppy developers to provide new .pets so often.

I don't mind a bit of manual fixing, if necessary. In this case I would just move the Opera folder to /usr/lib64 and reinstate the symbolic link.

If anyone can give me step by step instructions on how to install the ATI driver in fd6 using the .run file from AMD, I would be pleased to have a go.

I would prefer that or, even better, a script rather than a .pet so that I can install whichever version is currently the least buggy.

I know the 12.1 package required 32 bit libraries in order to install on a 64bit system. I don't know whether that is still true for 12.4
