Yeah, wheezypup's stability is pretty extraordinary, by comparison with some Puppies I've been testing lately. I wouldn't say it's "the most" (I want to keep my friends!), but it's certainly "one of the most" stable and reliable Puppies, way up there with the older Puppy 4.31 and dpup 4.85.

Many thanks, pemasu.

Hello, world!

Is it me or is it wheezypup ?

I get this error when I try to launch dosbox 0.73 (from the pet/sfs package i presented a couple of years ago) :

Quote:
dosbox: symbol lookup error: /usr/lib/libtinfo.so.5: undefined symbol: curscr


Any ideas? Any help welcome. Thanks in advance.

BFN.

Bonjour musher0, Smile

a) maybe the libtinfo.so.5 which seems to come embedded in the sfs package, might be not compatible with the present kernel or present libs;

you might try installing this:
http://packages.debian.org/wheezy/libtinfo5

b) this is given without warranty; maybe there will be other new error messages; then try just replacing the requested libs by the equivalent from debian/wheezy;

c) another solution: compile the wanted application on wheezy;

d) yet another one: Smile
dosbox-0.74 for debian wheezy is available here:
http://packages.debian.org/wheezy/dosbox
just install it + the listed dependencies

hope this helps
Charlie

Hello, charlie6.

Thanks for all the info. Actually, the solution was in two steps:

1) The libtinfo library in /usr/lib had the wrong link, along with a few others. They all pointed to libs in /usr/lib whereas the actual libraries were in /lib. So I corrected that.

2) I also removed my dosbox-0.73 and installed pemasu's own DOSBox-0.74 build at:
http://www.smokey01.com/pemasu/Pets/dosbox-static-0.74.pet

Now my old DOS software works like a charm.

On another subject, i386-linux-gnu in both folders links to itself. It is important, since changing its name wreaks havoc. But I don't know why or how it is important.

Bye for now.

It came around with Precise Puppy.

http://bkhome.org/blog/?viewDetailed=02752

woof 2createpackages processes .deb and .pet packages and there the multiarch .deb packages has been noticed:
Code:
  #120316 hack for multiarch, move libs to standard locations...
  if [ "$ARCHDIR" ];then #130112 change test from ARCHDIR. 130114 revert DISTRO_ARCHDIR_SYMLINKS==yes.
   if [ -d sandbox2/lib/$ARCHDIR ];then
    cp -a -f --remove-destination sandbox2/lib/${ARCHDIR}/* sandbox2/lib/
    sync
    rm -rf sandbox2/lib/${ARCHDIR}
    ln -s ./ sandbox2/lib/${ARCHDIR}
   fi
   if [ -d sandbox2/usr/lib/$ARCHDIR ];then
    cp -a -f --remove-destination sandbox2/usr/lib/${ARCHDIR}/* sandbox2/usr/lib/
    sync
    rm -rf sandbox2/usr/lib/${ARCHDIR}
    ln -s ./ sandbox2/usr/lib/${ARCHDIR}
   fi
   #120909 add /usr/bin...

    rm -rf sandbox2/usr/bin/${ARCHDIR}
    ln -s ./ sandbox2/usr/bin/${ARCHDIR}

Subject description: Chrome 26.0 work on Wheeze, fails on Squeeze
 

Looks like I'll need to switch from Squeeze to Wheezy sooner than I thought...

Chrome was updated to 26.0 and under Squeeze, it gives an error message due to libs that it expects to use, however Wheezy gives no problems.

The other program I depend on is the SecondLife Viewer, and they have a beta that also fails on Squeeze but works under Wheezy, also due to updated libs that it depends on.

The only things I'd like to have installed in the current dPup Wheezy as a standard distribution, is Frisbee and PupMenu as I've grown fond of them.

Satori. That was one reason that I have tried to build dpup wheezy. I am reluctant to try to update the libraries in dpup exprimo. The time just goes on....and not the all good old stuff will work anymore.

I suppose I will continue to improve dpup wheezy and I have noticed your wishes.

I have kept the build quite stripped so that bug reports would concentrate on essentials things.

I was looking for Seamonkey for Wheezy and came upon your post.

I am still looking for the Seamonkey PET if someone has a link.

Is there an alternative download location for the slimboat PET, please?

I cannot get the link provided to respond correctly (it wants to load an .exe file!).

Thanks!

Hello, edoc.

Actually, you don't need a pet package for seamonkey.

Just go to http://www.seamonkey-project.org/ and download the file indicated towards the top right. The site recognizes the system you're accessing it from, so it suggests the correct seamonkey version.

I would suggest downloading it to your /mnt/home directory so it won't bloat your pup_save file. Double-click on the seamonkey bz2 archive file you just downloaded and unpack. It will unpack in a "seamonkey" directory in /mnt/home.

Now that it is unpacked, go inside that seamonkey directory, and mark all with "ctrl-A". Make executable. You're ready to go !

Click on the "seamonkey" executable there. It'll take a few seconds to set its sub-dir in /root/.mozilla, and bingo! it's running. For convenience, you may want to bring the seamonkey file as an icon on your desktop.

Now wheezypup comes with firefox by default. DO NOT remove it, since it contains some libraries other Puppy programs use. (Or, if you know what you're doing, remove all EXCEPT the *.so files in that firefox directory.)

Happy monkey-ing ! Laughing (from one monkey to another!) Wink

PS. What is Slimboat?

It is supposed to be a cross-platform small, fast, & secure Web browser with unique features.

I could not tell from their Web site if they built on Mozilla, Chrome, or something else - or if it is an entirely new codebase (perhaps C++ & HTML5?).

Hello edoc,

Are you clicking the grey "download" button? That one should work OK.

Sometimes on the datafilehost page you also get a larger "Download Now" button which is an ad (which might try to download an .exe file).

There is a newer version out now (I did make an .sfs of it the other day but didn't post it up), but that one is still OK if you want to take a look. It seems to run reasonably well in Wheezy.

Problems with Slimboat generally in Puppy are that it won't run in Wary/Racy because glibc in that is too old and also Flash Player refuses to work in Slacko and I don't know why.
