I have assembled the Debian Wheezy version of the latest Skype 4.1.0.20 with all dependencies in a self-contained package for Wheezy Puppy. The Microsoft sign-in doesn't work and I have a couple of other questions. Please feel free to test and report. No warranty.

More information here:-

Thanks Pemasu. Do you by any chance know if that skype.conf file is doing anything in /etc/dbus-1/system.d ?

Dpup Wheezy 3.5.2.6 has been uploaded. It has been created by using stable Debian 7.0 Wheezy packages and latest woof2 at the time.

Kernel is the still the same 3.5.2. I havent noticed any demanding reasons to update the kernel yet. Kernel is non-PAE.

I have updated the Puppy apps since last build.
Rox right clicks have been updated.
Firefox comes with preinstalled Flashblock, Adblock, FireFtp and Simple Mail. You activate them or not at the first launch. They are still as activatable extensions inside Firefox.
Geeqie has been coupled with Mtpaint, Fotoxx and PupSnap for instant Imgur upload. Just right click the pic and choose Edit. You will find those couplings.
Libgtk-3.0 support, gtk-3.0 theme support.
Abiword 2.92 is one libgtk-3.0 dependent app. From the repo you will find more.
If you want bittorrent app, just download wheezy transmission, gtk or qt version, or transmission pet from puppy common repo.

There was quite a lot work because of several woof2 induced changes. Font xft.dpi change to 96 was not the least.

Nothing fancy. Just a little more than basic Puppy based on Debian Wheezy packages.

Flashplayer is not included. It seems that some of the comps need the old 10 version when the others like to have newer one. There is GetFlash in the Menu. Use it for downloading libflashplayer.

Libgl1-mesa-dri is the package for graphics spesific dri drivers. I intended to include them....but woof2 template stripped them to swrast_dri.so only. I might create it as pet and include them if you like to have dri drivers preincluded with 22 Mb extra fat.

There probably are still quirks here and bugs there. Now I would need testing, using, abandoning....hopefully not many..... and bug reports and feedback.

3526 exits from x during startup requiring me to type xwin to get a gui. 3525
never did that. They seem happy enough with the ATI Radeon video
hardware otherwise.

Looks like you did start including your wireless power management bug
workaround.

I kinda like the FF simple email feature. Thanks for waking me up to it Smile

I was wondering why FF 20 starts up so slowly until it occurred to me to turn
off adblock. Makes quite a difference.

This version has the latest woof2 provided xorgwizard, xorgwizard-cli, rc.sysinit, quicksetup changes...which has not been tested in build before.

The latest versions should provide more failsafe features. You can read from Barry`s blog more....

http://bkhome.org/blog2/?viewDetailed=00226

I noticed some small bugs immediately. Woof Rox-filer pet comes after rightclick-wheezy pet, which had my changes to the mime associations. So Rox-Filer did override my changes when 3builddistro installs the processed package folders. And...firefox is not coupled to the pdf opening.

You need to do this in console to have pdf`s open:
echo -e '#! /bin/sh\nexec firefox "$1"' > /root/Choices/MIME-types/application_pdf

About Simple Mail. I am not sure if the Simple Mail liked that I preinstalled it using the id code repackaging by the technique Iguleder showed us couple of years ago. Lets see. For me it seems to forget the account information. But it could be that I disabled it and the information was lost after enabling it. More feedback is needed. I have about 1 gigabyte stuff in my mail account. I did move the firefox folder to the hdd and symlinked it back before testing Simple Mail. It would have eaten my savefile immediately.

Running from live dvd with savefile.
Everything worked on first boot, sound,correct screen resolution,set
up wireless network with the network wizard.
I installed some applications in ppm, the only problem so far is the
Chromium browser won't run as root, I haven't tried Google Chrome yet.

This Wheezy 3.5.2.6 is working great so far.

Thanks Billtoo. I added the wheezy chromium run as root hack so that petget provides needed changes to the installed package. I will reupload the 5.3.2.6 version with these initial fixes.

And reupload has finished. Chromium now works from wheezy repo. You need to install the dependencies also.
Pdf documents now open to the Firefox inbuild pdf reader. In good and bad. I dont have much experience yet from it. And...it seems my Firefox repackaging failed. I dropped the firefox.png to the wrong folder. It should have gone to the /usr/share/pixmaps....and it went to the /usr/share/icons. You guess the rest. Well...I let people figure out how to fix the missing menu icon.....

Frugal install on the trusty old Athlon XP box.Everything working on initial boot but was necessary to add nouveau.noaccel=1 to the kernel line to fix the missing and/or faint icon problem.

JFYI - latest wheezy looks and feels good. All seems to work as expected and is extremely fast. Even now - is a very usable puppy.
Will post a report shortly.
Many thanks for this - very best regards - Ray

I told that I wont create own repo for wheezy pets. Well....I was wrong. I noticed that Smplayer-0.8.5 fixes the subtitles downloading, which is handy. And I wanted to check how does compiling goes using wheezy qt devel packages. It went well. Though there were 5 bins in /usr/bin which needed renaming. Debian renames bins there with-qt4 suffix....like qmake-qt4....and the source code does not understand that. Renaming or symling those 5 bins fixed the problem. qmake-qt4 and lrelease-qt4 are the important ones. Rename or symlink them qmake and lrelease.

So...If I compile something...I want to share it. I removed about 40 Mb stuff from smokey01.com and there is now equivalent room for other apps. This keeps my conscience in peace.

I compile apps when I notice that there is need.
