To run Pavrecord in Dpup Wheezy (3.5.2.11) I need to add the package libav-tools

Pavrecord depends on ffplay which is a symlink to avplay and both are in this package. I wonder if libav-tools should be included in any future releases?

I managed to compile a build of Audacity 2.0.5 in Dpup Wheezy. It is the latest release and much newer and smaller in size than the package offered by the Debian repos. I added libFLAC++ to enable FLAC support (without this the configure script just disables it automatically at build time). Import and export via ffmpeg is also enabled as well as mp3 export via lame. If anyone wants to give it a try you can download it from here:-

I compiled the latest JACK packages in Dpup Wheezy. They are jack-audio-connection-kit-0.124.1 and qjackctl-0.3.11 ( http://qjackctl.sourceforge.net )

Never used it myself but some people say it is very useful.

Firefox is running very slowly for me, so I removed it. I have an ancient pentium 2 with only 256 mb of ram. How do I change the default browser to opera or seamonkey?

@NoAlternative

The Puppy Package Manager (PPM) would be a safe recommended route to use for your PUP.

But, depending on which PUP distro you're using you may be butting up against your PC's RAM ceiling. Thus to continue with this older PC, you may have to switch to an early version of Puppy Linux for the performance you desire on it.

Hope this helps

Opera and Seamoney are running really fast on this machine. I just want to make one of them the default browser.

First thing to try is: Menu>Setup>Default Applications Chooser

Transmission BitTorrent client 2.60 compiled from source in Dpup Wheezy 3.5.2.11
There is a version in the Debian repo but it is older and drags in more unneeded bloat. Version 2.60 is the last version that works with GTK2. Anything later requires GTK3 and dependencies. I am no expert on torrenting but it seems to work with both .torrent files and magnet links.

Also just wanted to mention, for Wheezy users who have not seen this in the other thread, Dillo browser 3.0.3 which is compiled from source and newer than the one in the Debian repo. More details here:-

Important fix of security vulnerability (so they say).
I compiled OpenSSL Version 1.0.1g from source with:-
Code:
./config --prefix=/usr --openssldir=/etc/ssl shared

in Dpup Wheezy 3.5.2.11 and have uploaded the main and DEV .pet packages to:-
http://smokey01.com/OscarTalks
I guess Debian will release a package soon but I couldn't find one yet.
Meantime, feel free to try this one and report any findings.
MD5 checksums:-
openssl-1.0.1g-wheezy.pet = f5d8d80b4c2b4dc7a2c822fc58a506f4
openssl_DEV-1.0.1g-wheezy.pet = 49146ab5d03897f2dbd37d9c54f9e434

I installed successfully both of them in Precise Puppy 5.6.11 and in Dpup Wheezy 3.5.2.8.

Code:
# openssl version
OpenSSL 1.0.1g 7 Apr 2014

Code:
# openssl version -b
built on: Wed Apr  9 22:06:13 BST 2014

Many thanks for the packages and also for keeping this tread alive.

For security purposes it would be appreciated if you add MD5 checksums of the packages.

The movement that Ubuntu-based distribution changes to the Debian base is seen.
Ubuntu has intense evolution, and abnormality may occur by version up with the old model.
Debian does not force version update in comparison with it.
I think that this applies to environment using Puppy.
Because there was the matter of OpenSSL, I install and try Dpup Wheezy.

  • The Japanese support package was applicable to normalcy.
  • Puppy Package Manager fails in update. It is necessary to delete the item of deb-multimedia.org form ~/.package/DISTRO_COMPAT_REPOS to be improved.
  • The problem of OpenSSL can use the method to be improved with Debian package. Please apply a package of the i386:

https://packages.debian.org/en/wheezy/i386/openssl/download
https://packages.debian.org/en/wheezy/i386/libssl1.0.0/download

This is careful about the things that come to support a patch, not the latest edition
Correspondence of OpenSSL is a command:
Code:
# openssl version
OpenSSL 1.0.1e 11 Feb 2013
# openssl version -b
built on: Tue Apr  8 10:05:11 UTC 2014


  • The package of Chromium:

https://packages.debian.org/en/wheezy/i386/chromium/download
https://packages.debian.org/en/wheezy/i386/libspeechd2/download
https://packages.debian.org/en/wheezy/all/chromium-l10n/download (Language Files)

Hi just found dpup wheezy its is a good os.

I have 2 problems one being firefox other being downloading from repos.

FIREFOX
firefox wont run. I ran it in terminal and got a Bus Error, whatever that is.
i am not sure what I can do
my system specks are as follows.

Puppy Setup: Frugal install on hdd with 1gb save.
Device: HP Compaq nx9000
CPU: Mobile Intel(R) Celeron(R) CPU 2.40GHz
RAM: 448MB (assume actual 512mb)
Graphics: Advanced Mir=cro Devices [AMD] nee ATI RS200 [Radeon IGP330M/340M/350M

If having low ram is the issue i can upgrade to 1 or 2gb later.

on another note i have a version of firefox that runs by itself and does not need compiling it runs from its own folder outside the save file. Now I tested that and it runs no problem. so i wonder why the default one has problems.
also running firefox from other puppy os on my flash drive works ok.

PPM
the PPM updates ok the first time but i cant download apps. i tried to download sylpheed for my mail app but when downloading extra dependences I get the error they are not found in the repositories. i tried Pidgin, and several other apps and got the same result.

just want to query why. i updated ppm once and have internet setup so i dont understand.
