PostPosted: Wed 06 Aug 2014, 11:44    Post_subject: Portable Wine under Carolina  

Hi Geoffrey & All,

Just in case no one has previously mentioned it, shinobar's wine-portable-1.6.2-2-p4.version works under Carolina 1.2. However, the setup instructions given on the portable-wine thread, http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=755297#755297 require adjustment since Carolina does not include rox right-click procedures. To set up portable-wine, after downloading and decompressing the tgz, mount the drive/partition --preferably your home partition-- onto which portable-wine has been decompressed. Carolina will see it as a folder. Click the folder to open it. Then click the script named "Register." This will install a couple wine programs on the utilities menu. [Edit: Or make life simple>Install rox-filer via Puppy Package Manager. Register will appear on its right-click menu.] Thereafter, you can invoke wine from one of the menu items, or by clicking an "exe" file. If the latter, you may have to select "run command" and type wine.sh --note the ".sh"-- the first or each time. For applications I frequently use, I find it convenient to create scripts in /root/my-applications/bin along with a desktop file in /usr/applications with an associated icon so as to access the application from the menu or a launcher on an xfce panel. For further information regarding such scripts, see the wine-porable thread and my previous posts regarding employment of programs in external folders.
Among the advantages of portable-wine are:
vis-a-vis pets: they do not consume space in your Save-File;
Unlike SFSes, wine-portable is decompressed, thus less taxing on your computer's ram and CPU,
Like SFSes, the same "installation" --including the same XP programs--can be used by multiple puppies,
And --although it may just be my impression or because of improvements in the wine applications on which portable-wine is based-- by installing applications into wine-portable's "Program Files" folder --i.e. wine-data/drive_c/Program Files-- some XP programs which previously didn't run, now do.

Happy computing,

mikesLr

PostPosted: Wed 06 Aug 2014, 20:01    Post_subject: Carolina -- What's in a Name  

A couple of years ago, when carolina was first published, I was slightly miffed as it appeared that its creators had strayed from the tradition of naming Puppys after a breed of dogs. I explore and multi-boot many Pups, and as a way of reminding myself, when it matters, which Pup I'm currently using I frequently will use as wallpaper a picture in which the relevant breed is represented. It only occurred to me today to google “Carolina dog”. I was surprised to discover that there was such a breed, albeit, not recognized by the American Kennel Club. The attached jpg shows what it looks like. If it seems familiar, that's because it's other name is American Dingo.
It seems that until recently we didn't know it existed. It was found living in packs in the wilds of Carolina (and Georgia). As it retains several characteristics of “wild dogs” found elsewhere, it is found in a region where Amerindians had settled before Europeans first set foot upon this continent, and its DNA suggests ancient origins, I'd hypothesize that it (along with the Chihuahua) may have arrived here with the first humans. A rugged and versatile breed, it is considered only partially domesticated. It is not a breed for everyone. But under competent leadership the Carolina gets along well with man, other dogs and even cats.
Whether by design or serendipitous, I now think the naming of this Pup was appropriate.

I'm curious as to which version you installed, all the rc's and 1.x linas have Firefox as the default browser.

@edoc

I've compiled the latest Qupzilla version 1.6.6, this still has the certificate warning, just add them, should be fine, it's just a nuisance.

Made a pet of the flashplayer dependencies,install Qupzilla first then run the flash_dep_qupzilla.pet, it will add the files

libnspr4,so
libnss3.so
libnssutil3.so
libplc4.so
libplds4.so
libsmime3.so
libssl3.so

then moves the /usr/bin/qupzilla binary to /usr/lib/qupzilla/qupzilla, creates a new script in /usr/bin called qupzilla which loads the path to the dependencies.

Don't install this if you have firefox or seamonkey installed, remember to install flashplayer too,

Hope it works ok for you.

We got two of these refurbished HP Pavilion g7's to use as desktop pc replacements & they have worked well - and were cheap.

They are 64 bit so they may not meet your need.

I need a new machine and it's coming up to fathers day so I'm dropping hints for this http://aldi.medion.com/md8239/au/?refPage=medion

Comes with win8, but that can go and I'll buy a win7, I have no idea as to whether puppy will play ball with the ati video, on even boot on it.


"AMD A8-7600 accelerated quad-core processor With 3.10 GHz, up to 3.80 GHz with AMD turbo-core technology and a 4 MB Cache with AMD Radeon™ R7 graphics
8 GB DDR3 memory with 1866 MHz Dual Channel
"

Anyone have thoughts on this as a replacement PC?

I've patched skype version 4.2.0.13 so that it appears as 4.3.0.37, it now logs in, please test.

skype-4.2.0.13-lina-patched.pet 8.4M without QT suitable for Carolina.

skype-4.2.0.13-lina-patched.sfs 26M with QT suitable for Carolite.

I now have a new pc, Carolina doesn't find the wireless or the eth0, I'll continue to use the Lenovo Thinkcentre I have, it's a single core 2ghz with 2gigs of ram, should be good enough to compile with.

Looks like a feature-rich CPU and system. Should handle all of your 2014 and beyond needs as you envision.

BTW what kinds of monitor(s) will it connect? HDMI? TV?

Cheers!
