PostPosted: Sun 25 Nov 2012, 12:16    Post subject:  ArchPup - Puppy based on Arch Linux
Subject description: UPDATE:: December 7, 2012
 

New version 12.12: See here http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=671851#671851

UPDATE: December 7, 2012
This is new and I think final update for version 1204.
Changes in 1204-2:
- udev upgraded to version 175, which should fix problems with loading
firmware modules. (Thanks mavrothal for help with compiling and testing
udev package for this release)
- Fixed SFS file association, and it's now possible to load SFS modules
simply by clicking on them. For info about tested SFS files see here
- Added packer so you can search and install packages from Arch User Repository (AUR).
Before you can use packer it is necessary to run this: update-ca-certificates
- Geany upgraded to latest git-nightly.
- Added packages in arch-base (krb5, libtasn1, p11-kit) required by cups.
- New wallpaper...
- See how it works - ArchPup review. Thanks Icyos!

Changes in version 1204-1:
- New graphical dialogs for creating savefile and changing wallpaper.
- Kernel is upgraded to version 3.6.8, and compiled with same config as
in Puppy precise, except KMS that was disabled to prevent screen flicker during boot.
- Added pet2sfs script which converts all pet packages in current directory
to SFS module. Second argument you pass will be name of created SFS file,
e.g. pet2sfs games, will extract pet packages and create games.sfs.
- Support for loading 20 additional SFS modules.
- Pwireless2, wireless_tools, wpa_supplicant for connecting to wireless networks.

pacman -Syu

To search for package use this:
Code:
pacman -Ss pkgname

Concerning the save file, in clearer terms :

Code:
#!/bin/sh
# /usr/local/bin/create_archsave_128M.sh
# by musher0
# Derived from : http://208.109.22.214/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=209951&sid=7e57aa29e5bc8c08c94a9291dc5c613b#209951
# For simargl's archpup 1204
# Will create an initial "pup save" file of 128 usable Megs in /mnt/home.
# Change the "home" parameter below to sda1, sda2, etc., if it is more suitable for your disk(s).
####

dd if=/dev/zero of=/mnt/home/archsave.2fs bs=1k count=131000
mke2fs -q -m 0 -F /mnt/home/archsave.2fs

### end ###


You can either create a file under the name
/usr/local/bin/create_archsave_128M.sh
and copy and paste the above code in it,
OR
download and unpack the attached in /usr/local/bin.

Don't forget to make the file executable.
*There is no ROX in this ArchPup, so... enter a console and type:
Code:
cd /usr/local/bin
chmod a+rwx create_archsave_128M.sh


Have a wonderful day! Very Happy

Thanks for reply Very Happy

Inside root folder you have hidden file .start. To change keyboard layout replace:
setxkbmap bs &
with
setxkbmap us &

And create_archsave_128M.sh should go to /usr/local/bin cause ~/my-applications/bin
is not in PATH.

Did you try pacman?

yes this

The GUI has a really nice feel to it, I cant explain why, its superior to the normal puppy GUI's Surprised

After doing pacman -Su
and pacman -Sy

I tried installing firefox just to test out pacman, it seemed to be missing a lot of libraries that it was trying to find locally

like: var/local/pacman/dhcp

for example,

So it couldnt install most apps


I have an intel graphics card...
When I first started it up tit tried to set a video mode
and seemed to fail, then it set another video mode which im assuming is vesa, a lot of letters are missing from words in thunar
the right click menu has no letters or words whatsoever so I cant change the video settings.

I guessed that shutdown would be on the bottom of the right click menu and I was right luckily, if you fix the bugs this could be one of the best puppies.

My pleasure!

Thanks for the info about the keyboard.

I'll change my script, but it might be a good idea to include ~/my-applications/bin in the $PATH anyway. I know I put a lot of personal bash scripts there and it's very handy to have ~/my-applications/bin in the Puppy's $PATH.

Finally, no, I haven't tried pacman yet.

BFN.

If you have troubles with pacman try this:

pacman -Sf pkgname (force overwrite)
pacman -Sd pkgname (ignores the versioning of dependencies)

for example udev is version 176 which is older than arch's default 182 and it can
create unresolvable dependencies problem.

I managed to restart the xserver with the right click menu and the graphics work now

I installed firefox with just one error: using pacman -Sf firefox
gtk_update_icon_cache command not found

Chromium had a missing dependency

BTW how do you paste text into a terminal?
