Code:
# git --version
git version 1.8.4


That's from slacko which is quite a bit older than tahr.

You need to uninstall the version you have and delete the profile, then install the devx (sfs file) which will have git included, as well as all the other goodies needed for compiling .. (re)

Yes they are.
I just repeated your commands and show no issues.
What is the filesystem that your local woof-CE folder resides on?

BTW are these 2 affected files showing as symlinks in your repo?

this is the version I am having in devx sfs:

Code:

root# git --version
git version 1.9.1


I have unistalled previously installed via PPM (ver 1.7)

I will take some time to make a new personal file cuz i have to get the amd drivers for this system.

Thanks a lot for the help.

These are not symlinks:

Code:


root# ls
howl  woof-CE
root# cd woof-CE
root# ls -la woof-code/rootfs-skeleton/etc/wvdial_options/APN-VirginBroadband
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 5 Apr 20 15:44 woof-code/rootfs-skeleton/etc/wvdial_options/APN-VirginBroadband

-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 637 Apr 20 15:44 woof-code/rootfs-skeleton/usr/local/lib/X11/mini-icons/mini-Desktop.xpm



I have vfat file system formatted with puppy linux installer (from CD).

Thanks a lot for help.

vfat does not support symlinks (and many other things).
Actually I'm surprised that you have only these problems (or maybe you have more Wink ).
Clone the repos in an ext2,3,4 file system or your savefile if it is big enough and see how this goes.

Hmmm... Yes , it doesn't it ran perfectly on ext4 filesystem

root# ls
bin  lib  test  test2

It had the same problem when I cloned in vfat filesystem:

I suppose there is a lot to learn when changing your programming enviroment from windows PC to linux. I didn't did development in linux much . My home netbook/laptops was only on linux . In major developements I was habituated in Windows PC .

I am considering shifting to quirky

my savefile is not so big , while running script for patches it gets full.Will this work instead of a save file ??

I have created a 50 mb file on vfat filesystem like this:

Code:

root# pwd
/mnt/home/git
root# ls
pixie-online
root# dd if=../../../../dev/zero of=howling.4fs bs=1M count=50
50+0 records in
50+0 records out
52428800 bytes (52 MB) copied, 0.256032 s, 205 MB/s


Then made the file as ext4 partition like this:

Code:

root# mkfs -t ext4 howling.4fs
mke2fs 1.42.9 (4-Feb-2014)
howling.4fs is not a block special device.
Proceed anyway? (y,n) y
Filesystem label=
OS type: Linux
Block size=1024 (log=0)
Fragment size=1024 (log=0)
Stride=0 blocks, Stripe width=0 blocks
12824 inodes, 51200 blocks
2560 blocks (5.00%) reserved for the super user
First data block=1
Maximum filesystem blocks=52428800
7 block groups
8192 blocks per group, 8192 fragments per group
1832 inodes per group
Superblock backups stored on blocks:
   8193, 24577, 40961

Allocating group tables: done                           
Writing inode tables: done                           
Creating journal (4096 blocks): done
Writing superblocks and filesystem accounting information: done


woof-ce is around 25 mb I suppose so this much space should do, but is it mountable on puppy linux ? And how could I mount it ? also is it the correct method of making ext4 file system in a file as puppy linux makes it for a save file ?

Thanks for any help in advance Smile

Under the "Utility" menu there is a "Resize personal storage file" app Wink

You file generation looks OK.
To mount ii make a folder somewhere, in /mnt for example and just mount it.
If you want to auto load it, either add a line in your /etc/fstab file or in /etc/rc.d/rc.local or make a little script and place it in /root/Startup.
Resizing your savefile would be simpler though. Just keep in mind that VFAT can support up to 4GB (save)files

Yes, My save file is already too big... So I was making different partition for all the docs/repos

If you really want to work on linux I would recommend a linux partition on a hard drive. If not and have a USB-3 machine, get an 8-32GB USB-3 stick, reformat it with ext4 without journal running "mkfs.ext4 -O ^has_journal" (do not repartition it) and the use a "savefolder" that has no size limitations. You can do that with USB-2 but is considerably slower.

I might do that, you see, on one hand my save file is not so big to accomodate all the docs and repos, on the other hand it is really big nearly close to 4GB which is it's limitation. I have a empty harddisk with a old ntfs partition, but, my system has overheating problems, I have changed the thermal paste, and also cut off it's DWM wire so the fan runs at full speed. Even then it is overheating , (around 90 deg c). I know that puppy linux is always great rescue when stuck in these kind situations when you want to make some old harware work again. So I am using puppy linux on this system. I might reformat the hardisk on ext partition, but it really depends. whether it will crash from overheating while reformat or not (currently it stores some of my files). Also I have tested some formats/installation of puppy linux on very old desktops and bios it doesn't works on all (tried chameleon and FDD format as well) so I have to check into all those before I move all my developements to linux (puppy linux)

Hi

If I want to have a local directory with some updated pets which I want Woof-CE to use instead of the pets in the online repositories ..... how do I configure Woof-CE to do this?

Thanks
peebee

I think that a) you change the specs file to the pet version that you want to use and b) put it in your local pets folder.

Hi mavrothal

The specs file (DISTRO_PKGS_SPECS) only contains the generic name of the package - the pet file that then provides the package is found dynamically by various searches in the Packages-puppy-*-official database files.

At least thats how I think it works lol

Right. So you change the version of the pet there.
ie in woof-distro/x86/ubuntu/Packages-puppy-precise-official, change

I think... Smile
