Subject description: Or a modern Hydrogen file that works...
 

I make music using Studio 33, and I'm a happy camper excepting the fact that Hydrogen breaks now and then (and keeping a clean studsave backup and reinstalling it when this happens, for some reason, doesn't solve the problem).

Hydrogen just snapped now and I cannot remember how I fixed it last time (shame on me, this time I'll document everything like a maniac); so now I'm trying to download the latest Hydrogen version from their site and install it.

It turns out that the Hydrogen developers have changed the install process, which now uses make, so I require the devx package. But none of the devx packages I've tried work.

When I check the puppy version using cat /etc/DISTRO_SPECS, this is what I get:

Code:
#One or more words that identify this distribution:
DISTRO_NAME='Puppy Studio'
#A three-digit numeric value, version number of this distribution:
[b]DISTRO_VERSION=330[/b]
#A two-digit numeric value, minor-version number of this distribution:
DISTRO_MINOR_VERSION=00
#The distro whose binary packages were used to build this distribution:
DISTRO_BINARY_COMPAT='ubuntu'
#Prefix for some filenames: exs: lupusave.2fs, lupu-520.sfs
DISTRO_FILE_PREFIX='stud'
#The version of the distro whose binary packages were used to build this distro:
DISTRO_COMPAT_VERSION='lucid'
#the kernel pet package used:
DISTRO_KERNEL_PET='linux_kernel-2.6.33.2-tickless_smp_patched-L3.pet'
#16-byte alpha-numeric ID-string appended to vmlinuz, lupu_520.sfs, zl520332.sfs and devx.sfs:
DISTRO_IDSTRING='l520110214125546'
#Puppy default filenames...
#Note, the 'SFS' files below are what the 'init' script in initrd.gz searches for,
#for the partition, path and actual files loaded, see PUPSFS and ZDRV in /etc/rc.d/PUPSTATE
DISTRO_PUPPYSFS='stud_330.sfs'
DISTRO_ZDRVSFS='zl520332.sfs'


It says DISTRO_VERSION=330, but I thought Studio 33 was based on Lupu, right? So I don't have a clue of what's the devx.sfs file I need. I've tried different packages I found in the forum or had around:

lupu_devx_511.sfs
devx_slacko_5.3.sfs
devx_slacko_5.5.sfs

None of them work, some act as if devx was not installed, others say cmake cannot work because it hasn't been properly installed.

The closest to success was devx_slacko_5.3.sfs, which stops saying that cmake requires some abstruse library, but at least recognizes the existence of devx and starts the compiling process...

Could someone direct me to a devx version that works, or a modern Hydrogen package? It has to be version 095 or upper, because most of my Hydrogen drums were created with Hydrogen 095, but the built in version in Studio 330 is former, and Hydrogen does not have backwards compatibility, so when I try to open them with the old Hydrogen I get blank drum files (I moved to H095 because something else that I don't remember didn't work... Sad )

Please don't tell me to move to the superbly gorgeous and incredibly modern latest version of Studio, it would take me lots of tinkering to make everything work comfortably, I just want a quick fix to get Hydrogen back on track, and start cranking out music again ASAP...

Try the devx from slacko 5.7. I have some vague idea that Studio was based on the latest Slacko.

Otherwise, contact lowtech on the forum who made it.
