LazY Puppy
PostPosted: Wed 02 Dec 2015, 12:24    Post subject:

Hi.

What I'm currently working on is based on -of course- LazY Puppy, A vote for a modular use of Puppy Linux and Getting closer... or ...editing the initrd.gz

I am calling this: T.O.P.L.E.S.S. and it is possible to install .pet Files automatically after X appeared on the Screen - absolutely quiet, no confirmations needed!

Though, installing .pet Files is really different to the use of .sfs Modules. Since a .pet is just a .tar.gz (I think it is containing a .tar File plus a MD5 Sum File) it will replace/overwrite existing Files when installing -which is exactly extracting its Content to / - that's why a .pet Package needs to have the Linux File System Structure inside !!!

By a modified initrd.gz, two different Config Files and currently 11 different .sfs Modules given to each Puppy Linux and this all in combination with different boot menu entries in menu.lst you can have an almost unlimited Number of different configured Puppy Linux Systems just by using a single one, like tahr 6.0.2 etc.pp.

Boot a full featured Graphics Puppy for Imaging or a full featured Music Puppy for Audio Editing and Recording with the your favored Applications already loaded at boot up.

Use Menu Pipes to have directly Access to external Scripts, RoxApps, Portable Applications for Linux and Wine and start Wine Portable Applications just by clicking the .exe or even a Menu Entry targeting to the .exe etc.pp..

I have refined this stuff to a level where I can add code to a Script located at a sub-directory of the boot-directory which then will be executed at boot up in /etc.profile.local, so I can create new global Environment Variables like $PATH from code in an external File ! Very Happy

Examples of the SFS Modules given to Vivid beta2:

- binaries_vivid_beta2.sfs
- defaultapps_vivid_beta2.sfs
- designs_vivid_beta2.sfs
- documents_vivid_beta2.sfs
- icons_vivid_beta2.sfs
- langpack_vivid_beta2.sfs
- roxappstarters_vivid_beta2.sfs
- sfsplusrunscripts_vivid_beta2.sfs
- sfsplus_vivid_beta2.sfs
- variomenu_vivid_beta2.sfs
- windowmanager_vivid_beta2.sfs

Most of them do have re-build Scripts, so you can change Settings, rebuild the dependent/related SFS Module and it will update automatically at next boot to the new Settings.

I don't have any words to describe of how glad I'm currently with this Development, called: T.O.P.L.E.S.S.!

Probably in the beginning of 2016 I will come up with a first Version.

By now I have build T.O.P.L.E.S.S. for the following Puppy Linux Systems:

- Precise 5.7.1
- Slacko 5.9.3
- Slacko 64 5.9.1
- Tahr 6.0.2
- Tahr 64 6.0.2
- Unicorn 6.0
- Vivid beta2

Of course, the Slacko Systems are the less tested Systems and T.O.P.L.E.S.S. might need some improvement for these...

Note/Announcement: after publishing the first Version of T.O.P.L.E.S.S., all my future Developments will be done and supported strictly to the Context of T.O.P.L.E.S.S.!

And I will definitely QUIT!

No, not Puppy...

...remastering!

Yes!

I'm still using it as my daily OS.

Currently I'm working on some stuff to build temporarily LazY Puppy Systems without to remaster a original Puppy, just by using a config File and loading SFS Modules at boot up.

Probably there is something I will come up with in the beginning of 2016.

By now I can do this using precise, tahr, tahr64, unicorn and vivid Puppy.

All these Puppies are un-remastered and them are configurable just by the config File and the SFS Modules in use!

cool idea, RSH.


do you know if something similar is possible with installed pets? are there a limited number of folders whose contents change when programs are added that way? i ask because it would be nice to be able to, either through a script or drag-dropping, take your changes with you by copying over, for example, usr/share/applications, some library folder, maybe some file that read what pets got installed. are there many more that would need to be moved? is there a way to find out what program installation affected which folders? is that even necessary? would this even work?


thanks in advance for your musings on the issue.

LP is still interesting in 2015.

some thought about having Tcl/Tk fully working and run the SCIDB chess database.

Hello, the last saviour.

There is already

LP2_jre-1.7u13-i586.sfs (19-Feb-2013 01:46 33M)

and

Thanks,

Thank U very much.
I've seen those files for sometimes but never know that they are the new versions.
Maybe I'm confuse.

That did the trick.

Libre 3.3 Calc (Office) did complain about MD5 like you indicated, but had downloaded ok and worked ok (as per how you said)

I prefer to run without a savefile, so well suited.

Thanks RSH

PS :

For some fun, have a play with using higher compression when remastering. Its a lot (lot) slower to remaster, but the sfs size is usually quite a bit smaller

i.e. edit /usr/local/lazy_remaster/lp2_remaster_pupcd

and add :

#set compression
COMP=""
mksquashfs -help &>/tmp/mk #refuses to grep from stdout
grep 'xz' /tmp/mk &>/dev/null
[ "$?" = "0" ] && COMP="-comp xz"
ARCH="`uname -m`"
[ "$(uname -m|grep ^i)" ] && ARCH="`uname -m|cut -c3,4`"
case "$ARCH" in
86)AOPT="-Xbcj x86 -b 1024K" ;;
*)AOPT="" ;; #todo add other arches
esac
rm /tmp/mk
COPTIONS=""${COMP}" "${AOPT}""
#end set compression

then change line 782 from

squash / $WKGMNTPT/$rebuilddir/$PUPPYSFS -e /etc /proc /initrd /var /tmp /archive /mnt /root /$rebuilddir $ANOTHER_REMOVE $DIRHOME $DIRSYS $DIRLOST /$PUPPYSFS $SLDAEMON $MDAEMON $MWDAEMON $HAMREG #111012 end

to (i.e. add the ${COPTIONS} variable just before the -e parameter)

squash / $WKGMNTPT/$rebuilddir/$PUPPYSFS ${COPTIONS} -e /etc /proc /initrd /var /tmp /archive /mnt /root /$rebuilddir $ANOTHER_REMOVE $DIRHOME $DIRSYS $DIRLOST /$PUPPYSFS $SLDAEMON $MDAEMON $MWDAEMON $HAMREG #111012 end

That uses a much larger compression dictionary size, which can improve compression reasonably.

Wild guess - but you might see the .sfs drop from 172MB down to perhaps 150MB.

Too late for me to be staring to remaster tonight (early hours), but I might give that a try myself over the next few days and if so I'll let you know the result.

LazY Puppy is NOT made for a use from CD or DVD.

It is made especially for the use from USB HDD or USB Flash Drive.

Automated download of SFS Modules will download automatically to boot directory. Since you can't download to CD/DVD it has to fail completely!

Do a frugal install of LazY Puppy and mount the boot drive/partition before trying to download any SFS Module.

There maybe a message after download saying wrong md5sum and some programs won't start then. This is usual related to a new uploaded SFS Module. Just check if it has downloaded into boot directory correctly and try restarting the Program.

It should execute without any problems then.

Btw: LazY Puppy is also especially created for the use without a personal storage file (save file).

Downloaded, burnt to DVD, LiveCD booted to desktop ok.

Really tidy and well structured, highly impressed ...

BUT : menu loading of programs i.e. Libre Calc, prompts to download SFS, shows download progress and downloads 100% ok but then puts out a download failed message (red message box) for a few seconds and .... no program.

Tried creating a save file and booted that, but then said insufficient save file space can't download prompt.

Download LP2_JWildFire-1.63.sfs.
The LP2_jre-1.7u13-i586.sfs is predefined as dependent SFS for LazY Puppy and L.A.S.S.I.E. 002.

Currently there isn't any of my music and/or drum solos online available.

At the moment I don't have time to do any work on the weebly pages - maybe I'll decide to remove them later again...

Recently I'd found that GNome player need monitor with 24 bit driver, otherwise it won't work. I got problem with it > a year, what a fool I am. Sorry if somebody had reported this problem.

Never had any problem with gnome-player, since LazY Puppy is booting into 1600x1200 Pixel, 24bit on my computer (nvidia graphics adapter) and -I think- it wasn't reported so far.

JWildFire 1.6 was released, very good one. But it prefers Java V.7 not V.6.

Thanks for the good news. Downloaded and build a SFS Module, but can't upload probably before beginning of July 2014.

I'd read the intro in your Sara B whick is very impressive, but I think I read some kind of this document before. Do you use any template to create that intro? Otherwise you can be a writer.

No, I don't use any templates and yes, I do like writing from time to time. But I doubt, there would be any to be found on the web from my earlier online-life, when my username was ......

I'm awaiting for your new Puppy with KDE & Dolphin. Hope you will interest to make this release soon.
Thank you.

Yes, I'm awaiting this also, but it seems I'm not able to create a LazY Puppy with KDE and Dolphin - neither by knowledge nor by time.

Currently I do work on the next verion of L.A.S.S.I.E., but this still needs work and time.
