Glad to hear (read) this. The credits are going also to panoss who did find the final solution to get Lazarus and FPC working in Puppy.

Btw: i did test Lazrus and FPC in 4 or five different puppies. Lucid, Puppy Studio (lucid based), Slacko, Wary...

It works and works and works and works...

But only in LazY Puppy you will get the menu item and (did you see that?) the full documentation inside the guides menu!

Quote:
1 ) Tried booting into Lazy Puppy, but the result was 'Kernel Panic' as soon as it accessed my sda7/LazyFolder/pupsave file.

Shocked I did never ever run into kernel panic. Shocked

Quote:
2 ) Booted into 3HD and:
a ) Deleted the sda7/LazyFolder/pupsave file

Do the following, please:

Create file 'lazysave-none.2fs' or lazysave-none.3fs' related to what you have chosen as sav efile (2fs, 3fs) inside directory of your save file. After this LazY Puppy thinks you have two different save files and gives option to choose save file at boot up. Then you can choose '0' for no save file and create a new save file when rebooting. So you can create different save files for different uses. if needed.

Quote:
Thank you RSH for the advice. It seems very important to put the downloaded SFS files into the frugal directory before installing them.

I did never try this, but if you are entering the whole path of the sfs files via LazY Puppy Preferences GUI, then it should work even when the sfs files are outside lazy_528.sfs directory.

I do use my LazY Puppy on 4 different computers. I always boot them from usb stick and do have all the files on usb stick. Only my Music Computer runs LazY Puppy using save file. On every other Computer i run LazY Puppy without save file to 100%.

I did optimize it as good as i was able for to use it that way.

This confirms that simple GUI executables made in Lazarus need no external files/libraries distributed with them to work - they are standalone.

Yes, they are standalone. They even should run and work in ubuntu, open suse etc.

Would it be useful to you if I tested other parts of Lazy Puppy and reported back here? If so, let me know if you need any particular information about my testing environment, and how to extract it in postable form.

I am not a linux 'expert' - simply a new (ex-windows) user.

I am not a linux expert as well.

Please use LazY Puppy just like you want to and (maybe) be happy with LazY Puppy. If you are running into a problem, you can post here and inform me. That would be ok. Cool

But there is one favor you could do to me: Send me as much as you can of you 'not classified' pascal sources (from time to time). I am sure it would help a lot to get my pascal knowledge transformed from ST Pascal plus to Lazarus/FPC. This would be very nice! Smile

If you are interested, i could upload my 'RSHs DTP Suite', programmed in ST Pascal plus that contains a DTP Musical Score Editor with integrated Text Editor , Image Editor and Script Language. This one has about 75.000 Lines of code.

I always do dream of re-inventing this one for puppy... Cool

Success!
Here's what I did:

1 ) Tried booting into Lazy Puppy, but the result was 'Kernel Panic' as soon as it accessed my sda7/LazyFolder/pupsave file.

2 ) Booted into 3HD and:
a ) Deleted the sda7/LazyFolder/pupsave file
b ) Moved all the SFS files to sda7/LazyFolder/

3 ) Rebooted into Lazy Puppy successfully

4 ) Set prefs in startup dialog (English UK)

5 ) Installed PETS 'lazy 528 prefs en fix' and also 'Lazy 528 new Quickinstall'

6 ) Lazy SFS Direkt load 'Lazy 528 Devx' (no problem installing)

7 ) Lazy SFS Direkt load 'Lazarus and Free Pascal' (no problem installing)

9 ) Started up Lazarus, and wrote a quick GUI 'Hello World' app (form, buttons and Messagedialog)

The 'Hello World' app ran and compiled successfully - hurrah!

Thank you RSH for the advice. It seems very important to put the downloaded SFS files into the frugal directory before installing them.

==edit== I dragged the 'Hello World' executable to the desktop and it stayed there. I was also able to right-click the desktop link and drag an icon to it. It worked direct from the desktop.

==edit1== I copied the helloworld executable into a different partition, and rebooted into Slacko. In slacko, I clicked the executable and 'Hello World' worked perfectly.

This confirms that simple GUI executables made in Lazarus need no external files/libraries distributed with them to work - they are standalone.

==edit2== In Slacko, I switched window manager from JWM to OpenBox. HelloWorld worked fine. In Openbox, the dialog is centred, whereas in JWM the dialog is top left - a minor difference.

Fantastic! I am now a happy Pascal Linux proto-programmer,. Thanks RSH for making it possible, and above all - easy.

I have made an ISO based on Three Headed Dog and pursuing the concept of Lazy Puppy. All sfs's and its programs do work - except open shot. Open shot misses all librarys. I did install most of the Lazy Puppy sfs's and made a remaster. It is about 650 mb and works fine.



thanks for the help, is the 5.29 ISO going to be available to download - I think the newer kernel may be better on my computer.

I hope you will be satisfied using LazY Puppy and Lazarus. Smile

Oh no, no, no. Smile

Please:

1. Copy all the sfs files into directory of lazy_528.sfs.
2. Or do use the LazY Puppy Preferences GUI in the LazY Puppy Menu to set the path's of the sfs files

I do use it the 1. way all the time and there is just one click after starting wanted sfs file via SFS-direkt load. Never had any problem.

minesadorada wrote:
I could only load 6 sfs files before LazyPuppy complained.

This limitation is a lucid puppy based limitation. I did already several times use all ten sfs files (without pupsave) and there were no problems at all. Smile

Do use the LazY528-devx4.sfs or the LazY528-devx4-GMB271.sfs to work with Lazarus.

Exclamation You might need the BugFix for the Preferences GUI if downloaded LazY Puppy earlier at mediafire! Exclamation

Go to the LazY Puppy Info & Update Center. The Link is in almost every post of mine.

PostPosted: Thu 16 Feb 2012, 10:09    Post subject: Quick Report

A quick report:

Posting this via a frugal install of LazyPuppy. Hard disk installation to a spare ext3 partition/folder was fine - no problems. I added it to menu.lst manually. I am mainly interested in LazyPuppy to program in Pascal.

First Impressions:
The SFS-direkt load needs some work. I had to put all the downloaded sfs files in /root so the loader would see them. When I tried to install, I could only accept the default copy location. Choosing 'RAM' or 'NOCOPY' gave errors. I could only load 6 sfs files before LazyPuppy complained.

I fired up Lazarus, and wrote a quick 'Hello World' application, but it would not run. I need to know the correct linker options for Lazy-Lazarus i guess.

Most of the other menu applications worked fine.

Hardware: Gigabyte EP45T-DS3R, 4GBRAM, Quad core Intel 2.8GHz, GeForce9800.

RSH, have you tested CodeTyphnon PET I have sent you? Is there any chance to solve cross-compiling from Linux to Windows?


Yes, i have downloaded and tested CodeTyphon. The .pet is too big to install on my computer (not enough ram and swap). The sfs that i did build did not work.

So actually i am unable to do any work on this. I will post a link to the folder at mediafire at the lazarus thread. Maybe panoss returns and will be able to install CodeTyphon and do some work on this. Sad

Hi RSH, I've loaded your Audio SFS on music2go pup. Works rather well (just tweaked the menu). The only problem is Bristol GUI AKS and Mixer are the only working virtuals - if I click on another a window the correct size opens, but then close Twisted Evil

any ideas?


I have made an ISO based on Three Headed Dog and pursuing the concept of Lazy Puppy. All sfs's and its programs do work - except open shot. Open shot misses all librarys. I did install most of the Lazy Puppy sfs's and made a remaster. It is about 650 mb and works fine.

All menu entries of the LazY Puppy sfs files are edited to get all the programs into the LazY Puppy sfs menu. You have to edit these files to get the audi programs into the multimedia menu.

To use bristol do use jack audio connection. Start jack first and after starting bristol synthesizer connect the synthesizer via jack to the system. Use the synthesizers at the jack tab.

BTW. The jack entries inside the LazY Audio SFS are only .desktop files. Jack itself is installed in LazY Puppy. So you have to install jack audio first - if not already done.

Hi RSH glad you're back.

Should you still be on that expensive gprs connection this might be a hint ?

Here in Holland we have a lot of -free- wifi connections in libraries (Bibliotheken ohne Abonnement) und restaurants (Mac Donalds, Raststaette ?).

Taking it that Kassel is a relative big town, I presume you have them too. Why not give it a try. A cup of coffee or a glass of beer is probaly much cheaper than 1 minute on gprs (Aldi talk ?).


I am glad to be back with LazY Puppy too. But i have had to make a break again (the last 5 days). I did surely work too much between joining the forum and releasing LazY Puppy. And after that as well.

So the menu project is still running but needs time to release.

Regard the Internet Conniction - i do use now a cheaper solution for general use of internet. Only for uploads i have to use the expensive one - because of its speed.

I do use a desktop pc with most internal hard disk. It is not possible to me to work on my projects and use the internet outside home. Earlier i sometimes use internet cafe but in fact of one visitor did download illegal files the internet cafe owner was sentenced to pay a penalty about 5000,- Euro high. Now he did close all possibilities to download files from anywhere. Even my own files stored at mediafire are now unable to download.

This internet cafe has been the only location where i could boot my LazY Puppy to work online. Crying or Very sad

Great news, got on line using LazY ; -)

Using Network Wizard ; -)

Regard Bristol GUI - most of the virtualisations don't seem to work. But I'm probably not setting it up correctly.

BTW you can improve the font rendering in firefox by un-commenting-out some code in /etc/fonts/local.conf

Code:
<?xml version="1.0"?>
<!DOCTYPE fontconfig SYSTEM "fonts.dtd">
<!-- /etc/fonts/local.conf file for local customizations -->
<fontconfig>
<!--  Enable sub-pixel rendering -->
   <match target="font">
      <test qual="all" name="rgba">
         <const>unknown</const>
      </test>
      <edit name="rgba" mode="assign"><const>rgb</const></edit>
   </match>

Unfortunately the dictionaries are old.

I forgot to post my improved version of Abispell
dictionaries. The important thing about it is that
it fixed the German dictionary which I hadn't packaged properly.

By the way if Geany is recompiled to accept
the plugin 'Spellchecker' then it can
be used as a simple word processor. See this thread
