lp-dolittle - you are missing a decade and a half of discourse. I retired twenty years ago and never a coder, I leave that to BK*. I don't use Puppies as mainline DT distros, mainly for demos, diagnosis and repair, rarely ever installed, hence the desire for .iso as well as .img, There's piles of excellent machinery out there that doesn't merit landifill for another decade. If you want all-signing dancing, get yourself a major Linux distro with all the built-in drivers, extensively tried & tested, abandon the devil's OS completely. Professionals probably best off with RH.

*Nota Bene his latest blast of today's date.

Ah, found the cause. Quirky Beaver 8.7.1 has the Busybox 'fdisk' applet, not the full one from 'util-linux'. The busybox one is less functional, stuffs things up.

And I know why it is missing. It is the old story of the Debian developers playing musical chairs with packages. They love to split a package up into lots of smaller ones. Worse, they keep changing the split-up.

In Xenial Xerus, 'fdisk' is in the 'util-linux' DEB, however, in Bionic Beaver they have taken it out into its own package, a DEB named 'fdisk'.

I am on the lookout for this, but missed this one.

Solution, click "petget" at top of screen to run the Package Manager, search for "fdisk" and you will find it in the "ubuntu-bionic-main" repo. No missing deps, so just install it. I am doing this as I type this report....

Yep, ran "fdisk --help" in a terminal, now it is the full version. You should be good to go for using the Quirky Installer.

Have an ongoing problem with SNS (Simple Network Setup), sometimes Internet connection fails, for both wireless and wired, even though the network is up and the dhcp server is running.

I have been reading the man page for 'dhcpcd', it seems, that it may or may not daemonize (run in the background) immediately, before writing to /etc/resolv.conf

There is a "--waitip" option, to make sure that it writes to /etc/resolv.conf before backgrounding, however, I decided not to use that option, instead to put in some tests.

I have modified /usr/local/simple_network_setup/rc.network and sns. Previously only had "sleep 0.1" after running dhcpcd, now will wait longer if necessary.

PostPosted: Tue 25 Sep 2018, 15:11    Post subject: Libreoffice writer full screen mode
Subject description: You can't start full screen mode (frugal install)
 

While using the Libreoffice writer I noticed that you can not enlarge it to full screen mode by clicking on the symbol.
I am using the frugal mode with 1280x1024 screen and nvidia NV96 graphics card.

I fixed the problem by moving the window up to the top and enlarging it to the right and the bottom. While you click on full screen mode now, closing it and doing a frugal save everything will be fine at the next boot.

Rem: Calc and Base come in full screen mode by default.

Greetings,
FeodorF

sorry, but can't find the devx for 8.7.1 to do some tests.

It can't seem to find the http://distro.ibiblio.org/quirky/quirky6/amd64/packages/pet_packages-beaver/ directory.

Ah, thanks, I was just following the instructions in http://distro.ibiblio.org/quirky/quirky6/amd64/releases/beaver-8.7.1/release-beaver64-8.7.1.htm and as it failed I looked around there, hadn't thought of the easy sfs directory.

Now i'm home again, I am looking forward of getting up to date with easy and start a first sourcery packagebuild.

I did a lot of script reading while away. It will of course fail, but I should get some idea of if the system is actually puppy compatable or not.

I moved an SDHC card install from my Acer laptop to an older HP desktop
pc that has a dual monitor setup.
I wanted to compare running kodi on the hp to an earlier install of
Bionicpup64 7.9.4 beta tested on the hp.
The screenshot shows the left hand monitor on the hp streaming video in
kodi, gkrellm shows resource usage is low, Bionicpup64 7.9.4 beta
showed resource usage much higher, 97%.

Quirky 8.7.1 beaver64 wins that competition, my test of Bionicpup64
7.9.4 beta is posted in the Puppy Projects thread.

That looks pretty! How did you code it?
