Hi, is there an equivalent to puppy's "32-bit compatibility sfs" for BionicDog64?

Thanks.


Like mike said, adding 32 bit architecture,

dpkg --add-architecture i386
apt-get update

but you will facing a problem with overwriting /usr/share/doc and /usr/share/man. I resolve this by deleting all inside those folder. it's true this will use some space, but not much

Thanks, yes, for more clarity, if you get that "trying to overwrite" errors (or something like that) do not remove the man and doc folders in /usr/share, remove the files inside, this way:
Code:
find /usr/share/doc -type f -exec rm -f {} \;
find /usr/share/man -type f -exec rm -f {} \;
find /usr/share/info -type f -exec rm -f {} \;
find /usr/share/gnome/help -type f -exec rm -f {} \;
find /usr/share/gtk-doc -type f -exec rm -f {} \;

*** BionicDog 64-bit Cinnamon version ***


I finally got around to installing this Cinnamon version to a USB drive a while back, and wanted to mention a few things I had made a note of - before I forget (yet AGAIN... oops... Rolling Eyes );

1) While booted/running from the BionicDog Cinnamon liveCD, I installed to USB stick using the included installer, pointing to the downloaded .iso file on my laptop's mounted hard drive. But - the finished stick wouldn't boot - throwing an error along the lines of "Cannot read 01-filesystem.squashfs - corrupted module?"... or something close to that.

I booted up a Puppy CD, mounted the BionicDog Cinnamon USB stick and deleted the 01-filesystem.squashfs - then mounted the downloaded BionicDog Cinnamon .iso and copied/pasted its 01-filesystem.squashfs back over to the original's location on the USB stick. It now boots fine! Multiple boots, savefile/changes .dat created... all good.

So indeed, it appears as if the 01-filesystem.squashfs may be being corrupted during USB installation, somehow...?

2) The .desktop file for "Create Savefile" was missing - I just copied over one from my StretchDog mklive build (from the /usr/share/applications/ directory) - all now works, and icon shows and launches the program from the menu.

I've used Cinnamon in various distros in the past, and it's quite pleasantly surprising how fast and responsive this Dog feels in comparison - very cool!! Cool

Hi Moat,

Lest I set off on the wrong tack you wrote:

Would I be correct in assuming that you started by burning the downloaded ISO image to optical media?
If so, what OS and burning app did you use to do that?

Yikes - it was a while ago so I'm not entirely sure, but yes - burned the .iso image to a CD, mostly likely using Brasero on Ubuntu 18.04 Mate.

Second most likely would have been using burncdcc on Windows 7. But I'm fairly confident it was the former - Brasero/Ubuntu Mate.

I also do recall doing multiple re-boots to the BionicDog Cinnamon CD and subsequent re-installs to the USB flash drive - but all to no avail and throwing the same error until I tried the direct-copy of the main .sfs to USB, as described above. Iso checksums were OK, AFAIRC, too. (edit - yup - just re-checked the .iso - MD5 is OK)

I've also burned a number of other Dogs/Pups on this same Brasero/Mate system (or the Win7/burncdcc system, for that matter) - all without any issue.

Hope that helps...?? I need to pick up some more blank CD's (I'm just about out), but I can try some different "burns" in order to test, if you'd like...

Hi Moat,

IMHO and tests there is nothing wrong with the files in the ISO image and things have gone wrong with the original burn to
optical media. The most likely cause of a bad burn is defective optical media. It can often happen that there will be a
few duff ones in a new pack which may or may not pass a verification test.
It very much sounds as though there was some corruption when the main sfs was burnt which was not evident
initially but subsequently impacted when you attempted to install to a USB stick.

I would suggest that you try burning another CD-R with what you have found in the past to be your most reliable method.
Use the same CD drive but at the slowest possible burning speed. Before you insert the new CD-R examine the surface at various angles
under a strong light to make sure that it is free from surface scratches and blemishes in the substrate.

There may be some confusion here.
As I understand you booted from CD without problems and used the frugal installer (BionicDog-Frugal-Install) from Menu to install to USB.
My guess is that something went wrong with copying 01-filesystem.squashfs by the installer.
I'll try to reproduce within the next days.

Fred

Yes - this indeed seems to be the case. I just did a fresh download/burn onto a CD-R from a newly purchased batch (Memorex), and all is now well - with a fully booting and functioning USB flash drive frugal install (with the formerly missing BionicDog-Frugal-Install .desktop file & menu entry now back and working).

So sorry for any trouble/worries!! It was a bit odd for me, though - the first "bad burn" I've had in quite some time. Confused

That's my excuse, anyway... Wink

So no need to explore further. Thanks, fellas!

For Chromium: it's named chromium-browser
For Chrome (64-bit only): Install google-chrome-stable

Install deb file from official Chrome download, this will also add custom repository for next update

Run with this command
google-chrome-stable --no-sandbox

because Chrome not allow root user to run this with default setup. I my self create new .desktop files with that argument
