Hello
Do you remember the time when Redneck Rampage was one of our favourite games ?
I recently found an attempt on Github to bring back Redneck Rampage based on eDuke. Well, it took some time to compile and generate a package for it (Bionic64).
Here it is.

I haven't tested if multiplayer is possible. If yes, then only like eDuke (post 1 on this page).
Enjoy.

Hello
SuperTuxKart was updated to v1.1. i made a package of the binaries. The same restrictions are valid as for the first version: it still likes to collect data. So please answer no when you are asked at the first start of the programm if you don't like this.

Have fun.

PostPosted: Mon 17 Feb 2020, 15:56    Post subject: Bionicpup64 8.0 - DLNA Pet & Repository image
Subject description: This is for anyone who has a smart TV.
 

Over the years I have issued a series of DLNA puplets starting with DLNA Quirky Werewolf64 Pup (V1) in November 2015.
The last one issued was DLNA Quirky Xerus Pup V2 in July 2017 and I am still using that on a daily basis.
It is set as the default item on my vesamenu so it is simply a matter of turning the box on in order to
bring it into operation.

The best media for a DLNA repository is either a fat32 formatted USB2 stick or an external USB2 drive.
In my case a 32GB SanDisk nano stick has sufficed and is permanently plugged into a rear port on the box.

The implementation of minidlna in my puplets was non-standard in order to target repositories by their UUIDs.
An item on the utility menu allowed for changing the UUID to accommodate a change of device.

In addition the puplets contained test video(s) on the 2nd partition of the stick whose UUID OOTB was targeted so
that no setting up was required for initial testing of the DLNA aspect with any particular smart TV.

I was contemplating issuing another puplet based on Bionicpup64 (my 'go-to' Pup for the past 12 months) when I had a
flash of inspiration or more likely a senior moment!

Why not instead just issue a small pet containing my scripts together with a 4GB starter repo image. That image can
then contain a test mp4 and it's UUID can be set in the pet. Happily Bionic already contains Minidlna 1.2.1

The resulting files can be seen in the shot below. Please note that very high compression has been used on
the 4GB image to reduce it to 71MB. It actually contains one 72MB test mp4.

The 2 files can be obtained here: https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1B60b8EQV7lJbNXdv7IjI7nG9GZOrkT-O?usp=sharing

Installation:

1. Make sure you have the Puppy Updates. - The last one on 14/02/2020 contained the latest version of UExtract.
Also in BootManager-System services make sure that minidlna is NOT ticked (scripts in the pet will take
care of it's launch)

2. Download the pet and the image. Check the md5sum of the repository.img.xz file.

3. Place the compressed image on a Linux partition somewhere with at least 4GB of free space.

4. Install the pet and right click the image to extract it in situ with UExtract.

5. Plug in your target USB2 stick which should be 4GB or larger. (No special preparation of the stick is required, but anything on it will be wiped)

6. Verify that the stick is not mounted and take note of the target device name (e.g. sdb sdc sdd)

7. Using ROX navigate to the folder that contains the extracted image.

8. Right click in free space and open a terminal window. (You may prefer to use the back tick key depending on WM)

9. Execute the following code substituting your target drive letter for the X (Do NOT use a partition number)

Code:
dd bs=4M if=./repository.img of=/dev/sdX && sync


10. Let the dog take you for a walk as writing the image to the stick will take around 20 minutes with just a flashing cursor for company.

11. Reboot and head off to the TV to test whether it works with your particular smart TV model.

Notes:

A: If you have targeted a stick larger than 4GB you may subsequently use Gparted to expand the fat32 partition to fill the unallocated space.
The UUID should remain the same.

B: fat32 has a 4GB max file size so if you want to use files larger than that reformat the drive as exFAT.

C: The Change DLNA repository item on the Utility menu provides for changing to a different target device or just changing the UUID of the existing device.

PostPosted: Sun 08 Mar 2020, 13:22    Post subject: python3-3.8.2-x86_64.sfs
Subject description: Python3 Development Environment
 

Good evening everyone, here is the link for python3-3.8.2. Compiled in Bionicpup64 with the usual recipe. I had some problems with the tkinter module but I solved with a version of the module extracted from the python3-tk package of Ubuntu's repository.

Python-3.8.2-x86_64_8.0.sfs - sha256 --> aed62152aae46dd529d4e2b47bfde4c39a2e17884ab8d2c00377c20a04cec657

Greetings

PostPosted: Sun 08 Mar 2020, 13:32    Post subject: gvim-8.2.390-x86_64-bionic.pet
Subject description: Advanced text editor
 

Good evening everyone, here is the link for version 8.2.390 of GVim, obviously also contains vim. Compiled on Bionicpup64 with the following recipe:
Code:
./configure --with-features=huge --enable-multibyte --enable-rubyinterp=yes --enable-python3interp=yes --with-python3-config-dir=/usr/lib/python3.8/config-3.8-x86_64-linux-gnu/ --enable-perlinterp=yes --enable-luainterp=yes --enable-cscope --prefix=/usr
make
make DESTDIR=/path_to_gvim/directory/of_your_choice/ install

and then I used dir2pet to create the pet file. I use it basically as the default text editor.

GVim-8.2.390-x86_64-bionic.pet -> sha256 = 1efc0463212f26e237795bd4c88c022c2557a6942e87468fa609596136495995

EDIT: Updated to the latest version, at the time of writing, added right-click option.

Regards

If you liked to play with Lego bricks, this might be interesting for you. It supports you to build objects with Lego bricks.

Subject description: Some headaches...
 

Hello
My wife wanted to use Skype for some eLearning communication during the lockdown (Corona). Well I failed with the first trials from quickpet repository. It turned out, that the newer skype versions require restricted access rights to be started. So I had to do the Spot-start again, which worked. Package can be downloaded here.

PostPosted: Wed 01 Apr 2020, 14:02    Post subject: Microsoft on a Linux Computer ?  

Yes, indeed, it is possible. I recently stumbled over Microsoft teams for Linux. I could not resist to build a package from it. It really seams to work. Means, all the benefit you know from business work with Microsoft teams could be used for private activities. I am still trying out the limits.

If you are not allergic to Microsoft you could download it here...

An updated version of Google Earth. No specific modification was necessary to build the package.

PostPosted: Sun 12 Apr 2020, 11:28    Post subject: Java 1.8.241  

I intended to use a java program but Java from the quickpet is very old and might lead to problems. I built a package of the latest java version (1.8.241). To start a java program, one could use a right click on the jar-file or the java-starter I fould elsewhere in the WEB.

PostPosted: Sun 12 Apr 2020, 11:53    Post subject: Serious Sam, the second encounter  

I recently found my CDs of Serious Sam: one of my games, we played very often in a group. Unfortunately it cannot be run on modern computers under Windows10. Well, Croteam released the source code of the game some years before. Sebastien Turban (PtitSeb) reworked the code, so that it can be compiled and run natively under Linux. I compiled it under Bionicpup64 and I am astonished how well it runs. One drawback: I am not allowed the share the game content. That means to play the game, you would need the original game content files (these are the 0 byte files which end up with .cro that would need to be replace).
