PostPosted: Wed 08 Aug 2007, 07:24    Post_subject:  Where do I put it : or: new puppy application locations  

I am currently setting webmin, usermin and virtualmin applications (plus a few other administration packages when it's all up) for a "web administrators" package for puppy.

I can't seem to find any guide to a set of locations for the packages and their libraries, etc.

Can someone assist with a pointer to a message or the default standards used for puppy please.

Id rather not worry Barry yet if others can help, he's got enough on his plate.

thanks in advance

Thanks i have sent raffy a pm.

What i'm looking at, is building an web administration set of packages with the idea of a totally portable system. Currently I look after an area of about 400km. and a number of owners, multiple configurations, etc. I'd like to have a cd to walk in with and boot on one of their workstations to do what I want to rather than part at my site and the rest on theirs.

As a second part (later) is to create a ?secure intranet website on puppy for them rather than m$

"web administrators" package for puppy


Smile Thanks for the clarification
You are writing this with Puppy for your Puppy set up

I thought you were trying to set it up for Puppy
and wondered what you intended

Embarassed

good luck

It's the usual locations in Linux: programs go to /usr and libs go to /lib or /usr/lib. Some people use /usr/lib for applications, most others use /usr/local.

Any changes that you make will be saved in pup_save, so make sure pup_save is saved in hard disk (in ext2 or fat32 partition will be good, not ntfs).

Please focus first in getting your system working on a package by package fashion. Tip: see /initrd/pup_rw for changes to your system - you can copy a snapshot of changes and put in /package1, /package2, as you add packages. Do this as soon as the package begins working.

AFAIK, Barry's never said what file layout standards Puppy should use. The structure above is conventional in most Linux distros, but badly flawed.

In particular, it puts the files needed by an application all over the place, in a number of different directories, making it very difficult to deal with applications as a unit (especially if you want to allow easy and correct access to multiple versions of the same application.)

One of the things I just discovered about ROX is that it takes a different approach to solve this difficult problem. See the "Application Directories" section at http://rox.sourceforge.net/desktop/about_rox?. (There are other ways - we developed some at Chevron, but ROX is much simpler to implement, as the other methods I've seen rely on both scarily complex automounter maps and the name/directory services that drive them.)

The ROX approach allows apps to remain easily "packaged", even after installation in the filesystem - deleting an app is just deleting its directory. Although I haven't tried it on Puppy yet, this lets ROX support ZeroInstall, which should allow drag-and-drop app installation (does this work with PETs? Another thing I haven't tried...)
