Running the update results in LOTS of changes to the system; I don't know if this is a wise thing to do or not.

I guess I will find out if anything that I use 'breaks,' but in general, it would be nice to know if running a systemwide update from Slackware 12 is a good idea or not..

..well, I broke something. X did not start and won't start on a reboot, am reinstalling the pup now...

if i've downloaded a package using gslapt. Then why can't i store it on another drive for example and reopen it locally to install it


I think they are left in /var/slapt-get. When you download a package there's a box you can check to download only and not install. Then the package will be left in /var/slapt-get for sure. Don't know if there's a way to install a local package with Gslapt, might have to use slapt-get from command line.

Also, I just put a few Slackware mirrors in Gslapt. There's many more.

That would seem like a really bad idea, though I guess you found that out. Smile Puppy is not Slackware 12.

Which now brings up the issue... how do you know what is and what is not safe to download? And if the answer is, you don't, then what is the value of gslapt?

Most applications should be fine, but basic libraries and services like Xorg would be bad. I had hoped people would give feedback on what packages cause problems so that we could prevent them from being installed. As I stated before this is experimental software.

Trouble is, when you install all updates, you don't know what is causing what problems. Maybe we need a version that has that option disabled...

I've tried to install mplayer rc2 and mplayer-plugin, and mplayer gives me this error:

Quote:
mplayer: error while loading shared libraries: libvga.so.1: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

and vga is actually installed, I've tried to configure /etc/vga/libvga.config with no luck.

Ideas?

thanks

maybe could be a matter of symbolic links,,,

Code:

# locate libvga.so 
/usr/lib/libvga.so.1
/usr/lib/libvga.so.1.9.25
/usr/lib/libvga.so
# ls -hal /usr/lib/libvga.so
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 16 2007-11-15 14:32 /usr/lib/libvga.so -> libvga.so.1.9.25
# ls -hal /usr/lib/libvga.so.1
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 16 2007-11-15 14:32 /usr/lib/libvga.so.1 -> libvga.so.1.9.25
# ls -hal /usr/lib/libvga.so.1.9.25
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 397K 2007-05-26 01:13 /usr/lib/libvga.so.1.9.25

esmourguit,

The home page for Gslapt is here:

http://software.jaos.org/#slapt-get

Maybe you can find what you need there.

Could be, when Puppy 3.0 came out, it had a lot in common with Slackware 12. It still does, but as packages get updated in slapt-get, Puppy 3 stays the same and the difference grows. Gslapt will show you which dependencies it's going to install, and I think you can choose to install them or not. Some dependencies should not be installed because Puppy is not Slackware and other things will break. For a while I was trying to exclude those packages and update this pet package, but the Slackware packages keep changing and there is not a direct correlation between Puppy packages and Slackware packages. So not having the time or compulsive desire, I gave up back in October. If anyone would like to take that over, go ahead, but it's not going to be easy.

It's still useful, but you have to be careful what you install. If if GSlapt wants to install a new kernel or some basic library (glibc etc) don't do it. If a pet package is available, try it first. If your not sure, create a new pup_save file and test the package install in it first.

You say good Kirk. few hours ago I installed successfully (apparently) Autotrace, but, after installation, no application starts, I have rebooted and now X server does not start , so I cant't back in X. fortunately This was a pup_save file created for gslapt experiments, not for regular use

I don't know if you guys have seen my latest package for Gslapt, I removed the 4kb/second sources and Installed a faster one, plus installed undeb/unrpm which is ran via command line.
