something about hiawhata webserver.


always loads at startup, do not know why.

BootManager this off: s
In 214XRC5 I just made /etc/init.d/hiawatha.run non-executable (right-click - properties - un-tick the three exec-boxes).
I see that in 214X-top9 (not running it at the moment, so cannot verify) there are more files involved
Code:
# ls -go /etc/init.d/*atha*
lrwxrwxrwx 1   27 2011-10-10 23:03 hiawatha.run -> ../rc.d/init.d/hiawatha.run
-rwxrwxrwx 1 1713 2010-08-22 16:45 rc.hiawatha
#
I'd suggest to first try if making /etc/rc.d/init.d/hiawatha.run non-executable is enough. If not, I'd continue with making /etc/init.d/rc.hiawatha non-executable. And if hiawatha would still be auto-started, I'd simply delete all three files (provided I'd have no intention of running hiawatha later on).

Hope that helps Smile/MHHP


Hi,

MHHP solution works, although this is a bug that need some changes on 214X to solve this problem. >It works like this:

1. BootManager changes executable properties on "/etc/rc.d/init.d/*" files to enbale or disable any service.
2. "/etc/rc.d/rc.ervices" script executes all files on "/etc/init.d" directory (I think this was designed on this way to make Puppy works like other Linux distros).
3. To make both previous points work and avoid duplicated information, any file in /etc/init.d should be a symlink to an executable service file on /etc/rc.d/init.d/.

In the hiawatha case there are two executable files on /etc/init.d and just one is a symlink that can be controled by BootManager.

The definitve solution for the hiawatha service should be, delete redundant and bigger hiawatha.run file on /etc/init.d/, move the /etc/init.d/rc.hiawatha executable file to /etc/rc.d/init.d/, then make a symlink in /etc/init.d/ pointing to the moved executable file (´ln -s /etc/rc.d/init.d/rc.hiawatha rc.hiawatha´).

There is also needed a small change on Bootmanager, (just to keep the description on the hiawatha service list), line 284:
add an * character before hiwatha, it should be:

*hiawatha*)

Or to avoid this change on Bootmanager, first rename the rc.hiawatha file to hiawatha (or hiawatha.run whatever you like but remember to delete the redunat file first) then move this file and finally create the symlink pointing to it.

That´s all.

Regards,

Update; I've now installed a few icon sets and decided the tok-tok sets are my favourites so far (narrowly, over Buttonized). Here's my desktop, with the tok-tok dark icon set;

Just a quick note, as I've just come across trio's sfs converter, which I thought people here might find useful
- convert sfs3>4 and sfs4>3

http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?&t=45614


thanks go to SHS for his Opera 12.00 Build 1085 for Puppy 214x-top9, which led me to the link

Hi guys I came across a chat client that uses the fox toolkit, so I compiled the Fox toolkit statically and compiled the chat app, so basically you don't need the toolkit install to run the app.
I also configured the fonts, background and I have it set automatically to log into the #1puppylinux
Its kind of like xchat but has smileys, sounds, flags etc lots of graphics.
Its too big to go into the 2.14X release as default, but still something to play with Smile

I tried to compile Goggles Music Manager and when I did it worked fine but it had no Icons, so I looked at jemimah Static version she compiled, and that installed but needed a system link, This music manager is probably the best music manager going. just drag and drop your cd music files etc, it just works nicely.

I've been building the next release for the past 2 days, most people that would be like a week, lol well around 20hrs the first day and by the time I'm done today it will be close again, lol
why do you? you may wonder, do I spend so much time on it? Simple Its been a uphill battle, I had a lot of issues with Glib, GTK, GDK-Pixbuf, I would fix one issue and then another would happen, When I compiled the latest gtk2 about a month ago, it was 2 versions outdated, and compiled very easy compared to this.
But This time around I wanted to have the base ready for GTK3 where as the one I compiled a month ago would of been slightly outdated. Its kind of addictive to sort out all these issues and continue on with the build. I just finished compiling gtk3, It shouldn't add much weight because I used all the latest backend for gtk3 when I built gtk2, so it actually needed no extra deps, how good is that?
I'm only a bit worried about GDK-Pixbuf when I would use the new2dir script I would get an error and gtk2 wouldn't compile right, the png loader would fail, but if I used make install without the new2dir script it worked. So I guess I'll find-out when I test it.
I did a test and compressed the new GTK3 into a sfs, the end result was an additional 1.7MB to the iso, I don't think we can complain with that, just as long as everything works, lol
