PostPosted: Mon 11 Jun 2012, 04:04    Post subject: Qt conflict?  

addition: uninstalling & re-installing smplayer and umplayer does not help.

and I have encountered this very rame problem before

http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=595513&sid=71580379a806d9ef904680a015be481b

then it was caused by "conflicting Qt libraries". Perhaps it is the same here? Anyway... I do not know how to fix this...

Dromeno, one of the great things about Puppy Linux is its portability and modular like structure. If you are a fiddler like most of us, it's important to take some precautions.

First, frugal has some advantages over a full installation. It is easy to backup the save file in case of problems like you are currently experiencing.

I usually have two entries in my menu.lst file whether I'm using Grub or Grub4Dos. One entry loads Saluki normally and the other entry has pfix=ram on the kernel line. This allows me to run Saluki, or any other Puppy, without using the save file.

Always make a copy of the save file on a regular basis. If it is ever corrupted its easy to replace. I like to keep the save file around 512M although I have had them grow to 6 & 7M. With Saluki's custom builder I like to add new applications to adrive rather than the save file. Make sure to have a backup of adrive too.

It's also a good idea to test new applications with the pfix=ram option. If it works then add it to adrive using the custom builder. Make sure adrive has been backed up first.

Where you can install and run application outside of the save file and adrive is a good idea too as the application is then available for other puppy distributions.

Hope this helps.

PostPosted: Mon 11 Jun 2012, 04:40    Post subject: re-installing qt is no solution either  

yep... if there is a qt library conflict then uninstalling everyting qt-like, reboot, and re-installing the QT 4.8.0 and webkit should do the trick, right?

but no.

so either it is not a qt problem, or/and I have no clue what the problem is.

PostPosted: Mon 11 Jun 2012, 05:10    Post subject: ...but I would like to understand it...  

smokey01... you are right. and I have an older 3fs backup.

But I would like to understand what is happening here. Otherwise I will be forced to try each existing application after the installation of a new one. And of course make a backup of the 3fs after the installation of every new app, so I can go back. Almost like windows.

At the moment I need to figure out to which 3fs backup I need to go when I discover that some app will not start properly.

At the moment, I have a feeling that is must be something essential but simple which is messed up. But I do not know what:

minitube produces a similar damage report in the terminal:

minitube: symbol lookup error: /opt/qt4/lib/libphonon.so.4: undefined symbol: _ZN9QMetaType15registerTypedefEPKci

Here is pyroom writing program.

Typo. Should be pfix=ram

I am pointing this out to avoid inadvertently confusing beginners.

Subject description: A trainer for Mint Debian Edition
 

I tried the Mint Xfce over the weekend and while not bad, there's still root user issues that will prevent quick learning. That opens a big door for very able Saluki. I'm sure that's already considered but with some promotion perhaps the word will get out to a million or so Xfce fans/students. That's about all I wanted to say.

Subject description: Excellent puppy
 

Hi Jemimah, firstly many thanks to you and the others for this puppy. I love puppy generally but always go back to PCLinuxOs because almost everything works out of the box (But it tends to run a bit slow even on new hardware 3ghz quad core)
I thought I would try a few different puppies for speed and ease of use and yours was the first.
I was going to pop back into PCLinuxOs but realised I felt so at home in your Puppy I would post from here instead. So far your puppy seems the most polished that i have tried so once again many thanks
Tony

Ok, I have built a new personlalized saluki... But a strange behavior emerged: this one boots in a netbook launcher environment (tabbed desktop). I want to change it back to what it was but I can not find the icon for it in the control panel, nor do I know the terminal command for it.

For people who want a simple and fast method of
MD5sum calculation and checking of their downloaded files

I made a right click package. It needs xclip to be installed as well
but it's not too big.


Available here


Instructions: Just put the MD5sum in clipboard (by selecting)
Then choose the right click menu option.
