Latest WakePup2 .pet file creates floppy and works fine with 4.x Puppies and Wary 5.1.1.

The problem is with Wary 5.1.4.1.
After .pet is installed, floppy cannot be created, as dialog box will not open.
Check dependencies installed pkg shows nothing missing.
Launching from terminal generates error message (see attached).

This might also affect later Wary builds.
I only have Wary 5.1.1 and 5.1.4.1 (and dial-up); that's why I'm referring strictly to those two.
(I'm also curious as to whether this problem affects recent builds of Lucid and Slacko.)

Dewbie,

That was part of my crusade to get rid of gtkdialog2 awhile ago, so i patched it, actually only took a minute. I can't test as I have no working floppy drives.

NOTE: the image is not present in the pet, if you want the image to do a proper test download wakepup2 first.. either get the one from the link in Dewbie's post or from ibiblio/pet_packages-4

Thanks for posting, 01micko.
Is the NOIMAGE .pet supposed to be installed with the WakePup2 .pet?
I tested this; makes no difference with Wary 5.1.4.1; same problem.
Again, my concern is that this might also affect later Wary builds.

NOIMAGE .pet also blocks WakePup create boot floppy when tested with Wary 5.1.1 and 4.x Puppy Linux. Without NOIMAGE .pet, everything works OK.

So apparently the gtkdialog / WakePup2 issue started somewhere between 5.1.2 and 5.1.4.1.

Attached is an image of what's supposed to appear when everything is working correctly with a WakePup2 .pet installed.

Yes.

Install the NOIMAGE pet second. Maybe those older wary versions don't have gtkdialog4? It requires gtkdialog4 as the older gtkdialog3 has a bug where it can't read from stdout, resolved by moose-on-the-loose I believe. If there is no gtkdialog4 in your wary you can download it and install it from ibiblio or mirrors. I'm pretty sure all wary versions have the prerequisites.

Your screeny looks almost identical to what displays on my desktop. I just can't test the underlying code. ie: writing the image.

I tried 01micko's fix and it writes a boot floppy fine using Wary Puppy 5.3.

I'll take a look at the script and see if it can be modified with an "if exist" branch or something so it works with all versions of Puppy.

/// Edited a few hours later:

Attached is an "A" version of 01micko's pet file. It works with either the older or newer versions of Puppy Linux. It looks for gtkdialog4 and uses that if it exists. Otherwise, it uses gtkdialog2.

/// Edited Aug. 9:

I replaced the "A" version with the attached "C" version (the "B" version didn't work too well).
This version first tries to use gtkdialog2, then gtkdialog4, and then gtkdialog3 as a last resort.
This isn't too hard to do in a ten line program, but would be kind of a pain in a thousand line program.

/// Third edit Aug 15:

I posted a full version of Wakepup 2, using this script and an updated floppy image, at
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=80291

PostPosted: Sat 04 Aug 2012, 09:53    Post subject: Multisession boot-up ignores file deletions  

Barry,
While attempting to develop in a multisession environment, I discovered that if I delete a file, save to CD, then reboot (without further saving), the deleted file remains in place. The whiteout file for it does get written to the generated delta directory but appears to be ignored in the process of setting up the pup_ro1 layer in the reboot session.

I assume the fix belongs in the initrd.gz file, which is currently outside of my "territory". Now that I have pointed out the issue, I trust that the solution will be obvious to you. Please consider correcting this during your woof upgrade. Thanks.
Richard

I would like to add a request for pupzip script.

After a while running Puppy Linux i found out that I do not like files to be extracted with the original file "being deleted" .

Cause is if it is a .diff file for example, any accidentally changes to that file are permanent, for example.

I have added these two lines to the .gz and .bz2 parts :
Code:
cp "$1" "${1%/*}"/tmp-"${1##*/}"

before bunzip2 or gunzip is executed
to create a temporary file
and
afterwards to restore
Code:
mv "${1%/*}"/tmp-"${1##*/}" "$1"

.
Not sure about .wh. whipeout files created in that process, though.
I am starting to use the term "whipeout" for the "official" term "whiteout" , because these .wh. files mainly get created while removing files.

Hi Barry,

This is a follow-up to my post from July 8th concerning a bug with partview. I had a look at the file, and, where the optical drives are tagged, I changed the value on line #63 from:
Code:
ASIZE=4300000

to:
Code:
ASIZE=700000


So, now partview is showing a respectable 683 mb capacity for my CD rom drive as seen in my screenshot. Please check and confirm if this simple fix is all that is needed here.

Thanks,
Monsie

Barry,

On second thought...

I believe that partview is supposed to show the size of the disk partition and not necessarily the actual size of the drive --right? I also think there needs to be a value for the partition size whether the disk is a DVD or a CD, so, I changed line #63 to read:
Code:
ASIZE=4300000 700000


Since I am using a CD-r that has been "finalized" the partition size of the CD is that portion which I actually used when I burned the data onto it. Since I did not use up the disk capacity, then I show a reduced partition with zero free space as shown in my new screenshot.

That said, is it also necessary to change line #56 to read the same, namely:
Code:
ASIZE=4300000 700000


Hopefullly, I've got it right now...

Thanks,
Monsie

One other problem I did experience was in attempting to initially connect to the net via a Belkin F5D6050 USB wireless connection.

A Knoppix distro that I initially tried automatically detected and connected OK with that adapter, but non of the Puppy's detected it. I spent a couple of days trying everything I could find on the net about how to get it working, but to no avail. In the end I swapped connections with my son's so that he's now using the wireless whilst the PC I am using is hard wired.

I went through practically every USB wireless adapter driver listed, and even tried loading via ndiswrapper etc. But with no luck.


Only 2 versions of F5D6050 exist; both apparently use the
same driver.

http://linux-wless.passys.nl/query_part.php?brandname=Belkin

It's the at76c50x-usb and is in Wary but may need to be
loaded from "load modules" in the network wizard.
