PostPosted: Tue 20 Nov 2012, 00:08    Post subject: ppm error in precise  

On a fresh usb install of Precise 5.4.1 (made in Slacko by mounting Precise ISO, copying files to USB, and then using Grub4Dos), I am unable to install files from the PPM. I was attempting to install firefox 16 from either ubuntu main, or from puppy precise repos. Seems I recall seeing this earlier in the thread, but I'm unable to locate a fix.

EDIT: reinstalled on USB drive, and can now download firefox from precise-puppy repos. However, still getting attached error message from ubuntu main repos: (posted from within Precise 5.4.1)

I am now able to produce .pets of Deadbeef with icons that work, but because I have been experimenting with different things I am not sure what resolves the issue. At first I thought it was the flags but it may be that I have to run the gtk-update-icon-cache command before doing the compile and then it builds correctly. Is this possible?

In Precise I still get the undefined symbol: libiconv error in terminal for the mms.so plugin though.

The iconv.h file in the devx is much smaller than the one that the libiconv package installs and if I substitute it back I get the ConvertUTF error and Deadbeef won't compile. Maybe I didn't fully understand your suggestion.

OscarTalks. I test compiled Deadbeef now. My idea works, but...first do ./configure....with your options...then swap the iconv.h back to the original before you compile with make. No symbol lookout error and mms-ffmpeg combo plays wma.

Worked for me. You need ffmpeg module to be enabled to use mms with wma.

./configure --prefix=/usr --enable-ffmpeg

I just dont understand what provides libiconv like stuff for ubuntu because ubuntu does not provide it and ubuntu compile dependencies list for deadbeef does not give any straight answer. I wonder if woof packages-templates strip something essential out, or otherwise there must be similar package somewhere, I just dont get grasp of it.

Heh. That swapping of iconv.h also removed the external libiconv dependency. So....as side-effect you dont have to install almost 2 Mb of unneeded stuff.

I compiled mhwaveedit in precise so that it will recognize the
LADSPA plugins. The trick was to make sure that the
LADSPA header file (ladspa.h) was present during compiling.

LADSPA plugins HERE

It also works in latest Slacko

Code:

./configure --with-default-mixerapp=retrovol --with-default-ladspa-path=/usr/lib/ladspa --prefix=/usr
make
make install DESTDIR=/root/mhwaveedit-1.4.21

Quite a few bugs in this. I did a full HDD install and gave it a good long try, but in the end went back to Slacko 533 from which I'm posting.

The package manager just doesn't work sometimes. Finds dead links for dependencies that I stick into a google search and come up with in a few seconds, then manually download and install. Then things still don't work quite right.

I got dpkg related errors when running just about anything I installed, besides the simplest of apps. I also had to copy over several things from my Slacko install to make things work properly, and I had the "text to boxes" glitch too.

That probably isn't very helpful, but hopefully it gives a general idea at least. I wouldn't use this as my main Pup yet.

If I can post anything more specific that will help, just let me know. The Precise install is still there, I'm just not using it right now.

Can you duplicate the precise conditions under which this occurs?

If so, it might be possible to fix it.

It was noted just after installing a package with petget, but I'm not sure it's specific to one app, so maybe a dependency that goes with several different ones. I don't really remember which program I was installing when it happened, but I can reference the fix.

The same fix shown in that thread worked for me, so I assume the guy who posted it understands what's going on.

That's too bad. It's hard to fix a problem if it can't be reproduced. As opposed to just slapping a patch on it afterwards.

hi cowboy

the ubuntu repo's are being updated quite frequently and so the PPM also needs to be updated more frequently than usual. This is the reason you are seeing that error message,

open the PPM, click configure, then update.

Note that this used to take quite a long time, but following some improvements in woof, it can now take less than a minute. This version of precise does not have those improvements, but a service pack pet is going to be released in the next few days.

Barry,

Many thanks for the changes to PPM. It is now a joy.

Please consider the following fix for the highlighting issue with the otherwise excellent "stark-blueish" GTK theme. (Test before and after in leafpad)

Change line in gtkrc:
From:
Code:
base[SELECTED]   = "#ece9f7"

To:
Code:
base[SELECTED]   = "#2cc2ff"

The link is incorrect. It doesn't match the actual filename. It should be:

...the above also recorded in /tmp/report-video
