My apologies for pushing the subject (I have posted a request for a pet at several places on the forum already). But I think it is very valuable to add a functional retroshare to puppy. For one thing, it is a good alternative for the built-in server because you do not need to do any port forwarding in your router in order to accomplish a computer-to-computer connection.
I am used to using Opera Unite for this purpose but by the end of this year Opera will shutdown this feature
Another thing is that I would like to have some kind of combination of the remaster puppy program and retroshare, so I can create a copy of my existing puppy with myself pre-added as contact node (friend). Then I could give a CD with that puppy to a friend and (s)he could do the same. This would create a friend-to-friend network of puppy users who then can email/chat/talk/fileshare/participate in forums etc etc completely independent of the commonly used internet, commercial servers etc.
so pleeease... is there somebody in this virtual room who is willing to make a pet or sfs or (better still) portable linux version of the latest retroshare which works on lupu/slacko/wary.
My accomplishments so far: the portable windows version works wonderfully well via wine (connects even faster to the network compared to the version of the former release of RetroShare which sheepy made for puppy) but unfortunately the voip does not work in wine, so I suppose a real linux version is required.
I might give it a shot. I like retroshare but have yet to try it on puppy.
Last time I used retroshare it had a nasty issue where after several hours of running it would become unresponsive and lockup the computer. I've been waiting for them to fix it. I guess it's about time to try it again and hopefully by now it works well. I didn't know they implemented VOIP..
Give me some time to work on it however. Could be up to a week or five depending on free time and success.
I wonder if the time consuming task of making pets (or portable executable) files which are usable for Carolina can be automated in some way. A portable retroshare for Carolina which works from inside a truecrypt vault looks very useful and secure.
