I was able to go directly to the seamonkey-project.org page to install.

It required a couple of extra steps, helpfully provided here on the Forum, and now I'm just adding Flash & otherwise tweaking it (removing Google, setting defaults).

I asked our teen son to check out Slimboat.

Thanks!

Subject description: Compilation problems with 'R' statistical environment
 

Hi pemasu,
I've had a little time to go back to a pet project in getting a raft of academic research-oriented applications together under Puppy, but I'm running into problems. Overall I reckon that the planets have aligned nicely - Puppy kernel updates (re Wheezy/upup precise) and the maturation of my target apps like CowLog, Zotero, Docear, JabRef, ImageJ etc (I'm only considering 32-bit configurations at present) - so I'm having a bash at compiling/converting debs in Wheezy. Not having any luck with 'R': r-cran-base isn't available via PPM though many of its add-on modules are, and although I've got the devx in and the latest java sfs...
Bugger. Just realised that I'm trying to do this from a frugal install. Maybe (?) that is what is partly why I'm going through dependency torture:
Code:
# R
/usr/lib/R/bin/exec/R: error while loading shared libraries: libblas.so.3gf: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

I've tracked down libblas from the Debian repositories, and installed a raft of co-dependencies, but there is no change in the patient.

Sorry - I'm trying to walk before I crawl with this compilation stuff - could I have my hand held please (by anyone) with stepwise instructions (screenies??) on creating an R v2.15 sfs or pet please http://www.r-project.org/. I don't want to have to keep bleating my upgraded requests to busy gurus, whenever my apps upgrade...
At this point I'll have to go back to a Lupu 528-005 base to see how emil did it with his earlier constructions http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=51141 (R - statistics package and scripting language) and see if I can't cobble something together in the meantime.

Puppyt. R statistical app with extensions is in Debian Wheezy repo. What I did, I updated the repo databases. Decline the debian updates repos update, there arent those.

After updating database, I downloaded R core packages and got R starting. Okay...now comes the tricky part. You can start with r-base .deb and examine dependencies and download.
debconf was installed as dependency. It means disaster. Puppies does not support debconf - ucf - debian database structure. The r-core-base deb has postinstallation scripts which configures /etc/R/Renviron configure file....and so...it wont be created. I hacked the ucf script, donwloaded debian dpkg and got it created.

Also....somehow /usr/lib/libblas/* and /usr/lib/lapack/* libs were not found. So....I moved them to the /usr/lib.

I used pure debian wheezy packages.

What you need to do after installation of needed tens of packages.
In console:
mv /usr/lib/libblas/* /usr/lib
mv /usr/lib/lapack/* /usr/lib

and install the attached fix pet which has created /etc/R/Renviron configuration file

All the apps which have debconf as dependency usually will need manual hack. First the control files need to extracted, then you need to run: 'postinst configure' command and check what it does call and what fails and then fix the problem. I know.....pain in the a**

Subject description: R statistical environment for Wheezy
 

pemasu you're a bloody marvel - thank you so much for all the time this has taken you to compile and debug the latest version of 'R'. It has been a perennial thorn in my side for a few years now in the forums - and quite a few first-time posters come in on this topic.
I will see what I can do with your detailed instructions and config file, and go about constructing an SFS base for perhaps wider interest in the Puppy and statistical communities. It's something I have to get practice in. Cheers again- that is a massive, massive help!

Anyone able to get GRUB to install a menu on a laptop with the evil Micro$oft EFI/UEFI BIOS-based scheme to block dual-booting Linux?

We rolled-back the M$ version of windows from 8 to 7 (8 is junk) but that had no impact as this hardware-sabotage is in the BIOS.

Very frustrating!

Fatdog has the ability to boot these new UEFI firmware enabled comps. In some of those comps, it should be possible to turn of UEFI. I dont have personally any experience of UEFI firmware enabled comps. They are still future adventures for me.
I bought as christmas present for my son laptop at October with win 7 so that I was able to avoid win 8.
I believe I wont buy comp with win 8 included.

This may force me to support two Puppy distros - Wheezy for the 32-bit machines and Fatdog for the two 64-bit laptops.

Micro$oft = complicating the simple.

So, I should wait for that, and then the import of it to Puppy?

How long after 5-5-13 might Puppy have integrated Wheezy-7/64/UEFI?

Someone suggested that it is possible to "reflash your BIOS with a custom key".

Does that sound realistic?

Does it risk bricking the laptop?

Thanks!

Yes... it's true!

I lost an XP box to a hacker that did exactly that 3 or 4 years ago... After much research I learned it could have also destroyed certain mother-board functions as well. The box (desktop model) still sits on a table here as a reminder why I went with Linux. I am not sure if Linux could be affected, could be harder... I just don't know? But never had it happen again since getting rid of MS and using Linux! To this day, I can't figure for the life of me why anyone who knows and uses Linux would ever ever want to keep MS on their computer with Linux!

If you're going to start a discussion on this, it would be better placed over in the security section as it could get pretty heavy.... don't want this to conflict with the thread here Wink
