If Perl was installed through PPM, remove it with any and all associated pkgs in favor of this 139mb devx.

Hi...

Thank you! I will try this on a new install, though, I've already put a lot into the current one and am not really enthused about potentially messing it up just for one game. Smile

Regards...

Hi Semme...

The link is broken, is there another one by any chance?

Subject description: Any progress in getting Frozen Bubbles to work in Tahrpup 602 PAE?
 

Hi All,
It is now December 20, 2015.
I'm running Tahrpup 602 with rcrsn51 driver updates and service pack 603 provided by Puppy Package Manager.
I downloaded Frozen Bubbles through PPM.
Perl was auto downloaded through PPM.
Frozen Bubbles is installed but not responding.
Has there been any changes that would make Frozen Bubbles work in Tahrpup 602 PAE since this thread began?
Thank you in advance for any good news. Smile

Yes, success with Precise 571 PAE using your devx suggestion.
I'm still working on Tahrpup 602 PAE. (not working yet).

Thank you

Subject description: Does the medium matter?
 

Puppy Package Manager downloads acres of Perl data automatically when frozen-bubble is requested through PPM on Tahrpup.

Starting from scratch...I've uninstalled all the Perl data and frozen-bubble module.
Shall I go ahead and download frozen-bubble again and all the Perl data then uninstall the Perl data leaving only frozen-bubble_2.212 module?
Then place frozen-bubble module next to tahrpup sfs and devx sfs on the live USB stick?

Does it make any difference what the medium is?
Precise is running from Live CD with save on a HDD (Precise is on different machine than Tahrpup).
Tahrpup is running from USB flash drive only, no HDD on machine.
Devx sfs is loaded next to tahrpup save and tahrpup sfs on USB flash drive.


I tried copying Frozen-Bubble-2.2.0 directory from the successful Precise install to a flash drive then transferred it to /mnt/home on Tahrpup. No go.

Console report on 'frozen-bubble' continues to give 'command not found'.
(I've tried various ways of saying 'frozen bubble'.)

Thank you, 666philb.

Subject description: Simple Solution
 

Hi 666phil,

I think the simple solution here is to make a usb flash drive with Precise 571 Pae and pop that Puppy in the machine when the Frozen Bubble urge bubbles up.

Very Happy

What do you think?
