Quirky has get-flash 1.5-4b, created by shinobar. I just checked, shinobar has a later one, 1.5-6, I will test that:

Thanks for the feedback.

Quirky Xerus 8.1.94 for x86_64

Nobody noticed this ?
Code:
# ppm
cat: /tmp/pup_event_sizefreem: No such file or directory
expr: syntax error
/usr/local/petget/installpreview.sh: line 101: [: 10157: unary operator expected
/usr/local/petget/installpreview.sh: line 311: [: 9421: unary operator expected


- /etc/xdg/templates/_root_.jwmrc
has many obsolete entries like : Gaim xmms

- Exit to command line gives in the first line :
find /etc/X11/xkb/symbols no such file

- in xerrs.log
ls: cannot access '/root/.pup_event': No such file or directory

Thanks, Mr.Kauler, but belham2 suggested a good tip and I was able to
get to desktop.

I rebooted to Quirky Xerus just now, and all my customizations (the ones
that can be seen in the screen cap above) were gone.


I do not understand what you are saying.

Do you mean that you did customizations in the live-CD, then did a frugal install, then booted the frugal install?

When you do a frugal install, at first bootup it is a pristine system, so you won't have any prior customizations.

So, I am puzzled by your statement.

Oh, I'm sure I had a frugal install, there was an "s.sfs" in the QuirkyXerus
directory. Looking back, I think I forgot to hit the Save icon before
powering down. Puppy habits die hard! Smile

When you click the "save" icon, there is a checkbox to bring up the save-window at every shutdown.

I didn't make that the default, as some people want to have the default of not saving anything.

I have done a bit of a writeup on the philosophical differences between Quirky and Puppy:

http://barryk.org/news/?viewDetailed=00595

I rather like that idea of moving user-installed packages into q.sfs, if you decide that you want to keep that package permanently.

The CLI text editor 'mp' is broken. It is the old problem of the menu not working. It is version 3.2.13.

I have compiled 3.3.17 and it works, so have made a PET and it will be in the next release of Quirky.

If L18L reads this, he will probably want to remind me that the 3.x series does not support UTF-8 Very Happy

I still haven't sorted out the keyboard mappings of the 5.x series of mp.

Thanks for reporting this.

Yes, this is a very old bug. it used to be that /root/Startup/freememapplet_tray periodically wrote the amount of free memory (in MB) to /tmp/pup_event_sizefreem
However, that code was removed.

I have fixed /usr/local/petget/installpreview.sh so it no longer tries to read that non-existent file. So, those syntax errors should now be fixed.

Ah, there is another thread in the forum, rerwin, Geoffrey and Sailor Enceladus have updated get-flash. It is now at 1.7-1:

What? You mean a bcm 64 bit ? As in the bcm used by vovchik in support
of his aemenu-pango hack, except 64 bit? Surprised

(Shucks, Flash, could you please add an icon to really express awe on
this forum?) Laughing

Reading your little blurb, Barry (thanks, BTW), I suppose this means I have
to come up with a 64-bit version of MRUF for QuirkyXerus. Ah! Wink
You slave-master, you! Laughing

Initial Test

Hi Barry,

Thanks for this latest beta. Install was to a 16GB USB2 stick using the 8GB image.

It has so far proven to be fast & polished with a very low memory footprint for a 64-bit Pup.
Issues:

1. Despite the return to retrovol the set master volume level still does not survive a re-boot
returning to zero every time. Suspicion falls on Aumix which perhaps should also have
been removed or some change that was made to the alsa config to accomodate Aumix in the
first place needs to be reverted. In particular /etc/init.d/aumix is still present
together with 3 related config files in /etc. (aumixrc, aumixrc1 & aumixrc2)

2. The desktop file for the menu item "Urxvt terminal emulator" points at rxvt instead of /usr/bin/urxvt

3. The included versions of Pup-Sysinfo and Urxvt Control are way out of date - please see below:

Items so far installed:
    GetLatest64bitChromeVersionWoofQ-MK1|Get Latest Chrome Version
    google-chrome-stable_current_amd64|Access the Internet
    Pup-SysInfo-2.7|System information utility
    PupClockset-2.5|PupClockset manager
    libguess1_1.2-1.1|high-speed character set detection library
    librubberband2v5_1.8.1|audio time-stretching and pitch-shifting library
    libsdl2-2.0-0_2.0.4+dfsg1|Simple DirectMedia Layer
    libsndio6.1_1.1.0-2|Small audio and MIDI framework from OpenBSD runtime libraries
    mpv_0.14.0|video player based on MPlayer/mplayer2
    Wimbledon_2017|Wimbledon BBC2
    Thunderbird64_release_channel-52.1.1|Thunderbird mail reader
    Target_uuid|Change DLNA Repository
    PupSnap-2.5.1_Scrot-0.8_64Bit|PupSnap screen capture
    UrxvtControl-1.3|Urxvt configuration

I created a quick "Wimbledon Pup" with it to watch the finals.

Update:

Still running everything via "frugal" install, and using (and beating the heck out of) the supposedly limited 'savefile'. Well, I installed the monster 333MB quirky-devx, and had savefile save it, and next reboot, Quirky booted like a champ and I have full compiling at my fingertips.

First up was compiling JWM-2.3.6, bringing the jwm up from the included "jwm-vgit-976" to now the full "2.3.6". I've encountered no problems.

Next, I did "JWMDesk" manager, a much cleaner and better organized window controlling everything from jwm, themes, icons, screensaver, fonts, hotkeys and menumanager all in one scrren. I removed all the individual separate menu launchers in Quirky, and now just have JWMDesk Manager.

Below is a pic of these two things: more compiling and installs (plus a few more compiling upgrades) to come. Darn good stuff, Barry, cannot believe the supposed limited "savefile" is handling with aplomb everything I am throwing at it Smile

Have also installed "pmcputemp" monitor, plus an active "firewall-tray-monitor" icon in jwm-tray, if anyone's interested. Here's the pic:

Mike Walsh's excellent Slimjet-sfs packages work awesome in Quirky. I downloaded his 'Slimjet-Version-15.0.0.0 (based on Chromium 59.0.3071.86_64)', quickly converted it to a pet, and it installed easily & is now running good in Quirky 8.1.94. Slimjet provides a nice counterpoint to the installed Seamonkey 2.48---especially when I want to get at my Netflix stuff Wink
