Hi, snayak.

We'll try and get your Chrome sorted out a bit later on (I haven't forgotten!), but for now, I'll try and answer these:-

1) Java: Use rerwin's Get-Java package, here:-

http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=101592

2) Python: Use the PPM.

3) Virtualbox: Should be in the PPM, but I'm really not certain whether the Precise repositories are still working, since 12.04 Precise Pangolin went EOL in April. If not, give this thread a look:-

http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=63332

4) Kernel sources: Ally (our unofficial 'archivist') has mirrored every single Puppy kernel, dev_x and kernel_sources package here:-

http://archive.org/download/Puppy_Linux_Kernels

The one you want is there; I've checked. Just scroll down till you find it. Be warned; it's a huge list! It's well worth bookmarking, too.

[Shortcut:-] http://archive.org/download/Puppy_Linux_Kernels/kernel_src-3.2.48-patched.sfs

Hope those help.


Mike. Wink

Dear All,

I went to:
Right Click->Desktop->pupX set properties of X
I set:
Screen saver Enable
Delay 5
Cycle 2
Blank screen rather than displaying a pattern

But I saw screen saver not working!
I changed time, yet no difference.

Is this screen saver setting working?
What is "Allow exposures"?


Sincerely,
Srinivas Nayak

Hello snayak,

Delay = how long before screen saver starts with no mouse / keyboard activity (mine is set to 5 seconds)

Cycle= how many seconds before screen saver changes to new pattern, (mine is set to 600 seconds)

Allow Exposures = Have that ticked (I don't know what it does but screensaver does not run if not ticked)

Click Apply button

Screen saver should now have blank screen after 5 seconds of no activity.

.This I verified in Precise 5.7.1 just now Smile

Dear perdido,

Thanks for your time.

I did as you said. But no luck. Sad

I think, on my Athlon machine it is not working.
I have done frugal installation of precise on it.


Sincerely,
Srinivas Nayak

Dear All,

I compiled a C program and it failed.

# gcc -lm a.c
/tmp/ccxAJOXM.o: In function `length':
a.cSad.text+0x5a): undefined reference to `sqrt'
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
#

I have
precise-5.7.1-retro.iso
devx_precise_5.7.1.sfs
kernel_src-3.2.48-patched.sfs

Surprised that C math library is absent. Sad
How to remedy?

Sincerely,
Srinivas Nayak

Dear rcrsn51,

Yes, I included <math.h>.

But surprised to see linking error for math lib.
First time in my life seeing such a tragedy! Sad

In case you have Precise 571, kindly try this:

a.c
------
#include<stdio.h>
#include<math.h>
int main()
{
int i=16;
printf("%f\n",sqrt(i));
return 0;
}
----------
#gcc -lm a.c


Sincerely,
Srinivas Nayak

A little googling provides the answer:
Code:
gcc a.c -lm

Dear rcrsn51,

Obliged for your help.
Your suggestion works. Smile

gcc -lm a.c worked in fatdog611.
g++ -lm a.c even worked in precise571.
but
gcc -lm a.c didn't work in precise571.
where as
gcc a.c -lm worked in precise571!

I am not able to believe this!


Sincerely,
Srinivas Nayak
