Could someone please replicate this test?

uninstall cups-2.1.3 cups-avahi cups-filter and report anything unusual.

Cheers

LOL Laughing , saw stemsee's msg yesterday, thought I have Fatdog721 on one laptop & there's no printing hooked up to it, so what possible harm could come if I removed cups? Did it, and KABOOOM, after everything started & sitting in horror as Gslapt went into some drug-filled hyperdrive, when it was over my savefile was completely toast.

Stemsee, from here on out you are officially on my "NO-FLY" list. I'm gonna pass on all your Dr. Frankenstein experiments....haha Wink


P.S. Thanks, JB, for explaining what happened. For a short while (until reading your post this morning), I thought my system had been hit by some nasty virus/malware I'd never heard of.

I prefer using command-line slapt-get rather than gslapt. One reason is that slapt-get can uninstall a package without also uninstalling its dependencies. Just use the --no-deps option. And slapt-get asks you to confirm install/uninstall operations, so you always get a chance to opt out.

On a positive note this is a blazingly fast way to have a "SlimDog64".

@belham2 ... roflmao!

Seriously JB if I only did stuff with the OS that I understand, I would still be on windows chasing down malware! instead of squashing bugs! I'm only the messenger!!

Thanks for the good info! I do my learning on a "safe" computer, and somewhat agree with stemsee. I would not have guessed the fun and flexibility of Linux a few years ago. And I expect a few bumps in a construction zone.

glsapt doesn't want to upgrade find-n-run, objecting to my lack of gtk-dialog 514, but gslapt indicates I have the latest version of gtk-dialog.

Just FYI, I figure it can be fixed.

@dr. Dan, the correct dependency info should be gtkdialog-2013.514-x86_64-1 and will be fixed in the package itself. Meanwhile, you can upgrade it from the command-line with:
slapt-get --ignore-dep -i findnrun

Thanks for reporting.

@stemsee:

Of course every one is welcome to experiment, and is encouraged to. That's what FOSS is all about. Experiment, tinker, share and improve.

But when you do experiment you take precautions. You don't do experiment with rocket fuel in your house - you do it in a special disposable place, so that even if it gets destroyed, you still have a house to come home.

Also, if you have done your own experiment and found that it destructive, you don't ask people to repeat what you did without telling them the consequences. You don't basically ask people "please run rm -rf / in terminal, and tell me what result you've got." That would be irresponsible.

In fact, although it sounds like cliche, there is a good reason every potentially dangerous experiment always starts with the warning "don't do it at home ..."

Don't get me wrong, I do appreciate your feedback and bug reports. They all help Fatdog to become better for all us. But please do it more responsibly.


cheers!

@ step: Thanks, I did it just because, even though I don't use it. Learning is good.

@jamesbond: I would have appreciated a warning, but ultimately, my fault for not pulling out my flash drive to prevent writing the changes. Live and learn, and learn, and learn....

Fairpoints!

I am consistently opening initrds and mounting kernel-modules.sfs and swapping them around thinking I can keep track of all the speedy things I do simultaneously, needless to say I lose track and get confused, re-duplicating done things. Then I often reboot, and forgot what for etc etc ... so I thought my personal system was awry, and posted in a manner that would not cause alarm etc ... I was fairly certain that there would not be a similar result! (as in when I found a problem with fatdog remaster iso on my pc). In fact somewhere along the line, I broke cups server and only got an error when trying to browse to localhost:631/admin ... this prompted me to search online for causes ... at which point I realise cups is at 2.3, so I decided to compile and install that after uninstalling 2.1.3, not realising it should be gslapt 'locked'. So when everything and the kitchen sink got removed I reasonably assumed it was my broken system. Fair enough I should have said don't use an important savefile for this test.

Although I chuckled at imagining the look of horror on the testers face! and still do!!

PostPosted: Fri 02 Mar 2018, 12:49    Post subject: xchat 2.8.8  

I needed an IRC client recently and installed XChat via Gslapt. XChat installs, and while /usr/bin/xchat-spot exists - the app still tries to save its settings to /root/.xchat2 and fails.

Just thought I should mention this in case other apps behave the same way and there is a universal solution.

Got it. I disabled eztables and now it's working. What have I to insert in my eztables.cfg in order to consent ftp connections?

Hey watchdog,
A friend of mine is also having trouble with transmission to download torrents, because of firewall.
See discussions on THIS thread.

I couldn't find detailed info about how to edit eztables config files.
And I don't have any knowledge about firewalls either.

Trapster on that thread gave two iptables commands to allow UDP incoming and outgoing.
Similar can be made for ftp I suppose.

If anyone can give some sort of guide for editing eztables config for torrents and ftp, it would be immensely helpful.
