PostPosted: Sun 25 Feb 2018, 11:22    Post subject: Clarification needed  

hamoudoudou: "Packages to install: 24
Total download size: 71Mb
Approximate disk space needed for installation: 215Mb
You need more disk space to install the following package" Emphasis supplied.

At that point did puppy-get terminate, download the debs anyway, or something else?

What space is puppy-get measuring? The amount of available RAM in Puppy's "Merge-file system"? The unused space in a SaveFile/Folder?

Using pet-get is it possible to download and not install? Download to a folder external to "Puppy-Space" in order to use the debs to create an SFS? Delete duplicate debs whose files are already part of one's system before installation/creation of an SFS?

A puppy-get just gives info not enough place. process terminated, has to be lauched again , what is ok
B The unused space in a SaveFile/Folder
C Negative. to be verified
D Dowloaded stuff can be removed after aplications were installed, that is nice. Then you can do an SFS with them before removing
Not verified. (Where are they ?)
More accurate answers later.. My purpose is to find a tool that dowload apps better than PPM, not a different way. XenialDog Does it .
My Questions (i am used to find my answers alone) mistfire is a gentleman, never he let me with unanwered questions :
updating database is half an hour for artfulpup. Done. Better to update for each pupsave, i want to copy past the database.. Where is it stored ?

"Logical entities must not be multiplied beyond necessity." Nice ! Some VIP fail with usual process, then they think that the process is bad.

Some clarifications. puppy-get estimates total disk space used by the target package and compares it with free disk space of a drive (full install/save folder) or free space remaining in savefile.

@hamoudoudou yes it is just edit the PPM repo and package list information. puppy-get relies on PPM files

Hi mistfire,
Just a curious question, why not add original apt-get to puppy?
The DebianDog, XenialDog have it I believe.
And they aren't much bigger than Xenialpup.

I say it purely as a user that I am.
I have no idea how many loops and tricks you have to go through to achieve it.

PostPosted: Tue 27 Feb 2018, 05:34    Post subject: Apt-get, why not. Yet tried by Josejp2424.  

Like slim slacko was different, and succesfull, puppy-get has to produce results different vs
PPM, to give a reason to exist.
Apt-get, why not. Yet tried by Josejp2424... hum his apt-get is far from to get good results
Apt-get was in jejy69 puppy (available in my tool case at home)

@drunkendeji I really want to add apt-get puppy however it was too bloated and it has many dependencies. The principle behind puppy-get was just a recursion to scan the dependencies needed to download
