I have bluetooth working. But I'm running it on the platform for which the application was originally developed.

Trying to do otherwise is a waste of time.

[quote="petihar"]Bonjour, peebee, rcrsn51 and everyone...

I can't get the bluetooth to work either and, I think this functionality is sorely lacking in this UPupBB otherwise so successful.

What a shame to have to go through windows to use a bluetooth accessory Mad .

It's not a shame...one needs to realize that all of the OS available to use are simply tools...none of them do everything and everything well. It's akin to a carpenter shop or a blacksmith shop....those folks have numerous tools with the same name but different capabilities....While the smith may have his favorite hammer, his favorite tongs, you'd be hard pressed to find a smith that will only use one hammer or one set of tongs,,,he knows from experience that he needs multiple tools

One small problem with pMount (yes, another one I'm afraid!). I've set the pMount window to have the tabs for categories, instead of all in one window. Strangely, the external USB HDD is not showing up under the 'usbdrv' tab.....it's showing-up under 'optical'? Which probably explains why it wasn't showing in the main, single window.....

Hi Mike

Can you post the outputs from the probedisk and probepart commands please?

Thanks
peebee

@ITSMERSH - get the new .iso .....

I would like to remaster upupbb...but I don't know how to:
1. answer the question about compressing one file(fdriv?????)
2. what to do with the sfs files in the distro...do they get copied to the directory the remaster script creates?

Thanks in advance for pointing me in the right direction.

I have made many re-masters that require some files from /etc that the remaster scripts that are stock with Puppies seem to leave behind and not copy into the remaster file structure before iso creation. So I began to use this as a guide line and did mine manually. One tip is to reboot just before using a remaster script to ensure the save folder/file is complete. If in your case this is applicable, I also had to ensure that files like /etc/passwd are transferred complete with any users added (i.e. www-data or mysql to install stock Apache and Mysql or MariaDB)

this is what I use as a guide. http://www.smokey01.com/coolpup/remastering.html

if anyone is interested I have compiled a kernel 4.16.9 PAE enabled 32 bit
using the kernel-kit and woof-CE to build a Bionic Pup 18.05 using this newly built 4.16.9 kernel.

I could make available just the kernel and sources,headers,etc..... or I could upload and make a link to get the ISO and devx for it.

may save some time for someone....it took about 8 hours to compile the kernel and run woof-CE to completion.

I am using it with palemoon installed to type this up. I think one could add the adrv.sfs with the Light browser to the frugal directory and have an instant browser from the peebee Bionic

I have remastered other puppies and I think it's a not so good deal. There is an authomated script in Menu-Setup with many choices: it depends on your needs what choices to choose. The main problem is a manual review of /etc and /root dirs for removing or adding many wanted or unwanted configuration files with attention to privacy (the remastered puppy can be privately used or reditributed...). You have to unload the used sfs before remastering because they are copied in main sfs file of the remastered pup which can become very heavy. You have alternatives to remastering. For example put in a dir all downloaded and installed packages and run in that dir the alien2puppy script to make a single sfs which you can load to use your software (you can copy it the adrv.sfs and build a new iso without changing the main sfs file).

Thanks for all the suggestions...although none of them, as far as I can tell, answered the two questions I posed.

If the SFS files are loaded at remaster time, they will be written in to the remastered version as part of the file structure. They will be in this way included in the new puppy.*.sfs


Quote:

do mean creating an sfs? or a query from the remaster script?

here is the link for upupbb-18.05-k4169.iso 32 bit ->

MD5 : 32deba6072976243844b9ae34520c1c1 upupbb-18.05-k4169.iso

https://drive.google.com/open?id=15qCK3EoSOOpSI6TMF_7FGralEYeWst0g

the link for the devx ->

MD5 : dbbe72129a31b4d58514d1a0ad6d233e devx_upupbb_18.05-k4169.sfs

https://drive.google.com/open?id=19Zy0qQOxoDGadNLkwy5eRim_kxQMZwC1

this is an adrv_upupbb_18.05.sfs of the Palemoon browser v27.9.2 ->

https://drive.google.com/open?id=1l11QKQkB-EhPMgP9CUtWb5YUYv9_Ko9g


the adrv for Mozilla Light browser one can retrieve from peebee's ISO, just
place the adrv sfs file in the directory with the main puppy OS files.

Here's what will be copied into the build directory on a remaster:
Code:
   for F in ${ZDRVSFS} vmlinuz initrd.gz  grldr *efi* *EFI* *.c32 *.sh *.lst *.xpm *.jpg *.png *.bin *.cfg *.msg *.16 *.HTM* *.ICO *.INF help
   do
     #130223 -n means do not override an existing file... 130304 hmmm, -n not supported, use -u ...
     [ -e "$F" ] && cp -a -u $F $WKGMNTPT/puppylivecdbuild/
     sync
   done

As one can see: .sfs is NOT listed. So, extra SFS apart from A-F-Y-Zdrv SFS Modules will not be copied.

This is what the remaster script will keep, if chosen to customize the new SFS:
Code:
 cp -af /etc/codepage /tmp/etc/
 cp -af /etc/fontmap /tmp/etc/
 cp -af /etc/keymap /tmp/etc/
 cp -af /etc/mousedevice /tmp/etc/
 cp -af /etc/eth0mode /tmp/etc/
 cp -af /etc/eth1mode /tmp/etc/
 cp -af /etc/resolv.conf /tmp/etc/
 rm -f /tmp/etc/localtime #a symlink
 cp -af /etc/localtime /tmp/etc/
 cp -af /etc/TZ /tmp/etc/
 cp -af /etc/cdburnerdevice /tmp/etc/
 cp -af /etc/dvddevice /tmp/etc/
 cp -af /etc/modemdevice /tmp/etc/
 cp -af /etc/securetelnetrc /tmp/etc/
 cp -af /etc/modules.conf /tmp/etc/
 cp -af /etc/modprobe.d /tmp/etc/ #101020
 cp -af /etc/rdesktoprc /tmp/etc/
 cp -af /etc/windowmanager /tmp/etc/
 cp -af /etc/X11/xorg.conf /tmp/etc/X11
 cp -af /etc/network-wizard /tmp/etc/
 cp -af /etc/simple_network_setup/* /tmp/etc/simple_network_setup/
