PostPosted: Fri 20 Nov 2015, 03:13    Post subject: MintPup running now from a 4GB pendrive  

MintPup running now from a 4GB pendrive previously with Ubuntu on it and erased.
Sure yesterday it was a challenge for me o practice MintPup. Hybrid between my Ubuntu and My Dear Puppies.
Pupsaves are easy to do. Mintpup hardly creates a save of 250MB size, extension omitted (2fs)
I had to load (and learn how-to) Firefox sfs, security rules in DILLO 3 preventing me from access at my FAI (Fournisseur access Internet Internet supplier )
Very Happy In spite of some difficulties, MintPup is installed in my laptop. Root would consider that's enough and go away to another challenge.
User asks for some applications not found in Puppy Linux, wonderful mini distro, but so fast, Synaptic is quite desertic, a no man's land Confused
If some geeks interested in, read the french topic here Si vous êtes intéressés, allez lire le forum francophone en cliquant le lien bleu Smile

Maybe this will solve the problem with Dillo:
Code:
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install ca-certificates

Your screenshot here shows the package information is not updated yet.
Click Reload button or close synaptic and run in terminal:
Code:
sudo apt-get update

And start Synaptic again. Then you will see over 46 000 packages to choose from.

Browser Dillo 3 certificates, i will do as you advise. So i installed a firefox SFS, But at reboot, in spite of my save file .2fs exist but did not load.
Synaptic : if i can really access the packages, Mintpup will be of great interest.
I will feed back my progress or failures.

I don't think getting help from forum francophone. Medor wants to get the the topic locked,
Explaining linux subjects in english is really a hard skill, even for me

Type blkid in terminal and use the correct uuid number for your 4Gb flash drive:
Code:
blkid
/dev/sda1: UUID="f8ac3a48-1d1c-40cc-a5fe-f8177731b457" TYPE="ext3"

Example boot codes for grub4dos menu.lst:

Save folder - folder changes will be auto created inside /casper. Use this only if 4Gb flash drive is ext2, ext3 or ext4:
Code:
title MintPup porteus-boot save in /casper/changes folder (/dev/sda1)
 uuid f8ac3a48-1d1c-40cc-a5fe-f8177731b457
 kernel /casper/vmlinuz noauto from=/ changes=/casper/
 initrd /casper/initrd1.xz


Save file:
Download and extract 1Gb empty live-rw save file inside /casper folder on your 4Gb flash drive:
http://smokey01.com/saintless/1gb-example-save-file.zip
Keep the name live-rw and use:
Code:
title MintPup porteus-boot save in /casper/live-rw file (/dev/sda1)
 uuid f8ac3a48-1d1c-40cc-a5fe-f8177731b457
 kernel /casper/vmlinuz noauto from=/ changes=/casper/live-rw
 initrd /casper/initrd1.xz


Rename live-rw to changes.dat and use:
Code:
title MintPup porteus-boot save in /casper/changes.dat file (/dev/sda1)
 uuid f8ac3a48-1d1c-40cc-a5fe-f8177731b457
 kernel /casper/vmlinuz noauto from=/ changes=/casper/changes.dat
 initrd /casper/initrd1.xz


Rename live-rw to pelo.2fs and use:
Code:
title MintPup porteus-boot save in /casper/pelo.2fs file (/dev/sda1)
 uuid f8ac3a48-1d1c-40cc-a5fe-f8177731b457
 kernel /casper/vmlinuz noauto from=/ changes=/casper/pelo.2fs
 initrd /casper/initrd1.xz


If you post the code you use to boot 4Gb flash drive with MintPup I will try to explain better.

PostPosted: Mon 21 Dec 2015, 09:39    Post subject: Add-Apt-Repository
Subject description: Is it broke?
 

I know what to do to add repositories, but for an unknown reason, it's not doable with MintPup. There is an error message each time i try using add-apt-repository.

I tried the SFS you provide, and also some packages from Mint repo. None works.

Some apps from third-party repositories are interesting, and i would like to install them. But it's not possible from what i know. Maybe, this is a bug with Mint 17.x itself?

I did download and install the appropriate packages with DebianDog, and i was able to install some apps from the add-apt-repository command line, taking into account the warning against using it in a Debian system. I never had an issue with compatibility for the few apps i installed, via add-apt-repository in DebianDog.

But when trying to do the same with MintPup, it seems a bug is preventing users to perform an add-apt-repository.

Do you have a definitive answer about that? Is a fix coming soon?
Maybe some config files should be altered in some way to make it work? Uncommenting something?

What is the result for you with variety ppa from the above example?
What ppa repositories give errors?
Do you still get errors with fresh mintpup frugal install (without using save file/folder with new installed programs and custom changes)?

Thanks.

I have proof the problem is not linked to MintPup or Mint. I will try your suggestion, and use your SFS on a fresh install, without save file, and see what happens from there.

So far, your MintPup is giving me satisfaction on all points, except this add-apt-repository issue, that i hope i can solve.

I would like to tell about another issue i have with the memory applet not showing in the latest ISO of MintPup. I think i saw somewhere how to solve this issue, but now i don't find it in the forum.

There is only one mintpup iso for now.
Try Utility --> Freememapplet ON
It is off by default.
See the screenshot here:

Just confirming that add-apt-repository works fine for me too (after first loading the DEVX squashed filesystem).
