Hmmm, interesting sounding app. I'm a real potential fan of cherrytree - potential in the sense I've looked at it and liked its great import/export capabilities so planning to adopt it once I stop being as busy as I am at the moment. But now, this app confuses my choice of what to use a bit. I'll probably still use cherrytree but I like that the app you are posting about seems to use separate files, so a bit more like a simple document management system, whereas cherrytree seems to keep everything in one big file (though can link to any file on the system, so that's very attractive concept too).

Basically, I keep planning to organise my life but too busy to get started on that usually...

Hi Doglover,

Do you mean when you tried to boot the iso you created? If so:

- Which puppy did you try to build? (slacko, tahr, debian.... 14.2, 14.1.... 32-bit, 64-bit)
- Which OS did you use to build it with?
- How did you try booting it (CD, HDD, Flash) and what program did you use to boot the iso?
- Did you use the instructions on post 1 in this thread?
- Which kernel did you select?
- Guessing that you used the default testing branch?
- Guessing that all the required files are in your boot directory (initrd.gz, vmlinuz, *puppy.sfs, zdrv*.sfs)?
- What are the specs of your CPU? Does it support 64-bit and/or PAE?
- Does the distroname you tried to build boot if you use the official iso instead of the one you made?

I wasn't able to build xenial64 using xenial64-7.0.8.5 as a base for some reason so just used slacko64 to build it then using that xenial64 to build itself worked.

Hi Billtoo, Sailor and all,

Can I ask: if any of you have done a "xenial64" build recently (say, past 3-4 weeks), from either the "rationalise" and/or "testing" branch?? Has anything at all been corrected in xenial64 since we all reported problems it had or existed some months back? I know Xenial will run and work and all, thqat's not my question here. What bothers me is I've done some builds very recently (just the other day), and I am still seeing----after reporting the problems nearly 3 months ago---the exact same problems existing in Xenial.

I guess I am wondering why they're not getting fixed---is this because Phil is gone and/or too busy at the moment to come back & correct them? Is there no one else? No one that can correct the stuff we point out when a distro is a 'woof-CE' build? It's frustrating to keep building stuff (for example, dpup is a walking nightmare---nothing has changed in it since ttuuxxx left---you build it right now, it is still full of the exact same problems that Musher, myself. Oscar & others pointed out long ago. With Xenial64, I am still seeing the exact same problems exist too---not woof-CE build problems (jilst still somehow manages to get stuff fixed, which is amazing)---but I am asking about specific distro-related problems? Can only the developer make those changes/fixes??



P.S. I know Barry would probably cringe at me for saying this, but with the way things are going, his Easy Linux 0.4 ought to be moved back as one of the flagship pups on Murga, and Peebee's LxPupSc(s) ought to be moved to being thee flagship. Peebee's creations are by a long shot the most polished, most stable, and easy-ready-to-use-for-all out of the box---and most importantly, he stays on top of them like no one else's business. This is getting tough overall with Phil and Micko both seemingly gone.....something's gotta change on Murga here. I'm not trying to be mean and/or rude here, I am just am trying to state the obvious. Why should we keep doing builds when we (ourselves) have to keep correcting the same errors/problems that were pointed out months ago? It is frustrating. You know, on murga, there is absence, and then there is ABSENCE Crying or Very sad Come on, please, something has to change.

Hi Bill,

Yeah, xenial64 works and works ok.....I just did a build of it yesterday...but I'll be bugger-to-all that nearly all of the problems we pointed out in the Xenial64 thread months ago, I still have to account for and fix them. It's disheartening...and I am testing (like you) across many different machines, memory and chips. Sometimes I think our old Compaq is our most battle-hardened machine & we should just stick to it Sad

A couple of apps have been fixed in the latest woof-CE builds, mpv and kodi now work where they didn't in 7.0.8.5.
The package manager works great, the slacko package manager works but it's much slower.
It has a lot of applications that can be installed.

It's my favorite pup, slacko is my 2nd favorite.

EDIT: I may be wrong about mpv and kodi in 7.0.8.5, they don't work in the rationalise brand build but they do in the latest testing branch build.

Given that Phil is gone (for now?), you actually expect "someone else" to scan that thread for the "pointers", deciphers what is actually reported, decode if it is a woof issue, some of Phill's customisations, Ubuntu package(s) that do(es) not play well with puppy, hardware/driver/kernel quirk or plain voodoo, and fix it (even if is not a woof issue)?!?

I would suggest that if you have any good indication suggesting that is a woof-generated problem to file an issue at github, one for each problem you see, and hope that "someone" will look at it.
The more informative the bug/issue report is, the more likely for a solution to be attempted Wink

If it is not a woof issue you must entice/allure/pay someone to pickup where Phil left and hopefully address the issues pointed out.

I tried a vanilla puduan-7.0.0a2-2 build (no added changes) today with woof-CE. Here's the iso it made:
http://www.mediafire.com/file/8lr7piyl4z653ws
md5sum: bde6dda589afa9714db1c85efe2dd858

It comes with the devx and choice of two kernels. I downloaded Firefox-52.4esr from PPM and played with it and mpv for a while.

Works well (on a brief test).
It has the "missing icons" issue, common in a lot of debian/devuan builds.
This is because the pets used.
The ROX pet does not have defaultterminal in globicons at all.
Some of rcrsn51's Peasy* pets do not provide their own icons and rely on the older puppy icon set.
Either the pets should be updated, or provide icons/change default in the z-hack pet.
This is also true (update pet) for freememapplet tray . It needs to be recompiled. I think ttuuxxx did it at some point for his debian builds (no pet tho) and it works fine in your devuan.
