Subject description: Needs refining, though. Thanks in advance for any ideas.

Download URLs are five posts down, if interested. BFN.

Edit, Aug 11, 2016, 22:14, EDT:
For the record, the initial pupjibaro-jessie beta by josejp2424, with kernel 3.18.22
and the PPM2, is still available here.

Edit, Aug. 15, 2016, 17:30, EDT:
Success, finally! Thanks to jlst's and 666philb's suggestions.
Some screen caps, starting here.

Hello, all!

As the title says, I finally managed to get the woof-CE to output a Puduan-6.0.0
Puppythat loads all the way to the initial black console.

I need guidance to get Xorg to work. Thanks in advance.

Neither xwin nor xorgwizard do anything at the moment. However, the ati, radeon,
and nouveau drivers (and a few more) are in directory /usr/lib/xorg/modules/drivers.

I've attached below a hardinfo summary for the box I'm working on. If you need
more info, just ask.

Again, many thanks in advance.

Thanks, ally.

If nobody else answers, I guess I'll have to install "screen" instead. Sad Laughing
And make that one a "no X" Puppy. (Just joking!)

try ldd /usr/bin/jwm (if you're using jwm) to see if that's missing anything

Nice musher0! I have a puduan-6.0.0.iso laying around too, don't remember how far it got but it definitely wasn't as successful as the pupjibaro jessie beta. Will have to boot it again sometime and check what 666philb said also. Perhaps there is hope Very Happy

Hello all.

Yeah, Sailor. Cooperation would be appreciated; 2-3 heads would be better than one
on this "lion". I tried it last Fall too and I broke a couple of virtual teeth on it!... Laughing

Thanks for your answers. If you want to try your hand at making it boot all the way
to X and the desktop, here's a temporary download URL:

for the puduan-6.0.0.iso:
http://www112.zippyshare.com/v/JAgLCM69/file.html
(File Life: 30 days after no activity. Thanks to the good people at ZippyShare
for providing their service, BTW.)

for the devx_puduan_6.0.0.sfs file:
http://www105.zippyshare.com/v/4anbg4es/file.html
(Again, file life: 30 days after no activity.)

BFN.

Ongoing experiment note:

I tried
1) copying all the stuff in the zdrv in the main sfs (and renaming the zdrv of course)
2) adding a proper PuppyPin.

Still zilch.

You can now see there's an attempt to go to X, though. There's "some kind of wiggle"
now, whereas there was no movement at all previously.

BFN.

Hello again, phil.

Will ldd jwm as soon as I can get the Xorg running.

As to the kernel 4.3 mentioned in that other thread, I'd rather have, by default, a
lower-numbered kernel such as 3.16 or 3.18 if possible, since the kernels of the 4.*
series make this old dual-core laptop I'm on as slow as "molasses in winter".

BFN.

Hello again, phil.

Hi musher0,

I just tried the ldd thing with your iso also. As you probably found out, jwm is missing libjpeg.so.8 and libfribidi.so.0. I added versions of them to an adrv to test (to be placed in the same folder as puppy.sfs before booting) and now it boots to desktop, but not too much you can do yet besides play with the menu because rox-filer still appears missing (I think). Still, it's a start Wink
adrv_puduan_6.0.0.pet
Description  rename from pet to sfs, then place it in the same folder as puppy_puduan.sfs for it to load at boot

libevdev might get the mouse pointer working .... also grab that script from the link in my post above (stick it in the Adrive above for now or manually place it in the save) ... the script can be run without X .... as can ldd

Thanks jlst. Your "checkdeps /" helped me easily see why many things the menu (urxvt, xlock, gtkdialog) aren't working yet. Very Happy

edit: 666philb's version (find_missing_libs script) looks quite interesting too.

Hi guys.

Thanks Sailor. Your libs brought me to the desktop with jwm active. Smile

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Here is my puduansave file. It contains
1) the small st terminal from suckless.org disguised as rxvt/urxvt through links and
the two libs it needed (tested ok). It's a very simple terminal but it does the job and
this point we don't need the fancy panareters in urxvt. It just needs some proper
mono fonts. In the post below, I'll upload the fonts needed for the st terminal.

2) The ROX-Filer from josejp2424's pupjibaro-Jessie (untested, but since they're
both from debian jessie's build, it should work.

(beware of duplications? It contains Sailor's libs from the adrv.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Finally, are we each working on our own for this? Should we not collaborate?
In particular if we each gather some of the missing libs and share them, we'll all finish faster.

I'm willing to gather the last third of the missing libs and share them with you (make them available to you). What do you say?

BFN

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
puduansave-arf.2fs.zip.zip download:
http://www62.zippyshare.com/v/BrF54rIV/file.html

Unzip twice to get the 2fs pupsave file. This pupsave is 960 Mg's big when
totally unzipped.
