Thanks for the advice about PPM. I always assumed that it was a safe source, but apparently it's just an invitation to problems.

I think the main problem with 6.05 was that I could not get the nvidia driver to install. I need it for my main application, and for general eye comfort.

I forgot at which version of puppylinux I switched my everyday computer from nvidia based desktop to amd based laptop.
I am not sure if I was using 32bit Tahr-6.0.5 with nvidia or amd.
I recall when using the nvidia computer I had general success using 32bit getnvidia.

You are our eyes. We only know what you tell us. Shocked Exclamation Exclamation Exclamation

f that is the case, what could the problem be? If not Wine, then Virtualbox, or are there issues with that as well?

Tahrpup is installed running in Virtualbox????


You installed Tahrpup64 as a frugal or full install?
If frugal, using a save file or a save folder?
What format is the installed location?

Do not get to hung up on using Wine stable versions.
The latest version of Wine has the best chance of being able to run stuff.

The latest versions of Puppy have changed Puppy a lot.

Try this version of Wine that has a version compiled for Tahrpup.

I have to ask.
You do understand how to install a pet package of a program?

Thanks again for advice. Here's the answer to the first question.
Quote:

root# winecfg
err:module:load_builtin_dll failed to load .so lib for builtin L"winemp3.acm": libmpg123.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
err:winediag:nulldrv_CreateWindow Application tried to create a window, but no driver could be loaded.
err:winediag:nulldrv_CreateWindow Unknown error (127).


Actually I meant that if Wine won't work, would VirtualBox be an alternative, though I vastly prefer not to use VB.

The install is Full with a Folder savefile on an ext3 partition in a 186 Gb drive.

I have installed many pet files so I suppose I know how, if you mean petget. Not so handy with command lines.

Thanks bigdog. Regarding a different version of Wine, which one of these would be appropriate?
Quote:

wine-2.11_v3.1.pet _________ tahrpup 6.0.5 PAE [stripped=true]
wine-2.11_v3.2.pet _________ tahrpup 6.0.5 PAE [stripped=false]
wine_DEV-2.11_v3.1.pet ____ tahrpup 6.0.5 PAE
wine_DEV-2.11_v3.2.pet ____ tahrpup 6.0.5 PAE


On the other hand, if I can avoid getting into an endless uninstall loop because of dependencies I would certainly prefer that.

If you do not intend to submit bug reports to winehq.org, then wine-2.11_v3.1.pet should be sufficient.

Thanks version. Will it be necessary to uninstall 2.01 before installing 2.11?

I have read that some users install newer versions of wine without uninstalling the older versions.
I always uninstall old before installing new.

And do you run into a long string of files that are dependent and also need to be uninstalled?

Also, should it be uninstalled via the PPM?

I do not recall getting a long string of dependencies, but I do not generally use 64 bit Tahr.

When uninstalling, I recommend PPM [1] for that task.
For built-in packages, things that are not in the PPM 'Uninstall' list, I use:
Menu > Setup > Remove builtin packages

Could you copy and paste a list of the first set of dependencies that PPM is asking about?

[quoted post]

I am unfamiliar with Full installs.
I only use frugal installs, therefore all my comments are geared toward frugal installs.

Uninstalled 2.01 and Extras without issue, reinstalled 3.1 and extras. Still no wine functionality. I downloaded setup file for a simple windows app which I used previously with Wine and am unable to install now.

Just for the halibut I rebooted and Wine came to life, went looking for Mono and Gecko. Windows app installed with ease. I think we have liftoff.

Thanks for your patience and advice.

I suppose I'll need winetricks. Is there an off-PPM version I should look for?
