it would be nice if the woof-ce guys
would make a small simple script
to build a small simple puppy
that could be extended in stages
and post it on the forum
so non woof-ce guys
could make their own puppies
and learn the system
however i do not think that is going to happen

Incorrect. It happened but not too many was interested. Read my post here: http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=1027143#1027143. The code is still online and still works (for slackware repo - I just did a test build. For debian sid, they have moved on too much, we need a new package list and more patching. For ubuntu, they have removed utopic and trusty repos, so can't build anymore. We need updated package list and patching for newer ubuntus). I've done my share, I've completed my due. Now it's time to pass on the torch.

Onwards and upwards, wanderer!

hi jamesbond

yeah you are right

i apologize

i have gotten into the habit of whining about woof-ce

what is my problem

how can i demand others do stuff for me

but

i did not know that your work existed

i am going to look at it

because even though i cant code

i might be able to use it and learn from it

this is a do-ocracy

it you want it

do it

this project is fun for me

i have done it before up to a stage

but this i will do to completion

and im tired of whining about whats wrong with puppy

and puppy for the common man

i dont care if anyone else joins me

but if they do

i will appreciate it

maybe others will find it interesting or useful

but this is a useful hobby for me

i do this instead of playing video games

your thread has inspired me

and your advice is appreciated


i will post more after i catch my breath

hi jamesbond

i chose slackware

but it said

/bin/dash: bad interpreter: No such file or directory
Installation of aaa_base failed.

why is it trying to use dash

shouldn't it be ash or bash
