Hi capoverde,
I am locked out of the server that holds
http://puppylinux.ca/tpp/ttuuxxx/Libs and have pointed .ca to .asia.

The .asia server doesn't have the /libs directory but I should have access to the broken server soon (I hope).

I will post the link when I get the server up and running again here
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=47023...sorry for the troubles.
Eric

OK Eric, nothing urgent here but hope you can easily get it straight again. Ya know, once accustomed to something nice, it's hard to miss it!

And just a line to thank you for your considerable contribution to Puppy.

At one time, the entire collection of library files was offered as lib.tar.gz
I downloaded it.
The compressed file is 270 megs though.
I do not know how compatible it is with different versions of Puppy, but I do have it and if my damn DSL internet connection stayed up long enough, I could upload it somewhere.

Hi 8-bit,capoverde
That tar.gz file has all the libs as ttuuxxx zipped it for a reload awhile back.
If you can, upload it somewhere (unzipped) as it's a handy bunch of libs and my copy is corrupt now.

Thanks for the kind words,
Eric

Sub_title: problems viewing
 

I have been trying to get into the various folders created by ttuuxxx and all I get is a relisting of the original page. The folder links show in the address bar as being sub-folders of the one clicked on, but the display is always the same as http://puppylinux.asia/tpp/ttuuxxx/Libs

Is there a single repository someplace that gives all the libraries that are need for compiling CUPS? That is what I am trying to compile and why I need the libraries. Sad

I too am looking for some hard to find libs that are in this dbase but now are unreachable.
If anyone has that tar file of all the libs, id be happy to throw it on my seedbox and make a .torrent for everyone to grab it from. But Im stuck in installing some stuff till I am able to get hold of some libs.

i am trying to install mangler on puppy linux (mangler.org)
i needed libgtkmm-2.4.so.1 or something like that, found it http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=41656 there.

If any of you are compiling you would be best served by properly compiling the dependencies instead of filling the gaps with random libraries.

Hi sikpuppy some people don't know how to compile, and also don't understand the how to compile static like libgtkmm is compiled in puppy to save space. The libs from this location was intended for 3 series and most have worked on 4. Which has made lots of people happy.

Do you still have that link to get it from.
I missed somehow and have a libs.tar.gz of 25MB, which isn't the one we are speaking about here.

I agree

it would do you much better to know what packages you need to install a program correctly



---------------------------------------------------------------------
all the libs in the above thread came from slackware 12
I hope that is clear
--------------------------------------------------------------------


if you installed a package with missing libs please inform the person who made the package

blindly filing in missing libs is a linux no no

but if you want the unlimited supply of slackware libs look here http://slackfind.net/en/packages/search/?name=man

I know some people can't compile, my point is that some of the people who posted here have compiled, then are using this to fill in missing libs. If they are capable of compiling (and it's not rocket science for goodness sakes) then they are kidding themselves if they just fill in missing dependencies with random libs.

They may as well just create a blank text file, call it the name of the lib and make it executable Razz

They should properly compile the missing dependencies, with th correct version numbers, if they have gone to the trouble of compiling at all.

My problem is that after installing some programs I get a message about a missing dependancy that the package manager doesnt know where to find it. I would happily install whatever package that lib file is in... but I dont know it. So I go to search online and usually find that other people have been searching for that lib too, and then I can grab it.
Do you know of a way to search for lib.hard.to.find.so.1 and find out what package its in so I can then grab that entire package? I have yet to figure out how to do that. So If I am missing some piece of information, please let me know. Because I find it to be a huge pain trying to track down certain libs since I have no clue what package they are apart of.


In other news, has anyone found this tar yet?

I'm looking for solutions here, too. It seems like some .pet packages available here lead down never-ending roads of missing dependencies. I don't know enough about Puppy or Linux in general to provide any solutions, but I understand that going through blindly installing missing dependency .pets isn't getting it done the right way.

Any help here?

I'm uploading the libs right now, this time they are tar.gz and that way the system links don't get broken, another user tar.gz them all like a year ago, which will save a lot of server space and makes it quick to upload 583 packages, about 30 mins worth of uploads
