Subject description: Puppy Recycles

Thanks ttuuxxx

Not a bad idea re the forum thread: Puppy Recycles.
Since starting with puppy the forum has already taught me heaps, what I thought was scary is now a real challenge, when something doesn't work I scour the forums to find the answer and so far have succeeded.
Getting my Vodafone modem to work was the clincher. Now there's no looking back too Microsoft only forwards to puppy.........

Would be too glad to help where I can in relation to older hardware. I only recently turfed out a heap of old stuff (before I found puppy)
However I still have heaps of different systems and new ones too. Can't seem to help myself re hardware.
I fear after finding puppy by accident this will only make my addiction worse!

My goal now is promoting puppy to all and sundry who will listen
Yell it out loud and clear

I have a question

Does anyone know an easy way to categorize the posts here, so that people can may meet up/contact with others offering similar/related help....?

For Example: Colonel Schell is starting to organise updating manuals/info, [a much recognised need] and several have offered help here, but aren't linked to his announcement/ thread....

If you are interested....

maybe level 2 i can make pets, and sfs files. i have only used linux for around 2 years.I started running web servers on windows and switched to linux, hell i still have a windows server still running cuzz just to lazy to switch to linux.If anyone needs files hosted or mirrored i have alot of space.i have very crude skills in html, and php. i am decent at mysql but used it mostly in my windows days.i have very bad writing skills and am not good at putting my thoughts to words.

I love puppy and have it on 6 of my 7 computers i use, well besides the one windows server.

i do not use irc much but can message me here on the forum.

username forum = saturn
puppy linux irc nickname = Xrter ,moderator

i'm barely a level two kinda between one and two to be honest in the fact that I am not totally new to puppy(been using it since 2006) but more to the fact that i know basic housekeeping tasks ,how to install and such and the only programming knowledge i have is a basic understanding of c,c++ and html
I am a bandwith sponsor serving up a recorded eight gb's of pets a day according to host monster's aw stats program

and I am also trying to help the community out by starting a better, more robust and capable wikki with Iguleder in the hopes it will be on par with other major distro documentation such as debian and arch
we are looking to compose articles that are very through ,extensive, and easy to understand in plain english

more info here:


so ya I am level two guy just not too big on programming

that is all

I've started contributing, I'm no programmer, but I'm good with Html & CSS & Graphics design in general. I've been trying to learn PHP, so if any of you PHP guru's can spare some time, help me where you can.

I have a good appreciation of linux system structure, I'm slowly learning bash scripting, I know quite a bit about how Ubuntu works.

So I put myself at level 2...

If I can help in any way (that might challenge/improve my skills), & other than just making pet's and sfs's then give me a PM.

PS. I'm also hoping to learn more about python programs and how they can be made into executables - so I guess I better start learning python too...

Level 1 going on 1-1/2.

I haven't picked up on all the proper vocabulary (what's a symlink?) but I catch on fast and I'm learning to do some pretty advanced stuff. Just don't ask me to debug it on my own Laughing

e.g. made two pets (from debs) that don't work yet. I've very little idea as to what's broken.

Be happy to offer slightly old hardware (5+ yrs of age) as well, but I'll have to charge a little for it, mostly for shipping.

Glad to see so many users willing to contribute to open development! I've been cold for 2 years now, but am going to start looking back at new compilations and see what's changed. As for everyone saying you don't know linux..that's OK. Linux kernel is very established, and the key players aren't leaving..ever. The BIG thing is your wide range of skills here. If you can PHP, Java, C+, C#, etc. then you have the ability to compile native to linux via those skills. Take applications you enjoy now and spice them up. Don't like the GUI? Change it! Think it needs a new button? Add it and upload! cant build a PET file? Look over the list here..tons of people are getting good. Communicate your needs, and pass the files to be packaged! Lots of "the other system" has programs that can be translated be skilled coders. We "open sourcers" NEED that to keep this platform meeting OUR demands.

As for an earlier question, symlinks are just a linux equivalent to a shortcut in proprietary systems. It's a redirect within another file location. Generally this practice is supposed to help eliminate file redundancy, and in general it does exactly that. Dependent files are structured this way. If java is required to run the program, why have a second copy of it? You don't. You require java, then in your own package include symlinks within the files to the standard java locations.. OR creat a script that serached for the version of java and creates a sym link during the installation. Both are practiced, and in some cases both are used together to form low level fail safe loading.

The MAJOR DIFFERENCE from the big guys, and this system is FILE STRUCTURE. The user base is defining it day by day. HOPEFULLY.. If you plan to develop a package, you follow through with writting down the logical structure and create the appropriate file layout for your program based on what exists. IE- if you need a temp folder for a subroutine, just reference an existing location for that. Why create "Temp" when you already have "temp" or "tmp". Wink
