I have alot of space so i just run Puppy 4.2 open the squash file, put contents in folder.
Reboot into Woof (Alpha 9) and use the dir2sfs for the folder. Then I add in boot manager and restart Woof.

Works, I have:
-Netbeans_jdk-6.5.1_1.6u14_476.sfs
-Openoffice-2.2.0_476.sfs
-xampp-linux-1.7_476.sfs

They all work! Thank You for your time but i figured it out right after my post.

If we have a place to put these I'll give them.


No problem Smile just remember if you use the pet above, all you do is drag and drop the 3-4 series sfs on it and it expands into /root/squashfs-root and just rename it and make your new sfs, saves the need for 2 OS, and rebooting Smile

Subject description: Dotpet combines latest Intel modem changes with the 3G upgrade - supercedes my previous posting here
 

Barry,
Here, at last, is my modem contribution to the next release after alpha9. Because the Intel and 3G parts both use the updated modemtest script, they are merged into this combined package. It is a dotpet, so people can experiment before you integrate this into P5 (and wherever else it goes from there).

I have attempted to anticipate how you would annotate the history entries in some of the /usr/sbin files. Not knowing how you will identify the next release, I used "v477" to represent it, for my recent changes to them. The "v477"s will probably need to be changed.

Please notice the files I remove in the pinstall.sh file. Since the Intel support no longer uses /dev/536 and /dev/537, those files can be removed from Puppy. The new nodes appear automatically. Also note that I deleted some rules files that were named incorrectly. I have replaced them with correctly named (and updated) files.

For full support of the wireless modems, the following packages are required from: http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=266979#266979
usb_modeswitch-1.0.2.pet
hso-udev-2008-09.pet

They contain the mode-switching tools for both types of the Option modems. In hso-udev, the essential files are those in /usr/sbin and /etc. The other files appear to be part of advanced usage of the modems, which I have not investigated. But they are small.

Subject description: installing lite gnome games into turbopup alpha 3
 

ttuuxxx, as the lite gnome games pet worked so well in u476 i thought i would try and install them in turbopup alpha 3 which i tend to use a lot

Unfortunatly i received the dreaded missing dependences message (attached)

Went to ubuntu 9.04 and searched for the missing dependences and copied them into turbopup alpha 3, still no joy looking for a bit of guidance

All menu entries are present

At least the exercise has made me work out how to take a screen shot with shot-.1.1.pet

)apologies, attachment doesnt want to show up, i will e/myou agian when i work it out)

Health, Wealth and Happiness for the future

Another 50mm of rain overnight, its like living in a swamp at the moment

Does anybody know if the Java Development Kit is inbuild in devx ?

I wanted just to try compiling ANDROID for my Pocket PC with puppy linux but it requiere JDK 5.0 from SUN.

http://source.android.com/download

http://java.sun.com/javase/downloads/

Is it possible to have JDK in devx ?

Hi you would probably have the devx running then recompile gcc, The reason why is that when compiling gcc as an option you add java capabilities to gcc, Then you would just have to download jdk from sun and install it, Compiling gcc takes about 2GB of space.

Hello ttuuxxx.

Thank you a lot for your fast answer.

I didnt know that gcc need to be rebuilded. This make the whole thing a litlle more complicated now.

It is really pitty that with puppy linux at the moment android cant be builded from scratch.

I am especially interessted for building the linux msm kernel.

P.S. Only for information. Here is a Video from google that show the future and potetial for linux in the mobile world in comparisation to the PC World. It put you out of the shooes. Especially the Numbers.

Hi peter I don't think its possible, I had most of the missing libs already compiled on earlier 4 series, like the gnome parts etc, but hen I tried it, it was missing a newer glibC that isn't in puppy, and well it seg faulted when exec, I would say the best way to do those games is to compile it all from scratch. It would be much smaller also. I don't have the time right now to focus on compiling like 20+ packages for 1 game series:)
But who knows maybe in the future, until then maybe just use Upup for the games.

ttuuxxx, thank you for the advice, understand time priority equation

decided to go back to using your 4.2v2 puppy for a while, you have motivated me to consider having a go at compiling from source one of the gnome games in the next couple of months

regards

Finally got around to some preliminary testing of woof alpha 9 on my Acer Aspire One. Currently running off a live USB stick created with unetbootin. (1) I was able to connect to my brother-in-law's WPA-protected network without any problems. (2) Sound works. (3) SD cards are recognized, but needed
Code:
 modprobe pciehp pciep_force=1
to recognize a card inserted after booting. (4) Could not save pupsave file to an SD card. The SD card were mounted, and showed up in the dropdown list of partitions, but when one of those partitions was selected, I got an error message telling me that no partition was selected.

PostPosted: Tue 30 Jun 2009, 15:36    Post subject: XAMPP  

I redid the XAMPP package by MU, to the newer sfs. It boots and work's fine. But, MySQL doesn't connect? I also checked the XAMPP Forum...

Here's a screen of my start and stop.

I believe it has to do with MySQL uid's.

I tried the new Firefox3.5.pet and my system froze! Rebooted and Firefox won't start, no messages when starting from rxvt either.

Help?

Runs the wifi, very quick, had to use vesa I think the rez is set to 1280x768 instead of 1280x800 but useable.
I ran renoise on this and didn't have to set up realtime scheduling? I wonder what puppy would be like with realtime premtive kernel, zipp...
I'm new, alot to learn. A great platform for netbook audio tracking.
Also, I need to find out about .pet version compatibility, I think I saw via chome video drivers as a .pet but having trouble finding them.

Best distro I've tried on this netbook, I feel at home, I'm staying.

Gnumeric appears to work since it opens and can open existing files. However, data cannot be entered to create a new spreadsheet and data cannot be changed in an existing spreadsheet.
