Debian and derivatives have renumbered the TIFF shared library because of incompatibilities introduced around version 3.6.1.

Linking libraries between versions is not usually recommended.
In this one case, it maybe ok to symlink the version on your system to libtiff.so.4, because of the versioning inconsistencies.

If you tell me what program and Puppy you are using I will try that and see if it works.

Subject description: Is there a patch
 

Quote:
Exploit code was made available on the Full Disclosure mailing list on Wednesday. Arnold said that the flaw was introduced into the Linux kernel in 2008 and involves every 64-bit Linux distribution.

"Essentially every distribution is affected, including RHEL, CentOS, Debian, Ubuntu, Parallels Virtuozzo Containers, OpenVZ, CloudLinux, and SuSE, among others," said Arnold.

Red Hat said in an advisory that it had patched its Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) software on Sunday.


Here is something to check for that.

And here's a little more info.

It sounds like enterprise machines are the more likely targets.

Subject description: math software
 

I compiled sage on Fatdog. In order to do so I needed to add header files for the package lzo to /usr/include (lzo download). They are not in the Fatdog devx.sfs. Everything else went smooth, but took some hours to finish.

All tests past successfull at sage -testall.

doicomehereoften1, can you publish your latex pet? Then I can compile a version with latex support and make a sfs.

Hi guys:
Well, all I can say is YES! I just joined the puppy revo and damn you guys scream. I just did a 32 install on my intel dual 2.8 of 5.1 and FatDog on my AmmyQuad. Think I will have to shed the on board sound as it never came up at all. All else is great. The speed at which things happen here is fenominal at the least. So much different than you know ..... And to think, I almost bought 7.

The last three versions of linux that I tried had severe problems. I run lots of usb drives, wireless, scanners, burners yadda yadda. They had probs with it.
A belkin 4 port and 32" tv for a mon, forget it. You guys, all works so far. Not sure on the color laser printer but will have to see.

Super thanks to all the great folks here and hope I can help in some small way.

the tigger that goes WUFF! TW

PostPosted: Sat 09 Oct 2010, 18:38    Post subject: Sudden change of file permissions?  

Hello!

Love the FD500 distro.... works perfectly on my Acer Aspire 4530/AMD64.

Have a question:

Was downloading wallpaper with Firefox to usr/share/background and everything was going great until suddenly (after the fifth download or so), I got an error that the file could not be saved to that folder because of permissions, and to change the permissions or choose another folder.

? How was it working fine to that point? The files to that point made it into the folder fine, as I even stopped after the second dl to set new wallpaper with one of the ones I'd just dl'd there.... then suddenly a few downloads later... the error msg. ??

Went to "/background/" folder -> Permissions -> and chose for the user to be able to read/write. Still didn't work. Nothing worked. Finally had to chose spot folder instead, then manually move them.

I'd be grateful for any insight. Smile

rian,

Firefox normally runs as user spot in Fatdog64, so can only write to folders owned by spot (spot, Downloads). To run as root open a terminal and type firefox or drag /usr/bin/firefox to the desktop.

With the package manager click on configure and then update.

Anniekin,

All of the ext file systems should be supported. I haven't had a problem.

Subject description: CUPS - HP?
 

I am trying to get a printer working on our sons 64-bit laptop with Fatdog64.

He has a school project due ...

The printer is a HP and is one the many that require the special driver.

May we use the generic hplip or fooxxx or do we need to be sure to use one compiled for Fatdog64, please?

Thanks!

Subject description: Alpine 2.00 pet for Fatdog64
 

Please help yourself to our pet of Alpine 2.00 text-based news & email client.

It is compiled under and for Fatdog64 from full source.
Fat!

Alpine can be started from the CLI or menu.

This is a secure, easy to use, and highly configurable program.


One can access multiple remote mailboxes and bookmark files.
Multiple user identities (roles) may be setup.

Cascading config files can be made giving users limited control over setup options and predefining the rest.

Tips aimed at Pine users should also work for Alpine.

Colors can be set from the Alpine program (Main => Setup => Kolor) &/or from the loader script.
To do that look into "rxvt -help" at command line. Change the code calling the terminal emulator (rxvt) in:
/root/my-aplications/bin/alpine.sh

We use this file to make it easy.

Alpine can be setup from within the application or by editing .pinerc file(s)--many tips are to be found in the comments of .pinerc.

If you use pop3 mailbox access I suggest using the #move format.
This prevents the mailbox from timing out. Timed out mailboxes can cause "shrink" errors saving mail.
That breaks local mail folders (they can be fixed with a hex editor by deleting partly downloaded data).

eg. (in .pinerc)
Nickname "#move {your.server.com:25/pop3/ssl/user=you}inbox /home/user/mail/mailbox"


Overall I prefer IMAP access with tls or ssl.

eg.
Nickname {your.server.com/tls/user=you}inbox


Alpine can be setup before running by importing /root/.pinerc.
There is also a tool for importing remote setup and address books.


Should this be placed into the FatDog repository?

My ten year old son and I made it. Use as-is or modify to improve this pet.
Enjoy!

moB & Magnus


ps. If it's good enough for Linus, it's good enough for us. No?

John Murga seems to have run out of disc space!

Maximum size on uploads is now 0 (yes, zero) bytes Rolling Eyes

Look here: http://ieinc.ca/Magnus/logo/alpine-2.00.pet

It has the usual Puppy login/password.

If using wget:
wget -c http://puppy:linux@ieinc.ca/Magnus/logo/alpine-2.00.pet
