sickgut

interesting that you are using official tools apt-get
thats good news and a positive forward step

to avoid misunderstandings
howerver ,the distro name you chose is a poor choice due to many
unwanted search results that will come up

maybe your English translates differently the way you intended it to be " a small cat"
the word "kitten" is used in the U.S .or "kitty"

*think about it carefully (American English differs greatly with this word)

I am a native English speaker living in another country Mexico
some times a simple translation from English to Spanish
is offensive when that wasnt the objective

Subject description: Does anybody else have the apt-get stuff now that its no longer posted at thepussycatforest.info
 

It seems that since sick gut got his pussy os going over there at thepussycatforest.info that the apt-get stuff is gone. Does anybody else have a copy of it? Is it posted elsewhere. Anybody Anybody.

Need the apt-get stuff

Or has anybody have a set of directions for getting the missing dependencies to work through puppy packagae manager

or any other method that works for apt-get

Thank You

I too would like this information, I'm not really very interested in trying pussy and would like to use apt-get on here and any other threads on this subject aren't very helpful, in fact most say you can't use apt at all..

Darn. I'm interested too. I even tried that nice fallback of looking the directory up on the Internet Archive's Wayback Machine (http://www.archive.org/web/web.php) but it wasn't caught by their bots.

Sickgut, if you watch this thread at all, would you be able to either put that dir and its contents online again? Or post it to me and I'll put it on my site (credited appropriately of course).

Did anybody else grab it, in case sickgut has left permanently?

Any news re. this?

Sure could use apt-get or some equivalent way to get Debian apps into Puppy Linux Exprimo.

Right now I am trying to load a weather-related program weewx which has several python-related dependencies.

The recommended app to load python add-ons is pip - but pip requires gtk2.0-binmver-2.0.0 which is supposed to be in libgtk2.0-0 but is not.

The usual Debian demon-spawn of dependency hell & poor documentation.

OK, Puppy Package Manager handles the python loads but here's the typical Debian complexity and failure list when one tries to install just one little weather-related app (weewx):

python-configobj
python-support (extra dependency)
python-central (extra dependency)
python-cheetah (plus 6 dependencies)
python-imaging
python-mysql
mysql-client-plus (plus 7 dependencies)
python-seial

Missing:

gtk2.0-binver-2.10.0
libmime-base64-perl
libstorable-perl
perl-dbdabi-94

Nothng unexpected from Debian but a show-stopper for access to weewx at the moment.
