Also, is 0.5 working for everyone?

I'm not entirely sure I fixed it right, although as I said earlier, it seems to always work in 4.2 Rolling Eyes


My problem with Puppy AdStopper in Puppy 5.1 seems to have fixed Very Happy

I updated all the list and I counted the number of blocked lines and it is around 29452

I guess, this is what you will get if you update all the lists

Thanks!

Yep, thats very close indeed to what I got last time I updated...

Hope not to be hacking this forum thread, but I'm interested in technosaurus' version because it can be run even from the cli. The latest version still didn't work, it creates a /tmp/adlist{1,2,3,4} but it's empty and so its links too.

Code:
root@debian:/tmp# ls -l
total 1460
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 618540 Ago 18 14:45 adlist1
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root      0 Set  3 18:35 adlist{1,2,3,4}
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 733138 Ago 31 06:56 adlist2
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root  54885 Fev 12  2008 adlist3
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root  72249 Ago 19 22:01 adlist4

that is odd - could it be that your /bin/sh is pointing to dash?
I thought it was standard behavior to expand adlist{1,2,3,4} to adlist1 adlist2....

Yes, I'm in Debian.
I have bash installed too and it's the default interactive shell as set in /etc/adduser.conf (I saw that in Debian's wiki and confirmed here).
Also, just for information, /bin/sh.distrib links to bash:
Code:
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root      4 Ago 13 21:48 sh -> dash
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root      4 Jul 28 23:03 sh.distrib -> bash

I'm just saying, as dash is the default shell in Debian but maybe I could call the app in a different way (like /bin/bash script) and then it would work.

-edit: I tried both scripts (the first one and the second one that has the extra option to disable adblock) with /bin/bash. They both created empty files in /etc/hosts (the first directly and the second by linking to an empty /etc/hosts.adblock). The difference to when using dash is that the script this time deleted the downloaded files in /tmp while with dash they were kept there.

I left the script like this:
Code:
#!/bin/bash
DIALOG=dialog || DIALOG=dialog
[ ! -f /etc/hosts.usr ] && touch /etc/hosts && cp -f /etc/hosts /etc/hosts.usr #echo 127.0.0.1 localhost puppypc >/etc/hosts #r1 maybe user added others
for x in `$DIALOG --stdout --checklist "Choose your ad blocking service(s)" 0 0 5 1 "mvps.org" ON 2 "systcl.org" ON 3 "technobeta.com" ON 4 "yoyo.org" ON 5 "turn off adblocking" off |tr "/" " " |tr '\"' ' '`; do
   case $x in
   1)wget -c -4 -t 0 -O /tmp/adlist1 'http://www.mvps.org/winhelp2002/hosts.txt';;
   2)wget -c -4 -t 0 -O /tmp/adlist2 'http://sysctl.org/cameleon/hosts';;
   3)wget -c -4 -t 0 -O /tmp/adlist3 'http://www.technobeta.com/download/urlfilter.ini';;
   4)wget -c -4 -t 0 -O /tmp/adlist4 'http://pgl.yoyo.org/as/serverlist.php?hostformat=hosts&showintro=0&mimetype=plaintext';;
   5)ln -sf /etc/hosts.usr /etc/hosts && exit;;
   *)echo $x;;
   esac
done
touch /tmp/adlist{1,2,3,4}
cat /etc/hosts.usr /tmp/adlist{1,2,3,4} |sed 's/^[ \t]*//' |sed 's/\t/ /g' |sed 's/  / /g' |grep ^[1-9] |dos2unix -u |sort |uniq > /etc/hosts.adblock
ln -sf /etc/hosts.adblock /etc/hosts

and it doesn't create anymore /tmp/adlist{1,2,3,4}. The four files are in /tmp
Code:
root@debian:/tmp# ls -l
total 1460
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 618540 Set  4 12:34 adlist1
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 733138 Set  4 12:34 adlist2
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root  54885 Set  4 12:34 adlist3
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root  72249 Set  4 12:34 adlist4

but /etc/hosts.adblock and /etc/hosts are blank.

Thanks for the list, I've been using it for a while to see whether or not to include it in a newer version of pup-advert-blocker...

But if anyone cares, the list above seems to break too many things, and causes a few websites to hang.. Most notably (for me) 4od and other video sites..

And considering it's not a list of 20,000 or so, that's quite a lot of things in there that I don't want blocked.

You could use them both.

Pup-Advert-Blocker edits the '/etc/hosts' file so that the listed ad servers cannot even connect properly..
They're redirected away, so it makes browsing a bit faster.

AdBlock-Plus checks the stuff after its downloaded - it doesn't save any bandwidth.
But AdBlock-Plus allows you to click on any advert you see and block it, so that's nice.

This tool does not conflict with AdBlock-Plus in any way (as far as I know)

@ scottman

Is it possible to add a restore to default button?

Or is it safe to open the host file and delete everything in it?

Subject description: replace
 

Hi.
I do it that way.
Before to run Advert-blocker copy somewhere default host file.
It's in etc/ and then if you want to have it back just replace the old one with the new one.
The other way is to open your host file and delete everything that was added by AB.

It is safe to delete everything between the Advert-Blocker 'markers'.. NOT highlighting any of the lists and clicking 'Start', will do this for you - leaving you with whatever you had before running the tool.

There is no real need to backup before you run the tool - this tool will only add stuff to the end of your hosts file, and always between easy to see 'markers' so you know what was added. And as mentioned above, will delete what it has added, if you select none of the checkboxes.

Hey Everyone,

I have a few suggestions for this application -

1) Change the dns redirection from 127.0.0.1 to 0.0.0.0 in case someone is running some server programs/services and/or running puppy as a server.

2) Add these amazing lists to the ones already there-

HP Hosts: http://support.it-mate.co.uk/downloads/HOSTS.txt

someonewhocares.org: http://someonewhocares.org/hosts/

Hosts File Project: http://hostsfile.mine.nu/Hosts

hostsfile.org: http://www.hostsfile.org/Downloads/BadHosts.unx.zip

Peter Lowe's Adblock List: http://pgl.yoyo.org/as/serverlist.php?hostformat=hosts&showintro=1&mimetype=plaintext




Other than this, THANKS A LOT!!! I've been looking for a program similar to Hostsman for windows and this is the closest thing out there!!! Thank you!!!
