Sub_title: WARY, what else.
 

'Eagerly awaited' is the polite message, but it's driving me crazy having a nearly release that is, potentially, the complete answer to so many requirements and having a bunch of machines just waiting for a more viable version. In particular, have tried a number of patches, including the zzz ones, but, although sound is now working very satisfactorily, cannot get settings to stick on FULL installations. Grateful for all those slaving away over hot PC s, but it's like Network Rail on a snowed in nation - the not knowing when rescue is coming is infuriating. Unfortunately, BK has other parallel developments underway, so my office/workroom will have to remain a junk yard repository piled high with almost completely working kit. Nothing new there, then...

Sub_title: Midnight Commander
 

Midnight Commander is a powerful file manager, it creates an entry in
the Filesystem>Filemanagers section of the puppy menu.

It is similar to Norton Commander.

slang-2.2.2-i486.pet is required for Midnight Commander to work.

Edit: I made a new mc-4.7.0.10-i486.pet and it's about half the size of the first one that was posted here.

Edit: Here's version 4.8.0 and slang is included in the pet.

Bill Geeqie seems a little large. I think I have a copy somewhere that is only about 300k.

It also doesn't run as it's missing the exiv2 lib.

This is my favourite graphics viewer.

Hi smokey01,

I compiled it in wary 098 and tested the pet in 098 but it won't run in luci 242.
It works in quirky 1.4 too.

You might find the missing lib or libs at http://packages.ubuntu.com

edit: I just tested the pet in wary 070 with the 2.6.34.1 kernel and it works in that as well so I think it will work in any version of quirky or wary.

edit: I made another pet and it is much smaller, I tested it in Wary 098 and it works.

See above post for new pet.

While elinks is a nice-looking browser, last I checked it doesn't do usenet news. (I.e., news://.... URL). This limits its usefulness (to me).

The lynx2-8-7-i486.pet works just fine in Wary098 (for my needs). If there is a later version, I'd like to hear of it.

2-8-7 is the latest, I made a pet of it in case others want to try it.

PostPosted: Wed 08 Dec 2010, 12:43    Post_subject: xgamma gui in xorgwizard / bc command
Sub_title: still buggy in wary and proposed fix but maybe a hidden bug in bc?
 

I tested the xgamma-gui in lupq511 and found it still buggy.
(it is called from the xorgwizard panel or by "xgamma-gui" from the commandline.

Anyhow, I suggest a solution and have reworked the xgamma-gui script.

I postet it on the Lupu 511 thread
http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=59590&start=135

EDIT: There is a problem. The script which works in Lupu 511 will not work in wary. I tracked it down to the command bc. If you enter the commandline option -l (this is for loading a mathlibrary) then bc will do nothing. So most probably something is wrong here.

EDIT: I tested it in the spup which was posted by mick01 yesterday. There is the same inability to use bc -l. It seems that this is in Woof.

Something to reproduce:

in Lupq 511:
Code:
echo "1+1" | bc
2

echo "1+1" | bc -l
2
echo "e(1)" | bc -l
2.7128.....


in Wary:
Code:
echo "1+1"| bc
2
echo "1+1" | bc -l

echo "e(1)" | bc -l


conclusion: basic maths works but there are problems to use the library

PostPosted: Fri 10 Dec 2010, 11:09    Post_subject: bc bug?  

I have played around with this

somehow the math library is included, because you can call bc in commandline mode: bc -l
then you can call all those sin, exponential, log functions.

but it won't work if you use it from the commandline in a pipe to echo ...

If the bc in wary(size 55K) is replaced by the version in lupq (size 70K) then it works.
