Dear runtt21,

I tried getting the 520 devx file via quickpet and it does not work. The file is actually not on ibiblio. Is there a mirror, since I am a developer and need gcc etc.? I would also prefer a self-installing pet, since I am running a full installation on HD, but I can always re-do the sfs. Macpup is brilliant and extremely polished! Thanks.

With kind regards,
vovchik

Max Headroom, Like the first post in the thread says don't use the xorg-high.pet in the quickpet. Use the one that is in the macpup520 folder on my macpup page. It's not the ibar you want to auto hide , it's the whole shelf. Right click somewhere on the bottom shelf.Select shelf bottom / settings.

vovchik Macpup uses the lupu_devx_520.sfs Just download and save it .Then mount it ,copy everything over to your system and you should be good to go.

Dear runtt21,

Thanks. I just did that a few hours ago and beforehand compared bytes and filesizes before "committing". It worked like a charm, and I just compiled qt4.7.2, which took forever, but it works!

Thanks.

With kind regards,
vovchik

Agust original 1890 theme is very big ,11 MB+, So I have split the mp version into a plain theme and a animated wallpaper. The MP1890 theme is in the themes-05.pet on my macpup page in the macpup520 folder. The Wallpaper is in the wallpaper-01.pet . The clock is 24 hr mode only.





Enjoy!!! Very Happy

hello vovchik.

Actually you uncovered a bug, that I should have, but didn't foresee. What happens is that quickpet looks for the DISTRO_FILE_PREFIX which in macpup's case is "macpup" as distinct from "lupu". I will have to trick macpup into thinking it's lupu for that case, so that the devx downloads successfully. Had it downloaded successfully, in the case of a full install the devx is converted to a pet which you can save for later, and then you are prompted to install it as a pet such that it registers with petget in case you wish to uninstall at a later date.

Puppy Studio (now defunct Rolling Eyes ) would suffer the same bug.

I'll update and make a patch.

Cheers.

I see there are issues with xorg_high and fglrx drivers. I can hard code that to your URI for those cases, is nvidia ok?

EDIT

Ok, well I tested nvidia and that seems fine.
I added a hack to quickpet to download the Xorg_High and ATI drivers directly from http://macpup.org/runtt21/ and while I can't test the drivers the downloads startup fine.

I also added a hack to get the devx from ibiblio and that works just fine.

Thank you 01micko . Very Happy We haven't had any issues reported with the nvidia drivers. The issue with the Xorg-high and ATI drivers is that the .pet had parts the macpup already had installed and when these got over written when the .pet was installed X locked up. The Macpup versions have those Duplicates removed that is the only difference. Thank you very much for you Help !!!!

I am going to release supports .pet's for cgoban3 and glgo. Glgo has a copyright that prohibits redistrubutions so I am just going to make a .pet with gnugo and the deps. that glgo needs to run as well as a list of links about go and online go. I hope to have this done by the weekend.
