Frugal is what I'm using.

Success Very Happy but with same problem as you Larry, it won't shutdown.

Ah well at least I now have it working. Laughing

The secret? As you said re-name and re-number.

Something is interacting to stop 525 working, so as a test I did as you suggested and used 555 as a version and it worked.

Next step is to add my package and alterations and try again for my final iso.

Thanks for an excellent build variation on woof.

Sure. You probably want to put EZ-Woof on /mnt/home because it takes 1GB--then the extra from the Build is 512MB tops. So you need a free 2GBs to be safe.

I think if you do one CTRL-Alt-Backspace then it will be OK after that, but it shows how inter-related everything is in a distro--if you want to be fancy, it might help to take the openbox and fbpanel portions out of .xinitrc.

I'll experiment a bit later. Right now I'm trying to finish the iso I want.

It's a vehicle ecu tuning software written for Linux. It's called Megatunix. I made a pet but I wanted to make a live cd version to publish in the megatunix sub-forum on the Megasquirt forum, so newbies can use it. Dave the author gets left out a bit. (That's an understatement)

Normally the tuning software of choice is megatune but that is for windows. There's a bit of bias against megatunix for being open source. The other software has changed to crippleware after a final beta version came out. It's written in java.
Now it's pay time if you want it's desirable features. However megatunix is just as good but windows users can't grasp Linux. By making a live cd iso I can at least educate a few, to both megatunix and puppy.

My own home built sports car uses Megasquirt so I use Megatunix to tune it.
The car details are here if you're interested.

OK, discovered the problem regarding closing jwm. The shutdown and reboot scripts call 'kill $currentwm' which is /etc/windowmanager however that's been changed back in the build to 'openbox' so it errors out.

This is an easy experiment with EZ-Woof, that actually might be an improvement on 5.2.5. At least it works for me--though I didn't have any particular problems--it will probably cause more problems than it cures. Wink

1. Download the tarball alsa-all-1.0.24.tgz and extract it into /packages-lupu.
2. Open and edit DISTRO_PKGS_SPECS-ubuntu-lucid and add the first line below and change the yes to no in the three lines below that.
http://diddywahdiddy.net/Puppy500/alsa-all-1.0.24.tgz

Code:
yes|alsa-all||exe
no|alsa-lib|libasound2,libasound2-dev,libasound2-plugins|exe,dev,doc,nls
no|alsa-base|alsa-base|exe,dev,doc,nls
no|alsa-utils|alsa-utils|exe,dev,doc,nls


Alsa-all contains all of the alsa files from alsa-lib, alsa-utils, alsa-base, libasound, and libasound-plugins, except they are the later 1.0.24 version.

After steps 1 and 2, follow the instructions in the first message to Build.

PostPosted: Thu 28 Apr 2011, 03:09    Post_subject: Updates for Lucid 5.2.5 in EZ-Woof-525?  

Are the current update fixes in EZ-WOOF525?
Or will they have to be installed separately?

Thanks in advance.

EZ-Woof 5.2.5 builds exactly the original release--so the Instant Update will need to be installed separately.

Thanks very much for this. I have shied away from using woof for some reason and this is a good way to get my feet wet with it. I intend to play with this a lot Smile

Not exactly. Some things are broken. For example: the firewall desktop calls rxvt and there is no rxvt. The default text editor is beaver and there is no beaver. At least they are not in the path. It sort of gives a person a tiny, tiny glimpse into the life of the DEVs Smile

This is right puppyluvr, when you extract the download you should get a folder named EZ-Woof-525. Inside is the full packages-lupu directory, a number of DISTRO_PKGS_SPECS files, and at the bottom woof. You should be able to click woof and follow the instructions in the first message. Are you using the command line method to extract tar -xvf EZ-Woof-525.tgz?

Perhaps check the md5sum of the file you have downloaded--the one that should be is in the first message of this thread.

Thanks for that Wink I will check on the details you mention. At least the goal is to build the exact Lucid 5.2.5, so I will stay after it...

Hi Playdayz and thank you for sharing your build tool.
I have tried using EZ-woof a couple of times now adding pemasu lupe-17 kernel - i keep running into the same problem, no audio or retrovol in tray and alsa sound wizard doesn't fix it.

What is the correct procedure to use in the kernel tab - i have the two tick boxes checked to remove exotic drivers, should these be left in?

Copied all the steps in post one - only thing different is i deleted all docs - and changed the default wallpaper / themes in the GUI ( these worked).
