I wonder about Akita. I guess you have to point out that it is a puppy version. Based on puppy 420 maybe should be pointed out up front Smile

Apart from that it feels good to be able to put together something that actually works what is different about Akita.

What feature do you like best or strive for to accomplish?

That it is lean and mean? 85 mb is small indeed. VLC works and pics through viewnior works too so it looks good so far.

Exactly that... I am not too bothered about the name, but it will be called "Akita Linux" when I release it...

But you make a good point!
I actually just released the "Akita Linux - Alpha 1" ISO (not, not "puplite alpha 19", or whatever)

..so I guess I should rename the thread!


I am writing from within Akita now. Downloaded FF 3.6 but it did not have Flash as the others usually have built in.

No big deal most people seems to know how to act in such circumstances.

Managed to find a driver for my Atheros LAN card.

Have not tested much else.

You're right, that info was missing.. updated main post. This info will be made clear when released as well.

I simply want it to be good Smile And it can be made much smaller, many apps included by default.

Because other Puppies dont have a great 'Flash installer' in the 'Internet' menu, above the also excellent 'Browser Installer' Wink

Thats good... Do you ever have problems with it? (Particularly in regard to older puppies)...

you can get the list of include commands with
Code:
for x in `./busybox |grep ,|grep -v Â` ;do echo ${x%,}; done
... helpful for your new config
if it needs a recompile, perhaps some other applets can be removed or replace full versions
btw, barry posted a uclibc toolkit package a short while back, the included dietlibc has had issues compiling some applets (the daemon package I built used dietlibc though)
btw what part needs printf that cannot use echo?

I think it is automatically downloaded via a snippet in "delayedrun" though

I'm wary of compiling busybox myself, might bork it - although it would be a nice opportunity to try playing around with the init script, but that's best left to someone who knows what they are doing..

Thanks for the info once again.. I'm always playing catch up!
I thought you just typed 'busybox' into the terminal and read the list of applets!

And I thought making the right-aligned, coloured 'done' messages (as used in rc.sysinit) required either echo -e or printf ... But I'm thinking of doing away with them altogether.. Replacing with a normal echo ".. done\n" or whatever looks nice..

But now I'm wondering, is that really dumb? I think yes, I might revert to /#!bin/sh and the original echo -e stuff...

While you're here, how do I best test the speed of the init script? (Or rc.sysinit to be more precise, I guess...)

Really? I might have to get in on that! Hacked to run your flash-installer, of course!

Guys pardon my lack of know how. You guys are right on! That is how them do it. The delayed thing and either Flash pop ups and one get asked or the pop up gets hidden under the main ff screen and one realize that too late. Smile

Anyway such dealyed run I guess would be wanted and appreciated by the puppy crowd them being used to it. Smile

Good you told about it.

Yes a few puppy variety actually do have problem finding the ahteros.

Even if them find it them have already shut down the hardware so it only get reachable by shutting down and pulling the power plug and letting the RAM memory get down to under .7 Volt Smile bbut nowadays it is very few that fail. one out of 20 or so

echo can do that, it just has trouble with some formatting (can usually be worked around though)

TIMESTAMP1=`date +%s.%N`
....
awk "BEGIN{print $TIMESTAMP99 - $TIMESTAMP1}"

Edit ... may need ${TIMESTAMP99} ... otherwise the shell has a tendency to use "$TIMESTAMP9"9

That is a hack from Barry's code in /usr/sbin/delayedrun. Note that flashplayer now comes with it's config gui and other stuff.

Attached is a slightly modified version of delayed run from woof about 2 weeks ago. It is updated a bit in the latest woof (which I haven't grabbed yet, another is imminent ) , anyway, the flashplayer code is likely the same.

Excellent... Thanks once again.. You are so productive - so many translations already! Very impressive, I like looking at my Russian desktop, just to marvel at how complete it is, compared to 2 weeks ago!!

I had a thought about gettext, have you tested any poedit package in Akita? If so, which one would you recommend?

I ask because some of the other translators are now finished (of sorts) improving the files I already made, and have (mostly) only the gettext .mo files remaining..

So, I would like to recommend a working poedit for testers/helpers.

PostPosted: Mon 15 Aug 2011, 13:36    Post subject: poedit for Akita  

I use this poedit in Wary-511. I have tested it now on Akita and it works.
http://www.silverdollarsolutions.com/PuppyLinux/Dingo/poedit_1.4.2-3_forPuppy412-i686.pet
I found it in this topic: http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=59142
But devx.sfs is needed for xgettext and msgfmt. I use devx.sfs in Wary.
Shinobar has made the poedit package with xgettext and msgfmt in it so devx.sfs is not needed but it didn't work for me in Wary for some reason. I'll try it in Akida now.
And I quess it's here: http://182.164.209.64/puppy/lupq/opt/poedit-1.4.2-3-i686.pet
Yes, it works. xgettext, msgfmt and msgunfmt also work so devx.sfs is not needed.

Excellent, thanks I am loading it now, and learning how to use it.

I will update the 1st/main post soon, so users easily can download it.
I will also list which translations remain, and if they use gettext or not.
(I think that will be useful)
