Hello

I thought I should report back for info.

I downloaded the Precise pet from the link in the first post of this thread, getting a file named as version 2.83. I installed it in Precise ran it and found the version reported as 2.91 and all seems to be working without needing to "check for updates" within the Get-Iplayer GUI. I did have the devx.sfs loaded when I insteed the pet.

EDIT. Further info for referance. I find that the devx.sfs needs to be loaded whenever Get-Iplayer is running otherwise functions like search fail with errors about compile failed etc. As long as the devx is present all seems well.

Hope these notes might be usefull

Will

The filehost, copy.com, seems to be no more, confirmed at the site...

Copy was discontinued on May 1, 2016


Although I realise this topic is now very old, is anyone able to re-up the files in OP's post, and update the links here, please?
(Specifically seeking the .pet file for installation in wary 5.5)


Thanks in advance if you can help.

Got a few questions for ya..

Have you ever compiled a program under Linux?

Are you familiar with Perl or CPAN?

If you open a shell and ask "which cpan", does it return >> /usr/bin/cpan?

Granted, you may be asking too much of poor'ol 5.5?

I almost think a smart phone would be the right choice in your shoes..

Semme, sorry for the delay,
answers...

1) No

2) No, though I've heard of Perl, think get_iplayer and certain other programs iuse it in .pet installs?

3)
Code:
# which cpan
#

That's all I get!

4) I've never found Wary to be wanting before, and it, Lupu 5.28, Precise 5.71, (and AntiX MX-14) are the most recent flavours which work comfortably on my ancient hardware. Get-iplayer runs perfectly well on a daily basis on Precise (with devx loaded) and AntiX, and I've no reason to expect it wouldn't also on Wary.

5) I don't really understand what you're asking/saying here, but I don't normally allow my smart phone data permissions, for varioius reasons, so have no plans ever to use it online.
(Anyhow wouldn't the storage limitations be a serious hindrance to trying to use get_iplayer on a phone?)

Thanks for your interest.

I'm not sure if these later builds will run aboard Wary, but you'll need the devx @ minimum.

Get that loaded then try "which cpan" again. You need these Perl libs to make it all work.

P.S.
As regards trying to play with more recent Pupipes, I've tried LX 13.11 Non-PAE which is too sluggish to be of any use (pity because on my old, but newer than this, comp it was definitely my favourite Puppy, and would be my default OS given the choice), and Tahr 6, which will just about boot but not run at all here.
The other one I really enjoy is Lighthouse, yet that's even older than anything, and even I can see it's unnecessarily heavy on shiny widgets and stuff, so have no problem living without that.

Off to my bed now, thanks again.

Sorry our posts crossed there.
Will try and locate a Wary devx and get back to you, thanks.

# which cpan
/usr/bin/cpan

Like I said, I'm not sure this will work, but you can give it a go.

Grab the Tahr package from the opening post and install it.

Then open the terminal and run: get_iplayer

Its GUI should open and the console will probably list a missing element.

As I'm no longer on Wary tonight, you tell me what it says..

PS -- If you have any trouble with copy and paste, install Sakura.

It creates a getiplayer folder in root, as it should, but when I try to run the program it gives me
Code:
# ./get_iplayer

Like I said, Sakura makes a good terminal.

As for the message, run this and see if it will complete without error..
Code:
cpan App::cpanminus
