HI, I have had some severe problems when trying to install freenet on puppy linux 528.

I have major problems with the "running as root" problem, and have given in trying to fix it,

does anyone have and up to date pet file, or step by step instructions of how to install this? this is the only app I have had problems with and I'd really like it to work Smile thanks

Hello, cleg 223.

Which Freenet are you talking about, please ?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Freenet

Or

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/National_Capital_Freenet
(Using this one as an example, 'cause there are similar sites
in other cities around the world. Cleveland, etc.)

Best regards.

I only wild guess but maybe he refer to the TOR version of Freenet?
There is a TOR program that one download. I have not tried it because
I trust that every TOR user get flagged by the NSA or whatever where one live. Smile

Read about it in Guardian News Mag
http://www.guardian.co.uk/technology/2009/nov/26/dark-side-internet-freenet

I try to stay out of all such that are "Dark side"

Hello nooby.

I asked because in the neighbouring city there is a site called Freenet which you can become a member of for a very small fee. And this "Freenet" is affiliated to other "Freenet" sites in various cities around the world. They provide e-mail addresses and interface, various message boards, etc. It is all on the up and up, very transparent and legal. They have been around for many years.

Yes and does not Wiki also have other such freenet linked to.
So I am not sure either. I remember I saw a youtube clip from Austria?
Or from Hungary where they put up boxes on mobile towers for to create
a freenet so the word seems ambiguous indeed. Cheating?
I mean had they the right to put up these boxes? I doubt that.

But related to puppy it seems to be the one with an app for TOR
what else could it be? But I know nothing about it just wanted to
trigger the OP to clarify by friendly nudging him to respond Smile

So good luck I am now out of this thread due to lack of knowledge

PostPosted: Sat 21 Apr 2012, 08:34    Post subject: RE:  

The Freenet project i am talking about is definitely this one...
https://freenetproject.org/

I have seen a page related to this,

http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?search_id=2114572628&t=41549

however there are still problems with the installation, when i change the user to "spot" the terminal claims it cannot access the file at all, when i run as normal in the terminal, the installation fails.

I have tried everything, but my limited knowledge of Linux is causing some problems for me...

"when i change the user to "spot" "

Wow! You try something that not even Barry Kauler and the other Devs
of Puppy seems to be fully knowledgeable about either.

So try first without using spot or fido and only try them when you know
very much about how Puppy works.

Correct me if I am wrong but I trust that is the best advice one can give
to somebody at your level. I will try to find the thread about Fixing Fido

Fido is most likely even better than spot so if they even fail with fixing Fido
then Spot is hard to solve.

But I remember vaguely that one guy shared he had made progress with fido or spot

but then I lost where he wrote that. Maybe he get active here if we beg him???

hi cleg223

it seems to be working here using spot to install it....... do you just want instructions or do you want a .pet of it?

edit: i'll post a .pet tomorrow

Subject description: RE
 

To be honest, i'd like both the .pet and the instructions, that way I can install and use it, but also, gain knowledge of how it works Smile
Thanks in advance....


As for Fido and spot, i dint really see the difference as for as practicalities and usefulness goes, if they both operate as restricted users, whats the difference between them? Fido gets its own directories?

Dispite the su spot command i still cannot get the terminal to run the program under the spot user. it just claims it cannot access the file? This is one of the reasons, i would really appreciate the instructions also.

still working on it Smile

hi cleg223

i'm presuming you already have java installed

first off grab the offline installer from here https://freenet.googlecode.com/files/new_installer_offline_1407.jar

then move it to the spot folder /root/spot/

then open a terminal an type (press return after each line)
Code:
su spot
cd /root/spot
java -jar new_installer_offline_1407.jar


freenet will then installed to the /root/spot folder

then to start it open a terminal again an..
Code:
su spot
cd /root/spot/Freenet
./run.sh start

this will start the deamon, then click on /root/spot/Desktop/start browsing freenet to open the browser (you may need to paste http://127.0.0.1:8888/ into the address bar)

when you've finished you'll need to stop the deamon by
Code:
cd /root/spot/Freenet
./run.sh stop


i'll hopefully post a pet later that will simplify the process

That has got to be the most perfect answer I could have imagined, it worked an absolute treat Smile Thank you!!!

My problem was, I was downloading to a normal home directory, and by doing that i was making the ownership of the file associate with the root user/ directory and then trying to run it with spot.

I was not aware that puppy had its own directories for the spot user.

Your answer cleared that up pretty quickly!!!
