You will still need a script to tell which one to link to /usr/include/linux based on uname -r.

But the files are IN /usr/include/linux, built that way with make headers install. The only way yours would work is if I put the headers in a holding area then linked them, a bit ugly (oh, I forgot, we are FULL of ugly Laughing ).

In you build script put something like
Code:
make INSTALL_HDR_PATH==$OUTPUT/usr/$KERNELVER headers_install

Then you link /usr/$KERNELVER/include/linux to /usr/include/linux
Is almost looking good Laughing

What do people think about putting the kernel headers in the main sfs? They will add about 800k to the iso but it will mean 1 devx will be common to both flavours. That will save confusion.
Go for it, for your targeted hardware size isn't a factor.

That is a good idea to put the headers into the main .sfs !

Otherwise it would be one devx.sfs containing both headers in /usr/include/linux-`uname -r` and the USER would need to manually symlink as needed .
Few lines in /etc/init.d/pup_kernel_headers could do such , too , but that would also add some bytes .

Hi Mick,

Installed nvidia_latest-325.45-3.4.52-4g.pet and nvidia_latest-325.45-3.10.5-PAE.pet on their respective distributions. Both worked flawlessly. Very Happy

Cheers,
Jim

Running 5.5.81 on it's fourth day - no issues !!!
Seems to be just another killer-OS from the Amadio-dude.

LibreOffice-4.1
OpenOffice-4.0
Google_Earth-7.1

<-- sfs files

Look good to me, include mime for Puppy in the office suites. Should open most MS stuff by clicking, an exception is .pptx and .ppts

http://distro.ibiblio.org/puppylinux/pet_packages-slacko14/ (US)

Plus up at mirrors
http://mirror.internode.on.net/pub/puppylinux/pet_packages-slacko14/ (AU)
http://ftp.nluug.nl/ftp/pub/os/Linux/distr/puppylinux/ (NL)

These are already in the updated sfs manager (Jades Wink )
OpenOffice seems pretty nice since Apache took it over. These sfs are all xz compressed and should run in any recent 32 bit puppy or derivative.

Hi Mick

Spaces once more (it turned out to be an old bug, since 5.4), when I was trying to install a .txz package from a location with space in its path.
Easy fix as well, /usr/local/bin/pupzip, line 31:
Code:
 [ $? -eq 100 ] && exec petget "$PARAMIN"   # SFR: double quotes

As you can see all I can find are some ancient, minor glitches. Laughing
5.6 βeta is really great, solid piece of work!

However, I thought I would use screeny to take a screenshot of glxgears with the nouveau driver (some warnings do show up) and the screenshot looks like this below:-

When the graphics card is working xwd (the backend for screeny) doesn't do a great job, maybe we'll upgrade to SFR's capture app based on ffmpeg.


@Oscar - you may want to try if TAS would behave better, but during tests with 16bit color depth I got similar output when taking a screenshot of a window that was partially off screen. With 24bit depth all was fine though.
Anyway, worth a try...

@Mick - for me, personally, the advantage of ffmpeg over xwd is that under Compiz xwd won't take a screenshot of a window + its decorations (clicking on titlebar produces 0B sized file), but ffmpeg has no problems with this.

@Zigbert - I just found your little Pmirror app to be very nice, but I have a questions about setting 'exception file'.
But first: here in Slacko it's version 0.6.1, so I upgraded to 0.6.2, but this one doesn't display some of messages and shows the following error:
Code:
# pmirror
/usr/local/pmirror/pmirror: line 41: eval_gettext: command not found

Diff shows lack of:
Code:
. gettext.sh

at the beginning of the code, so I've added it and messages are back.

Anyway, in both versions I can only select a directory as 'exception file'.
Is it supposed to be this way?
In my understanding I should be able to select a file that contains a list of files (that are in target dir) to be ignored.
Or did I miss something? Wink

Thanks &
Greetings!

Unable to turn it off. Changed numlockx in /root/startup but still does not work

majorfoo

does it work from a terminal?
Code:
# numlockx off


Works ok here, tested on a usb install, accidentally left it on when I shifted it to my eee, naturally was getting a garbled keyboard! So I flipped it to off in ~/Startup/numlockx and it worked fine.

Micko, just had a look at your latest release, very nice. I couldn't break it.

Some observations:
The exit button in PPM is bigger than the other icons
A later version of Homebank is available 4.5, pls compile with ofx support if you include.
Viewnior 1.3 is available, you have 1.1
Transmission 2.60 is installed. I use 2.73 but I just noticed 2.82 is available.

Good job.

viewnior.. no, haven't got time.
homebank .. maybe, under consideration.
transmission .. no, 2.60 is the last in the gtk2 supported series, either need to add gtk3 or qt.

EDIT: Nope, sorry, passing on homebank too, got 2 deps, wouldn't compile without more deps, haven't the time for dependency hell ATM!
