The next Quirky, compiled completely from source in T2


Regarding compiling from source I was wondering if you have build scripts that could be added or adapted to Woof-CE/petbuilds that Micko started before his recent LoA.

I am going the "other way", looking outside woof/quirky at an established build system (T2). Everything is already in place in T2, even cross-compile support, and support for thousands of packages, very sophisticated scripts. Easy integration of patches and build and install options.

My objective is to build everything in T2, and improve the interaction between my Quirky build system and T2. See my latest post toward this end:
http://bkhome.org/news/?viewDetailed=00132

Note that this approach will be easy to port to woof-CE. Essentially, there are my upgraded '0pre' and new '0pre-add', plus new and improved templates in 'packages-templates'.

For now, it is a work-in-progress.

The packages currently supported in T2:

http://t2-project.org/packages/

...though, that page hasn't been updated for awhile. Latest packages added are recorded here:

http://svn.exactcode.de/ChangeLog-t2

MuPDF is not supported in T2.

It looks very interesting!

You are correct. There is not even a path /lib/firmware/rtlwifi/. I'm assuming that's where it should be; I looked up where TahrPup keeps it for comparison. So, what should I do now, I'm not sure.

BK will need to answer this. I don't know how Quirky handles firmware.

I don't know if woof-CE has changed this, but my Quirky build system, a fork of Woof2, has the firmware here:

quirky/woof-code/kernel-skeleton/lib/modules/all-firmware/rtlwifi/lib/firmware/rtlwifi

Rather than as an external PET. We were in the process of moving firmware out of Woof, but that was incomplete. woof-CE may have progressed in that regard.

Anyway, would you mind posting that firmware file to this forum thread?
I will stick it in, and it will be available in the next Quirky build.

No problem, here's the whole rtlwifi firmware folder from TahrPup 6. The file I needed is rtl8188eufw.bin. Thanks

I'd been having no problems with the installed Quirky unicorn-6.2-8gb.img, until just now when I tried to boot the 8GB Flash Drive, and...
It wouldn't go to the desktop.
Brought up a warning to run xorgwizard, which I do, BUT...
No matter which screen size and color depth I choose, it fails to succeed in proceeding.
Was forced to stop trying.

Anyone know of a fix?

Hi Sylvander,

Boot codes
('qfix=bak', 'qfix=nox' and 'qfix=fsck')

Try the last one first. If that fails try the first.

Barry is doing an incredible and long job compiling all programs.
If anyone has remarks about programs compilation etc...

Most of my effort is happening in my local T2. I am gradually working through adding absolutely every package that we use in a puplet.

See my logs:
http://bkhome.org/news/?viewDetailed=00140
http://bkhome.org/news/?viewDetailed=00134

The end result will be that a pup can be built with using all packages compiled from source, and the only PETs will be the "noarch" ones -- that is, the packages that don't need compiling, such as those using scripts (exs: pburn, pfind) or firmware.

I am working approximately alphabetically, have reached "n"!

I am hoping to have a beta build for users to test, soon. Hopefully by end of 2014.
...maybe a New Year present!

Note that this work should be usable for any woof-built pup, including woof-CE.

quirky qfix=bak fixed it.
After trying others of the form puppy qfix=<something> and qfix=<something>, which didn't work. Rolling Eyes

2. Re-tweaked the appearance=OK.
Updated the OS using PPM=OK.
Re-installed Xfe=OK.
AND...

Small PROBLEM?:
3.
a. Installed Thunderbird=OK.
Copied my Thunderbird profile from the internal HDD /mnt/sda5/Mail/jwgteb8g.default to /mnt/home/Mail/jwgteb8g.default, and pointed the TB at that new location by edit of the /root/.thunderbird/profiles.ini as I've done many times before for various Puppies in various locations including tahr-6.0-CE_PAE on a 4GB Flash Drive.
See link here for details.
Normally all Puppies with pupsaves on the internal HDD partition sda5 point to the profiles in sda5, but this cannot be done when I'm away from home booting a Puppy from a Flash Drive.

b. The Problem?
For some reason, my profile [1 of 3] has only an EMPTY inbox, and the trash folder.
The content of the other 2 identities seems OK.
Don't know if this has anything to do with Quirky, or something else.

4. When I click in a link/URL in an email in TB, why does it fail to take me to a new tab in Seamonkey?
