re: pet2txz: I'm attaching the updated pet2txz. This is the new pet2txz that will be in the next release, so if you're keen perhaps you can try it and let me know whether it works for you.
Having been scorched yesterday with a couple of hours spent repairing my system, I want to understand what is the potential for pet2txz to break loose again. I compared this new script with the old one and it's a huge re-write (ok). I looked for a lines that run "find -type l -exec rm {} \;" but couldn't find any. Finally I found one inside /sbin/makepkg, the (patched) slackware package maker. So, that's the guy with the potential of breaking havoc in a system.

James, do you consider the way pet2txz uses makepkg totally safe?

PostPosted: Sun 07 Sep 2014, 17:59    Post subject: Qemu not working?  

Is Qemu working in 700a1? I tried package versions qemu-arm-x86_64 2.0.0 and qemu-arm-x86_64 2.1.0 from the 700 repo, with and without 32bit-slacko-3.sfs (should be without, right) and each time got an error message. Used Qemu_Control_Center-0.6-x86_64-PET.txz to start Qemu.
Code:

It should, but of course bugs can happen ... Embarassed

You don't need 32bit libs to run qemu. For the time being, please install libnss and libnspr from the repo. They shouldn't be needed - qemu should use libnss/libnspr already in seamonkey/firefox - but because of a bug in /etc/profile, you do need to install them for now. qemu 2.1.0 requires libvte, this should be pulled out automatically when you install from repo.

I have no idea why your qemu fails on libncurses, it could be part of your symlink screw up before. Try running "ldconfig" to restore most of the library symlinks. Btw what's inside that qemu-control-panel pet? Does it only contain scripts, or does it also have qemu binaries (which may override the qemu from 700)?

Unable to run qemu at first shot , after the terminal gave me the message that I should load libnss3.so , loading libnss made Gslapt tick not only libnss package but libnspr as well . If one untick libnspr and install only libnss , then the next message in terminal tells to load also libncurses ...

Gslapt doesn't tick libvte when qemu 2.1.0 is ticked.
First I tested qemu 2.0.0 with libnss and libnspr and it failed (missing libncurses) - as Gobbi report above.
Then I tested qemu 2.0.1 with libnss, libnspr and libvte and it worked!

Gobbi had the same problem, but I guess we can leave 2.0.0 behind and use the working 2.1.0.

Just script and desktop files. You replied to Qemu control panel thread here http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=797135&search_id=1815038787#797135. I installed the Qemu control panel from the FD 700 repo. File list from Gslapt:
/usr/
/usr/share/
/usr/share/applications/
/usr/share/applications/qemu.desktop
/usr/share/pixmaps/
/usr/share/pixmaps/qemu.png
/usr/bin/
/usr/bin/qemu_gui
/Qemu_Control_Center-0.6.pet.specs

Summary: qemu 2.1.0 txz from the repo works with the addition of three libraries. Qemu control center 0.6 from the repo works as well.
Thanks for your help!

I'd like to add some contrib packages to the 700 repo. How can I get upload access?

I like the new 700 but i also have Ripple fest and can confirm Vblank for nouveau doesn't work just like 631.

No Nvidia proprietary drivers in the above package folder ?

Hi,
How can I increase sensitivity of a mouse.
Since having 2 displays I need to cover more screen in the same space available to move mouse.

Thanks.

Thanks. I meant upload access. But perhaps I should have asked, more clearly, what is the process to add my contributed files to the official 700 repo.

I think he is using the Puppy approached presented by @MikeB and maintained here. It is designed to simplify virtual PC setup and is s set of scripts. Might be a simple addition to FATDOG Menu system if QEMU is made a part of the GA. @StemSee has deployed such in his distro as an example reference.

So far, it my findings that the QEMU only impacts the ISO and does NOT impact any system performance or operation in its presence in Menu for anyone who might be interested.

Hope this helps

Qemu control panel isn't in the repo. You must have converted it from a pet. Make sure that the pet doesn't have qemu binary in it (looks like you've done the right thing, though).

No, not yet. We only package proprietary drivers when it's final or near final release. This is still alpha release, kernels will still change often. You can try to install it yourself, though.

Control Panel --> Desktop --> pupx (or just run pupx on terminal).

I'll send you a PM.

Qemu is part of (next-release) devx.

Hi @jamesbond,
Fatdog64 control panel > Desktop > pupx doesn't work.
In terminal gives error as
Code:
#pupx
/usr/bin/pupx: line 28: /usr/share/pupx/locale/english.po: No such file or directory
#
There is no directory named pupx in /usr/share.

- Neeraj.

Thanks @JamesBond.

Including it in Devx or the base, either way, its a great contribution by you and the FATDOG team.

If you have already reviewed @MikeB's script for Puppy, it or some other QEMU GUI might be helpful and visually useful to accelerate guidance and understanding.

Again, THANKS!!! Cheers for this and all that's done for our benefit in FATDOG usage to taking advantage of 64bit PCs and Laptops. Very Happy

Hello everyone,

Anyone wants to make their own sfs of Opera devloper v25 browser .
download .deb file fromHere.
Then follow instructions from Here.
Thanks to @Wognath now I have made my first working sfs file.

Edit: Also had to install libnss which also installed libnspr as a dependancy.

Thanks.
-Neeraj.
