dotpup downloader


Since upgrading Puppy to 2.12 I can't seem to get the dotpup downloader to work whereas the package manager runs without problems.
Here's the error message I've been getting;
File integrity ERROR: xscrabble.pup.pup
Suggestion: Download the Pup file again.
Not enough space to unzip?

Puppy sits alone on a 50g partition so I'm sort of at a loss as to why I'm getting this.
Otherwise everything's super cool. It rocks..!
Thanks,
Michel

Normally those file integrity errors are caused by bad downloads, which could easily be due to a slow or overloaded (or even absent) server. It depends on the specific host for that dotpup, so just retry, or look elsewhere for the file. There is a good collection at http://dotpups.de/

Took me about 5 tries to get a workable download for eboard, as I recall.

Also, new packaging system is in the course of development, the first steps are already in 2.13 according to Barry's developer blog.

Cheers,
Mark

Dotpup downloader

Well you're right. The links are broken according to Mu
so it was suggested that I download and use is PSI
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=10960
since the dotpup downloader is no longer being developped.PSI is very slick, efficient and easy to use.I've often been to http://dotpups.de/. I just hope that in the future Barry's Puppy will have everything under one roof....No pun intended (lol).
Thanks...
Michel
p.s.My dream is to see Puppy ported to a Mac

Well, someone on the murga forum is proposing to do a rebuild of Puppy for the PPC, and someone else wants to port it to the PS3 and its Cell processor, so you're not alone. Head over there and see what needs doing
