Short Fatdog64 Script that Installs
Here is another version of fextiu written for a later
Puppy Linux, Fatdog64. It has become necessary for me
to look at 64-bit because of reasons beyond my control.
What I can do is adapt my scripts.
Don't get me wrong, I still use my old computers
(with Puppy of course). One is over a decade old and
the other is newer (but not like recent 'new')
-both run Lucid 5.2.8 and still run well.
The 64-bit Frontier Gets Its Turn...
Fextiu_2 is tested as well as shortened while still
packing the punch of the originals. Once again, no
scripts are involved, and no X is needed. It is
a little shorter than a 100 lines of code, but has been
effective for me. This also demonstrates the
adaptability of the code.
A great part of freedom of code is the ability to do
whatever you want to it. If the code doesn't work as
original, just modify it so that it does. Just be
mindful of its limits and how they can be expanded.
Enough chit chat, here it is:
Testing is Slow but Steady
Testing is going well. I am mainly testing the packages I have
downloaded already (which by no means accounts for all). I can't
freely download my way to victory (yes, that slow and cuts off
randomly), so timely effort is done offline.
Testing is not complete yet. For those who are curious, my new
local repo is incomplete (near DVD-size). The test results may not
come in for a while.
Current: I just got finished with espeak and zenity,
and timidity, which work well.
Issues with my old 32-bit packages:
There has been this one package, the 1337-generator works,
but the font is distorted (appears as squares-same result with
petget). Also, the wondershaper one works as well, but it depends
on another package that doesn't work because of the kernel? Others
seemingly work ok, but there are a number I haven't tested just yet.
Being too quick in using via command prompt leads to careless
mistakes, which in turn leads to further errors. Pay attention to
correct usage of -pet and -sfs.
While waiting for my localrepo to finish (so that I can post results)
I have made a small script that uses fextiu_2 to install the
fd 32-bit libs package. It is clickable.
(Note that I did NOT make that package. I am grateful to the person who
did though. I don't know who did exactly, and I don't want to credit
the wrong person. My google skills are not that good now. See above
for why. Without that package, we would not have the chance to use
former 32-bit packages.)
Here is the script:
My local repo is incomplete, but results
have been strong so far. What didn't work
out are still in progress. Now it is
almost half the size as the previous, but
it is not finished yet. The finished
report will be bigger.
You should have named the thread "Short Fatdog64 Script that Installs PACKAGES"
Was confused - thought it would be an OS installer .
Was using Puppie´s which petget with sometimes little issues .
Now I use Puppy OS for compiling - seldom install packages .
These *.tar.* files are opened by which pupzip , which mostly directs to which xarchive .
Still running Macpup Foxy3 ( based on 4.3 ) on Core2Duo machine .
