Quirky: new packages

March 27, 2011 — BarryK
I have compiled these packages in Quirky:

glib12 1.2.10
gtk+12 1.2.10
imlib 1.9.15
gdk-pixbuf0 0.22.0
rox_filer_gtk1 1.2.2-patches_12_root
seamonkey_nomail 2.0.13

Rox-Filer has the latest patches from argolance plus running-as-root patch. The Flash Player has technosaurus's patch.

I have compiled SeaMonkey without the mail&news module to make it smaller.

These PETs will be usable in the upcoming Quirky 1.5 and also in Wary.

They are uploaded here:


Not gtk 1.2

Just a note so that other developer guys know... I do not plan to create a baby Linux based on GTK 1.2 apps -- I reckon that goingnuts and technosaurus are doing a great job in that direction and I won't compete. However, I thought that I would make the GTK 1.2 PETs available for Quirky/Wary in case anyone wants to run any of the old GTK 1.2 apps. I am staying with GTK 2.x for the next Quirky, and just going through very carefully to eliminate fat, also looking at some ideas in that direction.

"Hi Barry I'm not running quirky right now, I did come across a A GTK Based Strategy Game that's pretty good, the pet size for 2.14X is 28kb I altered the sources, because the .desktop was going into a games folder, so now it goes to the applications folder like it should. Then I compressed and changed a few of the images to better looking ones a saving of 180kb. here's the sources and If you wanted to try the compiled 2.14X version, It should work on Wary/quirky anyways since 2.14x has the same glibC, gcc and a few other libs same as Wary, I've been bridging the gap on 2.14X/Wary my next couple of release will go a bit further, like jpg/sqlite/libpoppler. Its truly amazing that 2.14X is still booting after so much of it being updated. <-- the game pet for 2.14X
