Universal Installer bugfix

October 11, 2011 — BarryK
Wary testers reported that the Puppy Universal Installer is broken when doing a full hard drive installation. I found that frugal also was broken.

The script is /usr/sbin/puppyinstaller, and I think it was 01micko who recently modified it to work with gtkdialog3 (it previously required gtkdialog2). I tested it at the time and it seemed ok, but now gtkdialog3 is choking on the the XML being fed to it by stdin -- however, gtkdialog4 works.

So, I have bumped the script to use gtkdialog4, plus fixed some other minor things.

Well, the latest Wary is looking good. I have done some more work on the theme. It seems good enough to be an RC...

"I did make mention that the reason I made my little gtkdialog2 rid campaign was that that the stdin bugfix had been applied. Sorry for confusion. The bug doesn't affect slacko as I have no gtkdialog3.
