Woof uploaded, July 4, 2010

This is the version of Woof used to build Slackpup 0.3.

For introduction and instructions to download Woof, go here:

It is recommended that you follow instructions in the above link to download Woof with full history, however if all you want is the latest tarball, here it is:

Note, if you used the previous version of Woof to build Spup 0.2, you will need to run '0setup' script again to rebuild the Puppy-format package database files. I mentioned in an earlier post that the dependencies had hyphens removed.

Hi Barry

Last night I did a 'bones download' in the latest luci-209 to build a woof iso to track playdayz dev and test some stuff I compiled.

An interesting thing.. the 'bones' script is never in Luci (I have a copy on my drive, so no issue for me) but upon finishing my build I got no download errors, which is great, but no 'bones' either.

Just thought I should let you know. Should we put an entry in PKS_SPECS_TABLE? Or is that handled upstream?

My build should have grabbed the latest SNS, right?

If so then there is an error (I think) at line 48, where WHATWEWANT is defined. I think the double quote needs escaping in the second 'tr' call

This what's there
WHATWEWANT="`grep "$dPATTERN" /etc/networkmodules | tr '|' '_' | tr '"' '|'`" #'geany

Trying to translate " to | ..right?

I could be wrong of course, just I couldn't understand what was going on,

Re bones
Ah, that was an oversight. Yes, the DISTRO_PKGS_SPECS-ubuntu-lucid file should have this entry:


You can download it from here:


Regarding the

tr '"' '|'

...the double-quote does not need to be escaped. Yes, it is translating double-quote to | char.

re SNS
Ahhh, now I understand the #'geany comment, geany's syntax highlighting doesn't understand it... there you go!

It also can't handle the new <video> tag for html5.. the geany devs better catch up!
