Woof uploaded, September 3, 2010

This is the version of Woof used to build Wary 0.7 (070).

For introduction and instructions to download Woof, go here:

So, if you have previously downloaded Woof, all you have to do this time is run this in the Woof project directory to update to the latest Woof files:

# bones download

Note that playdayz has sent me some files to synchronise Woof with Lucid 5.1.2, but I have not applied them yet. Also, rerwin will have another upgrade for dialup analog and 3G modem support very soon. After I have applied both of these, I will upload Woof again.

minor woof/bones bug
Hi Barry

I am using the lupu-511 rc as my woof environment. I just got a new .5 TB hard drive and decided to start woof from scratch.

I ran 'bones download' and kept getting 'wget unrecognised option' error with the username/password params. You have SECURITY="--http_user=${download_username} --http_password=${download_password}" in the bones script and this fails in lupu. I guess it's the ubuntu older version of wget.
As a workaround, I used SECURITY="--user=${download_username} --password=${download_password}" and the project is now downloading nicely.

Just thought I'd bring this to your attention, (and perhaps playdayz too)

Re wget
I can put a test into the script. Just to confirm, if you run this:

# wget --help

...do you definitely not get '--http-user' and '--http-password' listed?

Oh, I have just realised something. The script has --http_user and --http_password, but that should be '-' not '_'. I will fix the script.

I never noticed this bug before as you don't need any username/password to download Woof.
If you have run into this problem then you have made an error filling in the fields -- in 'bones setup' the download username/password fields should be empty.

Anyway, I'll fix bones.

Bones 0.2.1
Ok, I have changed "--http_user" and "--http_password" to "--http-user" and "--http-password" in the 'bones' script. The PET is now 0.2.1, uploaded:

It was more of a test really, because I plan to use smokey01's site for some woof related files for my nest project. It requires the user/password

Oh yes, can confirm that the dash is correct, the underscore is wrong.
