Quirky mirrors

Testing PPM in Quirky 1.3RC, there is feedback of some difficulties.

One problem is that there are not many mirrors of the Quirky PETs hosted at ibiblio.org, and the list of URLs provided in Woof and to the PPM (see /root/.packages/DISTRO_PET_REPOS) has some invalid entries for variable 'PET_REPOS'.

Hmmm, I can only find three Quirky mirrors of ibiblio.org. I have put these two into Woof/PPM:

http://ftp.nluug.nl/ftp/pub/os/Linux/distr/quirky/
ftp://ftp.oss.cc.gatech.edu/pub/linux/distributions/quirky/

Here is another, but it doesn't seem to udpate frequently:

ftp://sunsite.icm.edu.pl/pub/Linux/sunsite.unc.edu/distributions/quirky/

I will also have to fix puppylinux.com/download, which also has invalid URLs.

wary mirrors
Hi Barry

Since Wary is essentially Puppy, do you think it should go into the Puppy repo instead of Quirky? I think I may have suggested this before. I had noticed, around the time I was working on 'quickpet' that quirky is not mirrored by all the Puppy mirrors.

Unless of course a friendly email to the parties responsible for hosting can be persuaded to mirror Quirky.

Cheers

Re Quirky mirrors
Yes, I think it is just a matter of asking to mirror the Quirky files. I am sure there would be many positive responses.

Duplicated entries in woof-installed-packages
Hi Barry,

I found duplicated entries in the woof-installed-packages file, for the 4.3.2 build that ttuuxxx made with latest woof (sept4,2010). I found something like:

Is that normal?

Did you know of this mirror?
http://ftp.cc.uoc.gr/mirrors/linux/
Puppy is there.. I'm sure this is thanks to mavrothal (that greek guy who is doing a wonderful job with XO-1 and XO-1,5 and Puppy)

Wireless
Barry it doesn't recognise my wireless dongle. Netgear WN111v2. All other recent puppies do.
It uses the Atheros AR9170 802.11n driver.

Re 4.3.2
clarf,
I haven't done a test build of "4.3.2" with Woof for a very long time, so there are likely to be some issues. The double listing is of course wrong.

Basically with Woof, the guys using it need to solve such problems themselves and report solutions to me.

Woof is too wide a project for me to do everything. Each type of build, Slackpup, "4.3.2", Dpup, Upup, Wary, Quirky, etc. is virtually a project in itself.
