T2: starting letter o

I have been logging my effort to compile every single source package that most pups need, in T2.
Logs so far:

...chaining the links. Inside that link, you will find a link to previous effort. Or, just go to "Index" above, and look down.

Well, nothing in "o", so onto "p"...

Forum member rcrsn51 has 'peasyport', a nice network scanner:

It has a binary inside it, 'pnscan', so I have taken that out and compiled it in T2. pnscan home:

I got some patches from Debian.

Following earlier convention, I have created PET package 'peasyport-noarch' in the noarch repo.
The 'pet.specs' file specifies pnscan as a dependency.

So, added to T2:


Slow but steady progress adding to T2

I was logging progress here:

However, decided to start a new thread.

Some more:


gview home page:

gwhere home page:

Gwhere needed a lot of TLC to compile. Feasible as it is written in C -- if it had been written in C++ it would have been a hopeless case.

...that's because the C++ developers shift the goal posts, unlike C that basically remains the same over the years.

I wonder if anyone uses these apps? I have put gview and gwhere into all my pups, for years and years.
Gwhere is a nice concept, though I never used it myself. It kind of filled a niche, so I always put it in.

The end of Dr Dobb's Journal

Oh wow, this is the end of an era:

Back in the early 90's I used to purchase Dr Dobb's from my newsagent. I even contributed a couple of articles:

Object oriented flow design:

TERSE operating system:

Do you old-timers remember Byte magazine? In its heyday it was about half an inch thick. Another one that I used to buy sometimes.
Byte magazine bit the dust many years ago.

Gpptp v2.0 in T2

No comments
I announced recently the work that Puppy Forum member jafadmin has done, developing Gpptp, which is PPTP VPN client:

The PET package has two binary executables in it. I have taken the sources out to a separate package, named 'gpptp-2.0' and the compiled binary pkg will have the same name.
The PET, without the binaries, is now named 'gpptp-noarch-2.0'.

The latter will be uploaded to the Quirky noarch PET repo soon. It will be here:

The former will be uploaded to the April sources repo soon. That is here, not complete yet:

The binary packages created by T2 will be uploaded here, but there is nothing there yet:

Continuing to import into T2

I am working intensely on this. Days are rolling past, I will keep going until they are all in.

I am logging progress in this blog thread:
