I had already compiled 'shared-mime-info' in T2, however I have fixed the template in woofQ.

In all the years that I have been developing the puppies, I have never got the management of the shared-mime-info database quite right. Manually editing the 'glob' file is wrong.

There is only one file to maintain, and that is /usr/share/mime/packages/puppy.xml, and the mime database is updated by running 'update-mime-database'.

This time I have done it logically, remains to be tested though.

Later on, when testing Quirky April, if you want to add a new puplet-specific mime type, install the 'devx' PET, then edit /usr/share/mime/packages/puppy.xml, then run:

# update-mime-database /usr/share/mime
<

If it works, send me the updated 'puppy.xml', so I can put it into woofQ.

Actually, wvstreams and wvdial were already in T2, but the former failed to compile. I got patches from Debian.

However, we have our own in-house source, internationalised by Forum member rodin.s.
