103 new packages for T2

January 02, 2015 — BarryK
My mammoth effort over the last few weeks has been to compile every package used in Puppy and derivatives, such that a pup can be built without any PETs except for 'noarch' PETs.
That is, built entirely from binary packages compiled in T2.

Apart from a lot of fixing in my local T2, getting already-there packages to compile, and in the correct order, I added a heap of new ones to T2 -- I didn't realise just how many until today -- 103 new packages!

I have now submitted the new packages to Rene, for consideration to include in the official T2. Here is my submission:

However, for anyone who would like to have a go at compiling all of these packages in T2, and maybe experimenting with some enhanced package selections, you need my local T2.
I have done a lot of fixing, that is not in the official T2, and I have tested complete builds for i686 and amd64 (x86_64) targets.

What I have not yet done is an ARM build...
...if that interests you, go for it, however you will need to be running a native ARM distro, as I doubt that most of my new packages will succeed in a cross-build.

Monitor my blog, I do intend to upload my local T2 and will announce it.
