The End

To all who are waiting on any further releases of MyWolfe I must say that I will not be able to do this. I have for years been fighting with anxiety disorder along with depression. I have tried to learn what I needed to get more of the underlying software support for gnome keyring and those files needed to get auto mounting working but I do not have the knowledge nor the patience. While discussing this with my therapist; she felt that I was putting more stress on my self than I was able to handle so I have stopped development of MyWolfe.

Building in woof begins

I now have the files I need to start to build MyWolfe-030 going thought the woof build system now. Being they are in tar.bz2 format it takes longer than a pet build so it may take some time then have to see if I have it configed right to boot. This build will have the linux-kernel- with all the modules I could get prebuild. It will have the xorg-server-1.9.4 I put in all the normal input video drivers that are in most puppys, there are some more I may put in later. It has taken me a while to get this far with learning how the T2-project worked then building the files needed by woof to build the packages and trouble shooting my error I made in typing them in. I have high hopes for this build just hope I don't run into to much trouble getting it all to run smooth.

Working on it

I have been working on the next MyWolfe-030. I have most of the files compiled thought T2 completed and am now working on moving the files into the woof build system and getting it all config for the next build cycle. I have been following Barry's comment on using spot or fido and I may see about setting them up in the build not sure yet. With working long hours and being so tired it has been had to concentrate but working at it now.

Where have I been

This is to let ever body know that I am still around been working a lot and spending most of my free time working on the T2 build system to get the files needed for the next upgrade of MyWolfe. I have a good many of the files created, today got the kernel to compile but am having a time getting the xorg-server to compile. I am working on xorg-server-1.10.1 at this time having to wait for it to compile and see if it complete or not. There is still some issues with the new Xfce files but still have to update some and fix a few links. I have completed about 532 files so far just a 100 or so to go.

I am Happy

I am happy to announce that I posted MyWolfe back on 02/09/2011 and to date it has been downloaded 1866 time. I am not in with the big boys but not bad I think it is about 900 downloads per mouth. Cool and I only hope that all that have downloaded MyWolfe are enjoying it as much as I am.

Puppys Roots

Hi MyWolfe fans I am working on a new set of files for MyWolfe and have decided to go back to Puppylinuxs roots the T2-Project build system. Barry has used lately the T2-8rc files to build Puppylinux 2.10, 4.0 and Quirky in 2009. Now I am trying to get all the files compiled for x86 processors built at the i686 level. Now this may not work for everybody but a lot of the computers today are i686 or higher. Puppylinux as produced by Barry are done on the i486 level because he is trying to be able to run on as many of the older computers can be done. T2 has the ability to build at many levels and cross builds too. It has a set up for Atom processors but that would limit MyWolfe a lot maybe make a separate build just for net-books next not sure. It has been a learning experience for one thing but I do like to tinker with the different build systems. I have had this little net-book working on the T2 build system for 2 days now and am fixing broken packages and trying to build them.

Xfce Orage

You may ask what is Orage.

Orage provides a calendar which integrates nicely into the Xfce Desktop Environment. It is highly configurable and supports alerts based on dates. It warns you with popup or audio alarm. As it is an application for every day use, it launches itself in the background as a daemon and can be accessed using the Orage Clock plugin for the panel.
I have compiled the latest release Orage-4.8 did not include it in MyWolfe-028 becouse it was having some issus and waited tell it was sorted out download here If you have any problems please let me know. You can file a bug report at Sourceforge if you like.

MyWolfe-027-rc1 is ready

I have uploaded MyWolfe-027-rc1 and it is ready for download. I almost made this a final but wanted to see if anybody had any problems with it. I have fixed it so when you use pmount to mount a drive it will open up Thunar in the drive for you. I found what has been the problem with thumbnails not showing up in Thunar it was a syslink but that is now fixed too. I have put in a syslink for firefox in the /usr/bin so that when you use the web browser launcher it will give you the option to use mozilla firefox without having to find it.

Added files

Upgraded files
xf ce4-settings-4.8.1

I did forget to mention but starting in MyWolfe-024 I had Gimp-2.6.8, Xine-ui-9.6, xine-libs-1.1.19, xine-pluger-1.02

 Give it a try and let me know what you think.

Xfce 4.8

Well it is out. I am working on getting it going but first have to get a upgraded xorg-xserver compiled but before that have to compile a updated xcb libs. So it will take some time have to work and make money for a living but that is life. Things are going good so far had to upgrade the glib, gtk+ and pango first. Must alwas do it in steps to get it right.

All good plans don't always work

I had tried again to get Xfce-4.8-rc2 to build with not as much luck as I wanted. Could not get Thunar to mount drives, no way to reboot or poweroff but to log out and do it at console. Then the worst I have always told people how easy it is to back up puppy linux well not when you have a lot outside your save file like 60 gigs of files and you yourself did not do a backup and lost all your files on your drive so now I am set back a bit but will start over and try and document better and do it with a plan and not jumping in feet first. So back up puppy fans.

Tuesday, January 4, 2011


This is a test of the new glib 2.24.2 gtk+ 2.20.1 and pango 2.18.3. As a added bonus I put in the LibreOffice 3.3rc2 added back Gimp-2.6.8. I upgraded Xine libs to 1.1.19 and a few other small libs were upgraded. I also put back in Pidgin was hoping to put in the latest but it just does not want to compile. If those all work well have some more upgrade planed and am doing some more compiling now but that does not always mean I will get what I want. glibc has been a nightmare to get right.

You can download the iso here MyWolfe-022

Try it out and let me know what you think
