Did you change DISTRO_SPECS at both places?

Yep, both places.

Thanks :D :D :D If you think it would help people keep things straight, It could be Adrive_alphaOS.

Re: BDRV or maybe CDRV

Great thoughts Scooby. One of my goals is to stay as close to the alphaOS structure as I can while getting an 'adrive' back. Offhand, the thing that would seem to me to do that most cleanly would be to do the reorder you suggest RECORDLIST="$SAVEFILENAMEONLY $BFACTOR $AFACTOR $SFSFILENAMEONLY $...

Re: BDRV or maybe CDRV

Sim I was thinking. I always add the same stuff to new AlphaOS'es I'm thinking making a sfs and load it to BDRV-layer (sfs added to iso) I've seen BDRV is paired with desktop_*.sfs Do you think its a good idea to add it as BDRV or should I create CDRV? Maybe easiest would be a custom sfs loaded wit...

Re: Version 12.0 - Gtk 3.10 and Emendo

What about

Code: Select all

#!/bin/sh

openbox-menu | grep -q "Cannot create menu" 

echo $?

if [ $? -eq 0 ]; then
  rm -r $HOME/.cache
  rm /tmp/.menu-cached-*
  openbox-menu

Re: Version 12.0 - Gtk 3.10 and Emendo

As promised, now that abiword is on board, I installed (Grub4Dos frugal on CF card in ide adaptor) to one of the Pentium M intel i2200 pro wireless ALPS touchpad laptops. As previously, for the intel 2200 pro wireless to work with wpa encryption, lib80211_crypt_ccmp must be loaded as the kernel does...

Re: Abiword 2.8.6 in alphaOS 12

It's minimal and roughly 1/10th the reported size of the pacman install which I balked at. whats the difference? pacman adds unnecessary dependencies? Do you build yourself or is it a binary download? Difference is primarily dependencies pacman adds. All it really needs is wv and libgsf, enchant an...

Re: Abiword 2.8.6 in alphaOS 12

I agree darkcity, all of the 2.8.x abiwords have their 'quirks'. I use it because it's small wrt all of the offices, will open and write to all of the everchanging microslurp formats, spellchecks, and doesn't demand much of the older machines I rescue and rehome. I'll have a go at 3.0.0 and see how ...

It's minimal and roughly 1/10th the reported size of the pacman install which I balked at. If there is any interest I could u...

Re: Printing in 11

Hi John, Printing sets up the same in 12 as in 11 and works fine. The only glitch remains as above that either called from CUPS or pasting http://localhost:631 into it, the firefox in 11 or 12 just stalls. Opera 12.16, either called by cups or pasting http://localhost:631 into it snaps right to the ...
