Finally a distro that I can carry with me in a pendriv

Post#1 by pannet1 » 04 Feb 2017, 06:43

Awesome work.

I have been using various flavors of Linux for many years now. More details https://pannet1.wordpress.com/2017/02/0 ... usb-linux/. I am only missing two packages before migrating fully from elementary os to porteus.

aa) i need atom editor for php, python, html, sass, bourbon, neat programming

bb) i need wine because many of the stock market trading software in india runs only won Win*

Or use Porteus' USM and search for wine. It will create a wine .xzm module for you.

Hi Blaze,

I installed them. But i was expecting a nicer GUI (wine-hq or something in ubuntu) that will encourage me to install 3rd party application. Then I got playonlinux and wine bundled by one of the poster here. But unable to run it properly because lot of crashes. So I am kind of lost.

Thank you so much for your help. I highly appreciate it.

BTW. I got atom editor. It works flawlessly.

Hi Ed_P,

I am running x_64 version of Porteus and I read somewhere that 64 bit wine package does not play well with 32 bit application and also /usr/bin/wine is missing in line 42 error is throwing up.

pannet1, try these versions wine for your architecture
Wine x32
Wine x86_64
or try USM. In terminal type these commands:

Code: Select all

su
toor
usm -u usm
usm -u all
usm -g wine
Cheers

hi blaze,

Code: Select all

guest@porteus:~$ file /usr/bin/wine
/usr/bin/wine: symbolic link to wine64
guest@porteus:~$ 
I am using Porteus Mate x64 version. There is no wine config option in the menu and the command line returns the above.

Hi Blaze,

Ah, my bad. I am using mate and was searching for wine in the menu. Actually it is in the control panel. But still nothing opens when i click it. So I am going to build another wine
module with a new set of dependencies and try again.

BTW: I have installed httpd, mariadb and php5 without any problems.

Try to run this command

Thanks.

pannet1, no. I think you don't have compat32-libraries

Code: Select all

root@porteus:/home/guest# ls /mnt/loop/var/log/packages/
compat32-libraries-3.0-x86_64-1sl  wine-1.9.16-x86_64-1sg
root@porteus:/home/guest#
You can try wine-1.9.16-x64-3.2-GeckoMono-1.xzm or http://bear.alienbase.nl/mirrors/slackware-live/bonus/

Code: Select all

	0050-multilib-current-x86_64.sxz	2017-01-27 11:30 	366M	 
	0060-wine-1.9.23-current-x86_64.sxz	2016-12-10 12:09 	204M	 
rename .sxz to .xzm and activate these modules.

hi Blaze,

Code: Select all

root@porteus:/home/guest# ls /mnt/loop/var/log/packages/
/bin/ls: cannot access '/mnt/loop/var/log/packages/': No such file or directory
i downloaded the packages from this url http://bear.alienbase.nl/mirrors/slackware-live/bonus/. None of the yandex links you give works for me. I think its something to do with my location. I downloaded both the packages, renamed and activated. But nothing seemed to happen.

Code: Select all

root@porteus:/home/guest# /home/guest# find /usr/bin -iname "winecfg"
bash: /home/guest#: No such file or directory
root@porteus:/home/guest# find /usr/share/applications -iname "wine"
root@porteus:/home/guest# cat /usr/share/applications/winecfg.desktop 
cat: /usr/share/applications/winecfg.desktop: No such file or directory
root@porteus:/home/guest# 
I tried to deactivate the compat libs and install wine first and then compat lib later and try. More bad news.

I am frustrated and thinking of rebooting with fresh and doing the whole exercise again
