@johan most of the pep way of things are finished. I.e most of the skinned stuff you see in pep 10 is finished.

Hmmm, in the beginning alot of folks stood up to help, but I guess with life and stuff not a lot of that came to fruition.  So only a very few actual devs stuck around. And between full-time work and free time I suppose is one big reason, things take time plus creating base line documents as we go through the process to have a sound foundation for future peps... ;).

Calamares actually has better documentation.... That's why... Ubiquity although easy enough to configure...it was the lack of documentation, at first...then the other thing, being dependent on Ubuntu...once we broke from that ubiquity was not needed. Now instead of casper etc the Debian live build  / wrapper tools are used.

Mint-update.....hmmmm this is an odd thing isn't it.... Pep 10 is based on Ubuntu but depends on Linux mint to categorize, it's updates...now you're dependent on. Two distros for something not just one  ???..... If any of those two change something it most definitely will affect peppermintOS.

I dunno it doesn't really leave much wiggle room for pep to make its own development decisions...

I think the idea is........ instead of being a skinned Ubuntu basically, getting pep less dependent on things will help innovation and give it..... it's own ground to stand on.

All in all building a pathway to give an option to get away from the Ubuntu eco system I guess you could say adds to the time as well.  ;)

Hope this help you  ;D

Software & Applications / Another Gnu make issue
« Last post by straybit on October 11, 2020, 12:47:49 pm »
I have successfully built a static library but now I'm trying to set it up to where I either build a static or a dynamic library.  With the makefile and sources in src where it works, I tried moving the makefile to src/static and adjusting
Code: [Select]
SRC := $(wildcard *.c)
OBJ = $(patsubst %.c,%.o,$(SRC))
to
Code: [Select]
SRC := $(wildcard ../*.c)
OBJ = $(patsubst ../%.c,%.o,$(SRC))
which is supposed to pick up the source files from src and put the object files in static. When I tried to run make, it couldn't find the source files!
Apparently, Gnu's logic (or code) is different than what I was expecting.
Any ideas?

Software & Applications / A problem with Gnu makefile
« Last post by straybit on October 11, 2020, 12:31:19 pm »
I have this make file
Spoiler (click here to view / hide)
[close]
the error is:
Quote
/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lbrlib.a
collect2: error: ld returned 1 exit status
<builtin>: recipe for target 'gnusrch' failed
make: *** [gnusrch] Error 1
I've tried '-lbrlib.a' and '-llibbrlib.a'
'libbrlib.a' is in 'LDIR = ~/Data/bin/lib/'
and note that this a static build:
CFLAGS = -Wall -I$(IDIR) -L$(LDIR) -lbrlib.a -static
Even when I removed the erroring file, the next one would error.
Given the directory structure for this
Code: [Select]
/home/bruce/Data/bin/src/mysrchand libbrlib.a is in
Code: [Select]
/home/bruce/Data/bin/libIt is obvious that I'm doing something wrong but I dont know what it could be.  Any ideas?

I learned electronics in the days of vacuum tubes and hand wired point to point chassis when electronics was made to be repaired when it did fail and then still used for years afterward.
Although I only did it for fun, I 'repaired' many vacuum tube radios, had parts left over and they played better than before they quit.

My first Linux experience was trying to install Slackware on a Desktop (had Win 3.1) with 8 MB ram.  The notices said that it would run with 8 MB.  In response to my question, Patrick said "Yes. It would run but would need a bit more to install!".
Then, about 2009, I found VectorLinux 5.9 and was faithful to it until their lead person backed off a few years ago.  Early this year, I found P10 and have dropped all winders.  The one at home is on a Compaq laptop that had WinVista.  Both the main and CMOS batteries are shot so I have to hit Time and Date every time I turn it on!  A couple of the ones at the office are dual booted with Win10 which rarely sees the light of day.
Hopefully, my new laptop arrives Tuesday and  works this time.  (They were quick to have it returned for replacement/repair so I'm not complaining - yet.)  Then I'll have to learn Pop!_OS 20.04 LTS (64-bit) but since it's also based on Ubuntu, it shouldn't be too hard.

@grafiksinc: You already answered some. What is finished for instance and a reason why it's  not released yet? Why Calamares and not Ubiquity installer? Mint update works perfect. Please keep it.

That is exactly what I was thinking. But what option should i choose for the above intel driver?
  • Continue using manually installed driver
  • or do not use the device?
