Puppy Installation




Create your own digipup.

Please follow these instructions to create your own Puppy with the W1HKJ ham software suite:
The pet installer will add each executable to the menu system.  You will find the entries on the "Network" or "Internet" menu heirarchy, depending on Puppy version you are using.

Open the Rox viewer in the Home directory (the home icon on the desktop).  Click on "my-applications" and then "bin".  You should find the new executable items in this directory, /root/my-applications/bin.  You can assign a nice 48x48 png image to each of the executables.
The executable files in the ~/my-applications/bin directory should now be shown with the icon images that you selected.

If you want to create a desktop item for each of these you can do so with a very simple step
XML files for fldigi rigCAT

Open the ~/my-applications directory in your Rox filer.  Then click on the directory xmls (that was added when petget installed fldigi).  Click on xmlarchives.html; SeaMonkey should open with the html file in view.  Read and follow the instructions contained therein.

Hamlib shared libraries

Open the ~/my-applications directory in your Rox filer.  Then click on the directory lib which was also added when petget installed fldigi.  You should see 24 files that comprise the complete hamlib shared lib system.  Do not remove or move any of these files unless you are uninstalling fldigi.  You need them to be present even if you do not use the hamlib interface to your transceiver.  You can see which shared libraries that fldigi depends on by opening a terminal window and cd'ing to ~/my-applications/bin.  Then execute "ldd fldigi" and you will see that the petget system has placed the hamlib*so files in a location that is in the search path for shared libs.

Final Installation

When everything is working as you expect you can either save your changes to a file, back to the CD, or you might want to remaster the ISO image.  All of these are available either from the Puppy Menu system or when you exit Puppy.
