======Introduction======
"Debianization" is my coined term for debianizing, or fully installing & enabling debian versions of DPKG and apt-get on puppy. I don't have any specific reason for doing this, other than research and trying to build puppy up to a debian distro. I have encountered many problems along the way, so if you find one that is not addressed in here, please visit [[http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=49254 this topic]] and post about it.

======Required Packages======
I find it kind of silly that debian has no list whatsoever of required packages to get a bare system running. Here's a list of packages that I have needed while Debianizing my system. Required packages may differ, or I may have forgotten to add one. Go ahead and add it yourself, you'll be benefiting the whole community ;) (To edit, add /edit to the URL bar in your address.

Revision [5574]

Edited on 2010-02-11 20:35:29 by tgp1994 [Finalized the procedure. Woot.]
Additions:
""<font color="red" size=6>Warning!</font>"" The actual success of "debianizing" puppy may vary, and I only cover the basic procedure. DO NOT try this on a puppy save that you want to keep, or if you do actually want to try this on a valuable puppy save, then BACK IT UP. You have been warned.
Starting at the very beginning here, I'm assuming that you have just downloaded the puppy ISO from [[http://puppylinux.org/main/index.php?file=Download%20Latest%20Release.htm this link.]] I myself will be installing it into a blank hard drive in my PC, but whether you are doing the same or installing in a Virtual Machine, the step process is similar.
1a. Burn to a CD (Preferably RW, so you can "re-write" it when another puppy distro comes out.)
1b. Follow [[http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=29653 this VERY useful]] full hd installation guide, all the way up to the point where you have booted from the hard drive.
2. Go to Menu> Setup> Wizard Wizard, then click Connect to Internet or Intranet...
2a. For most of you, you should click Internet by network or wireless LAN...
2b. The rest of the network setup should be self explanitory.
3. Navigate to [[http://packages.debian.org this link]] and search/download these packages **AND ALL** of their dependencies to the root of your hard drive:
dpkg
coreutils
3a. You will want to try and install dpkg as soon as possible, since it will make package installation much easier.
4. Follow these steps to install dpkg:
4a. First make sure you have dpkg-deb installed;
4I. Click on install on the desktop
4II. Click on the "Run the puppy package manager" button
4III. Search for dpkg and install the first and only result that comes up.
4b. After that you will never have to go through step 4a again. Now all you have to type is dpkg-deb -x [.deb file]. Ensure that you are in the root of your hard drive, since the files in the .deb archive mirror that of the root of your hard drive.
4c. Search for and download DPKG for lenny on debian's package site, then run dpkg-deb -x /dpkg.deb (Assuming you saved it as dpkg.deb when you downloaded it.)
4d. Now type dpkg to ensure it installed correctly.
5. You may now install the other packages. This can be done by dpkg -i (packagename). Unlike the previous command, these packages //do not// have to be at the root of your hard drive, since dpkg will automatically install them as so.
5a. Eventually you will reach a point where libc6 and libgcc1 will loop-depend on each other, meaning that one asks the other to be installed first, so you will want to run dpkg -i --force-all libgcc1.deb. This should automatically install libgcc1 and libc6. However, when it tries to install libc6, busybox will interrupt saying init is the parent of all processes. Cool story, brah.
5b. Navigate to /var/lib/dpkg/info and edit libc6.postinst. Go to line 367, and comment out all lines from that to line 371. That portion should like this when you are finished:
%%(language-ref)
#if [ "$(stat -c %d/%i /)" = "$(stat -Lc %d/%i /proc/1/root 2>/dev/null)" ]; then
# the devicenumber/inode pair of / is the same as that of /sbin/init's
# root, so we're *not* in a chroot
#(init u ; sleep 1)
#fi
%%
5c. Save and close the file, then run dpkg --configure libc6. It should finish, then at that point you will want to run dpkg -i libgcc1.deb one more time to make sure it is installed as well.
6. After installing libselinux1, you may now install coreutils. ...Wait? What's this? Errors relating to a directory with perl in it!? No one said we needed perl! Ugh. Go ahead and download/install perl-base, then try again.
7. Wait? perl depends on dpkg? Ok, let's have dpkg install its self then... (download and install dpkg, with dpkg >.>)
7a. dpkg will then ask for coreutils, which was [indirectly] asking for perl-base, which was in turn asking for dpkg... so now dpkg -i --force-all perl-base.deb.
7b. coreutils will then whine for a backup file, so create a blank file at /var/backups/infodir.bak. This will require creating the backups directory first.
7c. **NOW** you can run/install coreutils. After that, and just to be safe, dpkg -i dpkg.deb too, to prevent any further confusion. (Which will require downloading and installing lzma first, and any of its dependencies as well. But heck, maybe it(they) will be useful in the future.)
9. Don't forget to get the debian-archive-keyring package, as well as any dependencies that follow, since apt will want them before you install it. Install the dependencies, then install apt.
10. Type apt-get to see what comes out, and if it's something other than "Command not found", congratulations! You're past the worst part of this.
11. Now we need to create the sources.list file. Someone has made an excellent site for this particular task, [[http://debgen.simplylinux.ch/ The Debian Sources List Generator.]] It supports multiple debian releases as well as different branches, too. I will include a perfectly working sample below.
12. Create the sources.list file in the path /etc/apt/, and add the following to it:
%%(language-ref)
###### Debian Main Repos
deb http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/ lenny main contrib non-free
###### Debian Update Repos
deb http://security.debian.org/ lenny/updates main contrib non-free
deb http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/ lenny-proposed-updates main contrib non-free
%%
13. Type apt-get update. You should see lots of links pop up, then the prompt come back. (NOTE: This may take a minute. Let it do its thing.)
14. You are now debianized by my definition. Take care in downloading possibly system-modifying packages, especially ones that change the way linux boots up. Puppy has it's own special way of booting up, so changing that could stop you from getting back to your puppy.
1) Do not restart or shutdown your computer at any point during the above procedure. I have not tested the stability of a booting system after the installation of any one package, thus doing so your self could leave you unbootable.

""<font color="red" size=6>Warning!</font>"" This is a guide I have not spent very much time on. The actual success of "debianizing" puppy may vary, and I haven't even gotten very far yet. DO NOT try this on a puppy save that you want to keep, or if you do actually want to try this on a valuable puppy save, then BACK IT UP. You have been warned.
=====From ISO to hard drive=====
Starting at the very beginning here, I'm assuming that you have just downloaded the puppy ISO from [[http://puppylinux.org/main/index.php?file=Download%20Latest%20Release.htm this link.]] I myself will be installing it into VMWare Workstation 7, but the general procedure, once inside, will be the same.
1a. Open VMWare, make a new Virtual Machine, select the puppy image as the CDROM drive, and boot.
1b. Get an ISO burning program, find a blank CD, and burn puppy to it. Reboot, boot from cd.
2. Go to Menu> Setup> Puppy universal installer, and select Internal (IDE or SATA) hard drive.
a. Continue through the steps for partitioning your hard drive and installing puppy to it.
3. Reboot, this time booting from the hard drive. It is not necessary to save the current session.
4. Go to Menu> Setup> Wizard Wizard, then click Connect to Internet or Intranet...
a. For most of you, you should click Internet by network or wireless LAN...
b. The rest of the network setup should be self explanitory.
5. Navigate to [[http://packages.debian.org/lenny/i386/dpkg/download this link]] and download dpkg from the mirror closest to you. Save it to the root hd.
6. Right click> file *> open with> Pupzip. Then extract all files to the root of your hd.
7. Open rxvt, and type dpkg.
a. You should now see it begin with "dpkg: need an action option". If you see this, you may pat yourself on the back. Otherwise, take a few steps back and repeat.
9. Repeat step 6 on this package.
10. Open rxvt again in case you closed and, and type apt-get. If you get something other than "command not found", you can pat yourself on the back again.
11. Now for something simple. Make a blank file in the path /var/lib/dpkg/, and name that file "status". (So it should be /var/lib/dpkg/status).
a. Also, create another blank file in /var/lib/dpkg/ titled "available".
12. Create another file, this time in the path /etc/apt/, and name it sources.list. Add the following to it:
""<code>deb http://ftp.us.debian.org/lenny lenny main contrib non-free
<br>deb http://security.debian.org/ lenny/updates main contrib non-free</br></code>""
13. In rxvt, type apt-get update. You should see lots of links pop up, then the prompt come back. (NOTE: This may take a minute. Let it do its thing. If you get a few errors mentioning a keyring, you can ignore those.)
14. Now for a dependency. Navigate to [[http://packages.debian.org/lenny/i386/libc6/download this link]] and download libc6, save to the root. Do the usual, like you've always done with the previous .deb packages.
15. To begin with, apt and dpkg have no idea they are installed. They rely on their databases, rather than the file system its self. So to resolve any outstanding dependencies, type apt-get install dpkg.
[to be finished]
1. Navigate to [[http://packages.debian.org/lenny/apt Lenny's APT]] package page. Download it for your processor.
2. Open it with the designated compressed file opener. (DO NOT open it by "running" this file, open it with Pupzip.) Move the contents looking similar to yours (I.E /etc, /sbin) to the root of your HD.
3. Open up a terminal and type apt-get update. If it does not contact any sites, or you get an error, see the notes/help below.
4. You are now free to download w/e you want!
1) You have to manually fill the sources.list file in (/etc/apt/sources.list). Google "Debian sources.list" (I will post it directly some other time.)
2) **DO NOT** use puppy's .deb extractor; instead open each .deb file you manually download with pupzip and extract them to the root of your hard drive. (Subnote: Not to the /root folder, but to the (/) root of your hard drive.)

Additions:
**Problem:** While installing a package, you get an error saying; "/usr/lib/libxml2.so.2: undefined symbol: gzopen64"
**Cause:** I've seen it only occur in one package. (Can't think of it right now.) Happens because of an outdated zlib installation.
**Solution:**
1. Download the zlib1g package from Debian.
2. Extract it's contents, retaining the file/folder structure, to your root.
3. Try installing the package again.
NOTE: Some people have reported that it is necessary to run the command "ldconfig" after doing this. If your package gives the same error after trying steps 1-3, then run the command.
NOTE2: zlib is necessary for all programs to function on puppy. If it gets removed or corrupted, no programs will work, so make sure you have a backup and/or the updated package already extracted.

Additions:
**Cause:** Generally occurs while configuring base-passwd.
**Solution:** None found yet. May have something to do with python or perl.
Deletions:
**Cause:** Generally occurs while configure base-passwd, is the result of not having python installed.
**Solution:** apt-get remove base-passwd, then apt-get install python. Do not download and install all of its dependencies at once though; instead, download one at a time, starting from what you may think is the basic to the most complex.

Additions:
"Debianization" is my coined term for debianizing, or installing lots of debian packages, onto puppy. I don't have any specific reason for doing this, other than research and trying to build puppy up to a debian distro. I have encountered many problems along the way, so if you find one that is not addressed in here, please visit [[http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=49254 this topic]] and post about it.
