Subject description: 528

Full install of 528 on Celeron 2400MHz PC with SIS graphics.

Works great.! I am soo happy, and amazed that Puppy 5 series works on my PC. I have tried Ubuntu (10 and 11) and Mint before, and neither would work well with the onboard graphics of my PC, not even after installing prop. SIS driver. But the XORG in puppy 5 series does it !

Audio: OK, Wireless OK, Ethernet OK, CD burner OK.

Next is printer. It's late now, so we will look at it tomorrow.

PlayDayz, thanks for your energy to pull this through to the end. I understand that this bugfix update ran out of control when more and more got updated, and understand that becuase of the risk in this you hesitated between 2HD and 528. Glad it proved good enough as a the best 5xx puppy.

Regards,

Harm

-edit- had one instance where firefox (5) kept running after closing. Restarting caused a popup "firefox is still running". Had to kill the task. Then all was okay again.

Don't know about 'Two Headed Dog'

Now it's an official Lupu I'm as happy as a dog with two tails!

Just need:

- Barry to change the Puppylinux.com page to identify 5.2.8 and not 5.2.5
- Lobster to change his wiki page to 5.2.8 (and not 5.2.6)
- Distrowatch to be informed

- to be prepared for the next invasion of new users!

Thanks Playdayz and the team.

Subject description: THANKS EVERYONE!! 8-)

Thanks everyone for yet another truly spectacular success story here! 5.2.8 is simply "the best of the best" - not only to come out of the Puppy Kennels - but of all the Linux distros I've managed to have tried in my nearly 8 year to date love affair with "Unix-like operating systems".

Congratulations to all!

Cheers/Amicalement,

Yes it is supposed to happen, assuming you updated. Just right-click and Remove Item(s) for the one you don't want.

You do know that using pfix=ram Puppy will not use the save file when booted?

Yes, thank you, bigpup.

That was my attempt at being cautious; I've now removed the pfix=ram.

It will update Lucid 5.2.5 or any previous versions of Lucid. Before updating please make a backup copy of your lupusave file. However, a fresh install is always the easiest and that is what is recommended.

I'm an old, timid nooby.

Downloaded the iso onto my Acer Acer Aspire One (running frugal 525).
Left clicked the iso and copied all the files into /mnt/sda6/p528
Copied the existing part of menu.lst that referred to 525 and changed it, to
Code:
title NEW puppy 528
root (hd0,5)
kernel /p528/vmlinuz PDEV1=sda6 PMEDIA=satahd psubdir=p528 pfix=ram
initrd /p528/initrd.gz


Rebooted, chose the new one.

Bingo! A beautiful new Puppy!! Connects to Internet out of the box.

THANK YOU ALL!!
