Subject description: taharpup 6.2
 

I get the message couldn’t find open cl when trying to install the tnt2 m64 nvidia card’s driver in tahrpup 62. It seems tahrpup 62 is’nt matching properly with the driver’s installer. I have no experience with enviroment variables which seems to be the suggestion from following, the get-nvidia’s logs:

I never succeeded compiling/installing the old legacy71.xx driver in Tahr. It works until Xorg 1.4 and Tahr has 1.15.
I do not know for what kernel patches are needed and for what kernel everything stops alltogether for this driver, probably for 3.5.
You can run Tahr with nouveau, nv or vesa. Just try what works best.

Maybe Wary5.5 is a better option for your old machine. It has the driver for legacy71.xx in its repo.
Older Puppies may also be to your liking. Google 'puppy linux for very old PC'.

Thanks man, your fast reply saved me from useless drudgery. It was simple to install the crap via wary55's ppm but it's not worth it. The readme is very difficult to use it's like learning to code, Further, the driver "Nvidia server settings "GUI has nothing useful other than opengl settings but crap. Worst of all the command line xrandr extension doesn't work, with difficult to understand boolean attributes on, off or true, or True, very bad documentation. I simply run the risk of damaging components inside the machine by servicing it myself in order to get that Nvidia chip out of my CPU. The onboard Intel graphics is what i'm using right now with tahrpup.

Warypup is not for me and snaillike, Tahr is way more efficient than many puppies since it's can use less ram for various purposes, and is overall a better puppy for today, so it's not worth downgrading your puppy just to install an Nvidia driver. And if one has no alternative and is stuck with an Nvidia card, make sure to use the nouveau driver which is way better and giving faster performance than the one compiled for your specific linux kernel. I find intel driver that's shipped with tahrpup way more updated and accelerated than even the non-propriety nouvea for Nvidia so onboard is a better choice.

hello wert

I am glad I could be of some help.

I had an old amd "Palomino" with a geforce sdr 256 on which I ran both Wary5.5 and Tahr.
I found it dificult to choose; it depends on what you want to do and on personal taste.

Installing the legacy71.xx driver did have a noticable effect on performance with Wary.
I don't remember if I installed it through PPM or quickpet (is there quickpet in Wary?) or if I compiled it from source. I think the latter.
I did not have to adjust settings. Nvidia settings detected on first boot after installation of the nvidia driver worked fine.

With Tahr I preferred vesa on my old machine. I never liked nouveau.
You are right that Tahr runs well, even on old machines.
But it can pose some troubles too on old machines.
I did not have SSE2 support on my machine, so some programs did not run. I had to replace Palemoon, for example.
Also, I took out a lot of unneeded to speed up performance.
And it is a pita with ffmpeg/libav for audio.
It is nice that I can use this total rebuild of Tahr on newer machines too.

What do you mean? On these old machines there is no intel graphic card, is there? Can you use an intel driver then?
The CPU does all the graphic work if you do not have a separate graphic card.
Machines with both intel and nvidia graphic cards are just a few years old.

If you like Tahrpup make sure you are using the latest version.
Tahrpup 6.0.5
http://distro.ibiblio.org/puppylinux/puppy-tahr/iso/tahrpup%20-6.0-CE/
It has a lot of bug fixes and improvements and is considered the final release version.

There is a Tahrpup 6.0.6, but it only has very little different from 6.0.5. Mostly minor tweaks for use in newer computers.
Xenialpup is the next version up from Tahrpup.
