Users of StretchDog and its variants might want/need a kernel upgrade from the stock k4.9.0. Here is an easy way:

1. Go here and get a DevuanDog ISO.
2. Extract it and locate the four files initrd1.xz, initrd.img, vmlinuz1, k-4.19.0-5-amd64.squashfs.
3. Drop them into the "live" folder of your Stretch install. The first three will overwrite the current versions.
4. Reboot.

---------------

There have been reports of Puppy users trying to install various Puppies onto emmc drives. The boot fails with an "SFS file not found" error. I can confirm this with some (but not all) emmc setups.

FWIW, Fred's Dog builds have always been able to boot from an emmc drive for me.

Here are some tips for working with cheap Windows "cloudbooks".

1. Some of them have bleeding-edge wifi devices that need a change to PeasyWiFi's config. Set DRIVER=nl80211.

2. Most on-board speakers are dreadful. Get a little Bluetooth speaker with an Aux input and plug it into the headphone jack. Even with mono output, this will give better sound.

Hi gabtech,

If you can provide more details, e.g. which screencaster you used, I will try if I can reproduce the problem and search for a possible fix.

Fred

Hi Fred,

I found some ffmpeg commands online and modified them to suit my needs. I can happily record my desktop using the ffmpeg script attached but with some warnings. Could you refine it?
