Subject description: GamePUP game requests
 

Hi!
I just downloaded the GamePUP 2.16 ISO and love it.
But, I just had an idea that could make it the ultimate game disk!

Why not add a section with classic game console emulators!
You know, those old Atari 2600, NES and such. It could be a "bring your own ROM" type of thing.

Provided the user has the ROM files, it could be a source of unlimited games!

You could also include the DOOM-Legacy engine (http://legacy.newdoom.com/). You provide the emulator, the user provides the WAD files Smile

And since the engines are usually quite small, it wouldn't bloat the distro (leave the bloating to the user Smile )

I wish I could help the build... but I'm just an average user when it comes to Linux...

Subject description: What does this error mean?
 

Hello,

The first time I got it from his location and had to use my WinXP PC to do it. No good as Roxio didn't make a bootable image. This last time I found it briefly with some other Puppy CD files and burned it with Xandros 4 to reveal this error on booting it:

Boot: Loading isolinux: Disk error D3, AX=425B, drive 9F

Looking forward to getting a good image made someday, is there something I did wrong?

Thanks,
ChiJoan

You are using Linux, you are NOT average. Average people use m$ windoze because they don't know any better.

Downloaded and burned the GamePup iso with no problems. It is wonderful. Enjoyed playing the different games. Thank you so very much. My husband and I are big PC game players (only on Linux, of course). You included most of my favorite games, especially SuperTux!

Only problem I found was when I tried to do a frugal install. The Universal Installer copied all the files, but never continued with the GRUB bootloader. I had to click on that separately and still it wouldn't install in the partition I had selected. I already have LILO installed in my MBR so wanted GRUB installed onto the partition. After several tries, it completely wiped my ext3 partition (even the lost & found folder). I ended up deleting the partition and recreating it. Haven't tried reinstalling. May just run it from the CD. Works great from the Live-CD with a pup_save file.

Once again, great job on a great gaming Puppy. Thank You! Very Happy

Did you verify the MD5 checksum?
Things like that can happen with corrupt images (bad download)... things like that happen from time to time.

If you go to www.portableapps.com, you can find a program called winMD5sum... very handy (for winXP)

As for me, I burned it with Nero... no problems.

While going through my bookmarks, I found 2 pages that contain some videogame console emulators that might be worth checking out.

http://www.usinglinux.org/emulators/
and
http://www.linuxlinks.com/Software/Emulators/

There must be some that will work in Pup with minimal work...

This should do it even if your connection is interrupted.

PostPosted: Tue 11 Sep 2007, 13:13    Post subject: Upgrading GamesPup216  

I've found that this software can be easily upgraded to the latest version of Puppy Linux, 2.17.1 using the Puppy Linux installer and selecting upgrade.

All of the games in GamesPup216 are retained and work!! Additional games from version 2.17.1 are added to the games menu. The game launcher still works.

I first changed my GamesPup216 desktop to JWM by exiting to the command prompt and typing startx JWM then I did the bugrade using the bootable Puppy Linux 2.17.1 CD.
