So far so good. This is the first Puppy version that I can run on my laptop WITHOUT turning off ACPI. Laughing

Nice....

This release is package-compatible with Slackware 12, although I could not seem to find where to start. EDIT: here.

Thanks, Barry!

I hope Barry will see this post. I was wondering if this version will be split into parts like 2.17.1 was, so us slow dialup saps have a better chance of downloading it?
Cool

Have used 3.00 full on both HP Pavilion zx6000 with 512 Meg memory and home made tower 2 Gig memory and 1 Gig chip. Both work fine and both upgraded. My laptop did loose my Google Earth desktop icon, but put it back and everything works.

Both units have large swap partitions.

Results extracting both standard and retro versions from ISOs with ISO Master to an HP Pavilion XE-736 Celeron 600 MHz w/256M RAM, mobo video:

Standard version:

Only low resolution modes work. Higher than 800X600 results in seriously pincushioned video display.

Retro version:

1) extracted files are ALL CAPS
2) kernel was named VMLINUZ. (note trailing ".")
3) both above problems result in Grub hanging up
4) editing menu.lst with appropriate CAPS resulted in booting further into the process, but ultimately hanging up.

Renamed all files to lower-case and removed trailing "." from vmlinuz. It then booted, however the video problem described above remains.

Both versions use over 250M of RAM when run from frugal installs -- not a good thing for boxes with video that shares mobo RAM.

So for this box, v3.00 has a number of show stoppers. Back to a well-working v2.12 full install for The Alien ...

EDIT: The "installation" of both 3.00 and the retro were done with "manually" extracted files and then editing the menu.lst in a pre-existing partition. Booting from CD and using version 3.00's Universal Installer may or may not resolve the ALL CAPS and trailing "." issues. My burner recently shat the bed, so I can't try the latter method of installion. -aj

PPPOE (ADSL) connection still doesn't work in this final build. RP-PPPOE doesn't do anything other than display a connection timeout message after failing to connect.There's no modem activity at all during the connection phase.

I tried a few puppies before, they came and left again. Woof. Almost impossible to install. But this one installed easily and is therefor to stay and to be tried further. I' m running this on a Asus K8 Sempron2600+ integrated ATI/VIA video graphics (often a sore!). Actual competition: PClinuxOS 2007, LInuxMint 3.1 Celena, Wolvix 1.1.0 Hunter and Mepis 6.5.

I' d like to express my admiration for this tiny distro, my appreciation and thanks to the developers for their remarkable and amazing work.

panzerpuppy, I don't use rp-pppoe, and in the past when something has been wrong with it, people like GuestTwo figured out the problem and told me how to fix it. Especially GuestTwo, he is an expert at using it, but I don't think that he has been on the forum for awhile.
