I'd go for Dingo if I were you, earlytv


I just made up a USB superfloppy memory stick with 3.96 alpha, DINGO, and it boots into the Wyse S90 just fine.

2.17 and now 3.96 runs slow on the S90, but at 1/3 the speed of my 1gig systems I guess?

Open to any ideas on what puppy would be faster or how to make puppy faster?

Right, time to post before back to study. Hopefully my entire University existence will be over in just a few short hours... last essay. What better way to spend it than procrastinating for a few more minutes on Puppy....anyway....

I've created a pupplet called TigerPup, which is still very much under development. Based on wNOP's Compiz-Fusion scripts, it's become a pupplet in it's own right. I've also added launchers and a script to utilize puppy's easy portability on usb flash drives. TigerPup is being created with the novice computer user in mind; the idea is point and click.

For more info and screenshots, go to: http://www.puppylinux.org/wiki/archives/old-wikka-wikki/categoryreleases/tigerpup

Enjoy!

No thats not the main link and the whole page is kind of bias towards Tmxxine 64 lines worth
When others like rudy,teenpup, My Fire Hydrant Series & Living water, and many others are barely touched and are equally as good.

Try this one its better
http://www.puppylinux.org/wiki/archives/old-wikka-wikki/categoryderivative/puplets

Also if you want more about my own derivatives go to
www.ttuuxxx.com
also at that website I have a forum where you can post about those versions and also upload software up to 40MB

hope that helps

Hello Granny
Just till recently I had the same laptop you have.I'm still learning linux but I can help you setting up your tp770x .
let us start with the easy part....

puppy linux version 2.16 worked just fine for me but i might be wrong not spending enough time to try getting the modem to work on later versions. version 2.17 also worked just fine but it has that feature of detecting the modem on boot which for some reason unknown to (still green when it come to linux...)effected my modest printer and when trying to use the modem the system hangs?!!

do you want to run puppy linux from :
a- what they call "Frugal install" which is by from cd,usb or extracting the system files to your HD.
b- or you want full install to your HD ?
If I may suggest that you keep windows till you become more familiar with puppy linux so if somehow you can have puppy on a cd or if you have a flash drive (512mb did just fine for me).

the third issue you have to consider is making a choice between the modem or sound.....again chances are I am wrong about this but what i noticed is that to get the sound working i have to disable quick boot but the modem will not work and as an experienced windows users am sure you know about resources conflict issues as that mwave modem also works as a sound card with shared IRQ.to get the modem working I enabled quick boot and using the mwave pet the modem was easy to setup just by apply whats in the mwave help document.
by the way if the screen resolution is to big/not clear for you setting up xvesa click on more and type 0x011A
Good luck Lady.

do all puplet derivatives work as multisession discs? (once iso is burned on dvd-r) I'm interested in trying puppy linux or a puplet.

what's a recommended program? something similar to grafpup (intended towards graphic imaging). along with basic user programs like firefox, music player, pdf foxit.

PostPosted: Sun 12 Jul 2009, 17:15    Post subject: Derivatives based on 4.1.1 or 4.2.1  

I'm looking for derivatives based on 4.1.1 or 4.2.1 due to my Acer Laptop 5100 not booting with versions other and these.

I've tried
NewYearsPup RC10.
Puppy 4.2.1 retro
Boxpup 4.2.1 retro

A real plus would being able to load in more than 3 sfs files.

My goal is to have a bootable USB with the Puppy Derivative and the ability to run windows applications found at http://portableapps.com/

Thanks

Thom

You could give browserpuppy a try.
