Melody -- if you have problems, feel free to post a thread! Last thing any of us want to hear is someone leaving Puppy because they couldn't make it work.

It is, however, always important to inform us of your computer's make and model, as well as all the specifications you know (processor / ram / hdd size / etc) and which puppy you are trying to use.

Also, and most importantly, Welcome to the Kennels. We aim to be friendly folks here.

Hello puppy-users Smile
do you know if I can install two or more puppy on a usb drive and choose which puppy to load on boot-up?
If yes, you can tell me how to?
Or, do you know if I can install ubuntu or puppy in the same usb-driver and choose which run on boot-up?

hi difedepe

an example of how to do this for two puppies.......
1.on your usb make a folder for each puppy.... eg. lucid and slacko
2.mount the puppy iso or cd by clicking on it and copy 3 files ,the 'initrd' the 'vmlinuz' and 'puppy.sfs' to the folder on the usb.
3.repeat with the other folder for the other puppy.
4. run 'grub4dos' from the menu/system/grub4dos bootloader
5.choose your usb from the box, and tick search only this drive.
6.click ok and ok
7. done!

you can have as many puppies as you like on the drive.... just pop them in a folder and run grub4dos again to pick them up.

Thanks very very much Smile
I'll try later @home and I'll inform you, but I have a doubt.
before creating the two forlders and copy the "3" files inside each folder I have to install one puppy with linuxliveusb creator in the root, right?
after this I move the diles in the forder.
Another question. The saved set up (.3fs files) will be created by each distro and they will be different right?


thanks a lot in advance,
Peppe.

you would need to be booted into puppy to do that. so yes, you would need to put puppy on the usb or burn a cd.

and yes, each puppy would have it's own savefile

I have a Asus Eeepc 900 with 4GB of ext2 partition and one 16GB of ext3?

not so sure I have a poor memory. could be that in total it is a 16GB SD
that is paritioned in three with 75MB fat16 or 32 and one 4GB with ext2 for
the Debian/Xandros partition and 12GB of ext3 which is the user partition .

So should I use Puppy 5.3 or Slacko 5.3 or Snow Puppy 5 or Puppeee44.


I still have lupu 528 where does one download Puppy 5.3?

why would one be better than the other. I would not prefer puppeee44 because it would require months of questions on the forum with none answering and me getting more sad every day. Too steep learning curve
so many things done in a different way. What I like about puppeee is that
Jemimah did her best to get all the Asus 900 features to work.

which one can not expect from any standard distro.

Hi I've just started using Puppy 5.3 but am having trouble connecting to the internet using a wired connection on my Acer laptop. Wifi works fine though. My ethernet controller is an Atheros AR8131 PCI-E. Is there an updated driver for this?

http://distro.ibiblio.org/pub/linux/distributions/

has got a not tiny variety of folders related to Puppy Linux :
http://distro.ibiblio.org/pub/linux/distributions/puppylinux/puppy-5.3/
would be the folder for slacko

http://distro.ibiblio.org/pub/linux/distributions/quirky/
would cover quirky, wary .racy, drake

http://distro.ibiblio.org/pub/linux/distributions/fatdog/
would cover the 64-bit area i guess [ me thinking less than 200MB not really fat ]

http://distro.ibiblio.org/pub/linux/distributions/puppyrus/
would cover the Russian language i guess

http://distro.ibiblio.org/pub/linux/distributions/t2/stable/7.0-rc2/minimal-i486/
would cover [ parts of ] the Puppy build environment i guess .

I just add them here , because runtt21 made an ibilio bookmark in his Foxy_3 browser [ me thinking i had not found any Puppy browser that good until now ]

AND OF COURSE if IBILIO may be slow :

http://ftp.nluug.nl/pub/os/Linux/distr/
should contain the above mentioned paths to files , too
Very Happy

Subject description: Wireless network
 

Newbie here Smile

I just installed slacko to replace puppy 529 because to be honest, it seemed slicker and better.

But one problem.

I have a wireless WPA2 router which connected fine with 529 but refuses to connect in slacko.

I have tried all 3 network setups (Frisbee, Barry's simple, and the full Network connection wizard). The Barry's simple got the closest, but refused the WPA2 connection. The other's don't even see my router.

The driver works, as 'Barry's simple' scans and finds my router OK. It assigns an IP but then complains and quits.

In Lucid 5.29 it connects fine.

Any solution for me?

Subject description: How to verify installed Puppy version
 

I installed Slacko 5.3 and created lupusave. After that I downloaded Puppy 5.3.1 HIGMEM and used it. I was asked to upgrade my lupusave and accepted. In the following reboot I saw an identification for 5.3.1 Now I realized that there is a slacko-5.3-SCSI-PAE_HIGHMEM-ALT.iso___slacko-5.3.1-SCSI-PAE_HIGHMEM-ALT.iso.delta that I haven't downloaded. Do I need to install it? My system seems OK. I think that first I have to verify my Slacko version installed, but I don't know how. Thank you.

Hi rincon155,

One way to see which version you have is to left click on the green four drawer box near the clock in your system tray. Then look in the window that appears at the top of your screen and note the details for comparison.

With less than 4 GB of RAM the PAE version will gain you nothing, but if you already have it and it works it may do no harm.

My regards

PostPosted: Fri 30 Dec 2011, 07:10    Post subject: Slacko Wireless network problem
Subject description: Advent 5711 laptop
 

More info on my wireless problem.

It's a laptop ADVENT 5711
Wireless network is the LiteOn WN 6302L (which is a Realtek 8187SE)

Slacko supposedly supports the Realtek 8187SE but as I posted earlier, none of the network wizards can 'see' the router.

I've tried this with 2 seperate routers,

Can anyone give me a troubleshooting route to solve this problem? I'm new to Puppy and Linux generally, but I can follow simple instructions.

The laptop user (a pensioner) is threatening to re-install Windows!

Tried so far, without success:
All 3 network connect wizards
Loading the windows driver as an NDISWrapper
Going through the 'load module' list

Slacko reports it has the 8187 module loaded.
