Hello, I'm running OS 4 Mini on my Dual Core ThinkPad Z61 laptop. So far everything runs great. Wireless detected and runs well. Question, When firefox and Opera wants to upgrade to version 11 do I run the web update or is there another way to upgrade the browsers?

Hi John,

Downloaded this yesterday and am using it now. It's good to be able to use up to date browsers such as Seamonkey 2.8 on a 4.2 series Puppy. Thanks for a good job of work.

Cheers,

CP .

Hello jamalexa,
In Firefox if you click "Help" to check the version installed, Firefox will update itself to firefox 11 easy! Opera is another story, I had trouble with later versions so a user would have to manually install a later version of Opera themselves.

The issue has been solved.
I checked the md5sum, which not matched though iso was not downloaded correctly. So downloaded again from the softpedia. checked the md5sum. This time, md5sum matched Smile. Now everything is working fine alongwith karamba. Smile
Hope this will helps someone.
Regards

Polished, as usual. Well done again, John!
For the record, now that Skype belongs to Beelzebub, perhaps it's time to decamp to PSIP, especially as smokey has given us such a detailed exposition of its use (www.smokey01.com/help/psip/psip-help.html?

So, is this the thread if you want/need support for Legacy OS4?

I'm having a buggar of a time getting 4 mini to boot on any of my machines. Did I get a bad iso? I get the splash screen and then it goes to copy to ram etc then when done it gives kernel panic message and then I have to dirty shutdown the machine....any ideas? I'm dying to try it....

Live pfix=ram on one of my old P3's. Notice the ram and swap usage at idle in the screenshot.
Probably run fine on a box with 256 Mb of ram once installed but it's pretty large when loading into ram.

I thought John usually advocated full installs for his TeenPup and Legacy OS series.....or am i mistaken?

Seems logical to me, especially as older machines often don't have a great deal of RAM and the iso isn't as small as the standard Puppys....i wouldn't bother trying to make a frugal, horses for courses..
