Subject description: Why not give it a visit
 

From a previous posting

Hello

I have been viewing the Puppy Power section on the forum and a suggestion that caught my eye there was the one about putting up a web site on Puppy linux. I have been using Puppy Linux since v4.0 exclusively for about two years now, and I am presently using v4.1.2 HD install, As it works very well for me I see no need to change to another version.

The idea I had for a web site was based on v4.1.2. Some of the programs downloaded from the forum sometimes fail to run on v412 because of missing dependencies which then require a search for the require dependency . As v412 this is my preferred version, my idea was to make programs plus their dependencies available in the one place for users of v412. Plus programs from the forum that run without any further dependencies.

I am well aware there is an abundance of Puppy Linux resources on the web and there may be no need for this. As this is only an idea at present, I thought I would run it by you guys and would be grateful if you would give me some feedback on whether it would be worthwhile implementing it.


Update 31st May 2011

New Puppy 412 dedicated website

The above posting has been like an itch I have been unable to scratch. So I have just went ahead and created a website based on the above posting.

It can be found here http://www.412collection.co.uk The list of packages is by no means comprehensive at present but it will grow. If there are any other users of Puppy-412 who have found a solution to a particular package and would like to share it with other users, pleas let me know through the forum or at http://www.412collection.co.uk

So if you guys could have a look at the new website and give me some feedback, it would be gratefully appreciated.

Cheers

tuxtoo

I see my book is still useful.

Looks good, neat and tidy.

Good job.

Very nice! Thanks for creating this. I will try some of these later, when I have more time. I know there are plenty more. If I can remember some of them, I will post which ones. Thanks, Rob

Hi Tuxtoo, good website, I like it, lots of useful stuff there.

I'm using 4.3.2, version3... the updated one, it flies on my old laptop, works like a charm, and I can run the latest Seamonkey without a hitch.

I actually prefer the 4x series puppies, I've tried about forty puppy versions... Very Happy addicted, I've lost count, but the 4xseries seems to have everything I want.

Thanks for this, I've downloaded some of the pets already.

Very Happy Hello,
I have a lot of stuff for the 4.12 series Puppy, as I built PAW on it, and Mediapup and Pupitup and Hansamben were based on it as well.
PAW is still available..
The Puppy Artists Workshop..

Username puppy
Password linux

4.12 was slackware based, like Slacko, and gslapt worked well...
I still have several 4.12 Puplets I use daily..
Good focus... 4.12 was really good...

I still regard Puppy 412 as likely the best modern version.
Some people like 2.14, 3.01, but I find 4.1.2 to be quite useful, I can't remember if it had built in Tcl/Tk like >=3.01

I kinda wonder if anyone has thought about a puplet using 412, but updating the components perchance. Then again, I don't know how much updating would need to be done for a good system.

puppyluvr and cthisbear

If it's alright with you both I will mirror your puplets on 412 collection.

However, my pentium 4 PC finally died and had to go the recycling centre and I bought a barebones pc base unit with no OS to replace it.

Therein lies the problem, the motherboard an Asus P8H6-MX R2.0 dual core job with the newer UEFI BIOS and I am unable to get Puppy-412 to boot from either CD or USB although Wary boots and installs to HD with no problems. I suspect the hardware might be too new for Puppy-412. Although not being an expert in these matters, I'm not entirely sure.

I do have a netbook that can run Puppy-412 ok but I just find it a bit small to use for extended periods. So unless I can get Puppy-412 to run on the new PC this may be the end of 412Collection . Just when I was getting into the swing of it and thoroughly enjoying my self with this project I may have to give up on it which is a pity.

May have to change the name to Wary Collection, don't know, lets see what the future brings.

Very Happy Hello,
I also have MANY pets compiled for, and on, 4.12.
I can post them to my meownplanet link if you like.
As for 4.12 booting on your new machine...
I have run PAW (4.12 based) on virtually everything..
IF your Wary is Frugall installed... (Dont Full install... Evil or Very Mad )
For me, just for S&G Laughing , do this.. (manual frugal install)
I have 26 frugal installs... Shocked

Boot Wary..
In /mnt/home:
Copy the Wary directory, and rename it 412.
Delete the contents.
Copy the 412 ISO contents into 412.
Got to /boot/grub and open menu.lst
Copy the Wary entry, and paste it below itself.
Change every Wary to 412. Including "Title"
Reboot....

Bookmarked Smile
Fabulous initiative of yours, tuxtoo - much appreciated!
I guess your Foxit Reader won't support user's saved annotations and highlights, as per all Foxit's Linux versions? If so, could I ask if you think about compiling a pdf viewer/editor that will? No big hurry, but would help turn old laptops into great tools for a mobile office.
Thanks again.

EDIT: oops! Panned down further in your apps and saw Xournal is already in your repository. Belay my request above - great work!

Does it simply not get to the bootloader, or does it by chance hang or panic during boot on 412?

I should look into the primary differences between Wary and 412. Perhaps Wary has a newer Kernel and that's what you need for your box, in that case one could see how the newer kernel may work with 412 (someones gonna operate on this puppy Twisted Evil)

Perhaps a mutant 412 with Wary's vmlinuz may do the trick.
