Sub_title: can't find which version
 

A neighbour who is a member of a loco here in Phoenix installed my puppy. I really like it but whatever version it is, it tends to be rather fragile. Kind of wonky. It's okay for a while, then not, okay then not. Laughing

It's on an older but still serviceable HP, He also installed ubuntu. We tried mint, but the machine didn't have enough horsepower. It is an HP Pavillion dv8000

any answers, my neighbor has been very very generous with this time. Don't want to pester him every time i develop an issue,

Want a version that is a little more stable. However Todd installed lots of stuff that runs reasonably well. It might be 5.2.8 but i'm not sure!!

HOW DO I FIND THE VERSION of Puppy?? (caps only for visibility) this turned into a bit of a ramble, sorry

Sub_title: try looking at /etc/DISTRO_SPECS
 

G'day,

There should be a comprehensive listing of version details in a text file called "DISTRO_SPECS" in the /etc directory.

Let us know if this is not what you want to know.

went looking for DISTRO_SPECS in /etc directory, Can't seem to get the format right!! It's second nature to you guys i'm sure, but it is greek to me. What am i doing wrong??

I've written code, but it is G and M code for machine tools, This stuff is completely foreign to me, sorry!!!

Open the console (terminal) and type in: uname -a. The response should tell you the Puppy version, followed by the kernel version.
Then you should type in: exit
This will close the terminal in the best-practice way.
