Manual frugal to ext2 SDcard, booting with grubb4dos, running on E732 laptop.

Very quick test - and all so far seems good.
ntfs read / write works. Did a copy / move / delete of random files.
All the basics seem to work as expected OTB. No obvious issues.

edit:

been using this for the last 5ish hours with no issues or unexpected surprises - looks and feels very good.
Loaded thunar - lots of general file twiddleing - SeaMonkey good on all usual sites and a few not so usual ones - all good.

Did a few installs to USB drives and sticks - all good.

Overall - from a casual user viewpoint - all good - very fast / responsive.
Luvly puppy.

Next job - try on 10yr old Acer laptop and report.

posting from Precice 5.7.1 test now - using the 10yr old Acer laptop. Very nice - considering the limited spec.

This puppy has one of the most intuitive setup procedures around - it walks you thru what needs to be done nicely.
Can’t go wrong - excellent.

Above is long discussion about ntfs-3g behavior concerning win8 ntfs partition.

It seems there is debate if the recent ntfs-3g version behavior is bug or not.

Everything seems fine so far except when running pmusic as user spot
it won't shut down, you have to restart x to quit pmusic.
Pmusic shuts down properly when running as root.

EDIT:peasy_dvd_player-1.1.pet works great.

EDIT: I couldn't download VLC until I updated ppm, then it downloaded
the latest version which was a surprise Smile

The problem with running Pmusic as user spot doesn't end with
restarting x, stream ripper keeps ripping even after doing that even
though Pmusic is no longer running.

If you're going to post test results in this forum, would you please post a link to where the iso can be found? Other people might be willing to do some testing. Smile

Just booted Precise 5.7.1retro on the 10yr old Acer laptop.

Everything about it is noticeably snappier in all aspects when compared with the “modern” 5.7.1 - for all the reasons that Barry mentions on his blog.

This really is the puppy of choice for resource challenged kit.

Manual frugal to ext3 partition, booting with grub4dos. Wifi via pcmcia card.

It is good that Opera is set as default html reader - fast.

Posting from Opera now - much faster than SeaMonkey on older kit.

Overall this would appear to be the “GT” puppy for those who appreciate fine build quality and long-term comfort.

Many thanks Barry for everything you do.
