PostPosted: Thu 13 Mar 2014, 08:09    Post subject:  Puppy linux applicaton  

Nowadays I ’m considering changing from XP to Linux. I use my computer for surfing the net, a little gaming (Assault Cube), and game development (Visual Studio 2010, XNA).
My computer is quite old (Toshiba L30, CeleronM440, 1gb ram, Xpress200M video card), so I need a Lightweight Linux distro.
As far as I read the Puppy linux doesn’t need high hardware requirement and it has several application for everyday uses.
But I would like to ask, if I want to use not installed application (such as blender, Jmonkey, MonoXNA) could I use with Puppy Linux? (for example the MonoXna site talk about only ubuntu installation and not talk other distro installation)

MonoXNA site is in some asian language I can't read but if it runs on linux it could run on puppy linux too (puppy specific .pet packages might not be available but puppy can install packages from other distributions and some puppies are built to be compatible with ubuntu packages, or it could be compiled fom source code and installed that way)

I run AssaultCube on puppy so that runs for sure (My system is 1.25 RAM 1.8 Ghz AMD Sempron and Radeon 9250) Smile
I also ran blender before but I can't really use it so was just testing but there are blender packages on this forum probably.
jMonkey is java-based? Then I guess all you need is java package which is available for puppy.

Thank you for your quick answer.
If I understand correctly,if an application can run on linux, probably run on Puppy?

Yes, since puppy afterall IS GNU/Linux
But since puppy is lightweight distro, depending on app you might need additional dependencies to get it going.
Download and try, puppy iso is small and loads to RAM, you don't need to install it on hard drive to test how it's working and get to know it.

I'll try it on. But I think the usability can't be learn without installation. I'll post my experiences.
