Smile Hi all,

I am in need to know the possible ways to install a driver. What i have seen is we have to the compile the drivers to use it which needs some knowledge on commands and scripts. But what i need is first day user also could be able to use these drivers. That just like a copy-paste method. Rolling Eyes

The latest release of Puppy is 2.13, and 2.14 beta is now being tried. These contain a driver sfs, which should include many drivers.

If a driver is missing, please post with the device name and model number so other people can help you with it.

Only the drivers chosen automatically at start-up are loaded to memory, and the driver sfs is kept in the hard disk (if you have one) or on the CD.
