Subject description: since no youtube support
 

Alright,

So since I am not getting anywhere on finding a pet file for the youtube viewer, I am wondering if anyone has any idea how to get XBMC running?



I have a few .SFS files about it, but nowhere can I find how to nmount them and execute them.


It seems I am only capable of running .pet files.



I would like to run XBMC over kodi, but Ill take either so long as I get some youtube and other media services.

Puppy 2 Series Kernel 2.6.18


I suppose it makes it the following, based on the kernel version in use.


Code:

Release notes for Puppy Linux version 3.01

The live-CD iso file is 'puppy-3.01-seamonkey.iso' and is 98.6MB. There is also a "retro" live-CD, 'puppy-3.01retro-k2.6.18.1-seamonkey.iso' that is the same except uses an older kernel -- it is also smaller, at 94.8MB.

apologies, didn't see 3.01 in the heading

goingbuts (famous for pupngo - low resource stuff) had an early version running on series 4

might be worth a look

again not sure if it was available in a series 3 pup, before my time, but system, load on the fly

there was a change in the structure of the sfs so some stuff won't work

if when you click on the sfs file it expands you're golden, otherwise it's not compatible

not suggesting changing, providing info on stuff I've found with the caveat it's for a later system

dead in the respect that you're asking questions about a really old system - yeah....!

i think any signs of life would show others chiming in.


i appreciate your help, none the less.

thank you.



I am working on an old dell P4, internal video processing, 256Mb ram.


I have a windows laptop, but this old box is in my office and I would like to use it.


I experimented with the windows 2000 hacks and other low level windows installs previously, but the windows kernel even on older versions uses a lot of ram and video power, which this box does not have.

the laptop is for home media. i dont like dragging a laptop around to my office when i want to start writing. so I want to get this old box doing something.


i used DSL in the past on other low level machines, I really enjoy this legacyos though. its very nice and the only system which had proper ndiswrapper support out of the box for the dreaded wna3100 usb wifi device.


thats probably my main reason why i want to stick with this version.


ndiswrapper is a pain in the ass on other system. i used arch once and got it to work, but crappy ubuntu variants which i despise always had more error than success.

i suppose if the latest release of puppy has no problems with ndiswrapper and things like the youtube viewer i would gladly change up. seems to me that it should be almost identicial to this legacyos, as LOS is based off of puppy.

a p4 will happily run tahrpup, there is a dedicated build for kodi

https://archive.org/details/Puppy_Linux_Kodipup64

it's a 64 bit build but think is ok

Sailor Enceladus is running xenialpup on a pentium m 75mhz, you might be surprised with a newer build, like I say an eeepc @ 667mhz is quite capable

I am running a 32 bit processor.

32 bit architecture is different than 64 bit architecture and can never be compatible. That is to say a 64 bit OS will not be able to run on a 32 bit OS>





This machine is so old it doesnt even have an AGP slot.



That XBMC you linked installed. It has some dependencies I must fix now, but thats a big start, and I thank you for the help, man.

Seems only one person is having a communication problem. If you answered the question asked by some one trying to assist you, you may get better assistance. Later P4's were x86-64, so can utilize 64-bit OS's.

So if you give specific details of your system, it is easier for others to assist you,
