Installed onto 3 old laptops....

IBM Thinkpad 600:
Pentium II (Deschutes)
Max Speed: 266 MHz
Current Speed of Core
Memory Allocation:
Total RAM: 141 MB
VGA compatible controller:
+ Neomagic Corporation NM2160 [MagicGraph 128XD] (rev 01)
+ Video RAM: 16M

Boots, runs (incredibly slowly - but look at amount of ram - thrashing swap) but browser bombs as it needs SSE2 (probably)

HP-550:
Intel(R) Celeron(R) CPU 550 @ 2.00GHz
Max Speed: 2000 MHz
Memory Allocation:
Total RAM: 2005 MB
VGA controller [0300]: Intel Corporation Mobile GME965/GLE960 Integrated Graphics Controller [8086:2a12] (rev 0c)
+ Video RAM: 256M

Boots and runs quite well.

Samsung-NC110:
Intel(R) Atom(TM) CPU N570 @ 1.66GHz
Max Speed: 3300 MHz
Memory Allocation:
Total RAM: 2003 MB
VGA controller [0300]: Intel Corporation Atom Processor D4xx/D5xx/N4xx/N5xx Integrated Graphics Controller [8086:a011] (rev 02)
+ Video RAM: 256M

Also boots and runs quite well

Asus X551:
Intel(R) Celeron(R) CPU N2840 @ 2.16GHz
Max Speed: 2400 MHz
Memory Allocation:
Total RAM: 3834 MB
VGA controller [0300]: Intel Corporation Atom Processor Z36xxx/Z37xxx Series Graphics & Display [8086:0f31] (rev 0e)
• Video RAM: 256M

Boots and runs fine

So I would say that 1.66GHz single core with SSE2 instruction set and 1GB of RAM is probably the minimum specs. unless anyone reports differently....

Yah; I have to agree with perdido. This Puppy is definitely ready to take over the 'flagship' spot.....and Bob's right, too. You detail me one OS that went 'public' without one single bug in it.....and I'll stand you a beer or three at your favourite watering-hole. There's no such thing as perfection in software, no matter how much of its building may be automated.....because in the long run, it was still written by humans at some point....

...and we are fallible.

With regard to the 32-bit vs 64-bit debate.....what difference does that make? I've been running Puppies on a 64-bit machine ever since I started with them 4½ years ago, and my characterisation, quite simply, is this:-

a.) That 32-bit Pups run blazingly fast.

b.) That 64-bit Pups run no faster, but just seem smoother, somehow.....it's kinda hard to explain. (Maybe it's only my specific perceptions that give this impression; I can't say.)

My own interpretation of the mechanics of this are quite simple; that because of the way Puppy runs (in RAM for the duration of a session), a lot of the subjective, 'perceived' operating speed is going to be down to the latencies & access times of whatever generation of RAM your system uses (DDR1, DDR2, DDR3, whatever). Naturally, CPU generation, motherboard design factors, and quantity of RAM, will also contribute.....but the native characteristics of the RAM itself must have a considerable impact on the overall 'experience'.

How many 'Puppians' actually think that far into it? Laughing Laughing

Most of my favourites are 32-bit, of course, since Puppy's past is full of absolute gems; many of which are still perfectly usable as 'daily drivers'.

But definitely; Upup BB is ready for 'prime time'. Go for it, Peter!

At the risk of being the noob with a chip on their shoulder, I have to say that I think the current release is actually a step back from Tahr and Xenial pups in overall usability.

I had a long rant, but I think I can condense it to a few points which are slightly less rambling:
1) There's a lot of unlabelled buttons and icons in the interface, which is bad for discoverability. Some things (like the new-default, non-traditional Puppy desktop, with its unlabelled dock) can be changed (although they shouldn't have to be). Others (like the buttons in the fringes of PupControl) can't be.
2) When it comes to the interface, theming, etc., there's a lot of buttons that send you to the same places as are linked to in another (apparently unrelated) configuration panel, without it being clear that that's where you're going. What's worse, it's possible and very common to then have buttons that go right back to where you came from, so you can very well end up with the same tool in multiple windows. Anything involving pTheme, as well as the Theme Switcher, are good examples of this.
3) Along the same line, there seem to be a lot of configuration tools, options and buttons in various parts of the interface that do or control the same things when just one tool would suffice (or maybe two -- provided that there's one clearly labelled "Quick" setup that actually is easier to use, and then the real, full config tool, with advanced options that aren't available in the other).
4) Desktop Icons arrangement names need some work. For example, it isn't clear exactly what "Minimal" and "Bin" are. What's worse, continuing in the same theme as the last two points, I think there is actually a control panel somewhere else that controls the same thing, offers more options, and has full text descriptions, but it's buried in something like the Event Manager that isn't obviously related to the desktop, and is hard to find if you don't know right where it is.
5) No Quickpet is not good for quick setup.
6) SFS tools seem a bit hit and miss. The package manager and universal installer in the dock's second menu option for the SFS manager didn't do anything when I tried it (admittedly, in VirtualBox). Based on the package manager, though, and the fact that I installed a SFS manager from a Pup repo, I'm not sure it's even built in. If that's so, having a menu option for something that's not included in the base system seems kind of misleading.
7) Not sure if this is a problem with the SFS manager or UPupBB, but I might as well hit on it while I'm here. The SFS manager wants "Puppy to be installed" before it runs. That's a weak error message. Installed to what? If they mean that they need a save file, that's one thing. That said, though, I'm not sure why it should simply refuse to run. If nothing it does gets saved, that's my problem.
Cool I guess this is probably Joe's 'fault', not yours, but I do miss the Motif option and non-gradient window themes. Figured I'd throw that in somewhere. Wink

If you would like more detail or explanation of these complaints, I'd be happy to provide them. Puppy is in my opinion the greatest distro for flash drives. In fact, if Puppy doesn't work out over the long haul, I'm not sure there's anywhere else to go. And I'm not keen on staying with Xenial Ubuntu as a base forever and running increasingly old software just because I don't like new themes/the interface/whatever.

@James Gryphon
I think you are certainly not a noob.
I had very similar remarks when trying out UpupBB, but did not manage to formulate them. I can especially second your last 3 remarks about the missing quickpet and the sfs.
BTW, it's been a while now I've tried Bionic Puppy, so I do not know about the latest fixes.

As a relative newcomer to the forum, you may not be aware that while Puppy is a team effort, releases are put together by individuals who have the time, energy and ambition for such a project. Over the years several people have done so, but it is exhausting and at times frustrating in that it is impossible to satisfy everybody's wishes. Not that yours are unreasonable but I think PeeBee deserves a great deal of praise and thanks for putting together such a fine and, compared to some other releases, bug free Puppy.

I think it is a worthwhile learning endeavor for any Puppy user to have a go at building a Pup using WoofCE in which you can incorporate any changes you wish. Puppy can also be modified using Remaster although WoofCE does a cleaner job with less chance of including unwanted changes.

I haven't bothered building a custom BionicPup because I find PeeBee's version is working extremely well for me. Possibly the best Puppy I've ever used. But then I've been using Puppy quite a while and don't have the perspective of a newcomer in terms of figuring things out.

Good Luck and Enjoy, J

@peebee
Thanks for being so considerate to offer a ndiswrapper with upupbb. I really appreciate the effort. Unfortunately (for me), it isn't working.

I installed the devx although I don't think it is needed.

I installed the pet.
--ndiswrapper appeard in Uninstal in PPM
--ndiswrapper.ko appears at /lib/modules/4.9.96-lxpup-32-pae/misc/ as expected

lsusb returns:
--Bus 001 Device 004: ID 0846:9020 NetGear, Inc. WNA3100(v1) Wireless-N 300 [Broadcom BCM43231]

None of the wizards (Simple Network Setup, Frisbee or Network Wizard) installed via Menu->Setup->Internet Connection Wizard recognizes a wanlo or any other wireless.

When I try to install my Windows driver with Network Wizard, this is the final screen shown..
install_final_shot.png

Screenshot various_screens.png shows various screens when trying to install.

Any ideas?

Can you do:
Code:
depmod -a
modprobe ndiswrapper

after installing the pet?

What does dmesg and lsmod show? Has ndiswrapper been loaded?

Does your driver work in other pups?

There have been 403 downloads of the pet - but 0 reports its not working....

@peebee
Apologies for the delay in answering,
You asked:

Of course, I'm the one who needs it to work. Smile
Code:

depmod -a
modprobe ndiswrapper


Quote:

As stated, the pet is already installed. I have uninstalled and reinstalled it now.

There was no output on invoking the depmod and modprobe commands.
Code:
# depmod -a
# modprobe ndiswrapper

This is a partial output from dmesg. Note 2 sections: one I recast in red, the other in blue.
The red section references sr1. The system is booted from a SanDisk flash drive which has sr1 as a ROM drive. I don't know if the error noted in the section contributes to the ndiswrapper failure, but I have included it just in case.

The blue section seems to be all ndiswrapper related.

I have the complete dump of dmesg if you want it.

Has ndiswrapper been loaded?

I assume not, but really don't know how to check.

Does your driver work in other pups?

Yes! I recall some Slacko versions, but more recently, tahr-6.0, 6.0.2 (currently using), tahr-6.0.5 and tahr-6.0.6.

There have been 403 downloads of the pet - but 0 reports its not working...

Doesn't mean it is being used, PB. And looked at from the opposite perspective, there are 0 reports of success. The only persons I recall claiming to use ndiswrapper are OscarTalks and rcrsn51. And I don't think either of the two use it regularly anymore.

Some time ago while researching ndiswrapper, I saw reference in another forum to tainted kernel - see blue section above. I'll see if I can find it.
[EDIT]
code does not allow for colours within. Sorry!

Hi @BKJ

Maybe there is now native Linux support for your wifi and that driver is claiming your device stopping ndiswrapper using it? (Although I don't see anything likely in the lsmod output). See screenie from net-wiz....

ndiswrapper is installing correctly as shown by the lsmod output - the kernel taints are just warnings that "something uncertified" is being added to the kernel and can be ignored.

Cheers PB

I used to own the same Netgear adapter as B.K. I can't remember the last time I saw it work with ndiswrapper - possibly with an early 4-series kernel.

@perdido: Check the date at the bottom of that web page.

Thanks for the response, perdido, but as rcrsn51 notes it's old and I got a 404 when I tried to download the driver.

Did not see a "use by" date, figured it could be useful info.

I thought you might be interested in some of the terminal commands farther down the page, not the driver.
Code:
bcmwlhigh5 works under ndiswrapper. However driver may not be loaded by default or matching with device may be wrong. If this is the case, when you list installed drivers, you will see an output similar to this:

felmas@fachoper:~$ ndiswrapper -l
bcmwlhigh5: driver installed

You won't see this line after above output:

device (0846:9020) present

To fix it, you should run:

felmas@fachoper:~$ ndiswrapper -a 0846:9020 bcmwlhigh5

Moreover, driver can require some configuration.

felmas@fachoper:~$ dmesg -c
Jan 15 17:12:28 fachoper kernel: [67654.005971] ndiswrapper (iw_set_freq:437): setting configuration failed (00010003)

In my case, I checked correct values in another machine that is already connected.

felmas@veteran:~$ iwconfig
lo    no wireless extensions.

eth0  no wireless extensions.
