EasyPup version 2.2.7
This has been a fun diversion. It is a "classical Puppy", circa 2012-2013 (the era of Racy and wary 5.5), blended with features from EasyOS Buster-series, and all the packages as in EasyOS Buster-series.

There is an intro page here:

https://bkhome.org/linux/easypup-a-blend-of-classical-puppy-and-easyos.html

Blog announcement:

https://bkhome.org/news/202002/easypup-version-227-released.html

Download version 2.2.7:

http://distro.ibiblio.org/quirky/easypup/amd64/releases/buster/

The ISO is a hybrid-ISO, that may also be written to a USB-stick. It will boot on traditional-BIOS PCs as well modern UEFI PCs. Minimum specs are 64-bit CPU, 1024x768 screen, probably 1GB RAM will work, but will be happier with 2GB. Genuine PC only, no support for Chromebook or Macbook. The old PCMCIA and ISA buses are not supported.

Who will use it? I don't know, anyone who wants to I suppose. It has the Racy/Wary 5.5 flavour, with lots of new features and packages, so I guess anyone who likes a "classical pup" but updated.

The EasyOS thread is here:

http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=109958

...we have been discussing EasyPup in that thread, but it may cause confusion, hence I started this new thread.

Let me know if you discover anything that needs fixing...

2.2.7 EP. Nice! Polished. All working. GF video card > nouveau driver with xorgwiz&co. Would help for liveDVD use to have default sound up to 85-90%. Otherwise, much to like about it. Thanks.

I also installed to my Compaq Presario desktop. Nouveau driver works well.
Thanks

Edit:
The option to increase the size of the save file doesn't work.

To Billtoo,

Yes I found the same,
"the option to increase the size of the save file doesn't work"

An instruction link from the flashdrive, to new
storage files created on sda seems to be broken.

Have advised Barry in an email.
Regards.

Hi Barry,

Like what I see so far.

Would be nice to have a "create save directory" option instead savefile only. For me, I tend to prefer a save directory for flashdrive type installs. It makes backing up the save stuff more compact.

Oh, and the universal installer requires some extra program to install to ext4 partition.

ext3 worked well though.

PostPosted: Tue 04 Feb 2020, 20:12    Post subject: First impressions  

G'day BK,

Posting from Easy227 via OperaPortable. HP smallform desktop, vintage mid 2000's.

I had a number of start-up issues with deleted icons re-appearing and added desktop icons for some directories not re-loading.

I imagine this is because my desktop computer has about 28 partitions and I run most programs from a boot-mounted data partition to keep the savefile small. So a lot going on during start-up?

With repeated re-boots while adding more applications (as a collection of symlinks in a single sfs), start up is now more 'settled' with most changes being re-loaded.

I agree with poster Overdrive that a save directory is more convenient than the old-fashioned save-file - particularly if there is a re-size issue at the moment.

I also miss shinobar's excellent SFS-Load-on-the-Fly - easier than the BootManager and not restricted by the old '6 sfs or less' constraint.

And there's a pupsave-hotbackup application that I find very handy when tinkering/crashing Embarassed new Puppies which I could not find in this Easy.

I also miss the JWM desktop manager that allows easy re-positioning of the drive icons during booting. Easy227's default spacing is too wide to put all my partitions on a single row across the screen bottom (attached image of present pinboard - icons of non-running (yet?) apps grouped in centre-bottom of image - all other icons run their apps).

Printing and scanning is working (Epson-WF2510 networked inkjet) and after some teething troubles (see above), WiFi connection seems to be starting reliably.

So I've added Easy227 to my partition of 64-bit Frugals on this computer, and might try on my Samsung laptop when time permits.

Thanks for all your 'doings'.

David S.

Hi Barry,

2.2.7 installed frugally in an ext4 partition on a Thinkpad T420 seems to work well with limited testing. I appreciate the addition of the screen dimmer that also lets you choose a nightime color temp. 5600 seems bettter for default daytime over 6500, but that is of course a just one persons preference, or maybe my laptop lcd

Looking at distro-specs, I see possibilities on the horizon. Would a puppy with version control still be a puppy?

I am not running EasyPup right now, but you should be able to click on "sfsget" on the desktop and download it.

Bootmanager not working for me to load a sfs at boot. I have many sfs's at root dir. Clicking the button to add an sfs does nothing. Installed sfs_load by shinobar and loaded chromium sfs from sfsget. This chromium is not supported by google and I can't login at my account. I tried Google_Chrome-portable by MikeWalsh. I found a way to start it: use run-as-spot from ScPup64-20.01 and add "--no-sandbox" at last line in chrome-pup inside the portable Chrome.

Ty Barry!

This works well on my problematic Acer.
Acer hangs at shutdown/reboot with all other versions of pup and Easypup is mostly good to go.

I need to learn the container stuff as I've been away for a long time.

This will definitely replace my old Lucid5.28 as a daily OS.

Best,
Eric
