Hi everybody,

here you can find my first custom Puppy version. I called it GioveLUG (my LUG's name) Educational and it is studied for the kids.

http://puptrix.org/isos/giovelug-readme.txt
http://puptrix.org/isos/giovelug100_edu_eng.iso
http://puptrix.org/isos/giovelug100_edu_eng.iso.md5.txt
Into the hard disk installation there is a bug I found but I did not verify if remastering the iso I published it is gone away. Anyway, if you have some problems to boot it from HD installation following some instructions to fix it:

1. Boot again from the live cd
2. Mount with MUT your hd partition where you installed GioveLUG Edu
3. Locate /etc/rc.sysinit and comment out the row 54 putting a # as first char.
4. Reboot and it has to be fixed.

Bye

p.s. Thanks to MU helped me to publish this distro in Puptrix.

I downloaded your version immediatly when it became available. Unfortunately this came up with a message "bummer etc etc"
I cannot remember the full sequence because the Forum has been
so dreadful lately - which is sad to see.

Anyway I tried different booting options, commands
and even pressed enter which took me to select Xvese etc,
which no matter what resulted in an endless loop.
I have visited some schools in my area, where their
computer administrators want the freedom from not having to
continually repair the school network from their own students,
let alone other outside factors. So the simplicity of Puppy appeals
to them and your distro may have been very useful in this regard.

I too met with the same response.
"Creating unionfs on (/initd) pup-new (to become '/')...
Bummer could not run 'etc/init.d/rcS:no such file or directory.
Please press Enter to activate console.
-sh-3.00#

Nothing seemed to work.
I also tried a clean boot from a standard Puppy 2.11,copying over the relevent files as a 'poor-man's' install, then rebooting Giovelug100_edu_eng. A whole screen of different coloured text giving many errors rushed by. It was far too quick to see most of it.

It's a shame. A self-contained CD would be of enormous use for educational establishments. Especially so where many of the educators have little or no knowledge other than in a MS environment, and are paranoid about 'viruses' touching the hard drive, etc.

I didn't understand this problem but today I remastered starting from a live rather than a full hd installation and now it seems to work. I published again at the link above, I mean ftp.sarvage.net not puptrix which I still have to update so, please, download it again with the new md5 file and test it. Puptrix will be ok tomorrow.

In my tests it now is working again.

If slapshot has burned and booted it successfully before upload, then it must be a bad upload. Kindly check your md5sum.

Sorry I am still unable to test it. Embarassed

@Raffy
I burned and booted a sligthly different version of Giovelug edu (it lacks just of background desktop images) and from this start point I made a new remastering but this time without making a full hd installation which, for what I can remember, it was the real difference.

So I think it was my fault, my apologizes for this. Now on your ftp servers there is the new version that I burned and booted on 64, 128 and 256 mb ram pc and it seems ok.
Mark will have to download from the same server and will public it on Puptrix I believe in 1 or 2 days.

Thanks.

Congratulations!

Your new Giovelug edu edition works a treat. I've been running it from my old Pentium 333 with 256 megs of ram. It's very smooth. Tux is great fun. So too is gcompris - although I've discovered that I'm useless at navigating yellow submarines. As for my maths, the less said about that the better! Laughing
This is ideal for many old machines, which can be easily utilized for small 'self-help' education groups.
Just one thing, have you tried it on a laptop? On my Compaq Evo N600c ,Tux had a problem with screen resolution - creating barring with a displaced image which eventually locked up. I suspect there's an issue with the video drivers.
Other than that, this is an excellent way to help the young master new skills.

It works beautifully under qemu on my Dell D400 (WinXP host). I'm going to install it as a Christmas present for my 4yo daughter on a really old Compaq laptop, so thank you very kindly for creating this custom edition!

Thank you guys, I'm very happy you like it and it is going now. Smile

@Fossil:
I tried it on Maxdata nb and on a Compaq Presario 716 ea and it works well. Give a chance to XVesa Xserver, I tried it with 1024x768x24 and it works fine. I had a problem with GCompris under XOrg on Presario NB but with XVesa it is ok.

@nairobi:
I hope it will be a nice Christmas present for your daughter Smile

I would like to extend it with TuxPaint and ChildsPlay but I have to look at final dimensions because first aim of this distro is for old pc we donate to churches, school, and disadvantaged categories. Stay tuned Wink
