roky, this is one very rare case where I'd want to get in touch with gcmartin. He'd probably be able to give you something vaguely resembling directions... probably.

Well. Cool. I've changed kernels to get the SD card slot reader working. Touchscreen still works.

Code:
$ uname -r
3.18-5.dmz.1-liquorix-686-pae


This is not a biggie per se. I can fly on a Ubuntu or Debian or Arch minimal install and go from there. I am not hip on building up from a minimal Puppy install though.

I am usually install and tweak and go on Puppy with just minor tweaks at that.

This is the AntiX one I have dialed in pretty good.

I have a feeling though that touchscreen>32 bit> and Puppy Linux might not be in the cards for me. Carolina Vangaurd looks promising. But ram usage on these I try and keep
at a minimum. So Fluxbox or JWM would be my druthers. E17 would be a option also and I am comfy in Icewm also.

Hey, I've been thinking of seeing how Vanguard would run on my netbook... since the specs are dang similar, would it help you any if I did so and reported results?

No need to. I can download and run off SD card if I wish with a save while doing the unetbootin shuffle. Install grub4dos and blow away unnetbootin syslinux boot loader
on mbr of the SD card and I am off to the races.

Just bored while this cold front here blows through. So the shop is slow today.

I got a feeling I'll need a new kernel although the touch screen on this rig is not the latest or greatest. Being a 2009 machine and all.

I will see what I will see I guess. If Vangaurd works OK for me. I'll be sure and post about it.

PostPosted: Wed 11 Nov 2015, 13:00    Post subject: How Do I Know Which Puppy to Adopt?
Subject description: Choosing a Puppy
 

There are so many now! I'm sure they're all great, but for a newbie it's hard to know which Puppy I should try first. It would be awesome if someone wrote a little blog post or sticky post on Which Puppy to Adopt.

I have a really old Dell Dimension with 512 RAM and some kinda Celeron processor I don't know how fast. It's older than me, a hand-me-down from my parents when they got their new computer. It used to run Windows XP but I have LXLE on it now which is pretty fast. I even got my parents to dual-boot it because they love LXLE too!

But I tried Puppy for the first time today and it's like, Whoa, warp speed! Really cool. I chose Tahr 6.0.2 CE because it's based on Ubuntu so I thought it would be somewhat familiar. I wanted something I can show at the computer club at school that would be portable and fast. But there are so many other choices that I bet are just as awesome.

Maybe it could be categorized by:

    hardware requirements / compatibility

    what they are built from Slackware, Ubuntu, Debian, whatever

    default applications (Libreoffice or Abiword, etc., or Firefox or Seamonkey or whatever)

    Availability and size of repositories

    whatever other categories


Just a little something to help a newbie choose? Some kind of guide would be super helpful for people adopting their first Puppy! Thanks

Tahr 6.0.2 CE is the right choice, for your DELL, Sweet Baby Jamie .
Perhaps big enough for 512MB RAM...

@ jamie

I have mirrored ALL the puppies I could find, most major distributions I have also mirrored the repository where I could

the repositories are not as complete as I would like but there is a lot there

go here: http://archive.org/details/puppylinux and you will find over 3500 pups and other goodies too

on the right of the page you will see a search box, type in slackware, debian etc and you will get some options, this is just a keyword search and required me to add that to the puppy page, I'm sure I have missed some though

I used to run slacko 5.3.3 on everything I had as it worked on everything I put it on and really well, my current go to is tahr (64), they will all have a slightly different personality so play with a few

if you have the recommended 'frugal' install you can dual boot in seconds

create a suitable folder, click on the downloaded ISO to expand it, copy all the files into the new folder, click the ISO file again to unmount it, run grub4dos and you're done

add more puppies and play!!

I have used puppy exclusively for around 8yrs now and probably boot windows twice a year and do not miss it, there are much prettier linux installs but nothing so simple and FAST as puppy

enjoy dude!!

Welcome to that very quirky little number. Mike Walsh and myself have the Dell 1100 - "the Dell from Hell!" It has some very anachronistic (lack of) capabilities! Twisted Evil
If only all computers were the same - but, they are not. Even the model dropped directly off the assembly line may contain a different chipset from the previous batch. This continues with sub-assemblies; video, sound, Internet, etc ; and you are working with a very different beast from the previous incarnation of only a few weeks ago. Add any extras - such as specialist video cards, more sound systems - anything, then it becomes very hard to quantify what will work for one computer system, then say it will work for another.

PostPosted: Wed 06 Apr 2016, 04:56    Post subject: slacko 5.3.3  

I list 380 Puppies from the forum, but yesterday in sourceforge.net, i saw a lot of puppies unknown here.
Newbies, first, choose official ones, and small as Thin slacko 5.3.3, Racy 5.3, or Puppy 4.3.1
You shall test bigger in a second step...

3500 Exclamation "you will find over 3500 pups and other goodies too "

380+ puppies...?
There can be some puppies created on very similar thoughts!
Guess less than approximately quarter of them is active and not few of them is discontinued.

Subject description: The show goes on, if people make it continue..
 

it's just like songs. Singers create new songs, but people like to listen old ones. My juke box now has 160 puppies active.
Valiant Puppy, Xfce, never has been replaced, and is still the best, in spite of Jejy69 stop to be a singer. ISOs are available for download, and users would help if any trouble. 'discontinued', what does that mean, if people keep it active ?
Barry Kauler retired from Puppy Linux, and puppy is still alive.

Should not this sticky thread have a update on the first post by somebody who know the most important info of derivates, at least a link to a page?

PostPosted: Sun 04 Sep 2016, 16:00    Post subject: WHICH Puppy derivatives  

I have narrowed my favorites down to two, because they both recognize my home wifi (using Jasper) from a variety of different laptop and netbook wifi cards, and use lightweight browsers "out of the box":
LxPup Tahr-15.12.1-pae (LXDE, pale moon web browser)
xslacko-slim-082816 (stripped down XFCE, VERY lightweight, yet still surprisingly functional; Midori web browser)
