Dear Puppy developers,

Since long I was searching for a linux distro which have no problem with old hardware. There is DSL but I am not satisfied.
I am looking for a system which can at least provide a GUI not bloated but just useful.

I am happy that Puppy has the features which I have been searching for.
I am very much interested to make a distro based on my own concept. I am not in favor of a shiny Desktop oriented one but a little monster which will have all the packages which are required for my job and interest. That's why I like to know how Puppy works from an USB and how can I make such a Puppy like distro ?

Could any one please suggest ?

with best regards

Welcome Joydeep to the puppy forums. Smile I dunno what the alien is saying about spam, Confused but I think something is bugging him Sad..yet again. Rolling Eyes

Only thing I can figure is you left a link with your note & it's ok for alien to do that (visit the fringe) but not you. Sad

I've not run puppy from usb but i'm sure more helpful info will be forthcoming from others. Smile Easiest way to try out pup is burn a pup iso, boot the 'pute with the cd & see puppy run..

No doubt an ton of info will come up with a search in this forum of usb install. When searching, a word has to have at least 4 characters so if it doesn't you add * so for example usb* install

What type 'pute u have?

I took a look; I don't understand what it is that you want or need that you can't find now. More details? jf

sounds like a remaster.

@Joydeep. Easiest way to try out pup is to burn a pup iso http://www.puppylinux.org/user/downloads.php?cat_id=1 to cd, boot the pute with the cd & try it out (running live cd). Think your 'pute has 48 megs ram & could be a problem. If so, a swap partition might do the trick.

Thanks to all responders,

sorry for double posting Sad

I am interested to make a linux distro with stenographic tool, tools to rescue a damaged system, backup tools etc.... The best way I think is to make a distro which can start from usb stick and which can also run fast with old hardware too.

I have already checked a lot of different distro but all my dreams seem to become true with puppy. I am also interested to built a PIC microchip lab based on puppy.
I have found to build customized puppy with unleashed. More over micro puppy has cut down the xwindow by providing xvesa rather than x.org. I think micropuppy can be my staring point. I have also tried the 8MB puppy; the foundation of micro puppy but the download page is not accessible any more Sad

thanks a lot
