PC #1:

AMD Athlon 64 X2 5200+ (2.6 GHz x2)
2GB 800 MHz DDR2
8800GTS 640MB
250G SATA2 HDD
LG BD-RW/HDDVD-ROM/DVD+-RW/CD-RW uber combo drive
BenQ G2400W 24" 1920x1200 LCD

boots puppy using live-CD and the actual files on HDD (frugal install). Usually runs XP Pro, tho

PC #2:

AMD Sempron 2200+ 1.5 GHz
1.5GB DDR400 RAM (@333MHz)
ATI Rage Fury Pro 32MB
160GB IDE HDD
AG Neovo 19" 1280x1024 LCD
DVD+-RW/CD-RW
frugal install just like the previous one, usually runs XP home.

PC#3:

AMD Duron 750 MHz
256MB 133MHz SDRAM
ATI Radeon 9000 64MB
160GB IDE HDD
Acer 19" 1440x900 LCD
DVD+-RW/CD-RW
rarely used... frugal install, usually runs XP Home

lying around: Pentium 133 MHz, 32MB RAM, 2G + 0.5G HDDs, Avance Logic graphics with 0.5MB video RAM, Mozart Sound System sound card and win95 installed. Hasn't been booted in at least 5 years (I tried once but it booted to BIOS). Someday I want to install puppy on this one.

Versions of puppy that I use change often. Sometimes I just delete the savefiles and SFS files and make new ones... 2.02 and TeenPup are my favorite. 2.02 for boot time and TeenPup for the apps (not TP 2008, tho, half the apps don't work for me...). Recently I've mostly been using 4.1.
Most common reason for using Puppy is when I just need to get online and boot fast...

I've only had one 256MB USB stick that booted puppy. Have failed with all other pendrives and even a LaCie mobile disk hard drive. The LaCie is a project I really wanna make work some day.

Try using MBR Bin? on the universal installer.
Use Gparted to check the flags for pen drive usbs as
LBA and Boot.
Try a different USB port.

The Lacie probably only needs = Boot.
The latest GParted in Puppy 4.1.1 is great because it
allows you to select which drive...USB etc...
in a much easier manner.

Good luck & get back to us.
Edit this post as Solved if you get lucky.

Hey, funny to read this - I started this thread http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=35689 because I couldn't get my pen drive to boot. Your advice was spot on Chris. Worked for my imation nano usb pen and so my system is now HP Pavillion T240a with 2gig ram booting from a USB pen installation of Puppy 4.1.1. With Open Office 3, Opera and Firepup from ttuuxxx for web browsing. Thunderbird 2.16 (from a PET package) for email.

Dell Inspiron B130/1300

well. I could tell you, or use a picture describing it, or maybe both.

my puppy machine is a dell dimension e521
1 GB RAM
30GB Partition for Puppy
Wireless networking
1.8 GHz Sempron (i think it's 64-bit compatible)

i have an xp laptop
thinkpad e521
386 MB of RAm
1.13 Ghz pentium 3
20GB Hard disk
2GB partition saved for a future bobpup install.

and to sum it up with an image.


hope the site allows hotlinking. and no. I'm not female. I just chose that image because the two dogs remind me of my two computers. and because the girl in it is what i named the current bobpup after.

- J-Bob
(will unhotlink image at request)

Another change for me. I have Arch loaded on my hard drive. Arch proved to be a huge asset for me as I've learned more trying to figure out how to "make" a custom distro than the previous year and a half playing with live cds. So Arch resides on my hard drive but I still have a custom Puppy that I'm building and my other laptop that the cd drive doesn't work on is running Puppy. I also have a beautiful collection of Puppy live cd derivatives. It's quite large.

Subject description: running Dingo and some related puplets on this hardware
 

Hello community,

for everyone who's interested in a small system with low power consumption: I've made a compilation of Barry Kauler's distro for the IBM NetVista N2200 8363 and I think it's a very fine os. It fits on a >=128MB CF card or MD. You can get it instantly from the site

www.deckelquelle.de/public/projects/n2200/PuppyLinux/

Your NetVista needs therefor 128 or 256MB of additional ram. Reboot and enjoy!

My hardware:

IBM NetVista N2200 8363 EXX

Geode GX1 Processor, 233Mcps
and CS5530 companion chip -
256MB additional ram -
Seagate ST1 Microdrive 5GB -

der_odenwaelder

PS: I get one N2200 @ebay for €1,- yesterday... Very Happy

I run Puppy 4.1.2 Retro on a Libretto 100ct (micro laptop) over clocked to 200 Mhz, 32 RAM, 20 GB Seagate silent drive, and a Westell Wireless G card.

I also run on a Libretto (micro laptop) 70ct running 133Mz with 32 RAM , same HDD, with a Netgear MA401 (b) card.

Both the Librettos took some minor tweaking, swap drive, and resetting up xorg to get running smoothly , but they both are daily users. Puppy 4.1.2 more or less runs out of the box. I don't feel I have a hindered online experience using Opera on the Libretto's. Although I use Dillo 2 to read this forum at times. If I need to download a pet or the like from here I use Opera.

I have a Toshiba 430cdt (laptop) running at 133mhz and 32 RAM also. Like the Libretto's I get similar performance.

I have 4 Toshiba (laptop) 2250XCDS's running Puppy with 192 RAM , 600mhz processor. Once again because of the odd display it took some tweaking, but again works more or less out of the box.

I have too many other (desk top) computers to list off the top of my head. They range from Pentium 1 thru Duo-core. Only have one that runs Windows XP. The rest run some version of Linux or another. Puppy by far is my favorite distro and the one I am loyal to.

Though not a Linux guru, I know my way around Puppy and have fixed most issues on my own. I think the way it's set up is somewhat common sense when having to find what code is doing what. I play with almost all the puplets and have been since the puppy 3 series. I only signed on to the forums recently but have been a puppy fan for a few years now.

I run my Libretto100ct more than anything else in my personal and professional life hence my screen name. Smile
