Lin Win Frugal install Puppy 4.00, Kernel 2.6.21.7, Only other things installed are a Java pet and the Madwifi pet. Acer 5620 Laptop, Pentium Dualcore 1.86 GHz, 3 GB RAM. Very happy my first experience with Puppy and with Linux. Gtkam doesn't work with my HP Photosmart 715 even though it's listed. It isn't even seen as a drive in Pmount. Seamonkey crashes while trying to upload a small jpeg to Photobucket. When I select reboot computer from the menu on the restart the laptop hangs during post. This doesn't happen on the fresh install. Too many calculators. Overall I'm very happy with the experience, thanks for your efforts. Very Happy
Puppy is lean and mean, I love it.

Edit: I'm actually triplebooting Vista/XP and Puppy. Light blue Function keys don't work with Puppy, work in XP/Vista. Not a dealbreaker, but it'd be nice if they functioned. I downloaded something with Petget and it wouldn't uninstall, I believe it was the Java package. Jar files/packages don't open with Java, have to manually set the run action.

3. Having problems with PNethood (I didn't realize there is a version .063--been away, catching up), so I downloaded the old SMB mounter LinNeighborhood through the PET manager. After getting LinNeighborhood's dependency gtk-1.2.10 (and its own dependencies), LinNeighborhood works OK in both k2.6.25 and k2.6.21.7--except for the conversion error message shown here which appears when a drive on the Win98 machine is mounted in Puppy. Despite the error message, LinNeighborhood does work OK on both kernels.
PNethood displays a similar horde of conversion-error messages when started from the command line.

@SHS
These iconv error messages have been present in many recent puppy versions. They don't seem to get in the way of it working for me. It would be good if you could reply to this http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=217786#217786

> iconv error messages

In my stumbling I've found that there is libiconv and the kernel iconv option. Some of the big app releases seem to shy away from the libiconv in favor of using the the kernel system. There are many perils in using libiconv. A couple builds can be fixed by using the -noiconv option (or something like that). Just not building it is probably the bet for anyone.

Lin Win Frugal install Puppy 4.00, Kernel 2.6.21.7. Hotpup Drive mount won't give me write privileges to harddrives other then the system drive. I have to mount the drive with Pmount. Kind of awkward, as I'm setting up an office PC for my somewhat computer illiterate girlfriend. Manually having to mount the drives sucks.

If I remember well, advice has been given to use pfind or to install the latest Dingo version (now at 407)
The 400 has a problem and I think it will not be corrected for this version.

I try it and let you know how it went. Everything else is working so well I don't want to mess it up. But I've backed up my Pupsave and will give it a go.

Update: I tried out 4.1 Alpha7, fixed the problem. Also fixed a problem I had with choosing reboot from the menu. Unfortunately wifi and ethernet don't work now. I posted the details on Barry's blog.

[BUG report]
after setting up a connection with pppoe_gui,
/etc/resolv.conf becomes a symlink to /etc/ppp/resolv.conf, itself a symlink to /etc/resolv.conf
thus it becomes impossible to connect to internet

I dson't know whether this is a bug, but I'm getting lockups when I've got about 155 MB of RAM in use and two or three apps running (such as SeaMonkey and Osmo). Nothing will move, not even the mouse, and the caps key won't work. The only cure is to turn the computer off and start again.

There's a lot to like about Dingo though, the applications at last have a consistent look due to the GTK2 toolkit and it's possible to use the latest versions of apps such as Firefox 3.0.4.
