Good grief, man, what are you thinking of?! Who are your young friends? Hope they're not going to pester me for dosh?
I need to know three things:
- does it have streamtuner?
- does it fly?
- does it sing God Save the Queen?!
Later.

@izonic:

Its good to see your first post is a puplet release announcement. Smile

I downloaded and tried this in frugal. I must say it is very beautiful. I loved the looks and this is a keeper for me.

Just on one of the laptops, that has Nvidia, some effects are not smooth. But the same happens on this laptop with wNOP also.

Congratulations on your puplet.

That is impressive. It is also a large and ambitious puplet.
Do keep us informed. Good luck.

I gave vesta a spin and everything worked really well that I tried.It Looks very good.The only thing I didn't really like is ,its a bit on the fat side.IF you have Firefox, do you really need Opera too?

Hi;

I downloaded VP, burned the CD and booted it.

It came up as PCPuppyOS, a nice distro but not what I was expecting.

How come?

Very strange. Right iso, right size, verified burn.

Live cd boots as PCPuppyOS, installs as VestaPup.

I don't get the Compiz effects but I think the nVidia geforce 2 card isn't up to it.

OK I understand, when you boot it , it says something like loading puppy 3.01 or something like that , that is what vesta is based on .That is what he built it out of.

During setup after the video wizard runs you must pick xorg for compiz to work. After that set it to start compiz automatically and see if the nivida driver loads. If all that works when you get to the desktop press and hold crtl & alt while right clicking on the desktop, not a window just the desktop and see what happens...

Right click on the desktop brings up the start menu, with or without Ctrl-Alt

Not sure about nvidia, how do I tell?

open a terminal and enter ccsm see if it give you any error messages.

And its hold the left click at the same time with crtl & alt , dont just click and let go, grab it.

Have you ever ran compiz or beryl on any other versions of linux?Have you tried tigerpup or wNOPv2.0 ?

Hold or not, no response.

ccsm gives a page of text but no complaints. It mentions no sexy Python something but says it's optional

I've tried Tiger and wNOP but I think all I got was a shaky screen on wobbly.

Maybe I should just stay with Dingo or even 2.14

Also, some puppies wont reboot. They freeze on start kernel unless I stop the PC completely.

OK, it's something to do with my system.

I booted the CD on my laptop and it came up as VestaPup right away.

My desktop is a multiboot system and PCPuppyOS is one of the distros so somehow it's being booted along with Vesta.

Strange. Especially when it installs correctly.
