For framebuffer support in Turbopup, I just borrowed the vmlinuz from Akita - the one from pupngo should work also.

Hi,

I got interested about Turbopup for using it with USB flash drive, hoping for a good performance. All USB flash drives i use are not fast, so performance is limited. Therefore, i decided to try this OS of yours : Turbopup.
What i found was a disappointing outdated browser. Everything else works fine, in the true spirit of Puppy, except for my browsing experience.
Maybe you could provide a Service Pack to update the browser. What i learned going on the web with Turbopup is that too much change happened on the web for it to be useful, at least for now, until there is a way to update any browser. Only the most basic sites are available. What i have got was : Sorry your browser is outdated. Please update your brower. Or some items were not available, such as download capabilities. Transmission too was having trouble. All in all, a relatively disappointing experience, for the lack of a good browser, but for apps not dependant on the web, they are usable.


I agree totally, the browser is just not up to it now and that is why sadly I don't feel I can use TurboPup for anything useful, despite my now being in a position when a lean and economical Puppy, such as TurboPup always was, would suit me down to the ground.

I will say one thing; I really liked the IceWM themes which came with TurboPup Extreme (Sand, Odilite etc.). Are they available separately?

Here are the themes from Turbopup Extreme..... Bluemat,BRdelite,Citrus,Odelite and Sand.
Just unzip and place the individual folders in /usr/share/icewm/themes/.

All i did was zip them up but the usual disclaimer applies....your mileage may vary,no warranty expressed or implied and all the other legal mumbo-jumbo. Smile

Just a further thought; installing Opera in TurboPup seems to be a good move. I don't know about later ones but Opera 11 works well in Turbo Extreme (I installed the 11.11 pet) and provides the functionality that you miss when you use Seamonkey with Javascript disabled.

That having been said, I have to say too that for those sites where Seamonkey sans Javascript is viable, I've come to greatly appreciate the fact that pages now load quickly and quietly. It's a reminder of how much junk web designers now see fit to load onto pages.

Subject description: useful tips
 

Hi,

Thanks for the tips about Opera.
I will try it for my surfing of the web. I tried QTweb, a very small web browser, but it didn't even start. Since i never used Opera, it didn't cross my mind to try it. I read somewhere Opera is still developed with old hardware and software in mind, whereas developers of Firefox do not.
Now Turboextreme will be a complete suite of apps, suited for a slow flashdrive.

You're welcome! Hope it works out for you.

Subject description: Flash boot
 

Perhaps this was already known, but on my Dell D620 an already super fast Tubo was even faster when I remove the HD and booted from the Flash drive.

Because it doesn't bother to search for files even when Puppy is running?

All I had to do was remove one screw and I can pull the HD out with my fingernail. To replace, just push it back in. (all this with the power off of course)

Hi dalmemail. Turbopup Xtreme is a very old pup now. There would be much better puppies available. Why don't you explain what hardware you have, and what software you want to run, and someone might point you to a pup that would be good for your needs. Do you want to run a modern browser?

But Turbopup Xtreme 1.0 use the 100% of the hardware and with a small changes in my opinion it will can to be an interesting OS for Pentiums I with 16-24 mb of RAM.

dalmemail. As much as I applaud your enthusiasm, you will struggle with such specifications. And you have up to 30 of these Pentium 1's? What is the CPU frequency in MHz?
