Sub_title: pupeee 4.2 with ASUS eee 4G 701 and 1000HA KVM Switch Large Monitor
 

Tested pupeee4.2 on two ASUS eee 701 4G, and a 1000HA, all work great, wifi to secure DLink WPA2 TKIP detects and connects fine on all three computers, all will auto reconnect on boot. every time. Flash video, and audio works fine.

This message is being input from my ASUS eee 701 4G with pupeee4.2 on a USB flash drive. Another interesting note is that I plugged the eee 701 into a USB keyboard and mouse adapter and into a 8 channel KVM switch and large screen monitor for this message. The all work great out of the box too !!!

Can this also be installed to be booted from an USB drive?
If so, could someone explain the process of how to do it?
Thanks,
froggie

Sub_title: wifi procedure 900 4g/8g XP running Pupeee
 

Hi all, i had a bit of trouble getting to reply to a particular thread but here goes. I had some issues trying to connect to wifi but the following seems to work every time and now it seems pupeee has saved the instructions set and works every time in Australia without having to go through the scan and log procedure each time:

1. Network wizard.
2. select ath0.
3. scan.
4. select wpa/tkip
5. enter the name of your wifi (profile name and ESSID).
enter the passkey.
6. then save.
7. use this profile (which will then try and connect to your wifi net).
8. If you get a successful connect msg and are using DHCP then select DHCP and it will then attempt to config DHCP. If successfull it will ask if you want to save it for future sessions.
9. it will take a few seconds then select done.

This may be old hat for some but for me it took some time as it is not intuitive and it now woks every time for me.

you can use the universal installer to install it to the usb drive. or you can send the iso to the usb drive with unetbootin.

as i said the puppy network manager works just fine.

Many thanks to you, Luther and Pupeee 4.2
and all the guys involved
Luther did you provide a second updated Pupeee 4.2?
I have Puppy 4.2 on my eeepc connected to the web
First time since Tigerpup

The trick may be even though I have wpa2
use the wpa option described

The USB keydrive will be going to a friend of a friend
in Ireland - but I will be creating another (USB drive and friend of Puppy)

Thanks once again Smile

Sub_title: ASUS eee use of WPA2 TKIP and WPA2 AES Security
 

Am curious about what others have experienced using Pupeee 4.2 or other recent releases on the ASUS eee PC with wireless WPA2 TKIP and WPA2 AES security.

My experience with Dlink and Airlink wireless routers is that it is consistently connecting and reconnects on boot just fine with Pupeee 4.2 as well as previous release 4.1.2. However, did notice that I had to install the Netwizard of Apr 1st to detect the Airlink wireless router. Several of my other USB wifi adapters will not work with WPA2 AES but does work with WPA2 TKIP..

I want to transfer from USB thumb drive to SD card
Which option do I select for this?
I think Barry produced some notes on this for the Classmate netbook, a while ago - not for Pupeee specifically

Anyone done this / able to advise?

Sub_title: Transfer Puppy between various USB flash media
 

Note to Lobster and others about Puppy USB boot Transfers between flash media.

I have three ASUS eee PC's. Run them from USB pen drives, USB SD cards, 2,4,8, and 16 GB... and copy bootable Puppy between them with no problems... Am aware of the ASUS eee 4G not working well with SD cards over 2GB... so I plug in a USB SD card reader such as the free bonus bundle a tiny SanDisk SDDR 113, a SD/SDHC USB Micromate. Puppy universal installer with the default options creates bootable USB SD cards with this reader fine, also works fine on a similar free USB SD card adapter from A-Data.

Noticed that if you do not erase the "hidden" Linux loader file on any USB flash media of working version since 3.01, and just erase the other contents, you can then write Puppy files from any newer version, and it boots fine on USB flash drive, or SD media fine, or move files or whole bootable Puppy between the different types of media, and it boots fine.

Have also been successful at cloning handfulls of Puppy bootable USB flash media, or SD cards, or between USB flash drive and SD cards using a flash media bit copier, such as the one in Flash Memory Tookit, or the free Drive Image XML running Windows, as long as the target media is same size or bigger (this works great when you buy a bag of USB flash media). But you do need to make the media bootable, as described in the Puppy docs, or with an external free tool such as BootFlashDOS. These install the MBR and sets the boot flag.

Hopes this helps.

Hi Luther, thanks for Pupeee 4.2

It works pretty good and fast. Booting time from my USB key takes a while (couple of minutes) but that is probably due to the speed of my USB key.

The current version of gxine has a problem with subtitles. That makes it pretty useless for a lot of non-english users. Fortunately mplayershell is easy to install, but I prefer xine. Mplayer just feels a lot less stable and often gives me problems after using it for a while.

Everything else just seems to work on my 701. Great job!
