Well, I thought I had found the solution to a lot of problems. But the first one I tried to follow I found that my file system doesnt look anything like the one depicted in the video. It didnt help me because the first thing it told me to do was to navigate to <.usr_more> That file is not in my file system!!!

I tried to do some improvisation and found that other files mentioned were also not in my file system so I gave up.

Can you make a how to vid on converting .deb or tarball into pet packages? (I don't think that's the right sentence on what I have in mind.
Um, For example, I'd like to install Audacious, but seeing that there seems to be no pet packages available, I download the .deb version of it. How then do I integrate it to the system after?

1. Recently had to set up a WIRELESS ROUTER.
Connecting my PC by cable, and my TV [downstairs from my PC] wirelessly using a USB dongle connected to the TV's only/single USB socket.
The TV is thus able to go out on the web without the help of the PC, using just the router and cable modem.

(a) Tried first in Win2000Pro, where it was really easy.
Just put the supplied CD in the drawer and close it, and wizard runs, and I followed instructions given.

(b) Now tried to do something similar in Puppy.
Couldn't find the Wizard, don't know if such a thing exists.
Ended up typing the routers' IP address into Firefox, then it was easy enough.

2. Is there a better way in Puppy to do this?
How about a HOWTO video?

Could someone point me in the direction of a video or simplified instructions on how to update java on puppy? I've been to the java site but I'm not sure I understand which one to download or how to install it.

Really good stuff these short videos,
Thanks Rhino.
I've just burned myself an iso using BurnCDCC. I had to go to this site to get my copy:
http://www.snapfiles.com/downloads/burncdcc/dlburncdcc.html
rather than the one featured in the video

Subject description: sneekylinux - 5 days with Lucid
 

sneekylinux has a series of videos on youtube showing five days with Lucid 5.2 on his computer. He starts by aiming to see if Puppy can do everything you need a computer to do.

There is some stuff along the way that is very helpful - like setting up a printer. Now I think I could probably do it!

So to You Tube and search for sneekylinux. From there, it shouldn't be too hard to find.

Enjoy.

Nothing is working I get ether: Go Daddy. of Forbidden, 404-File not Found. I am hungry for this knowledge, and I am leaving Recommended for beginners starving. What is up with that.[/b]

Look at the time-stamps at the top of the posts (many of the posts in this thread are YEARS old -- probably expired links and servers). Threads aren't deleted here, just because they're old -- but servers and links do "die"...

So, to learn more:

http://puppylinux.org/main/Overview%20and%20Getting%20Started.htm
http://puppylinux.org/wikka/HomePage
http://www.puppylinux.com/

Lots of stuff and info here:
http://puppylinuxstuff.meownplanet.net/puplinks.html

To find tools and patches, I often enter a search term in Google such as "puppy linux wikka _______", for example ""puppy linux wikka flash"

http://puppylinux.org/wikka/FlashPlayer

(note the link at the top of the page to get the flash player)

Software exists in many, many locations... But the main archive is Ibiblio (and its mirrors -- I forget the name of the European server):
http://distro.ibiblio.org/pub/linux/distributions/puppylinux/

And Barry's Wary and Quirky projects:
http://distro.ibiblio.org/pub/linux/distributions/quirky/

Pick you version, and select software from the appropriate folder.

Suppose you've wisely chosen the current stable (5.28.004)
http://distro.ibiblio.org/pub/linux/distributions/puppylinux/puppy-5.2.8/

(you need none of the updates from here, just the main .ISO image -- the updates are patches to bring you to v.004).

Then you go into the Lucid package collection:
http://distro.ibiblio.org/pub/linux/distributions/puppylinux/pet-packages-lucid/

Where you could grab your favorite browser, perhaps "Firefox-9.0.1-2-Lucid.pet" (download, click on it and answer "yes" and it will install).

And lastly, use the "Well Minded" search engine (see the link in my .sig) which will help you locate software discussions within John Murga's site (and elsewhere).

Good luck (and feel free to ask questions, that's what the forum is for).

Edit: Here's another thread that's worth reading:

RetroTechGuy, that's a great collection of links you compiled above, thanks!
I was just searching for the extent of Puppy tutorial videos and I came across a repository of Rhino's original videos, produced using "Wink": http://web.archive.org/web/20091122030741/http://rhinoweb.us/

Coolpup, darkcity, Lobster and others have been doing a fine job with the "Puppy School" pages and from this point here http://puppylinux.org/wikka/PuppySchool the reader can also access Rhino's archive plus more recent 'how-to' tutorials from the likes of icyOS, IvanSampa, lobster et al. (As a perennial noob, I wish I'd found these resources much earlier Embarassed )

Hats off to ALL who make "How to Videos" They are great ! It did however come to my attention that for users who for some reason or another are stuck with dialup,viewing them,is not a pleasant experience.
Just saying cheers
