Works fast. Works good. Slack0 5.7 .exe running inside of Windows 7

This is a triple booter with MX-14 grub 2 doing the boot loading for Windows 7 and Slack0 running inside of Windows 7. Nice and exotic.
Fast as Hell.

Quote from Jabu2 April 2011



Compaq Armada E500 256 RAM


Wary may be best in long run but
Classic 214X -top10 is reliable for solid use on these Compaq laptops from last century, even when only 128 RAM.

live-CD and frugal installs, with swap file
run with no problems on these 10 year old laptops
with various added RAM - see above (recommend get min 256 RAM)
and do keep it simple and basic if needing a workhorse
with no added bling, or swapping of window-managers etc
---------------------------------------------------------------------
[/quote]

I have just purchased an old Armadea E500 like above and find Pup 3 best on this. With Puppy 4.12 with regular kernel and retro 2.6.21.7 I had to manually set up the soundcard ES1978 and upon reboot settings were not saved. Pup 3 had it working straight away using the same kernel as 4.12 retro.

Very strange.http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=511441#511441

I had to install acpitool to get a sleep mode, sensor program to get temp info, and writing scripts* to get along with the OS. The bright side of that is, that I'm learning how to do such stuff. But sometimes I would prefer to have it easier.

*Like
- Script for automatic poweroff if battery is empty cause it does it not on it's own.
- same for to high temperatures
- updating flash automatically (AAHRG, security!)

EDIT: Oh, I have fancontrol issues. When my notebook (no laptop Very Happy) comes back from sleep the fan runs all the time. On one side I like that cause it cools my system and the fan isn't stucking, normally it would get to warm cause my Puppy has no program to start it when it gets to warm. On the other side, having it running all the time is not always fun. Yeah, I know there's a program called fancontrol in repository.

HI All
Running Slacko 5.7 on a Acer Asprie
1.4g processor
11.6 lcd
2gig memory
250 gig hard drive
Wifi

Always wanted a small laptop. Love this laptop

Slacko is booted from flash drive.
Remove flash drive and Windows 7 boots instead.

Hardly ever boot Windows anymore.
Only when I need to write a Visual Basic program is Windows booted.
I write the same program using Bacon in Puppy.

Everything just works out of the box.
Glade, Bacon, google earth, Open office, and so on.

When I boot into Windows I cannot believe how slow the machine is
all of a sudden.

I love the fact that Puppy runs in memory and is so lighting fast.

Best Regards
John

You can add the Dell Latitude C840 to the list. Puppy 4.2.1 works great on it.
Also successfully ran Puppy 4.1.2 on a Toshiba Satellite 4000CDT.

ACER TravelMate 4002WLMi (512MB, 60GB)

Works out of the box with slaco 5.7-nonpae. precise 5.7.1 does not work so greate (think it was problems with the video card for some reason). WiFi works fine. I have not tested the modem. I'm currently running from the HD but running of the USB port also works as expected.

PostPosted: Thu 29 Jan 2015, 15:56    Post subject: Toshiba Latitude L755d running Carolina-Vanguard  

Date: January 29, 2015

Hi All,

Booted into the Toshiba Latitude L755d via a USB-Key install of Carolina Vanguard Release 2. The system was fast and responsive. The only problem being that after setting up sound it was quiet even with volume set to maximum. For more details, see my post here: http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=824655#824655

Sound problem solved: http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=824863#824863

Note the date above. Carolina-Vanguard is the first Pup I've tried on this machine in about 6 months. Previous Pups tested usually were unable to recognize its sound cards. But IIRC, one didn't recognize its keyboard.

It is probable that Carolina 1.3 will be functional. TahrPup tested -- it isn't.

Report:

An old Compaq Armada (7400), 333 MHz PII. 256 MB RAM runs lupumini 5.2.8.7. When I flush the cache, it seems to show a memory load of under 60MB. That makes it very comparable to the old 4.11/4.12 Retro (from my recollection).

(the "also works" list includes 4.11/4.12 Retro and 5.25 Retro)

Even got the sound to work (though the internal speakers are pretty poor -- need to try it through some externals, to see if the driver is correct). It did require that I run ALZA to locate the correct driver (it didn't automagically load).

I didn't try pushing it, and didn't connect it to the internet (the wireless card is out, and have also mislaid my USB card -- the single built in is a USB 1.1)

If it runs on this, it ought to run on most anything... Wink

NEC Versa AX K6-2 450mhz / Packard Bell EasyNote

- Processor: AMD-K6 450Mhz
- Memory: 121MB ram
- OS: Wary Puppy 5.5
- Display: 800x600

more specs:
http://www.nec-computers.com/support2/pib.asp?mode=default&platform=platform_J3

Previously WIN98 was installed on this laptop (working fine) but slow (compared to todays standards) and ofcourse not safe for internet use.

Had to buy 10pack of cd's because USB boot is not an option
Burned Precise Puppy Retro first got error, tried Warry 5.5 on lower burn settings 4x, verified disc. No error this time
Chose Frugal install on HD with SWAP, all hardware automatically recognized except for wireless printer Epson SX430
Had to download epson .deb file fromhttp://download.ebz.epson.net/dsc/du/02/DriverDownloadInfo.do?LG2=EN&CN2=&DSCMI=35219&DSCCHK=01a2288d3ec549615b1491db99fd832d75b73aac and follow this installation guide for epson printers: http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=466449#466449, I added the printer via appsocket specifying fixed IP adress of printer and then find the right epson id in the list and presto it worked!

- Tekst/Excel editing works fine also possible to wireless print now
- Internet works but today's websites are waaay to "big" too load also navigating sites not optimized for 800x600 is annoying. Stick to simple text/html sites for better experience.
- Startup time is about 1m20sec which is decent!

Not sure what to use it for now its decent for tekst editing and printing. (it has decent clicky keyboard instead of those small chiclet keyboards these days)

Running slacko5.7-2015 derivative of micko's Slacko5.7-nonpae on
ASUS Eee 8G w/orig. SSD and 1Gb ram on a 320Mb partition in a USB-stick.

ASUS Eee 900a w16Gb SSD and 1Gb ram ditto 320Mb partition
This netbook also running Slacko Puppy-XL (slacko 5.5 based). Needs a 1024Mb partition to run. This distro on different USB stick.

I recently found wNOP-0.2 (Puppy 3.0.1 base IIRC) in a pile of old platters. I guess the i915 chipset was a bit new then Wink
