Referring back to my previous post:-

http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=872709#872709

....a few changes.

Ye anciente Dell ( Smile ) now runs 1.5 GB RAM; it was temporarily 2 GB, but one of the 1 GB sticks 'died' on me, so replaced that with one of the previous 512 MB sticks. Seems happy with that configuration.

The 32GB PATA/IDE SSD is now a 64GB SSD; the Transcend was replaced with a KingSpec - which seems OK.

Additional storage is taken care of by a Seagate 'Expansion' 500 GB USB 3.0 external HDD. I know the Dell is 'only' USB 2.0 (one of the very first to market with it, too!) - yet a USB 3.0 drive still runs faster than a purely USB 2.0 drive, since it more nearly approaches the theoretical maximum throughput for the USB 2.0 standard.

A 7-port self-powered hub plugs into the other USB socket, and allows use of mouse and wireless keyboard 'dongles', plus a Microsoft 'LifeCam' 3000 webcam. And last year I 'upgraded' the original CD/ROM drive for a full DVD drive from a defunct 5100 - the 1100's 'big brother'. Works well, too; plays commercial movie DVDs OOTB with no tearing/stuttering at all. Pretty impressive for a P4!

Puppies - Now running BK's Precise 571 + pemasu's UPup 'Raring' w/3.9.9.2 kernel. (And occasionally I'll run Micko's Slacko 560 on here; I have a self-contained 560 set-up on a 128 GB SanDisk Cruzer 'Blade' formatted to 3 partitions; FAT32 'boot', ext3 'Puppy' partition and ext3 DATA partition. I also have all my documents, music and pictures, plus a good selection of movies; this is my 'go-anywhere' Puppy, which travels with me.)

All in all, it's a very usable set-up. And that idiosyncratic 'Brookedale'-cored video card (the 82845GE/GL) still gives a lovely crisp, clear picture, once it's been 'tamed' with the 'i915.modeset=0' kernel-line 'fix'.

Dell Latitude E6230 from 2012, Intel 2-core i7-3540 CPU, 3.0 GHz, 8Gb RAM, 128Gb SSD harddisk.
Dual-boot with Lick, basic installation Win 10 Pro, with a frugal install of Dpup Stretch-7.5-uefi-k4.9.149. Just upgraded to Palemoon 28.5.0, the Dpup feels very stable. I have no use for Windoze, so I'll reformat the whole SDD to Linux.
