Okay;

You've found the perfect home here at the Puppy forum. Laughing

Many of the forum members have an occasional problem
communicating clearly for many different reasons,

Ah. I thought that's what you meant, but I wasn't sure. Yes, dealing with n00bs can sometimes be frustrating... especially when they don't know enough even to explain what's going on around them.

Getting back on topic...

I will send an email to Esprit and see if they respond, regarding the CPU speed. If all else fails, when mine arrives I'll pull the heatsink. Shouldn't be that hard, I've done it before (albeit only on a real computer).

EDIT: email sent to info[at]sourceforterminals[dot]com. Hope they actually bother to respond...

EDIT2: got impatient and called them... they have literally like four people for tech support: one for EST, one for CST+MST, one for PST, and one for International sales. These guys are pathetic.

I want to test Wary 098, see how it looks and if it'll work for me. AFAIK, my netbook (ASUS Eee 1000HE) supports booting from external CD.

My question is... do I download the *.iso or the *.sfs? I'm guessing the ISO, but with new things, one never really knows for sure...

Iso for Wary.

Puppeee is best for eee netbooks;

That seems logical Cool but raises a question:

What are the differences (at user level) between Puppeee and Wary? i.e. what applications will I see in one but not the other? Ditto for interfaces, etc.

Don't worry about WiFi config on the thin client, btw, it doesn't have it built in and the sole PCI slot is a pin header rather than a cardedge connector Confused

DLing Puppeee...

OK... ignoring the spam you're getting for the moment...

Now I've got a *.zip file of the latest Puppeee. How do I get a bootable CD from that? Or did I do something wrong?

Confused

The zip file is for making a bootable usbflash or sdd card.
The netbooks don't come with cd drives, so an iso for making
cds was not included.
Install instructions are at the same link you got the zip file.

Oh. That not only makes sense, it's actually quite thoughtful.

The irony here is that I've got a blank CD in my external waiting to be used, and I don't have a spare flash drive or SD card.

Embarassed Lemme go ask my father if he's got one.

EDIT: I assume that I can't just use my copy of IMGBurn to make an ISO of the files, mark the thing bootable, and have it come out the other end functional?

I've only used imgburn to burn an iso to cd.

I didn't know imgburn could create an iso from zip files; I'll have to
give it a try.

Very Happy I'm on Puppeee!!!

YAY! This is really cool, although I do prefer Firefox to Chrome...

BTW, I must say that connecting with Pwireless2 is a PITA and very unintuitive. First, you gotta find your network. Then connect -- and the key is in *HEX* (grrr. aargh.) Then you have to disconnect and click "ROAM" at which point you connect for real. Very strange...

BTW, ISO files are how IMGBurn works... if you watch the log, you'll notice that it makes an image file before it burns when dealing with anything else.

EDIT: I see that the spam has been mopped up now. Cool!

EDIT2: Back in Windows... *sigh* Puppeee was actually pretty snappy running from USB...

Couple o' things... upon reflection, there are two things I very much don't like about Puppeee. I know that one is (relatively) easy to change, but I'm not sure about the other...

(1) Google Chrome. I am (as posted earlier) a diehard Firefox user. Chrome has a very strange interface, comparatively, that takes a lot of getting used to. Don't get me wrong, it's still a good browser, it's just not for me.

(2) Mouse clicks. I'm used to Windows Wacko Edition (specifically XP SP3) where a single-click selects and a double-click opens/executes/does stuff. In Puppeee, a single-click does stuff, and a double-click does stuff twice. Very annoying to me, and almost impossible to "get used to".

I'd post this somewhere else if I knew where to post it.

He may be referring to another popular Asberger sufferer here by the handle 'nooby'

and the fact that puppians come in all shapes, sizes, sexes, religions, if any, ages, even planets*
...so you'll be quite welcome here

Tee hee, just teasing Lobster
