What about this 'linux live USB creator' for the windowz - says it can do persistence installs for selected distros.

Thanks to all of you for engaging in this side thing on the Lupu52.
rcrsn51 are you using Lupu520 or some other puppy when you did the compiling?

I mean such things seems to relate on kernels and such.

Pupitup don't have the kernel with the Atheros driver I need to go out on the internet. So sure I can use it for music but not internet.

Lupu until I realized I needed nosmp added to the kernel line booted unreliably on my Acer D250.

So if you make a pet for Puppy I hope it is Lupu520 so as many as possible get to use it? Would be very nice to have.

No I don't want to use Windows and Unetbootin and don't want to use Ubuntu either. I can accept TCL or Knoppix or CDLinux (Slax based) and prefer Puppy so one knows one can rely on people caring about it if something goes wrong.

Grub4Dos can not do such thigns on NTFS which Grub2 can do unless Grub4Dos has recently got patches or new release or unofficial new features but that would have been shouted out in triumph by those that modded it.

That's not going to happen. If a nooby just wants to play around at testing distros, a USB+GRUB2+ISO setup is too complicated and unpredictable.

Especially when there are so many simpler ways of doing it.

Nooby i believe it is a windowz program - i do not use windows so i don't really know how or what it does. If yo have windows + a USB drive, why not give it a try if it is rubbish just format the USB drive and all traces of it will be gone.

I updated PPM with the the update Lupu PPM in Quickpet.
After reboot went to PPM to download this new version of Wine.
In PPM went to setup and this new version of Wine not listed.
Did search for Wine and new version showed up in search results.
Possible problem with update of PPM?
See attached pictures.

Bigpup, I don't know. I just tested and it showed up in both traditional PPM and zigbert PPM. I updated Lupu PPM with Quickpet and then rebooted.

But, I am noticing that your version of zigbert PPM looks different than mine--mine has the repos, etc., on the right. Does that mean anything?

I forgot my version of Lucid 5.2 is highly modified.
I do have one of those alternate versions of the PPM layout.
That is probably the problem.
Sorry for the false bug. Maybe?

Kind of goes along with this problem.

Please help with a mystery.

1. Use Quickpet -> More Pets -> Update Lupu PPM to get the latest Packages-puppy-lucid-official (contents of PPM).

2. Look under System for libpython, hal, gparted <not there>

3. Search for libpython, hal, gparted <are there>

Why is this happening? Thank you.


Did you figure this out?

Yes, I am pretty sure it is because hal and gparted are already installed in one version or another from the original Woof. PPM does not show packages that are already installed. I would have to give different names such as hal_extra-lucid and then it would show up.

Well, I had a version of Wine installed, so I guess my problem is caused by the same issue.
