So this is Puppy that does the opposite - it run all win within Linux.

Would that be a good way to use Win through Linux.

Having installed and activated Windows once to a virtual disk, its all in a single file and easy to restore (back to pristine original installed image) or even move to new/replacement PC.

My PC's single core and runs reasonably. With a dual/quad - so much the better. Not though if you use Windows for higher end/graphic intensive stuff.

Being a noob and having "only 2GB" of RAM my experience is not too positive.

Because after you have xp running you have to install SP1 to 3 which makes it heavy..

At the beginning of the installation you are asked whether you want to make a "fixed" or a "slowly growing" hd.

I choose the latest for that would take up lass memory, but later I learned that a fixed drive seems to work faster.

Well this is the experience from a noob.


Hi Nancy, Very Happy
my XPerience is much, much better. My XP runs pretty fast, and works great Exclamation (Dualcore @ 2Ghz 3,25 GB RAM)

Let my show you a few pics:

Der Vollbildmodus, so schaut XP (bei mir) normalerweise aus:




Der skalierte Modus (im Fenster) (O_O)




Der nahtlose Modus (o_O)
(hier des Vergleich zw. der Fensterdarstellung (Kacheln) in Linux (JWM) und XP (klassische Ansicht)



Thanks a bunch, Shinobar - well done Smile

Regards from Vienna,
Walter

My puppies are hanging in vbox at the "Making Filesystem Usable." 3HD, Fluxpup, Slacko (not the latest). I posted in "For the Regulars" with no responses. I figured someone here might be able to help.

Thanks,

Look around/search the forum.
This is/was a known issue.

Hi, is there an SFS which has pre-built LKMs compatible with my kernel v3.8.2-upup (Precise-based)?

Yeah, avoid dbl-posting. Otherwise, forget about that old build and try this one.

PostPosted: Yesterday, at 12:58    Post_subject: Virtual box hosted on 5.28.006
Sub_title: There seems to be another issue with the latest series 4 version
 

I installed the latest virtual box 4 onto a full install of 5.28.006 even though there were comments about the sound not working as well as on version 3.

After the virtual machine is started at some random time in the next 15 minutes, the computer totally hangs.

I have now been running a virtual machine on the series 3 virtual machine for nearly an hour without trouble.

I have used earlier versions of version 4 on the standard 5.28 without trouble in the past

Virtual:
512Meg
Puppy 5.28.006
All default settings

Host Machine:
Pentium based Asus mother board
4G RAM
Puppy 5.28.006 full install

Has anyone else seen this or do those with 528 puppies use Version 3 because of the sound issue?
