Hello

I have been viewing the Puppy Power section on the forum and a suggestion that caught my eye there was the one about putting up a web site on Puppy linux. I have been using Puppy Linux since v4.0 exclusively for about two years now, and I am presently using v4.1.2 HD install, As it works very well for me I see no need to change to another version.

The idea I had for a web site was based on v4.1.2. Some of the programs downloaded from the forum sometimes fail to run on v412 because of missing dependencies which then require a search for the require dependency . As v412 this is my preferred version, my idea was to make programs plus their dependencies available in the one place for users of v412. Plus programs from the forum that run without any further dependencies.

I am well aware there is an abundance of Puppy Linux resources on the web and there may be no need for this. As this is only an idea at present, I thought I would run it by you guys and would be grateful if you would give me some feedback on whether it would be worthwhile implementing it.

Update - 3rd October 2012

How about one place for 4.1.2; another place for 4.2.1; yet another for 4.3.1, 3.0.1, etc...all on the same website?
(or, if this isn't practical, separate websites dedicated to each legacy version)

Then again, there might be (a need)...one-stop shopping would be far preferable to wasting lots of time searching for things.

Maybe a software repository with a search function that can specify Puppy version, the search result will bring up all the software which works with your version of Puppy? Hmm, that's an idea for my own site Smile But you're welcomed to it if you like it Wink

I suppose the tricky part is finding what works and what doesn't with each Puppy version.

Thanks noryb009, it seems you are way ahead of me. I was unaware of your PPMo. So there doesn't seem to be a need for this idea. Oh well!

Thanks for your feedback guys, much appreciated.

Ah very nice. I'd heard of your project before but I didn't know it cover that. Hope it grows, looks pretty good.
