Have you tried pUPnGO 2012 a 34mb iso based on 412 and according to the forum post it boots into 20mb of ram. Worth a try.

Puppyt and rokytnji

http://412collection.co.uk is back up and running and as an experiment I will mirror 412 Collection on Dropbox https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/33223649/412web/index.html only time will tell if this approach works but it will give two options if anyone has trouble accessing one of them. You should note that there may be slight differences between the mirrors because I am unable to use server side scripting on the Dropbox mirror but nothing drastic. Just be aware that the mirror is not totally synced with the main site yet but will be within the next day or so.

I have used one of the URL shortening services to shorten 412 Collection mirrored on Dropbox so you can use this http://bit.do/412web to access the Dropbox mirror only

Apologies for not noticing your email but I will reply in the next day or so. Just been a bit busy of late with various things.

tuxtoo, I've used pUPnGO2012+Extras enough to know that it's not what I'm looking for Wink it's a little /too/ stripped-down... I realize you have to sacrifice *some* functionality for this sort of hardware, but that takes out a bit too much IMO, and it's really not user-friendly or nice to look at. Hate to say it, but looks matter, too...

I posted about this place way back.

But. It is up to you to Sherlock Holmes how to finagle a ezgo that may be in their warehouse in the Bay Area. Have you got any Puppy Buddies like Jpeps who can do the footwork and shipping for you?

Edit; My bad. Posted in the wrong thread but I'll leave it here just for info.
This post was for the ezgo link in starhawks signature.

@ tuxtoo

Yeah, the links work primo now here in Texas.

LOL. Thanks, roky, but I'm actually on the wrong coast for that... I'm in NC.

I really need to take that out of my sig, I've long since given up on getting an EZGO. Just how it goes...

A couple more observations;

1 / The last version of Flock - a browser based on Firefox but with extra features to make blogging and other media activity easier (and IMO a nicer looking interface too) - works well on 4.2 series Pups and should work on 4.12 as well. It's not easy to find online since it's no longer being updated but I'm happy to upload my own copy (from which I'm posting right now) if anybody wants it.

2 / Foxit (the PDF reader) keeps crashing on my computer, so I use Adobe Reader 9 or Epdfview instead.

Thanks for the clarification Mike (and for getting back to me so quickly - I think 4 minutes must be a record for a reply to one of my posts on here!). Yeah, that makes sense.

My old machine can't handle 24 bpp except perhaps at resolutions like 640X480 which I wouldn't use, but others might be able to.

Unfortunately the linux version development stopped. They mentioned some sort of java based replacement but I never noticed anything emerging...

I have a question; is it worth adding an E-mail program to 412 Collection and, if so, which one? I've just installed the Thunderbird 8 pet to Deeper Thought (420) and it seems to work OK (it updates to 12.0.1).

Thanks for the offer, but I honestly don't remember where I got it from - it was a while ago now.

Thanks! That's the one I've got. I was wondering though if there was a pet for Thunderbird 12 (the one 8 upgrades itself to) as it would save time if it was installed instead.

PostPosted: Mon 07 Apr 2014, 17:38    Post subject: Thunderbird-12.0.pet  

I have downloaded Thunderbird 12.0 from http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/thunderbird/releases/12.0/linux-i686/en-GB/

Packaged it and it can be downloaded from http://412collection.co.uk/internet.php#tb

Please note it requires the dependency 'dbus-1.2.4.2-1_dbus-glib-0.82-w5.pet' which is also available on the above link.

Thanks! I don't think anyone needs any more features in an E-mail program than what Thunderbird 12 offers.

For a lighter program, Sylpheed is also very good (and Sylpheed Claws too), but I find them hard to set up with my e-mail provider (Fastmail), whereas Thunderbird configures itself automatically once I've typed in my e-mail address.
