Subject description: Why aren't you using it if it runs on your PC ?
 

Over time I'll add regularly the Applications included in Legacy OS 2 that make it a far more useful Distro then most users realize.
For those ignoring Legacy OS 2 for one reason or another, I hope this post entices you to rethink your thinking and discover why I'm so proud of this release.

Lets start with the version of K3B Burner included in Legacy OS 2 what can it do?

* Burn MP3's to Music CD
* Burn data CD's and DVD's
* Burn Mpeg1 in to VCD's
* Copy DVD5's
* Burn DVD9 to DVD5 created by K9copy.

Plus a whole lot more!

K3B is my favourite Linux burning utility. It was the first I used when I was growing up on Linux. :3

Where is the post with your .iso for LegacyOS 2 (or a direct link for it?) I tried to search for it a few pages back and nothing. Either that or I am completely missing something.

Another great Application is "Multimedia Converter 1.5" This was a lost Application from 2007 I found and have brought back.

I can't guarantee all options work but most do, enjoy!

K9copy where legal will shrink a DVD9 to a DVD5 even if it's an encrypted DVD. An average movie takes about 45 minutes to an hour to shrink.
An iso file is created which gets burnt by K3B.

Another useful Application is Mandvd.
I know this is an earlier version which suits Legacy OS 2's system well.
Turn those Videos and Pictures in to a DVD Home Movie to share.

I read your post about Legacy OS and decided to burn a CD and give it a try. I remember trying Legacy OS quite a while ago, but I couldn't get a wireless connection and moved on.
This time, I loaded the correct wireless module and the wireless connected fine. I'm using Legacy OS right now.
This laptop is a Compaq N410c with a 1.2 GHz PIII processor and 512 MB of RAM. I'm using a D-Link DWL-G650 PCMCIA wireless card and connected to my home wireless network with WEP encryption.
So far, everything works perfectly and my little laptop seems pretty zippy. You have included a very rich suite of apps, more than any other puppy variant I've tried lately. I have a family member running Ubuntu 11 on an older desktop, and I'm going to see what she thinks of Legacy OS, I'm pretty sure it is just the thing for her.
Thanks for the hard work,
Dave

The ath_pci wireless driver works with my D-Link G650 PCMCIA card. Good thing I wrote down which driver worked in another puppy, because auto-probing loaded 9 drivers that didn't work before finally loading the ath_pci driver.

1. "Why aren't you using it if it runs on your PC ?"
I'd LOVE to give this a go...
But it wouldn't boot on my old [2003] hardware.

Is there a fix?
Should I give it a 2nd try?

Hello Sylvander,
Can you list the specification of your PC.
How many Hard Drives does it have. Does Legacy OS 2 boot at all?
Can you run it Live. What errors do you get.

Hello Sage and others, if anyone has ideas when the specifications are listed please post your ideas. Lets see if we can get Legacy OS 2 installed on Sylvander PC. The results might inspire others to try also.

Hi John, just wanted to let you know why I am still using TeenPup 2010. When I try to install to my Sony Vaio laptop, it shows hard drive partitions as hda, instead of sda. I don't have enough time to research this right now, but wanted to let you know what my problem is. Legacy looks great and runs fine from the cd, but I always do full installs. Thanks, Rob

Hello oligin10,
TEENpup 2010 Mini is based on Puppy 4.2.1 and has kernel 2.6.26 where Legacy OS 2 is based on Puppy 2.14 which has kernel 2.6.18

Between those kernels the kernel team decided to change internal Hard Drives definitions from hda to sda which use to be and still is in Legacy OS 2 a USB Stick. You'll do no damage to your PC, we hope! LOL!
