I have been asking questions to get myself acquainted with what exactly it is that I need to have a LiveUSB puppy distro. I already have Lupu 5.2.8 something and recently had an issue with Chromium not getting IheartRadio and some Photobucket issues. I was having the same issues with LMMQ17 and just uninstalled Google Chrome and reinstalled and all worked fine after that. We believe that he issue was a bad wireless internet connection. Now I cannot get a browser to download from anywhere in Lupu. One member suggested that the Repository was not working the last couple of days. I was also notified and read that I could only use Firefox and Seamonkey?

I was also told that this distro was not supported anymore, is this true?

Is there a better option for me with LiveUSB? Precise, Slacko etc. I can't even find system requirements for these distro's.
Finally I feel like I am in the right place for this info. anyhow? If I am not then just send me away lol. see ya!

pcpunk,

I gave you some info about this in your post in Beginners Help.

Lucid Puppy repositories are being worked on to correct download problems.
Hopefully they will be fixed soon.

Seem to be working now.



Lucid 5.2.8 is not the latest version of Lucid Puppy, but that does not make it unusable or not supported.
Some hardware can not handle newer stuff.

Latest Lucid Puppy 5.2.8.6 is here:

Puppy is not like Windows.
"We have a new version, so you need to throw away your computer and buy a new one".

The older versions of Puppy are needed by some peoples hardware, so they still get support.

Be more concerned with what works not that it is the latest and greatest.

Some truth to this, but more to do with the version of the other browsers.
The newest versions of some browsers have minimum hardware/software requirements.

Chromium V20 seems to work OK for me.

Could not use Chromium V25.

Downloaded and installed using Quickpet a few minutes ago.

Probably not going to use it.
I do not like Google spying on me and what I do on the Internet.

LH- I'm using Sulu Lupu 5286 002 and Chromium 25 works just fine but was installed ontop of Chromium 20 Lucid. Also slimboat 1.1.5 but only after using slimboat 1.1.4.3 Lucid pet. Pale Moon installs but doesn't not create an entry in the PPM to be able to unintall and it has a few quirks but usable. PM will not allow saving settings.

I also have Smplayer 14.3 and Stube 2.1 installed and working with qt 4.80 from saluki pets

Yes I remember this, unfortunately I was told that this is not supported anymore and to go to Fatdog64-600. I could not even use LuPu so deleted it omg to bad.

Yeah, I am not interested in the latest and greatest, just what works for sure. Can you advise me on what to install. I am just using this as a back-up OS and to play around with. Fatdog did not seem to suit me, and I had to choose where to save my changes every time I quit, I don't remember having to do this in LuPu right? I liked LuPu and would be happy going back if you think I should. I don't think I have my setup in signature: Windows XP64bit with 32bit Home Edition installed, 4GB RAM, Dual Boot XP-LM17MQ.

Or should I go with Precise puppy? If you have time I will follow your advice. I just want something simple and fun to play around with, something that will allow me to find support etc. I am guessing I could go to the new LuPu as my system seems to be pretty robust for an old laptop. Good stuff, thanks pcpunk

I would also like to know if it is possible to install this to a usb completely, No Frugal?

Is it possible to just save to the usb?

And please point me to a good tutorial so that I can install.

Do I need to burn a CD or just use something like Unetbootin?

Installing to a USB flash drive is the same as installing to a CD.
It makes a live Puppy USB.

Yes you can save to the USB.

Using Unetbootin is easiest way to install to USB if you do not want to do it with the Puppy programs from a running version of Puppy..

PostPosted: Sat 26 Jul 2014, 10:01    Post subject: NLLUG  

Has anyone tried recently to use packages for this flavor of Puppy from NLLUG? They had been my favorite source of all kinds of things but the latest packages I downloaded from there failed to install. Because most of the computers I work with do not have an Internet connection, I burned the pets to a DVD. I wondered if they were not working because of that so I copied some to my home directory in Puppy in case they needed to create files or directories at the point of use. I also changed permissinns so everyone could write or run them. No success. Then I downloaded one directly to my home directory and that did not work either.

I searched the forum for NLLUG and this thread came up first and it is the version of Puppy I am using. Alas, it is 189 pages long! I read back to 2013 and found only a vague reference to someone having trouble with pets from an unspecified source. I have been using Puppy since version 2 and have never had such a big problem with pets before.

The Lucid repo was wiped and re-uploaded 2 weeks ago.
Do pets from ibiblio work for you?
