PostPosted: Tue 03 Apr 2012, 10:11    Post_subject:  PET Compatibility  

I don't know much about Puppy packages and which pet is compatible with which release of Puppy.
In particular, I want to install "i8kutils-1.33.pet" on Dell Latitude C840. It is fan control utilities.

Would I better off downloading the latest Lucid Puppy or the latest Slacko Puppy? Or does it matter?

Thanks.

small apps tend to have less compatibility problems.

Lucid has been around longer so more things are compatible with it.

It may be worth asking in the thread which Puppy versions the program has been tested with Twisted Evil

Programmers need to be careful about what options (switches)
they use with a command.

For example I used mv -n in a script I made while running
Lucid Puppy.

But later on when I ran the script on other Puppies the script
wouldn't work. Embarassed

I tracked down the cause to the mv -n

RSH, did you install dellfand-0.9.pet or i8kutils-1.33.pet ?
