I use it and sold my 2 eeepcs with it also. You don't get any feedback from me because your repos are just fine and dandy by me. I don't post many "help me" posts on this or any linux forum that I am a distro team member
of. My team mate buddies help me out when I bleat like a sheep.

I use various puppies from Carolina, GuyDog, Macpup, Diamond, Slack0, MyWolfe, etc, and what ever else
I can get my greasy biker fingers on.

Code:
biker@biker-laptop:~/Isos$ ls
Rexbang Puppy


So yeah, I use it. I just usually figure out my issues on my own.
I hosted puppeee downloads on my own cloud service till someone
else took over the reins so I try and do my small parts for my fellow
kennel pack bros.

I am more of a Walmart greeter than a coder though. But i can cruise through the linux file system OK and I keep a pastebin account for what
I can't remember.

Besides. It just runs good

After about two years playing around with various Puppies, I finally got around to downloading and trying Carolina 1.1 in the last few days... this is an outstanding Puppy! Might even become my #1.

XFCE is a really good looking, complete, smooth and responsive DE. And somewhat surprisingly, Carolina so far appears to be the least CPU intensive Pup I've tried - even with desktop effects/composting enabled and Pwidgets running, it's idling at 0-1% on this old Dell Optiplex GX620 (Pentium D @ 3.2Ghz), where a half-dozen other Pups typically idle at 3-6%. Excellent!

Very impressive, so far - great work, guys! Fast, full-featured, and it seems everything "just works" OOTB. Cool Would love to see it live on...

Hi Geoffrey, rg66 and all,

I explore lots of Pups, prefer lxde to xfce, but when I package a Pup to give to someone else it's Carolina because:
xfce+thunar is easier for window refugees to emigrate to than jwm + rox;
the ease of customization once xfce is figured out > not difficult, just different;
the abundance of applications;
the stability of the OS and applications > which is why the Carolina discussion thread isn't more active with posters expressing problems and complaints.

I just booted the live CD of 1.1 it would not go online at all.
I am using eth0 the simplest internet connection, all other puppies can go online. This is weird.

This isn't really the place to report a problem, but Carolina should find a network connection on a eth0 from first run using frisbee, I think you are the first person to report such an issue.

Thanks for the responses so far.


I prefer the combination of XFCE and Thunar over other options. This is reflected in my use of Linux Mint XFCE Long Term Support (for certainty of future upgrade) and Carolina (for its good look out of the box, ease of configuration and puppy speed). My netbook and an old laptop dual-boot between the two.

Phew, thank heavens that the net worked for you Laughing

Generally the update is newer versions of the applications already included along with bug fixes and any other small improvements we think of, the main aim is to keep it competitive and usable, rg66 has created many scripts that have given Carolina its uniqueness, it gives us a platform to try out new ideas.

Sub_title: Heck yes
 

Carolina 1.1 is far and away the best linux I have used in many years. Please don't abandon it like some of the others (fluppy). I usually keep my mouth shut and my ears open but on this one I have to sound off. After booting to a black screen with a non moving mouse pointer and no keyboard for six weeks I finally got it to load. Improvements on 1.1 or a 1.2 would be appreciated by those of us who love Jemimah's work and those who came after.

Sub_title: I use Carolina and love it
 

I have been using carolina since .5 I think. I use it as my usb linux and use it on my personal cpu. 1.1 was a major update. I love it. I know it is easy to say yes continue it. I dont have the knowledge to do what you guys do. I know it takes alot of time and effort and truly appreciate it! Only lxde pup and manna get any other attention form me. When I do look at the others I keep coming back to carolina to work with. Still favor pcmanfm but I like the stable and selection of software.
Thanks for your work and you have my vote on keepin carolina going if you guys have the time.

Found a problem that does not exist in precise puppy. Right mouse click in Firefox does not come up with correct website menu in flickr. That is the view image size menu. if it was not for this problem I would switch from Precise LTS release to Carolina. Can i change setting somewhere to get mouse key working properly?

You may want to try spacefm 0.8.7. rg66 was kind enough to compile it for precise, and added it to the x-common packages, http://www.carolina-linux.com/rg66/X-common-packages/ so it doesn't show up in Carolina's ppm. But it works great in Carolina. Spacefm is a fork of pacman, with more options, but can be configured to look and work like pacman if you prefer. I've discussed configuring it here:
http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=726566#726566. Although it is self-sufficient, I haven't tried to set it up as Carolina's default file-manager, just use it when it might be more convenient than thunar.

Sounds like a firefox issue, v26.0 just came out so try an update and see if it changes. You'd be better off to post this in the Carolina thread though.

While we are off topic, I compiled SpaceFM-0.9.2. You can get it here: http://www.carolina-linux.com/rg66/X-common-packages and I'll ask Geoffrey to upload it to the repo.

I use carolina on all my x32 computers pae and non pae computers. I put it
on all the computers that I service. It often works out of the box. My brother
uses Ubuntu, except more and more he is using Carolina especially when
he wants to do something that ubuntu doesn't wanna do.
Carolina usually does what he wants without any complaints He now almost
always dual boots it with ubuntu. He also carries one with him to see what
type of hardware an old computer has.


I love finding my way around Carolina. Although I'm not very geeky I can
usually find what I want. I did not see the survey. I would love to see a new
version. It would be great to have your ideas incorporated into more puppies
too.

Pete
