Is Optimized being updated - it sounds like an excellent derivative, but I don't see any recent info on it.

http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=9058

Firefox with plugins, 3 best audio plugings, Abiword, firewall, ... set to go.

I would love a 'not too much altered from the main Puppy' ready to go version with Abiword, firefox & all its plugins, set up for streaming media, so that 99% of the internet just works.

Is Optimized being updated, or has another derivative replaced the need for it (CE,pizza,teen?) ? Thanks.

Subject description: Is it active, or has it been discarded?
 

I, too, am interested in this derivative.

I have been going through my collection (over a dozen) of Puppy releases to see which are worth using as a base for (eventual) full conversion of my network (10 computers).

Initially I will dual boot with various other M$ OSs and Linux Distros, when I am happy with a combination, I will take the full plunge.

Optimised is one of the top contenders, along with PizzaPup, SimplePup, GrafPup, 1.08 and 2.02 Professional (those are the top ones)

However I ran into a problem with Optimised:

Using a test machine:
I booted it OK before, but wiped the hard drives, reinstalling Win98 and partitioning the drive to make areas for Puppy to play in.
Since then, I get prompted for a login and password, when booting Optimised.
I have booted to Win98, checked that no Puppy files are lingering (they shouldn't, after a wipe and rebuild, but I checked, in case I missed a partition somewhere), so what gives?

.
.
.

Incidentally, I have an agenda: I want to find the BEST Puppy (or other Linux distro) to make a move from M$ as painless as possible.
At which point, I intend to embark on a crusade to persuade as many people as possible to try out the liveCD I have chosen.

So, back to topic, what is happening with Optimised?
(and what's this login prompt all about?)

Sounds like I might have my first candidate for EZpup! Razz

Thanks for the interest in Optimized. I will look into the latest puppy release and try and modify it for the end-user a bit more.. Feel free to post any ideas, thoughts or suggestions, hmm.. this mightbe better suited to go into the puppy derivative forum area..

PostPosted: Sat 19 May 2007, 03:50    Post subject: Optimised login  

I noticed another thread where folks are puzzled by this login prompt in Optimised:

http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=9088

No answers on offer there either Sad

There may be other posts which have a clue, so I am wading through 14 pages of "HowTos" for tips Rolling Eyes
On the way, I am discovering all sorts of useful tips and suggestions.
Which is exactly as it should be, nice work guys!!!



Has anyone got an idea as to what the login ID and password should be?


..... Cliff




(meanwhile, back to testing 1.08, PizzaPup and others on spare machines, while Optimised goes on hold)



yes, I am a Noob, but weren't we all once?
