Hi,

I made a slightly patched .rar of puppy to extract to C:\ (ntfs).

It uses icewm by default, and has several wxbasic-applications.

It can be run via qemu (included) or via grub/windows-boot-menue (included).

I patched image.gz to force puppy to use c: as PHOME, because puppy got confused by another vfat-partion on my system.

German "Umlaute" just will work with gtk2-Apps and TextMaker(QT).

More info:

The qemu-version is not from me, I used the files from http://www.erikveen.dds.nl/qemupuppy/index.html

Whereas I can set up and connect to Internet a new version/download of Puppy in 5 mins and 15 mins to set up a HD - I quake at the turmoil involved in making XP workable on a HD (it used to be the other way around with Linux)

However this is a fine compliment and some people require XP - I will be very interested how they get on. Very exciting - have placed this on the wiki news . . .

Great job!

Cool Is Puppy Kewl or is Puppy Cool?

here is something that may be of interest . . .

Thank you Smile

The main goal was this:

In the wxBasic-Board, there are some programmers, who want to test their applications on linux, but fear investigating time and losing data (partitioning).

I posted a Knoppix-solution a while ago, but it is different from XP,so people even had problems in running the Basic-interpreter.

So I tried top make an environment that can be used without learning too much from new.

If you want to use wxBasic with "your" puppy, simply copy /root/programs/tuxbox and /root/programs/window-control to your version.
And don't forget the interpreter in /usr/bin.

The interpreter can be downloaded as a single file without examples here, too:
http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=122054&package_id=135481
There are versions for Gtk1 and Gtk2, they also include someaddons to access the x-window-system directly (to move or resize windows).

The pup-file itself (without qemu and puppy, size: 27 MB) in a slightly older version is available here:

Greetings, Mark

So what can we do with this pupfile? Can we use it in Windows as some sort of "minimalist" Puppy? How? Thanks.

This pup-file is nearly the same as the one created automatically by puppy, except that it includes Icewm, XFE and wxBasic.

You can install Icewm also with pup-get (this is what I did), the other applications I copied manually.

If you do not need wxBasic, you do not need this pup, as there now already is a dotpup for XFE.

So this is what concerns the pup-file.

The RAR-Archive contains more, a whole-puppy-distribution + qemu + this pup + grub + batchfiles to make the usage easier.

Important Notice:

That RAR is out of Date.

Use this new installer instead:

Will test it again this evening.
Thanks for the feedback, Mark
