tried pupyy on my work laptop and I had to use the network wizard to bring networking up. It would seem more friendly to try and bring up eth0 (or all interfaces) automatically using DHCP would it not?

Is there a way to tell puppy to do that from now on?

Hmm. I think it might do it if you have a pup001 file, in which your configuration for that particular computer is saved. In other words, I think that once you have used the network wizard to configure your ethernet that info is saved to your pup001 file if you have one, and Puppy will use it to attempt to restore the ethernet connection when it boots.

I could be wrong. Somebody who knows more than I do will be along shortly to set me straight, I'm sure. Smile

yeah, I haven't played with saving anything on the USB drive, so all is gone after I reboot Very Happy
I was worried that it would remember "too much" between reboots, since it's very likely that each reboot will be on a different machine, since I want this to become my "to-go" machine.

I'll just have to play with it more.

Thanks Auda. Smile

If possible you could leave a pup001 file on each computer that you mostly use. That way you would only have to manually configure when you boot on a strange computer (which is bound to require some configuring anyway.)

You could try using the multi-session disk as this saves your settings back to the disk so they go with your disk all the time thus obviating the need to create pup001 files all over the place.

leaving pup files on hosts is out of the question, that's the whole idea of using puppy.
my pup file will be carried around with the rest of the USB drive.

Have you considered remastering Puppy with the modifications you require?

If you type LinNeighborhood in /etc/rc.d/rc.local then all your network connections are restored on boot up I ( if you set them up in LinNeighbourhood for a start that is ) Smile I'm sorry I've forgoten who told me this thanks anyway
