I have found that nothing in these posts helped my searching for a solution. After many hours of google did i find my answer. The forum search leaves much to be desired as i was unable to find my answer using it.

Subject description: puppy distro basic information need to do a proper search...etc...
 

ok i can figure out with 'uname' that its:
1.) puppy linux
2.) kernel version

but is it... woof? lucid? quirky? wary? what the?
mine might be a "lupu.." flavor; as that was the save file offered name....

is there some catalog of these distros? and their respective devXXX.sfs's

or a console command that will specify this is info?

or even a list of the most common distro-info commands...

'there sure are a LOT of 'puppies' out there'



after reading 85+ pages of any given topic, subject, search results, etc. from the forum to discover that it really does not apply to; or work with, the the version concerned gets kinda frustrating..

btw:
the wellminded.com search is about the only one of the above listed that comes even close to whatever i was looking for......(insert u2 music here)

abtw:
please don't waste your time or mine discussing the finite points of grammar, or punctuation. when you could be attempting to solve any given problem...as my professor used to say if you don't know, don't answer, ...don't freaking guess! (she used much stronger words)

we live in an acronymic world here in the web...goi!

As great as Google searching is, it ain't perfect.

Google does not search the "code box" data.
[code]anything in here is not searched[code]

[code]anything in here is not searched[/code]

Try typing [ code]*.*[/code] (without the space which I had to add to prevent it opening a code box Wink ) into this search [at 'all these words'] - it seems to work reasonably OK

http://www.google.com/advanced_search?q=site:murga-linux.com&num=100&hl=en&lr=&as_qdr=all

tip: you can specify when by adding detail in the date dropdown box, if you know what you are looking for

There may be better implementations, though

The most recent addition, not yet in people's minds, but useful nonetheless, is the Community Website Search

is broken.

I always just use this in google:

for the forum:
query terms site:murga-linux.com

other puppy sites:
query terms site:puppylinux.*

barry's blog
query terms site:bkhome.org

... yields almost identical results

& here is another little tip for the day
since I prefer google over bing.com, I ad this to my /etc/hosts file:
72.14.204.99 bing.com

I second Aitch!

To get you started, heres my most used forum search technique.
In google (or search engine of choice), type
Code:
site:murga-linux.com my search


Use two keywords or a phrase to identify you topic.
Then add murga to search terms or 'search within results'. (Our forum genius and genius keyword, too Smile )
That's simple and often enough.

Makin' it easy to get in and swim.

Subject description: ...how to search for the exact wording or phrases withthe Puppy Linux Discussion Forum Search tool
 

Hi Aitch! Smile

I’m using Lucid Puppy version 5.1.1, (released Sep 2010 ) and trying to use the Puppy Linux Discussion Forum Search tool to find exact wording or phrases. I have tried with these quotation marks ( ‘ ’ ) and with these ( “ ” ) but they don’t seem to work. Confused

I’ve searched for the trick in other places of the forum but haven’t found it either. Sad

Could you please reveal this secret to me? Question

Season’s greetings Smile

Try using full quotes, "", in the wellminded search tool [google forum search]

http://www.wellminded.com/puppy/pupsearch.html

or try allintext:xxxxxxx in that tool, quoting what you want found as xxxxxxx
