Hi all,

I've installed Lupu 5.11 on a HP compaq nc6000 with 512mb/1.7Ghz/intel ICH4 soundcard/2200BG wifi/40Gb HDD.

http://h18000.www1.hp.com/products/quickspecs/11794_na/11794_na.html

I did a full install with dual boot of Windows 7. Installed first go without any problems during the install - easier than Windows as far as hardware drivers are concerned. Almost too easy.
First Linux distro I've used that didn't have issues with the sound config and wireless worked out of the box. Allocates about 300Mb of the 512Mb ram with Chrome/skype/vlc running.

Also goes like a steamtrain and boots and runs faster than the other Dell D820/2x2.0Ghz/2Gb/80Gb hdd with XP SP2.
Nice work Cool

Just add details in this thread of your machines and what works (or does not work),
the more details you can provide, the better.

I will then add your machines to the wiki http://puppylinux.org/wikka/PuppyOnLaptops

PostPosted: Thu 24 Feb 2011, 07:37    Post subject: IBM Thinkpad T43  

OK here is my "newest" PC.
IBM Thinkpad T43:
Pentium M 1.8 GHz
TFT 1400x1050
CD Burner/ DVD reader combo drive
RAM 2GB
WiFi
eth0 with RJ45

running Lupu 520, installed on HD, with no Problems at all.
I did a FULL install (made an extra partition with gpartet.
Tested both Network devices, working perfect with the "Simple Network Setup"
addition: even touchpad and trckpoint at once work fine!

It had an dual boot with winXP and Debian 5.0 Lenny already, so I used this fantastic feature from the installer to just edit the existing grub menu.lst !

I have a "§$%&/ Sony Vaio Notebook sort of work in progress. Can give that status too, if thats also interesting

Yes mate, if it has some version of Puppy on it.
Add it to another post and i will edit the wiki to point at both of your posts.

If you could be so kind, would you edit your above post
and indicate whether that is a FULL or FRUGAL install you have done.

Thanks
CatDude

I hope this kind of post is permitted here? If not my apologies.

My dad has a laptop that he says he will give me when it no longer can support Windows 2000 Pro, so I plan on putting Wary on it since it is for older systems. (It has a 800mhz processor and 512MB RAM that is dying). So I have a couple questions:

- Does Wary have support for touchpads; or really, since it is an IBM Thinkpad, eraserheads?
- Does Wary supposed wireless?

If not, can anyone offer up some suggestions as to what would be best the run, or if I should even try to create my own Puplet for my own needs, that would be nice.

Hello DM was on fire!

You could always take a look at the IBM/Thinkpad links in the wiki: http://puppylinux.org/wikka/PuppyOnLaptops
and see what people have running on them.

They are links to posts in this thread, but it's aim is to make it easier to find what you are looking for.

Note:
They are listed under both IBM and Thinkpad

Hope this helps
CatDude

Most thinkpads I used (at least 4 diffrend models, oldest 233Mhz wit 128MB RAM) just worked ice with puppy. Just give Lupu 520 a try (worked fine with my "newest" model (T43).
see post above.

OK here comes a IMHO definitely NO-GO from sony:
Model: VPC-F12A4E (sort of special model only for one special electronic discounter in germany)
specs:
Intel Core i3 350M / 2.26 GHz (Dual-Core)
RAM 4GB
DVD±RW
500 GB - Serial ATA-150 - 5400 rpm
touchpad (synaptic)
41.6 cm (16.4") TFT, 1600 x 900 (WXGA++)
NVIDIA GeForce GT 330M

I tried several debin drivates (Lenny, Squeeze, aptosid)
and two puplets: lupu 520 and MediaPup1-0a, and the results:

screen resolution:
-wrong, 1600x900 not selectable ( both)
sound (ear):
-lupu: works fine,
-media: nothing
sound (speaker):
-lupu: working (nearly silent, ear on speaker)
-media: nothing
touchpad:
-lupu: no, (no compatible touchpad found)
-Media: yes
network (RJ45):
-lupu YES (but sky2 driver),
-Media: finds wrong eth0 (ohci 1394, firewire?)
etwork (WiFi):
-lupu: net detected, but not configureable
-Media: nothing

So: don't buy any sony crap is my statement!

2 gig Sandisk Cruzer Pendrive with U3 software removed.

Late response, my apologies, but thank you CatDude. Looking at the link on the Wiki (truth be told I had no clue this existed; I feel quite stupid), the Thinkpad I will be inheriting is not on there, but atleast knowing older Puppies works fine with eraserheads gives me hope. Thank you again!

When I do my experiments, I promise I will post.
