This was a great read that answered many questions, that a New LInux User and possibly a New Puppy Linux user might ask!

Just installed it thanks to that guide, and so far everything works fine. Cannot get brightness control to work tho. But apart from that, this guide was really definitive. Embarassed

What a Great Resource Page! I somehow missed this? This needs to be in Bold or some color with Flashing lights that says "Go Here First!" LOL I am new to Puppy and Linux for the most part and could of really used this a few days ago LOL. Anyway Great Job on compiling this together and will try to point others to it as much as I can.

Thank You Flash!

Snookie

P.S. I just saw that this was the TOP Post in the "Beginners Start Here" Section! AAAAAARgh! What else can be done besides have it reach out of the screen and shake you? Is there scripting for that in SeaMonkey?

Thanks man. Your work creating this page is well appreciated.... especially by those of who are seriously senior with no teen agers around the house to answer computer questions yet are aware enough to dare to abandon Windows.

Well Done

Thank you for noticing. Laughing As I say at the beginning of the post, it was an experiment. I think it proved that such an index is useful. If it were easier to maintain, I'd keep it up to date, but the forum software is deliberately designed to make such a long and complicated post difficult. Sad

@Flash "OFD"

I will be working my way through your list.

Too often we do not let the workers know how much they are appreciated.

Good Stuff

PostPosted: Tue 01 Jun 2010, 12:24    Post_subject: Great idea - How about adding "How to add drivers/packages"
Sub_title: Suggestion for new user index - how to add compiled drivers to Network Connect / Config GUI tools
 

For my $.02, I think this index is a great idea - thanks!

If I can suggest, a pointer to a tutorial or information on how to add existing precompiled driver packages to Puppy so that they appear in the Network Connect / Interface Configuration tools/GUI would be _very_ helpful.

Background: I'm working with a few Dell laptops of recent vintage (mostly Latitude e6400s), and finding that the drivers included in the base Puppy 5.0.1 (and Ubuntu) distros - especially the wireless drivers - don't work with these machines.

I've done a bit of searching (both here and elsewhere) and I have found precompiled drivers which reportedly should work, however have not yet found info on how to add them so that the Connect tools can find them.

I have started a thread asking for help with this subject here: http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=56290.

If I can suggest, a pointer to the resources identified in answer(s) to that thread (and/or other resources on this topic) would be a very helpful addition to this index.

Thanks for putting this together! I just put it on an old laptop of ours and I'm still figuring out everything. Smile

Indeed it is. I have explained several times that it was an experiment. In my own mind, I proved my point Laughing Unfortunately, the forum software makes it very difficult to maintain such a long post, and that is why I stopped trying.

This is a broken link.

As long as I'm working my way through this, is there a glossary or dictionary somewhere?

Vicky, that index was an experiment. One of the things I found out from it was the forum software makes a large post very tedious to edit. I'm sorry to say I haven't maintained it in years, so that many of the links will be bad.

I agree totally, thank you! Awesome work!

Not only does it make essential posts (and other sources) easier to find...like werwinn said, there are many tutorials there I want to go through for the sake of learning before I need to know!
