After at least a year of struggling with the problem I have finally got graphics acceleration on my Thinkpad T43. That is due almost entirely to MU's New Years Puppy.

These Thinkpads and several other models use ATI radeon cards. And ATI after many years of ignoring the Linux community finally came out with drvers that allowed hardware acceleration. However they quickly dropped legacy card support. So there is a small set of ATI driver (Catalyst) versions that work with these laptops.

MU picked the right combination of kernel and version 9.3 ATI driver in New Years Puppy to make these Thinkpads come alive. I can now run CADs, simulators, and games in wine because of this particular pupplet. It seems unlikely any other puplet will be able to do the same in the future. Most earlier puppies can't support it., and later kernels and later ATI drivers do not support these legacy boards.

If you have a Thinkpad or other laptop or computer using legacy ATI boards which have been unworkable for hardware acceleration in Linux, you might want to check out this Puppy and the Catalyst 9.3 driver.

On the Puppy Linux Links page, the websites table will probably take you to the most popular derivatives. Except I don't yet have all websites.

There have been so many over the years and some are not even maintained or available for download.

I've added full topic contents for the derivatives and puplets forums. This should help identify them.

Looks like a useful page, I've added it to the Puppy Version Index at-
http://puppylinux.org/wikka/PuppyVersionIndex

I'm concentrating on

-merging the list of derivatives -> new table
then
-merging the old table into the new one.

After thats done I can add the latest and greatest - some other people might add these in as well.

Hello nac,
You say you want a Puppy version with Legacy OS / TEENpup apps for a PC that's not connected to the internet built on a later kernel etc.

Don't be fooled in to thinking Legacy OS being based on an older Puppy won't support newer media codecs. It supports more than you think.

I dare you to download it and test it on your PC! LOL!

Please report back your experiences good and bad.
