Subject description: Arcade Gaming
 

Looking for a puppy distro that can run Snes, Nes, Sega and Gba games, i have tried several puppy arcade distros but its too much for what i need, i'm looking for a puppy distro that is very basic sort of like Warypuppy so it can run on near enough any computer, i also don't need most of the apps that come with puppy and also don't need the Internet as this will just be used for Gaming, if anyone can repack puppy so its like this i would really appreciate it. Thanks Very Happy

I think you need to get a new nick-name before anyone will take you serious.

also please pick a version you might like to have a base on, like if you only want a small size, does puppy 4.0 work on your pc. etc. What min version of puppy works on your pc.

Haha Will see if i can change my username!

My Laptop is IBM Lenovo X61s 2Ghz & 2Gb Ram

I can run near enough all distro's so puppy 4.0 should be fine, i just prefer small lightweight distros as they are small insize and work on alot of computers.

the thing is older puppy versions have kernels and boot up processes that make some of the latest null and void, you might want to download a smaller older version first before deciding, http://distro.ibiblio.org/pub/linux/distributions/puppylinux/puppy-4.00-k2.6.21.7-seamonkey.iso
that's puppy 4.0

More modern puppies support a wider range of hardware, at the cost of dropping support for ancient machines. For example, Puppy 4.x does not support the Eee PC 1000 series well, because it's older.

However, Puppy 5.x doesn't run well on machines 2.14x is superb with.

IMHO, the way to go is a multi-kernel version - use a modern base (5.2.8 or 5.3.3 ... maybe even Wary - sounds ideal!) and build flavors with different kernels, ranging from ancient to cutting-edge, e.g 2.6.25.16 (as in Puppy 4.2.x), 2.30.5 (as in 4.3.x), 2.6.37.6 (as in 5.3) and 3.x.

Seems a bit complex for me, i have just started with linux and the most i can do is, install from iso,img to create bootable usb,cd and boot on startup and do some of the basics such as install from packages (pet files) i was hoping someone would make a small distro for me in iso, i have tried wary and that is a very good distro small and lightweight,

Thanks for reply darkcity, I have tried Puppy Arcade, but i find it is too big for what i need, and has too much on, all i need is Snes Nes Gba and Sega, also i find puppy Arcade not as much compatible as other puppy distros, when running on other machines

Maybe it is a good idea to start with Puppy Arcade.

If you are new to puppy, you may not know that puppy is quite configureable.
But you will have to get your hands dirty, and start doing it.
So why not start with something you know it will work, and delete what you dont need.
And when you have achieved what you want, then look into compatibility, and maybe kernell versions.

The work has to be done anyway. If you start ground up, there may be a long way to go before you can lay your first SNES game.....

Volhout, thanks for the reply, i understand what you are saying in advancing my knowledge in Linux, i will wait to see if ttuuxxx comes up with anything, and if not i will proceed with puppy arcade and modifying Smile

Hi connorfranciswillcocks; Yes... Change that forum name now! Laughing
How about: Horatio Hornblower ? ( Have you heard the Dick Van Dyke joke? )

# I think a point was missed here... New Puppy versions are not much bigger.
It`s what`s put into them that makes them big. Lots of apps. that folks don`t use.

I asked for a stripped Puppy528-5 Lucid. My intent is much the same as yours.
Except the stripped Puppy stays that way, and use SFS files ( or other types ).
This way the base Puppy needs no modding, just a pile of apps. in SFS files.
Making SFS files is much easier than building complete Puppy variants.

Haha yes i have heard the joke Very Happy, been trying to change my username but it wont let me?,

I think your right i have lost the plot lol, I think i am getting back on track now and understand what you mean. I have just got a sfs file and loaded it to mnt/home, and its works great i never knew about these Thanks. Also on Scott Jarvis website he has a puppy arcade sfs, so if i use a stripped down version of puppy and load sfs, should be a small gaming setup Smile
