Check it out & dunno how useful it might be in regard to puppy. notice when clicking on the wifi link that the d-link dwl g122 (USB) goes on the 'in'compatibility with Linux section. I’ve got the B account droning on 4 (all I've tried so far) system (3 laps & 1 desk) by puppy 2.12 live CD

Yes, it is a wiki but the list is somehow reliable

Subject description: Thinkpad 240
 

Although it took some doing, I have managed to install Puppy on my Thinkpad 240 with 168MB of memory. It required removing the HD and installing the system using my desktop and then returning the HD to the 240. The 240 doesn't support external boot and doesn't have a DVD or Floppy, but has a non booting usb port.

This message is being sent on it and all the apps seem to work although slowly.

Thanks for the effort from the puppy team. I now have 4 different linux systems on different machines in home. I guess I enjoy the challenge of making it work.

Thanks for listening

Subject description: GT 430
 

Well, my new video card is not Linux incompatible, but it is Puppy incompatible, as every effort I have made to get the driver installed has failed. I can get it running fine in the "big" distros, but the darn thing just won't build in Puppy.

So I would definitely avoid the Nvidia GT 430 for now...

I got it to work once in Xorg but I cant remember what I used to make it work. It works great in Xvesa, but not Xorg? This is on an old Dell Inspiron 8000. My down arrow doesnt work either? Is there a Dell 8xxx keyboard profile in Puppy, as there is in Ubuntu? Ubuntu has a terrible timing issue with this graphics card, that is why I came back to Puppy and now I dont know why I ever left it!

Puppy doesnt autodetect is as Ubuntu does, BUT if you install with the NDIS wrapper using just the TNETW1130.inf file from a windows driver, it seems to work just fine. This little card is under a few big names, DLink, USRobotics, and even inside an old Westell 327 Wireless DSL modem, pulls right out. Installs as a pci: Texas Instruments 111 54Mbps Wireless Interface but I had a hard time trying to use the 111 driver that Puppy provided...[img][/img][img][/img] Crying or Very sad

This thread goes clear back to 2006 and from what I can see, the list is no longer being maintained or updated. Sad

Regards...
