Thanks!

How would you compare these "classic" versions with Wary?
i saw the Abiword version in 2.14 was updated... so, it's quite similar to Wary. Are the kernel version too different?
Cheers!

2.14X is a highly updated puppy version with an older kernel, Xorg, the kernel is half the size of Wary, I've been using 2.14X on a daily bases since I start this project 3.5yrs ago, If it works fine on your pc, I wouldn't use any other OS. Smile I use it for my Multimedia Pc and play all my movies on my 42"lcd on it. Smile

RAM usage is much lower with 2.14x.

Nice. Thanks.

OK, Dewbie. But having 512 MB of RAM plus a swap space, the real big issue is CPU usage. Even a light distro like Puppy can become sluggish Sad Perhaps the older kernel is the secret, I don't know this technical issues that deep.

Out of curiosity, are you still doing any updates/developments to 2.14x Ttuuxxx? Smile

I've got Top10 running on one of my really old tinker machines and love it Smile

PostPosted: Thu 20 Dec 2012, 19:16    Post subject: iso and pet file  

Hi,
After reading some comments, other websites pages and watching sneekylinux test video , I think that I found the distribution that best fits my old Packard bell PC bought in 2001 (PIII, 1Ghz, 512 RAM, 8 Go of HD).
Well, I'd like to download the last .iso file and burn a CD of Classic Pup 2.14. but I've seen that with the last release i(214x-Top10.0) comes
a software package (devx_214X-top10.0.pet), is it included with the iso file, or should I download and install it later ? by the way, I'm quite new to the puppies Wink, in the past, I installed xubuntu 10.04 and uninstall it shortly after because it was too slow.

anyway, thanks for the work you're doing.

The iso contains all the files needed to run Puppy Linux. The devx I think has tools for compiling and such.

PostPosted: Fri 21 Dec 2012, 19:00    Post subject: this puppy is slow  

Hi,
thanks sheldonisaac, I burned the LiveCD and made a brief test of the distro.
The CPU usage is often high 40%-60% (busy), it reaches 100% when I open some apps and it hanged three or four times. The RAM usage is low, I noticed the right click on mouse don't has an effect ?
In multimedia, divx videos were very slow with cutted sounds (I used to watch them with XP/Me). flash videos instead work quite fine.

here is the complete hardinfo report :

May be Classic Pup 2.14X isn't the right Puppy for my Desktop, I'm waiting for your comments, thanks. Wink

Please excuse, I am not an expert.
There are many others who are.

With those basic specs, 214X ought to fly on your system - I used it quite happily on a 450mhz laptop with slightly more RAM than yours, and my current machine is only 850mhz. However, there could be all sorts of hardware quirks coming into play. Unfortunately it can be a matter of trial and error with some systems.
It might be worth trying Wary, which is up to date, but designed for older systems, Also consider Akita.

I've been running 214X since the very beginning of this epic thread on an old 733 mhz/ 256 mb ram box with no problems.
Did you check the basics by verifying the md5 sum and that you got a good burn? Wary wouldn't be a bad choice to try either.

Hi, thanks for your comments,
well, the burn went well and I checked the md5 sum and I tried Wary and akita,
-Wary 5.1.4 has a great player, though the video and audio were not synchronized (after launching a video the sound is exceeded by the images). I plugged my wireless usb adapter (TL-WN321G) and could connect to internet very quickly Shocked . It's was ok for surfing but very slow and cutted when streaming videos on Youtube (the browser is seamonkey).
-Akita beta 13 had even more difficulties to run videos than the Classic Pup.

Ultimately, I think Wary is approximately what fit my desktop, but I have to find a way to fix the audio sync problem with divx(avi) videos.

James C & Keef : did you have any problems when running videos with your puppies ? if yes , how did you solve them ? by the way, My video card is very outdated (NVIDIA GeForce2 MX / 32 Mbytes SDRAM).

thanks.
