PostPosted: Sun 22 Dec 2013, 11:04    Post subject:  

that is what I wonder about too.

Should I stay or should I go?
Stay using Lupu 528-005
or upgrade to latest Lupu 5286?

Or should I follow the recommendation
of Barry Kauler and opt for latest Slacko?

or some other Puppy variant?

Why I stay with Lupu 528-005?
I have put it's Cache on /Home
and it's .mozilla on /Home
and if I get a new Puppy with Firefox
would it not make a mess of my beloved set up
of all the other programs I am so used to.

I would have to start all over with Viewnior
and Geeque and all the other programs
and it took me months to set them up
and I have no clue how to do that again.

That is why I stay with the older version of Lupu.

Yes, nooby.

Stay, don't move.

Everything, everyone is moving forward, forward, forward; newer, newer, newer.

I think it's Time to stay and to keep things.

To move sucks, to stay is pretty cool.

We are all moving too much and too many. Not only personally, but also globally by moving products all over and around the world - except: Human Rights.

Human Rights should be the one and only product, that should be moved all over and around the world - at least for one or two decades, I think.

So, keep staying!

Slacko is astoundingly well supported compared to most other distributions, even Precise is not close to Slacko.

That said, I would like to see more Puppy distributions robustly support yum and apt-get out of box. Much as I like the SFS and PET distribution mechanisms, a tiny fraction of Linux packages are ever re-packaged as PETs.

Hi,

Can anybody introduce me to a puppy that bluetooth works out of the box? The reason I ask this is because I have a bluetooth mouse and I don't know how to get bluetooth working even after reading several pages.

Thanks

I have found a puppy that has bluetooth and it works with my bluetooth mouse. Thanks to CsipeszPup!

Precise 5.7.1 retro "CsipeszPup" released

http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=93679

The bluetooth.sfs that csipesz provided also worked with his lupu xp. Nice!

But I tried bluetooth.sfs with precise puppy xfce based and it doesn't work unfortunately. The taskbar disappears in xfce when bluetooth.sfs is loaded.

Anyway, it is so good to know that I don't have to turn to full ubuntu linux to get a linux that has bluetooth function.

Thanks for the tip. I'm using csipesz now and yes, it does look good.

Subject description: Need lightweight puppy which has a kernel that I can get Skype to work on
 

I generally use 3HD or Fatdog. However I want to find a Puppy that loads and goes quick on this old netbook but is up to date enough to run Skype. MS$ has cut off users of older versions of Skype.

Spec are: HPMini 110-3500; Intel Atom N550 @ 1.5GHz; 1GB ram.

The supplied Windows 7 Starter is especially horrible on this machine!

Suggestions please?

My personal favorites are Carolina and X-Slacko.

Carolina has Skype 4.3, which I think is the latest version on Linux.

Many Carolina packages work on X-Slacko, but for Skype i don't know as I have not tried.

Thanks yerc1. Carolina ISO is 3/400 MB, which gets expanded on loading. It might be a tight fit in a 1GB Ram machine? Running it from HDD is likely to be un-Puppy slow. I will have a look at x_slacko.

No worries Snail.

Carolina (the main edition) is indeed bulkier than most puppies, and that's due to LibreOffice being included. The size difference aside, it is as quick as any other puppy.
If you are not into LibreOffice, there's a Carolina light edition (Carolite) with just the basic building block which you can then turn into your own Carolina by adding apps from their regularly updated repo.

Both run nicely on my Acer Aspire One 532h netbook with just 1 Gb ram.
And I'm talking about frugal install and usb install.

If however, you decide on X-Slacko based on size, I'm sure you will be one happy user.
It's the third frugal and usb install I have.

All the best.

I'm looking for a puplet that has the following:
-new chrome and flash
-SNS or another *very* simple wireless wizard
-opengl drivers that would work with a ~3-4 year old Quaddro graphics card, DVI out.
-preferably gnumeric
-cups, with brlaser or the Brother drivers for the DCP7065DN preinstalled
-icewm/jwm/other Start-menu based wm with files on the desktop
Yes, this is standard, but there are a few exceptions.
-ath9k_htc module for AR9271 usb wireless (or zd1211rw for said chip)
I'd like something that fits on a cd, the smaller the better. 64-bit or pae optional.

For background, my family's PC runs Windows 7 Professional; my brother built it himself for a CAD class. Hardware is as follows:
CPU- K8-family 3-core with the fourth core unlocked, overclocked to 4+ Ghz.
GPU- Quaddro (I forget if it was 1000 or 200)
RAM- 8 GB
Disk- Revo SSD (50GB or 100GB) and WD HDD (512GB)
Optical- 1 CD/DVD burner.
Either a disk took a dump or something happened to the boot record, so it's not booting.
I'm looking for a live cd I can give to my mother to work on taxes. Technically a DVD would work, except that I'll need to boot a live cd to ram, download the iso to ram, and burn it to disk. My mom does not like computers or learn them quickly (she used a PC in the 1980s for accounting, and thinks of things in terms of the dangers of that era), but has used Windows some. Her usual browser is Chrome.

I was using Precise 5.7.1, but felt the desire to upgrade. So I went to Tahr 6, but could never resolve my sound card issue. Caroline (beautiful, btw) wouldn't let me online (Slacko gives me fits too), Xslack brought me back to the sound card issue.

Simplicity? I just flat-out hated Simplicity.

So I delta'd to Precise 5.72, and I suppose I could carry on in that vein for a while...

[edit] I can't get the network setup to work in regular Slackware either, so it's no surprise that it won't work in derivatives. My computer is such a touchy old POS that no one should be embarrassed or feel the need to offer advice.

bugman, if you're actually interested in some help, I run X-Slacko 2.2, and I'm very good with crotchety old heap systems Wink start a thread for your issue and I will help if I can.

I have one dialed in on AntiX testing 14 patch 5.
Most touchscreen posts I have read here are for 64 bit gear and isos.
I recieved my 2nd one via fedex today and am leaving it alone till I decide
on what to roll with on it.

So being lazy and asking here instead. Wink
Though I doubt any forum member besides me has one. Laughing

Embarassed

Code:
Bus 004 Device 002: ID 22b9:0006 eTurboTouch Technology, Inc. Touch Screen


Puppy search gives no results on lsusb ID number. So not looking good I guess.
