Never hear of "Burg".


Oh, that hurts Edoc, how could you never have heard of it? And I posted such a nice howto. With pictures! Wink

http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=91300

Still, that sounds like an interesting buy. I see it's sold, did you actually buy it?


Sorry, it's a real challenge to keep up with all of the innovations within Puppy and still manage my already fragmented daily activities; Amateur Radio, gardening, work, family, etc ... and lately the holidays.

That specific tablet was sold before I found the listing - but I viewed the "original listing" to gather some detail - then I sent him a message requesting greater detail of the three OS code for Burg.

Meanwhile, persuaded by his example, your info re.. Burg, and the seller's follow-through on posting some additional images on Amazon, I went ahead and bought their used Acer Iconia W500P tablet for $200. + $10. shipping.

Play time in a week or 10 days ...

Curious, if it'll be safe to use my old 1.2 savefile with the new version 1.3...?

Hope you get to feeling better, Geoffrey - take care of yourself, above all!

Yeah, hey, Geoffrey!

You didn't get our permission to even have a cold ... get better quickly or I'm ratting you out to God. Wink

I'm kidding mate. There's no way anyone could keep up with the amount of information that flows through this place, unless they were full time, and even then?

There's no mystery about BURG, in fact, you'll notice it's GRUB spelt backwards Smile And it's just that. It's an alternative to Grub, but I don't believe it does anything that GRUB can't. I just went with it for something different after using CatDude's Graphical Grub for years. If you're more comfortable with Grub, feel free to go with that instead.

Nothing serious I hope? Just too much time basking in the Queensland sun? Wink (Yeah, I know, it's been raining all week where I'm at...but rain's a really good thing, there's no way I'm complaining.)

OK, downloaded 1.3 ...

How are y'all booting, please?

SD Card?

USB Stick?

Frugal?

Full Install?

Any special boot parameters recommended?

I downloaded the iso and burned it to a dvd, then booted the dvd on my
desktop pc and installed to a 32gb flash drive with the puppy universal
installer (frugal).
Plugged the flash drive into my netbook and booted from it.

Just did a Frugal install to my Netbook & it looks great!

Question: Is it correct that there is no default browser?

PostPosted: Tue 09 Dec 2014, 15:09    Post subject: Can't connect to wlan rt2800usb
Subject description: Need help with internet connection D-Link USB rt2800usb
 

I have looked for solutions in the forum but apparently none is working.

I can't connect to the web with Carolina Linux 1.2;

I have a D-Link wlan usb drive;

The driver is installed but somehow neither frisbee nor Dougal's Network manager nor SNS can connect, the wlan is down;

The same happens with Racy5.5 and Carolina;

Or any other version of Puppy except LxPup 13.01 Slacko which is too slow with the PC I have; With later versions like LxPup 14 it is impossible to connect as well.

I would appreciate any help since it is hard to do anything without a connection to the internet - I have to come to the public library to send messages or participate in this forum.

Thanks for your help.

Firefox is the default and only browser, when Firefox first runs it starts clean that's why the message to set as default, as it needs to populate the /root/.mozilla directory which contains the profile with add-on extensions.

Explanation:

.mozilla is stripped back to it's bare minimum before Firefox starts.

After the first run of Firefox, .mozilla is populated

Cool, so the first time I just need to type "firefox" in Console?

What if I prefer Seamonkey for the close integration w/email without the huge overhead of Thunderbird?

Or do you recommend a small email app that integrates well with Firefox?
