Opps, I forgot something. Embarassed

I understand that I cannot access my real harddrives from the VMWare machine. This situation is no big deal. I'm just testing some distributions of Linux.

The internet access works in Puppy.

I love puppy so much that I might burn a Live CD or install Puppy with Grub when I have more time.

But for now, I can play around with AbiWord and other nice office programs with Puppy and VMware player.

Bye!

Two attempts to download the .zip file from Mark's site failed about three quarters of the way through. But the .rar file downloaded and installed okay.

Puppy 1.0.7 runs really well under vmware. Smile

I just downloaded the .ZIP file and it downloaded and unzipped and ran just fine. So I am not sure where the problem is coming from.

Just a little thought, to access your hard drives whilst running puppy vm, you must remember to mount them first. Your c: drive wikll most likely be called swap. Idea

The Puppy 107-vmware moved to a new server:
http://htb65.de/puppylinux/puppy-releases/1.0.7/

There also is a new vmwareplayer for Puppy 2.02, for details read this thread:

I came across safe_home_banking.vmx on the VMplayer site. Simple editing is all it takes to make it work flawlessly with the Puppy iso file to your liking. In fact it works with all kinds of iso files.

This way I can try an iso in virtual machine. If I like it I can install it on my machine. In any case it is a major space saver.

I have created a 4 gb virtual drive with a 2.5 gb bootable dos 7.1 partition, 500 mb Linux swap & a 1 gb hda 6 for use in vmware player. So far it has used up only 18 mb of space. What I have to experiment with is to boot & install Linux to this virtual drive.

This sounds very interesting and I would like to try it.

Could you give more info on where to get 'safe_home_banking.vmx' and how to set it up to run any Puppy iso?

What editing is needed?

You can download the player from the following site...

http://www.vmware.com/products/player/

Install this file.

he appliance is actually a very simple text file. Copy paste the following test in a txt file. Rename it to "puppy.vmx" Leave out the Top & bottom dashed lines.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
config.version = "7"
virtualHW.version = "3"
scsi0.present = "TRUE"
memsize = "128"
MemAllowAutoScaleDown = "FALSE"
ide0:0.present = "FALSE"
ide0:0.fileName = "Other.vmdk"
ide0:0.deviceType = "ata-hardDisk"
ide1:0.present = "TRUE"
ide1:0.fileName = "puppy.iso"
ide1:0.deviceType = "cdrom-image"
floppy0.present = "FALSE"
ethernet0.present = "TRUE"
ethernet0.connectionType = "nat"
usb.present = "TRUE"
sound.present = "TRUE"
sound.virtualDev = "es1371"
sound.fileName = "-1"
sound.autodetect = "TRUE"
displayName = "Puppy Linux"
guestOS = "other"

ide1:0.autodetect = "TRUE"
----------------------------------------------------------------

Place your "puppy. iso" file in the same folder as this puppy.vmx file. Start your vmplayer & point to this puppy.vmx file. You have a full functional virtual machine. Select video resolution in Puppy to one level below your host's native resolution otherwise you will fill up the screen entirely.

You can simply change the 2 obvious puppy references in this file & use it with absolutely any iso you have. You can change memory allotment to suit your hardware. Do not use an iso that installs an os since this file does not furnish a pre configured virtual hard disk. For foing that some changes as well as an additional file of about 1mb size are required.

Hope this helps.

Is it possible to make The Puppy 211-213-vmware? It would be incredible!

PostPosted: Fri 12 Jan 2007, 21:45    Post subject: Torsmo replacement  

while struggling with some "unknowns" in the control file of Torsmo which isn't maintained since 2004 I stumbled across a fully maintained successor: Conky (conky.sourceforge.net). It's a bit "fatter" then Torsmo with more capabilities but to me the most important aspect is that it's maintained. Compiled and installed without problems so far.

Hi don't worry about the previous request for a link
I followed the instructions for the VMX file
downloaded Murga's 50M Mean Puppy
and it works fine Very Happy

had to rename iso to puppy.iso Changing the name in the script to match Murga's 50M Mean Puppy file name did not work.
