Subject description: The missing link?
 

Please Note --

Some URLs below were changed because forum member augras (whom I thank
most sincerely) changed the French PuppyLinux repo from one server to another at
the end of October.

I tried to be as precise as possible, but should you have a problem finding a file
listed in the following posts, please let me know, I'll correct the URL ASAP.

Thanks for your understanding.

Hello all.

This thread to present what I feel is a missing link in Puppy evolution:

xenialPup-7.0.6 32-bits with kernel 4.1

While 666philb has done a more than excellent job putting the XenialPup
together and similarly, ETP proposing variants of it, those Puppies all
come with the 4.9 kernel. Now on my machine (see hw listing attached),
kernel 4.9 makes anything run as slow as molasses in winter.

So this evening I whipped up a new xenialPup with the help of wiak's
excellent automated script.

I didn't bother editing anything in the woof template, I simply produced a
small pupsave file with what I think are essential additional configs.
Unload, unpack and use this pupsave only if you wish to.

Contrary to what I usually do, I left this iso as close to the original as
possible. Only an additional background (the default ones are so ugly!)
and some simple configurations, in particular a proper drop-down
menu of directories in ROX and a digital clock in the traybar that you can
see without glasses. Also a logical repositioning (IMO) of the desktop
icons to leave room to potential ROX bars.

To the core of the matter: xenialPup-7.0.6 with kernel 4.1 now works
speedily on my old box. Hopefully, it will run at a reasonable speed on
your old box as well.

Available here: http://augras.eu/puppy_linux/?dir=musher0/Dpup_Stretch

Enjoy!

PS. FYI, ubuntu's xenial xerus comes with kernel 4.4.

Doggone, Musher, you are becoming a bona-fide Artiste with icewm! Wink It ressemble à un renoir classique et élégant.

My pleasure. Thanks for the kind words, belham2,

but I have no merit. That beautiful picture of a sunset on ranching
operations in the Australian outback is from a talented photographer
named Tobias Keller. You'll find that picture under #104263 on
unsplash.com. https://unsplash.com/photos/ucdh5HMkRMg

As to the icewm version, I had Puppyfied a development v. last March
(the one here, if anybody wants it:
http://augras.eu/puppy_linux/?dir=musher0/Dpup_Stretch/Bureau)
so it was no trouble this time.

Finally Great Wizard Wiak has removed any Wink effort from creating a Pup!

So you see, basically I have no merit. I saw a hole on Puppy Road and I
filled it. Plain and simple.

BFN.

Good evening.

For those of you who have an old box with 4 Gb's of RAM or more, here
is a 4.1.2 PAE kernel and zdrv: ALTxenialPup706-PAEkrnl+zdrv.zip
http://augras.eu/puppy_linux/?dir=musher0/xenialPup-706-k41/distro/AutreNoyau

It's the same kernel as the one in the iso, but with PAE enabled. I like the
idea that my Pup can use all my available RAM.

All thanks go to stemsee for compiling this kernel:
http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=856290&sort=lastpost#856290

I just renamed the modules sfs and repackaged the files for this xenialPup-7.0.6.

Before copying and using these files, please make sure that you
have stored the originals in a safe place.
Please also note that this
replacement operation has to be done from another Pup or Linux distro.
Once the replacement is done, reboot your xenial32-706, and you're back
in business.

Enjoy!

Hello again.

Here is Apache Open Office 4.1.4, released two weeks ago. It comes in two sfs's:
the suite itself and the en_US package. Please download the general suite from:
http://augras.eu/puppy_linux/?dir=musher0/apacheOpenOffice
The help, resources and menu files in US English, aOO-4.1.4_en-US.sfs,
are in the same ftp directory.

Once the archives have finished downloading in /mnt/home or in your
Puppy's directory, load the two sfs's with sfs_load one after the other.

Please download also a small pet archive in that directory named
"aOO-4.1.2_dsktp2.pet": once installed, it will set up the icons properly for the
Puppy menu. The *.desktop files provided by the aOO archive do not workex-factory,
they had to be massaged to work on Puppy.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Why aOO? I recently had the occasion to work on a highly formatted docx
file in both LibreOffice and aOO. aOO did a much better job of rendering
the docx layout. It took me a couple of minutes in aOO to reproduce the
original layout, whereas it would have taken at least half an hour with
LibreOffice. (My client had been kind enough to also provide a PDF version
of the document, so I could readily compare.)

Enjoy!

Hello all.

I found the official logo for this xenial ground squirrel! Very Happy

You may want to use the attached at the icon for the xenialPup directory?

Good morning. I'm on the Dell E6410 with 4GB. It's from about the year 2010. I don't understand "old box"; is this 32-bit Xenial not good for this computer? Please excuse me: I still do not understand the advantages and disadvantages of a 32-bit vs 64-bit operating system on a computer with a 64-bit processor.
Code:

Is that correct for this latest version? I'm using it now, with the Iron browser.

Hi Sheldon.

Same as mine!
Quote:

It is not so much a question of "latest version" as a question of "pae".

When I say "old box", I mean any computer, 32-bit or 64-bit, that becomes sluggish
when running a variant of xenialPup, or any Pup or distro, equipped with a recent
kernel (e.g. a 4.9 kernel). My portable box is 10 years old and is a 64-bit dual-core.

As a matter of personal choice, I prefer to run 32-bit Pups on it, because I like
a Pup to be "snappy". On this machine of mine, 64-bits Pups are rarely "snappy".

Also, as a matter of personal belief, I think 64-bits multi-core computers are only
required if you want to calculate the probabilities of a manned space craft NOT
crashing into a comet on the way to AlphaCentauri.

In other words, I believe that normal humans doing normal day-to-day activities do
not need the power that multi-core 64-bits computers provide.

We commoners push our 32-bits to the limit and spend whatever little money.we
earn each week for more essential things: food on the table, for example. Or buying
your child or grand-child a little present.

No one should be forced into buying a multi-core 64-bit computer when the one they
have is still working nicely. We adapt the software to what people have. We do not
force people to have the hardware that cutting-edge developers want people to have.

That's what I say.

I hope this answers your question. BFN.
