Subject description: is not available anymore -- does anybody has a copy?
 

Hello all.

As per the title:
"How Puppy works" -- the famous article by BK explaning pupmodes, etc., --
is not available anymore at
http://barryk.org/puppylinux/development/howpuppyworks.html

When I click the link on this wikka page
http://puppylinux.org/wikka/howPuppyWorks
I get an error message.
Same thing if I try via the ask.com or dogpile search engines.

-- Would anyone have a copy or an alternative URL?
Many thanks in advance.

"The very first time that you boot the Puppy live-CD on a computer, a personal storage file named "pup001" is created automatically. This is a problem if it gets created on, say, /dev/hda1, the "C: drive", but you want to install Puppy to that partition. Our workaround was a menu with boot option to not create pup001 and just run in ramdisk."
Perhaps that is what they are searching.

What Puppy are you talking about???
First time you boot with a live CD.
Only thing that gets created is a tmpfs ramdisk.
That is a ramdisk in memory only. Nothing is made on the hard drive.
To put a save on the hard drive, you have to choose that when shutting down!

personal storage file named "pup001 was the old way it worked in Puppy V 1.
With Puppy V 2 onward, everything changed and only a ramdisk temp save is created in Ram.
Nothing is placed on any drive until you choose to do it.

Bigpup, personally, i still use Puppy Linux as it was for, full in RAM and don't Touch Hard disk...
Sure i could use it on my hard disk, but i like Puppy on the fly,
The debate is in French forum francophone, M?dor and Musher0 tell me that is not the way ! Sure i see that many of subscribers use hard disk... But ... i want to keep the puppy original spirit. And i think that people Windowsians downloading ISOs from sourceforge try Puppy Linux my way.

options are important, and tradition isnt all bad.

i think puppy has always provided many options, in ram and installation.

though i double-checked, i probably never used puppy before 2006. i never used the forum that puppy had prior to the murga forum.

i do like frugal install, i learned that trick years ago from using puppy, and it works with most gnu/linux distros that have a squashfs. you can even debian or devuan from a frugal install. very convenient for trying lots of distros on real hardware.

Frugall install on USB : that is my choice since 2014, no CD to Burn, no Hard drive to touch.. My eggs are in 30 pendrives (buckets).. one can fail..
Hardisk is only one.. and security is much lower ..

one of my absolute favourite things about free software is that we dont have to rely on hard drives.

"oh my computers broken"

"no, just the hard drive."

ive given away free debian computers (until 2016) with and without hard drives. one time i chose to put a small usb on the side instead, because my then-girlfriends niece was likely to drop the laptop at some point. i figured a usb would be more durable. thats libreoffice draw:
