I just installed slacko to replace puppy 529 because to be honest, it seemed slicker and better.

But one problem.

I have a wireless WPA2 router which connected fine with 529 but refuses to connect in slack.


Did you get a resolution for this problem? I'm only new to the forum and to Puppy so I've just found your query and it seems to have no response.

I've had the same problem but was able to fix it by setting my wifi to WPA/WPA2 rather than just WPA2 and haven't had a problem since. Hope you have already found a solution, if not, I hope that helps, cheers,

Ray

Its xload - which shows the proportion of CPU being used. Its actually showing the number of processes (or threads) that want to use the cpu and therefore varies between 0 and infinity, rather than 0 and 1. This is why it changes scale, and you can get a whole lot of white horizontal lines to indicate the change (when that happens and you aren't running any intensive program(s), it could means that the cpu is being heavily used - which could mean that something might be hogging the CPU - perhaps due to an error. Restarting X or even rebooting usually fixes such problems).

Hi Lobster.

I just clicked on the link "Jesse Smith Review" right at the beginning of this thread, and ended up here:
http://distrowatch.com/weekly.php?issue=20111212&mode=67#feature
This not a review, but just a collection of comments.
I guess the original review to which they refer has now vanished.

I've had a bit of a hunt around, and the review itself seems to be here instead:
http://distrowatch.com/weekly.php?issue=20111212#feature

Just thought you might like to know.

Beginners using Puppy, not building it again. 5.3.3 is really a nice Puppy, full featured and able to run in RAM in computers not so old, and the newest ones too, up to windows 8
(it's easier to categorize computers by the Windows version, isn'it ?)

Hey, just don't want to create new thread :p. So I will try ask it here :p. I have an old laptop with like no space. And I want to run Linux on USB thro that old laptop. Why I need linux is only to use protonVPN, filezilla maybe and download some files from internet. But I need everything it on my USB Stick. So I want to install Linux and save information on my stick. I know how to install it, but is that information will be automaticaly saved on my stick and next time when I run it I will found it?
And next question which linux to choose? Bionic? Xenial? Slacko? Tahrpup? I just need a lightweight linux for that some programs and files Smile.
Waiting for any answer and information. Thank you totally.

Hi FriendlyIce,

Every Puppy will happily 'live' exclusively on a USB-Stick, booting from it, saving data files and changes back to it, totally ignoring --if you want-- the existence of the hard-drives of the computer into which the USB-Stick was plugged and booted. And with an 'old' --at least for now-- computer you don't have to worry about overcoming UEFI booting restrictions.

But there's always a catch. New Puppies may not have the drivers and firmware required to make use of an old computers hardware --little things like builtin wifi adapters, sound-cards, keyboards, monitors. And to function adequately, new Puppies may require more RAM than the computer has. On the other hand, old Puppies may not be able to run reasonably current Web-browsers and openssl required by current Websites. And I don't know if protonVPN may require some 'infrastructure' absent from older Puppies.

If you want accurate advice ALWAYS TELL US YOUR COMPUTERS SPECS: Computer name, model and amount of RAM if nothing else; graphics card and wifi adapter if possible. 'Old computer' isn't good enough.

That said, I'd suggest dpup-stretch as a reasonably good gamble that you won't be wasting your time setting it up. http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=974590#974590: an Up-to-date Puppy about which there have been several reports of it functioning well on 'old computers'. Again, note what I wrote about protonVPN as dPup-stretch is only a 32-bit operating system. That shouldn't make a difference. But, I can't tell you that the people at protoVPN didn't think it does and precluded their use.
