hi,
i tried to install puppy on my old laptop with only 40mb ram.
my 1,3 gb harddisk isnt partitioned yet.
so if i boot up puppy, it doesn´t start X, it hangs up and requires a login.
i don´t have password for root.

how do i get puppy to startx, or whats the password for root

i already installed feather, but now i want to try puppy


thx for your replies,

droogi

Hi there - note that 64 MB of memory will be needed to run X. So if you have less than this, you need to use swap partition (will serve as additional memory), or install more memory Smile Try this for more info about installation to hard disk
