hello everyone
we got involved in a project about digital tv; we need a pc to show video + some other things (adverts, text, etc).
As to stability and costs, we thought about a linux solution rather than Windows, and I have seen some nice comments about Puppy, so I thought it could be a good distro to use...
Somebody here suggested it would be nice to boot from a CF, he insists it's quicker than from HD (anybody here could confirm this?), because we would need a quick boot time.
To properly work with our DVB card, a latest (2.6.13) kernel release is needed, ¿can we easily update to this without risking messing too much?
We would also like to add some of our software, so that our apps work without mouse/keyboard. And what would be most desirable, as we need to install this in many boxes, would be to create an iso and being able to install it on every machine. Also maybe removing some, as we don't need things like text editors, etc.
So do I need a live edition or not? Did Armstrong really walk on the moon? Wink
Now that looks like an awful lot of questions. If some of you could answer some of them, I would be very thankful...
Cheers

Raul

Hi Raul

The 2.6 Kernel was used in Puppy 1.0.2
As the 2.6 kernel was not working with NTFS we went back to 2.4

Barry is attempting to allow Puppy a choice of kernels but I am not sure how that is progressing . . .

I suggest you familiarise yourself with Puppy unleashed and Puppy Sourcer http://www.goosee.com/puppy/development/puppyfromscratch.htm

It is most likely and credible that Neil Armstrong walked on the moon (the world is not flat incidently)

Hopefully your other questions will be answered too.

Good Luck.

Can't really help that much with most of your questions - hopefully others will chip in.

For fast bootup puppy is exceptional - about 15 seconds on my sempron 2200+ 512Mb 80Gb HD system. Booting from a Hard Disk option 2 install (option 2 install simply means having a whole partition dedicated to puppy linux.

Regarding the Compact Flash idea - see here

Here's a new remastering How-To that looks like it might be helpful to you.
