So, I get my hands on this cute little laptop and think that 214X would be a great OS for it.

Can't do that without checking the forum, right? And what do I see but ttuuxxx is back!

AND there are new .pets to add to the archive! How cool is this!

ttuuxxx, I can't even tell you how cool it is to see you back, and still working on this little gem!

I'll have the updates on the page tonight. You all let me know if I miss anything important.

Exciting stuff!

Hey Sully nice to see you around also Smile, we just need clarf and a few others now and we'll be good Smile
keep your eye on this thread, 2.14X is about have a make over. I'm just about ready to see if this next Alpha version will boot. Replacing LibC(GlibC) with the latest slackware. The latest won't compile against old kernels. So I have to manually remove the old one and system link the older file numbers to the newer files and cross my fingers, it worked last time. Guess will find out tonight if it boots.

Ok guys the first alpha test was a Fail. Sad
Basically it reported back the kernel was too old for the new glibC.
Worked a few years ago, but I guess things have changed.
I'll keep plugging along and see what I can do next.
here's a pic

With regards to numlock on my T42 there is still a problem I have disabled numlock in my bios. No other pup does this.


Same problem in Top10 so my machine and this kernel.

Ok, Back in the 2 series days Xorg wasn't the best at identifying keyboard layouts, They improved over time. So I downloaded the keyboard files from 4.31 and made a pet, lets see if this works Smile
Follow the steps in this order to see if it works
1st- go to /etc/X11 and delete any xorg.conf files that might be in that folder I had 3 of them.
xorg.conf
xorg.conf0
xorg.conf.NVIDIA
Next install the keyboard-4.31.pet
Then exit to X (Hold down CTRL+ALT and press Backspace)
then type xorgwizard at the prompt.
follow the regular monitor steps and then type xwin to start the window manager.
hope that works
ttuuxxx


Hi Ttuuxxx,

Tried your pet having followed your steps and same problem remains with some of the letter keys giving numbers instead. Thanks for trying.

Have you tried /usr/sbin/input-wizard
select Advanced Xorg keyboard configuration key4button
different makes and models
you could read your /etc/X11/xorg.conf in puppy 4.31
mine says
Section "InputDevice"
Identifier "Keyboard0"
Driver "kbd"
Option "XkbRules" "xorg"
Option "XkbModel" "pc102"
Option "XkbLayout" "us" #xkeymap0
EndSection


and change it on 2.14X using /usr/sbin/input-wizard
maybe that would work.

I am sure you know 11.0 will not boot on a newer machine without a IDE drive. attached file of the screen.

Boot with Xvesa on older IBM R52, no sound. Will find an older box to give it a shot. HAY... Bubbles is back Smile>

How are you doing?

Okay, I'm very out of practice. Can someone point me to a good grub tutorial?

I loaded this little laptop with Top11, frugal, with the files in puppy2214 folder, but it's not booting right and I'll be danged but I haven't been able to sort it out.

Used to have some good cheatsheets that I got here, but can't find them anywhere.

Grrr

See my post on previous page. It has my grub4dos entry. Then again, I'll save you the trouble:
title 214X 11
Code:
  find --set-root --ignore-floppies --ignore-cd /214X/initrd.gz
  kernel /214X/vmlinuz root=/dev/ram0  psubdir=214X PMEDIA=idehd PDEV1=hda2 PUPSAVE=ext2,hda2,/214X/pup_save-214X.2fs
  initrd /214X/initrd.gz

I'm sure you can adapt it.

How are you doing?

I'm doing pretty good Smile, Lived in Australia for 14yrs moved back to Canada last year, with the Aussie wife and kids. Smile
Found a workaround for your booting issue.
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=14216&start=15
Also lots of other search results (437)
https://www.google.ca/#q=cannot+find+puppy+on+idecd+site:murga-linux.com%2Fpuppy

You can also try booting up with puppy ide=nodma

Let me know how it goes and if you find a universal fix ?
