I was running from the CD. Booted OK to the iBM laptop, not to a desktop on a sata DVD nor on a Dell laptop.

excellent glad you have it running on something Smile I'm trying out the latest Slacko right now, its 111MB larger iso image than 2.14X, Doesn't come with gimp or half the programs, The DevX is 918MB extracted. Really I see why we need a version like 2.14X for older pc's and newer ones if it recognizes all the hardware.

I tried Tinycore a couple of times when it first came out, It wasn't bad, But it wasn't puppy, I might give it another whirl and see how its improved over the years.

You can also try booting up with puppy ide=nodma

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

ttuuxxx


No luck on that with the newer machine, however brought up an older box with an IDE drive and all is well. Also tried WkPup2x without success. Not a big deal. Probably will play more later. THANKS

Glad you are back in Canada, trust family and all are doing very well!

Hello All
Have done manual frugal install on a ide hd with other pups booting with grub. This is on an old Toshiba laptop 800MHz 320MB. Have a couple of problems one trivial the other more series. I have a PCMCIA card for WIfI and USB2. WiFi is working but not USB2. I've attached a screen shot of my USB info in the hope it will help. USB2 works with other pups. Any help much appreciated.

Regards,

Ken.

well that's great news, I know how somethings get really frustrating sometimes and its great when it works out.
Kind of like the firefox search plugins, grrrrr I made some for firefox to search the forum and Barry's blog years ago in .src format, Then Firefox moved to using xml format so last Sunday I spent like 8hrs working on getting those plugins to work. Finally success I was pretty happy and posted the new plugins on the slacko thread, then within mins reports came out that they didn't work, So I downloaded slacko and guess what, Mozilla changed the format again, this time they ditched files that you could easily make somewhat to a FF generated file called search.json.mozlz4 , At one time you could easily edit .json files but these newer ones are more difficult, I've only spent a bit of time on this, been working etc. I'll have another look when I get a day off again Smile

Now that's even better Smile, Yes 2.14X was the first puppy to get a glibC upgrade a few years back, Took a bit of work to get it all stable. Better add 2.14X to your list of puppy version your using now in your Profile/Signature control panel Smile

Have partly solved my problem with PCMCIA USB2 by using another card. However, this is one of the one that stick out. It covers my WiFi card and reduces the strength of the WiFi. The one I was using is flush with the side so does not give problems with the WiFi. Can someone please tell me if it is possible to get the original card working or not. 2.14X Update 2 is very fast even on this old hardware. I have been using Lucid 5287s2 for a while but 2.14X Update 2 is faster particularly the browser.

Thanks,

Ken.

Hi Ken I spent about 4hrs on it today, was even debating on updating libusb, Cause I have a small USB issue also, when I boot with a USB hard drive plugged in, the distro stops booting, but If I unplug it it boots fine, after it boots I plug it back in and it works. Strange.
But libusb has changed a lot of the years and what at one time didn't take udev now does, I also don't think its backwards compatible.
So I'm scrapping that for now since I was moving forward in another direction and I'll come back to this in the future, If its a kernel thing for you, I don't think we will have a fix for it. If its just libusb it might be possible. I'm no ace when it comes to fixing things like this, but I'll step up and give it a try anyways.
So it might be couple of weeks before I can revert back to this.

Hi Ttuuxx,
Thanks for taking the time to look at this for me. I wouldn't know where to start. I am not in a hurry for a solution so if you can look at it again when you have time I'd be obliged. In a way it's nice to know that even those with a lot of knowledge like yourself have problems with things like usb. 2.14X 11 is a keeper for me. It is particularly good on my old hardware. If I can't get a solution for the usb problem I might see if I can get a different usb PCMCIA card that doesn't physically cover the wifi card.

Thanks again,

Ken.

Hope you don't mind me asking Ttuuxxx but would pwireless2 which of course works with wpa-cli work with classic pup as it fully supports wpa2 and I suppose frisbee is a nono - sorry to ask I don't know much about Puppy 2 to be honest?
