OK, here's my new browserpuppy47 edition of portable-qemu, my portable-operting system.


sda1 ext3 partition with browserpuppy4.7
sda2 swap

Here's the readme


site: http://multidistro.com/

Contents of Portable-BrowserPuppy4.7 folder:

browserpup_run.sh for Linux

browserpup_run.bat for Windows

Qemu folder...contains qemu/qemu.exe + depends and-
...BrowserPuppy47 (240mb partitioned qemu-img)

You will need a library for puppy if running Portable-BrowserPuppy4.7
in Puppy Linux, and here it is
( http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=319560#319560 )

Direct link here + md5sum

You can adjust how much RAM is used by editing either script
where it says "-m 250", you can change it to 1/2 your real RAM
So, if you have 512mb of RAM, it is set at 250MB now, and cannot go up anymore.
default is 128MB ram.

On a 1gb machine you can give it 512mb ram "-m 512"

Simple, double-click or click either script and Portable_browserPuppy4.7
Will start and will run just like it would if running from a real Hard

To run from USB, same as above; just place "qemu" folder and both scripts on
any usb of 256MB or more, any type(fat32, ext3, etc) and it will play.

Settings, apps installed, etc are persistent.

Basically, it's the world's first truly portable, cross-platform
Operating system!

Boot time from start to desktop is about 1min-15sec using -m 250 on a 2.4ghz
1GB RAM single-core PC.
About 1min-40sec using -m 250 on a 1.8ghz 768mb RAM single-core PC.

Suggest you keep a Portable-BrowserPuppy4.7.zip file as backup in case something
goes awry or you want to star fresh!

If you want to load without pup_save inside, choose norestore option
and setup your own settings.

You can delete the pup_save in the qemu-img hd and start anew.
It comes with 64mb pup_save and setup for ps/2 us keyboard/mouse
at 800x600x24 with auto-dhcp ON.

Also, it reboots, shuts down just like real PC, don't click the
X on qemu window to end! Use shutdown/reboot procedure in

What's also cool?
You can run the Windows "browserpup_run.bat" in Linux using
"Wine"! And it runs just a little slower in Wine.

any questions or comments email me above.Smile

and here's the Download link (100mb)
will de-compress to 244mb!

Sounds ideal but unfortunately the link is no longer valid (I know it is an old post LOL)
