Every single link on this thread is dead. Period.

I think RetroTechGuy is right. The links are still there, but the stuff at the other end of them is long since retired. Perhaps somebody might consider re-making a short 'newbie's' video to explain, in as short a space as possible, how to install Puppy?

I only suggest this as we have a generation of newcomers nowadays who have grown up, expecting to find video tutorials for absolutely everything. Having got SimpleScreenRecorder up-and-running, I might even have a go at it myself.....but please, everybody, don't expect top-notch post-production quality!

Watch this space. If I manage to create something of acceptable quality, I will of course find a host for it and post links.

Evening, all.

Well, I said a while ago that I was going to make a Puppy installation video.....and, wonder of wonders, I've finally got around to it.

This shows the installation of 'Slacko' 5.7.0 to a USB flash drive, from an existing 570 'frugal' HD install. I would have liked to show this taking place from the LiveCD.....but you need Simple Screen Recorder installed in order to make the video to start with!

(And it needs a shed-load of dependencies.....)

Anyway, this shows the main points of the frugal install.....and it's essentially the same process for the majority of Pups. Hope this helps..!!

You're very welcome..! (And 'Welcome' to the kennels...)

Hope it was of some small use..!

(If you've got any suggestions for tutorials you think might be useful, give us a bell. If I find the time, I'll see if I can stir the old grey matter into action, and make some more...)

PostPosted: Sun 13 Aug 2017, 21:19    Post subject: Getting started.. installation for complete utter noobs  

after 3yrs of consideration and failed attempts, followed by 4 very determined days of tears, swearing, lager, nicotine... I have finally managed to install a version of something which isn't Windows.

Here is a non-jargonized guide to getting Puppy onto your old PC. It is written in normal English (non-tech)... so it is easy to follow.
It could do with a little tidying-up but massive thumbs up to the author... I'm not a donut, but the vast majority of 'guides' are far from intelligible and are seriously off-putting. This one is EASY to follow and does not assume prior knowledge.

Anywayz... this WILL make some kind of sense to users migrating from Windows...

By the way... am absolutely astounded with what Puppy can do with 384mB of SDram!!!

I've been converted!!! Smile

fiskrond, i am very happy for you. Happy that tutos videos get you run Puppy successfully..
S-kami is doing a lot of tuto , magyar speaking.. I hope some french will do the same.. We have some. The tuto must explain a process and precise for which computers. Remember partitions are not the same on very old XP and newer Windows 7...
The usual way to boot nowadays is not with a CD or a DVDs...

Yes you made a really good video Mike - I've subscribed to your channel Smile I will be spending some time over the break with some Puppy-convert-wannabe's, and I hope that will give me fresh ideas on where the most challenging concepts might lie for those new to Puppy (and Linux). Is there a list of titles somewhere for the earlier "how-to's" from Rhino, perhaps copies stored somewhere?

Hopefully some newbies can chip in with additional suggestions for "how to" videos but for my mind, the most problematic issues I had with Puppy when making the leap from Windows were: - dealing with drive/partition naming conventions from C:, D:, E: etc to sda1 (or hda1) etc file directories; the multiple subdirectories for "home", Bin, etc and the rationale for the sometimes fractal-like organisational structure in Puppy Linux; coping with ROX and the non-operational 'delete' key, no tree view for directory structures; all the multiple workspace goodies that are perfect for the way I use laptops in the field - that Windows still can't get right; and - how in the heck is all this super-fast software, tiny operating system with all its security structures (and low virus risk) *actually FREE*???

Once I was able to handle the above concepts, the higher-order abilities to govern your operating system configurations and *even make your own individualized version of Puppy Linux* kinda fell into place, and it was "off to the races". Mind you, I don't think I truly understand how the SFS really works...

Morning, Puppyt.

Well, I'm pleased you found it useful.

It's beyond time I updated that, anyway. When I made it a while back, at that time I was having major problems getting audio recording to work on the big Compaq desktop (since rectified by replacing the ancient, default version of ffmpeg with a modern version!). I ended up recording the video on the Compaq, then recording the voice-over with don570's Bacon Audio Recorder on the old Dell lappie while watching the video on the Compaq, so as to get the synchronization correct (nightmare!), followed by combining the two together with Openshot before finally uploading it to Youtube.....

The problem, as I said, is now solved. Not only do I have a modern version of ffmpeg throughout the kennels, I've also upgraded my very elderly, cheap'n'cheerful headset for a decent USB model from Logitech, with its own sound card built in to the somewhat chunky connector. Having its own card has made all the difference, with the result that after tweaking the settings, every single one of the multiple screen capture apps I use now works perfectly; it's simply a case of recording & uploading.

Makes such a difference when the hardware & software all works together, the way it's supposed to..... Very Happy

-------------------------------------------------

Another 'tip' for ya, related to the above. I've been experimenting these last few days; now that I have two sound cards, I wanted to be able to switch back & forth between 'em easily. I've discovered that the 'modern'-look Alsa Sound Wizard from the current Pups is a direct, drop-in replacement in older Pups; not only does it look miles better, but there's now no need for a re-boot to get sound sound working again. And if you also swap-over the Multiple-Sound-Card Wizard, too, it auto-resets to using the new card, as well.....again, without a re-boot.

In fact, I've found quite a few of the re-vamped utilities in the modern Pups will happily 'drop-in' to older Pups. It's a nice way of not only 'upgrading' abilities, but also 'smartening-up' their appearance, and making them look more up-to-date. Other candidates include the 'PuppyApps Default Applications Chooser', and also the 'EventManager'. These are all totally self-contained scripts, so nothing interferes with anything else.

I'm particularly pleased with the EventManager being 'transplantable'. I have a lot of drive icons on the desktop, and in the older Pups the EventManager wouldn't allow you to alter the spacing between 'em. With the new version, I now can.

'S all good fun, of course. I'm about to start investigating whether pMount will do the same.....though I suspect that one won't be quite as simple, somehow. We shall see.....

How to change the mouse pointer
in Puppy Linux shown in
Tahrpup64v.6.0.5.

[UPDATED VERSION LINK TO YOUTUBE]

How to Change Mouse Pointer in Puppy Linux Tahrpup64

This is for beginners, for the curious, but knowledgeable
users, this may be watched at 2x speed and 720pHD.
It is 5:40, but at double speed, it's only 2:50.

To change viewing speed, in YouTube, find the little
"gear" icon at the bottom of the video display, click on
it for a menu to edit the playback speed, resolution
quality, and other things.

Hope this is of some help. B'H.
