Well,let me think.......I have over 20 Puppy installs on this old test box, with 8 or 10 different kernels between the different Pup's.My first choice would probably be to stay with the 2.6.30.5 kernel.......it seems to be a good balance between newer and older hardware.

2.14x has the 2.6.18 kernel while Lucid and the new Dpup have 2.6.33.2 (and maybe newer) so that might be a good middle ground.

Or you could just use your best judgment and surprise everyone..... Laughing

frankly I don't care Razz ......

as long as: Laughing

Priority 1:- all dialup modems (inc winmodems),

Priority 2:- sat via ethernet,

Priority 3:- and wireless 3g modems

can equally work. Wink A 4.31 at least I would think.

smp would be nice to make use of those extra "bits" but is it necessary for a beta test version?

Very Happy

Hi ttuuxxx

Is it possible to make the kernel fit the software? giving people a choice of what kernel is best for their hardware, I think at the moment there is at least 16 official kernel pets (in woof) that I have found. couldnt we treat them as addons, similar to what barry did with wary? then have the same basic operating system that would work for almost everybody no matter what hardware they were using? (instead of the traditional way of building the software around the kernel and limiting peoples choices)

Just an idea (no idea how to make it work)

Another thought;

If you have the time and inclination you may also consider asking Zigbert to "do you a DuDE" and make it your primary desktop.

Having just had an intro to it, it walks all over standard JWM, VERY professional.

regards

2.6.30.5 has good support for modems. Lucid Puppy with 2.6.33.2 and latest woof has lost that good support based on many threads and questions I have found. It would be good that there would be updated official Puppy to where point people.

OKay, what just happened?

Last I read, RC3 had some xvesa and miscellaneous issues and now there's a new release and a new thread.

I'm confused. Is the new thread the 'official' 4.3.2?

I realize this is a mostly dead thread now that the software was abandoned, but can anybody suggest a devx to use with this 4.3.2 v3 OS version?


I don't want to re-OS all of our computers at this point, and really don't know what I'd want to replace it with anyway. The "new" 4.3.2 looks to be worse, and languishing without support as well


So a usable devx for this original version anybody?

Hello vtpup

I am running 432v3 (albeit a remaster)
and from checking the md5sum of the devx i use devx_432.sfs,
it appears that it is just a renamed copy of the devx_431.sfs as posted here
md5sum = e46aebe00b8aff2cac57e517336e45d7

I can't remember if i read somewhere to do that, or if ttuuxxx suggested that i do it,
whatever the reason was, it has worked OK for me so far.

I also use the kernel_src-2.6.30.5-patched.sfs4.sfs file, as posted here (usual username/password combo required)
md5sum = 41295d904ff54043ee0d332443392b20

Hope this helps
CatDude

Too bad this one wasn't "finished."

I'm happy to stay with it for now -- seems solid as a rock -- isn't XVESA support the only real problem outstanding? Other than calling it "Done"?
