4 USB

Hit F2 on bootup

then type >>>> puppy pmedia=usbflash

Make sure that you leave a space after >> puppy

Fluppy installer seems to do this automatically for USBs.

made an usb bootable everything worked correctly exept the fact that it was running on the usb and windows xp was still present filling the disk space...
my question is how can i erase windows xp and completely install linux puppy.

All what you need is bootup from USB and format your HDD using Gparted, then install Puppy on the HDD.

The question is:
  1. What file system is better to format the partition?
  2. Which is better FULL or FRUGAL install?
  3. How to configure the boot loader?

I know it is confusing for new commers to Puppy.
I do not give the answer here because i have the answer in LupQ.

By the way, I recommend Pupeee or Fluppy for eeepc's.

tazmod yes on mine it does. And I have had weird symtoms me worried about too.

So thanks for asking. What is it about?

http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=448145&sid=9d50f9406491d7804d2b805ad2d36ce7

Could you read that one and see if it helps? I am not good at grasping such texts

OK it appears I was being a bit paranoid. Embarassed

What now makes me laugh is I used it myself in firewallstate !!!

Reading down major(7)s blurb I now realise he was part of the icanhazip development.

It uses a script that parses your external ip address and returns it, however if you use the browser for the address it opens his 'man' page.

It seems that it is run by the network tray icon when you access the information.
It will do the same for firewallstate.

Someone else uses 'whatismyip' for a return in the ip, so that will throw up an address also.

I feel a bit of an idiot for not realising Embarassed

Jamalexa,

open Puppy Package Manager (menu>setup>setup puppy>). Configure it to show whichever Ubuntu Lucid repository has compiz, probably "main". Restart PPM, find your package and click on it.

There is appearing a new smartbook at the scene. It contains an Arm Snapdragon processor.

Is there a chance for a Puppy installation without greater issues?

ARM as you probably know is different to the x86 processor family
With greater compatibility with Larrys Lucid 'maverick' Puppy
and Ubuntu binaries and the continuing efforts of Iguleder and Puppy Squeeze, the potential for a Puppy running on ARM becomes more feasible
as Ubuntu and Debian already support ARM.

and also . . .
I am please to report I am back in Lucid and was able to watch an hour of streaming video with only one catch up point (not a crash)
This is great because I prefer Lucid but was having browser conflicts.

I did a major clean up just in case some scrpt or beta left over was
interfering - so far so good. Smile

. . . even more good news . . .
This morning my sister plugged in a new graphic tablet
and it worked out of the box in Puppy Lucid (the basic functions anyway)
She was impressed. Smile

PostPosted: Wed 06 Oct 2010, 17:06    Post subject: Request for comprehensive fix for Ayttm....  

We are still getting people with problems in #puppylinux with ayttm.

I request a full and comprehensive fix - to be released - one that either replaces ayttm with midori + webirc page or a fixed ayttm - OR include xchat as default.

I would also like to ask that all old releases 5.0 - 5.1 with broken ayttm be taken off the download site - and/or be patched with the before-mentioned fix.

I'm a regular Lucid 5.1.1 user - but having so many people complain & laugh & call Lucid crap is very, very dissapointing.

I think the puppylinux community can do better.

Paul

Have you tested the gnash Flash-replacement?

I have been trying it with Seamonkey in Fluppy 005.

It works ... sometimes.

PostPosted: Thu 07 Oct 2010, 17:16    Post subject: imagination 2.1 package  

I made a pet package for Imagination 2.1.
It will make a video presentation from images and sound.
It's basically a simple way to make a video.

I added libwavpack to make it work on Lucid Puppy.

Available here

http://www.datafilehost.com/download-f5bc0f90.html

It works on Lucid puppy. It has the translations for German
and Spanish included.
