Hey Guys, I think I know what Don's problem with the download was.....

I have Noscript on Firefox, and get the same result as Don, unless I click 'temporarily allow this page' - so it's either Flash or Java missing/turned off, AFAIK

john biles, Roy, & Aitch:

Thank you for your help I can now access the MediaFire site and get a download if I allow MediaFire in NoScript. Part of the problem I was having is because I use the FirePup browser -- it's fast, but it's a little outdated.

I can now run ProZilla other than I can't seem to get a userame or password to work right. I don't understand "Hostname -- localhost Port -- 3128" which are pre-entered in the Preference Panel for Proxies. Failure to get this right eliminates the www.meownplanet download site.

So far getting this huge download has been like herding cats.

Hello don922,
I tried to see if anyone else is hosting Legacy OS and found this dodgy looking Russian site hosting Legacy OS may be you can also do a search to find new download links.

Hello Sylvander,
WOT? are you saying the site is good or bad?

Hello smokey01,
Thank you for hosting! Maybe don922 can finally download an iso that matches the md5sum.

Hello bodbozzle,
What make and model of PC / Laptop do you own and how old is it?
Do you know the make and model of the CD / DVD Drive installed?
With over 7000 downloads there's been few complaints of booting problems.

PostPosted: Mon 20 Sep 2010, 00:43    Post_subject: Bad Downloads!!!
Sub_title: md5sum bad!!!
 

I have downloaded Legacy OS one & a piece more times from SoftPedia (the partial download failed about 3/4 way through and would not resume). This was downloaded with ProZilla, but the md5sum failed on the complete download.

I have downloaded Legacy OS one time from the Smokie01 website with pwget and the md5sum failed. I had to use pwget because I can not get ProZilla to work with the required username and password.

I couldn't find where to download (free) on the freshwap website. It may have a good rating -- it seems flacky to me.

Meanwhile, I was able to download and got good md5sums on Puppy214X-RC5.iso and minipup2.02.iso as a test to determine if I could sucessfully download an iso.

I think the trouble I am having with Legacy OS must be due to it's size.

Hello John,
Legacy OS booted on an other PC.
It looks beautiful and it takes more time to explore.
Sorry for causing confusion.
I tried booting Legacy OS on an eee 1000H although it was not intended for that.
(eee and external usb drive)
Thanks a lot!

booted OK on my Athlon 64 dual processor
It was slow to boot as it is large (seemed 2-3 minutes boot)
and maybe that could be fixed by using Puppy pfix=noram
during boot (if available)

Seems a lot to explore including tutorials and documentation
and a host of programs Cool

PostPosted: Fri 24 Sep 2010, 21:16    Post_subject: legacy booted on a couple of desktops  

Legacy ran on a couple of generic desktop PCs

P4 1.6 GHz w/ 768 MB RAM and a Matrox G550 video card.

Celeron D 2.8 GHz, AOpen mobo, 1.5 G RAM, nvidia 64MB GeForce 4 MX440.

On both machines it booted into RAM, quite snappily on the Celeron, but took a while on the P4.

Also tried on a ThinkPad Z60m with i915, 1.86 GHZ Pentium M, 1G RAM. This booted but took 5 minutes + I think, didn't time it. Will try again to give a more precise timing. This machine has a slightly oddball arrangement wrt the hard drive iirc, the mobo is sata but the disk is plain old ide with some kind of adapter between them.

G'day John Biles/Van Gaans !

First of all, let me thank you for your work on Legacy OS and your motivation for doing it, as I LOVE using Linux to give a second life to old hardware (after all, Earth does NOT ONLY belong to the one(s) who pay(s) the bills !). Smile


I tried Legacy OS 2010 on a +/- year 2000 Toshiba Satellite Pro 4600 laptop (Pentium III 700MHz, 512MB RAM, 40GB HDD), and while it DOES BOOT, it hangs after the Xorg/Xvesa graphics server choice. Sad

I've opened a topic on that subject here : http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=60425.


I also gave it a try on a more recent Toshiba Tecra A4 (Pentium M 740 1.73GHz, 1024 MB RAM, 80GB HDD), and it boots and runs flawlessly. Smile

Just updating last post about the ThinkPad Z60m, keeping an eye on the time it took 6 minutes or more to get a desktop. Slowest of the machines I have tried for some reason, 1.86 GHZ and 1G RAM so not challenged for CPU or memory.
