Elive most likely is still pay if you want to install it properly.
Or have they changed policy? Live is free but then it is not easy
to make it remember country and time settings and keyboard
like setxkbmap se have to be used to get åäö Smile

TinyCore has cone from discouraging of NTFS install to accepting NTFS OOTB but still warning about it. So that is a huge difference. From impossible for a complete noob to install frugal to NTFS hdd to at having a possibility to do it.

Cloud could work if one have it as complement to Puppy. That way if the cloud is down one would still be able to use the progs one already installed on the hdd.

Yes there is a risk that cloud will dominate. There is a trend but do we really know for how long it will last? Maybe the hard ware makers decide without asking us? Smile

Yea, you need to pay if you want to install it.

I only tested it out on live CD, which is free.

That may be very true for most people, since most people live in cities with good internet access, but there are still people living out in the boondocks with dial up or worse. For those folks, the cloud is more like the fog.

I almost forgot. I've been running Xubuntu from the hard drive and Puppy from cd. Xubuntu dual boots with a copy of XP, but I haven't actually booted XP except to see that it works.

Thanks BigNono1

Did you see this one?


title Porteus OS Log in as root Passw is toor then do startx
rootnoverify (hd0,0)
kernel /porteusboot/vmlinuz rw changes=/porteus/slaxsave.dat
initrd /porteusboot/initrd.lz

I renamed boot to porteusboot that way I can have other boots from other OS also booting up that way.

this part changes=/porteus/slaxsave.dat allow one to have a porteus slax save file but one need to prepare it as them describe somewhere in a text file. It is the same as for all Slax variations so if one have other slax booting them compete using the same save. Not good Smile

Thanks James C , yes doing url is sometimes challenging due to them can have spaces in the end or them are long and the software split off the first [ url ] so there is a line break and if one edit that linebreak then it usually get alright

Well, if this is what under a rock is like.....there's a lot of sky Wink

Cloud is for people who want corporate dominance, copyright protection and control, and finance crashes engineered to bankrupt you, whilst they profit from it

Hi Aitch! Nice to finally meet you here in-
http://www.murga-linux.com

However, I noticed a small 'glitch' in one of your posts (and I must say, you have a lot ot posts!) but not to fret... it's probably only something on your http://www.murga-linux.com SOFTWARE (installed on your computer.)

As for the 'glitch' it appears you don't realize you are using 'Cloud Computing' at its very finest everytime you use John Murga's Puppy Forum !!! Wink

PostPosted: Fri 22 Jul 2011, 19:56    Post_subject: Kanotix Linux (KDE)  

I just recently tried out the newest "Kanotix" (Debian-based from Germany). I was really surprized to see that my old legacy nvidia card was installed automatically with the first boot ! And it came with Wine, even. I had it on a 7 yr old Dell desktop....so the KDE was a bit much. I took my Debian DVDs and was able to add the LXde desktop on it,....but I was surprised to discover that Kanotix wouldn't install very much of anything else from the DVDs, They added correctly in Synaptic,.....but a lot of the apps just wouldn't install.
....Kanotix is pretty interesting, though. Not as usable for me like a Puppy is, though.

Also,...I've been using Wary,..but never could find a legacy nvidia driver for it. I just switched to Macpup,...and adding the 96.43.19 nvidia driver was a snap (couldn't have been easier!!).

I am currently posting from PCLOS "Phoenix Edition". It uses XFCE 4.8. It detects my TP-LINK wireless usb adapter out of the box. I haven't been able to get this wireless to work in puppy.
