wow jemimah with all the effort and advances you made for puppeee its a real shame you just tossed the towel in like that, I really respected the effort and work you put into it, I don't own a eeepc but I did read about it on your threads. Well I just hope you might find another project soon to work on. Looking forward to your next efforts.

Haha, if you give an over-achieving INTJ an impossible task that can never be finished, something's gotta give at some point or the universe implodes.

My current obsession is shopping, since I lost 30 pounds (courtesy of my post-puppeee obsession, weightloss) and nothing fits anymore I have to replace my entire wardrobe. However I am starting to get a little bored with that. I've been considering how I can contribute to Puppy in a less time consuming way that won't compromise my health/career/sanity/marriage.

I may end up just contributing to woof development if Barry will take my patches. I'd also be open to working on collaborative projects if there are any talented devs with good communication skills and a compatible vision.

I'm not good at being only moderately obsessed with something which is why I probably shouldn't work large projects by myself. I simply can't be the main person responsible to maintain a whole os, a whole website, and a whole package repo. It's insane.

insanity is doing the same thing over
and over and expecting different results
Code:

do
this_new_version_will_save_the_world
 
it_will_need_all_these_bug_free_new_apps

fix_all_the_new_problems_people_have_in_the_forum

explore_all_the_new_fun_things_to_do_and_learn

# a new command is given this day for linux
never done


I guess we are all a bit guilty of this Very Happy

Hey jemimah
I am glad all is well with you welcome back

I am not from Florida but lived in Florida from 1981 -1997
then returned two more years
in 2005 I really miss being on the lake fishing

Dept of In sanity here . . . Wink
The methods may be crazy but the results are brilliant . . . Cool

Congratulations on the weight loss Very Happy
Exercise? Diet? Drugs? Padlock on the cooky jar? Shocked



How do we come together and ensure no developer burnout Crying or Very sad
and the revival of Saluki which inspired so many . . . ?
http://puppylinux.org/wikka/Puppy6

For Lucid
and Slacko
and for PARM (Puppy's must ambitious project)
http://puppylinux.org/wikka/PARM
we have BarryK working for the team
as well as on Wary, Racy and Quirky

Iguleder too is working both at the forefront
and with scripts that will compile for the Puppy store of bones
Pemasu manages to add, polish with many tips gained from Jemimah
Technosaurus has his own blog that is inspiring with tips
http://bashismal.blogspot.com/
Ttuuxxx has shown tremendous support and updating of the 2 series Puppy and I have not even mentioned Fatdog and the puplets . . .

One method is the relay stick.
Basically one month, one developer.
As many ISO test releases (hopefully at least one)
as preferred and then on to the next obsessive . . . Shocked
How do we make that work?
Anyone like to trial a month for Puppy 6?

Woof Woof Smile

Puppeee is a wonderful distribution and I thank Jemimah for putting forth the time and effort. It was the best distro for my Eee pc 900 at the time and everything worked so well.

The later Lucid Puppy, and now Slacko Puppy also works fine for my netbook. Every one who has an Eee pc should give it a try. I think the need for a separate Puppy derivative for the Eee pc is now no longer necessary, with such fine main editions.

Too many heroes to list in the land of Puppy Development, but jemimah will always remain one of mine. I use her puppeee exclusively on my eee 900, 22-second cold boot to desktop, and she even taught me how to compile, allowing for updated bluetooth file transfer.

Grateful, I am,
Jake

kenh and jakfish please share how it is installed.


I want to install puppeee 4.4 on my Asus EeePC 900
that have a 16GB SSD or what ever them are named.

PS Lobster asked "How do we come together and ensure no developer burnout"

When I told people that wanted to be active in the Puppy User Group
that it is very likely or too easy to create developer burnout them
thought me was crazy. I trust it is more common than one want to admit.

I run it off an external sd card. Why install it to your internal drive? Especially since the 16GB SD drive of the EEE is notoriously slow. The original 8GB/4GB, or the 20GB version, is much quicker.

Perhaps use the 16GB for a Windows installation of some version, then you have double-boot.

Jake, so the internal 16GB SD is slower than an outer USB?
I am not sure what you refer to when you say you have an external SD
Did you have it in a case with a USB then or in the slot in the side?

I still have not found a single example on how to do the menu.lst
for a puppy that is frugally installed on the 16GB internal hdd
what is the name for it? sda1 or sdb2 or sda1 or sda2 or what?
Is it named pmedia=sdflash or what

I said "external" because there is an internal ssd drive, and I didn't want to confuse the two--although, it appears I did Smile

For convenience, I use an 4GB sd card in the slot, and boot from there (as you know, in the eee BIOS, you can choose the boot order of devices).

But the 16GB ssd got very bad reviews based on its speed, and other than storage, or perhaps to hold a second OS, it's probably slower than a class 6 sd card.

But I do not know this for certain, since I don't own this model. But I'm *fairly* certain, given the reading I did on it on the eee forum.

Yes it is me dense.
The external SD is the one internal in the slot but
sure that is external only that is almost invisible to
anybody not knowing it is there Smile

I don't trust that I have any version 6 it is the cheapest
possible and not even I bought it either. Found it in scrapbox.

Put a flavor of jemimah's puppeee on your sd card, choose xvesa rather than xorg, and your set-up will hum along nicely.

I use an alpha kernel of hers (missing many drivers, but she set it up for a modified 4.31 OS) and ttuuxx's 432.sfs, and I'm very happy.

If you do choose xvesa to shorten boot time, you may have to re-run xorg wizard and choose xorg if you wish to watch video. xvesa has trouble with mplayer, at least.

I do not use grub. Usually, I use unetbootin and the iso on a Windows machine. Will puppy's universal installer set up an sd card? Or does it only do usb?

I don't know I used a manual install on the same place that Xandros boot from instead.

I try to explain

I have reused their own boot and it took me this whole day to set up
due to me know so little and had to improvise.,
But now I write from within snow puppy 5 on my Asus eeepc 900
and booting frugally from same sd hd that them use for User
the otehr one only had some 500MB free while User have 12GB out of 16 GB.

So now I can add any puppy and also maybe Linux Mint using frugal but I don't trust that LM 12 can refrain from writing often?

Booting puppy frugally I hope it does not write so often but I have to check up on this somewhere?

I get back with code

One find the menu.lst on sda1 if one are booted in puppy while it is named 2.0 or something in boot loader for xandros don't know hy.

#
# Configured by Xandros Configuration system.
#
# hiddenmenu
# Boot automatically after 1 second.
timeout=10


# default boot entry
default=10


# Fallback to Configure.
# fallback=2


title Snow Puppy Linux 5 FireFox 3.6.23 1024x768 JWM. nolapic
root (hd0,1)
kernel /snowpuppy5/vmlinuz psubdir=snowpuppy5 puppy i915.modeset=1 nosmp pfix=fsck
initrd /snowpuppy5/initrd.gz


title Normal Boot
root (0x80,0)
kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.21.4-eeepc quiet rw vga=785 irqpoll root=/dev/sda1
initrd /boot/initramfs-eeepc.img

So I had to change how them do time out default but I improvised because I had not knowledge. This works but looks ugly.

so root (hd0,1) while Xandros are on root (hd0,0) but them
deplacing 80 byte or something. ???
