hi connor

During the week I don't have much free time to build a new version based on wary, but I would say by the end of the weekend I should have something for you. so let me get this straight, you don't need a browser, abiword, gnumeric right? How a media player?, if I remove those 4 thing, it would reduce the size overall by a good number.

Haha Will see if i can change my username!

My Laptop is IBM Lenovo X61s 2Ghz & 2Gb Ram

I can run near enough all distro's so puppy 4.0 should be fine, i just prefer small lightweight distros as they are small insize and work on alot of computers.


That should run virtually anything.

I run 5.28 on a 1.6 GHz laptop, with 1 GB RAM.

That's a bit light on memory. You'd want a swap drive/partition with that. I typically use the rule that you need at least 512MB RAM+swap (on my old laptop, I have 256MB RAM, 512MB swap). But that's a 333MHz, so it's a bit underpowered for big versions of Puppy.

Yours, being a desktop, could probably take more memory. Perhaps PC100? See if you can get it up around 512MB, it would work pretty well. I ran a 900 Althon with 384MB (3x128MB) for some time, but later bumped it with a 900 eee Netbook that has 1GB, and comparable computation power.

Edit: have you tried some of the others: Wary, 5.25 Retro, or ttuuxxx's 2.14?

Also, I originally ran 4.12 Retro on my old 333 Laptop.

My most powerful is a 5 (6? 7?) year old 3200 Athlon tower, with 2GB RAM. It smokes...

My main machine is a 2200 Athlon tower, with 1 GB RAM.

I worked on it all weekend about 30hrs or so, should of studied for my test this Thursday, but I guess I'll study each day after work for a few hrs, anyways I have 3 out of 4 formats working with gui's, My working compiling directory is over 400mb, lol languages like python,gambas,sdl but I ditched the python, and gambas, i'm trying to get everything to run on C,gtk2, or sdl.that way it will keep it small, python just adds tons of bloat, around 30MB, so python is out. The only one left is gba. I'll try to finish this week but it might stretch into the next weekend. Hope not but work, family comes first Smile

removing abiword,gnumeric,seamonkey saved 50mb expanded, the 3 emulator's so far with sdl is around 6mb expanded, the end result should be a iso around 110mb-111m

I recently compiled Zsnes 1.51 in Solidpup ( Wary 5.11 based ).
It works in Slacko 5.3.3. I don't have the latest Wary installed, so testing for that version is needed.

oh ya I added some rom mimes for main roms Snes, Nes, Sega and Gba but other mines could be added for other sega formats. So when you click on the roms they autostart.

Your welcome I think I covered everything you initially asked for. If you improve it or add features, like open sourced roms that can be found at sourceforg I could upload the iso to the server I use.
but never include any illegal rom images, we have to keep linux legit.

have fun Smile
