Moo won't remaster any Pup that is a pre-woof build, such as Akita, Puplite, TurboPup, 2.14X and others. The major difference between Moo and Woofy is that Woofy is missing some woof specific features, but let's you manually edit the filesystem instead.

Akita is indeed beta, but only cos I don't really have any specific plans for it.
I use it everyday as my main OS, it's about as stable as any other pup.

If you do go with Puplite, please bear in mind it's not perfect..

- JWM themes need checking - all theme stuff is in the file 'jwm-personal', where it could go into an actual JWM theme file instead.

- IceWM won't work out of the box.. Can't remember what needs changing, but if you post the errors, I'm sure I'll remember.

- I always post details changes when I update stuff, so go through the forums threads to learn more... Including the Puppy Arcade 8/9/10 threads... Cos that is what Akita and Puplite are based on...

Also.... I think I might know why Akita boots slow for you - Akita gets the drive labels at boot, it can be slow on really old PCs... Exit to prompt (Ctrl-Alt-Backspace) and run:

Code:
chmod -x /etc/initd.d/rc.jwm_drives /etc/init.d/rc.pup_event_frontend_d /usr/sbin/create_jwm_drives.sh


Then run X again, should be much faster to load up the desktop fully.

...oh.

I'll be sticking with Woofy, then, and I'll give Akita a try.

don570, and everyone else, if you could look at my last post... I'm going to develop a new version based on either Puplite5 or Akita... it will be a couple days, but it WILL happen.

...I'm done with TurboPup. That thing's a mess.

If you choose Akita the number one thing you should try to
improve is compatibility to the Windows hard drive formatting NTFS

Scottman has avoided addressing this issue, so it has
a limited use Crying or Very sad

If you think I know how to do something that technical, I'm sorry to report that you're rather mistaken! I can barely use Woofy...

I don't even know what doesn't work regarding ntfs on akita, im not avoiding anything... i can create, and use ntfs partitions fine... although there is sometimes a warning saying things failed to copy, but it's harmless... and it can be fixed simply by downgrading to ntfs-3g from pup4 repo.

Good to know.

...I think I have enough command of Woofy to know how to strip the current NTFS thingy out and replace it with ntfs-3g... figure out where the files are, stick 'em in the del-list, and make sure that one of the new packages is the ntfs-3g pet.

Hm. It looks like you're not the only one "cross-posting". I already answered this guy on LinuxMusicians.org.

I added a link to the thread you mentioned.

Sorry to derail the thread, Starhawk!

PostPosted: Wed 12 Sep 2012, 22:17    Post subject: Going to a retro-machine  

I'm currently in the process of build an ultimate P3 box:

1.4S Tualatin on an Asus TUV4X mobo with 1.5gb of PC133 SDRAM
TEAC DVD WRW drive
NVidia GeForce 4 Ti 4600 AGP 4x card
Basic Sound Card
120 gb Maxtor HDD/5400 rpm EIDE

Might go with Puplite 5.0 or Akita on a CF-IDE 16gb drive as a master with the Maxtor as a slave drive.

Has anybody had any success with running these Puppy's on a CF-IDE drive?
