Excuse my linux ignorance but is there reason why Fatdog is based on Puppy rather than Tiny Core linux.

I ask as Tiny core runs in ram and you can install apps with out the need for pet files.

Explanation in idiot terms please. Very Happy

Hi Yoni,

The reason I haven't commented on pipeline fix is because I've not had one single glitch , tear or ripple even without it. Wink
My machine is i3 3220 with 6gb ram. I don't have a separate graphics card, I am using onboard graphics. But it's good to know the fix will be included in next release. By that time I might have a nice graphics card.

The only problem I had with FD64-631 was when I USB tethered my droid it failed connect. I just replaced network-setup.sh from 630 to 631, and problem was solved.


@ Abdulrahman,
Fatdog is not "based" on puppy, it has "Evolved" from puppy. So that's why it's still a puppy in the heart.
As far as I know it is based on T2. Built with puppy woof scripts.
I really don't know difference between Puppy and Tiny Core.

If you like, open a thread with name "Difference and Similarities Puppy vs Tiny core", in Off topic sub section. There we might get more answers.

My question was aimed at James and Kirk as the developers and there choice rather than a generic question based on differences. Smile

Neerajkolte is right. Fatdog originally was a Puppy derivative, but as it matured it grew farther and farther (in terms of implementation) from Puppy/Woof but continues to keep the Puppy spirit. Today's Fatdog is its own independent distribution, no longer considers Puppy Linux as its "upstream", but freely exchanges ideas and applications with Puppy Linux where possible and makes sense. For more details: http://distro.ibiblio.org/fatdog/web/history.html. That being said, I'd like to emphasise that Fatdog owes its existence to Puppy Linux. Both myself and kirk were Puppy Linux users long before Fatdog was conceived, and if Puppy didn't exist, neither would Fatdog.

As for why Fatdog originated from Puppy and not Tiny Core, I thought it is obvious by looking at their birth dates:
---
Puppy Linux was started in 2003.
Fatdog was started in 2008.
Tiny Core was started in 2009.

Without wishing to put words into Abdulrahman mouth i'm guessing by his comment on standard linux installs over PET files he means as Fatdog has progressed and envolved rather than where is started to why it hasn't moved onto tiny core as it's base rather than T2.

I wouldn't want FatDog to change to standard installs as it's more secure that people need to use PET files or load DevX to change or install anything.

Your average script kiddie trying to root a FatDog box would be totally lost when there commands and scripts don't work.

Try this
Code:
/etc/rc.d/rc.firewall stop
This firewall taskbar icon really does need a "turn off" feature as @01Micko provides.

Hope this helps

You can do that in the fatdog control panel, the multicolored cube in the panel starts the control panel.

I haven't found any earlier post on this, so does anyone successfully use Google Earth with FD64? I generally use 630.

The only package I find to use is: google-earth-stable_current_amd64.deb

I haven't been able to make it run. Any help will be appreciated!

Hi Bindee,

I have no knowledge of any scripting or programming languages. Also I am using Linux for just 4 months.
I couldn't decipher the errors I got after I installed the pet.
I have posted the errors on page 27 I haven't got any reply from anyone yet so no progress yet.

Any way when I compiled it from source tarball it worked for me.

I have enrolled in a edx.org's course on Linux which starts tomorrow. I hope to get educated soon.

Edit: Oops I got the date mixed up. The course starts on 1st August, one month away.
