Oh, sorry, now that I mounted it I see it has pup_202.sfs so it's not the 1.05 version after all...
Uploaded iso anyway, it's here

Hi

Would it be this one ?
if so, then according to the boot splash image the file name is puppy-1.0.5-mozilla-128Mb-Murga.iso
and it appears that forum member RetroTechGuy did have a copy.

So i have PM'd him asking if he could upload a copy and provide a link in this thread.

Fingers crossed
CatDude

I hope your truck doesn't get hailed on anyways, Ted Dog Wink

Raining where we are. FedEx left me a MiFi4620L, packaging and all, in a bag in the rain this morning. No water damage, thankfully... called FedEx and complained tho b/c that's just stupid. I *do* have a front porch...

Meanpup?

Those discussions about an very old Puppy versions are for other forum fans not very attractive without some comments: can somebody explain what were the most interesting figures from that Puppy? Were mean Puppy the name of the 50-MB-check-card-CD Puppy ab. 1.05 perhaps (I certainly have the ISO, but where....?).

greetings



I have yet somewhere an

- ISO of Puppy 1.n with integrated OO 1.0 (without Abi + without Gnumeric)
- ISO of Puppy 2.0 or 2.2 with integrated OO
- CD/RW with Puppy on it able to run (and to save all OS + own stuff on the CD/RW without to need some HD. I did use this as my HD was not operable any more Wink . but I don't know if it is possible to rebuild an ISO with it and how to do that. I thing it was probably a 1.04 or 1.05 and I suppose that also the remastering from Dougal did not exist at this time?
- the micro-Puppy from MU 11 MB. it is running but not really willing any more to manage correctly the internet (did the HTML language change between this time?)

meanpup was unique for its time and demonstrated the idea of individual compressed executables using upx in a RAM disk.

Very Happy Hello,
Somewhere amongst my many hard drives I have it.
If I can find it I'll post it, and yes its 50 megabytes.
But I'm betting John will post it first since it was his..

I think the idea was lean & mean Wink ... not sure if it was teh 1.05 version or the 2.02 version but one of them had angry penquins as the boot image I thought it was rather inspired Very Happy Edit: Yeah CatDude that is the one.

Not to mention the floating gnu wallpaper is one of my favorites.. wish there was a widescreen version of it.

Also at least the 1.05 version required 128Mb ran to run since it unpacked into ram. More modern puppies don't unpack entirely unless you pass a kernel parameter (well the last it tried anyway back around the first release of puppy 4.0 or so).

Part of the advantage of puppy back in the day at least was that it could be loaded entirely into ram and you could use your CD/DVD drive again. Nowadays booting off USB is more ideal for me at least since it makes it customizable.

I agree cb88 it was a nice idea. scripts where compressed by the normal gz in the initrd and the executables where stored in a self unpacking format upx. I was investigating doing the same idea with Fatdog64. But the size of memory and speed loading from bluray made that a low reward effort. Still a good idea. wonder what zram could do.
Cool

I seem to recall taht Meanpup 1.05 was using the iCandy Jr theme for mozilla also... LOL I rather liked it as well.

I'm not sure I even know anyone with a bluray drive in thier computer.... to expensive Wink

I imagine read speeds are quite good though... and speaking of small distros Slitaz 5.0 is supposed to be released sometime soon I've always found that it puts up pretty good competition for puppy distros.
