I would keep that in mind !mikhou wrote:Only since Lupu (after 4.3.1) has Puppy been Ubuntu based. Get an older copy of Puppy (4.3.1 or earlier) and you shouldn't have a problem. It's fast, runs completely in RAM, and is feature-packed. I keep one on a USB stick for troubleshooting cptrs.
Yeah but the Mandriva 2010.2 is stunning even though I can't browse the netmikhou wrote:Another thing about Puppy is that it's around 100MB download. You really owe it to yourself to give it a try.
After many beta test releases, Wary Puppy 5.0 was released on December 29, 2010, the first official public release. This is the first of my "Wary5" series of Puppy Linux, a "fifth generation" Puppy.There are two main reasons for this project:
1 Old hardware support
It has been argued that the Puppy 4.x series is the high-point of Puppy development, one reason being that it runs well on a very wide range of hardware. I wanted to move to a new software base (new libraries, compiler, kernel, drivers, applications) yet retain that hardware support.
2 Long term support
Just as the 4.x series is still in use, even though I originally compiled the base packages from source in November 2007, I would like to position Wary as the next long-term supported Puppy. Unlike most major distros that tend to be at the bleeding edge, Wary 5.x will stay as it is for the next 2 - 3 years with only bug fixes, incremental improvements and application upgrades when needed.
