Puppy Linux Community Home - Getting Started. Puppy Linux. Da Wikipedia, l'enciclopedia libera. Puppy Linux è una distribuzione GNU/Linux Live CD creata da Barry Kauler nel 2003, rivolta alla facilità di utilizzo e al limitato consumo di risorse di sistema. Storia[modifica | modifica sorgente] SeaMonkey, AbiWord e MineSweeper in esecuzione su Puppy Linux 2.13 Puppy linux venne sviluppato per la prima volta da Barry Kauler, che pubblicò la versione 0.1 il 18 giugno del 2003.

La versione di Puppy 2.14 (86,5 MB) utilizzava SeaMonkey come internet suite (principalmente come web browser e e-mail client). La prima serie di Puppy gira agevolmente su hardware molto datato. A marzo 2013 l'ultima versione è la 5.5, denominata Slacko in relazione alla compatibilità dei suoi file binari con Slackware ma è anche disponibile una versione compatibile con i DEB package di Ubuntu[2]; al momento è disponibile una versione in italiano derivata dall'originale.

How NOT to install Puppy Linux (to hard disk) How NOT to install Puppy Linux Impatient? Jump to frugal install to hard disk Or get Windows installer Puppy is easy to use and does not require a hard disk, so the first trick that you must know is how NOT to install it to hard disk ! BOOT FROM CD/DVD - Just boot using the CD/DVD and save to USB flash (you will be asked at shutdown to save or not).

If you choose "Save", Puppy will create your save file and use this next time you boot so that you can continue with your previous work. The save file will be named pup_save.2fs (you can add a SPECIALNAME during the first save to make it pup_save-SPECIALNAME.2fs). Well, if you really have to make an install to hard disk, use a two-minute install called frugal install or use the familiar Windows installer. Frugal Install to Hard Disk A frugal install works this way: First, a boot directory will have to be created in your chosen partition. Note that menu.lst is common to both installs. The ultimate solution? Many qestions about using Puppy. Hi, abless. Although I agree with a lot of what Semme says, I feel it's a bit harsh to just call it a 'rescue disk'.

There's a lot of folks running this particular 'rescue disk' as their 'daily driver'.....myself included..! I run a total of 12 of them. Drunkjedi is also correct about the need for the 'devx' package; this contains everything Pup needs to compile with. As I understand it, Puppy's version of 'bash' is customised for Puppy's specific use; this is why many of the standard 'bash' commands just don't compute, as far as Pup's concerned.....they simply aren't in its vocabulary. There's two main ways to install stuff in Puppy, normally. If you've never used Linux before, the whole concept of the 'package manager' takes some getting used to. Drivers are almost all included in the kernel by default.

This is why Semme suggests the 'big boys'.....because these all utilise the 'standard' version of Bash that is used, or referred to, by so many blogs on the web. ...and this one, too:- Many qestions about using Puppy.

You may find the answer to a question by doing a search of the Puppy Discussion Forum or the Wiki. The Wiki also has a FAQ page: HowToUsePuppy I have answered just a few common questions on this page.Page updated: June 3, 2013. Q: New user I have just burnt Puppy (to CD) and booted him.

Could you advise what I should do next to properly learn how to setup, configure and get the best out of Puppy? I recommend two things: explore the menu and find out what is there, and go to "Menu -> Help" in the menu (see "Menu" button bottom-left of screen) and read through the HOWTO documents. If you can't find out how to do something, and wireless networking comes to mind, go to the Wiki or search the Forum. Wiki URL: Main Forum: Q: How do I save my personal files and settings? Puppy will create a single file, named <something>save.3fs (the "something" differs with different puppies), in which to save your personal data. Not at all! # . ROX Filer.
