USB Sound Card + Puppy Linux 430

Posted 11-22-2009 at 09:08 PM by SrDorothy

One of our volunteers has a Sony Vaio tiny laptop (the type now known as 'netbook'), several years old, given to her by a friend-- but with the hard drive removed (presumably to protect data). She had been using Knoppix, but couldn't get online. So...I set her up with Puppy Linux 430 on a CD + a USB flash drive for saving the pup_save file. Worked great.

One of the terrific things about Puppy is that it has a great record of getting connected to the Internet via modem (even some...

Installing Slackware 12.2 On An Old Dell Laptop - Part VII

Posted 11-22-2009 at 03:40 PM by stuartd

I guess this is an end to this blog.

In the end I gave up on Slackware 12.2 and downloaded and installed Slackware 13. It works and has got the network.

I really don't know what was happening with 12.2 and I'm disappointed to have had to give up, but I have a lot of studying to do and can't spare the time to work at making the laptop work.

What I miss is learning how that interface stuff works at a fundamental level because I would like to understand...
