Posted 11-07-2014 at 06:07 PM by exton (Exton's Blog)

I don't know how useful this info is for the average Puppy Linux user is, but today I have compiled a new perfect (as I think) 3.17.0 kernel for my PuppEX installed (not "frugal") system. I call it 3.17.0-puppex.

The kernel can be used in all newer 32 bit Puppy Linux "fully" installed systems. I.e. not "frugal" systems.

UEFI Drove Me Home... to Puppy

Posted 12-07-2013 at 04:14 PM by zaivala

OK, you read my last blog.

I tried everything. LinuxMint Olivia 64 wrote its entire self to my hard drive. But it would not boot. Still got Windoze, only used my D: (sda4) partition. Thought I'd try the latest Ubuntu.

I got about 4 steps into Ubuntu, NOT including saying "Install", and tried to back out as it did not have good options to select. Then I noticed I no longer had ANY WINDOWS. Contacted ASUS techs, and got no help. Was running Mint off a livedisk...

Puppy Wins the Printing Lottery

Posted 11-22-2009 at 08:51 PM by SrDorothy

The last time I posted about printing I thought my problems were solved with 2 Puppy boxes telling the Mepis box where the printer was...

But shortly after that, Mepis decided the printer was attached to a Puppy box, and of course couldn't print...again!

So now we have 3 Puppy boxes...and they all know where the printer is, woof!

Windows Secrets Touts Puppy Linux...!

Posted 03-22-2009 at 01:48 PM by SrDorothy
