puppy linux is very slow on my machine:
I tried DSL but the kernel is not sufficient for a usb card readesr. I need a 2.6 kernel whihc is by debian;
I try this making pendrive but not working
tested "Copying the files - the more flexible way" : not working
results : blinking cursor at usb plop boot.
it hangs at boot of usb pendrive as seeen above, booted with plop floppy
:~$ qemu -hda /dev/sdb # not working
:~$ qemu -hda /dev/sdb1 # working !!
but when I use the plop and the real PC i486, I get : same result as /dev/sdb above
so I did :
and not working either
I would like to have linux !!
