Excuse for replying lately !

First of all I had to find out a lot more to #!crunchbang .
As many live-CDs it performed well first and after installation to HD it was a hell of a mess !
But before posting something ”half-true“ I had to dive deeper into it .
First I had to learn to produce .ISO -files and how to extract them to CD and I loaded a !#8.04.02-lite, a #!8.04.02-standard and a #!8.10.02-standard . I had to install everyone of them more than once .


The key for internet-connection is the .bin-program "nm-connection-editor" found f.ex. at /usr/bin .
The fedora10 I tried was having it too, but there was missing the third tab.

The post #7 at http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...tick-b-798202/ ..shows how to insert the required settings at the "GrUsI" I have to complete this too, but it is unfortunately also a matter of time .

The post #5 shows at the top details that are needed for the Puppy-4.3.1. -BB-Setup at the GUI . The letter-turner really is true but I used CDGCONT at Puppy and it worked .
(But also grubconfig produces sometimes crazy outcome . )

Crunchbang8.10.02 on ext3 with changed root,users and admin -properties and login-defaults I changed after first reboot at the Desktop-Menu-GUIs after "playing" around with “sudo passwd” and ”sudo passwd karl” and ”sudo passwd root” at xterm/terminator is in that stable now, that the computer can be resetted while Xserver-problems without recognizable harm to to #!OS .
DSL only supports ext2 at the moment and BB is obviously not available there .

And it is not so easy to get the provider DNS that is needed and evtl. PIN, PUK or “really existent passwords“ when you do not know the main provider of the company .


Puppy I had also loaded and burned and installed and it works without remarkable problems and has some very useful features. But a main thing is missing : “run command” in the Menu while R-Click on Drive .
And #!-appearance is more grown up but I have selected the “seagull-wallpaper“ at Puppy .
Puppy is a fine “easy-peasy” and worryless Linux !

And of course I would try live-DVD at home first .
Every afternoon/“FEIERABEND” I would make of course one session that can last easily up to 2 to 5 hours .......So in worst case it would take ø 2 weeks to get firm with such large collection .

This is what I found out by now .
Have a nice time !

Lightbulb PUPPY and #! installed and internet configurated with pupdial and nm

I downloaded #! 8.10.02 now and installed it on normal PC. Works fine on ext3 filesystem. I can use 'root' mode now without problems . I think I have done the first simple administrative tasks at the GUI "users-admin" that can be also invoked by typing users-admin into xterm console. The nm-applet and nm-connection-editor performed well. Half of the time I have to run google-search while exchanging data with the DNS of the internet service provider at connection start so the access is given. I have searched for scripts at /etc or at some /tmp and /locale and /home but unfortunately found none to insert here.

Two Puppy scripts/logs for 'pupdial' I can provide :

Welcome to PupDial, written by Barry Kauler for Puppy Linux.

There is a configuration file, /etc/wvdial.conf, that is read by
PupDial, and changes made to any of the above boxes will be saved
to wvdial.conf when you click the 'Exit' or 'Connect' buttons.
Note, you can also manually edit wvdial.conf with a text editor.

Some computers have two modems, perhaps one on the motherboard,
and Puppy may have detected the wrong one. In that case, click the
'probe' button. If it is still wrong, manually edit wvdial.conf.

"of course" I would start to explore the distributions I have some experience with first! But this is not always a good idea when you do not want to loose some good impressions you gained once.
And last not least: at #! I do not do so many writing mistakes here typing as I do on Lappy or windows (might be psychologically).
