LOW Ram on Puppy


Hi,
I have installed Puppy 4.12 onto a 4GB usb drive. It boots OK, but it is
not as fast as when I booted from a CD, can't use the CD because my Acer
laptop no longer reads the drive. When Puppy is loaded I get an error
message across the top of the screen saying WARNING:Personal storage file getting full, strongly recommend you resize it or delete files!
together with that the laptop is showing the ram memory as 0M free.

I would appreciate any help or suggestions!

Thanks.

There is a tool that can resize your pup_save file. I don't remember where it is offhand, because I'm not on Puppy at the moment. Look around and read the menus, there is an entry that says something like, "Resize Pup Save File" or something like that. I recently resized my pup_save file and it works just fine and now I have more room for my stuff.

If you need more help, there's always the puppy forums too: http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/
