Wary Puppy 5.1.3 installs correctly on Oracle Virtual Box 4.1.1
Use a LiveCD ISO file. Insert it in the VM CD drive and alt-ctrl-del the VM from the VM menu bar.
X windows is not available with Wary Puppy 5.1.3
VBox requires an S3 Trio or VESA 2.0 video driver.
Puppy command line appears to work corrrectly. Not tested beyond verifying that it was a working copy of Puppy as I am trying for a VM with X Windows that will allow me to use internet on host and guest simultaneously.
VBox hijacks my Belkin Wireless adapter preventing the Host OS from using it.
Just completed a Puppy install on VMWare Player.
Under VMWare Player Wary Puppy 5.1.3 installs with no problems (LiveCD again) shares the network connection with the host and runs X Windows (using XVESA at the moment)
Reviving an old thread, but I would have been very happy to have this info a few days ago
