There is nothing in principle stopping you from building a 2.4 kernel for Puppy 2.01.

In practice, there are some issues with UnionFS under 2.4 kernels, and Puppy 2.01 depends heavily on UnionFS.

Would running your app under Puppy 109CE or GrafPup 1.04 be an option? They both use 2.4 kernels.

This topic has just come up in the official forum linked at by the way, you can find more discussion there.

I don't think you can just compile a 2.4 kernel and run it.

When Barry swiched to the 2.6 kernel he had to re-write some of the startup scripts, to fit the eccentricities of 2.6, so you might have some problems with them (might be only HW detection, though).

My best advice would be to either stick with the 1. series, or try and find the snapshot from May that still had the old kernel...

I can stick with 1.09CE, but I still have to recompile it, ...
unfortunately all the files for that I cannot find anymore.
With the new 2.0 releases, the 1.x stuff I could not find anymore.
