when i boot live cd puppy it gives me option to select timzone! (ask me for version if necessary)
Same for resolution, (and i think there were many keyboard layouts available.) Try installing programs and keyboard layout with PET?
Programs crash with no reason.
i didn't use that programs when running live cd but things like gxine and games worked very stady. Maybe your hardware is no ok?
What version of Puppy Linux are you trying?
Also, tell us a little about the computer you are using as to make, processor speed, memory installed, and hard drive size.
This will help us help you.
I have installed Puppy to hard drives, USB flash drives, and also booted from the live CD. Sometimes something does not work like you would expect.
Then it may be that you need and older version to support your hardware. But a lot of times, it is something that can be fixed with a little support.
I had like problems when I tried to install Puppy 5.00 on a USB stick.
The probed video card would not work and in the end, I selected CHOOSE in xorgwizard to select my video card.
My built-in wifi also was not recognized and I ended up using ndiswrapper and a driver for windows 2000.
As to the programs that crash, I have have not used the two that you mention.
There have been others that have had problems with language and keyboard support reported at murga-linux.com/puppy.
There may be some solutions there for that.
Also, have you did an md5sum check of the CD against the md5sum given for the Puppy ISO file. You just might have a corrupted burn of the CD.
With Puppy 5.00 running, open the folder that contains the iso file.
Then click on the tyde key (the one below Esc to open a terminal in that directory.
At the prompt, type "md5sum [name of iso file].
Compare the output with the hash for the iso.
