Puppy 2.16 on Macintosh
 
Hi, guys,
I just have installed Puppy 2.16 on a PowerBook Pro (17''). What is the appropriate resolution setting for this screen? When I use 1600 x 1050, Puppy's screen is bigger then the monitor so that I need to to scroll.
Also, I have experienced a weirdest thing in my computer life - there were two cursors on the screen, and both of them responded to the touchpad.
Any input is very appreciated.
Thank you.
Val

How did you do it?
 
I'm very curious how you got Puppy working on the powerbook, and if you are satisfied with it.

I have an old G3 ibook that I could have fun with if I could Puppy it.

I am also interested in how it worked out. I have an Intel G5 and think I try booting from a live cd at first. How did yours work out?

Hi, Craprock,

I am using Poppy 3 on my Intel G5 PowerBook, it works just fine. I am impressed that it is very easy to set wireless networking. I using Poppy with Parallel's Desktop. Good luck. You will love Poppy.

I am downloading the iso for puppy 2.16.1 and am kind of nervous as this is my first experience with linux ever :eek: From what I understand, I restart the computer with the live cd in it and hold "c"? Thank You Very Much!
