What are the needed files for installing puppy214X Top 9?


Dear All,

Nice to find one more forum for puppy.
I am planning to install classic puppy 214X Top 9.

What are the needed files for installing puppy214X Top 9?

Sincerely,

If you downloaded the ISO for it, it already contains all the files.
What OS are you running now?
It makes a difference in how you install it.
If you are already running a version of linux, and have Grub for dos installed, you do not even have to burn a CD.
For a frugal install with an existing version of linux installed, you would create a directory for Puppy 214, click on the Puppy 214 ISO file to mount it, and copy vmlinuz, initrd.gz, and puppy214.sfs to the created directory.
Then edit menu.list to add it to your boot menu.

There are instructions on Puppylinux.org for a frugal install of Puppy, so I am not going to go into the details.

Also, as to Puppy forums, there are this forum, murga-linux.com/puppy/, and puppylinuxforum.org
For information, there are puppylinuxfaq.org, and puppylinux.org

That should give you a few places for Puppy.

just dload the iso, install is more about which way you would like to go about it along with providing detailed and relevant info from your end

to make it easy, depends what you have, what you know, what you wanna do and going from there

new folks usually burn the iso to cd, boot it and then are good to go

And a few new folks attempt to burn a CD with the ISO file as a file instead of burning it as an image.
Also, they run into problems with puppy file names being lower case and windows copying them as uppercase.

And then there are those with severely limited PCs as to processor speed and low ram that complain that their 120mhz PC with 64 megs of ram does not play those YouTube videos smoothly.

They expect Puppy to magically make their old PC run like a quad core 3ghz PC with 8gigs of ram.

I have seen some users bragging about being able to get Puppy to run on a PC with 16megs of ram.

That must give a new meaning to the term "slow motion"!

I fired back at one and stated I have a Timex Sinclair 1000 with a Z80 processor running at 1.79mhz and having 2 kilobytes of ram. And I want to see them get Puppy running on it. Grins and Smiles.
