Puppy Linux - Updates him selves to a new version Automaticly?


im still a newbie but after long weeks discovering the best distro for my laptop and the my DWA-140 usb stick.

i get a try with puppy. so far it's working stable but a lot of differences with the another "normal" distros. like fedora, suse, ubuntu etc. this one installs him self as a live boot cd to you HD. it's not possible to create more users.

another points but not important. my main question it's like the another distros Lucid puppy updates him selvs automatically to a newer version?

just a quick point who has a D-LINK DWA 140 just need to get the windows .inf file from XP and use it to install with the software repo for windows inf files. that cames with puppy.

has the another distros also this utility tool?


in the last puppy is a very stable and very very very easy to use distro from linux that use as base ubuntu!

cool folks thanks again for your help.

if you are using puppy 5.10 lucid pup the driver is in the kernel no need for the ndiswrapper.
just go to the d-link site down load the driver and extract the files.
Glad you like puppy
first thing you should do is open a terminal and type passwd the change the root password.
everyone knows the default password for puppylinux there are plenty of puppys out there that you can add users to. even lucid pup
