Puppy Linux

Last Update: 2018-03-24 02:03 UTC


Puppy Linux is yet another Linux distribution. What's different here is that Puppy is extraordinarily small, yet quite full-featured. Puppy boots into a ramdisk and, unlike live CD distributions that have to keep pulling stuff off the CD, it loads into RAM. This means that all applications start in the blink of an eye and respond to user input instantly. Puppy Linux has the ability to boot off a flash card or any USB memory device, CDROM, Zip disk or LS/120/240 Superdisk, floppy disks, internal hard drive. It can even use a multisession formatted CD-RW/DVD-RW to save everything back to the CD/DVD with no hard drive required at all.

Popularity (hits per day): 12 months: 23 (399), 6 months: 24 (375), 3 months: 26 (333), 4 weeks: 32 (292), 1 week: 31 (291)

Average visitor rating: 9.28/10 from 72 review(s).

I'm writing this on a Pentium2 running @ 350MHZ &320 MB Memory, that alone is why Puppy Linux needs to exist, it just works on older hardware that most people throw in a dumpster these days. Computer makes for a wonderful Jukebox with the Asunder CD ripper being easy to use, and useful. Mplayer Media player works fine for laying out playlists. I use a Wireless Connection for the Net, and the OS has a easy interface for connecting to the net. Seamonkey suite comes with this OS, but unfortunately, That's where Wary Puppy 5.5's limitations start to appear, as Puppy Linux is a Live CD, and therefore it cannot update software. At least without real command line wizardry that this noob just doesn't yet have. So yes, Wary Puppy got me here, and for a 20 year old computer, that ain't bad, but It's a dead end for me, as Wary isn't being supported anymore, so the included software becomes more out of date with time (2018) and this machine becomes a wonderful relic, loaded with tons of good tunes, and a occasional foray onto the net, a place I wish its browser was more comfortable visiting.

I have a very new computer with some of the latest hardware.
Xenialpup64 7.5 seems to be the correct version of Puppy, that gives me full hardware support.

This computer has a SSD and a hard drive.
I have Windows 10 on the internal SSD drive and Puppy on the internal hard drive.
Windows 10 boots using the Windows boot loader on the SSD.
Puppy boots using the Grub4dos boot loader on the hard drive.
When I boot the computer, I run the boot device selection screen and choose which drive to boot from.
This way, Windows 10 and Puppy never mix operations or do anything to their separate drives.
Windows 10 does not like other OS, doing things to a drive, it is on and operating from.

I have found that mixing Puppy, with other Linux OS, and trying to use Grub2 boot loader, for Puppy.
Grub2 just does not understand the boot process for Puppy. It can be tweaked to boot Puppy, but I find it much easier to use the Grub4dos boot loader, to boot Puppy.
Grub4dos config does a good job of making a menu entry for other Linux OS's.

Xenialpup comes with the Palemoon browser, a good replacement for Firefox.
The developers of Palemoon seem to care about just making a browser work and not need to constantly update dependency files/programs.

Xenialpup is a frugal install using a save folder.
Best way to install Puppy.
A frugal install puts all of Puppy in a folder(directory), so no limit to how many can be installed other than free space on drive.
Easy to install more than one Puppy version.
Easy to backup, because anything added or changed is in the save.
The core Puppy install never gets changed.
Simply make a copy of the save.

I love Puppy Linux, it is super fast / light and very fun to use. I have knocked off 1 point simply because Puppy should be (IMO) a lot easier to install to a HDD, it does not work properly, even if you copy the GRUB2 text and paste it to the menu.list to enable Grub4Dos to find then boot Puppy, the text needs updating, if you do not use Grub4Dos and just keep your GRUB2 it will not boot, also Frugal install to HDD does not work but installing to a USB does work.

I hope the dev reads these reviews, please mate, we do want to have Puppy as our primary OS on our hardware, make it a little easier.
