Puppy Studio rt 3.3 or Macpup 528

Post by aicram »

Dear All,

I am considering installing either puppy studio 3.3 rt or macpup 528 onto my old toshiba laptop. I have tried both livecds on my old toshiba satellite pro 85 and like them both. I would actually love the beauty, speed, and polish of the macpup 528 only with an rt kernel and tuned for audio production.

I , also, thought of installing puppy studio 3.3 rt and then adding the E17 window manager. I would hope this would be like a studio macpup 528. I do not if this is feasible. I want to try the easier solution .

Any thoughts will be appreciated.

Thank you.

Marcia

I am sure there are more linux distros, derivatives and combinations than there are linux users who haunt this site, so I suggest you try and tell us! :D

I don't see any reason why it shouldn't be feasible but I didn't try.

Cheers! Pablo

I found out from the puppy site that you cannot install kernels but you can remaster puppy to include a new kernel. I am not savvy about doing that yet. I will first install puppy 3.3rt and then install E17 as the window manager . I will let you know how it turns out.

don't need to use "tiny distros" to install on old PCs. any distro with lightweight DE will work.

btw., I use E17 and its lightweight, fast and beautifull......but it's still beta (though it's verrrrry stable, but not finished)

Is it easy to install? I don't want to spend much time reading manuals and howtos. But I'm snoopy. Maybe I'll try it on some bad weather weekend.

It depends on the distro. My distro (Arch) has the packages in the repro wich are build from svn and updated from time to time. If your distro doesn't have those you need to install with svn. I update from time to time from svn using a script, it doesn't take long to compile all the packages if you have no old hardware.

Bodhi linux is debian based with default E17, around 400 meg iso image to make
bootable live cd/usb. Good forum support, and a bright future. Its also being ported
to arm, and some Archos brand tablets. EDIT: Archos port is dropped, but
Genesi Netbook support is a go.

this RT kernel and headers may work with debian unstable audio apps in bodhi

linux-image-2.6.31-11-rt_2.6.31-11.154_i386.deb

http://pkgs.org/ubuntu-10.04/ubuntu-upd ... 6.deb.html

Try doing a macpup and puppystudio full install on usbsticks, do a few boots on the macpup,
and puppy studio, to finalize the settings. On a non-puppy linux, like Bodhi, you can try adding this kernel and headers

http://pkgs.org/ubuntu-10.04/ubuntu-upd ... 6.deb.html

http://pkgs.org/ubuntu-10.04/ubuntu-upd ... l.deb.html

debian packages can be selected with a package manager, for local installation,
or installed using dpkg -i name-of-.deb

http://packages.debian.org/unstable/sound/

PuppyStudio may have its winecfg audio tab with jackd selected. This should be changed to alsa,
to use the installed Reaper to host any vsts. Reaper can be connected to linux things,
using qjackctl.
Run the command winecfg to check the audio tab settings.

There is a pet package providing E17, you might be able to try that with Puppy Studio, but I haven't tried it.
