Quite frankly I am not happy with the combination of obviously old hardware, operating system, and lack of keeping up on browser updates.
From another 'Puppy' user, new to this board:-
I have to confess, I'm curious about this remark. For those of us in the Puppy community, many have no choice but to run older hardware. At least with Puppy, we're able to run reasonably up-to-date OSes, due to Pup's tiny size and lightweight requirements.
And there are obvious dichotomies with recommended requirements. I run a 'kennels' of 11 Puppies, currently.....on a 2005, Compaq Presario desktop PC (highly-modded, and upgraded to within an inch of its life..!
- 'UPup Raring', based on the Ubuntu 13.04 release (glibc 2.17), that's just started complaining - it's the libstdc++ thing.
- Racy 5.5 (last of the old 'T2' builds, from several years ago), well; one of our community members has just produced a workaround for that, involving a re-compile of the GLib stuff, and a self-contained version of glibc 2.19, called via LD_PRELOAD. (Racy's native glibc is an ancient 2.11).
- Tahrpup 6.0.6 (glibc 2.19) still working OK. Ditto Xenialpup, BionicPup, DPup 'Stretch. Plus various others...
- Curiously, however, 'Slacko' 5.6.0 (based on Slackware 14.0 (glibc 2.15) is running current 28.7.1 without any complaints....
As I said, sometimes stuff just doesn't
seem to add up..!
