No, I do not believe that 64bit had anything to do with it, it was a bad ISO downloaded from a bad internet connection, along with a bad download of Google Chrome. And I was not trying this on a USB as you seemed to be saying. If you think I am wrong I will load one up and try it out.
I should have been more clear, I could only run a puppy from usb, and not the LM17 series. LM17 would however run from CD well but slow, probably normal.
I have no idea why you couldn't run the same operating system from USB that you could run from CD, but I don't see what it would have to do with RAM.
Any full Linux distro will work much slower from CD than it would from HDD. Puppy is the exception, because no matter if it's on CD, USB or the HDD, the whole thing loads into RAM on boot up. So one it's booted up, it should work at the same speed no matter what media you booted from.
I have never used a 64 bit OS, but AFAIK 1GB of RAM isn't enough. Whereas 1GB of RAM is sufficient for any major 32 bit OS, and plenty for a 32 bit Puppy.
Here you say the drag and drop but then you say to "select" "copy", I'm guessing you mean just select copy&amp;gt;delete&amp;gt;then paste. Drag drop would be DIFFERENT than always select "copy" these are two different operations? I get what you are saying though and this is a big help as I was trying to do just this recently.
You seem to be describing drag and drop on Windows, but it's different on Puppy. When you try to drag and drop a file on Puppy from one directory in one window, to another directory in another window; you are presented with two options: 1) copy, and 2) move.
What I'm saying is that when you are presented with these two options, choose ''copy'' rather than ''move,'' then delete the original file that you just copied after that if you want to. I'm not sure of the ins and outs of it, but I was told that this is important on the Puppy forum. I have noticed that to ''copy'' a file takes a lot longer than to ''move'' it, so assume that ''move'' doesn't actually move the whole file, and will lead to it being fragmented.
I don't know what the heck I have lol.
Well unless you ran the installer, Puppy isn't installed.
I have Fatdog and hate it. Every time I "Quit" it asks me where I want my "Save" files to go to dev this or dev that lol. It's all good, I am going another route for now. Give me your opinion though if you like as to Fatdog64-601 if you have used it.
I have never used fatdog so unfortunately I don't know anything about it.
I have already made a LMMQ17 USB Installation for a backup. This way I always have something that I am familiar with that I can fall back on. I am going to play around with another LuPu at some point as I like that one.
I'm pleased to hear you're getting along with it. As I mentioned Puppy works just as well running it from a CD or USB as it does from the HDD. It's also easier to run it from a USB or CD rather than to install it, so it might be best to stick with running it from a CD or USB until you become more familiar with it.
Question: I want to know why when I play video to my tv via HDMI I do not get any sound. There is a free website that I like to watch amaproracing.com motorcycle races, but no sound except for my laptop. I do not know where to post these things, Linux or in the regular forums under the appropriate heading?
I've never even heard of the term ''HDMI'' until now. I would post this in the relevant forum for whatever OS you are using; e,g, if it's Mint 17 then start a new thread in the ''Linux and Unix'' section of the forum.
The only thing I can suggest is to search the internet for the command, to start whatever application you are using from the Terminal, since starting it that way often lists any errors that occur.
For instance, if it's VLC media player you're using, you would search the internet for ''command to start VLC media player in Linux Terminal,'' and you would find the command is simply ''vlc.'' So all you do is open a terminal, and type:
into it, press return/Enter on your keyboard, and the media player will start up just the same as if you had selected it from the menu.
So if you do that for whatever media player you are using, and post any error messages that are displayed in the Terminal when you play a video on your TV, that might give folk here a better idea of what the problem might be.
