Put a Puppy in your PC, part 5

Filed under
Linux

It's time to say goodbye to Puppy Linux but before you put your disc away, in readiness for a disaster that will hopefully never happen, here's some more configuration tips and features you might like to try.

I mentioned in part 3 that the sound might not work when Puppy boots for the first time, if so here's what to do. Go to Menu > Setup > ALSA Sound Wizard. Click OK and the audio devices on your PC will be displayed. Select the first one on the list, click OK, confirm the selection (a couple of times) and you will hear a test sound (a dog bark). If it doesn't work go back and try the next option. If your PC is barking you can try out Puppy's audio recorder and mixer, audio and video replay (most formats, including MP3 and DVD), ripping and burning CD and DVD features, which you will find under Multimedia on the Menu button.

Now let's install your printer.

  • The Best Graphics Card Brands For NVIDIA/AMD GPUs As A Linux Consumer?
    One of the most frequent topics I'm emailed about is any brand recommendations among NVIDIA and AMD AIB partners for graphics cards. For Linux users, is there a particular brand preference for graphics cards? The short story is, no, there isn't one particular brand when selecting either a GeForce or Radeon graphics card that a Linux gamer/enthusiast should go with over another AIB partner. Over the past 12 years of running Phoronix, there has been no single AIB partner that superbly stands out compared to the rest when it comes to graphics card AIB partner brands like ASUS, Zotac, HIS, MSI, etc. They all work under Linux, rarely the AIB differences extend beyond the heatsink/cooler and any default clock speed differences, and I haven't seen one that's over-the-top crazy about Linux. I also haven't seen any major partner consistently put the Tux logo or other Linux markings on their product packaging, let alone incorporate any Linux drivers onto their CD/DVD driver media.
