(Slacko - Puppy Linux USB) A few configuration questions
I have only used Windows all my entire life. But recently my HDD failed. Atm, I do not have the resources to buy a replacement.
So I have loaded the most recent version of Slacko - Puppy Linux onto a 2GB USB. The idea is to use this OS for the browser for the time being. I have been relative successful configuring my USB device etc. But I have a few issues and confusions I hope someone out there could lend me some advice about.
Going in, please understand I am new to all that is linux. I did search before posting this. But all solutions that are relate appear to me as complete gibberish :D and running random code that previously did/may corrupt my install really setsme back. I'm PC literate, but if you wouldn't mind going into detail or putting your response into a way a non linux user could easily understand.
Issue #1: Freezing
My puppy linux is guaranteed to freeze after more than about 4 hours. During the freeze, the screen is what was previous displayed but completely still and there is a low volume buzzing sound. I reboot and its fine for another few hours. Rinse and repeat.
Currently I am using the ndiswrapper to load in my WUSB600N v.1 usb wireless adapter's module or driver. The device works properly. I don't know if this is causing the freezing, but I do know that it is not reliable. But I wasn't successful otherwise as my device isn't supported within the install. Which leads into my next question.
I also thought space on the USB my be running out after awhile. When I first saved (during first reboot) I set the space to 756mb (or close to).
Issue #2: How to pre-install modules/drivers
I have taken a gander at the bootmanager. But I didn't see an option to add a module that wasn't listed. So I'm guessing there is a location I can put the driver files so the boot manager find them and I wont have to use ndiswrapper. If this isn't possible, how else can I load my driver.
Issue#3: I can't get flash player to work with Firefox
Currently I'm using SeaMonkey and the flash player works. Its ok, but I prefer firefox. I have installed firefox and runs but its not finding the adobe flash plugin. I updated the flash player file in mozilla/plugins but no luck. I tried to examine why Seamonkey would, and firefox wouldn't with them being in the same location. But I couldn't figure it out.
Thank you for reading,
I apologize if I didn't mention information you need to advise. Please ask and I'll post it asap.
My setup that Puppy is running on:
AMD Phenom 1.8ghz quad
4 GB Ram
450 watt Antec PSU
Using the integrated GPU
