    What a surprise this blog gave me with a Puppy 4.3.1 with updated kernel Do you have a kernel.sfs for this kernel version? I frequently compile things and this is the only thing in the way now…

      Sorry didn’t use a kernel.sfs – used the steps outlined at https://pateo.wordpress.com/2009/12/25/how-to-updateupgrade-kernel-for-puppy-linux-dpup/ (made up from reading Barry’s notes on recompiling the kernel and my own experiments with Puppy).

        On my NB200 it does not detect a valid graphics mode until I go to Tweaks and select a generic driver.
        Sound also does not work. Mine is a NB200-SP2912R, which is a NB200 with long lasting battery and spanish keyboard.

        Following are the audio details of the NB205 used with this custom Puppy;

        # uname -a
        Linux puppypc #2 SMP Sun Feb 28 18:24:59 GMT-10 2010 i686 GNU/Linux
        # cat /proc/asound/card0/codec#0 |grep Codec
        Codec: Realtek ALC272
        # aplay -l
        **** List of PLAYBACK Hardware Devices ****
        card 0: Intel [HDA Intel], device 0: ALC272 Analog [ALC272 Analog]
        Subdevices: 1/1
        Subdevice #0: subdevice #0

        This shows the sound working.

        Credit for the original sound patch goes to Leann Ogasawara from the Ubuntu kernel team. The patch was then manually adjusted (with lots of trial and error) for each version of the custom compiled kernel.
