View Full Version : Linux 'Personal Storage" Begs For More

What does the personal storage do with the room I gave it yesterday?

Now it wants more and more. It has over 11G personal storage, 4.2G free space right now and it's still yellow.

Oh yeah - it's Puppy/Slacko

It is merely an indicator of the space your files etc take up.
It is useful if you have a frugal install, to track free space in the save sfs file.
I don't think it ever asks for more though....

Is Frugal in Puppy Package Manager (PPM)?

No Joe
A frugal install is a type of installation of the OS.
When you install to a hard drive, Puppy can either do a full install, where it uses it's whole partition,
or it can install to a folder on the partition of another OS, without disturbing the other OS, this a frugal install.

It can also run from a USB flash drive or a live CD, a very clever little puppy it is.

I did the FULL INSTAL version. I guess I ain't got no FRUGAL.

No frugal for you, Joe, full all the way.

The link in bevy121's post is a great place to start finding out about Puppy.

You could always consider a specialty music making distro like 64 studio
which is a paid for product I think
or a more general media distro like Ubuntustudio
or AV linux

These have the advantage of pre-emptive real-time kernels for lower latency
and are already fully armed with a multitude of music-making applications
most of which are able to be interconnected with the JACK audio server.

I'm not a musician, just aware of these things.
