Unfortunately I don't believe any release of DSL has been made for the PowerPC platform. It isn't compatible with x86 PC binaries.

You're only option would be to use Qemu (http://damnsmalllinux.org/wiki/qemu.html), but then you wouldn't get the normal speed of DSL because it would be running in an emulated environment.

The Embedded release of DSL is for Qemu, but I don't think it has an Apple OS executable. Might be worth checking though.

At least there are a number of other free OSs still carrying PowerPC versions, including a good few Linux distros.

If the iBook is bootable from the usb port and the filesystem of the pendrive is recognizable for the iBook can I suspect that it may boot on this machine or it has to have its' own quirks for the PPC?

Thanks in advance for any info on the above! Hope the forum is still active...

I was back to the forum because needed to know something unrelated to this topic (not mentioning it here).

I was using DSL mainly in an HP-Compaq nx9010. The cpu is intel but don't remember which one but this laptop came with Windows XP Professional which might a good idea what was in it. The RAM was at 512 MB. I stopped using it because it burnt up last year (a Power Supply thing but not at the P/S itself: smoke came out from the laptop and not from the P/S). Haven't opened it, yet; when I finally do I might find something more. Until then, I'm using an old iBook G4 with its OS X in it...

You used the DSL Emdedded release? That's not right, you should have used one of the ISO disc images. The Emdedded release isn't bootable, it's meant to run inside Windows, more info on the Wiki (http://damnsmalllinux.org/wiki/which_file_do_i_download_long_version.html).

Here's what I typed before I noticed that you used the Embedded release:

I remember some mention on the old forum of having to turn off (or maybe on) the "plug and play complient OS" option (or similar) in the BIOS. I can't find any mention of it now though, I've never had the problem myself. Still, worth a try. Giving another USB memory device a try might be worthwhile as well, if you have one to hand.

So I need to install DSL on this old Pentium II laptop with 128MB RAM. The problem is that it has only 1 USB port and it cannot boot from it. However, it has a bootable floppy drive. So what I did was extract the DSL Embedded zip onto a 2GB USB drive formatted in FAT16 and booted the laptop from a DSL boot floppy. The menu loads fine, but typing in the USB boot command (dsl fromusb xsetup frugal) results in an error message. Boot Failed. I tried different floppies, different USB drives, and even extracting them to a partition on the hard disk (and using the dsl fromhd command), but no luck. What should I do to get DSL installed?

I don't really know where to look, but I don't think that's the current logo.

Attached are a couple from desktop backgrounds. The first is included with the distro, the second is from the "classic-backgrounds" extension and probably no bigger than what you've got.

Perhaps you could try sending a PM to John  (http://damnsmalllinux.org/forums/index.php?action=profile;u=1), or to his email address listed on the donations page (http://damnsmalllinux.org/donate.html).

Hello everbody, I'm designer and i'm doing a banner about Linux distributions. Please, if someone can help me to find the DSL logo in good quality, I will be eternally grateful! I only find it in very bad quality, and the banner i'm doing is really big. Thank you and bless you all!
PD: Sorry for my bad english.
