Well, I give up.
I have tried for months and invested dozens of hours to get a machine that
runs qubes and it hasn't happened.
So would somebody be willing to go into say pb tech with different live
puppy's on stick (or DVD) and finding what computers run it.
Puppy was the distro I was wanting to run on my brand new computer I
bought last year. I have been told that it is hard to find a new computer
that won't rtun puppy. My new computer didn't. Hopefully it is just a freak.
So if you are prepared to do that, could you then let me know at least two
of those computers that should be able to run qubes according to the
hardware specifications at the qubes website.
If nobody is prepared to do that it is more than fine. I will just buy a
computer that runs a windows legacy os.
Why do you need to run puppy so much? If its a new computer best to run a
bigger distro. What's the computer? I'm guessing Intel 64bit but correct me
otherwise. You should be able to download Debian and create a live usb, and
install. Seems a waste to buy a new computer when you already have a new
computer. What's the computer running currently? If its windows10 no point
in switching to 7, best to keep win10 or switch to Linux.
If you can go to pbtech why can't you go to te ata on a Monday or Friday
and get Ian to help?
