    Re: Easy Distro for websurfing with old laptop. Possible?

    I've a sort of idea though I'm very noob. As said it's fundamental for me to get a ready-to-use internet connection during the live session of the distro I'm searching. Afaik some distros carry a "persistent" live session, in other words I can modify everything during the live session and save it on the usb flashdrive as it was a portable "full" OS. My idea is to work on puppy live session to make my usb huawei dongle to connect the web, save this "job" to the pendrive and then get the modified puppy into a new .iso file. In this way I guess I'll get a puppy iso with internet connection working out of the box and I could put it into my flashdrive for emergencies. Is it possible? Do you think it's the best way to get my goal?

    I like your plan, and think you should proceed at your own pace, and keep us posted...

    We might be able to help if you hit a roadblock on the way, but I suspect things will go pretty well, barring unknowable difficulties getting the wireless USB device working.

    Here we are, my first roadblock and of course it's about my usb huawei dongle because it doesn't appear in "lsusb" list. If the idea is good let me know if it's the case to go on posting here these troubles about puppy or it's better for me to ask to another outside specific puppy linux forum, I remember from my lubuntu adventure how it can be hard to make a linux OS to recognize an internet key. By the way, I've got only this usb dongle to connect to the internet so no wireless or ethernet devices, else it'd be easier
    Anyway I copied some reports got from puppy bionic live session, I mean the infos from "pup-sysinfo", if they can be useful to solve my main/only problem:
    - System https://paste.ubuntu.com/p/QpyWMH95sp/
    - HW https://paste.ubuntu.com/p/HSMH8G7qMj/
    They do not expire if I'm not wrong.

    It can't hurt to start a thread on the Puppy forums.

    I'm no good with help on your problem. Hopefully someone else on this forum is and will be along to help out shortly.
