After a long absence from VL I just downloaded VL5.9-Light-B5 and installed it on my old Toshiba. Very impressed.
One problem though.
Laptop modem is an agere winmodem. Puppy has no problem with it, but VL needs the drivers. I downloaded martian-full-20080407.tar.gz and tried to install it, but make all gives me an error message to the effect "Entering an unknown directory". Looking at other posts on this problem it seems I may need to download and install some packages first. But I can't use gslapt without a modem. . .
Is there a way of installing programs that I download on my other laptop? If so, how? Where do I find the packages to use with 5.9? Has anyone else had success in setting up winmodems in 5.9 light?
Thanks in advance for your suggestions.
