The first time you run Macpup, The system will be running totally in RAM!
Click on Htop on the ibar to check working space left in RAM*. If less than 30MB,
do not run big apps like Firefox -- instead, shutdown Macpup and you will be
asked to create a save file, that will give you more space.You can put the
save file almost anywhere,Hard drive,USB Flash drive,Sd card.Etc...
I recommend 256 MB total system ram for Macpup.You can also check ram by adding
the systray module to the Ibar. Click on the Top Hat on the Ibar to adjust most
system settings. Access the settings panel to make adjustments to e17.
Menu-settings-settings panel or the settings icon on the right end of the Ibar.
Updates for Macpup 525 can be found at http://macpup.org/runtt21/ in the macpup 525 folder,
as well as extra modules and more themes. Please note that macpup is for PC's and
not intended for use on a real "Mac".

the default theme:
Important note about themes, All of the mp511 & mp520 themes will work in
This version of Macpup will boot to desktop in almost all cases and
from that screen you can make adjustments if they are needed or
wanted.The desktop and clock should be correct. If it does not boot to
a graphical screen, it might boot to a “prompt.” If that happens
please enter ‘xorgwizard’ which will allow you to configure Macpup. If
it does not boot to a prompt but a black screen, then you should
reboot the CD and press f1 and enter ‘puppy pfix=nox’, in the space
that asks for any boot options. Then at the prompt enter ‘xorgwizard’.
If you connect to the internet by Ethernet As soon as the desktop
comes up you will be online please click on the top hat on the ibar
