    Problems with installing Linux on an old laptop

    First things first. Pl let's know how you have burnt it and which version of puppy, 32 or 64 bit, whether your m/c is 32 or 64. I have seen things going weired due to faulty burn and/or incompatibility. Unless you provide sufficient info, it would be difficult to help. Once this doubt gets...

    Problems with installing Linux on an old laptop

    @Bensy I wonder why puppylinux shouldn't work. Do tell us details how you tried puppy, which build (because it looks like from the screenshot that the data is corrupt).

    Renamed "60-laptop-kbd.rule" to "89-laptop-kbd.rule" and rebooted. Still no luck. Both KBs are active.

    In puppylinux, how to disable laptop keyboard, use USB keyboard instead?

    @darry1966 1. Yeah. I had posted this issue on puppylinux forum. It is very active forum (Mike Walsh is very helpful). But for this query, I am yet to get any response. 2. url you mentioned is 15 years old and a lot has been changed since then. Further, it talks about usb support not available...

    @Fanboi Did that and rebooted. But still both the keyboards are active (laptop's KB and usb KB). (the file "60-laptop-kbd.rules" has been created correctly. I checked).

    @Fanboi There's no file "55-laptop-kbd.rules" in "/etc/udev/rules.d/" The contents are as shown in attached screenshot. (there's a file "55-cups.rules")
