Compatible with Slackware 14.1
Puppy Linux is considered as an independent Linux system. However, it is nevertheless compatible with the eminent Linux system Slackware. The beauty of Puppy Slacko 5.6 is that programs that are available for Slackware 14.1 (latest version) also can be easily installed and run in Puppy Slacko (and thus also in PuppEX). In Puppy Package Manager, I have added the software repositories for 14.1 Official Slackware and Slackware Salix 14.1. This means that virtually all programs intended for Slackware 14.1 can be installed in PuppEX. See a picture that shows how it looks when the Puppy Package Manager is running.
PuppEX 14.1 Linux Live CD
PuppEX 14.1 5.6 32bit is a remaster of Puppy Linux Slacko 5.6, released on August 12, 2013. Kernel 3.10.5 is used. PuppEX uses the LXDE Desktop interface. Unlike the original Puppy Slacko 5.6, which uses JVM, Fvwm95 and IceWM as Desktop interface. PCManFM and LXTerminal are more useful ROX-Filer respectively RXVT, I think. The ISO file is on the whole 317 MB, which is due to me including LXDE and compiling tools (devx_slacko_5.6.0.sfs). Slacko 5.6 original is of only 165 MB. PuppEX is despite this still running as fast as the original, which means it runs very, very fast compared to most other Linux systems. (Puppy/PuppEX runs from RAM).
MOST IMPORTANT CHANGES
I've changed repositories from Slackware 14.0 to Slackware 14.1 and Slackware 14.1 "Salix".
The default language (locale) is set to English.
The default keyboard layout is American (us). Change it by running the command setxkbmap se (for Sweden) or click on the icon "Setup" in the Menu.
INSTALLATION to HDD or USB stick
PuppEX can easily be installed to hard disk or a USB stick. Click on the Menu icon Setup >> Install >> Universal Installer in the Menu. After installing to a USB stick, you can save changes to the system (including software installations) directly on the stick. When you shut down the system for the first time you will be asked if you want to save your changes. After that all changes are automatically saved.
Change your Grub Legacy configuration (if you have one)
Edit menu.lst (/boot/grub/menu.lst) to look like this:
title PuppEX (sda6)
kernel /boot/vmlinuz root=/dev/sda6 pmedia=atahd
NOTE: In the above example PuppEX is installed on /dev/sda6. You must of course change (hd0,5) and /dev/sda6 so that it matches your installation. NOTE ALSO: On certain computers you may have to add nomodeset or/and acpi=off to the kernel line above.
