PuppEX Slack64/Xenial 64/32 bit Linux Live CD :: Build 160823 respectively 160822


ABOUT PuppEX Xenial Build 160822
One of my newest Puppy derivatives is built from LxPup with the LXDE Desktop environment. I have added Google Chrome (for Netflix), Gimp, VLC, Emacs and some development tools. If you want more you can download and load (Menu >> Setup >> SFS-Load-on-the-fly) devx_PuppEX_2016.sfs. I have compiled a new kernel - 4.7.1-x86-pae-puppex. Kernel 4.7.1 is the second lastest stable kernel available from Kernel.org as of 160822. PAE (Physical Address Extension) increases the physical memory addressable by the system from 4 GB to 64 GB. PuppEX Xenial is compatible with Ubuntu 16.04, which means that Ubuntu packages for Ubuntu 16.04 can be installed and used in PuppEX. The PuppEX Xenial ISO is of 585 MB.


ABOUT PuppEX Slack64 bit Live CD :: Build 160823
PuppEX Slack64 is a remaster of Puppy Linux Slacko64 6.3.2, released in June, 2016. Kernel 4.7.2-x86_64-puppex is used. PuppEX Slack64 uses the original Puppy Slacko64 Desktop. I have added PCManFM and LXTerminal. They are more useful than ROX-Filer respectively RXVT, I think. The ISO file is on the whole 557 MB, which is due to me including also NVIDIA Graphics driver 367.35, Gimp, Google Chrome (for Netflix), Adobe Flash and some compiling tools. If you want more you can download and load (Menu >> Setup >> SFS-Load-on-the-fly) devx_puppex_slack64_6.3.2.sfs. The Nvidia driver will be used if your computer/card is "good/modern" enough. Puppy Slacko original is of only 238 MB. PuppEX Slack64 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). Puppy Slacko64/PuppEX 6.3.2 is compatible with Slackware 14.1.

Default language in PuppEX

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.


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)
root (hd0,5)
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.
