The beauty of Puppy Tahr 6.0 is that programs that
are available for Ubuntu 14.04 also can be easily
installed and run in Puppy Tahr (and thus also in
PuppEX). This means that virtually all programs
intended for Ubuntu 14.04 can be installed in
PuppEX. See a picture that shows how it looks when
Package Manager is running.
PuppEX Tahr Linux Live CD
PuppEX Tahr 32 bit is a remaster of
Linux Tahr 6.0, released on October 28, 2014.
Kernel 4.0.1-PAE-puppex is used.
Kernel 4.0.1 is the latest available stable kernel
from Kernel.org as of
150501. PuppEX uses the original Puppy Tahr Desktop. I
have added PCManFM

due to me including also NVIDIA Graphics driver 346.59,
Chrome (for Netflix),
Adobe Flash and compiling
tools. Puppy Tahr original is of only 199 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).
I've also added Tahrpup's Service Pack 6.0.2.
PuppEX Tahr build 150501 uses a PAE
enabled kernel - 4.0.1-PAE-puppex. (Kernel 4.0.1 was
released 150429). With PAE compiled into the kernel
PuppEX can address up to 64GB of RAM.
Chrome is now included. Just to make it possible
to watch Netflix
movies. I've also added Tahrpup's Service Pack 6.0.2.

Compatible with Ubuntu 14.04 LTS

available for Ubuntu 14.04 LTS also can be easily
installed and run in Puppy Tahr (and thus also in
