Compatible with Ubuntu 14.04
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 the Puppy Package Manager is running.
PuppEX Tahr Linux Live CD
PuppEX Tahr 32 bit is a remaster of Puppy Linux Tahr 6.0, released on October 28, 2014. Kernel 3.18.2-PAE-puppex is used. Kernel 3.18.2 is the latest available stable kernel from Kernel.org as of 150112. PuppEX uses the original Puppy Tahr 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 483 MB, which is due to me including also NVIDIA Graphics driver 340.65, Gimp, Google 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 6.0.1.
PuppEX Tahr build 150112 uses a PAE enabled kernel - 3.18.2-PAE-puppex. With PAE compiled into the kernel PuppEX can address up to 64GB of RAM. Google Chrome is now included. Just to make it possible to watch Netflix movies.
Compatible with Ubuntu 14.04 LTS
The beauty of Puppy Tahr 6.0 is that programs that are available for Ubuntu 14.04 LTS also can be easily installed and run in Puppy Tahr (and thus also in PuppEX).
MOST IMPORTANT CHANGES
I've changed kernel from 3.14.20 to 3.18.2-PAE-puppex and installed NVIDIA Graphics driver 340.65. The Nvidia driver will be used if your computer/card is "modern" enough. I've also added Tahrpup's Service Pack 6.0.1 and Google Chrome. Just to make it possible to watch Netflix movies.
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.
