No-Office LuPu 5.10 now released!

Finally! a clean, no-office, all-purpose version of XLuPu 5.10 is now outfor everyone to try!

* No more G-Office, Hiawatha server and a few webapps, so that the user may configure the system to anything he or she wants
* Still no bluetooth and no automatic LAN/WLAN connection. The power to add features is in the user's hand.
* surprisingly, it's even slightly larger than the XLUPU variant. But at least, it can now fly free with complete libraries.
* Perfect as a base system, especially for Pinoy Pup Linux!... read more

XLUPU 5.10 r1 released

XLuPu is a Puppy Linux - based distribution (puplet) which features XFCE4 as its desktop environment and window manager.

This distro contains the applications found in Puppy Linux 5.1 "Lucid Puppy", and is intended to be used in the creation of a No-Office-LuPu, which will serve as base for the next release of Pinoy Pup Linux Operating System v.6

Known bugs for XLUPU are as follows:
* powerapplet_tray is still there but it's of no use.
* XFCE Network Monitor doesn't start after installing the dependencies and all... hail blinky!
* XFCE Power Manager doesn't start
* drive_all doesn't unmount the drives
* Autodetecting of video was disabled
* It's too heavy for a PII, 128MB machine.. "Lite Editions" of Pinoy Pup Linux will have to be based on NOP 4.31... read more
