PuppEX 14.1 5.6 32bit is a remaster of Puppy Linux Slacko 5.6, released on August 12, 2013. PuppEX version 131212 is compatible with Slackware 14.1 released November 7, 2013.
Kernel 3.10.5 is used.
PuppEX uses LXDE as Desktop interface. Unlike the original Puppy Slacko 5.6, which uses JVM, Fvwm95 and IceWM as Desktop interface. The file manager PCManFM and LXTerminal are more useful than 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 CHANGE
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.
