ABOUT PuppEX Tahr 32 bit Live CD :: version 150501
PuppEX Tahr 32 bit is a remaster of Puppy 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 and LXTerminal. They are more useful than ROX-Filer respectively RXVT, I think. The ISO file is on the whole 475 MB, which is due to me including also NVIDIA Graphics driver 346.59, 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 6.0.2.
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. Google Chrome is now included. Just to make it possible to watch Netflix movies. I've also added Tahrpup's Service Pack 6.0.2. NVIDIA Graphics driver 346.59 is installed.
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 4.0.1-PAE-puppex and installed NVIDIA Graphics driver 346.59. The Nvidia driver will be used if your computer/card is "modern" enough. I've also added Tahrpup's Service Pack 6.0.2 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 drive or a USB stick. Click on the 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.
