Came across this derivative which I saw not announced on the forum, therefore I do it here.

From their homepage:

Welcome to Puppylib

Its name may remind you with that small-but-superb Linux distribution... Yup, Puppylib is build under a puplet Macpup and its derived from Puppylinux 4.20. For your information, Puppylinux is a complete operating system for computers with just 100 MB in size. So slim but still beauty!! Puppy Linux is based on GNU/Linux. It is completely free and covered by the LGPL license, an open source license. In the other hand, Macpup is a puplet, the creation of customized derivatives, that comes with Mac-flavour in style thanks to Enlightenment Windows Manager.

logoPuppylib is a Live-CD Linux, remastering of Puppylinux for librarian. Its aims are to promote the usage of Linux in libraries and to provide and make the librarian examine the opensource library management system (LMS). Puppylib comes with 2 LMS; there are Senayan and Openbiblio. Since cloud computing becomes trend, I also added this distribution with eyeOS, the leading opensource cloud-computing software. Last but not least, the veteran of library softwares the CDS/ISIS from Unesco and Dewey Cutter Program from OCLC are also made available in the desktop thanks to wine [wine is not an emulator].

To make this distro user-friendly, here are the login details for each software:

* Senayan, with username=admin and password=admin
* Openbiblio, with username=admin and password=admin
* eyeOS, with username=root and password=admin

This first release is called Puppylib "memo", 261MB in size and is dedicated for dgekpuri. You can download the ISO file from this Link1 [deadlink] thanks to Hendro Wicaksono, lead developer of Senayan, this Link2 [deadlink] thanks to Purwoko from Geological Eng. Library at Gadjah Mada University (UGM), this Link3 thanks to Prof. Raffy Mananghaya from University of the Philippines Los Banos.

Nancy
I would think Puppy's own Raffy, a regular here, is aware of this Librarian version, but I agree it needed posting on the forum
I seem to remember requests over a year ago for a Librarian version

Good job, guys!

Couldn't find an active download link in Puppylib webpage, so here it is! (Found in puplets archive)

Maybe forummember Raffy can tell you ?

If so, maybe you could post his answer here ?

The developer of PuppyLib is Adnuri Mohamidi, though he is listed on Linkedin Indonesia and Facebook, he doesn't seem to maintain PuppyLib

http://puppylib.open-lib.net/index.html

Try emailing him directly...and let him know of the interest at the Puppy Forum....perhaps he'll post here?

cyberariani@gmail.com

Best I can offer I'm afraid

Thanks, Aitch, for providing the URL of the download.

As to jamalexa's questions, whether you get a response or not from the developer, please post your question here. This can prompt others to do their testing and help provide the answers.

PostPosted: Sat 25 Sep 2010, 12:15    Post subject: Nobody home  

Thanks for the offer for help. Basicly I installed Puppylib on a Compaq Deskpro EN, P3,667mhz, 384Megs ram, full install at work. In the live cd, Seamonky opens to http://locakhost/index.html giving me a page similar to the website's page with links under Home to start Senayan, Openbiblio and EyeOS. In my full install - http://localhost/index.html is blank. Nothing is shown at all. Should I have done a frugal install instead? I am going to setup a system at home to test on. I'm also going to try to contact to creator this weekend.

Run it live off the cd in ram . Then copy the stuff you need to a usb flash drive. The next time you run your install just mount the usb drive and copy the stuff over.

When you run it live if Seamonkey shows this page when you are not connected to the internet, that means the html page is saved on the .iso .If it only shows it when your connected then the page is bookmarked in seamonkey. What does opera do? I know this is based on macpup opera or opera 061.

Good Morning, I ran the cd on my laptop - this pup can't detect my wireless card. Seamonkey and Opera both show the pages. Do I mount the iso? Where on the iso will I find the html files? What webserver is running? I know that the files are usually found in a /www folder.

Run the cd live, Open rox ,Look in /usr/share/doc should be something like first run message or welcome message if they didn't change it. But if you open the page "As text" in rox they will look funky. You may need to open the page in opera or seamonkey to make sure.

I am using the live cd now from my desktop. I went to root/usr/share/doc/index.html. It is a "welcome to Puppy version 4.2" page. The only other folders in usr/share/doc are opera, opera-static, axel.html, ans slmodem.txt. I'm going to look around a bit.

I found it. Everything is in opt/lampp/htdocs. When I get to work tomorrow I'm going to look on the hard drive and see if it's there. If not I'll copy everything from opt/lampp/htdocs to the hd.
