Summary:

- modular live cd under 100mb, uses grub4dos to boot
- base ISO was Puppy Arcade 10 (which is built from TurboPup)

- improved and updated petget, pmount, bootmanager, startup manager
- no office or browser included by default (easy installer instead)
- on the fly sfs loading (special puplite sfs packs at download site)
- great startup manager to choose what loads at boot
- many changes to make it more user friendly (pupsaveconfig, firstrun, etc)
- many updated drivers in zdrv, better eeepc and intel810 compatibility
- better hotkey support and multimedia keyboard support
- clean save file unmount at shutdown, ask to save session or not
- updated mime types, rox bookmarks, rox options, right click options, /etc/mailcap,
- fewer processes running, static daemons replace some busybox funcs
- uses a zdrv files to store kernel modules, also has zdrv_cutter installed
- fixed initrd.gz on live cd, for loading modules in the zdrv
- no sane or xsane (for scanners)

(Puplite is based on my own work and stuff from Puppy Arcade, Turbopup, PupnGo and 214X
(thanks to barry k, technosaurus, synth, goingnuts, shinobar, ttuuxxx, tempestuous, jemimah, others)


Unique features:

- a user friendly JWM desktop environment, which can be easily customised to your liking.
- "on the fly" loading and unloading of SFS files - install large applications quickly and easily.
- a nice selection of add-on SFS files on the homepage, for printing, office and more
- easy SFS version detection and conversion before you load "on the fly".
- a great startup manager, so you can choose exactly what is loaded when you boot.
- a small and fast VLC media player with the tiny but great VLC-GTK frontend.
- a nice browser installer - with a choice of the latest browsers (FF3, Opera11, etc).
- more supported MIME types and ROX right-click options than most puppies.
- many essential cli apps included by default (elinks, mc, mg, transmissioncli, moc, doc2txt, docx2txt, wput, more).
- many tiny clients, servers & interpretors (http, ftp, samba, perl, python, java, js, ruby, tcl, basic, vi, emacs, more).
- updated system scripts (pmount, petget, bootmanager, snapmergepuppy, xinitrc, xorgwizard, fixmenus, dir2iso, more).
- good hotkey support and multimedia keyboard support (using "Sven").
- more user friendly system setup, especially for startup and shutdown.
- support for extraction (and/or conversion) of .deb, .txz, .rpm, .rar, .pup, .pet, .iso, .nrg
- option to make Puplite compatible with .pet files from Puppy 5 (not recommended)

Quick notes:

My PC is too old to test the CPU frequency thing. I have no idea if it works in 4.2

Tcl/Tk is not included, thus Roaring Penguin is gone and PupSnap replaces mtpaint-snaphot..
(Hope that is enough...Other tcl dependencies?)

I have not tested this on my Eee PC, because Fluppy or Puppeee will be better.
Vattery may or may not work, I haven't tested it.

Any laptop users might want to checkout 'xblacklight' to adjust screen brightness.

I haven't turned my printer on for about 3 years Smile, so haven't tested printing, but Puplite uses standard puppy4 packages for printing in the addon sfs.

PMConky will not show up above the wallpaper..
you must disable jwm wallpaper (delete /usr/share/backgrounds/default.jpg) to see it (a fix, anyone?)

Firedog was built on this and works very well loaded on the fly Smile

You can use a script called 'pets2sfs' to combine all pets in a folder into 1 sfs..
It takes no paramaters, uses Xdialog ...

There are 2 auto mounts scripts available - 'automount.sh' and 'mountall'..
it is not recommended (or needed) to auto load them at boot

The jwmconfig2 tool has a couple of 'issues' - the set wallpaper button does nothing (use SWS instead).. and the button for 'apply gtk theme to jwm' is gone (after shinobars update).. Shame cos that actually works on 4.2..

Also the SWS wallpaper tool will change wallpapers but won't apply the tiled, stretched etc - you need to open the .jwmrc file and edit it directly (easy).

Please note i re-uploaded 1.0 (new md5 sum at top of thread)

It includes hardinfo (whoops), plus a few fixes from radky and shinobar

Any early downloaders might want to re-download - if you are missing hardinfo

Possible future updates include:

- make pmconky appear above desktop wallpaper
- create loader for create_jwm_drives.sh in /etc/init.d, remove it from xwin
- make jwm drives check if drive is usb and show different icon
- update puppy event manager to restart jwm after hotplugging detects new device
- add 'apply gtk theme to jwm' button back to jwmconfig
- update 'startups' script with more process descriptions
- find a tiny VOIP app
- fix filemnt to ask to unsquash sfs4 files
- more additions to /etc/mailcap

Hello sc0ttman,
I can see a lot of work went in to this one and your list of changes made is very detailed letting those interested know whats been improved.

I love that you have all the Drive icons grouped together and prefer yours over the standard Puppy.

I think you'll find in time a few remasters turning up based on this iso.

Well done!

Thanks, it's difficult to list the changes exactly as this went from being Puppy 4.2 -> TurboPup -> Puppy Arcade -> Puplite..

I may have missed a few changes small I made for Puplite, and excluded anything about stripping Puppy Arcade..

Thanks very much Smile I dislike the icons moving around after loading sfs files at reboot, and don't like icons I don't use.

Very Happy My pleasure, thanks for the kind words.

A lot of credit should go to those mentioned in the first post.

There are no plans to update the Xorg version.. Sorry. And I don't know how to do that..

But MU made a puplet based on 4.1 with a newer Xorg, I think...
Not sure of the name...

And I made this with Woofy, occasionally using edit-sfs...
But for some things to be changed correctly, I had to run the ISO through remasterpup2
(the same one as the version in Puplite)..

I cant find a xorg upgrade of 7.3 but I ask , Could I make other version of puppy with Woof but with the same programs and reorganization that you made in Puplite-1.0 ?? If it possible or if you accept to post some tutorial about how to do that ? I ask because you said that not have plans to update Xorg..

I doubt Woof would build anything similar to Puplite, as I said, I used Woofy

But you could build an updated Puppy 4 with Woof, I guess..
You could choose all puppy 4 packages when you build it, no idea how it would finish, though..

(I never used Woof, I don't have the required hardware, but it maybe possible.)

And I would love to help you out, but I don't know how to upgrade Xorg, without breaking other things!

Maybe someone else, who knows more about it can help..

But as Puplite-1.0 iis based on Puppy 4.2, Woof is not really relevant I think..

This is released as is..
I don't plan any more ISO releases, but I will try to help anyone who uses it..

Lets hope people still compile stuff for Puppy 4, to keep it alive!


Some great innovation Cool
Thanks for providing the documentation and pics,
Pics always provides an impression and understanding of what has been achieved.
I am sure some of your code will appear in other 4.x series Puppys.
There are keen compilers of the stable 4.x series, long may it continue.

Great to see such an array of browsers available Smile
Congratulations. Puppy is strengthened by your efforts Smile

Cheers Lobster..

I did do some stuff for this, but I'll say again, most of the good work was done by the guys mentioned in the first thread!

That is: synth, goingnuts and Technosaurus did a lot of work to make it less resource intensive, ttuuxxx compiled lots of tiny apps (very well),tempestuous did all the driver stuff, and shinobar made a lot of the startup/shutdown improvements..

I just cobbled them together! Confused

But if anyone cares, here's my latest to do list (hopefully in the form of a pet):

To do: puplite-1.1
- fix: add "apply gtk theme to jwm" button back to jwmconfig, fix wallpaper button (make it use 'sws')
- fix: add 20 second timeout to 'scrape' and 'meta info' functions in PupTransmission
- update: replace mocp with aqualung, maybe
- update: use Patriots jwm to fix pmconky, if I make it work nicer with fullscreen flash
- update: make pmconky loader in init.d, update jwm theme a little
- update: pmconky - add battery info, temperatures, cpu cores, scaling, etc
- update: add loader for automount in init.d, remove it from xwin
- update: add loader for create_jwm_drives.sh in init.d, remove it from xwin
- update: puppy event manager to run create_jwm_drives (if exec in init.d) and restart jwm after hot-plugging a device
- update: create_jwm_drives.sh so it shows usb drive icon
- update: startups with descriptions for automount, pmconky, jwmdrives
- update: fix Trios sfs-convertor for Puplite and add it
- update: filemnt to ask to unsquash (or convert) incompatible (sfs4) files, when not mounted
- update: more right click options for various file types
- remove: vattery - if pmconky can show decent battery info
- add: a custom simple gui to choose some opengl drivers - nvidias, ati, xorg_full, or web link to others
- add: mpd (music play daemon) - cos why not? its tiny..
- add: get a working google chrome pet, add it to the browser installer
- add: the latest pCD, pmusic and pburn

(goingnuts has kindly helped me solve a few things already.. ideas or suggestions welcome)
