Is LxPup64 currently abandoned (due to status of Slacko64 base) and we should just work with LxPupApril64 pet instead?

No - they are different beasts - LxPup is the more traditional Woof-CE build, LxPupApril is quite a bit different to install and save updates. I have also not been able to get pup-volume-monitor working for LxPupApril so device handling is definitely not as good.

I will update LxPup64 when it seems appropriate to do so....maybe 01micko will have time to fix the known issues at some point - or maybe 666philb's TahrPup64 will progress to become the base - who knows?

Cheers

Thank you for your explanation.

Aside from any of Barry's stuff, I prefer your LxPup family line. It runs and feels like Puppy and is lightweight. Many of the xfce spins add weight, or other versions function differently, but your LxPup stuff looks just as good and works better.(to me)

I quite like LxPup64. Unlike some other recent Puplets, it does provides things like Samba servers or WiFi managers. So users, particularly new users do NOT have to bother with items to ease their use in the homes. And it uses a version of SAMBA that recognizes every LAN device including all smartDevices which talk to MS/Apple of late.

Experienced users know how to manage these should they need to manually get involved.

It would be my recommendation for one of the existing 64bit Puppy for its ease of use, its matching services normally found in Apple and the upgrades it provides in PPM2 among others (MTP).

Thx again @PeeBee for your foresight and your step to demonstrate an PUP for ALL community users. You, @01Micko, @StemSee, @Dry Falls, @BarryK, @Exton, and the list continues in providing full-functioning, easy-to-use that makes it simple for new users to step into these systems with little to no knowledge to get system useful. And, yet, its structured to all the experience user to set their controls necessary to match their advance knowledge in implementations.

Looking forward as this expands opportunity in its use on 64bit PCs which are a decade old now. These expanded bus and RAM systems afford easy evolution in PUPs as we are seeing. LAN services, wireless services, Touch, Package management, Virtualization, etc.

Please continue to provide ease of use for the new and the experienced home and home network users, as you have here.

I've downloaded both the 32 and 64 bit ISO's of this puppy. I'm having much more success with the 32-bit one, which is good enough to resurrect the only 32-bit desktop PC I have left (currently run by that train wreck that is Vista).

The 64-bit version has an issue with my laptops hardware. Once Xorgwizard has been run, the keyboard no longer works. I've tooth-combed the keyboard settings to no avail.

Hardware used for 64-bit version: Acer Aspire 5738Z.

I will type up a report on the 32-bit version soon, which I'm having much more success with, so far without any issues.

Presentation wise I think they are very user friendly. LXDE definitely wins over JWM for a more modern look and feel, and I personally don't see the need to keep puppies at circa 120mb anymore these-there days. The configuration menus are logical and very organized. Wallpapers as you said are subjective, and the official ones are more than good enough.

Hi David

Xorgwizard is a known problem area with Slacko64 - see post #2 - http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=814841#814841

The 32-bit version should run OK on your 64-bit hardware so maybe thats the way to go?

Cheers

I believe @01Micko has published a generation facility on the WOOFCE git site. As such, there may be a new Slacko64 and derivatives forthcoming.

PostPosted: Fri 22 May 2015, 06:39    Post subject: LxPup64-15.05  

A hybrid iso of LxPup64-15.05 is now available:

LxPup64-15.05.01-hybrid.iso

Main changes from LxPup64-15.03 are:

kernel 4.0.2 from stemsee
firefox38esr
new background, icons (flat-remix) and openbox/gtk theme (Windows8OB)
openssl-1.0.1m
frisbee-1.3.4

getflash-1.5.6 is installed but doesn't work (seems to download a kde4 version of flash-plugin)
suggest download (found via pkgs.org):
flashplayer-plugin-11.2.202.460-x86_64-1alien.txz
click on the downloaded txz to install

Cheers

peebee:

Sorry to ask mate...can this run off a boot cd....

and also can I run it off usb with the multipups I already run
which can be up to a dozen?

In other words extract LxPup64 to a folder on usb
and just add a new entry to the menu list.

Chris.

Hi Chris

Yes and yes - although I never boot off CDs so the only testing I've done (on a previous version) is to dd the iso to a usb stick and bios boot that (uefi booting should also work but I haven't personally tested)..

For manual frugal installs just copy the usual 4 files out of the iso to your frugal directory.

Cheers

Hi Billtoo

Hardinfo is there and works - its in the menu under System -> System -> System Profile and Benchmark (Porteus hangover I guess).
