Code:
Hey

Well I finally released the new 50Mb Puppy ...

It can be found at :

    http://www.murga.org/_puppy/puppy-1.0.2-opera-custom.iso

It is pretty late here so I'll just comment on the highlights :

  + Opera version, uses Opera for mail too, so Sylpheed is out.
  + Full set realmedia codecs (so I can watch Euronews).
  + Textmaker replaces AbiWord purely due to the enhanced Word compatibility.
  + VIM installed as default VI handler
  + PERL and a Puppy friendly version of NdisWrapper.
  + A couple of Guesttoo's packages, like "top", "undeb", "unrpm" and "torsmo".
  + Improved setting for RXVT (A decent scrollback, smaller font, etc).
  + New splash screen (that does not scare the kids any more).
  + Boot options allow booting with ACPI off (so it works on my laptop).
  + A cool background contributed by Rhino ;-)
  + It is about 1Mb below the (50Mb) Mini-CD limit !!
  + XGalaga and a few more optional packages where added.
  + All the TCL libs are included to address issues with the last build.
  + And some other stuff I cannot remember right now ...

  ZZZzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
 
Known issues :
 
   + I didn't include TCC although I think there may have been enough room.
   + Spent a lot of time trying to get Siag to work reliably, but it kept on crashing
     during use for no reason.
   + So Siag has been replaced with ABS as the spreadsheet, which really annoys me.
   + Some spelling errors

Lobster has already tried it (surprise surprise) ...

So I know it works ;-)

Cheers
JohnM

Hi, just downloaded and bootet John's new 50m Opera Puppy. Wow!!
Now that's a splash screen..!
So now we have:
A Penguin - that stands for Linux in general
A Puppy in the background - It's for the Puppy flavor of Linux
A Judge Dread - Make sure everything is legal Smile Smile
---
Just kidding.. It's great! I like the blueish theme. And the menu is clearly readable!

I alos installed it to hdd with grubconfig - runs out of the box! No problems.
(Would be nice, to have this slash screen also after hdd install with grub..?)
I am writing the post with it...
Just torsmo doesn't run.. misses a libGTK2...

Great work!!
PS

I forgot one thing :

TkVNC replaced by tightvnc

Anyway, the "Unleashed" packages for this stuff will be online soon (I've been a tad busy).

Cheers
