Hello Everyone,
After months of testing and experimenting with many different Applications / Artwork / icons / themes TEENpup 2008 is ready.
While I wait for links to allow TEENpup's download to be setup, here's some screenshots for you. You should be able to download it in a couple of days.

Hello Lobster,
The iso is 499Mb's in size and is running fine on a Pentium III 800Mhz 128Mb's of RAM PC with Swap. If TEENpup 2.14 runs fine on your PC this version should as well.
To allow TEENpup to still work on old PC's that may no longer work with Puppy 3 series, TEENpup 2008 is still based on Puppy 2.14
This will be the last version of TEENpup based on the 2 series.
You can expect the next version to be based on Puppy 3 or 4 series depending on which turns out to be better.

I can tell you one thing, there has been alot of changes done and hopefully a few pleasant surprises will be found while using TEENpup 2008.

Yey! I've been waiting for this. This should be great. You've obviously spent a lot of time on it. Will it automatically support USBs when plugged in? Will it also recognise hard drives automatically if I do a full install (i suppose it does)? Thx again for this excellent release! Very Happy

Edit: Also, TEENpup uses the .pup extensions doesn't it for installing applications (I'm new to it).

Hello denny14,
TEENpup2008 supports both dotpup and pet packages.
As it is based on Puppy 2.14, you can try Puppy series 3 packages, but expect a lot not to work. As always, try any new package first while running live if you have TEENpup installed to your Hard Drive.
TEENpup2008 still uses MUT, Pmount and Pdrive which require you to mount your USB's etc manually. I prefer this method over automounting of USB's as it makes it easier to fix if you have a problem when a USB stick won't mount.

I have always have TEENpup installed to my Hard Drives.
I have 2 Hard Drives which are partitioned into 5 separate partitions and have never had any problems.
TEENpup2008 has been uploaded to Puppylinux.ca and are awaiting conformation that all is well with the iso and will post here when all is good to go.

Very nice looking! I have a couple questions.
Are you using Firefox?
What version of Frostwire did you use?
What version of Java?
Any Ipod support like your previous version?

I've been trying to get Frostwire to work in 3.01 and 2.14r 1.01 with newest versions of Java and Frostwire and have been having problems getting it to connect to internet.
I'll be watching for your upload, I have a friend who's kid will love this current version. Very Happy

Thanks. You've answered all my questions. I can't wait for it come out. It seems great and it's one of the only distributions that has complete support out of the box with codecs, etc. That's why I didn't really like Ubuntu and Fedora. I'm going to do a full install and get rid of Windows. Smile Thanks again!

Hello mbutts,
I experimented with Firefox, Opera, Flock and in the end decided to update Seamonkey to version 1.1.8 and add a few plug-ins to improve usability. As all these Browsers aren't to hard to add to Puppy/TEENpup I thought I'd add more Apps instead.
Gtkpod is still in TEENpup 2008 and the version of Frostwire is 4.13.3 and version of Java is still 1.5.08

All in all I have continue to build on improving an already sound base with TEENpup 2.14 Added more Apps again.
TEENpup 2008 in more evolution than revolution.

Thanks ttuuxx and john biles for the quick responses.
I think that I had tried to install the firefox pet but didn't have a big enough personal storage size due to limited space on the hard drive. I could not make it bigger. I now have more space freed up on that hard drive so I'll retry to install it first on 3.01 with a new personal sfs file.
I am supplying a couple friends with disks so they can try Puppy. One is an adult, the other a teen. It will save me from having to reinvent the wheel. I don't mind rolling my own custom Puppy but it can be a drag trying to make a full blown custom Puppy for others.
Teenpup and FH have enough things in them to give new users a very good demo of what Linux is all about.

Thanks for that, Its always nice to hear good feedback Smile
If you have have temp space problems, A quick way around it is to convert your pet package to a tgz and extract it to a directory then copy the files from it to the corresponding directories.
in a terminal type pet2tgz name.pet <--- has to be the package name with the .pet included, Then click the tgz file and extract it. and copy to the proper directories.

Hi all

This looks absolutely fantastic - cant wait to get it on the Hdd - and it really does look as if it truly has the potential to be a very viable replacement for Wdoze.

Really pleased to see such dedication - this is what most linux newbies want - no more headaches trying to make it work - turn it on and go.

Brilliant - regards and many thanks - Ray MK

Very nice.

Someone (I guess it has to be me) has to point it out...

The plural of CD is CDs.
The Plural of MP3 is MP3s.
The plural of Photo is Photos.
etc, etc.

The wandering apostrophe strikes without warning. Shocked

Posted in the interests of conveying a good impression to new Puppians who may have gone to school.
