Posted 11-13-2014 at 01:14 AM by exton (Exton's Blog)
Updated 12-21-2014 at 07:01 AM by exton (New version of PuppEX (141124))

EDIT 141221
A new version of PuppEX Tahr is ready. Most important changes: I've changed kernel from 3.17.6 to 3.18 and installed NVIDIA Graphics driver 340.65. The Nvidia driver will be used if your computer/card is "modern" enough. I've also added Tahrpup's Service Pack 6.0.1 in PuppEX version 141221. (Kernel 3.18.1 can't be used in Puppy/PuppEX just yet).

EDIT 141209
Today I have uploaded a new version of PuppEX Tahr. It uses kernel 3.17.6-puppex. Kernel 3.17.6...

At the moment the server cluster is operating on its own. Each node contains a copy of the Pyplate CMS with its own instance of an SQLite database. The next step is it to make all three clusters work together. I've updated Pyplate so that I can use MySQL instead of SQLite, and I've imported a Pyplate database into...

A new (perfect) 3.17.0 kernel for Puppy Linux

1. unzip
2. Place vmlinuz in /boot
