Updated 08-22-2016 at 09:36 AM by exton (More INFO)

My newest Puppy Linux derivative is built from LxPup with the LXDE Desktop environment. (Why reinvent the wheel...). I have added Google Chrome (for Netflix), Gimp, VLC, Emacs and some development tools. If you want more you can download and load (Menu >> Setup >> SFS-Load-on-the-fly) devx_PuppEX_2016.sfs. I have compiled a new kernel – 4.7.1-x86-pae-puppex. Kernel 4.7.1 is the second lastest stable kernel available from as of 160822. PAE (Physical Address Extension) increases...

A new (perfect) 3.17.0 kernel for Puppy Linux

Posted 11-07-2014 at 05:07 PM by exton (Exton's Blog)

I don't know how useful this info is for the average Puppy Linux user is, but today I have compiled a new perfect (as I think) 3.17.0 kernel for my PuppEX installed (not "frugal") system. I call it 3.17.0-puppex.

The kernel can be used in all newer 32 bit Puppy Linux "fully" installed systems. I.e. not "frugal" systems.


1. unzip
2. Place vmlinuz in /boot

UEFI Drove Me Home... to Puppy

Posted 12-07-2013 at 03:14 PM by zaivala

OK, you read my last blog.

I tried everything. LinuxMint Olivia 64 wrote its entire self to my hard drive. But it would not boot. Still got Windoze, only used my D: (sda4) partition. Thought I'd try the latest Ubuntu.

I got about 4 steps into Ubuntu, NOT including saying "Install", and tried to back out as it did not have good options to select. Then I noticed I no longer had ANY WINDOWS. Contacted ASUS techs, and got no help. Was running Mint off a livedisk...

A new version of EXTON Linux MultibootCD 6-OS is ready. Changes: New (latest) versions of Slax, Puppy Linux, 4MLinux, Tiny Core and SliTaz. I have replaced Parted Magic with GParted.

What's the point of running EXTON Linux MultibootCD 6-OS?
Anyone who is slightly interested in Linux and want to see how far the development of the most famous mini Linux systems have reached should try it. Naturally, also all who own older 32 bit computers that require a smaller system, which can...

Puppy Wins the Printing Lottery

Posted 11-22-2009 at 07:51 PM by SrDorothy

The last time I posted about printing I thought my problems were solved with 2 Puppy boxes telling the Mepis box where the printer was...

But shortly after that, Mepis decided the printer was attached to a Puppy box, and of course couldn't print...again!

So now we have 3 Puppy boxes...and they all know where the printer is, woof!
