Back to Basics

02 Mar

Reverted to SimplyPuppy-0.36 – to get a stable and versatile Distro base up and running asap.

SimplyPup was an experiment based on Puppy Linux 2.14 to meet the computing needs of the General Public while keeping the structure and programmes as simple and light as possible. It also includes a comprehensive Help folio and my own innovative script for resetting cups to the original settings if the printer stuffs up.

Included here is a developmental snapshot of SimplyPuppy-0.36. You will notice there’s some programmes not included that were discussed earlier. However, the inclusion of Skype, aMSN, XMMS, Muppywebcam, Streamtuner and Xsane should fill the void. In the initrd.gz I will be adding pfix=noram booting option.

The next post will include the additions plus any modifications or scripting.
