FatDog64 710 is released.


FatDog is a close relative to Puppy Linux. It was actually forked (see down the page) from Puppy Linux 4.0 in 2008.

The developers are long time Puppy users and tinkerers; kirk, jamesbond and more recently SFR. Of course there are many other notable contributors in the spirit of Open Source. Their initial intention was to fatten puppy but this quickly led to 64 bit development (2009) which was the first in Puppy's history.

Initially, FatDog was built with the T2 build system and used a modified PET packaging system and package manager however the 700 series was a complete rethink with the entire distro compiled from source leveraging scripts from Linux From Scratch (LFS) and Beyond Linux From Scratch (BLFS). Package management now uses slaptget/gslapt which are compatible with tgz, tbz, tlz and txz packages. (Similar to a popular old school distro still in existence ).

For more information and download links visit the FatDog 710 thread at the Puppy Linux Discussion Forum or visit The Desk of James (release announcement).

Enjoy!

    Slacko 6.3.2 is released!


    I am excited to announce the release of Puppy Linux Slacko 6.3.2. It is available in 32 bit and 64 bit versions.

    This might be called a bugfix release to Slacko 6.3.0 but it is so much more than that!

    This is the first ever official puppy to support UEFI booting for both for 32 and 64 bit versions and the same ISO image will boot legacy BIOS PCs as well. And there is so much more that is improved, such as the theming, sound detection, firewall, default application management plus our home grown apps such as pMusic.

    It is still based on upstream 14.1 but has all the latest security and bugfix updates. There is much more going on here than a point release can convey that is why we have given it 2 points!

    The official release announcement is available for 32 bit and 64 bit.

    For more information you can visit the release notes page and the download page.

    I Hope you enjoy using Slacko!
