Subject description: release 09 December 2014
 

Carolina Linux is a fork of the Saluki project. Saluki is a woof-build based on Racy 5.2 with Xfce

Project developers: Geoffrey, elroy, and rg66.

Carolina is a fork of the Saluki project. Saluki is a woof-build based on Racy 5.2 with Xfce. The suggested target hardware are computers less than 6 years old. It should run reasonably fast on older machines and netbooks, but Xfce does need a bit more ram and cpu than the standard ROX/Jwm puppy - probably at least 512MB of ram and 1GHz CPU for decent performance.

Our goals are much the same as Saluki's - user-friendliness, innovation, improved look and feel, and solid, functional applications. We will attempt to address the most common complaints of new Puppy users and raise the bar for Puppy usability, customizability, and polish. We intend to enhance what Saluki started.

Features:

    * Xfce-4.10 for the desktop/window manager.
    * The PAE 3.2.13 Linux kernel.
    * Firefox for the browser.
    * Thunderbird email client.
    * Built-in flash support.
    * SMPlayer for the media player (with YouTube support).
    * Clementine for the audio player.
    * Nomacs for image viewing.
    * LibreOffice for your office needs/MS document compatibility.
    * Enhanced custom-menu/extra menu category support not offered in Saluki.
    * Enhanced Xfce options via GUI not offered in Saluki - or currently any other distro, Puppy or otherwise.
    * Larger save-file resizing increments.
    * A huge repository with more than 1000 pets/sfs still growing every day!
    * The latest version of the pup-volume-monitor.
    * Simple, un-cluttered menus, with one application per task and a searchable control panel that makes navigating easy and intuitive.
    * Icons that can be dragged from the menus or the control panel onto the desktop to create symlinks.
    * Highly customizable panels with a multitude of available panel applets, plus a wide array of included themes and fonts, make personalizing your desktop fun.
    * Out of the box OpenGL and SDL makes Carolina ready for eye candy like Compiz and Cairo-Dock, as well as 3D games.


Carolina comes in 2 flavors, regular, and lite (Carolite), for those who like their pups slim.

Download links to ISO and delta:

Carolina 1.3 ISO is now available

Carolina 1.2 delta and ISO are now available

Carolina 1.2-non-pae delta and ISO are now available

Carolite 1.2 non-pae delta and ISO are now available

Does Carolina intend to support 'fd0' drive?

When I had asked jemimah way, way back in Saluki thread, she didn't seem to think it was necessary... some disagreed with that decision including myself!

Is this a typo? Should it be "mounter"?

I'm sure it will be back.

No it's not a typo, pup-volume-monitor-0.1.7: Lightweight drive management.

I reported there was a problem with the pup-volume-monitor to akash_rawal, he kindly rewrote it,
this as fixed problems with unmounting and applications crashing while mounting drives.

added to wiki

I also can't find the ISO?

Is Carolina compatible with other distro repositories? Like Upup, Spup or Dpups?

It does say in medium-large red letters at the top to check back sometime today for an ISO Wink It's the second line of the post.

There's no ISO link now I think, but there will be later tonight!

Thanks for that, starhawk, you are correct.

The ISO should be ready by 4:00 pm GMT. If you try to download the ISO before that (I'm uploading as I write this) chances are very high that you will have downloaded a corrupt ISO.

Carolina is almost totally compatible with Saluki, save for the xfce things, and wary5.
