elephantis has made a tahrpup theme for palemoon/firefox https://addons.mozilla.org/en-GB/firefox/addon/tahrpup-6-0-2/

tahrpup has the open source 'brcmsmac' wireless drivers for modern broadcom devices, however some users may need the proprietary WL driver compiled by 'peebee' here https://www.copy.com/s/qWQ1BkPMDnPPFk7C
k3.14.20_2 for 6.0.2 & k3.14.20 for 6.0

please read the post below this one to see any outstanding issues with tahrpup.

updates & bugfixes
If you open Quickpet you'll see a 'tahrpup update/bug fixes' button. As bugs are discovered and fixed, clicking on this button will install all the latest fixes, so it's a good idea to check this regularly.
After numerous fixes, they'll all be combined into a puppy service pack. when a service pack is available, you'll be prompted about it automatically when you open the puppy package manager.

there is a kernel update for 6.0 here http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=819799#819772


please posts bugs in the bugs thread http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=805292#805292

this second post is for outstanding issues with tahrpup, and will be updated as things are discovered and fixed.

1. xorgwizard can fail and leave you at a blank screen requiring hard
poweroff if you mess about changing drivers too much.

2. (6.0 only as fixed in 6.0.2) ndiswrapper ... for the PAE you need to type
Code:
depmod -a
into a terminal to get it working.
for the noPAE iso you'll need the .pet here http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?mode=attach&id=81453

3. some VIA graphic cards are reported not to work

4. some QT5 apps such as the latest calibre require proprietary graphic drivers to work

.................................................

FIXED when booting with two savefiles, and at the point where you have to choose which savefile to load, some usb keyboards aren't recognised... plugging into a different usb port may help (you'll need to update the kernel see here http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=819799#819772

FIXED remaster puppy cd isn't working with save to folder

Congrats indeed!

Cheers!

Just done a frugal install on my HP Desktop with AMD FX-6100. Everything is working well. Wifi working. Save file created and rebooted. All programs tried so far functioning well.

Have successfully installed Cups drivers for my Brother Laser printer. Printing working.

Thank you. Great job on this version of puppy.

Tahrpup 6.0 released

We have another official Puppy Linux release!

Since I retired from developing Puppy Linux early in 2014, keen members of the Puppy-community forked my Woof Puppy-builder, naming it woof-CE.

Since then, 01micko has been active with a Puppy built from Slackware packages, with a new release expected soon.

The guys have also been working on another pup, built from Ubuntu Trusty Tahr packages, under the leadership of Phil Broughton (666philb in the Puppy Forum), and this has now reached release status. It is named "Tahrpup" and is version 6.0.
