LxPup64-14.12.00.iso

THIS IS EXPERIMENTAL & BASED ON ALPHA SLACKO64 SO USE WITH CAUTION

LxPup64 - a 64bit version of Puppy with the LXDE desktop
a derivative of Slacko64 Alpha (Slacko64-5.9.1) produced by 01micko
but with kernel 3.17.4 as produced by 666philb for TahrPup64

Built using the Porteus 64bit LXDE module, but with updated components: OpenBox, PCManFM + libfm, LxPanel, LxAppearance from pkgs.org

Includes a 64-bit version of pup-volume-monitor

Security components openssl, bash and wget have also been updated

Includes gyro's savefolder updates

Gnumeric bug fix as identified on the Slacko64 thread is included

64 bit Chromium sfs can be added

Sub_title: Known problem areas
 

Major problem is that xorgwizard does not work in Slacko64 Alpha meaning that if your graphics doesn't work OOTB there is no fallback possible

There are also problems with installers mentioned on the Slacko64 Alpha thread so only recommended install method is a manual frugal install

Not possible to select from multiple savefolders/savefiles if using a usb keyboard

My nvidia graphics only partially works with the nouveau driver - web browsers can cause a system crash

A few Porteus bits may be present in the menu that don't work

Not exactly a problem, but the panel in this version is LxPanel rather than LxPanelX so it behaves a little differently to the panel in 32-bit LxPup.

Nice... fast... should work out to be a very solid distro! Keep after it!

Just started testing the 64 version, only major problem I encountered so far is 'CUPS' printer setup. It seems it can't find the http://localhost:631 for a setup (using the hplip_64 from the PPM on- hp-1150 410 all-in-one printer)

On with testing.....

Hi PeeBee,

Any chance for UEFI boot on this one ? That would be awesome !!
I lost my last PC last week, and got a W8.1 (UEFI) laptop. I would love to run Puppy again, but only have MBR booting LxPups...
