XOpup development starts
Oct 23, 2009 - Puppy Linux developer ttuuxxx just received 2 units of the XO-1 laptops for the development of XOpup (puplet for the XO-1).
".. I received the 2X laptops today, They are the current model, I did specifically ask for the next generation or prototype, the reason is that, if this takes like 6 months [like 2.14X did], then once it's finished it could be useless. Also the power adapters are North American.. so I have to go out and buy 2x 12V adapters."
- see the Forum
for the full post.
According to Forum member mavrothal, as many as 1 million XO users can benefit from the expected snappy XOpup.
ttuuxxx has successfully updated Puppy Linux 214R, a special puplet built by Forum members pakt and dougal using Puppy Linux version 2.14 which, in turn, was based on Linux kernel version 2.6.18. Called 214X, ttuuxxx's puplet sports new libraries and Firefox 3.5
ttuuxxx helped a lot in the development of Puppy Linux CE 4.2 and, since the release of 4.2CE, has ben releasing a Firefox version of Puppy Linux that he called "Puppies
". Look here
for Puppies 4.2.1 and there
for Puppies 4.3.1.
