ShepherdPup - Third Anniversary Edition

ShepherdPup Screenshot

UPDATE: 07/024/11 Now based on Wary 5.1.2

I am pleased to publicly announce the release of our latest version of ShepherdPup Linux (Forum).

This third anniversary edition of ShepherdPup Linux is a self contained freely distributable derivative of Puppy Linux featuring the all new pBiblx2 - Field Wise Bible System (Forum) complete with the many Christian resource materials that we are currently using and developing in our own daily ministries. It is an excellent starting point for you to add your own personal additions as well. (Think "Bible Server Seed")

From its very conception, ShepherdPup has been developed to stand out from other bible software by following this simple motto "It's meant to be given". This new edition takes the concept of bible sharing to even greater depths. You are welcome to use and modify it as your outreach efforts in the Lord see fit.

More details and a functional on line "live demo" of the pBiblx2 CGI is available at:

October 17, 2010 - XOpup 1.0 is released. The XOpup is a result of almost a year of labor and advocacy from forum member mavrothal - see the Forum announcement.

XOpup Desktop

Mavrothal was glad that his persistence plus the help of developers finally led to this release. He acknowledges the help of "01micko with crucial input from Mitch Bradley, Anna, Paul Fox, Edie Owens and ttuuxxx".

Mavrothal continues: XOpup-1 is based on Puppylinux 5.1.1 with several customizations to fit the hardware. In addition to the custom kernels and under the hood optimizations, it includes custom desktop, quickpet, first-run screen, battery monitor, touchpad widget for XO-1, swap-file maker and power management. It also includes other goodies like the free-memory deamon, the lupu-511 "light" version of the Midori browser as default, and all the standard Puppylinux 5.1.1 applications and programs.

Download XOpup 1.0

Puppeee 1.0 for the eee is Released

August 7, 2010 - Puppeee, amazing distro for the eeePC, is released.

puppeee screenshot

In the puppeee home page, Jemimah wrote: Puppeee is an ultralight, user-friendly Linux distribution for the EeePC

Puppeee should work on EeePCs with Intel GMA900, GMA950, and GMA3150 graphics cards. This is most 10 inch or smaller models. There is partial support for the 1101HA/1201HA with the GMA500 using Xvesa.


Jemimah has described Puppeee's development in the Forum: Puppeee comes with a custom ultralight preemptive kernel optimized specifically for Atom or Celeron processors - the result is fast boot time, high performance, and low power usage.

Download Puppeee and read the install instructions given in the same page. For feedback, visit the puppeee forum.
