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.

New NOP Puppy

July 19, 2010 - Quirky 1.20 NOP is here! See the Forum. Download quirkyNOP from here (user=puppy password=linux), 100 MB, md5sum = 0a5c83fa3331cc32ed895d1e047f740d

quirkyNOP desktop

Gray describes the new NOP:

This is a 100Mb remaster of Quirky 1.2 in the tradition of previous NOPs.

Nearly Office Pups are so called because office apps have been removed ready for you to tack on an SFS file of your favourite office suite (recommend Open Office).

Replaced JWM/ROX with XFCE 4.6.2 / Thunar
Replaced SeaMonkey browser suite with Firefox 3.6.6 / Sylpheed
Removed Abiword, Gnumeric, Homebank, Ayytm, Geany
Added Transmission
Added Pwidgets 2.27
Removed Nvidia proprietary driver - if you have an Nv card you would probably want to add the full Nvidia driver anyway!

Note that this is not an upgrade for previous NOP - it will need a fresh savefile.

MyWolfe 019


This release of MyWolfe has a few new items in it and I have moved back up to the Xorg-7.5 now that I have things working right. It also has Xserver-1.7.1 it is close to one of Barry Kauler's Quirky build.

Thanks to scOtman for the program jwm-wallpaper, but I had to edit some because of the wbar. Wbar is at the top of the screen and I like it. Some who tried MyWolfe-018 got to see my first attempt at wbar I have come to understand it more now.

Again thanks to jemimah for here pwireless2 I have put pwireless2-1.0 in and it is doing a great job. She also introduce me to gogglesmm and I still have it in most of my builds.

Because of scOtman I was able to build a few small scripts to allow a user to change the system sounds though the control panel found on the wbar.

There is one to change the startup sound, one for shutdown sound, and last but not least, one for reboot sound.

Rox is back to being the default file manager, to put is simply it just works it may not have all the features I may want but it works. But I did disable the pinboard so as to allow Jwm to control the background image.

You can see screen shot of MyWolfe-019 here. I am using the same images as MyWolfe-018 for nothing has changed in the gui part.

It still has Gimp-2.6.8 I know there out the 2.6.10 but I have not had the time to work with it and Barry does a better job of it than me.

It has Picasa to help you organize and do simple editing of your pictures and if you want you can create and upload to a online data base and never lose them.

As with all my last builds it has Google-chrome 5.0.375.99 stable I did not put in the development release for I was not sure if it was ready for prime time.

I also want to thank Barry Kauler for his fine work on the woof build system I have come to know it inside and out. What a learning experience.

Last note is if a pet will run in Quirky it should then run in MyWolfe for I have not change any of the libs.

You can download it here MyWolfe-019
