July 19, 2010 - Quirky 1.20 NOP is here! See the Forum. Download quirkyNOP from here (user=puppy password=linux), 100 MB, md5sum = 0a5c83fa3331cc32ed895d1e047f740d
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 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. .
Nov 28, 2009 - BoxPup 4.3.1 is also available. Look for it also in the NOP download folder. Read more from the Forum.
Oct 25, 2009 - NOP, the excellent Puppy Linux series by Forum member Gray, has a 4.3.1 version! Get it from here, now version r1. (user=puppy password=linux).
Gray describes NOP 4.3.1:
"Nearly Office Pup is a puplet with office apps removed and using the XFCE desktop. The idea is that the puplet is run from frugal install or USB stick and an appropriate SFS file of your favourite office apps is used. Usually this would be OpenOffice, but could be Goffice (Abiword & Gnumeric) or even Koffice.
For Goffice (Abiword & Gnumeric) try the goffice-43.sfs file at the above site.
NOP 431 is based on Puppy 4.3.1 but with the Xfce / Thunar desktop replacing JWM / Rox, and of course Abiword & Gnumeric, Homebank, notecase removed. Opera 10 replaces Seamonkey as the web browser.
Pwidgets 2.5 is included but not active by default."
For feedback, visit the Forum.
NOTE: Do not confuse this with NOP 4.1.3 ! NOP 413 was Woof-built from 4.2.1 packages. It is in the same repository (user=puppy password=linux) as 4.3.1.
Caution in the use of SFS: you have to convert it first to sfs4 (check the menu for the sfs converter). See the example use of sfs4 here.
