Forum member playdayz shares his puplet uPup based on Ubuntu Karmic.
This uPup was made with Woof.. It is basically a default build of Karmic Puppy, with two exceptions: 1) the GLX/DRI video driver files have been included and enabled; 2) few extra files have been added.
Ideally uPup will correctly install your video card and also install the glx/dri files. That can be checked by Menu -> System -> System status and config -> Hardinfo -> Display and scroll down to see that glx/dri are enabled.
Download the upup-458.ISO 143 MB with md5sum = 3aa69bfae1578b4e42fcec6a8dc876ef
To see more download URLs, or if you are having problems with your video card, read playdayz' forum post.
Advantages of uPup: uPup Karmic has glibc 2.10 which allows it to run SRWare Iron 4.0.227 and presumably other cutting edge programs; no other puplet currently has a glbc > 2.8. Firefox 3.6b6pre and Seamonkey 2 run nicely.. Flashplayer 10 also seems to work without crashing .. Even the newest Flashplayer 10.0.42 runs nicely as does Flashplayer 10.1pre..
