UPup from Woof the Puppy Linux Builder

March 4, 2010 (Update) - UPup Made with Woof and with GLX/DRI is shared by playdayz (now version 4.58).

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..

Any possibility of an ArchPup?

Puppy Linux is very nice, but it will be better if some plugins, are available, for example: Java, Flash, open codecs.

Also, localization is very important, like translation to Portuguese_Brazilian. In my country there are many older machines, Pentium and Pentium 2, K6-2, and other computers that are old but working.

Answer: Flash and codecs are already included in the official Puppy. There are Java PET (packages) available, also Flash version updates (use the search box at the right). Search also for Brazil or Portuguese.
