Puppy Linux version 4.1, or ’410′ is now the latest version of Puppy Linux that has many improvements ‘under the hood’, while there are few immediately apparent changes. This is what’s new:
- Bugs fixed
- Newer kernel, newer software. Also, a new kernel compression system.
- Now there is no zdrv.sfs, meaning that there is one less file to deal with.
- New applications, including:
- F-prot virus scanning for Windows drives
- Blog software, which can be used as a personal diary, or exported.
- Voice over IP client using SIP
Here’s how to put Puppy 410 onto a bootable stick, using Ubuntu Intrepid Ibex. If you don’t already have a bootable USB stick, follow this. If you already have a CD or USB stick version, you can use the ‘Puppy universal installer’ method here.
1. Download a cd disk image (.iso) from here. It should be about 95 megabytes.
5. Open syslinux.cfg. This might be in a folder called ‘boot’ and ‘syslinux’
8. Change the entry to your needs, and change
pmedia=usbflash. If you have the file syslinux.cfg in boot/syslinux, you’ll need to add a slash to
9. Save the file. Safely eject the stick with the eject icon, and then have fun.
