Puppy Linux 6.0 "Tahrpup" 发布

jopen 6年前

Puppy Linux是另外一种Linux发行。它的不同之处在于,Puppy是格外的小,然而又充满了特性。Puppy能从64M的存储设备启动,并且,整套系统 都能在内存中运行。有很多自启动运行光盘的Linux发行,它们需要不停地从光盘读取数据才能运行,Puppy与它们不一样,Puppy整个装载在内存 中。这意味着,所有的应用程序一眨眼的功夫就能启动,并且立即对用户的输入作出响应。Puppy Linux能从flash卡或者是任何的USB存储设备启动(这是flash-Puppy),或者光盘(这是live-Puppy),或者Zip disk及LS/120/240 Superdisk(这是zippy-Puppy),或者软盘(这是floppy-Puppy),或者硬盘(这是hard-Puppy)。它甚至可以使用 一张多区段烧录的CD-R/DVD-R以将所有内容保存回CD/DVD中。
We have another official Puppy Linux release!

Since I retired from developing Puppy Linux early in 2014, keen members of the Puppy-community forked my Woof Puppy-builder, naming it woof-CE.

Since then, 01micko has been active with a Puppy built from Slackware packages, named "Slacko Puppy", latest is 5.7 with a new release expected soon.

The guys have also been working on another pup, built from Ubuntu Trusty Tahr binary packages, under the leadership of Phil Broughton (666philb in the Puppy Forum), and this has now reached release status. It is named "Tahrpup" and is version 6.0.

Tahrpup is an official release of Puppy Linux for those who would like the package manager to have compatibility with the large collection of packages in the Ubuntu repository, and able to install and use most of them.
Some default package choices, such as VLC, UI and system operations, are different from the Slacko Puppy build, which may be other reasons users might choose Tahrpup.
