It is Puppy Linux that is Debian based and uses apt-get for seamless package management for both Debian packages and Puppy Pet packages. At present I am running the Slackware version of Puppy called Slacko and learning how to use the compiling program Puppy uses called Woof2. It is my preference over Mepis for the time being as it is moving forward in leaps and bounds. Also have Pussy (Foxy Roxy) on another partition but it is somewhat crude to date... however apt-get works in it already and thats exciting to me. If I understand correctly Puppy Lupu is also Debian based but uses only the Puppy package manager. :popcorn:


I'd be willing to spend more quality time with Puppy and its derivatives if it wasn't so juvenile. All the Pup-this and Woof-that and now you're talking HotRoxPussy and Foxy Roxy??? Gimme a break. What is this, Romper Room? Captain Kangaroo?

Technically it's an amazing project, but I just can't get past the kiddie stuff. Call me shallow.


Agree the names are enough to gag you but the progress is astonishing. :eek:

No question. Every time I've played with it I'm impressed with it technically.

I just wish an adult would get involved. Call me an old grouch.

Okay, Uncle Mark, you're an old grouch. Now get back to work on those Vi$ta boxes, and be careful not to strip those Phillips screwheads.

Just did a Debian Live install yesterday myself and it went very smooth. Setting it up as a file server for the most part.

One was finished last night. Typical fake AV trojan infection, relatively easy cleanup, but the machine hadn't had any real maintenance in 3-4 years. (For example, it had never had Service Pack 2 installed.) Took longer to do all the updates and detritus cleanup and defragging than it did to do the actual malware fix.

Second box was a three year old HP that according to the Vista Startup Repair utility and from BootRec.exe /ScanOS didn't have an operating system. Owner was cool with doing the Factory Recovery if that was the quickest and cheapest fix. Which it was. Will finish up with all the Windows Updates and install an AV and hand it back to him this evening pretty much like it was when he got it new.

Neither job made me much money, but they kept me off the streets for a couple evenings and oughtta be enough for a sack of White Castles and an ice cream cone.

And I didn't even have to break out my screwdrivers. Rule of thumb is that if I crack the case, the price doubles.

Mepis has always gotten out of date before a release. Actually just after a release. I wouldn't recommend the latest hardware if I were interested in running Mepis.
