Fatdog64 520 final

September 11, 2011 — BarryK
Fatdog64 is a 64-bit x86 version of Puppy Linux. Kirk has announced a new release version, 520:

So, you guys with 64-bit CPUs might want to give this pup a run! I also, finally, have a PC with 64-bit CPU, my recently acquired Acer Aspire 5742G, so I will be downloading fatdog64 also.

GCMartin sent me a pm informing that TaZoc has created a variant of Fatdog64 511, with many enhancements, named Lighthouse64: TaZoc also has a website:

"TaZoc, Kirk and Jamesbond (no relation to 007 - or so we are told) have done Puppy proud. I have used Fatdog quite a bit and it is reliable and makes active use of secure downloading to spot. Good range of 64bit compiled programs. Even our Puppy vampires are doing good . . .

"smokey01, Yes, those Mageia DVDs! That was most appreciated, it got me going with Mageia and then I was able to create Drake Puppy. Which reminds me, I do want to bring out another release of Drake Puppy soon. As kirk has paved the way, especially by creating many of the PETs recompiled for 64-bit that go into every Puppy, I could even create a 64-bit x86 Drake Puppy.

"Barry, as you know I test, reported to you, and am still running your last PAE Drake. You Should KNOW This PAE is low on resource usage. IT is stable It is as fast as any other RAM based system It runs on all of my present 32bit P4/Athlon PCs without issue, for the most part This is a very good platform that exploits my small AM 32bit PCs as well as my large RAM 32bit PCs equally without issues or fail. This was a very good implementation by you as a starter for 32bit use in this community. A 64bit companion would certainly exploit the 64bit platforms that have seen enormous increases over the past year in this community. (I judge this by simple reviewing what people are showing as the PCs they report) This note does NOT mean to forget P3 usa nor to abandone the 1999+ platforms you have supported. It merely shows how you expanded the support of the 1999+ platforms with the Drake entry you shared. Thanks
