Quirky Puppy 5.4.91

February 27, 2013 — BarryK
It has been a very long time since the last official release of Quirky Puppy! Yes, despite the rather odd version number, this is a new public official release of Quirky.

See the announcement and release notes here:

...please do read that page, as this pup is different!

Hmmm, I wondered if Quirky is still listed at Distrowatch, given that the last release was November 2010 -- yes, it is still there. Ladislav, please announce this new release!

"I have started a thread in the Forum, for feedback on the special features of Quirky:

Sfs_load fix K3.8
Username: Terryphi
"01micko has produced a fix for sfs_load which causes a crash when used with Kernel 3.8 (Quirky and Racy.) I have tested it and it works but requires reboot before testing. See bottom of page in this Forum thread:

boot from single file.
Username: aarf
"so why is this different, needed, or better than "boot from iso" which has been mastered long ago by other distros eg. knoppix
