Precise Puppy 5.4.95 (5.5RC)

March 06, 2013 — BarryK
Yep, this is the 5.5 Release Candidate!

Download from here:

This pup is built with the same 3.2.29 PAE-enabled i686 SMP kernel as earlier Precise puppies.

If you want non-PAE and/or a later kernel, with possibly improved and more drivers, plus other enhancements, please see pemasu's Upup Precise, which is also a pup built from Ubuntu Precise Pangolin binary packages:

Note, I have decided to release only one Precise Puppy, with the 3.2.29 kernel. Pemasu is providing the variant and other enhancements.

" (25.6 MB) so when new users come from distrowatch to try puppy for the first time, they will get a non-boot black screen. unless you are also planning to mention pemasus works in the release notes a significant percentage of disappointed new users will be produced.
