e3 is written in assembly language and is tiny, 13KB. It is static and runs independent of any libc. I have it in two places, in the initial ramdisk and in the main Puppy filesystem, at /bin/e3.
It is the Ubuntu e3 (version 2.7.1) that crashes. How they have managed to get such a simple application to crash I don't know. It looks like the same package as in Debian.
Puppy 4.x has e3 version 2.7.0, compiled back in January 2006. That works fine. I grabbed the latest, 2.7.1, and compiled it in Jaunty pup, that works fine too.
So, now using my own e3 PET package for Jaunty pup.
