Retro-Precise Puppy 5.4.1

The "normal" Precise Puppy 5.4.1 has just been released, see previous blog announcement:

Retro-Precise is almost the same, except built with a non-PAE kernel. The differences are explained further here:

It is recommended that you use the "normal" Precise Puppy, unless you have a Pentium-M PAE-incapable CPU, or cannot get nVidia graphics to work on the "normal" Precise.


Note, the .iso (live-CD) file is much bigger than the "normal" Precise .iso file, as the former has gzip compression, the latter xz compression.
The "retro" Precise runs noticeably faster on old slow CPUs, due to the gzip compression.
