Category: Desktop
Desktop environment: JWM
Architecture: x86
Based on: Slackware

Media: Live
The last version | Released: 3.50 | March 21, 2007

BasicLinux – a mini-Linux that boots from HD, FD or CDrom and runs in a 4mb ramdisk. It has a fully-featured shell, an easy-to-use editor, and a variety of useful utilities.

In particular, BasicLinux is well equipped for internet use: it can dial an ISP, browse the web, send/receive mail, and download/upload files. It can also share an internet connection with other computers.

BasicLinux is a good distribution for an old 386/486 with limited RAM and small harddrive. The optional HD installation package puts BasicLinux on its own HD partition, where standard applications can be installed (including X, Netscape and GCC).

It uses a small kernel and busybox to provide a low-RAM Linux, capable of browsing the web, doing email, and functioning as an X terminal. The current release of BasicLinux is particularly suitable for old laptops — it has PCMCIA capability and includes MagicPoint (a presentation tool similar to PowerPoint).

It comes in two versions: one boots from a DOS harddrive, the other boots from floppies. Both versions have the option to install themselves to a Linux partition on the harddrive.

Minimum requirements (DOS version):
– Intel 386 or compatible
– 3 mb RAM
– DOS (or Windows 95/98 in DOS mode)

Minimum requirements (Floppy version):
– Intel 386 or compatible
– 12 mb RAM
– two 1.44 mb floppy disks

Architecture: x86
Based on: Puppy Linux

Media: Live CD
The last version | Released: 6.0.2.2 | November 25, 2015

Librepup – a Libre Linux distribution, based on Puppy, but built on Trisquel packages.

It’s a puplet based on tahrpup 6.0.2 that:
– Uses Trisquel 7 packages instead of Ubuntu 14.04 ones; most package versions are the same as in tahrpup
– Replaces Pale Moon with QupZilla
– Replaces Linux with Linux-libre and does not ship the non-free firmware required for some devices

The Librepup developer philosophy:

“I believe every distro should be libre by default, with clearly-labeled non-free add-ons for the users that decide they want them. For example – I’d like Puppy (and any other distro) to ship with Linux-libre, while offering users the ability to switch to Linux. Otherwise, free software won’t become the norm in the software industry.

Therefore, the process of creating Librepup derivatives has been automated and simplified (see later). If you’re interested in creating Puppy derivatives, I encourage you to use Librepup as a base, since other Puppy releases contain non-free components and may have additional, hidden ones: it’s a privacy and security risk for your users. Even if you wish to add non-free components to your derivative (which is strongly discouraged), a Librepup derivative with one or more, non-free components is much better (for your users) than a traditional Puppy derivative, with an unknown number of such threats, especially if these components are labeled properly as non-free ones and the user deliberately accepts the risk involved in using them, despite of all warnings.

All packages that work on tahrpup (except third-party drivers, which need to be rebuilt) work on Librepup as well.”

Digipup – a lightweight live Linux distribution, a derivation of the Puppy Linux with a focus on amateur radio.

Digipup contains three of Dave Freese’s (W1HKJ) most popular free software offerings for amateur radio: Fldigi, which does a great job on digital sound card modes like PSK, RTTY, MFSK, and others; Fl_logbook, a small, fast, efficient logging program to record your contacts; and Geoid, which computes the bearing and distance between sites using either latitude and longitude or Maidenhead grid locators.

Fldigi allows you to connect your computer to your transceiver and use its sound card to send and receive digital signals like PSK31, RTTY, MFSK, Olivia, CW, and others.
