Is Puppy Lucid 5.1 based on Ubuntu?
Puppy is his own dog
We have a 'woof' building system
that allows us to build Puppy from the kernel
and binaries of other distros (pre compiled programs and libraries)
Puppy can be built from Ubuntu, Debian, Slackware, Arch and t2
with unique Puppy scripts, wizards and optimisation.

Does Puppy Lucid 5.1 use some Ubuntu files?
Yes indeed.
Puppy uses his own packaging systems (quickpet and pet)
Configuration and programs are Puppy specific
Lucid adds the tested efforts of some popular Ubuntu binaries.

How should Puppy Lucid be run?
Any which way you like
Once in memory, Puppy is fast whatever the method.
Run from DVD, CD, USB keydrive, SD, Hard Drive
or even in multi-session self auditing format
(files and updates saved on CD or DVD)


SFS files for Lucid

Puppy 5.2 . . . coming soon
Puppy 6 . . . coming . . .
