Puppy 5.2

Superceded by Puppy 5.28-005

Podcast: OGG MP3

This is *not* a crucial bug-fix update because we simply have not found enough bugs to justify that. However it does contain a few nice enhancements.
=> PupControl 1.3 by radky starts with the Setup Icon on the desktop
=> Desksetup Icon Templates by 01micko to make it easy to adjust icon placement on Desktop
=> Quickpet 4.1 - the latest version by 01micko, updates the contents of Puppy Package Manager and SFS Get - There are a lot of nice new packages available - including both LibreOffice3 3.3 and OpenOffice 3.3 prepared by jim1911
=> gparted 0.5.1 - reverted because some people had trouble - if you want 0.6.2 it is in PPM
If you are already using PupComboPlus (which includes PupControl 1.3 and Desksetup) this will install right over it.
You can also install PupComboPlus over this update (LupuNews -> Fun tab).

"Lucid Puppy 5.2 is a Puppy through and through. What that means is that the *architecture* is pure Puppy. It just happens to be that many of the building materials (applications, utilities, libraries) are Ubuntu binaries. With Puppy founder Barry Kauler’s Woof Build System the packages could just as easily have been Slackware or Arch binaries." Larry Short & Mick Amadio

Puppy 5.2 uses unique Puppy scripts. Puppy loads and runs fast, entirely from Ram. Puppy has optimised programs and wizards.
Puppy 5.2 uses Puppy 'Woof' creation technology. Puppy Woof allows Puppy to be partially built from Debian and Ubuntu compiled programs and libraries. Puppy 5.2 retains the name 'Lucid Puppy' but uses added 10.10 binaries from Maverick Meerkat and programs compiled with Puppys unique devx add on.
Using Woof, Puppy can be built with packages from almost any distro. Wary is built with t2 binaries and is suited for older hardware. Spup uses slackware and dpup uses Debian.
All the unique underlying infrastructure and boot scripts and methodology, is in Woof. Above Woof, there is a layer of specialised system-level PETs, software packages created by Puppy users. The scripts vary in different Puppy builds. Lucid Puppy has special system-level PETs, making Lucid different from other Puppys built from Woof.
A Puppy can be built with packages of any other distro, as well as native PET application packages. Lucid Puppy 5.2 is built with Ubuntu packages, about 60% Ubuntu, 40% our PETs. Applications go on top of Woof and the system-level PET's.
Puppy can be built from major distro's packages, including Debian, Slackware and Arch.
Internal Lucid development used the name 'Luci' and Lupu. So for example a download is called lupu-520.
With Lucid 5.2 we have upgraded, updated and improved all of the main programs. Other enhanced programs in the menu: quickpet, gnome-mplayer, mplayer, sylpheed, mtpaint, gnumeric, abiword, geany and system programs such as e2fsprogs. Numerous improvements come from the latest version of Woof. Sfs programs are now installable with a single click. We have a very tidy, stable and effective first-run wizard. We are still filling the Puppy Package Manager (PPM) with great programs tested and configured for Lucid 5.2. PPM includes quite a few language packs. All the easily accessible Quickpet programs are also available with even more programs in the Puppy package manager.

Puppy Package Manager needs enhancements

* I need a multi select option to install multiple pets with dependencies or without dependencies in a single automatic process so that I don't need to wait in front of PPM and click every pet i need

You can add a check box to the PPM

* I need an option to update only the repos that I need.

Currently when you click Update, all the repos are automatically updated and since there are ubuntu repos, it takes a lot of time as it needs to be converted into puppy readable format.

* Easier way for any normal user to add custom repos

would be great to see partimage and some kind of virtualisation (qemu+kqemu) in puppy...

for virtualisation i better suggest libvirt and virt-manmager. It has a small foodprint and can manage xen and kvm machines...

This is incredible. What's with the comment about "KDE" and such in the article? Does that mean we can run KDE 4.5?

Also, what are the minimum system requirements? Will it install and run well on a system with 256MB RAM?

excelente!... creo que hay que tomarse muy en seria los idiomas. eso es muy importante.

Yo todavía sigo en 4.3.1 que esta muy bien traducida, pero espero de almas caritativas a que apoyen las versiones nuevas con excelentes traducciones.

cuando tenga una versión nueva de Puppy actualizada migrare a esa.

Felicito el esfuerzo.
Saludos
