Nice Chinese Support Package for Puppy Linux

This website (Home of Chinese Puppy Linux Developer) has a nice Chinese support package for Puppy Linux. Maybe it is more meant for the users in mainland China since it makes all the menu items in Chinese.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Veket and Puppy Linux Installed

Recently I was reading some positive review of veket Linux in some Chinese forums. veket Linux is mainly distributed P2P network and supported by the forum. It is based on Puppy Linux. Today I tried veket 2.39 and 3.11. veket 2.39 is more stable and included the development tools. V3.11 seems to be more similar to Puppy Linux 4.3.1 which I also installed.

Puppy Linux seems to be a good distribution for Live CD and Live USB and I tried both option before installing them to the hard disk. I use the frugal installation option (for both veket and Puppy) so the installation option is really simple. Adding them to grub (under Ubuntu 9.10) is also very easy.

veket has good Chinese support. I copied the fonts into Puppy so that I can browse Chinese website from Puppy.

For my Acer desktop PC, both veket 2.39 and Puppy 4.3.1 run fine and quite fast.
