Lighthouse Pup 3.x, 2.x Downloads

Getting Started | LHP 3.01 Base ISO | SFS Expansion Packs for LHP 3.01 | LHP 2.15

Getting Started
Start here if you're unfamiliar with ISOs and MD5s: Burning an ISO - Using MD5 Checksums

Please download the .md5.txt (right-click save-as) and verify the ISO before burning. In Lighthouse, simply right-click the .iso and choose MD5SumGUI. It will calculate and compare automatically if both files are in the same folder. (Otherwise in Linux, open a terminal and type md5sum <filename>.)

As of LighthousePup-3.01b7 both xdelta and xdelta3 are built into Lighthouse. Here's how to use it. Let's say you already have LighthousePup-3.01c.iso:

1. Download the xdelta3 update e.g., LighthousePup-3.01c7-3.01g.iso.xdelta3
2. Place it in the same directory as your 3.01c.iso
3. Open a terminal in that directory and type 'xdelta3 -d LighthousePup-3.01c-3.01g.iso.xdelta3'.
4. Verify the md5sum on your new LighthousePup-3.01g.iso

SFS (Squash File System) Software Expansion Packs for Lighthouse
  1. Please download (right-click save-as) the small .md5 text file first and verify the .sfs after downloading both files. In Lighthouse,  right-click on the .sfs | click 'MD5SumGUI'. It will calculate and compare md5s automatically if both files are in the same folder.
  2. Save or copy these into /mnt/home, the folder where your pup_save file is. Usually .sfs files won't be available in LiveCD mode.

    for Official Puppy: skip to step 5

  3. Reboot.
  4. In KDE the new apps may appear in KMenus or under Lost&Found. If not try Kmenu | System | Bootmanager | Click on 'Choose which extra...'.

    In Lighthouse 2.15, click Start | Window Manager | Refresh Menus and wait a few seconds. This is the same as running 'fixmenus' from the command line, just a little easier.

    In IceWM or JWM you may need to run 'fixmenus' in a terminal. If using JWM, Click | Start | Shutdown Puppy | Restart JWM.

    Now the software in the .sfs files should appear in your menu system.

          Additional Steps for Official Puppy only:

  5. Steps 1-2 above, then for Puppy 2.17, make a symlink to it (in Rox-Filer right-click .sfs | link | enter name | hit Symlink ) that ends with '_2nn', e.g. 'pgs_K3b-12.17-02_217.sfs'  Note: If you get an error when creating the symlink, you may be using a non-linux file system (e.g., fat32 or ntfs,) so you'll need to either rename or copy the SFS.
  6. Reboot.
  7. Open a terminal and type 'fixmenus' [Enter]. Then Click | Start | Shutdown Puppy | Restart JWM. Now the software in the .sfs files should appear in your menu system.

LighthousePup 2.15 Hardware Requirements

Similar to official PuppyLinux; however the Lighthouse base ISO includes the core file pup_2xx.sfs which is approximately 162 MB, about twice that of Puppy 2.16.1, and about 50 MB more than Puppy 2.15CE (112 MB.) Although Lighthouse has been tested on a 262MHz K6 system with 160 MB RAM, I recommend a minimum of 800 MHz and 384 MB RAM for good performance. If enough RAM cannot be installed, a linux-swap partition on a local, preferably fast disk drive may be helpful. The great thing about Puppy is you can just swap one bootable LiveCD for another and see which one works best--without the drawn-out hard-disk install of other operating systems.
