PuppEX Focal64 (Puppy Linux) with kernel 5.9.9 (latest) compatible with Ubuntu 20.04 LTS :: Build 201121

NEWS 201126 ABOUT PuppEX Build 201121 and Nvidia
Today I’ve discovered that Nvidia’s Proprietary Graphics Driver can be installed in PuppEX Build 201121 after all! Not version 450.80.02, but version 455.45.01. Watch this screenshot. Read this Article about the Open-Source NVIDIA/Nouveau vs NVIDIA Proprietary Driver.  Read about how to install the driver...

ABOUT PuppEX Focal64 Build 201121
A new PuppEX Focal64 version with kernel 5.9.9 (latest) is ready today. Unfortunately it does not have Nvidia’s Proprietary Graphics driver 450.80.02 installed (as Build 201119 has). I could not find a patch for kernel 5.9. The good news is that this new version has the kernel sources for kernel 5.9.9. This means that VirtualBox Guest Additions can be installed by you. Which also means that you can run PuppEX in full screen in VirtualBox (among other things). Watch this screenshot. When running PuppEX Build 201121 in VirtualBox you shall first save your session. After a reboot you can install the Additions. When doing so you will get an error message saying failed to remove installed version filelist not found. Fix it by running the command rm /usr/sbin/vbox-greeter /usr/sbin/vbox-uninstall-guest-additions. Watch screenshot 1 and screenshot 2.

PuppEX Focal64 (Puppy Linux) compatible with Ubuntu 20.04 LTS :: Build 201119

ABOUT PuppEX Focal Build 201119
My newest Puppy derivative is built from Puppy Linux 9.5 FossaPup64. I have added Firefox (for Netflix), SpotifyPCManFM, LXterminal and many development tools. I have also compiled a new kernel – 5.7.19-exton. Furthermore I have installed Nvidia’s Proprietary Graphics driver 450.80.02. The Nvidia driver will be used if your computer/card is “good/modern” enough. If not automatically just open up a terminal and run the command nvidia-xconfig. Then restart X.

PuppEX Focal64 is compatible with Ubuntu 20.04 (Focal Fossa) LTS, which means that Ubuntu packages for Ubuntu 20.04 can be installed and used in PuppEX. The PuppEX Focal64 ISO is of 1020 MB.

Performance
Puppy Fossapup64 original is of only 409 MB. PuppEX Focal64 is despite this still running as fast as the original, which means it runs very, very fast compared to most other Linux systems. (Puppy/PuppEX runs from RAM).
