- 2015-05-08 - Overall, I'm not impressed.
Compatible with the binary TXZ packages of Slackware 14, accessible through the Package Manager (note that native Puppy Linux packages are called PETs);

Slacko aka "Spup"
Last updated 2014-03-09. Eww.
I have no clue how to get this onto a USB stick. There aren't any hints anywhere I can see..
sudo dd if=slacko-5.7.0-PAE.iso of=/dev/sdb bs=4M
- dd worked.
- Nice coloured bootup.
- The console test resolution/font is oldschool, but I'm not surprised.
TTY4 is the GUI.
- This is done to save a little bit of memory. It's a good idea.
The quick setup wizard
- Has help tooltips that don't go away!
- After selecting to use the firewall, and ok to exit the wizard it opens a term to run the firewall script. That terminal has an ugly font.
- The bottom-left menu seems to be ornery. Sometimes clicking will flash it up and then dismiss it as though I double clicked it.
As with previous Puppy Linux tests, mouse B4/5 do not work. Sigh.
- Fiddling with mouse setup gave no options for this. I guess I could get technical, but fuck that.
The package manager
- Ugly, cumbersome and somewhat unfriendly.
- Has dependency resolution.
- I'm forced to individually click to download each dependency. Ugh.
I installed Openbox to test it.
- I can't find "lupify" which is supposedly some other window manager helper thingy with openbox.
- I can't save to the USB stick?
- There's no way to cancel the partition selection.
Overall, I'm not impressed.
