Lighthouse64 / Lighthouse Pup
3013.03.31 Lighthouse 64 6.01 Beta is
available and features Linux kernel 3.7.10 with many core packages from
Slackware64 14.0, security, desktop updates, SpaceFM file manager and
much more. PuppyLinux
was released last
30th. I suffered a relapse shortly thereafter, similar to last winter,
but not as severe. I'm doing a little better now and am working toward
new release of LH64 with significant core updates, (kernel, glibc,
Xorg, etc.) as well as updated Xfce and KDE add-on packs.
2012.08.03 Development of Lighthouse64 has
resumed, albeit at a slower pace than before. The web site has been
to another web host and a new mirror site is under construction. A few
updated Pet packages for L64 5.14 via the Update package
manager are planned.
2012.05.18 Lighthouse development is currently
on hold due to ongoing illness. In addition, the webhost plan requires
that non-essential and older/beta ISOs and SFS files be removed from
the web site to minimize disk usage. I apologize for any inconvenience.
Thank you for your support during this difficult time.
