Place it in the
same directory as your LighthousePup-3.01b7.iso
If your running
3.01b7 (which has xdelta3,) open a terminal in that directory and type
'xdelta3 -d LighthousePup-3.01b7-3.01c.iso.xdelta3'.
(If not and you don't have
xdelta3 already you'll need this small .pet first: http://www.puppylinux.ca/tpp/bugs/xdelta-3t.pet)
Verify the md5sum on your new LighthousePup-3.01c.iso
Change Log v3.01c
would not boot on machines with 256M RAM--"out of memory" error fixed by
editing the init script to account for larger main file.
Presence or absence of linux-swap is
displayed during boot sequence, and a tip to create one with GParted if swap is not present.
Boot screen now
shows whenever e2fsck disk check
Faster boot: As with Puppy 4.1,
by default pup_301c_lighthouse.sfs is not copied into RAM, regardless
of how much RAM there is--unless 'pfix=copy' is specified. To enable copy to RAM in Lighthouse press
(or 'lhp pfix=copy') at the boot menu. Automated test for sufficient
free RAM prior to copying. When copy is enabled, both space needed and
free RAM are displayed during the boot sequence.
Press 'h' <Enter> at boot menu
to boot from primary hard
disk, starting alternate O.S., e.g. Win XP or other Linux. Of course
you can also do this by removing the Lighthouse CD from the drive.
KDE updated to v3.5.10. Flash plugin
updated to v10.0r12. Real player 11 and plugins updated
Fixed odd checkbox behavior of
default Gtk theme Panther-LHP
with a linux-swap partition: 128M, w/o swap: 192M, with swap & copy
to RAM to free up CD drive: 384M, w/o swap & copy to RAM: 448M.
Note1: you can
also free up the CD drive with a frugal install,
or with frugal and a GRUB bootloader configuration.
These are approximate; more is helpful, especially when running several
apps at once.

SFS integrated into the base system as well as IceWM, GIMP 2.4.3,
FireFox184.108.40.206, JAVA, Thunderbird, XINE, XMMS and K3b 1.03 with nearly

DRI is enabled by default for ATI display adapters along with
translucency and shadow effects upon login to the KDE desktop. KDE

This is the fastest KDE desktop I've ever used; quick loading and
responsive. Kernel and Init Scripts are identical to Puppy 3.01, except
for modified xorgwizard for ATI AGP cards: Detects Radeon AGP 8x;
dialog offers to set AGPMode to "4" required for DRI to work on my box.
An otherwise identical LighthousePup_3.01a4_oo2.2.iso
includes OpenOffice2.2.0.sfs as a separate SFS file within the ISO for
the convenience of one download, without performance hit of building
the additional 98M into the core.
