Puppy 5.3.3 Features
Slacko Puppy 5.3.3
Slacko Puppy Linux 5.3.3 is an update release of the recent 5.3.1. It has binary compatibility with Slackware-13.37, which simply means that it is a Puppy built with packages from the Slackware, Salix and Slacky repositories.
The main version has been upgraded with kernel 3.1.10 compiled with Aufs, layered file system support, in the typical Puppy manner. There is also a PAE version to cater for machines with large amounts of RAM. Both iso images have SCSI boot support.
The Seamonkey-2.9.1 suite is the default browser and email suite but Firefox, Chromium, Opera, Netsurf, Iron,Dillo and Links are only a few clicks away.
Minimum system requirements for the main version are an i686 processor, 900MHZ, with 256MB RAM. For the PAE version a slightly newer processor may be needed as most but not all processors support PAE.

Tempestuous' extra wireless firmware for the ath9k_htc driver (which is already present by default in the kernel) is apparently not included though, as my TP-Link TL-WN821Nv3 USB dongle was not detected. See:
Installing that .pet worked, but I had to get online first to be able to access it, so having the firmware included from the get go would be great.
