Download: xpud-0.8.zip (31MB)
We're glad to release a development version of xPUD. In fact this is a "lite" edition compare to the "standard" LiveUSB structure, but it contains many interesting features and reaches new milestone so we decided to make it 0.8. :-)

Including mplayer, firefox and plate UI, the whole system is packed into a single image without apt/dpkg. By this approach, both system size and boot time can be dramatically reduced.
- XEmbed and Screen resolution
Xvesa now support 1024x600 screen resolution, it looks good on EeePC. As you may see in the screenshot, plate UI now embedded application directly inside the web, it results in better integration and desktop usability.
- USB 2.0 and Filesystem
Because we eliminated most of the kernel modules, the USB support and some common filesystem including fat/vfat, ext2/ext3 and ntfs are built-in. So it's handy to use removable device.
This is the complete modules set that can be put on USB flash drive and use after booting. Just use udev to load modules: tar zxf xpud-0.8-mod.tgz -C /lib/modules; depmod -a; udevd --daemon ; udevadm trigger
You can customize xPUD with your own kernel by using this root filesystem.
If you would like to build standard version of xPUD and make further customization, check out this build script with subversion.
Use this iso image instead if your machine doesn't support boot from USB.
If you would like to test or demo xPUD on Windows, here's a portable QEMU package.
