LHPup.org is down, but Lighthouse 64 Puppy Linux 6.02 Beta 2 is still available in Archive.org

The Lighthouse 64 Puppy Linux website seems to be down. I first noticed this around perhaps June 22nd:

LHPup.org

I was hoping the website would soon return, but it hasn't so far. And now, that page redirects to a domain name seller's website.


I'm not sure how long LHPup.org has been down, but, here's the most recent version of that page in Archive.org:

From April 18, 2018 - Archive.org


I don't know what happened, and the official forum thread about Lighthouse 64 Puppy Linux 6.02 Beta 2 hasn't been posted to since 2015:

Lighthouse 64 602 Beta2 with GIMP-2.8.4 (6-29-2013)
From Puppy Linux Discussion Forum


I hope the person who owned LHPup.org is OK. Huge thanks to him or her for creating the Lighthouse 64 variant of Puppy Linux - it's still the operating system I use most frequently.




The Lighthouse 64 Puppy Linux 6.02 Beta 2 ISO and DevX SFS file of development tools are both available at Archive.org:

The file's SHA-512 checksum:

The file's MD5 checksum exists in Archive.org. (Close the Archive.org toolbar at the top of the page to see it):

I still haven't finished renovating my (Apollia's) Puppy Linux Setup Kit (APSK).

But, when it is finished, it will be possible to use it to set up Lighthouse 64 Puppy Linux 6.02 Beta 2.


I have no plans to even trying to switch to a newer Puppy Linux (or any other GNU/Linux) until I make more progress with APSK, which I will probably gradually release here:

https://apollia.org/gitlist


The renovated APSK is still pretty incomplete, and after being preoccupied with other things for about a month (mainly because I mostly quit GitHub and had to figure out how to get by without it), I feel a bit lost and disoriented now that I'm trying to return to working on APSK.

But, fortunately, I can use my modified version of VUE: Visual Understanding Environment to create some documentation, maybe or maybe not similar to this, which will probably help me get (and share) a better idea of what the heck I was doing and what I should do next.


Some of the best currently-existing documentation of important new features in the renovated version of APSK is in this repo:
