Precise Puppy 5.6

It's out! Our latest and greatest Puppy

A brief introduction:

Relative to Precise Puppy 5.5, this latest pup brings some exciting new features, including a new Xorg Video Wizard (with forced-reboot recovery mechanism), new non-PAE 3.2.44 kernel with lots of analog modem drivers (making this an excellent pup for those still on dialup Internet), many more applications internationalized, many applications upgraded, lots of bug fixes, and so on! Plus, a huge number of fixes and improvements at the infrastructure/system level. In all, a great new edition of the Precise series.

Re update repos
I am running 5.6, locale en_US-UTF8, I just tried it, works for me.

Have you installed any packages? Langpack?

Re Re Update Repos
I've have installed some packages, so i booted into RAM mode and same result.

In pemasu's Dpup Wheezy, it worked but took a while to get a connection.

I'm thinking woof might be a culprit.

have a look where they are trying to download from, we know ibiblio has bandwidth (connection throughput) problems, a few of the others are starting to get the same.
