I want to try this so bad, but I can't connect to site while I'm at work. Maybe I'll try again from home and see.

Just saying... I can't vouch for its stability/legitimacy etc. I just found it while being carried along on an unpredictable current of the great body of thoughts that is the interwebs...

I've been trying to access the site but it never responds.

I get this:
"Could Not Connect
Description: Could not connect to the requested server host"

Puppy is one of my favourite distros. I always carry a USB key around just to be safe if something happens to my regular installation.

;'( I am very sad to hear this news. Did anyone save an ISO image from when it was available?
I confess I never actually tried it.

I was about to install LibrePup a couple of weeks ago (hard-drive failed, I needed a live USB for a few weeks until a new one arrived) but I found the site was down.
It had such a short life... ;c

Do not worry! Use the mirror for Librepup as stated above.

The resource you are looking for might have been removed, had its name changed, or is temporarily unavailable.

The site is down.. Your web mirror is broken, I guess the librepup is horrendously ugly to be starred.

Your librepup is suffering from lame decease, not even your "LIBREpUp" would not even TRY eat those digital meals you ARE SERVING!!!!

Luckily I managed to download the ISO a few days ago. Since the official site and mirrors seem to be down AND I couldn't find any torrent of it (the official site wasn't hosting any as well), I created my own. It's attached to this message.
The ISO's SHA-256 sum should be
77cb41e24a299b4ef654cd80978736ba4d933f4d911e0e3b2c667c9fedc874c6

^ Thanks!
On another note, who actually made Librepup? They used Trisquel packages so obviously knew about Trisquel. So will they come to this forum to confirm/deny Librepup's demise?

Iguleder (Dima Krasner) -- a Russian living in Israel from what I gather. There's an archive here.

https://archive.org/details/librepup-6.0.2.0

https://archive.org/download/librepup-6.0.2.0/librepup-6.0.2.2.iso

2c79293db63754bd9c24c014afc7b371 librepup-6.0.2.2.iso (md5sum) 162.5 MB

The ISO and the checksum seem to match those I downloaded from the mirror when it was still up. The archive works (just tested), boots up in a VM and seems legit.

Another download link:

Posting this from Librepup right now, everything seems to work just fine :)

I installed it on an eeepc I had laying around and gave it to my nephew (He's 5). He really likes it and it's easy for him to navigate as well!
