Wobbly NOP is a modified version of the small, light and fast LiveCD operating system Puppy Linux 3.01. Wobbly NOP includes the Compiz-Fusion compositing 3D window manager, for those "wobbly" effects. :-D All in just 130mb!

It's based on Puppy NOP (which uses the Xfce desktop environment (4.4.1) and the Opera web browser/internet suite. NOP itself is release-quality, but Wobbly NOP is still being worked on. This is a test release release for people willing to experiment and give feedback.

This is basically what has been added:
wow's october compiz test dotpet
The CCSM (settings manager) and Python.
Xorg7.2 DRI modules
Xorg7.2 OpenGL
Some bugfixes for ATI setups and Compiz itself.
Proprietary nVidia drivers (x3) (cos OSS drivers don't do AIGLX)
My own Compiz-Fusion wizard script (/usr/sbin/cfwizard)

The cfwizard script is run at the end of xorgwizard and sets up the appropriate configuration (xorg.conf, modules, drivers, etc). It currently relies on simple text-pattern matching, I'm really not sure how many cards this method will successfully detect. Perhaps there's a better way?

At the moment Compiz is started from the beginning of .xinitrc This is a compromise as on my machine it causes the taskbar to be hidden until the first mouse click. When I started Compiz from a later script (startxfce maybe) there would be an ugly moment of no window decorations.

Currently wNOP has been tested as working on these graphics cards:

Stable:

ATI Radeon 9550
ATI Mobility Radeon 9000
ATI Radeon Mobility 7500
nVidia GeForce 5200
Nvidia Geforce MX 440
Nvidia 6150se
Probably all nVidias

Possibly unstable:

geforce 2 mx 400
nvidia GeForce 6200
