You do know that using pfix=ram Puppy will not use the save file when booted?

Yes, thank you, bigpup.

That was my attempt at being cautious; I've now removed the pfix=ram.

May I ask someone - there are two 'console' icons on my desktop: one is for
urxvt, the other for ROXterm. Is it supposed to be this way?

Thanks,

It will update Lucid 5.2.5 or any previous versions of Lucid. Before updating please make a backup copy of your lupusave file. However, a fresh install is always the easiest and that is what is recommended.

I'm an old, timid nooby.

Downloaded the iso onto my Acer Acer Aspire One (running frugal 525).
Left clicked the iso and copied all the files into /mnt/sda6/p528
Copied the existing part of menu.lst that referred to 525 and changed it, to
Code:
title NEW puppy 528
root (hd0,5)
kernel /p528/vmlinuz PDEV1=sda6 PMEDIA=satahd psubdir=p528 pfix=ram
initrd /p528/initrd.gz


Rebooted, chose the new one.

Bingo! A beautiful new Puppy!! Connects to Internet out of the box.

THANK YOU ALL!!

Right now I'm downloading the Lupu-528.iso file, using the link supplied, and it's downloading very slowly.
i.e. about 50 kB/s, predicted to take 45 min to complete.

I'm using an XL Broadband connection, which is normally MUCH faster than this.
Contacted my Virgin ISP tech dept., and they reckon it's the site supplying the file that's slow.

ISO file download now completed...
Then...
Did this to edit the isolinux.cfg so pmedia=cd is changed to pmedia=ataflash.
...
The above was done so I can choose if/when to save or not to save during the session and/or at shutdown/reboot; explanations linked here.

CD-RW now burned using the altered ISO file.
Will probably try later to use this to update my present Lupu-526 pupsave installation. Very Happy

Hope this is a LTS, or not?

Yes, LTS. There are exciting new Puppies coming up in the next months and at some point Lucid will probably move to become a Puppy Derivative--as soon as there is something more or less similar to replace it. But whenever that happens I plan to maintain the derivative. Puppy Derivatives are cool--there are several I could use as my everyday Linux--if there weren't so many good ones.

Wonderfull! I will take this version as my definitive wondows substitute with a full installation. No more frugality!. Hope this is a LTS, or not?

Many thanks to playdayz, Barry and all the people who made possible this pupp& version.
