Semme,

Copy all. I will do the upgrade over my original slacko-save files. I hate to be dense but what exactly constitutes the "opening splash screen"? - just so I don't miss it during the boot.

This first screen you see after BIOS. Did PPM work in 5.4?

No? Can you dwnld this pkg with your browser?

Yes? Copy'n paste (left'n right buttons in unison) this line into your console:
Code:
wget http://slackware.cs.utah.edu/pub/slackware/slackware-13.37/slackware/ap/vbetool-1.1-i486-1.txz

.. then open *file* on your desktop. Is vbetool-1.1-i486-1.txz there?

And as for an upgrade, you can probably do this from a live boot..

OK, I got the pupfix=ram command entered on the splash page. I got 5.4 running and PPM still doesn't work. Same as before. I was able to download the vbe tool from the browser, Firefox now, and I saved it to ~root. I entered the script you included to the console and the vbetool is unpacked, in ~root. Do I need to move it to the desktop before I open it? As far as eliminating the extra old sfs file in my flash drive is that something I should do before proceeding?

No, that pkg isn't for you.. not to install anyways. It was merely a dwnld check.

If you wouldn't mind deleting that pkg in /root and re-running my codeline.

We're checking to see that wget isn't somehow blocked.

As for your flash drive.. you went with *which* installer- Boot Flash or Universal?

Ok the vbe package is removed. Which code do you want run again? wget http://slackware.cs.utah.edu/pub/slackware/slackware-13.37/slackware/ap/vbetool-1.1-i486-1.txz? I don't remember Boot Flash or Universal being an option

Well, how'd you do it when you installed to Flash? And who's your service provider? PM it if you like..

Oh and, your routers`make'n model should help too. I really don't think Pup's the problem here..

I ran your posted codeline again. I just installed v5.4 like before and saved sessions to the flash drive. I didn't see a reference to boot flash or universal. There was nothing on the v5.3 saved sessions except the printer install and that only took 3 minutes to reestablish. Everything seems to work but PPM, just like before. The machine I'm using now won't boot from a usb.

TWN is my ISP. They aren't too receptive to suggestions for upgrades, ie IPv6. It is through a wired router and dish pointed at an antenna on a nearby mountain. I run up to three other machines on this router, depending on what I'm doing.

I have 3 uses for live CD puppy linux is: 1)Reducing traces on rented computers while I travel the 3rd world. The only thing dumber than banking on a "cafe" machine is carrying a laptop thru the barrio. The other two are 2)running my old machine as a backup at home and 3)accessing data on machines with corrupted OS.

I can see now I need to uninstall flash 11 that seems to be on v5.4 and put a less demanding version for running on this old HPPAV and I need a legacy jre for several government websites I need. The lite operating system is great but if the cpu is overwhelmed by latest/greatest add-ons it defeats the purpose. Also, I don't always get to chose the machine or ISP on the road, either.

I hope that gives a bit more perspective on my situation now and my objectives.

There is a bug in PPM with some repos NOT mirroring Puppy any more Sad . When you click to install a pet a list of radio buttons pops up. Choose a repo other than the default. This bug will be fixed soon.

Known working:
    Iblblio
    Nluug
    Aarnet
    UOC

I don't know.. Give it a whirl- different mirrors with a small pkg like vbetool. If one goes- we'll know.

I'm having trouble understanding how to add the other mirrors. I thought I got one in but it still didn't show up when I restarted ppm. The add repo help page is unclear.
