For Mikeslr, who needs to remasterized its lovely Teenpup, to get wired.
Newbies get successful results, because they apply the process, simply, without asking questions ! They don't presume any problem.
Few years ago, i missed to be condemned to the flames of the pyre because i changed the kernel of Wolx2014 to get wireless working.

Hi All,

The original objective was to use a new kernel with Slacko 5.7. http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=962831#962831. But 5.7 wasn't published with a separate zdrv. Newer kernel packages contain vmlinuz --the kernel-- and a modules-sfs containing the drivers compiled to work with that kernel which, before use is renamed to zdrv_WHICHEVER PUPPY+VERSION you intend to use. But separating out Slacko 5.7's 'zdrv' so that it could be replaced appeared to entail a lot of work for questionable results.

Edit in response to nic007's post below: He is, of course, correct. If you read the above thread, I was thinking Woofy as, in addition to remaster, changing kernels was an objective. There were reports on the Woofy thread of problems with Slacko. In looking for a solution to those problem, I overlooked the obvious: use Slacko 5.7's builtin remaster to separate zdrv. Embarassed

Fortunately, rg66 had already and successfully done that hard work in creating a version of xslacko based on either slacko 5.6 or 5.7. So, it occurred to me to use xslacko instead. http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=962784#962784 I report regarding the functional Franken-xslacko on page following the cited post.

Puppys builtin remasterscript can create a seperate zdrv if you choose to do so (handy if your puppy didn't come with a zdrv). Whether that created zdrv can be swapped with another I have not tested.

Zdrv cannot be changed with another if it contains kernel modules. It has to be the same kernel as shown in distrospecs. you must change distrospecs to fit kernel. Distrospecs is in initrd, usually
