I've updated the Puppy manual to release 3.01 (see http://www.puppy-linux.info/ ). The manual is available in English and German now and will be available in Spanish, Italian, French and Japanese language soon. Very much thanks to Dot, Caka, GW, Slapshot, Billwho YoN and nyu for translation.

Sub_title: Where is the new manual?
 

Great news that there's a manual available for Puppy 3.01!

However, it's not too obvious from the post that you have to go up to the top of the page and click on the 'Manual' link to get it. Why not have a URL that points to the available manuals directly? Thanks!

Because I would like that users read
- the introduction (especially the sentence: I do not take any responsibility for the contents and quality of the information)
- the name of the translators, because they had a lot of effort
- and that there are some more informations (videos, links, shell commands) that could be useful

Thanks for the recognition Oli but I think it might be a bit early, I haven't seen this version yet much less done any proof reading.Smile
Am saving it to my hard drive tonight.

Sub_title: checking md5sum in linux
 

Hi Oli,
Really appreciate you bringing the manual up to date. Very Happy

I noticed one little refinement you might like to make.

In section "2. How to get Puppy"
you say:
Quote:
Open a shell and change into the directory, in which you stored the two files. Enter the following command:

* md5sum puppy-3.01-seamonkey.iso

As a result you get the checksum. Open the file puppy-3.01-seamonkey.iso.md5.txt with a text program (e.g. abiword). The two checksums should be identical.


Whereas in "Within Windows"
...you say ...
Quote:
* md5sum -c puppy-3.01-seamonkey.iso.md5.txt

You should get an "OK".

-----------
This makes the procedure seem more cumbersome and error prone in Linux than in Windows. In fact the same command can be used
in Linux.

Cheers,
Richard.
