i dld the latest release

i backed up my saved file (from r3) and booted with the new r6....

nothing changed... non of the added or changed features have kicked in despite multilple boots

i tried on an old lap top with no puppy.. the live CD has all the changes

am i doing something incorrectly?

i realise a fresh frugal install would solve it, but id like to keep the settings i have now for various applications

thanks

NOP is only a pupplet and so has the same release number as the parent Puppy (301). The various R's will therefore not trigger the puppy upgrade. The only way to do this is to replace the pup_301.sfs file in your frugal install. Also if going from R3 to R6 it is best to also replace the initrd.gz file.

This may not work or only partially work and may need a couple of reboots to stabilise the updated system even if it does.
