How to install .tar files in Puppy?
Please can you tell me how to install .tar files in puppy?
I am a newbie (brand new!) to puppy (indeed to Linux in general) and despite searching all the forums, etc', I cannot find any info' on how to do this (simple?) procedure.
Having just installed Puppy 4.1.1 on an old desktop machine - 400Mhz, 256k - it seems to be working fine - but...
I tried to install xf-prot from the Utility menu but got the error message: cannot detect f-prot's version - Aborting. Having checked the forums, it seems this is pretty common and after trying a number of fixes given - without success - I downloaded and installed the clamav package. Again, despite trying many of the fixes, I could not get it to run.
As the general opinion given in the forums is to use Avast with puppy 4.1.1, I have downloaded the "avast4workstation-1.08.tar" file (using a win xp machine) and unzipped it into flash drive folder.
How do I now install it into puppy? - and how do I un-install it if it doesnt work? I have seen in the posts that installing it is easy but no details are given.
