It took me considerably longer than 3 minutes in the US on broadband. 4 hours sounds like some of the horror stories I've heard from the backwaters of the Phillipines.
I really wish that the US would get its Internet act together. Come to think of it, I really wish the world would come to understand what the Internet means, what its implications are. Wouldn't that be lovely?

Hope it is okay to ask. What is it about full install
that make you recommend it for your version?

Edit
Thanks for the answer. Ooh then I use the older kernel then. But it works okay

Of course it's ok to ask (anything).

Well, if you want/need to use "my" kernel 3.1.5-puppex you'll have to install PuppEX to hard drive. If you don't want that you can use PuppEX as any other Puppy Linux derivative.

Hi exton

JFYI - very nice puppy - just booted on my new laptop.

Added CPUtemp and thunar file manager pets and all seems to be
running extremely well.

Like the attention to small detail (icons and tick boxes etc).

Did a manual frugal install to a 8GB sd-card (vfat)
and to a 30GB usb-hdd (ext4), booting both with grub4dos.

Have not been brave enough to attempt shrinking the ntfs
win7 partition yet, to enable a full install to the laptop hdd.

Could use grub4dos to boot a frugal install on the ntfs partition,
but for the moment no pressing need to do so.

Thank you for sharing your work with us - much appreciated.

Very best regards and warm seasonal greetings to you and
your family.

Downloading puppEX 2012 from the Swedish link. Will it "update" my present puppy slacko 5 3 1 ? It is mainly the VLC player I want but cannot yet find a pet for.

Try it. Make a backup of your save-file first.

Did the trying already ..... forgot to backup, now repairing back to slacko.

Remark: wrong word not corrected (in live CD helping USB-stick for bios not allowing boot from USB)
F2,
"puppy" first word in all command strings still adviced but should be altered into "puppex", e.g, the given examples like "puppy pfix=ram" must read (as I guessed & tried successfully after error mentions) puppex pfix=ram .... etc..
Please take care of that tiny repair.

Upgrade was not offered by CD so (possibly little professional which indeed I aint) I just replaced SFS and a few files with equal names from CD to USB stick and changed name of savefile. Not bad, at first sight, but I saw no way to get my printer HP Deskjet 3650 working, then after downloading hplip & hpijs, CUPS setup was dead and did not get re-animated by restart or purge.

At trying to restore slacko (renamed savefile) I lost all icons, "purge" no use.

Well, it was an interesting experiment but safer for me to get back to slacko which so far I found the nicest of the several puppies I already had.

Note well, I am not a technician, just a not totally unexperienced user but never open terminal or command line since cannot oversee the effect of possible errors when I copy codes in magic language I don' t master.

Slacko working again. Is there a way to open a savefile and add its contents to another savefile .... (I might get some of puppex's extras working in slacko)
Question

I don't think so.

PuppEX is nothing more than Slacko 5.3.1 with some "extras" so...

Thanks. O.k, I'll wipe the residual big "remaining" extra savefile that already contains the (unholy) mixture I hoped to cure by injecting the much smaller contents of the new slacko 531 savefile. Glad I have become kind of quick at (re)installing. Will find another VLC pet some day.
