HD Install :: Updating DSL Frugal Install


Is there a way to update my frugal install (The way Ubuntu update periodically sends updates to their users)?  Or maybe just a way to do it through the command line -- for example through apt


You'll have to make sure your KNOPPIX file is not mounted.  Either boot with the "toram" option or boot from a live CD or other distro.

Mount the partition that contains your KNOPPIX file

Mount the new ISO file. Example:
Code Sample
sudo mount -o loop dsl-4.4.10.iso  /mnt/test

Copy the new KNOPPIX file and minirt24.gz (as root) from the ISO mount point, overwriting the old ones.
Copy linux24 if the kernel has been upgraded (not usually needed).


Thanks!  That'll do.
