31  Damn Small Linux / User Feedback / Re: Can't find a way to save a downloaded file to a floppy disk? on: July 30, 2012, 10:11:20 PM
I've DSL4.4.10.iso, but in the pendrive I've DSL4.2.5. What's the difference between the two? Is it an update for fixing some bugs? Stability?

How hard it would be to use that newer iso file for updating the older one if at all possible, if I'm using just Puppy Linux 528.005? My mental scheme is as follows:

1- mount the pendrive;
2- mount the sda5 hdd partition where that iso exists;
3- mount the DSL4.4.10.iso file;
4- copy some files from the new iso to the appropriate location in the pendrive.

Could this procedure be effective?

Thanks for any info on this!

Those are good news for DSL. I think I'll wait then until a new version/release comes out.

Still, I've the curiosity to know, if it's possible, to uninstall BonEcho & Dillo & then install something else more updated within DSL itself.

Thank you for having the forum alive!

I'm using a nx9010 HPCompaq laptop which lacks a hdd. Booted from a flash pendrive DSL2.4.31.

Spent about 2 hrs trying to do it but finally I learned something: I even forgot how I managed to format the disk in the first place...

Any tips for a newbie?

I also would like to know 2 other things:
1) how to update BonEcho to enable it to deal with web pages that need jre plugin?;
2) how to update DSL itself (have a current iso file at hand already)?

The referenced pendrive is just 64MB in size & it's almost completely full so need to do things very carefully!
