How to upgrade puppy 2.02 to 2.11 ???


I have a nice puppy installed on my flash drive and would like to upgrade to the newest version. How can I do that, without re-installation of all things? Can I switch back if it does not work (if I backup the flash drive first)?


bye

Well, Puppy will fit on a 128MB USB key, and a new 256MB key is about $15 on the high street, so why not just get a new one and not risk the working one? You can leapfrog them after that.

If you are prepared to risk your nicely working installed system on the key, then take an exact image of the USB key using the "dd" command before wiping what's on it.
