What's the best way to upgrade from old DSL to 4.4.10-initrd.iso?


Don't know DSL well to try this on my own. Want to put it in the same stick is now residing (a 64 MB flash drive). I also want to know if I'm booting now from a VAIO with a grub menu with some entries that contain a few puppies, is it possible to include there (menu.lst) an entry for booting up dsl from the same stick?

Thanks for any help!

Not sure what you mean Benny.

I'm wondering if the grub4dos in one of your Puppy installs will find DSL /boot/grub/menu.lst and include it in the grub4dos menu list. The DSL pendrive will need to be plugged in and mounted using pmount in puppy to try this out as far as I can tell.

I've never tried this so I don't know if this will work though.

Thanks for responding, rokytmji!

What I meant was first to understand how to upgrade DSL while I'm running it. I spent quite a while the other day reading within their wiki but didn't find an answer to this issue...

The 2nd issue is how to boot DSL from GRUB (which I've been using for a long time now). What I've now is a list of puppies & I can choose any one of them at start up & it works fine.

Something extra that have occurred to me just mow: what about booting up from 'netboot.me' from the same GRUB menu? Any ideas?
