Upgrade Puppy 6.3.0 to 6.3.2


What is the simplest way to upgrade from 6.3.0 to 6.3.2 when I don't have a DVD drive? Is there a network upgrade method?

Thanks in advance.

You can install to a flash drive using unetbootin or similar.

Makeusb is good too.

Yes I did that and booted it. But I saw no option to update 6.3.0 which was installed on my hard drive. So I proceeded with a fresh install hoping that it would give me the option of not deleting all the added software I had installed and the config files in the home directory. No such luck. I'm still working on a number of re-installations.

You need to download the Slacko 6.3.2 iso.

Then you can install to a flash drive.

I don't know whether it still works that way, but I've always just replaced the core files in the past and the first boot sorts it all out. This has only been for minor version changes.
