How would one install to an older, pre-dotPET version of Puppy?

like Bruce B, i usually just download and unzip dotpup and dotpet packages, look inside, and copy the files to where i want them to be

to unzip a dotpet file, type something like:

tar xzvf littlepolish07_linux_i686.pet

Hmm, I didn't realize that dotpets were just tar.gz files. I tried using tar -x with nothing happening. I then tried changing the file name from *.pet to *.tar.gz. Again, no go. Thoughts?

changing the file extension to .tar.gz should work, unless the file is corrupted (actually, a .pet file has an md5sum tacked on the end of the file, which tar might complain about, but it should not cause any problems)

using the z tar option should work whether you rename the file or not:

tar xzf littlepolish07_linux_i686.pet

packages, whether rpm or deb or pup or pet, are not much different from an ordinary zip or tar.gz file ... a package is mostly an archive of files conveniently compressed in one file

i usually make a new dir, like /tmp/1/ in which to uncompress the files

"thoughts?" ... you could test the file to see if it is ok:

# gunzip -t littlepolish07_linux_i686.pet

gunzip: littlepolish07_linux_i686.pet: decompression OK, trailing garbage ignored

aj,

like g2 & bruceb, whenever i want to try a .pet with pup1.08, i just rename to .tgz. i've never encountered one that wouldn't open yet, though of course, you often need to resolve library issues.
