I posted this in the Misc section, as "How does the average Joe patch Linux," before I saw this thread. It seems appropriate to this topic.

Maybe Pupget could have a "delete install file" button like dotpups? Then you could archive them, and use the local package option on them later.

FYI, if I remember right, the pupget packages are stored at the ibiblio server, so you can also download them from there.

EDIT: Even better: A save install file button. Then you could choose where to save it so you don't have to search, and you can put it right where you want it.

You might just be onto something there. Debian's apt-get stores copies of downloaded files in a special cache directory which is not automatically emptied, so these files can be retrieved and re-used. This is a feature I've exploited when installing updates in Kanotix on more than one PC.

Likewise, Pupget could have a 'save install file' button (as you suggested) that would add the file to a special pupget-archive directory the contents of which could be used by the 'install local package' option (or re-used manually to update other PCs, via a USB-pen for example).

Perhaps an 'empty pupget-archive' button should also be included to clear the archive directory should storage space be low or the files not be needed again.

I suggest that we add the following to Mozilla's bookmarks:

Puppy Linux Website:
http://www.goosee.com/puppy/

Puppy Help main index:
file:///root/puppy-reference/doc/index.html

Puppy Discussion Forum:
http://www.murga.org/~puppy/

Puppy Linux Wiki:
http://www.goosee.com/puppy/wikka/

Puppy Linux IRC:
http://www.goosee.com/puppy/wikka/PuppyLinuxIRC

Also, the refresh rate seems to default to 60, but I couldn't find something in Puppy explaining how to change it.

I remember now, but there still isn't anything included with the distro about it that I could find. Maybe need to copy the answer and have a Help button with the Video Wizard. Also, a link to the rest of the video modes would be nice (maybe I'll find them myself, dunno).
