Hi,
I am new to linux and running Puppy 5.3.3 (full installation) on a mini-pc (Via 1.2 Ghz - 512 Mo RAM - 80 Gb HD). I'd like to update to 5.4 without loosing my updates (ex. DEVx extension, python packages and other stuff).

Is there an easy way to do it ?

Thx
Claude

Got it:
There will be issues with upgrading from 5.3x (based on 13.37). Slackware, as have debian, have moved to the module tool known as "kmod". This is because module-init-tools has not been developed in 2 years. This will cause probelems with upgrading full installs. I recommend (if you try it) removing all module init tools programs (/sbin/depmod, /sbin/modinfo, /sbin/modprobe, /sbin/lsmod there is a full list in ~/.packages/builtin-files/module-init-tools, 13.37 based only) and then try to update. With frugals it might work with no manual intervention. It is highly reccommended to start with a clean install
