hi divisionmd,

precise puppy has access to the ubuntu repos through it's package manager PPM. it's repos are changing quite frequently, so it's a good idea to update the PPM quite frequently. you do that buy pressing the configure button in the PPM and choosing update.

there's also an Nvidia driver for precise puppy, also in the ppm. you'll find it in the 'setup' section, in the puppy precise repo.
