What is the difference in two types of packages used in puppy?

and why somebody prefer pups and others only pets?

also i tried to make a pet with dir2pet from a slack tgz
it installs and works but i can not uninstall it with petget( although itś registered there)

Hello magerlab,
I like dotpups because they don't complain about there not being enough room (RAM while running live) to unpack themselves like pets do during the install process on PC's with 128-256mb's of RAM.
I've read the Barry K also thought he might have made the RAM requirements larger then they need be. Hopefully when he takes another look at his pet format, this will be fixed.

I like making pets, They are easy and I never get any errors, Well could because my pc's are new and I built them with extra-size everything. Overkill for puppy but hey why not, And when it comes to pup packages I never tried yet. I guess to each their own Smile

The .pet format is more standardized, which is a big help when I want to take one apart and see what it's installing. It was annoying with dotpup, because every package was unique. Most of the later ones were also created with MU's wizard too. I'm sure the thing was awesome for the people creating dotpups, but it's output wasn't very pretty.

One of the big things I like about .pet is that it's basically just a compressed version of an Unleashed package. Meaning when I create a custom Puppy with Unleashed, I can easily convert the individual packages into .pet. The reverse is also true: I can take .pet packages other people made and just decompress them and they're already in a format that Unleashed can deal with. The only catch with that is that I still need to look through the thing to make sure it doesn't have anything that wouldn't quite work with Unleashed inside, like a pinstall script that assumes you're installing it in a running Puppy.
