Subject description: What to look at to tell if it's Full or Frigal install?
 

Is there some place to look at after boot to confirm whether the installation is Full or Frugal? I had been thinking it was Full, but although it is on a hard drive, it might just have wound up as Frugal without my being aware of it. When installing, I had provided a 65G ext2 partition, and also a linux swap partition.

I am looking for a specific systemy thing which crucially determines what the system thinks.

It is a Slack0 5.5. When it boots, I do not see the list of completed tasks -- it jumps right from the GRUB window into the puppy window. There are no references to RAM, nor to 'remounting root partition'. All of that persuaded me to the notion that this is a full install. Is this enough, or is there something else more definitive?

Thank You.

etc/rc.d/PUPSTATE
A full install will be PUPMODE=2

or:

menu-system-puppy event manager-save session.
will say "currently, PUPMODE=2"

The way I do it is to type 'df' in the terminal
and look at how the loops are noted in the output.

With some experience you will be able to see the
difference in the output.
