How to install Puppy 'Slacko' 5.7.0 to a USB flash drive.


Evening, all.


It was suggested that this would be appropriate to post in the Tutorials section.....so, here it is.




The install has been performed from an existing HD 'frugal' install, but it illustrates the important points. I would have liked to show this being performed from a brand-new LiveCD.....but without having already installed Simple Screen Recorder, there wouldn't be any way to record it... (think about it.)


There is only one important difference in installing from the LiveCD; and that is that Puppy will ask you, at some point during the proceedings, where you wish to copy the installation files from. A window will come up, showing the optical drive (where your LiveCD will be), and asking if this is the location you wish to use.


Apart from that, everything else is the same. While you're at it, just study that list of devices you can install Puppy to; Puppy really will install to almost anything.


(And for those of you who might be interested, the 'PuppyMaster', Barry Kauler himself, has now released an ARM-based version of 'Quirky'.....so you can install a Puppy to your smartphone or your Raspberry Pi, if you so wish..!)




So, here we go...





Hope that's of some little help to some of you!



Mike.  :wink:
