Software


Software package types are identified by their file extension:

Software Installation

Ensure that the latest available versions of the following pre-requisite packages are installed:
bzip2, curl, dosfstools, e2fsprogs, grep, ntfs3g, tar, wget, xz

Since the installation of any software package involves occupying partition space, the installation will fail if there is not sufficient free space on the target installation partition. Sometimes installing PET and TXZ packages to frugal Puppy installations requires the amount of free space inside the personal save file to be at least 3 times the size of the package.

"To which location has the software package been downloaded to?"
One needs to know to which location a software package has been downloaded to. If a Web browser is used for downloading, then it would need to be manually configured to the user's preference.

Software Package Suffixes

The suffix denotes the environment in which the package was compiled:
This provides some indication of whether or not a certain package is compatible with one's operating system. One will not know of compatibility for sure unless the installation is actually attempted, so always have a back up of the current system before installing any package.
