    EasyOS installs to a boot partition. I don't think it will boot from a directory which is normal for puppy. Normally frugal install just means that the directory that contains the puppy also...
  16. Re: Enjoying Puppy Linux after many years on frugal install of Fossapup64 9.5

    I know Puppy runs in RAM, which means it has come of age, since today RAM is cheap and plentiful and I have RAM that has never been used. Regarding frugal, I prefer to use a save file that allows me...

    I get the point of this thread but an additional consideration is that a linux reboot doesn't take very long either. It doesn't hurt to reboot after one of those fast updates due to a phenomena...
