      Is anyone else using EMC pup 3.01?

      Warren,

      I think you are trying too hard with your EMCpup installation.  The easiest way to upgrade an installation of an executable and all of its required libraries is to install from the "pet" file.  That is why I created the pet files.  This is the reference on the www.w1hkj.com site:

      Pet Distribution for the EMCpup.3.01 release series

      The following Pet files can be loaded onto an existing Puppy 3.01 or used to upgrade a previously downloaded EMCpup-3.01.07.x release.  This is much faster if you already have a working Live CD for Puppy 3.01.  Just click on the file from the Puppy default browser and open using the Pet installer.  The Pet Menu system will be updated but you will need to restart your JWM window manager to see the changes.  You can then save your new installation or burn a new distribution CD.
      For a fully functioning EMC installation you will also need to download the latest version of Sylpheed using the Pet Installer.

      If you need to learn more about the pet installation process you can visit the following site:
