For introduction and instructions to download Woof, go here:

So, if you have previously downloaded Woof, all you have to do this time is run this in the Woof project directory to update to the latest Woof files:

# bones download

Bones also has a GUI, just type "bones<RETURN>".

Note, if you want to use the 'zzz' package, make an entry in the end of PKGS_SPECS_TABLE variable in file DISTRO_PKGS_SPECS-*:

>choose pkgs tab> as the add/remove tabs at bottom don't work, I need to know the files to edit. The pet one is easy to find to ammend as it's listed at the bottom of the page, however I have no idea what the second one is likely to be called or where it is located. Can you help please? I'm playing with a lucid puppy build to use as a learning curve as to meet my specs i'm planning to eventually use playdayz 5.2 as my base to work with. thanks scsijon
