This page is to assist someone familiar with Puppy and starting out using a Puppyfied Debian, such as DebianDog or PussyLinux.

Package management
DebianDog uses Debian repositories and can use package managers apt-get (commandline) and Synaptic (graphical).

Synaptic the graphical package manager can be found at:
PuppyMenu > System > Synaptic

apt-get has many features, this simple example updates the package list and installs rdate:
apt-get update
apt-get install rdate
