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.
