Update P96 Drivers without re-install the whole setup?

Hi there,

I don't found this question via the search option so I started this new topic:

My Installation is AmiKiT XE 11.4 with a V2+, Kickstart 3.1 and OS 3.9 all installed in a A2000 - everything's running stable so far

I want to update my P96 Drivers to the newer comercial version 3.12.

The Installation Guide from the driver package suggests to prepare and delete some file that are not there in the current stable working AmiKIT installation (Picasso in DEVS/Monitors and village.library EXAMPLE or LIBS).

I am a bit worried to update the drivers, because I don't want to crash the whole system by deleting or installing stuff that isn't necessary... Is there any way to copy or remove/rename files from the picasso package manually? Which files are the ones I need? I don't want to do a fresh new CF-Setup with the new drivers, of course.

Hi Alex and welcome!

Installing new (commercial) or old (Aminet) version of Picasso96 is very easy in AmiKit. Simply place the Picasso96.lha archive (don't unpack it) in the AmiKit:Expansion/InstallFiles drawer, and reboot. AmiKit will install it automatically. If you encounter any problems with the new drivers, simply place the old (Aminet) archive to the same folder and on next reboot you're back on the old drivers.

But I recommend to backup your SD card anyway. I use the following program on Windows:
