I got StemseeS to work 99% for a remaster of my system by the SFS remaster and then dragging the SFS with the basic boot-time files and using k3B in Linuxmint to create an .iso and then using LinuxLive USB Creator in windows to write to USB, and from there a USB Duplicator can render from the USB a bootable iso that doesnt need LiLi.exe

hah, thats a lot of steps

It worked 99% because things I did would just keep disappearing, like changes to rc.local would go away, shortcuts on desktop would disappear while others remained

Im going to try simple-remaster, thanks a lot.

really, thanks. ill let you know how it goes

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

By the way, if I might recommend something thats good for puppy linux in general if you use bigger remastered sys, is to create a desktop button that will recover a large amount of RAM without affecting the system, in my experience.

How:

In the /root/startup; Right-Click Create a new empty file and call it RAM.sh folder,, place the command pasted below inside & save,

Then drag the scrip in the area of desktop with the lock and zip icons on the right. Right click new desktop link, click edit item, and call it RAM

If you make systems for others, Explain in a readme text file that it cleans the RAM memory and recovers RAM cache that program uses, without effecting the actual CopyToRam Rest of system.But that there is no confirmation, it just does it,

Heres the command:

echo 3 > /proc/sys/vm/drop_caches

Heres the Icon you can drop into / and then use Set Icon on the desktop shortcut:

---------------------------------------

Anyone know what is good to add to puppy linux that shows amount of RAM in use as a panel meter or a desktop embed? i would think a Copy2Ram based system would have wanted to have that by default, next to the green cylinder that shows space.

?????

the simple-remaster you linked is just an empty file of zero bytes, or else that file hosts inst working

that file host is bulky and strange, it attempts to download as a temp file first, then save after, use Temp-Share or File Dropper. those two are the best.

Script did not create the .iso anymore, at all. Couldn't burn to usb as it asks for the iso file.


if the iso fails you can do all the steps i did posted above. Stemsees program is useful with workarounds and I apologize for any complaining. Just dont see why someone doesnt make something like remastersys, that worked perfectly every time and did both files/folders and a .iso at the same time, and merely required use of etc/skel paste, plus had the option of adding an exclude folder to exclude from the remaster.

"the file you are trying to download is no longer available"

broken link, cant find any working link to 5.1, and stuck with 4.9 still

here....

http://www.filedropper.com/

https://temp-share.com/

those are the cleanest and best file hosters you can find.

Use option 8 on his 4.9 version

then you can rename the folder with a B instead of A at the start and use option 4 -- or you can grab the other boot-time files from the USB you already have from the default version

he gives you only 8 seconds to read and type options so you have to keep restarting the program, the counter does not disengage with any input. Be ready to know what the questions are after 2 or 3 restarts, then enter the answer fast , they are about which device to be the working directory and which device to write the new SFS on.

you can plug in a drive and keep typing sdb1 very fast before the 8 seconds expires

Sorry about that link, the file was 0kb ... ??. Deleted and uploaded the latest simple-remaster-1.0.5.pet should go all the way to iso (if selected). No utilities yet. When I was writing the utilities i tested code in terminal to check working or not, but in the script some functions don't work reliably. When I rewrite the utilities I will not include such tools as exist in puppy and work easily without too much clicking! Will include savefile, swapfile, iso from workdiriso, workdirsys update, iso to usb. Anything else? Oh yes direct-to-sfs

hi, thx for script!

what's an "apupsys"?

i want to make an iso of xtahr 2.0, which can be used just like any puppy iso. Can boot live puppy, can install a frugal, etc.

During remaster, i picked gz compression (but don't understand benefits of each).
- Would the MAX option use less RAM during remaster?
- Would selection affect the footprint of a later frugal install? Or just size of iso? Or just the size of the sfs?

i generated an sfs using your script. Then i missed an option because i was out of the room, so it timed out and used default. It might be good idea to assume that someone isn't going to stare at the long progress, just so they can catch that question before it times out. But I didn't understand what it was asking anyway.

Then it asked about "apupsys" and "bupsys" or something like that. No idea what those are.

I picked option for iso from sfs. Then i got stuck-- script asking to pick a drive, and didn't understand what was being asked, so just closed it.

THX

apupsys is the directory used to copy your operating system files into for preparation as the remaster.

gz compression is medium size quick decompression.
xz is smaller size slower decompress (not really noticeably slower on modern cpu)
xz MAX gets even smaller file size, takes longer to create and deflate.

So sfs and iso and frugal will all be affected in terms of size and decompression rate, but also should a kernel be used that has not xz compiled in would be a problem (show stopper).

complex problem... sfs-*unattended*-remaster, edit the script to choose your own defaults!! Or maybe I can provide a simple gui that lets user set defaults to be used regularly ... if I decide to rewrite this then will do so.

apupsys so named as will appear first in rox window, bpupiso contains results of remaster, ie main sfs vmlinuz and initrd plus boot files ready to make iso.

Probably pick a drive for iso file to be created on, created from bpupiso ... in case not enough space on partition or in ram!!

I often use this suite, does deserve a rewrite!
