Yep, unioning sfs files doesn't seem to work for a full HD install as WhoDo & I found out.

WhoDo; I just wish we'd gone for the "copy the sfs file contense to HD" instead.


I'm going to rework sfsLoader into sfsCopier for full HD installs,
but I assume there's no time left to get it into CE, oh well...

NOTE: If there's any suggestions for the sfs copier GUI... leave them here.

Hi, I always do a HDD install becaus it boots a lot quicker (I know it's my sad little need for speed) so anything you can do to make this system work would be really appreciated.Cheers

Hi veronicathecow; If your willing to test my "sfsinstaller" GUI for ONLY Full-HD installs.

Look here: http://208.109.22.214/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=17068&sid=6a868d9792ed02426ef7059b1aecb96b

It copies the contense of the chosen sfs file to a full-HD Puppy install.
Hopefully it'll also be able to remove all of the copied files, so as to uninstall it.
Being as it just copies files it's most likely that it should work very well.
There shouldn't be any problems like sfsLoader had, as it doesn't use UnionFS.
Also it has the advantage that the files in the sfs file become part of the full-HD install.
So the sfs file's become just another install package for the full-HD Puppy install.

Read the post's instructions, & make a NEW full-HD install for a TEST SETUP.
I've just written the GUI & so it's not tested at all as I don't run a full-HD.

If you do test it out, give feed-back to the post above as WhoDo & I need it badly.

Cheers... Terry

Hi Terry, I,ve just tried the hdd sfs installer and it works great. Java / Azureus + bluefish are installed without any hassle.
Thanks.
