Any admin changes that effect pup_save files get placed in a /etc/skel folder which can get copied (eg, to $HOME) and thus saved. Then, just note changed files for updates.
I thought easy upgrade was the main target for the idea of pup_save. - Save your pup_save file, and all personal additions are stored??? Why store things elsewhere?
Sigmund


Maybe I'm getting confused.....To update, I have to use pfix=ram, so can't use my old pup_save, and instead start from scratch building a new one. Am I missing something here?

If changed environmental/config files were placed in /etc/skel, the user could boot with the old pup_save, and simply copy over altered files without starting from scratch....no pfix=ram. Reboot and all is well.
At least I think that's how it works. Smile

May have been mentioned before: something is wrong with the USB install (install created via Universal Installer), reports 431.sfs not found. Used initrd.gz and vmlinuz from generic 4.3 to fix it. Probably initrd.gz error?

This is a fresh, full hard drive install of Stardust 013, made with 01micko's pup_stardust-012.iso___pup_stardust-013.iso.delta update to Stardust 012.

One thing not sure about. When I did the delta update to Stardust 012, it made a new file called new file.iso I had to rename it to Stardust 013.iso

That is a known issue with the older version of Xdelta, instructions are linked to in my signature. Wink

(easiest way is to rename .delta file BEFORE using.. if you have old delta with ":" replace "___" with ":")

I see......initrd.gz is grabbed from jrb's special edition of Puppy 4.3.1 to support newer broadcom wifi-chips. If you like to dive into this, it would be great if you'd tested this iso, just to see if usb-install works here. I think the problem only occurs when installing to a vfat partition. I have Stardust on my pen (ext2), and it works just fine.

So we can trust that there will never be any new config/environment files that get updated and overwritten by pup_save files?

So Stardust 013, 012 have the old version of Xdelta program?

You can never trust a home brewed os. Wink

Stardust will only get small updates from now on. We should focus on Puppy 4.4. - so, yes. - I think it will be ok to replace pup-431 in future update. Anyway, - I have no intentions to make myself a os-manager. - I think we have enough derivates.
