Sub_title: a GUI setup tool for the personal storage file
 

Visit the project for the next version:
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=60678

PupSaveConfig is a GUI tool to setup the personal storage file, to custumise the name of the file, where to save, password and etc.
It is usefull for Puplet(Puppy Linux derivatives) builders.
It works on both 4.3x woof puppy(pupsave.2fs) and 4.0-4.2x non-woof puppy (pup_save.2fs), and on their derivetives.

Be carefull. it modifies /etc/rc.d/rc.shutodown, /usr/bin/wmpoweroff, /usr/bin/wmreboot.

Latest version is pupsaveconfig-1.8.3.pet

Great, for I hate it that once you saved a session every next time it keeps on saving while you do not want to.

Why not report this app in "additional software" ?
thanks

thanks to nancy reagan,
for posting a link to this PET file.

as i understand it, this tool gives the User control of their Shutdowns and they can decide not to Save at that point. but when Puppy is installed to a Hard Drive, Saves are done continuously DURING the session and this tool doesn't give any control over that.

or have I missed something ??? (with me, missing the obvious is always a very strong possibility Very Happy )

Hallo Loose or 2,

Sorry yelled too early,

For after having saved first session, it keeps on saving after shutwdown without asking you.

Most of the timeI do not want to save.

So does not help much as far as I can gather.

Sc0ttman produced tiny script which I did not dare so far.

Would be nice if it were incorporated into this pet.

2.
The constantly saving might be due to:

\system > event manager >save session

(by default set to every 30 min, can be set to 0),

So, what is the benefit of this pet?

Does it allow you to safely make a copy of the active 2fs?

One of the bigger annoyances of Puppy for me is the need (according to cautionary advice received on the forum) to save the 2fs file only when NOT running from it (or risk corrupting it).

It's a major inconvenience when you just want to try a new pet, requiring two reboots to accomplish.

I always boot from LiveCD, but with both the sfs and 2fs files loaded from the hard drive. The 2fs then loads entirely into RAM. I've never been sure what happens to the sfs file. I've got 1GB of RAM, and my 2fs file is under 800MB, so it should be possible to load both into RAM, shouldn't it?

It's the pupxxx.sfs file that gets loaded into RAM. The pupsave.2fs file is never loaded into RAM - its internal filesystem is mounted and merged into the layered filesystem. That's why you can have a pupsave file much larger than your amount of RAM.

Then what is the function of the command "puppy pfix=copy"?
