The user needs outside savefile enough space, recommendation has been even 10 Gb and there he should create /woof directory.He needs to read this http://bkhome.org/bones/index.html and follow BK`s writing howto setup bones. Then he can proceed by executing "bones download" in terminal in /woof directory and again use BK`s tutorial http://bkhome.org/woof/index.html.

Here is also quite comprehensive guide made by Iguleder: http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=47331

It is possible to build distro with GUI by launching in terminal "./woof_gui" or launch scripts in terminal in number order: "./1download", "./2createpackages", "./3builddistro", but then the user must first fill /woof/DISTRO_SPECS with right information before starting "./1download" to download packages from the repos. There are /woof/support/HISTORY_DISTRO_SPECS_TEMPLATE_... for each distro from where the right information can be checked.
Woof_gui offers box where you can select one of those templates. Woof_gui helps building when you dont know much about how it works.

At the first time I would recommend using from terminal:"woof_gui". With it the user can select which distro he/she is going to build, update package databases, download packages, process the packages and build the distro. Woof_gui launches scripts needed in each phase. Big if everything goes allright the user has builded new distro with latest woof and all updates and fixes are included, which BK has uploaded to the woof.
The scripts guides during the building process and asks sometimes how you would like building to process.

The resulting ISO, devx.sfs and optionally driver modules z....sfs appears to /woof/sandbox3 from where he can obtain it. If everything goes fine. If not I would suggest to delete everything from /woof and start again by executing "bones download" in terminal in /woof directory and then....

Hallo

Thank you very much Pemasu. I will try to translate you message into French and add it to the thread!

(And I discovered myself new links in your message, because depending of my hardware and goals I did also use other distro's as Puppy and did not continuously follow this forum)

bye

Hi Pemasu

An important detail:

We never need any full installation but only a free 10 GB (or more) ext2 partition for /boot and /woof and nothing more?

It is right?

What is if we will develop in parallel for 2 different Puppy's (because the class room has divers laptop or PC equipments) as Quirky and Fatdog64? Two partitions or two /woof's in the same partition? How big?

Bye

I have builded in frugal installation. So no need for full installation. You can name directories for example /woof-1, /woof-2 or whatever. Main thing is that you launch "bones download" inside that directory and use terminal commands inside that directory. So you can have many /woof* directories and different builds, one build inside each /woof*.

I think that for basic building to build basic puppy without any own package additions 10 Gb is quite extreme. I believe that 10 Gb is enough for couple of builds easily.

There is also possibility to save your woof and I believe launch it again but I dont know anything about it. BK has posted about that in his bones-woof instructions.
