Have just uploaded SFS-TCZ_Linker-2.0

Fixed a bug from 1.9 and fine tuned sfs_boot_handler a little more for improved speed.

Cheers, J

Another location/url ... the Merga machine tells me:

The selected Attachment does not exist anymore

Try it again Thom, I think I messed up the first upload. Hopefully fixed now.

Good Luck, J

This seems obvious, but I thought I'd ask since I'm in a non-rebooted LiveCD system with Linker 1.9 installed...BUT, can I installed the PET for 2.0 and just continue running or am I required to reboot going from 1.9 to 2.0?

Thanks in advance...

I just uploaded SFS-TCZ_Linker-2.1.pet

I tuned up the .setup script caller a bit and also placed a restart window manager in the pinstall script. This will make sfs_linker immediately useable without worrying about rebooting.

You will still have to reboot to get /root/my_links/sfs_mnt_home populated with links to SFS's on /mnt/home but thats just a luxury.

I'm hoping this is the final version. Not that its not fun to work on, but its embarrassing to have to confess to soooo! many bugs. Wink

Rebooting is not required to use SFS_Linker. It just activates some of the extra features, my_links folder on the desktop, symlinks in /root/my_links/sfs_mnt_home, etc. These are already present if you're updating.

Just remove the older .pet, install the newer and you're good to go.

Cheers, J

Thanks for the understanding when running LiveCD.
In PUP5.2 I:
  1. remove the current "Linker"
  2. Opened QuickPET on the desktop
  3. On its menubar, click SFS, click sfs_linker which takes me to this Puppy thread.
  4. Double click the "linker" url to start the installation and when done, I have the new Linker installed on my LiveCD system.
Edited 11/22/10 at 17.39. - The Linker remains in system after LiveCD reboot (Save to CD at shutdown, of course!)

I replaced a couple of the large binaries with statically linked uclibc versions / busybox scripts (recommended that you have a statically linked busybox) ... cuts the size by over 90%, but this is just for testers

PostPosted: Mon 13 Dec 2010, 15:12    Post subject: size versus functionality  

  • Is size an issue with this PET?
  • how does this affect a system after the PET is started?
  • Does this affect the download size or the size when it is run when linking SFSs?
  • Does static links "lock" this in somehow?
I'm curious, ONLY?

the /choice folder which you could place files in to copy them into the filesystem instead of linking them has been moved to /etc/choice. So if you're making SFS's and know that files need to be copied place them in their path structure in /etc/choice. (ie. /etc/choice/root/.config/your_app).
Hi Jrb,
Thank you for including /etc/choice. Very Happy

Lighthouse Mariner ISO 5.00 G, released yesterday has SFS-TCZ_Linker-2.1-LHP.pet with an 'experimental in LHP' notification added to it. The Linker seems to work, I just don't think enough of us have used it in LHP yet, so I felt that was prudent. The new SFS files I built for G have /etc/choice.

Thanks again for developing and improving this useful tool!

Regards,
TazOC

Anything that static links against glibc is going to have a size issue (in this case ldconfig and sln)

Both

it _shouldn't_ (aside from using less resources => _may_ be faster)
gcmartin wrote:

the existing binaries are already static linked against static glibc (very bloaty) ... this is so that they can be used to fix borked up shared libraries

(btw I hacked my own minimal version of sln from embutils that is only a couple kb static linked with dietlibc, but the script to use busybox seemed a better option since it has support for more than just -s -f and -v ... I don't know for sure what options are needed)

Very nicely done. I have downloaded your version and will start testing.

Hoping for a successful test, J
