This thread post is dated. But, if there is still interest, you might find these worthwhile:I believe these will allow use of an SFS in a non-permanent fashion.

There seems that I remember another package called SFS_Grabber. But, I can't seem to search and find it using forum search.

Hope this helps

I think it is a good idea to accompany this tutorial with this one: http://puppylinux.com/development/createpet.htm

The tutorial is decent enough, but the website mentioned, provides more details and mentions how to put a pet directory back into a pet.

also the code below is useless. If you get "no such file or directory" there probably is a directory called "man" somewhere. But no it does not shrink the pet any further

Code:
find ./usr/man/ -type l -name "*.gz" | xargs -r gunzip -f
find ./usr/man/ ! -type l -name "*.gz" | xargs -r gunzip
find . | xargs file | grep ELF | cut -f 1 -d : | xargs strip --strip-unneeded

Re: no such file - with those commands you would need to be in the base directory of the pet... still some still won't have it.

Although gzipping the man pages may not shrink the pet, it is still useful for those with limited resources that need to do a full install. ... if RAM and CPU are limited enough to require a full install, chances are that the disk space is limited too. For others, the effect should be completely unnoticable.

Don't use forum search, then, use this!

Subject description: something is going wrong
 

I have been trying to make .pets and I have managed to make it work at least once!
However, recently I was trying to make a pet of Ruby-1.9.3.
I did:
./compile
make
new2dir make install

But ... the installation files ended up in the first directory - not in the one that new2dir created.
I must be doing something wrong. I have read through the material on here, but when I follow the instructions I get this odd result.
I'd appreciate any help!

[Edit: I have got it now!]

Prerequisite - A working installation of Puppy Linux with the appropriate devxXXX.sfs loaded/installed
General pet Packaging 100 - suitable for alpha testing - minimal command line
0. Find your source package (I recommend getting sources from http://packages.debian.org/source/etch/ ... use the one ending in orig.tar.gz)
1. Download the package to ../anydirectory/package-name.tar.gz
2. Open it in ROX and extract all to ../anydirectory/package-name
3. Click on the directory you just extracted to open it
4. Right click select -->menu-->terminal here
--------- <--This begins the command line part - don't worry its easy

Where can I get this pet packaging 100??
Devx for precise loaded.
