Refining puppies remaster function Subject description: Make a remaster without the need to mount a iso or have a cd in cd drive
User greengeek did ask if the LazY Puppy Remaster Suite would run in other puppies. Unfortunately it doesn't. So i have made a quick hack to make you able to refine your remaster script (remasterpup2 in /usr/sbin) to make a remaster without the need to mount a iso file or to have a cd in the cd drive.
It will make the remaster from the running system, though it needs all the files, from the iso inside the boot directory (not partition --> works also but needs directory if booting from a separate directory).
I have tested this successful in lucid 528-4 and slacko 5.3.
1. Install the attached .pet. This contains the needed files to be able to tell the remaster script from where to take the files ---> no matter if booted from /mnt/home or /mnt/sda1 or /mnt/sdd3/YourPuppy or what ever your puppy can boot. Link to the .pet is at the end of this post.
2 Open your remaster script and put the following code at the very beginning.
If you do mount the boot directory, then the whole iso will be rebuild. If the boot directory is not mounted, it ends with a message about no bootloader was found. Then you'll get only the new created YourPuppy.sfs file.
The above shown code might be different to the code inside your script. I have made lots of specific modifications - can not remember each detail.
I have attached the already refined remaster scripts taken from the lucid 528-4 and slacko 5.3 test remasters. These files are fake .gz files. Just rename to remasterpup2 (might be necessary to make executable after download).
Even though I've attached these files, i do recommend to do manually as described above.
