Dear All,

How to create a 3fs/ext3 file and mount it?
What are the commands?

Looking to create a personal 3fs/ext3 file in my FAT partition for installing xampp into it.

Not asking, how to create a pupsave.3fs file.

Sincerely,
Srinivas Nayak

Code:
dd if=/dev/zero of=FILENAME.3fs bs=1M count=64;mkfs.ext3 FILENAME.3fs
for to make a 64 MB file FILENAME.3fs.

To mount it at e.g. /mnt/data:
Code:
mount -t ext3 - loop FILENAME.3fs /mnt/data
, and to unmount it:
Code:
umount /mnt/data
.

To use a unique mountpoint:

Code:
mkdir /mnt/xampp_mntpnt
, exchange /mnt/data in the example above for /mnt/xampp_mntpnt.

Yes, that would be another simple way of getting your xampp working. Just untar into that mounted ext3 file, which you could link to from /opt or you could make a directory called /opt/lampp and mount it to there. Probably better to make an sfs out of it though, since Puppy is designed to load these automatically.

Dear mcewanw,

Your idea is good, to make an sfs.

3fs was my idea Wink

I cannot claim any credit. Both ideas are quite commonly used I think. I have an underlying ntfs filesystem so I do most of my development work on a mounted ext2 formatted file there, and sfs is often used on Puppy and also tinycore and others.
