Hi RSH !
Thanks for your explaination how sfs files compared to pets work .
So it encourages me more using sfs files .
They seem to me more comfortable to use .
Seems they causing a lot less trouble then pets .
I am converting pets the way you describe above to sfs files and i am
quite satisfied using them without loading ,ust using a "execsfs" pet installed ,which execute sfs files while right click on them,using (in menue which opens right click on it "execsfs") execsfs .
But not always those converted sfs files do work .Dont know why .

I am using mostly dpup exprimo (because of E17 Enlightenment desktop i like it very much) or Upup Precise 5.4.4 on a Usb stick with a choice of " no save at shutdown " option .
This let me do wild experimenting without damaging my system .

Your engagement in using sfs files and prefering them over pets was the reason which attracted me to your project . I am just a linux beginner . ,with your nonlinear unconventional way of thinking ,inventing a lot of useful " crossover-tools" somehow you are inspiring those more skilled developers to refine their projects with your sophisticated ideas.

Just a naive question of a linux beginner ....could most , if not all pets replaced with sfs files ????

Seems to me that sometimes its hard for you to express your visions . Those topics your working on are not so easy to describe.

Sorry for my bad grammatics (long time ago since i went to school ).

OK RSH ....wish you luck and Keep on rocking .

Hallo, backi.

Ich antworte Dir in unserer Sprache, da es schneller geht (hab' gerade nicht so viel Zeit).

Ich kenne das Programm, das Du verwendest: SFS-Exec von seaside. Ich habe es getestet und es ist durchaus brauchbar, allerdings hat es wesentliche Nachteile gegenüber SFS P.L.U.S..

Wenn Du ein Programm mit SFS-Exec gestartet hast (über den Rechtsklick), wird die sfs Datei eingebunden. Beendest Du das Programm, mußt Du die sfs Datei manuell entladen. Anderenfalls wird die sfs Datei ein zweites mal eingebunden, wenn Du für einen erneuten Start des Programms die sfs Datei erneut mit Rechtsklick anklickst,

Ein weiters Problem entsteht, wenn mehrere Programme in einer sfs Datei zusammengefaßt sind. Ich habe eine DE lokalisierte Version dieses Programms in meinem LazY Puppy System und wenn ich diese Funktion auf das LP2_AudioStudio.sfs anwende, passiert nichts.

Ich verwende zur Zeit ein System, desssen SFS Datei 106 MB groß ist. Zusätzlich habe ich eine Erweiterungs SFS Datei für LazY Puppy, die 14 MB groß ist. Insgesamt hat das System also eine Größe von 120 MB ---> kleiner als das Original Lucid 528-4 ISO. Aber einiges installiert, das in Lucid nicht vorhanden ist: xdotool, DesignSwitcher, SoundSwitcher, BackupSettings und vieles mehr.

Mit geladenem Erweiterungs SFS verfügt das System über zur Zeit exakt über 442 Startskripte für 442 Programme in 286 SFS Dateien. Alle jederzeit ausführbar durch einen Klick auf dessen zugehörigen Menüeintrag.

Zuhause grundsätzlich und immer Live im RAM, ohne Speicherdatei. Für den Proberaum habe ich mir ein LazY Puppy Derivat, Osiris Studio, erstellt, das alle wichtigen und benötigten Audioprogramme fest installiert hat. Dort benutze ich eine Speicherdatei, aktuell 512 MB. Alles Andere ist wie gehabt.

Ohne seasides Arbeit schmälern zu wollen, die sicherlich hilfreich für mich gewesen wäre, während der Entwicklung von SFS P.L.U.S., hätte ich es früher entdeckt, muß und kann ich doch die Behauptung aufstellen, daß LazY Puppy SFS P.L.U.S. zur Zeit das Beste ist, was Puppy Linux im Bereich SFS-Handling zu bieten hat.

Die genannten Fakten belegen dies eindeutig.

Und nicht wenige sind drselben Ansicht bezüglich LazY Puppy im allgemeinen. Wer das Glück hat, es verwenden zu können, für den ist es ein Paradise Puppy und das Beste und komfortableste Puppy Linux (Derivat) das derzeit erhältlich ist.

Das Problem, daß es nicht auf allen Rechnern läuft ist ja nichts LazY Puppy spezifisches, sondern allen Puppies zu eigen.

Ich habe in Puppy Linux (dank dem hervorragenden Grundsystem Lucid 528-4 von playdayz und 01micko) mehr gefunden, als ich zu hoffen wagte, nachdem ich die Suche nach neueren Programmen für Muppy 08.3F aufgeben mußte. Ich habe alles und noch mehr zurückgegeben und inzwischen ist LazY Puppy mein Main OS an allen Computern, die ich verwende.

Einzig zur Aufnahme von Drum-Solo-Videos muß ich XP verwenden, da die Videosoftware nur mit der Hardware und umgekehrt zusammenarbeitet. Leider nicht zu installieren in Wine. Ich plane aber, das nächste Drum-Solo-Video, das ich aufzeichne jeweil mit Openshot und KDenLive zu bearbeiten und in die endgültige Form zu bringen (wenn möglich, Live im RAM ohne Speicherdatei, einfach, um zu dokumentieren, daß es geht).

---

So, 442 Programm aus 286 SFS Dateien fest im System ist ja schon mal geil, oder? Aber es kommt noch dicker/besser. Das LazY Puppy SFS P.L.U.S. in meinem privaten System behandelt inzwischen nicht mehr nur Programme aus SFS Dateien.

Ich kann Startskripte erstellen, für Programme, die in Wine installiert werden müssen (setup.exe, install.exe). Wenn ich das erzeugte Starskript ausführe, wird Wine geladen, heruntergeladen, wenn nicht vorhanden, die zu installierende Programmdatei nach dem Herunterladen und Laden von Wine installiert und nach der Installation das soeben installierte Programm ausgeführt. Alles Live im RAM ohne Speicherdatei, über den erzeugten Menüeintrag oder das Deskop Icon.

Exakt dasselbe kann ich mit portablen Anwendungen für Wine machen. Ich habe Menüeinträge in meinem System, die starten z.B eine zu installierende Version von TagScanner, die auch als portable Version funktioniert - ich kann also auf die Verwendung des PortableApps-Starters verzichten.

Und zum Schluß: exakt dasselbe kann ich mit portablen Linux Anwendungen machen. Zur Zeit habe ich auf meinem USB Stick 69 portable Linux Programme (Cinelerra 2.15CV, GIMP 2.7.2, Blender 2.5.9, Audacity 1.3.9, QTractor 0.4.6 etc.pp) ausführbar über den Menüeintrag oder das Desktop
Icon.

Das ist längst nicht Alles, soll's aber hier erst einmal gewesen sein.

Gruß,

RSH

EDIT:

Ich denke, ja, grundsätzlich sollten alle .pet Dateien als .sfs verwendet werden können. Wenn SFS Dateien nicht funktionieren, die als installierte .pet Version aber zu funktionieren scheinen, so liegt dies zumeist an Dateien, die sowohl im System als auch in der SFS Datei vorhanden sind. Beim iInstallieren werden vorhandene Dateien überschrieben. Beim Laden von SFS Dateien werden diese Dateien aber nicht überschrieben, was dann eben das Programm in der SFS Datei nicht starten läßt.

Ich habe deshalb in meinem LazY Puppy qt, sqlite, gtkmm, glibmm goffice mplayer und einige andere Backends inclusive derer Frontends ausgebaut und lade alles einzeln hinzu, denn das Beste an LazY Puppy SFS P.L.U.S. ist: die Startskripte laden weitere benötigte SFS DAteien automatisch nach, bevor das Programm aus der Haupt SFS DAtei (die des Startskipts) gestartet wird. So kann z.B Lazarus zwar ohne das devx geladen und verwendet werden. Zum kompilieren von Quelltexten wird aber das devx benötigt. Das Lazarus SFS enthält diese Information und wird von dessen Startskript ausgelesen. Starte ich also Lazarus, überprüft das Startskript evtl definierte Abhängigkeiten und lädt diese automatisch, wenn notwendig.

Da ich nun kein qt mehr installiert habe, kann ich Programme verwenden, die mit unterschiedlichen Version von qt arbeiten. Die Startskrite prüfen sogar, ob SFS Dateien miteinander kolliedieren und bieten dann das Entladen des geladenen SFS an, bevor das neue hinzugeladen wird. Arbeite ich also gerade mit Openshot und will mti KDenLive weiter- oder neu arbeiten, wird Openshot inclusive seiner Abhängigkeiten entladen, bevor KDenLive geladen wird ---> diese kollidieren miteinander und "wissen" dies.

Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy

Thank you RSH!

Thank you for the kind reply which seems completely clear to me. Although I need to use a 64 bit Puppy, A few days ago I tried Lazy Puppy 2.0.2 Final to gain experience. However, there seemed to be a hardware problem with the networking chipset. So, I could not access smokey01.

Has anyone used SFS P.L.U.S with Fatdog64? What I am doing is a bit different perhaps? I have 16GB RAM and I do a CD boot to RAM. There is no HD or SSD in my machine. So, I am unsure about the complications of remastering, generating the modified sfs and runscripts with no HD.

I like Fatdog64 very well. It has no hardware issues with my machine and I am comfortable with the way it works.

This machine does have USB3 ports and I use those for saving downloaded files.

Again, thank you RSH for your thoughtful reply. I hope the information I have sent here will be helpful.

Cheers!

RSH yes I know I downloaded Lazy
and to my surprise when I look in the HD and the menu list
it is not there so obviously it was on my older Netbook
and not on the latest one.

I very much appreciate you taking time to explain to those interested
and sure I am very interested but you are unlucky when it comes to
the stubborn Nooby personality of Nooby. He is Die Dumme Schweden
something. I have no brain for complex things.

Sometime by luck I manage to wild guess how to get things going
and most of the time has to be hand held step for step or else fail to work.

Took me three frustrating attempt to get Pemasus Upup Precise to work
for Spotify. I could not understand his description. I am that stupid sadly.

Third time it just worked but not due to me just pure luck.

So sure I will test your set up sometime in the future, Say within
a month or so. Just now I feel too insecure Smile

I do love what you do very much so hope you get many testers that
can tell what happen on different hardware and so on. So good luck indeed

PS I actually listen to three different German Middlewave? transmitters
just because they are there but don't get much of the language.

Sadly google fail to make good English out of your german.

Thanks Backi!

You made a comment to RSH that I have wondered about.
I trust he wrote to you in German to not having to deal with
language barrier. Typically using google the German to English
needs much improvement.

Quote:

What I would want to know is things like.

Should I use the SFS P.L.U.S. 2.0.3 on the Lupu Puppy 528-005
or should I go over to RSH's Lazy Puppy with built in SFS P.L.U.S. 2.0.3?

Would that one have features that work better together.

I guess it means I have to download each pet instead of getting
it built in from start? Okay should read on Lazy page first.

All this rebuilding needed RSH having done it he need to place it
on a server that is easy to load from.

Sure I am curious but I usually fail with even simple things so ...

Hi.

@DrDeaf

I know LazY Puppy runs on some 64bit computers but mostly these computers do have hardware which is too new for the LazY Puppy ---> it's based on lucid 528-4 which is made from ubuntu lucid 10.04.

With 16GB RAM you should be able to do all the jobs (convert the sfs to LazY Puppy and creating the RunScripts from the sfs) in RAM, even without any hd.

All you need to do is do a right-click on the sfs and choose the action you want from the context-menu (right-click-menu).

I do not know Fatdog64 but I think to remaster this puppy should be just as it is in other puppies. All you have to do is to keep some files in some directories in /root. Information on these files is noted at first post. Usually you'll get a option to edit /tmp/root at the remaster process. Just copy the files from the directories in /root to the directories in /tmp/root.

If you can use edit-sfs from pizzasgood, you can put the SFS P.L.U.S. manually into the Fatdog's sfs file ---> so, this way there'll be no need to remaster Fatdog the usual way.

@nooby

I can not tell you, what to do. If you are using lucid 528-005 you'll have to install SFS P.L.U.S., do a remaster and collect all applications you want to use, make sfs (if not already a sfs), make RunScripts etc. Everything is totally easy and comfortable.

LazY Puppy has everything ready to go, plus a lot of applications already available as sfs and they are downloaded automatically from the web (smokey's server) at first use (if not already downloaded and/or installed). The sfs files are downloaded and saved to boot directory. So, make sure the boot directory is mounted.

My answer to backi, written in German language was made using German, because I did not have the time at this moment to think and to write this in English language. I will translate this later tonight, to make English users (better saying non-German-users) able to understand all information from this post.

About Spotify: here is a portable linux application of Spotify (and some more):
http://sourceforge.net/projects/portable/files/
Spotify is placed at the middle of the list.

Yes, google fails mostly on every language, except you have to translate just single words. Laughing

I have installed the SFS PLUS 203 latest.
But your description on how to do the spotify
I don't get how to make a pet out of the spotify directory.
I even installed dir2pet but that did not give any gui
or menu entry so don't know how to do that part.

You wrote

Right-click and extract all the .pet files,
Yes did that and that created three different directories

copy all extracted files/directory contents into the extracted spotify directory,

That can not be done because it already have such directories
and it ask which one it should delete for to copy it over.
So I tested to move the whole directory withour opening it
and that worked so in the end I only had one Spotify dir then

right-click the directory to build a .pet package,
This part you have to explain how one do that in Lupu.
There is no choice there on how to make a pet out of that dir.

And maybe it does on work unless I extrace the other files
but then are you sure I should delete the spotify versions of
the doublets?

right-click the .pet package to convert to (LazY Puppy) sfs. Done.

So could you give some hint on how to do this again hopefully?

Hi nooby.

Copy all extracted files/directory contents into the extracted spotify directory means to copy the contents of the extracted qt directories into the extracted spotify directory (usually you'll find directories like /etc, /usr etc. inside these extracted directories.

Don't copy the extracted directories into the spotify directory.

Doesn't the lupu have a right-click option to build a .pet package? if not, it should be available in don570s right-click tools --> somewhere on the forums utility section.

You wrote: and it ask which one it should delete for to copy it over.

Which file manager do you use to copy the files?

Don't use Gnome-Commander for such actions!

Gnome-Commander removes the existing files/directories before copying!

Use ROX filemanager, ROX keeps the existing files and just adds the new ones.

---

OK. I will rebuild this one later this night and I'll upload this to my mediafire account to download.

---

For anyone else interested in this here and might have problems with remastering:

Send me the remaster script of your puppy (usually remasterpup2 in /usr/sbin) (add Info of puppy version to the your attached/sent script) and I will modify it for you to make sure, you'll have all the needed files in every remaster later made by yourself.

@DrDeaf

Please tell me the exactly version of your Fatdog64. I would like to try to put SFS P.L.U.S. manually into its main sfs and upload this one also to my mediafire account. So, you and other users could download and use this.

This here is the translation of this post:
http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=668339#668339

Nooby, DrDeaf, there is some new information at the post above.

---

Hello backi.

I reply in German language, because I don't have time to think and write this in English language at the moment.

I know the program you are talking about. The SFS-Exec by seaside. I have tested it and it seems to be useful. But it has some disadvantages compared to SFS P.L.U.S.

If running a program (right-click on sfs) via sfs-exec, then exiting the program and run later again via sfs-exec will mount/open the sfs again, if it wasn't manually unmounted before that.

One more disadvantage is the use with sfs files containing several applications. Using sfs-exec on the LazY Puppy LP2_AudioStudio.sfs doesn't work, nothing happens after the right-click.

Also it is needed to have the directory of the sfs files opened in rox (which means, several directories if the sfs files aren't stored at the same place).

I currently use a LazY Puppy version sized 110mb the iso and 106mb the sfs file. I have a extension sfs file sized 14mb, so the whole system is 120mb, which is smaller than the original lucid 528-4. But it has a lot of stuff installed, which is not installed in the lucid 528-4, like: xdotool, DesignSwitcher, SoundSwitcher, BackupSettings, LazImUL and many more.

Using the extension sfs my LazY puppy version currently has 442 RunScripts of 442 Programs from 286 sfs files. Each and every single program can be executet by its menu entry (or desktop icon, if created at building the RunScript) and all without the need to use a save file.

At home I don't use a save file to 100%, except doing some special testings where it would be needed. In my drumming room I do use a LazY Puppy derivative, named Osiris Studio, which has already installed all main audio applications. On this system I do use currently a save file sized 512mb.

I surely don't want to degrade seasides work on the sfs-exec, which would be surely helpful a lot at my work to create the SFS P.L.U.S., if I would have found it earlier. But I think SFS P.L.U.S. is currently the best what Puppy Linux has to offer in case of SFS use and handling.

The above named facts should demonstrate this clearly. I'm totally sure about this ---> but we should have some attention on sunburnt's AppPkg stuff.

Also I think it is similar to LazY Puppy. It is currently one of the best puppies we do have to offer. The problem that it could not be used on every computer isn't LazY Puppy specific, it's generally Puppy Linux or maybe Linux specific - so, never mind.

To the lucky ones who can run LazY Puppy on their computers and also want to use this puppy, it is surely a Paradise Puppy - even if it doesn't come with the all newest software.

I have found in Puppy Linux (because of the lucid 528-4 by playdayz and 01micko) a lot more than I could imagine after I had to quit my search for newer software for the muppy 08.3F which I've used in 2010. I've given everything I've found and some more back to the puppy community and LazY Puppy is now my Main OS on every computer i do use.

There's only one reason for me to use windows now. This is the recording of Drum-Solos, because my video software does only work with the hardware equipment and revert. Could not be installed and used in Wine. But I do plan to do all the after recording work for a drum video using Openshot and KDenLive in LazY Puppy on my next drum video recording session. If possible, all Live in RAM, without a save file . just to point out that it would be possible.

---

So, 442 programs from 286 sfs files is surely not bad. But that's not all. The version of SFS P.L.U.S., currently running in my private version of LazY Puppy doesn't only handle everything for the use of sfs files.

It can create RunScripts for applications to install in wine. It loads wine automatically, downloads it, if not available at the local computer, executes wine, installs the install.exe (or setup.exe) and executes the installed program after ti has been installed. All from the menu, in RAM, no save file.

It can do exactly the same thing for the use with portable applications for wine (PortableApps), so, there is no need for me to use the PortableApps Starter. All from the menu... ... ...

And not to forget:

It can do exactly the same for the use of linux portable applications, which sometimes needs some stuff like python etc. All from the menu... ... ...

That's not all but should be enough for now.

RSH

EDIT:

I think, each and every .pet can be used as sfs file. If application from sfs doesn't run, but runs if installed, does mean there are one or more files that where installed and are also placed inside the sfs. These files do conflict, because to load sfs doesn't overwrite these files (installing does).

I have removed from my private version of LazY Puppy qt, sqlite, gtkmm, glibmm, goffice, mplayer and some more back ends including their front ends and do load them separately as single applications sfs files. SFS P.L.U.S. doesn't only load the sfs to run the wanted application, it loads also dependent sfs files (if defined). Example: Openshot needs python, so the LP2_Openshot131.sfs knows, that it needs the python. The RunScript checks the dependencies list of Openshot sfs and loads every sfs files which is listed in the dependencies list. The Openshot runs. Conflicting sfs files could be defined also. If so, then the RunScript gives option to unload the conflicting sfs before loading the new one.

Now, that my LazY Puppy version hasn't installed the qt, I can run and use Openshot and KDenLive - which would conflict, if they would have been installed. Both sfs files do "know" this, so their RunScripts will unload each other, if selected by the user.

RSH, I apology I am a poor reader of text.
I where not aware of that one need to do a remaster
of the Lupu after installing the SFSPLUS so that explain that part.
I guess it is better I use Lazy instead then. I don't want to remaster
Lupu.

But I have this questions about SFSPLUS

Does it place the downloaded sfs files in the
Directory of the OS? Because if one lose connection
then one can not download them so would be good to
keep as many as possible always available Smile

Say I have Lazy installed on
sda2 and directory lazy then it did ask if I wanted
to move it from Downloads to lazy dir.

I ask about my problem of sda2 set to read only
in the thread about Lazy instead of here.
Thanks for your patience. Smile

But as alsways I have no idea how to get it running.
Nothing happen when one click on it. So I try to launch Lazy instead.
I am back within 10 minutes I hope.

Hi nooby.

Seems to work here in build LazY Puppy 0.0.2.



After downloading rename it to Spotify-0.4.8.213 (replace the space after "Spotify" with "-", then you can run it from terminal) and make it executable (right-click and then choose permissions).

There is a message in the terminal about wine. So, it might be needed to load wine (can't tell because I can't login).

@SFS P.L.U.S.

It is needed to be able to write to the partition, LazY puppy is installed on, because each and every sfs file will download into the boot directory. So, if you have installed LazY Puppy on /mnt/sda2/lazy then the sfs do download to /mnt/sda2/lazy.

Also: sfs_load (which is used to load the sfs in command line mode) usually copies sfs files automatically to the boot partition if found and not stored at boot partition or in boot directory.

Let us forget the Portable Spotify I don't want to do wine now
when we have Spotify for linux available so I followed your advice
re how to use Pemasu files but ...

Not having done any of this before I where not prepared it takes
very long time okay it is fast maybe if one knows what goes on
but I trusted it did not work but it took much longer than I expected.

So I manage to do this part.

right-click the directory to build a .pet package,

So now I do have a pet file named spotify.

But this part most likely need the SFS-PLUS thing?

right-click the .pet package to convert to (LazY Puppy) sfs. Done.

There is nothing there to do that so I have to install SFS plus then?
For to do that part? But did you not warn about not installing SFS pluse
to Lazy 003? It is already available as sfs most likely?
But then I should look for it in menu? Okay I take a look

Seems I have to set the MenuSuite password to off for advanced?
Because I don't know the password and There I have a lot of
LP2 SFS to make use of if I knew how to Smile

Using the sfs pet to sfs it gives this error code

'tar -xf spotify-0.8.4.10329695.tar.gz' failed in
/root with error code 2.


I tried to take a screen shot but that one say it can not save it
to the screenshot dir at mydocuments.
So is that maybe part of the sda2 set to read only for some of the sfs?

Seems the work on pet to sfs takes so much space that it run out of space.
I have Zero memory left so that maybe explains the

/root with error code 2 So maybe one have to find another solution then?

My Net book only have 1GB and that process needed more?

Ooops am I supposed to remaster Lazy 003 before I use sfs PLUS?

Sorry I am very poor at reading much text and to remember what to do.
I drown in all the details and don't remember them.

I make a save file now so it at least remember what I done have
spent hours on it so don't want to start all over again.
I need to take a break not getting what to do makes my head aching Smile

Ok, nooby.

Let me tell you something.

I think the spotify thing is a bit too complicated too learn the SFS P.L.U.S. thing, because there is some more to do, which I've overseen and not mentioned in the related post.

To learn the SFS P.L.U.S. thing I will upload a .pet for you (and other users), that would work in LazY and Lucid as well.

I think this is the easiest way to come to a successful result and to let you see the possibilities of SFS P.L.U.S.

But I'm not at home at the moment and I need to use build 0.0.3, which I do not have installed here and on my usb stick.

Meanwhile you can have a look at the LazY puppy guides in the Guides menu ---> note: its not updated to 003, but might be helpful somehow.

Yes, if you want to use any updated version like firefox 17 instead of LazY Puppy's firefox sfs you have to make the sfs (if not already a sfs) and create the RunScript and do a remaster to keep the new RunScript inside the system (but you can use everything the same way using a save file instead of a remaster!).

OK. I'll be back here, when I'm at home.
