Hi RHS; Any thought to making sfs_load use ext2-3-4 and brtfs image files?

Just a thought to making it complete in it`s capability...

Hope this will work.


Yapp almost works, haven't got xterm so == small problem

Thanks for pointing me in the right direction though, used info to create bash function
Code:

function list_sfs() {
   grep EXTRASFSLIST /etc/rc.d/BOOTCONFIG  | awk -F "=" '{
                                      gsub("\047","",$2)
                                      gsub("\042","",$2)
                                      print $2
                                           }'   
}

Can't see any hijacker.

Also no one has posted and/or published a fork of sfs_load in this thread here.

So, what's the problem?

A few images, that shows possibilities of an application, that's set 'on top' of sfs_load to use sfs_load in a much smarter way, than it is possible by sfs_load's own gui?

Yeah, I have examined sfs_load a lot and made some modifications for the use of 1.3.9 in LazY Puppy.

But, sorry, sunburnt.

Did you ever have a look into sfs_load?

I can do some modifications, but I'm not able to create really a fork of sfs_load or to extend it with new functions.

So, dear Karl, looks like still no fork is going on here...

PostPosted: Sat 05 Oct 2013, 17:59    Post subject: Trouble with sfs_load of devx file in Precise 5.7.1.
Subject description: sfs file fails to load either manually or at boot.
 

I have the following error occur when I try to load the devx_precise_5.7.1.sfs file in a fresh frugal install of puppy_precise_5.7.1. The same error occurs on two different machines, and I re-downloaded the devx file both manually and via the desktop "install" icon. Both machines are i686 boxes. Other sfs files load OK (e,g, virtualbox-4.2.12-x86.sfs4.sfs)

Looks like the devx is in the 571 directory?
Try moving it outside (/mnt/home/) and see if that helps.

That worked! So what's the trick to being able to have all the files for the install self-contained in a subdirectory?

Hi.

Just want to make a new request for an option to disable copy function of sfs_load and instead to let sfs_load load SFS Modules from the SFS Modules location.

Thank you very much!!!

Downloaded and done some testings. I found I would still need to do some modifications for the way I'm using it.

But this reduces my effort to modify it a lot!!!

In fact I do need to insert just two parts to get it working for my purposes as it is wanted. First is:

Code:
# Get redirected boot directory
if [ -f /tmp/redirected_lp2bdl ]; then
   read TMPPSUBDIR < /tmp/redirected_lp2bdl
   NEWPSUBDIR="`basename $TMPPSUBDIR`"
fi

inserted at line 61 and second is:
Code:
if [ "$NEWPSUBDIR" != "" ]; then
   PSUBDIR="$NEWPSUBDIR"
fi

inserted at line 2229.

All testings are going well. I'm going to install this version now permanently (doing a new remaster).

Again: Thank you very much!!!

Hi.

I have to post an issue in sfs_load 2.0.2 which I did experience already in version 1.9.9.

If having a SFS loaded and removing some files (I did try to remove some files from /usr/share/applications and also from /usr/local/bin), those removed files re-appear in the running OS when unloading the loaded SFS files.

I did try this in several Puppies with several files - same results.

Though, it seems not to happen with files that are only changed (changed its content e.g.).

Well thought I should double check and my crappy little sfs loader/unloader does not do this. Indeed there is a whiteout file left in the pup_rw layer which means the deleted items remain deleted even if the sfs is unloaded and then reloaded later on or after a reboot....sorry if this is what is supposed to happen. Oh yes the same applies to my sfs save as I did not do things the way snapmerge/multisession handles whiteouts either. In the case of my sfs loader there is NO whiteout handling as aufs does it so why would I need to?

Perhaps disinguishing between the way aufs works and the way puppy handles its layered filesystem might actually help to solve such issues.

ps only having fun..ignore this post as usual
