I couldn't get either to function the exact way I wanted, and then I joined them together and hey presto, Bob's your uncle, and all that!

This could be the new 'EmSee FatHouse'

Sounds interesting, what versions of JLH and FD did you use?
What is the size of the ISO?
Are you going to release it?
Nice

I used latest version of fatdog 710 b2 and version 701c of lighthouse.

I tried several additive methods keeping fatdog as base add using a script to add the differences. That didn't work! Then I remastered fd using sfs-unattended-remaster to make a 1.3gb media monster. But booting was problematic in fd. So I used the lighthouse initrd to boot it and at switch root it uses the fatdog init to boot to X (superfast, by the way, JL64 takes a very longtime to boot a big basesfs to desktop!). Then I had to manually create a JL64save.4fs savefile using sfs-unattended-remaster utilities, mount it and manually invoke snapmergepuppy after redefining mountpoints in the script. It saved the session and then rebooted finding the basesfs and loading savefile successfully. Subsequent restarts do not require manual invoking of snapmergepuppy.

The booting is easier because I am more familiar with JL boot codes. It doesn't need the id string. Manipulating the savefile is easier for me too. FD keyboard settings and gslapt and development functions are more stable at this time.

I will continue to develope this so as to add more polish from JL side to the FD side!

Thanks for the encouragement @jamesbond!

I am using this all the time now without a second thought! it's that much fun!

How to alter the savefile creation in FD to bypass or fool the system into beleiving 'savefile=none' as this doesn't get passed through from lighthouse initrd init to fd init?? I do understand if you would not offer a solution as it is made for FD, of course!

cheers

So FatHouse is nearly ready.

features
hotspot gui - via create_ap
text to screen
vlc 2.4 with tv scanning.
popcorntime 64
libreoffice
wifi-connect
chrome
tor with wechat, skype, whatsapp, fb-mesenger plugins
Yong - Chinese input method.
pmusic
dogradio
sfs-unattended-remaster and utilities (savefile resizer/creator) etc
master pdf editor


REMOVED;

gnumeric
abiword


The advantage for me is using the jl64 initrd, easier more puppy like options at boot.

to sort out; must add overlay_fs code from fatdog init to jl64 init.

Still working on this.

I have two versions. 1) Music production edition or 2) non-music production edition

Screencaster isn't working, no error message. Baffling.

Same here. JL64 has the 2010 fatdog screencast.sh. The 2015 version is nearly the same and fails as well. Found this on web and it works great (run in terminal)
Code:
ffmpeg -f alsa -ac 2 -i pulse -f x11grab -r 30 -s YxZ -i :0.0 -acodec pcm_s16le -vcodec libx264 -preset ultrafast -crf 0 -threads 0 output.mkv

"Find your screen’s native resolution and replace the YxZ with it (e.g: 1920×1080). Not happy with only 30 frames per second? Change -r 30 to your desired FPS." Enter 'q' or close terminal to quit. mkv file is in root directory.

That does the trick!
So, I will use this to write my own gui app.

Hi dry falls,

Would changing the file extension to .gif make a gif.
Or do I have to change the -vcodec option?

For gif I wouldn't need the audio either, so maybe I should remove that alsa and acodec options too, I think.
Please advise.
Thanks.
