I gave up on trying to get my old settings back and just went ahead and formatted the 64GB flashdrive, used the 128GB flashdrive to boot into the puppy on it and did an 'install' to the 64GB drive.

Booted with the 64GB flashdrive and I'm slowly putting things back to the way I like it.

Running into a problem though...

At the first reboot, I chose the 4GB save as that was the largest it offered, and only a file, not a directory.

Now though, I just tried to use the utility to resize that pupsave file by making it another 32GB larger, rebooted, but it didn't seem to take.

I tried it a second time and it still shows that my pupsave file is only the original 4GB.

Any ideas what I'm doing wrong or what I might can do to fix this?

I guess this would happen with a FAT32 partition. It has a 4GB maximum file size and does not support UNIX attributes.

LateAdopter is on point. The Universal Installer was developed a dozen of so years ago to make it easy for newbies. 4 Gbs were a good size USB-Key at that time and Fat32 formatting was almost just as good as LInux. Other applications you could run under Windows, like Linux LIve USB-Creator, would also only create a 4 Gb USB-Puppy on a Fat32 partition.

Best to start 'from scratch'. Boot into the Puppy on your 128 Flash Drive. Use it's gparted to resize your Fat32 partiton on the 64 Gb stick, or Format the Unallocated part, creating a 2nd LInux Ext partition which will use most of the USB-Key. I recommend Ext3; others may recommend Ext 4 or 2. Or entirely reformat the stick. If you need to boot from a UEFI computer, you'll need to have an initial Fat32 partition but 400 Mbs in size is more than sufficient. If you haven't formatted the entire stick, you can move your Puppy files from the first Fat32 partition to the 2nd Linux partition. Otherwise, just copy these files from either your 128 USB-Stick, or download a BionicPup64 ISO, left-click it to mount/open it, and copy the files from there: initrd.gz, vmlinuz, puppy_bionicpup64_xx.sfs and all other sfses. Recommend they be copied into a Uniquely named folder. About your current SaveFile, see below.

If you do NOT have a UEFI computer, while still running from your 128 USB-Stick, open Menu>setup>grub4dos, select the 64-bit stick as the location to install it, and check the "Search only within this device" button. Whether on a newly and entirely formatted stick or the 2nd partition of that stick, grub4dos will find it, create a booloader and a menu.lst enabling you to boot into it.

If you need to boot from a UEFI computer install FrugalPup/StickPup, http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=1005485#1005485 into your 128 USB-Puppy and use it to install Bionicpup64 onto your 64-bit Stick.

About the current SaveFile on your 64-bit Stick: I recommend that you DO NOT transplant it. On first shutdown of your transplanted/re-created Bionicpup64 --which is now on a Linux partition-- you will have the option of creating a SaveFolder. SaveFolders can only be created on Linux partitions. They have no fixed size and will expand as and when you install things into it using the entire available space on its partition if necessary. LARGE SAVEFILES are not recommended.

I prefer SaveFiles to SaveFolders: they are easier to backup, transplant, and I consider them safer. I never need one greater than 2 Gbs and then only if I'm lazy. There are now available really great --fast and easy to use-- Remaster applications that combine your SaveFile with the original files of an ISO; and applications to convert a SaveFile into an adrv. Either way; a SaveFile can be kept just large enough to preserve applications settings and such new applications you install until the next time you remaster or convert a SaveFile into an adrv.

The way you keep a SaveFile small is (a) prefer External programs/portables to pet --the former are not installed; (b) use SFSes rather than pets; (c) Never store datafiles in 'Puppy Space'. Create folders on your Linux partition --or any drive or partition-- for storing datafiles; (d) don't let cache files from the web accumulate.

Drat...I'd forgot about the fat32 thing. Meh...windows <mutter> .

Okay, thanks guys, I appreciate the information and I'll see if I can hobble my way through the mess again.

Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving that celebrates it.

Subject description: F11 and F12 suppose to be the brightness button, but it doesn't work.
 

The brightness button for increasing or decreasing the brightness doesn't work.

as well as sound actually, but it can be solved by editing the hotkey in JWM Hotkey and assign it to F2AudioLower and F3AudioRise which are sound button.

Sadly, no brightness hotkey assigned in JWM, I don't know the code to activate it, but in some forum it is achievable using Terminal code, the echo thing...some thing like "echo /x11/xbacklight/intel 300" or something like that.

so, how it is done?

hi quenyan,

i've found that the brightness function keys work with some kernels and not with others, depending on the hardware.

so either try switching kernels using quickpet.... or checkout the arch wiki to manually change brightness https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Backlight

I'm running bionicpup64 on a frugal USB install. I didn't encrypt anything during the install. During boot, the only thing I am prompted for is my username and password. Is there a way to encrypt the OS or my current savefile with LUKS? If so, how? Thanks.

hi cattledog

not sure if there's a way to convert a normal save to an encrypted save.
maybe just start afresh and choose encrypted save this time

666phlib,

A driver pet for the realtek rtl8192eu wireless hardware.
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=1042736#1042736
Use this driver, not the rtl8xxxu driver.
The rtl8xxxu driver has bugs and defects.


cheers bigpup & ozsouth ... added to quickpet

see https://github.com/ValveSoftware/steam-for-linux/issues/4816
They closed the issue, but it doesnt seem to be fixed.


hi linuxcbon,

i've updated the steam.pet (now called steam-bionic.pet) and uploaded to the repo. The new pet fixes this i think and also brings in python3 when installed, allowing the installing and running of windows only titles.

I've also added the nvidia 440 driver to the repo .

both of these are available now in the PPM (once updated) and will be added to quickpet in the next few days once mirrored

I am running Bionic64-v8 CE with a fully preemptible real time kernel just compiled http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=1042981#1042981 and I am glad to report that this Bionic64 is running really well.

I am posting this from a freshly woof-CE'd Bionic64 running the 4.19.82-rt30 SMP PREEMPT RT kernel at this time. The OS is idling nicely.

Also tested the Bionic64-v8 CE with a freshly complied kernel 5.3.13_X86_64 and it is also performing well


hi rockedge,

does this kernel have extra patches applied?

hi Revolverve,

a bit late, but it was 01micko who created menu>>system>>login and security manager... and bionicpup just runs what that does when chrome and other chrome based stuff is installed... see /usr/local/petget/hacks-postinstall.sh

Bionicpup64 8.0
Frugal + save folder
Fully updated using Quikpet->Info->Bionicpup updates.

Getflash is messing up again. Rolling Eyes
Quikpet->Info->Bionicpup updates says it did this:
Quote:
10/11/2019 getflash updated ... Argolance

However, Getflash is not working.
Menu->Internet->Getflash seems to do nothing.

There is a tweaked version talked about here:
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=1042780#1042780
That one works for me.
Note:
Read the posts below this one.

Also this one made into a pet by BarryK
http://distro.ibiblio.org/easyos/noarch/packages/pet/pet_packages-noarch/getflash-1.9.pet

Have to say, bionic pup 64 pretty good light weight virtualbox vm install, using the saved to disc install option, under 1GB, works better than the often suggested ubuntu.
