Anyone heard about this...would it fit with Puppy

http://club.mandriva.com/xwiki/bin/view/SoftwareRequests/TexasFlood

" Originally create for Resulinux, Texas Flood is a powerfull boot and after-boot accelerator, by Luciano Andress Martini. It can give you a system from 0 to KDE in 7 seconds and a high performance in old machines. "

Hi Chris,

I was about to post this in the MachBoot thread

Quote:
Just discovered a very similar project : Texas Flood

It is part of Resulinux, a Brazilian distro. ( site in Portuguese)

Booting the live cd from zero to KDE in 7 seconds!

I tried a machine translation of the site, and it all looks most impressive, but of course a lot is lost in translation.
Any Puppies in Brazil?


and then discovered your post here..
Seems like a fascinating development!

Wouldn't this be wonderful with Puppy?
Wonder what the Clever Dogs here think about it.. Laughing

In the quote the link to Resulinux got lost:

Thanks cb88!

Could you translate this first part of their forum thread on TexasFlood Green Edition: ( or at least the important parts of it?

Quote:
Texas Flood Boot System
Green Edition
Ver: 2.1 Beta3
Boot rápido e serviços balanceados para qualquer distribuição.

CUIDADO!!!
Texas Flood NÃO surtirá efeito em distribuições baseadas no Upstart(como o Ubuntu), porque não será instalado corretamente.
Aguardem pela edição especial do Texas Flood for Ubuntu

Gostou do Texas Flood?
Aprensentamos a você nossa solução Linux pronta para multimídia, sevidores, estações e computadores pessoais: http://www.resulinux.com .
Experimente já! É de graça!

CHANGE-LOG BETA 3:
-BOAS NOTÍCAS PARA USUÀRIOS DE DISTRIBUIÇÔES COM UPSTART(como o Ubuntu): Comando texasflood-install-sysvinit para instalar o sysvinit nestas máquinas. Se o sysvinit incluído no pacote trouxer problemas, poderá voltar para o Upstart com texasflood-remove-sysvinit.
-Correção para usuários que utilizam home separada no método fstab.(não utilizar com Resulinux)

Em caso de dúvidas não respondam mais este tópico, usem nosso novo fórum: TexasFlood: http://www.resulinux.forumdebian.com.br/web/forum/viewforum.php?f=49

Criado originalmente para o Resulinux, o Texas Flood é um poderoso acelerador de boot e pós-boot, programado por Luciano Andress Martini.
Ele permite que você obtenha um boot de 0 a KDE em até 7 segundos e um desempenho altíssimo mesmo em máquinas antigas.

A Green Edition é uma edição especial e mais suave do Texas Flood.
Preparado especialmente para distribuições que não foram projetadas para ele.

Licença e Condições de uso:
Este software é disponibilizado gratuitamente sob a licença GPL e isto representa a exclusão de sua garantia.

Baixando, Instalando e Calibrando:

1-Instale o HAL, o UDEV e também o hwsetup-ng se já não estiverem instalados:
Código:
apt-get install udev hal discover1-data
wget ftp://neacm.fe.up.pt/pub/resulinux/debs/hwsetup-ng_0.2.1_i386.deb
dpkg -i hwsetup-ng_0.2.1_i386.deb


Texas Flood não deve ser usado com o upstart porque eles entram em conflito.

2-Download e instalação:
Código:
wget ftp://neacm.fe.up.pt/pub/resulinux/debs/Texas_Flood_2.1.deb
dpkg -i Texas_Flood_2.1.deb


3-Calibrando e configurando o Texas Flood para a sua distribuição:
Passo A - Calibrando: Se você não utiliza o KDE deverá calibrar o TexasFlood para o seu ambiente gráfico mudando o wait_process. Isso deverá ser feito editando a linha wait_process do arquivo /etc/texasflood.conf.
O wait_process vem pré-configurado para o KDE assim:
wait_process="kicker". Para outros ambientes é preciso usar outro wait_process ou o Texas Flood deixa seu sistema lento.
Como saber o meu wait_process?
O wait_process é um processo de preferência do usuário que é carregado após a carga completa da interface gráfica. No caso do gnome você deverá usar o gnome-panel.
E se eu uso o modo texto?
Coloque wait_process="init" e gi="0".
Passo B - Configurando: Alem do wait_process pode ser preciso configurar a opção gi_command="kdm" troque kdm pelo comando que chama sua interface gráfica, para gnome normalmente usamos o gdm, mas nem toda distribuição segue este padrão.

4- O Boot do meu sistema ficou mais lento ou simplesmente não mudou em nada, o que fazer?
-Você não ve uma tela de boas vindas do Texas Flood durante o boot? Isso é sinal que o Texas Flood não foi executado. Consulte o fórum.
-Desabilite no /etc/texasflood.conf o hald. Mude seu valor de 1 para 0. Se isso for positivo entre em contato com o fórum. Não é o hald que esta causando o problema, na verdade seu sistema não esta conseguindo chama-lo através do Texas Flood por algum motivo!
-Verifique se você configurou adequadamente o wait_process.

Talvez tenha sido difícil instalar o Texas Flood! Estamos trabalhando num painel de configuração para facilitar a vida dos iniciantes.


From the rest of the thread, I get the impression TexasFlood only works in Debian based distros like Ubuntu or LinuxMint?

I ran it through google a while ago, but it seemed like it was a SystemV based deal. Puppy uses his own boot scripts so I don't know if it would work.

fast boot and balanced services for any distro...
will not work on systems based on upstart...

then something about beta3 offering upstart support...

questions go here (that is what they said...): http://www.resulinux.forumdebian.com.br/web/forum/viewforum.php?f=49



I'll try to translate better later very busy with school this week projects due...

the green edition is a more refined version for distros not meant for texas flood...
1-
install HAL UDEV and hwsetup-ng if they are not already...
code:
apt-get install udev hal discover1-data
wget ftp://neacm.fe.up.pt/pub/resulinux/debs/hwsetup-ng_0.2.1_i386.deb
dpkg -i hwsetup-ng_0.2.1_i386.deb

2-
download and install
code:
wget ftp://neacm.fe.up.pt/pub/resulinux/debs/Texas_Flood_2.1.deb
dpkg -i Texas_Flood_2.1.deb


3-
calibrating and configuring texas flood for your distro...

step A calibrating if you will not be using KDE you should calibrate texasflood for your graphical environment by changing the wait_process. this sould be done by editing the line wait_process of the /etc/texasflood.conf file

the wait_process is preconfigured for KDE like below
wait_process="kicker"
for other systems it is nessecary to use another wait_process or it will make your system slow...
for genome use "gnome-panel"
for text mode use wait_process="init and gi="0"

Step B configuring bneyond the wait process you need to configure the gi_command="kdm" option change kdm for the command that starts your graphical interface for gnome we normally use gdm but not all distros follow this standard

4-my system is booting slower or nothing has changed what should i do?
you didn't see a texasflood boot screen? that means texasflood did not run...
disable hald in /etc/texasflood.conf by changing 1 to 0 (cb88>>if that don't work you need to learn protugese or find an engish speaking dev Smile )

also make sure that you changed the wait_process correctly

maybe you had a hard time installing texasflood we are working on a noob friendly configuration panel !!!

actually according to the devs it was not initially compatable with ubuntu because of upstart but that has changed I guess most of that is bug reports much like here on the puppy forum when we get something new working I bet that the texasflood devs would be helpful if anyone interested would talk to then about making it puppy compatable loads of brazilians can read english just fine... so who is up for it?

Thanks for the translation, cb88!

I don't think you need to spend time to make a "better" translation. It is perfectly understandable. Thanks again.

translators should only translate into their native language in most cases (I know I wouldn't be very comfortable translating into portugese even though i could fairly well) I would problaby translate things in a round about way that a native protugese speaker could make more plain

My point is that we should double check each other....

just out of curiosity the portugese of portugal is a little different is it not or is that only in the pronunciation?

I working in an English and a more stable version of Texas Flood.

Cb88 can help me with the translation of Texas Flood to english.
I create Texas Flood to be an universal program, but the Debian Package and the use of Portuguese is not a good choice .

Because these, the new versions will be use a self-extract or a compressed file. And Texas Flood need to be in english language.
Cb88 is the man can do the translation that for all linuxers and turn Texas Flood an universal program.

I wanna put an english website for Texas Flood translated by Cb88...

An special puppy version of texas flood is incoming for this month.

Thank you for, Puppy users..

Texas Flood really can boot a kde 3.5.7 or a gnome in a 96mb of ram machine, with a usable performance. Indexdata(www.indexdata.com.br), have tested hard Resulinux.
