My biggest problem is still to convert a .pup to a .pet.
Attempts I made failed miserably.
If I understand well a gettxt package is missing, no?

The Puppy Master made a page to explain how

http://puppylinux.com/development/createpet.htm


the easy way to do it
download this
http://dotpups.de/dotpups/System_Utilities/Dotpet-creator-MU/Dotpet-creator-MU.pet

what I do is first install the dotpup then run the app I linked you to above Dotpet-creator-MU

Well yes, I followed that explanation and used pup2pet.
But somehow the .pet created isn't installable.
I do this in dingo, maybe that's why.

Thank you for the gettext package.
I gave it a try altho Barry announced that gettext would be in his next release.

I still have no joy.

I converted two packages, but on installation of the created pet, I get the message "not enough free diskspace you have MB you need"

One of them was only 14K so that can't be a problem.

Maybe a problem still in the pup2get script?

As a very general statement with any linux version "Alpha versions are for testing only"
most stuff usually works but the devil is in the details of fine tunning things .Where you have many testers ,reporters,and bug fixers this process (of watch and wait and repair ) is greatly reduced


Wish I could have helped you out on that one
I am still trying to figure out all the changes from 2.16 ,2.17,3.00,3,01 and retro and those are "similar some what to each other "

Thank you for your advice, but that's the fun to test alpha's and see what runs and what don't.
I don't think it harms to ask about experiences of other users.

Subject description: And works on a CD/DVD multisession too !!!
 

MU,

Thanks a lot for your fantastic idea/tool.

This tool resolve my problem with CD/DVD multisession, and the fact that I am a NO HDD user.
So, I extract the original pup_301.sfs from the puppy NOP 3.01 iso, with ISOMaster.
Add, with your tool, another new software_301.sfs and the combiner result I rename it as pup_301.sfs.
Remaster the CD/DVD, with ISOMaster, putting now the combined pup_301.sfs and burn as iso.
When I load it, I have the normal puppy NOP 3.01 and inside /usr/share/applications the new software added.

Voilá , a new piece of art.

THANKS again , MU.

I, too, really appreciate this new tool which you have given us Mark! It is just fabulous! Smile With it installed I took the new KDE358.sfs which you've made, the Xfce442.sfs that JB4 made (?), the OpenOffice.sfs, the devx301.sfs, and seems so a couple of other smaller ones I had laying around, and then I combined them all into one 550meg "WM-Plus_301.sfs" and loaded just that one file. It's working beautifully in my 3.0.1 version of Puppy! Very Happy

So before I could only use 3 of the 5 due to the .sfs limitations---now I can use them ALL in one and I still have two more loops left opened should I need anything further on. Likewise, I've noticed no decrease in Puppy's speed I might add despite the fact that this squash file is unable to load into RAM. (I have 512megs of RAM plus 1gig of swap but rarely dip into swap.)

And so Mark, you have yet "another satisfied customer of your product" here. Keep up the fabulous work my dear friend Exclamation

Mazzel! mfg!

MU,

It is possible that SFS-Combiner works on Puppy 2.17.1 ??
On puppy 3.01 ALL is OK.

Installing it on Puppy 2.17.1 went OK
But when I make a new combined sfs on Puppy 2.17.1 it works partially. (make smaller sfs than the combiner one).

Please help !!.

Nemo,
you need to mount a Linux partition first.
Use pmount or MUT for that.
It then should be shown in the list.

I currently concentrate on Puppy 3, and cannot test Puppy 2 at moment, sorry.

Would this combine two Pup_###.sfs? I mean, for the purpose of combining similar Puplets?
edit: I know the answer to this now. You could, but you'd end up with a lot of extra stuff, and it may or may not boot.
