You don't need the pet, just pcPuppyOS and the separate winetools download. You need to wait for the next release, which should be 'shortly.'

I have winetools included in pcPuppyOS. When I try to make a new fake windows drive or update the old one, things don't work. When I try to install things, like dcm, it fails

There is an installation sequence you have to go through to set them up, and right now, it fails.. wait for the next version, and please try again!
thanks,

Personally, I just use the "stock" installation of Wine that's included and ignore the WineTools stuff. In my mind, it's simpler. So far WineTools has just been a pain in the butt more than anything else.
(Edit for clarification: it has been more of a pain than anything else it has been, not more of a pain than anything else I've worked on...)

I'll look into the newer ntfs-3g when I get a chance.

For encryption, friedsonjm meant Dmcrypt, not Emcrypt. I don't know a whole lot about it, but I think it's supposed to support encrypting entire partitions. I don't know how you'd use that with the partition that pcPuppyOS is installed on, but you could probably use it for the other ones. There is also built in support for using it with the save-file if you don't do a full-hd install. So you could set up a small unencrypted partition just for the save-file and such, then a bigger partition for everything else. Then just don't put anything on that unencrypted partition unless it's inside the save-file or essential files (such as pup_301.sfs if you do a frugal-hd install).

Note: there is a misconception that frugal installs are slow without a bunch of ram. The reality is that they are only extra fast with a bunch of ram. Otherwise they run at more normal speeds. There is a "slow zone" when you have the borderline amount of ram so it loads to ram and leaves you with none left, which is when you should use the pfix=noram boot option (add it to GRUB's menu.lst file).


I'll try to resume work on Wednesday.

EDIT: If anyone has preferences on version numbers for the other stuff I'm looking at, now would be a good time to mention them.

Hello friedsonjm,
a script to remaster from hd install!!!!
You are my hero!!!. Any chance it will be available by itself???
That would be a life saver for those of us trying to remaster on limited ram. I would love to remaster my hd install of my Pup instead of rebuilding it every time from the live cd and packages..
Thank You




Puppyluvr..BuddaPup on p3 600 160mb, full install
Puppy Rocks!!!

pizzasgood does the programming; I just pay the bills! I'm not so certain, however, that it is possible as just an 'add on,' will see what he says.
If you have limited ram, you may want to try pcPuppyOS. With the clock and calendar and conky all running, starts off on my machine using only about 35MB RAM, meaning my 384 MB system has yet to need to use any swap file, as I'm just loading what I'm actually running. The ability to delete the 'canned' applications is built-in to pcPuppyOS, so you can get rid of OpenOffice and substitute something 'lighter' if need be, by way of example.
Sounds like it just might work for you..

Now on RC6 - the hopefully-really-final release candidate!

Okay, here's the script. I think it should work in the standard Puppy 3.01, and probably 3.00. First back up /usr/sbin/remasterpup2, then extract this and put it there.

Holy ...! We didn't already have a way to remaster from HD installs? Surprised
And you created one?!!! Pizzasgood, you rock. Cool
I won't have a use for this any time soon, but definitely a great thing to know it's here.

I forgot about this. I need to look over it again and give it another test-run or two (this time on generic Puppy 3.01), then post it on a "regular" forum area.

I don't know. I'd have to see how different 4.00's script is from 3.01's. If I remember how the script works, I don't think there's a whole lot that could have changed, so I think it might work. But I might easily be forgetting something.

There were a couple changes. This one should work, but I haven't tested it at all.

If you extract this, it will produce a "remaster_script" directory. Inside is a modified version of the remaster script from pcPuppyOS that should work in Puppy 4.00. Back up /usr/sbin/remasterpup2 and replace it with this version. I also included an "old_versions" directory which has the remaster scripts from 3.01, pcPuppyOS, and 4.00. Just in case somebody wants to compare them with tkdiff or xfdiff, or loses their original copy.
remaster_script.tar.gz

PCPuppyOS didn't work so well for me. It worked fine from the CD, however, when I installed it that is when problems hit. First boot up after installing xvesa works fine. After that, I don't get x at all. I've tried running xorgwizard for both xorg and xvesa to no avail. I think I may try another puppy.

Did you try startx? If that doesn't work, you can then check /var/log/Xorg.0.log to see if it has any relevant error messages.

That only applies to Xorg though. I don't know where Xvesa stores its error log.

By the way, RC5 is two versions out of date. The final version is here:
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=28426
I don't know if you knew that already and just posted here or not, so I figured I'd make sure. I doubt there is any difference that would affect this particular problem though.
