Very Happy Hello,
Jon, is it a full or frugal install??
If a full, there is a whole process to go thru to mount an sfs.
If a frugal, the sfs goes outside your pup.xxx folder, not inside with your pupsave.
This normally is /mnt/home..but look and see..
From the pic, looks like a full install???

@EDIT...man am I blind...Full Install...I see it now.. Embarassed
Am looking for the Post concerning Full Install use of SFS`s....
BRB...hopefully....I know Dougal made a script... if I can locate it...

Very Happy Hello,
If you`ve unpacked the SFS to a directory, you might try dir2pet and see if that works...
Prob not the most efficient way, but...

If the .pet works would you post it?

I took this off http://www.puppylinux.com/hard-puppy.htm

Code:
2. Click on the devx_xxx.sfs in a ROX-Filer window to mount it.
3. Open a terminal in the mounted directory.
6. # cp -a --remove-destination ./* /mnt/hda2/
7. # sync
8. Close the terminal
9. Click on the devx_xxx.sfs file to unmount it


My very noob question is how do you open a terminal in the mounted directory?

Also my main hard drive partition is named sda1 and my swap partition is named sda2, would I have to change #6 to get it to work?

MrMaxwell;

In directory or folder: R-clik>window>terminal here.

Quoted example is just example; You woudn't find it too easy to
change sda2 even if you wanted.

I opend the terminal in the mounted directory and ran this:
Code:
# cp -a --remove-destination ./* /mnt/hda2/
cp: target '/mnt/hda2/' is not a directory
# cp -a --remove-destination ./* /mnt/sda1/
cp: target '/mnt/sda1/' is not a directory

Any ideas? Shocked

Glad to see this is helpful.

Have you mounted that drive? Also, the .sfs will mount to something like (For DevX) /mnt/+mnt+sda3+devx_412.sfs

Also, I'll most definitely post up the .pet if i get it to working. Wink I'll just have to make sure to register it with the menu so it'll show up there...

Reverse your source and destination!
From your command line error, it looks likje you are trying to copy the files from / to the mnt/devx directory.
I think I still have the old SFS full install GUI script around.
It never did allow you to remove SFS files, but worked pretty good for installing.
If it was reposted with a disclaimer as an install only SFS utility for full hard drive installs, I cannot see any reason why that would not work.
Also, since it is a script, you might want to check it out in gleany.
Place it in /root/my-applications and then extract it.
sfsinstaller_full-HD.tar.gz
Description  Only for use with Full Hard drive installs. The Remove option does not work.

Thanks. I successfully added the contents of the devx_412.sfs to my full install by mounting it and copying the files over to / manually, just merging the contents as I went... took an hour, but it works. Very Happy I'm going to do something similar with the OOo sfs, only I'm making a .pet out of it... possibly a .pup since it was requested...
