This is the best GUI I know to edit sfs.

Me too.

Except sometimes, on some installations, I can't use a working partition, only ram. A bunch of gtk errors appear and even though I select "partition" it keeps popping up asking until I choose "ramdisk".

That's really annoying. But otherwise, great app!

Edit-SFS need a ext* partition, it is not compatible with fat/ntfs.
Is this related to your problems?

Are you sure? Because I can use that ntfs partition all the time with Edit-sfs, it's just certain distros that give me that gtk error that I have problems with.

Cheers

Edit: I just tried using / as my partition, since I'm on a full install that's ext4. Same thing...

I thought of this possibility, if you used a folder fat/ntfs placed outside the pupsave.

It is abnormal.
I admit that it's been (2 years) I have not used this utility (since I do everything from the command line).
I'll try to find some time to reinstall and test it.

Regards

That's ok. Just adding my two cents, that's all. Smile

Don't know about the sfs edit utility, but I've just run

mksquashfs <directory> some.sfs

on a ntfs partition and created the sfs fine. Opened it and content ok

Also ran

unsquashfs some.sfs

and it created the squashedfs-root directory containing the content of the sfs

To see which compression choices are available - in a terminal type

mksquashfs --help

Mine show gzip, xz, lz4, lzo as available choices, but that's because I recompiled with lz4 support. It also shows the compression switch/choices

Pet does not work anymore at Home. I check for that. EditSFS is so useful !
About partition SFS needed, use your RAM, ASRI !
error was : edit-sfs, not editsfs (terminal)
Be careful using a laptop Acer. Temperature goes up to 84° celsius when editing Exclamation
I compress in Gz format first, if fine, i launch again edit SFS to compress XZ. It's my way, only my way.
"To see which compression choices are available - in a terminal type

Rufwoof, you are my best helper in this forum ! graphics, video and editSFS, thanks a lot Smile

Creating a SFS from dir with files from ntfs partition will work properly.
Creating a SFS from dir with files from vfat will work also properly.

The/a general problem will appear when trying to extract the content of a SFS to a vfat and/or ntfs partition.

Vfat will loose all symbolic links and ntfs (as well as vfat) will turn/change all plain text files without the file extension into executable script files (the ones with the green text color) - so you can't open them in a text editor anymore by left-clicking the text file.

I recommend to use ext partitions generally when it comes to the creation and/or extraction of packages - no matter if .tar.gz, .pet, .deb or .sfs etc.pp. Since you are in linux, you should do anything done on those linux files by using a ext partition generally and only there!
