Sorry but ...
It's only available at boot if you set it up before you shutdown.
I was thinking more along the lines of having the ability to actually select any and/or all .sfs files at boot.
You can reboot with the sfs of your choice using boot manager and sfs linker but neither gives you the "blank canvas" option.

So if you know you are going to be using open office ou can boot with it, if you are intending to compile you can select xxx.sfs and devx-xxx.sfs etc.

I need to quickly add that i am not complaining, just wishing! And new version is now installed. Thanks.

I have uploaded SFS_Linker-no_def-1.1.pet which does not have modified /usr/local/defaultprograms for people who wish to have SFS_Linking without changing the desktop icon or MIME-type behavior.

Subject description: Mount, Link and use SFS files in Puppy431 or Puppy430
 

I have an sfs that requires files to be copied to the filesystem vs symlinked.
I set up a /choice directory in my sfs. When I use sfs_linker to load the sfs file,
I expected to have the /choice files copied to /root/choice. For some reason,
they are symlinked to the mounted sfs.

I thought your script would copy /choice files.

Any help would be appreciated.

Hi ejb,
Here is a partial list of the files in my ch4-firefox-3.5.3.sfs. I have only included those files that should end up in /root. I installed the SFS before compiling this list. That is why it has /mnt/ch4-firefox-3.5.3/ out front.
Code:
/mnt/ch4-firefox-3.5.3.sfs
/mnt/ch4-firefox-3.5.3.sfs/choice
/mnt/ch4-firefox-3.5.3.sfs/choice/root
/mnt/ch4-firefox-3.5.3.sfs/choice/root/.mozilla
/mnt/ch4-firefox-3.5.3.sfs/choice/root/.mozilla-3.5.3

/mnt/ch4-firefox-3.5.3.sfs/root
/mnt/ch4-firefox-3.5.3.sfs/root/.config
/mnt/ch4-firefox-3.5.3.sfs/root/.config/rox.sourceforge.net
/mnt/ch4-firefox-3.5.3.sfs/root/.config/rox.sourceforge.net/OpenWith
/mnt/ch4-firefox-3.5.3.sfs/root/.config/rox.sourceforge.net/OpenWith/firefox_browser

Notice that /choice is not in the /mnt/ch4-firefox-3.5.3.sfs/root/ directory, but the items from /mnt/ch4-firefox-3.5.3.sfs/choice/root/ will be copied into the /root/ directory of the Puppy filesystem.

The items in /mnt/ch4-firefox-3.5.3.sfs/root/ will be linked.

Hope that is clear, J

OK, thanks, I was able to set up my sfs so linker copies the file I needed into the filesystem.
When I unlink the sfs, however, the copied files are not deleted. Is that what I should
expect??

Thanks, E

Hi, could someone give me a hand setting this up in a full install of NOP 431r1? Installed the pet but there's no sign of it on right click, so I assume its not compatible with XFCE?

I don't know anything about XFCE but perhaps this link will help:
http://thunar.xfce.org/documentation/C/working-with-files-and-folders.html
The Application that you want to Open With is /usr/local/bin/sfs_linker.

Good Luck, J

I have uploaded a new version of SFS_Linker. It will load both SFS and TCZ (tinycore linux) packages. Also contains minor improvements in file handling.

I have included two versions. One with replacement /usr/local/bin/defaultprograms so your loaded programs will become the defaults and one without.

Both contain a link to the TinyCore sfs4 repository on the internet menu.

Dear jrb, I remember you said an sfs, in order to be used by sfslinker needs to have a /usr/ dir, even it is blank, this is ever required also with your new version? anyway, having build some sfs packages recently, I remember these sfs have a /usr/ dir

Hi Dingo,
You remember correctly. Cool and that is still the case.

I needed a way for sfs_linker to check if the .sfs had mounted correctly in /mnt/XXX.sfs before continuing with the symlinking so I had it check for the existence of /mnt/XXX.sfs/usr. Likewise when uninstalling, sfs_unlinker makes sure the file has unmounted by checking to see if /mnt/XXX.sfs/usr has disappeared..

So even if your .sfs doesn't need /usr, include an empty one.

Hope that helps, J

A summary of my findings so far for TCZ files, collected by veiwing the .dep files and error messages on command line:

    firefox.tcz and thunderbird3.tcz require dbus.tcz and dbus-glib.tcz (menu items in Network menu)
    opera10 requires qt-4.5-base.tcz (on the Systems menu)
    blobwars.tcz requires libmad.tcz and SDL.tcz (on the fun menu)
    supertux - same as blobwars
    clamav.tcz requires libiconv.tcz (command line "freshclam" to update and "clamscan -r /your_dir" to run)
    gimp2.tcz requires babl.tcz and gegl.tcz (on Graphics menu)
    Mplayer-nodeps.tcz needs Glibc2.7 so doesn't work
    xfe.tcz requires fox.tcz (command line)

Dear jrb (again) can your sfslinker used on puppy 3.01 series or it needs to be hacked to result working? It would be very useful having a devx mounting on fly for 3.xx series. I have used sfslinker to live-mount devx in 4.3.xx puppy series in order to compile some apps and it has worked very fine for me

Hi Dingo,
I just tried the latest SFS-TCZ_Linker in Puppy301 and couldn't get any of my .sfs3's to mount. Not sure why. I do know that the unlinker depends on software in the woof petget manager which is quite different than the previous non-woof Puppies. Early on I tried Linker with Puppy218 which uses woof but still my sfs3's wouldn't work. As I remember it was because they were compiled against a later glibc.

Glad to hear that about the devx.sfs. I haven't tried it with linker. I don't use it that often and when I do I'm usually doing something I find intimidating so I have been conservative and mounted it with BootManager.

If you have a link to sfs's that you know work with 301 post it here and I'll try one or two of those.

Bye for now, J

made a test

- launched Puppy linux 3.01 from live Cd
- installed sfslinker
- loaded devx-sfs for 3.01 with sfs linker

result: successful; I have then tried with some other sfs (v 3.0 version, because I have discovered on puppy 3.xx series squashfilesystem v. 3.0 only is read, 3.1 not, and since 4.2.xx puppy linux series still able to read squash filesystem v . 3.0, is better, for older puppies, make v. 3.0 sfs) and installation was successful (unlinking also)

we have, however, a couple of minor issues

- first: an error message showed at sfslinker install



- second: when sfslinker installs itself, it seems de-associate icons on pinboard items so links are broken
