fixed ISO and delta files are now uploaded.

Unintended consequences of a small .iso - quick to fix, quick to upload! Thanks a bunch, el - trying to keep up as I pour my morning coffee...

Quick first look - this one is amazing. Fast, stable, got sound, vision & connected (even with Fris. on an old Athlon2500 system) at boot up, just a browser+FP and we're in business. Great PPM selection, but loadsa essentials already in Control Panel. A real kick in the rear for all those ostriches who are either unable or unwilling to provide small distros - DW keeps churning them out daily, despite guru Jesse's commentary. Why make regular punters suffer someone else's choice of apps?
Customised distros and special requests are always going to need individual attention, so plenty of scope for senior developers without compromising the base station. Great work, el.

elroy,
My oops, Late last night I missed the preinstalled panel mounter and added another. Edited my earlier post to reflect that. Now really really really good.

Billtoo, please excuse: I'm new at this.

How can I get a system description like you did?

Thanks,
Sheldon

Hi Sheldon,
I installed hardinfo and did a report with it and then copied and pasted the info into a txt file in geany text editor.
Both hardinfo and geany are available in the puppy package manager.
You can open the hardinfo report with firefox or some other web browser.
You can then paste the geany file into your message on the forum.

Noticed that lina-lite-002 has the caroline-003 DISTRO_SPECS. I was wondering if the wrong version and sfs ID will generate issues in updates as well as full installs.

BTW, nice going!

Indeed, it upsets the custom builder. No problem with Adrive, just rename 003 to 002, but then looks for 003 files in the iso directory.
Main goal was an adrive with my maximal apps, and that went without a hitch. My Fat adrive is 33MB now.

Fixed ISO & .delta files are on the server. This should correct the version error in the DISTRO_SPECS.

The file Marv provided should work for creating an adrive from a setup with a savefile in place.

To create an custom ISO from the custom-builder (with or without a savefile in place) or a new adrive from a fresh setup without a savefile, you would need the fixed ISO/delta. Or you could manually do the fixes without downloading the ISO/delta by doing the following.

1) From your installation directory, right-click the puppy_lina_002.sfs and extract to directory. Enter the directory. Use the file Marv provided and replace the /root/.packages/DISTRO_SPECS file.

2) Use the DISTRO_SPECS I've attached and replace the file in /etc. This file has the same name as the one Marv provided, but is actually a bit different. Back out of the directory. Right-click the puppy_lina_002 folder and choose Convert to Sfs Package. This will take a long time to convert, so be patient.

3) From your installation directory, right-click the initrd.gz file and choose the Open with Other Application option. On the bottom of the dialog click on Use a custom command. Enter edit-initrd.sh. Follow the directions of the dialogs that pop up. It'll create a directory that you can edit in /root. Replace the DISTRO_SPECS in this folder with the one I've attached. When you're finished, go to your installation directory and left-click the initrd.gz file. It'll pop up a couple dialogs asking if you want to save your changes, which you do.

Subject description: custom builder
 

I started with a frugal install of the fixed 002.iso.
I tried the custom builder for the first time, created an iso and did
a frugal install of that iso on another pc.
All of the pets that I added were there but the ones that I had added
with ppm weren't, I've added them back plus installed the proprietary
nvidia driver etc.
Suspend works on this pc where it didn't on my original 002 frugal
install on the other pc.
The iso grew to 236.5 mb

EDIT:I used the following pets:
a52dec-0.7.4-i686.pet
