REiZO Subject description: a frugal install to original iso rebuilder tool in mind
I've found an intresting way of zeroing out "big files" (initrd.gz, vmlinuz, *pup*.sfs) in puppy .ISOs with dd, /dev/zero, and isocp.
After compression the stripped iso can be shared with the ppl who only have frugal intstall and want to reinject those files into the zeroed-out iso, so that they can have the original iso again for burning or sharing with others 100% matching the original iso's md5sum.
I have positve results.
Is it a silly idea? I've got some scripts, but i couldnt manage to fully automate the process yet. Anyone serious bash scripter puppy guru interested?
I'm not ready to post any script snippets, I definitely want somebody skillfull intrested cowrite this tool with me.
PS.: one problem is that isocp doesnt like joilet/rockridge filenames...
