You would think so but it only offered tar with no compression options...so zip it was.

It does, but it's a two step process (tar first, then gz/bz2/xz). (You know, I have to boot into my Windows VM to confirm this Wink ) Agree that zip is more convenient.

Anyway, back on topic, if you're running full installs (which apparently missed my attention in my first reply) - the if you run root you can easily mount "/" as a branch of aufs. Of course, unionfs-fuse is probably better in this regard because it doesn't require patched kernels, so no contest if you're running other distros, and you get all the benefit.

Amigo thanks for bringing bindfs to my attention.

hmm could not be asked... zip appears to be the same compression as gzip but with an index too so i prefer it for large archives/backups as I can rescue a single file quickly and update the archive without a full rebuild.

so you have created a union using '/' as a layer using aufs? that was a query earlier. Lucid refused to do this. If so why is this not the method used in puppy for running an sfs?

Yes. As long as "/" is not aufs (which shouldn't be the case on full install, "/" should be /dev/sdxxx)

No idea Wink

well I can have more than 10 sfs and load them on the fly on a standard puppy 2.16...2.6.18 kernel so I guess it takes a few years for these things to get through Very Happy
