is it too difficult to "just try it and see"? It takes three minutes or so.

I take this to mean you want us to help by testing both conditions. Reason for my inquiry is that I am currently testing Barry's USB (full install) on a 1GB PC. The DVDs will NOT boot on 1GB PCs. I have not yet tested the DVD version on the larger RAM platforms.

I will test the full install version as soon as I get my arms around the current problems on the 1GB system in use with April64-703

Update: April64-703 testing has been abandoned. Problems with I/O subsystem and drives.

This thread is for remastering. Specifically using my scripts. That's all.

Can someone explain in idiot terms what the main difference is between this and the original remaster that comes with puppy or 3rd party tools such as mklivecd?

Thanksssssssssss

@slavvo67

I will look ito it. You were using the unattended remaster script? Only that script goes to iso, but not for April, not yet anyway. April is only covered with sfs-direct-remaster, it builds the q.sfs and packs it into the initrd.q

@Bindee

This script (actually 2 scripts: sfs-direct-remaster and sfs-unattended-remaster) provide the quickest remaster possible. It also easily includes personal customisations and settings. It does not require an original iso to be mounted or present. It takes a few minutes.

Hi Stemsee:

For now, I only use the unattended, though I do attend to it to see it working.
I looked at it after I posted and it looked like an .iso may have been made (maybe it took some time to make?). I'll check again, this evening. I'm not having any success with the USB option, though. Perhaps I'm not doing it right... your instructions a pretty brief there.

Thanks for all your help. I'll write back in the evening with additional results / comments.

I have written a much simpler remaster script. Does a much better job in a slightly different way. I will add it to the suite after further testing on other pups, namely quirky, lighthouse, fatdog etc.

Stemsee:


Running this seemed to effect the USB I was booting from. I'm not sure why but I had 3 distro's on a USB using ISObooter and now the Vivid (which I used with the Remastering Suite) no longer completes its boot process.

Anyway, this is all a part of testing so it's no big deal to me. I just wanted to let you know that it seems something isn't quite right. I wish that I could help pinpoint the issue....

Best,

couldnt you just have made this as a .sh file upload instead of an SFS? Im not sure what to do with this, ill try to click on it and press Yes to load new SFS file. so far no one's remastering script has worked at all for Puppy Slacko version 5.7, Im trying this one next, but dont know if im supposed to use boot with multiple SFS files or just click on this from the puppy desktop. I dont even know how to do the former so ill try the latter......

Sorry, cynical because everything so far everyone has posted has failed and it doesnt make sense that the one built into puppy makes some sort of stupid incompatible version 3 squash when version 4 squash has been out for so long before puppy 5.7.

I hope this works so i can have a new SFS that fully copies to RAM and allows a multisession DVDs to be burned, instead of the "if all else fails" alternative, which is to attempt to find a program that works for creating a USB duplicate iso image out ofa post-setup puppy with a save file included as part of this USB exact-image. which sucks because id rather remaster and have a fresh save file that has a fully 3.9 GB free than a used one with 2.0 GB left as an installer. BRB, trying it now.....

for the love of god, can someone just make a script that forms a bootable .iso in the same way remastersys did for ubuntu uisng etc/skel/ paste and pressing one button? it cant be that hard. forget about all these options and menus, just make a script that takes whatever is placed in /tmp/root by the user and makes a bootable .iso that is identical to the .iso one downloads to get puppy in the first place, except with the user's system in its exact state, including all new programs and wine programs the user has added and all setting changes.

remastersys abandonware still works to this day on the latest versions of ubuntu and mint. someone who is a good coder should be able to do this. And why the hell would the one alrteady built into slacko 5.7.0 fail by making a squash that is a super old version 3.x ? that doesnt make any sense.

.... and slavvo 67 asked twice if option 6 is for creating the bootable .iso , no one replied to that except for the ambiguous answer that begins with "I will look into it" instead of "yes" or "no", LoL

and why are you giving it a false extension we have to delete? and after we delete the false .txt.gz extension, what do we do? right click it and change permissions to execute? should we be adding .sh?

thanks for all your efforts, im going to try a few of these and see if any works. I dont see why this is a search all over the forums just to find something that remasters a working .iso from a /tmp/root/ paste. Let alone the one that comes with 5.7 working instead of failing and creating an ultra old squash version, with the version convertor also failing to fix that. This is a cluster F

just boot into another OS, then copy your save file somewhere else, and if your USB gets screwed up, boot back in the alternative OS, drag the save file copy onto the USB folder and over-write it. thats what i do for all these screw ups and system destroyers.
