FrugalPup v0.10 - Puppy frugal installer.

This version is to fix the following bug:
"StickPup" is not as quiet as it should be, due to "default partition" handling introduced in v0.8.

PostPosted: Thu 24 Jan 2019, 05:39    Post subject: FrugalPup v11 & StickPup v11 - Puppy frugal installer.
Subject description: now includes "frugalpup-isoboot" and "bootentry"
 

FrugalPup v11 & StickPup v11 - Puppy frugal installer.

This version includes 2 new features:

1) An "ISO" button that executes "frugalpup-isoboot".
This creates a "$HOME/puppy_boot.iso" file that contains only grub2 configured to non-uefi boot the selected Puppy frugal install(s).
Once you burn the "$HOME/puppy_boot.iso" file to a CD/DVD, you have a CD/DVD that can boot Puppies stored on your system.
It is meant to provide an alternate boot mechanism for machines that can't boot from usb.

Note: You can do a similar thing with "frugalpup-bootfiles" ("Boot" button), i.e. produce a bootable usb stick that doesn't contain any Puppies, but boots Puppies stored on your system.

2) A CLI utility called "bootentry".
This runs the script used by both "frugalpup-bootfiles" and "frugalpup-isoboot" to generate boot entries, so it can be used to preview the entry these scripts would produce.
Simply run "bootentry -h" in a console to see it's usage help message.

Thank you so much for this software!!

I was looking for any easy way to get a UEFI boot loader installed on an internal emmc drive used as the storage on this computer.
For the uefi bios to be able to select this as a bootable drive.
Secure boot needs to be enabled.
So, the boot loader on the emmc drive needs to be a UEFI boot loader.

What I did using the FrugalPup program.
The emmc drive has two partitions.
First one a small fat32 formatted for boot files.
Second one ext4 format using rest of drive.

I already had a frugal Install of Bionicpup64 8.0 on the ext4 partition.

Started the FrugalPup program.
Selected Boot button.
Selected the partition Bionicpup was on.
Selected the parent directory.
Selected the emmc fat32 first partition as the boot partition.
Selcted uefi for boot type.

Now have a working uefi boot loader that will work with secure boot enabled.

I really like that first window, giving you choices as to what you want to do, using FrugalPup.

I was looking for a installer program a new Puppy user could use.
This is very much one of them!!

Just to let you know.
666philb has added the Stickpup program to Bionicpup64 8.0 as an update to Bionicpup64.

From the installed bugfixes update list after running Bionicpup updates.

He was testing how Bootflash worked and after I told him about the FrugalPup package.
He tried StickPup to install to USB.

Here is his post in the Bionicpup64 8.0 topic.

I have uploaded 'frugalpup_12.sfs' to http://www.mediafire.com/folder/rdyc5lgzpeij1/frugalpup.
This update includes support for SSD's, adds "pfix=trim" to the boot entry.
And adds full support for "Minimal Init Overlay v12".

PostPosted: Thu 16 May 2019, 05:47    Post subject: FrugalPup v13 & StickPup v13  

I have uploaded 'frugalpup_13.sfs' and 'frugalpup_13.pet' to http://www.mediafire.com/folder/rdyc5lgzpeij1/frugalpup.
This update fixes the support for SSD's, adds "pfix=trim" to the boot entry if it finds an SSD as the install partition or the default save partition, not just the install partition.
It also includes some code cleanup, and provides support for "Minimal Init Overlay v13".
