Subject description: BackUp Utility "B2T" and "B2U" for Puppy Linux Frugal Installs
 

Redacted

Exclamation Idea Arrow
...
... BackUp Utility "B2T" for Puppy Linux Frugal Installs. Razz Very Happy

... BackUp Utility "B2U" direct running (No Main_Selection_GUI) backup (based on "B2T") Shocked
...
UPDATE 20-06-14
including all previous mods / upgrades / cleanups
plus Informative notes tacked to end of terminal display.

.
"B2T" our Simple Puppy Backup for saveDATA :
Exclamation PUPSTATE controls the program Exclamation
Exclamation B2T will '.tar.gz' backup both saveFOLDER and saveFILE.4fs Exclamation
Exclamation for Official Puppy Frugal Systems
Exclamation
.
Our Design Philosphy is: .
(1) simpler coding,
(2) readable coding,
(3) modifiable coding.

.
Produces a '.tar.gz' output file.
Very Standard ... just 'tar' 'gzip'.

Features for Puppy Linux Backup :
(1) "B2T" creates backup filename with 'y-m-d-s'
. . . date-time-seconds stamp.
(2) "B2T" automatically selects fast compression via ".tar.gz".
(3) "B2T" runs OK on Official Puppy 32/64-bit Frugal SaveFOLDER installs
... in EXT2/3/4 drives and Flash-Drives.
(4) "B2T" runs OK on Official Puppy 32/64-bit Frugal SaveFILE.4fs installs
... in EXT2/3/4 drives and Flash-Drives.
(5) "B2T" is controlled by the system "/etc/rc.d/PUPSTATE" file.
(6) "B2T" handles any "home" location
... by using "/etc/rc.d/PUPSTATE" data.
(7) "B2T" has internal 'flags' to control the dialog progress splash
which the user can easily alter.

.
Our script has been tested successfuly
on our running "Official" Puppy Frugal Systems :

In Barry Kauler's blog,[url] https://www.bkhome.org/ [/url]
he shows the merits of Frugal Installs.
*** 32 bit systems ***
* Slacko 632
* Xenial 708
* Tahr-606
* UpupBB-19.03 +10, +12, +14, +16, +17, +18 , +19, +20, +21
* Quirky April-7 32bit
* LXpup 32bit
DavidS45 has tested 'OK' on his 64bit system.



Addendum: ( via a excellent tip from Davids45 ):
We keep our developing scripts on the main hard-drive.
We keep our production scripts inside of the /etc/rc.d/ folder.
We link our /etc/rc/d/ scripts into the "application" subdir,
which places them in the "pup-main-menu".
We drag-n-drop from "application" subdir to screen-w-icon.
Running scripts can be kept on hard-drive media OK
and shared among several Puppy Linux OS installs.[/b]
Our working systems run-on-and-across
'M$XP ntfs' and 'Linux' formatted hard-drives
and 'Flash-Drives' (Ext2,3,4),

Addendum:
GTKdialog version: 'GTK2_RC_Files='/root/.gtkrc-2.0
The gtkdialog flags located at top of "Main_Splash" .
User should change 'flags' by the examples.
We have pre-set the flags for llDialogRun="1"
and lcDialogColors=''yellow/red'' .
There is a flag to default to the original HB.v.1.2 dialog code.
.
Make certain your file permissions, file type and file properties
are properly set to "execute".
We have found it easy to 'loose'
some permissions / type / properties via copy/zip.

...
Location in "/etc/rc.c" keeps our work secure and un-touchable
from any good mods/improvements that PeaBee may do in the future.
This keeps our "B2T" files backed-up with our custome system scripts.
We keep a complete basic copy of our work in our
"/initrd/mnt/dev_save/MY_/usr-share/gae_Dev_" subdir
on hard-media ... for all development/editing ,
and copy into "/etc/rc.d" via custome scripts.

G'day glene77is,

Thanks for this version of the very useful Hot-Save-Backup utililty.

I'll try running it as a link from my data partition to /etc/rc.d/ and also in several 64-bit Pups which sometimes don't include the original Hot-Save-Backup.

If all goes well, I'll make an sfs of your Backup Scipt and combine it with my all-applications-as-links sfs which I run in my Pups.

PostPosted: Thu 13 Feb 2020, 19:18    Post subject: SFS works and in 64-bit  

G'day glene77is,

I've made an sfs of your 3 Backup Script files to load them into /usr/bin/ and then an sfs of the files as links to my data partition. The original three files are kept here, every other use now will be as links back to these original files.

I also edited the .desktop file of the old hot-save backup pet to point to the new files and added that to the sfs (via another link). This adds a menu entry for the BackUP Script.

The links sfs ran well in several 32-bit Pups so I then ran it in some 64-bit Pups and had no problems creating backups of the save-files in these.

I'll add the 32-bit and 64-bit sfs to my all-apps-as-links sfs to automatically load this in each Pup I start up.

Thanks for this nice revision of a much appreciated 'old' utility.

David S.

David45,

"between Artarmon & Roseville, NSW" Laughing
Thanks. Very large world we live in.

Thank you for trying B2T.
We run it dozens of times each day.
Thank you for your work to make this neat little backup prg
into "SFS" with a "puppy menu option".
.
We followed your lead with "text of my desktop file"
and it works "just as advertised" !
.
We utilized your suggestions
to control flow and reduce system size.
Yes, we fix / update our own systems and admit the problems.
We say "Put your finger on the problem before you try to fix it !"

We keep our saveFolderName as "upupbbsave-BB19+20-0102" static.
All the saveFolderName.BKP...datetimesttamp.tar.gz files
provide a standard backup format and alphabetical order for history/restore.
.
Attached is a little txt story about my experience with BackUp Priorities.
.
Life is a real " Hoot! " if you are wide awake ! Shocked

G'day glene77is,

Thanks for the extended reply to my posts.

The menu entry (.desktop file) would be helpful for Puppy newcomers. There are already many utilities included in the various Pups that can be hard to know where they are, let alone what they do.

If it's of interest, here's the text of my desktop file - putting the B2T script in /usr/bin means the 'Exec=' line doesn't need a different path to 'normal' for me. But the old and the new backup utilities both use the same .svg icon although the linked B2T has an arrow on its icon (see attachment).

Quote:
[Desktop Entry]
Encoding=UTF-8
Name=PupBackup2Tar
Icon=/usr/share/pixmaps/puppy/copy_disk.svg
Comment=Hot backup for frugal save files
Exec=pup-Back-2-Tar
Terminal=false
Type=Application
Categories=Archiving
GenericName=PupBackup2Tar


Dragging the executable to the desktop is for those already 'in the know' but a menu entry in say, 'Utilities', increases the chances of it being found and used by 'newbies' and included by the Puppy developers in coming Pups.

Quote:
We use make good use of linking SFS files, and unlinking.
This keeps our saveFolder size down to 70 MB, or so,
which makes B2T runs rather quick.


Using symlinks for as much as I can (caches, thumbnails, profiles, Downloads, as well as program files), I get concerned/annoyed if a Puppy's savefile exceeds 5MB, so your 70MB looks big to me Shocked Very Happy .

But I only do a savefile backup every week or so if I'm not trying anything radically new in a Pup. I've found Puppy very tolerant and stable and my years-old hardware is also troublefree (so far) so I'm a bit blase about backups. The speed, ease and simplicity of the hot-save-backup utility probably adds to my possible lack of 'proper' concern.

@davids45
G'day glene77is was emphatic about SaveFolders, but in 2 of your posts it appears you have modified B2T for use with SaveFiles. Can you post your modified version or what changes you made, please.
TIA

s243a,

"We" is a literary mechanism
by which usage we reduce the egotistical "I"
( which is a grandiose presentation of 'I am my work, and it is great' ).

Use of 'We' is like wearing a 'mask' .
Use of "I" is like saying "I am great".

My 'works' are posted in the 'profile', elsewhere.
Here, 'we' only speak about this software project.

See you later.

Subject description: B2T for 'saveFILES' ?
 

Redacted: 200224

B.K. Johnson,

B2T always ran on both saveFOLDER and saveFILE.4fs.
Davids45 was very helpful in testing the B2T system
and offering excellent suggestions for our system operations.


At the First Posting,
We had not 'properly' set up the TEN saveFILE.4fs systems for testing.
So,
WHEN we had properly set up the saveFILE.4fs systems
... in each of our four actively running Puppy Linux Systems,
THEN we posted that feature "properly".

We have run B2T on our Puppy Frugal installs,
both saveFOLDER and saveFILE.4fs.
.
B2T ran OK on
Slacko, Xenial, Tahr, UpupBB (Bionic v. 10,12,14,16,18,19,20) Exclamation
And now, Quirky-April-7-32bit, and LXpup-32bit versions, all OK!



B2T Should be ready for the world, now.

HTH

PostPosted: Sat 15 Feb 2020, 18:50    Post subject: Save-folders only backing up  

G'day B. K. Johnson,

Sorry for misleading you with my sloppy wording.

I did not modify "their" ( Very Happy ) script to back-up a save-file, just added a desktop file to their script package that had been written for backing up the Frugal's save-folder.

I much prefer Puppies with flexible save-folders to the old-fashioned, rigid save-files.

Because I run most applications and other sym-linkable things from my common boot-mounted data partition, all Puppies on my computers have quite small Save-folders (~5MB average) so 'wasting' MBs with a mostly empty 512MB save-file per Puppy has no attraction.

I take it you had tried this B2T script with a save-filed Pup and it did not work? This seems to be the 'extra challenge' for the hot-save-backup to handle save-files as well as save-folders?

Thank you for testing and commenting, Davids45.

Agree with you.
Having a tool like B2T makes frequent back-ups very easy.
Extraction and Restoring from 'this mornings saveDATA'
is very convenient to use.

To respond to your interests :
We have run B2T on our Puppy Frugal installs,


both

Having comments on our work Very Happy
makes this geeky old geezer have a much nicer day.
Thanks for your interest and suggestions and queries.


Now, got to go fry some other fish !

PostPosted: Sun 12 Apr 2020, 21:26    Post subject: Updated and colourful B2T
Subject description: slowly trying on some old Pups
 

G'day glene77ls,

Just caught up with your improved B2Tar Embarassed .

While continuing in our isolation here in OZ, I'm going through my oldest Puppies partition updating these for my new Internet connection via Wifi.
I'm also adding a 'hot backup' as these were mostly from before the time of its introduction. Some have savefiles (pre-savefolder) which the early hot-backup packages sometimes had a problem with.

Some Pups were giving me an error about not enough drive space which was itself an error as there are free GB left on this partition and the Puppy savefiles also had some space. For these Pups, I then had to switch rcrsn51's very good savefile backup package that has to be done from outside the Pup (a 'cold' backup as you'd expect from a Canadian I suppose?)

Searching the forum just now to check this erroneous error with the old hot backup, I found you'd updated B2T to handle savefiles as well as folders. It's a bit colourful as well Shocked . A first run seemed to go well although the USB step was unneeded as I'm only on a hard-drive with these Pups.

I'll modify my .pet of B2T and then my .sfs for a wider testing here.

I'll report back if I hit an actual problem, otherwise post my results later.

No news is good news in these corvid times.

Stay lonely Wink Very Happy .

David S.

G'day glene77ls,
Just tried your latest in a Wheezy Frugal Pup (screenshot).
It has a save file of about 190MB which is mostly unused (screenshot).

Running from the desktop icon, I saw the first start-up dialog box/window (screenshot) but then nothing? Tried it again. Still nothing. Third time and I was still unlucky (or stupid, if you listen to my "better half").

Ran B2T in a terminal with responses:

but nothing displaying colourfully on the desktop?

I then looked in the Wheezy subfolder and found four new backups! Shocked (screenshot) Opened one in a safe place and it was the expected save file Very Happy .

So it's working but .....

I hope the terminal text helps point you to what is happening? Beats me.

Later tests with an early Slacko, Upup Raring-3.9.9.2, OVPrecise and Precise-5.7.1 which all use savefiles also made backed-up save files but displayed nothing during the creation nor at the end to say it was done.
