Much of Puppy is written as scripts using batch or script commands
This is where the power of Linux resides

Ian has kindly provided this listing of the main BASH commands
http://www.goosee.com/puppy/wikka/AzBash

Anyone up to marking those available in Ash (the Puppy shell commands)?

I think that we might promote Puppy up to the full Bash soon, since we already have it as a Unleashed/PupGet package. Probably we'll keep Ash.

m m m . . .

Downloaded and uninstalled Bash from pupget

- now I decided to have another look at it - but when I run Pupget - it is pupgone?

In other words it no longer appears in the listing . . .

Any ideas where it is and how I get it back to download it?

i don't think the Bash Unleashed package is useable as a PupGet package anyway

the Unleashed package is the bash binary file tar-gzipped in /bin

so if you install bash using the Unleashed package, it will be installed in /bin

if you have an option 2 install, this will work ... but it won't work if you are running a live cd, or from a usb drive, or an option 1 install ... because /bin is ram, and whatever you write in ram will be gone the next time you boot

it will work ok if you put bash somewhere on your hard drive and copy it to /bin every time you boot ... this is what i did ... i put something like these lines in rc.local:

cp -f /root/bash /bin
ln -sf /bin/bash /bin/sh
ls -sf /bin/busybox /bin/ash

though lately i have just been symlinking to /root/bash ... if you do this, you must symlink /bin/sh to busybox again before you shutdown Puppy, or you will lose your shell when /root is unmounted, and Puppy won't shut down cleanly ... here's the script i call from rc.local to symlink /bin/sh to /root/bash:

#!/root/bash
ln -sf /root/bash /bin/bash
ln -sf /root/bash /bin/sh
ln -sf /bin/busybox /bin/ash

this unlinks bash:

#!/root/bash
ln -sf /bin/busybox /bin/sh

i was going to make and upload a bash dotpup ... it's easy to make a package, but to setup the config files nicely like .bashrc takes time ... i think it's too dangerous to set it up so bash will automatically replace /bin/sh ... if it doesn't work right, Puppy won't boot, and you will be forced to mount the pup001 file from another distro and edit the config files to get Puppy to boot again

Yes, that's right, bash is not available in PupGet because it installs into /bin.

In Unleashed, the "createpuppy" script filters out all the "unsuitable" packages before creating /root/.packages/packages.txt.
