Thanks don and to all.
I have to appologize i couldn't respond. I am busy now with refining the grub4dosconfig.
You know I am working on regarding easy setup of Puppy in 7 area.
  1. Boot up menu
  2. Direct desktop
  3. Country setup
  4. Frugal installer for easy installation
  5. Grub4Dosconfig for easy setup the boot loader
  6. Winfonts for providing swap space for Windows dualboot PC.
  7. Pupsaveconfig

Former 6 is getting success. And the last is this pupsaveconfig.
I am comming back after a while.

Shinobar, I just wanted to give a big *thumbs up* to you, great work!
These are all very important little features!

I think the save file creation should get a major improvement, maybe it is possible to stay in the X system while doing it. Having the text menus looks so very dangerous and outfashioned Very Happy. What were the arguments to create it at the end of the first session and not right in the beginning, e.g same time as the country wizard?

kind regards
emil

Subject description: i am back but wait more...
 

Hi all, i am back!

Attached at the top post pupsaveconfig-1.6.1.pet, still a mock up sample.
It does not yet reflect our discussion here on the password.
It is only for indicating that i am back to this project.
It has a help file at '/usr/share/doc/help/C/pupsaveconfig.txt', but you need pman, recent Puppy has, installed on your puppy.

To see the mock up, on the virtual terminal, type:
Code:
pupsaveconfig2 --debug


EDIT: was mistake. Please wait maybe more one week before next test release.

PostPosted: Wed 15 Dec 2010, 03:42    Post subject: pupsaveconfig-1.9.2
Subject description: Need you test and help
 

Working model is now available!
Download pupsaveconfig-1.9.2.pet from here.
Install on any Puppy-4.x/5.x running with RAM only mode.
Need you test and help towards the version 2.

Find 'PupSaveConfig' menu under 'Utility'.
Or from terminal, type 'pupsaveconfig' (not 'pupsaveconfig2').
Or automatically launches at shutdown.
(Though we are intend to launch it automatically at the first boot up.)



pupsaveconfig-1.9.2 adds the features:
  • GUI for configuring the savefile
  • Offer copying the main sfs to HDD at Live CD boot
  • Offer swap file for small RAM PC
  • Choice saving session or not for the frugal install on flash(PUPMODE=13)... You need to select '0' for periodical save interval.
  • Remove CD at poweroff. But does not at reboot.

Memorandum:
  • Warning on password and keyboard layout issue, but no check with input phrase
  • Does not support 'save to floppy' (does it work in recent Puppy?)
  • Does not support 'Save to entire partition' (It is buggy and not recommended)
  • Does not treat PSAVEMARK (Do you need?)
  • Swap file is taken on internal HDD regardless it can be flash device(SSD) nor external (real) HDD.

Tanks, emil.

BTW, to make the choice save session or no, the Puppy need frugal installed on flash(PUPMODE=13).
You need to choose the periodic saving to '0'.



PS: As for saving session back to the Live CD, you are always asked to save the session or not at the shutdown.

Looking great so far on Puppeee.

I'm wondering, is there a reason you didn't include ext4 support?

I don't know why but Barry doesn't.
See the comment in rc.shutdown.
Code:
#100401 choose ext2/3/4 for pupsave file. 100410 offer ext2/3 only.

You can try it with manually typing 'ext4' in the 'File type' combobox.

Weird. I'll have to add it back in from an older copy.

Thanks for making this.

just a quick question...

are you planning to allow users to choose the following settings, before a savefile is created:

1. choose to enable the 'save session or not' dialog at shutdown, after a save file has been created..

2. choose to make IDE frugal installs not save in real-time..
(make IDE installs behave like USB, only [ask to] save at shutdown...)

I will almost certainly be using this, even if these features are not planned at any time...

Good work once again!

1. pupsaveconfig-1.9.2 already supports. Choose the periodic saving to '0'.
2. pupsaveconfig will not. Rewrite the boot option 'pmedia=atahd' to 'pmedia=ataflash'.
