If its big enough, can we remaster without unnecessary driver? So, for single machine (or same type machines), can has a little library after remastering?
Just an idea.

Puppy can use a 'zdrv' SFS file. This file contains only the drivers.
You can then use the 'zdrv_cutr' tool to remove drivers which are not loaded.

Then zdrv_cutr is here: http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=51552

Also, here is another remaster tool you can use, called Woofy, it is simpler than RemasterPup: http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=57037

Here's a crazy idea:

Do the remaster and include everything you think you may or may not want in a BIG.sfs

Once the remaster is done create a directory tree that looks just like the BIG.sfs except that all the actual things are symbolic links to:

/mnt/home/BIGSFS/whereitis/whatitis

You can quite do this with everything because the mount command is needed to get the BIG.sfs mounted.

This will result in a puppy that runs very slowly but now comes the part that I thought of first.

Use "find" to discover what files you really accessed in the last few days and replace the symbolic links with the actual files. This could be a script that does this automatically.

With a few more steps, you could have a puppy with only the files you actually use. All the rest could still be included in the BIG.sfs if you want to be able to change your mind.

I like this crazy think. I'll try. It will reduce more file that not use. But, can we sure that all file has accessed flag? About stability, I think it will crash.
But, that just good crazy idea.

Sub_title: Ignore full session
 

"save" "no save" at shutdown Ignore full session
Pet pupsaveconfig 2.2. available somewhere
That permits you to make a lot of tries and not to register them.
Reboot and run again only the success things
This time, save the session.
You earn an incredible amount of space on your personal storage.

You could take a look at Lazy Puppy, it is based on the idea of just loading an sfs when you need it.

Most of the sfs files are already there. Cool
