There is a linux command called progress that can be used on pipes.


is it available for puppy ?

I can't use rpm files (too difficult), is there a dot pup with this perhaps.

The reward will be a nice script that can ghost harddisks to and from the network using puppy via samba file share.

progress seems to work in Puppy
it prints dots from the the command line

for example, this demo seems to work:

cat /dev/hdc | ./progress -m 10 > /dev/null

I'm using puppy to clone harddisks:

1. Use samba to mount a drive on the network

2. copy the harddisk to an image:
dd if=/dev/hda | progress | gzip /root/mnt/NETWORK_SVR/mount_folder/image.gz

3. copy the image to a harddisk:
dd if=/root/mnt/NETWORK_SVR/mount_folder/image.gz|progress|gunzip >/dev/hda

Ive used it successfully without the progress or gzip, am just in the process of trying the above, should work though..

Good way to clone any hard disk (eg NTFS, FAT, whatever).

Can progress display bytes copied instead of dots ?
