I should not have answered. The Devs of FatDog and
rcrsn51 are more apt to help you out.

You need to make a reference to where the save file are
in the boot code. It looks like this


title fatdog FD2
find --set-root --ignore-floppies --ignore-cd /FD2/initrd
kernel /FD2/vmlinuz psubdir=FD2 savefile=direct:device:sda2:/FD2/fd64save.ext3
initrd /FD2/initrd

So you need to specify where the savefile is.

instead of psubdir=FD2 savefile=direct:device:sda2:/FD2/fd64save.ext3
you need the way to secure that it finds it on your USB so it knows
about where to look for it.

Those active in the thread that use usb can instruct you or use the search
link in my signature and look for Fatdog and usb and save-file

The savefile is in root of sda2.

This looks OK. But go to Control Panel > Utilities and run the Savefile Argument Builder.

Just out of curiosity, how is the working version of the savefile argument different from your original version?

The new argument uses UUID instead of sda2.

Since you are using a flash drive, should this not have been sdb2? Or does your machine not have a hard drive?

Is there a PET out there for Figaro’s password Manager? My attempts to download and install the source code have been fruitless to say the least! Embarassed

Running Fatdog601 -- Firefox version -- with a 512MB ext4 save file in sda3, but do not see a "Resize save file" option. I really want to add 1GB of space to my save file, but do not understand how to do it with this system.

I"ve read the manpages and the FAQ, but afraid I either missed the easy version or did not understand.

Help?

Is there a way to PREVENT Fatdog from saving the session? I tried adding the following code which I found here on the board some time ago to the rc.shutdown script. It works fine with Slacko and Lucid Puppy but Fatdog doesn't seem to like it.
Code:
dialog --timeout 10 --yesno 'Save this session?
(auto save in 10 seconds...)' 0 0 >/dev/console
  if [ $? -eq 1 ];then
   echo "Session saving cancelled" >/dev/console
  else
   echo "Saving session to $SAVEFILE (${SAVEPART})..." >/dev/console
   /usr/sbin/snapmergepuppy /initrd/pup_ro1 /initrd/pup_rw
  fi

Control panel/fatdog64 savefile tool.

Note:
You can not use the savefile tool while savefile is in use.
You will have to run fatdog64 with the pfix=ram option.

The Fatdog version of this option is "savefile=none".

gtkdialog-0.8.2 for FD64.

Rename /usr/bin/gtkdialog to /usr/bin/gtkdialog-old just for safekeeping then install:

Try this: http://www.smokey01.com/software/Fatdog64-600/fpm2-fd64-0.79.pet

I haven't really tested it but it worked when I clicked on the binary.

Cheers.

FD64 contains the driver for a Cohiba/aka you-name-it/ ...and Netgear wg111 - apparently, although it's a struggle to get it staying alight. Some claims on the InterWeb that Netgear doesn't/didn't do a 64bit driver, but those comments may refer to the devil's OS. Whatever, cannot get this dongle to run in Mint, so would appreciate some guidance from those who actually know what they're doing, please, together with a raw (not .raw) driver!
