And the change suffix option probably only works in older pups... (pre woof pups, older than 4.31) ..

Glad you like woofy Very Happy


Hi sc0ttman

Just "discovered" Woofy....

Trying to do a remaster of Slacko5.6 but as previously reported the "add an sfs suffix" doesn't work as although the sfs is renamed, the initrd isn't changed to match so the sfs cannot be found on bootup.

It would be great if this could be fixed.....

Woofy works great otherwise.

Cheers

Hi sc0ttman

Just to record that I was able to use Edit-Initrdgz-1.4.pet from
http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=72842
to amend the initrd.gz to how I wanted things named

then used woofy with no sfs suffix but amended the iso contents just before creation to overwrite the initrd.gz and to rename the puppy sfs.

I also wanted the sfs to be xz compressed so I added -comp xz to the relevant mksquashfs lines in woofy.

All worked great to create my first ever iso - LxPup-13.10-1 - see http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=89270

Cheers
peebee

Nice, glad you got it to work... The remaster looks very nice.. Glad woofy still works with recent pups!! It's been a while since I made it, and i made it for pre-woof pups really...

BTW, if you tick the 'Edit boot options' checkbox at the bottom before you start, Woofy will open up the initrd.gz for you, and let you edit the init script, before moving on... (If i remember correctly!!) ..

Also.. If someone can give me the code I need to check whether or not xz compressed SFS files are supported on the 'host' system, then I will add that code to Woofy.. As my pup is old (no xz sfs), I don't know what the code would be...

Also also... I am thinking of supporting the 'builtins' feature of newer pups, so you can more precisely and reliably remove packages from the new ISO... but only if anyone actually wants it...

This would be a great inclusion.

'which xz' != ""

????

look in /usr/lib/xarchive/wrappers/tar-wrap.sh

I know there is a different (more convoluted) test in the current remasterpup script but it just occurred to me that this one is foolproof and fast.

Code:
. /etc/modules/DOTconfig*
echo $CONFIG_SQUASHFS_XZ


If its set "y" will be returned. Test it out.

Another bug report. defaults-chooser doesn't work in Woofy 0.91 on Upup Raring 3992.

System in question, if the hardware matters, is an ASUS EeePC 1000HEB with a 64gb SSD and 2gb total RAM as the only upgrades.

Defaults Chooser doesn't seem to work at all.

I have tested this in several puppies with the same results.

By the way: I'm currently working on a Woofy 0.91 based Application called Puppy ISO Builder with lots of improvements and extended functions.

Here is what I have already included and done:

# 2014-02-18
# Created a RoxApp out of 'Woofy'
# 2014-02-19
# Renamed 'Woofy' to 'Puppy ISO Builder'
# Disabled updating 'Woofy' for the remastered ISO
# Refined the GUI to fit to RSHs LazY Puppy 3 Application GUI Design
# Added some nice Icons to Application and GUI
# 2014-02-20
# Removed the 'suffix' Option --> see 2014-02-21
# Added Localization Files for DE, EN (still using Zigbert's Method)
# Added Function to save Settings
# 2014-02-21
# Added Functions to create a full featured and renamed new Puppy Linux OS, initrd.gz is changed automatically in background;
# Info added to 'DISTRO_SPECS' about using 'Puppy ISO Builder' and mentioning it as the 'LazY Puppy "Woofy" Fork'
# Disabled some Info GUIs to decrease needed Mouse clicks
# Disabled Option to remove the Directory of Packages to install
# Disabled Start Information GUI (don't want to click on 'OK' Button)
# Save Settings refined to keep Settings related to the used ISO
# Added Functions to disable 'Welcome' & 'PersonalSettings' GUI PopUp
# Update Function to switch the Icon Theme, it keeps the 'close-box' now and creates also 16 Pixel sized Icons
# Added Function to mount automatically Drives of ISO and Packages
# 2014-02-22
# Automatically removing of all temporarily created Files, except the new created ISO File
# Added 2nd Path for packages to install
# Added Function for Files to copy into the ISO which to be created
# Some more translations from EN to DE has been done
# Variable '${obTheme}' was not submitted to function 'set_themes', now done

Some more work still needs to be done...

I seem to be experiencing this same situation.Has anyone done any tweaks or updates past woofy 0.91 ? Thanks

Update: On starting over with a new "custom puppy.iso" as my first was apparently knackered,woofy 0.91 worked a treat on lucid puppy 5.2.Well done sc0ttman.Thank you.

Hello sc0ttman,

I consistently (i.e. I retried) experience some issues/bugs with Woofy 0.91 running fresh on a fresh Retro 5.7.1

When I only choose to delete apps from a fresh retro 5.7.1 iso, I experience:

During the process:
Opera browser is not in the delete choice list

After successfull process:
Major:
If I click on .txt file, I now get:
Code:
Executable '/root/Choices/MIME-types/text_plain' is world-writeable! Refusing to run. Please change the permissions now (this problem may have been caused by a bug in earlier versions of the filer).

Having (non-symlink) run actions world-writeable means that other people who use your computer can replace your run actions with malicious versions.

If you trust everyone who could write to these files then you needn't worry. Otherwise, you should check, or even just delete, all the existing run actions.


I suspect it comes from the lines in the delete files log:
Code:
/sfs-base/usr/sbin/chooselocale
/sfs-base/usr/sbin/chooselocale-OLD
/sfs-base/usr/share/applications/Chooselocale-country-localisation.desktop


Medium
Although I ask to delete certain apps like AbiWord, Gnumeric, etc.
I do see that when I burn and look at the created iso, remaining files stays (with only 3Mb difference against fresh iso, I was very suspicious)

low
Although, I deleted entries such as urxvt and e3 console, their menu still stay in the menu list.

Thanks.
