... Frugal Method


Question:
I'm trying to install a large program and getting /dev/ full (out of space);
my guess is this means the ram drive (4gb) is maxed, as the installation is specified 'outside' the 'sfs';
is there a proper way to install this large program?

Why not tell us the name of this "large program?" Confused

Your "large program" may already be available as a .sfs file, which I believe is a way to run the program without installing it. I've never used a .sfs file so you'll have to wait until someone who knows comes along.

Finally, it would help if you told us more about your system. For instance, how large is your Save file? How much RAM is in the computer?

How does one create an SFS, of a 'large program', that cannot be installed without receiving /dev/ full (out of space)?

Ref: How To Make SFS Package

OS: Wheezy 3.5.2.8, no-PAE

Installation: Frugal (sda1)

Games: sdb1 /mnt/sdb1/games/regnum

Program: Regnum - http://www.championsofregnum.com/?l=1&sec=6

SFS available: No

Swap file: 4GB

Memory: 8GB

I downloaded the installer and got the same error when I tried to install program.

I think you may be right that it is maxing out the ram disk Puppy uses with operation of a frugal install.

With the programs installer being 1.2GB. I am sure it is a compressed file. Probably more like 4 to 5 times that size when uncompressed.
I have 2GB of memory and the error happened at about 1/2 the install process.

For programs this big, will probably need to have Puppy as a full install on its own partition.

Probably a good chance that if you do get it installed, there will be dependency program issues and graphics driver issues.

I would post a topic, in the forums, Games section of Additional Software.
Someone there may have some experience trying to install games of this size in Puppy frugal installs.

During installer; gets about 60% complete and then errors.

The Solution was two parts:

1.) Redirect temp files
2.) run the ROInstall_32 from within Terminal:
Code:
mkdir  /mnt/sdb1/Regnum_temp
mkdir  /mnt/sdb1/Games/Regnum

./ROinstall_32 --temp /mnt/sdb1/Regnum_temp

Installation question: /mnt/sdb1/Games/Regnum

Game works as intended.
