Hi, Mike7.

That's ok. No guilt trip, please!

I think discussing "size of browser caches" here was/is ok. It has a distant
but real link with the overall "space" created by the pupsave and the swap
file. Beyond that would be pushing it, though!

BFN.

allo Musher0 help desk, I need your zip to solve the nice and thin WOLX, Puppy from France. It kernels panick when uploading its own wolxsave.
I will feedback if your zip save me from the deroot.
"Would it be a good idea to use gzip since some pups won't support lzo or xz by default.." lzo unrecognized by Wolx
I take a break.
UEextract 2.7 decompresses lzo... moi je m'énerve un peu de ces contretemps Only french speaking citizens could understand.
Smile Smile Smile Canadian Help Desk method is sucessful
My wolx explodes again with kernel panic, but it's a different cause Crying or Very sad pupsave is empty, wolx runs in RAM, and explodes kernel panic with empty pupsave, tabernacle ! Patente à gosses! Viande à chien!

Enjoy! BFN.

Hi, nic007!

This is a thread about pupsaves and swap files, not about me! Smile

Please feel right at home in it!

BFN.

Hello all.

I bumped into this old problem again yesterday, in DPupStretch-7.0.0a1, of all Pups!!!

I realized that this thread does not offer a set of ready-made smaller pupsave files, so
here you go! (Please see attached files.)

How-to:
-- copy the file with the size you need in your Puppy's directory;

-- unzip it TWICE;

-- once that is done, replace the "puppy" mention in the file name with the name of your
pup, e.g. xenial, stretch, lupu, etc. So it will become stretchsave-12Mb.2fs, for example.
Otherwise, the Puppy won't pick it up;

-- you may wish to change the part of the file name after the hyphen to something more
meaningful, but this is optional;

-- do not touch or edit the ".2fs" part;

-- please remember that you may also need to

download,
unzip,
make executable and
run

the one-liner called gdkPixbuf.sh.zip in the OP of this thread if the icons on your desktop
or in the ROX-Filer appear jumbled

IHTH.

Hello all.

Does anyone know why this problem resurfaces every now and then? Smile

A new member was looking for the pupsave file of a xenialPup the day before
yesterday...
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=998643&sort=lastpost#998643
This inspired me to revisit the script I had written, revised by Karl Godt, and make
it as universal as possible.

Here goes. Please read the comments before copying and pasting it for your own
use or downloading the attached zip.

This saves me some typing, of course, but on your part, knowing how to use this
script instead of poking blindly around with it may also save you some troubles! Wink
Code:
#!/bin/bash
# psave-N-Xfs.sh # Console script.
# Can also be run by typing its symbolic link, psave-N-Xfs.
#
# (C) musher0, June 20, 2014. GPL3. Rev.: April 3, June 10 & July 16, 2018.
# Please see "LICENCE / LICENSE" below.
#
# Purpose: Create, in a Puppy directory, a pupsave file of any number of
# Mb's, containaing an ext2, ext3 or ext4 file system.
# For use on Puppies where the pupsave creation script seems to be defective,
# for whatever reason.
#
# Error routines by Karl_Godt. Thanks, Karl.
#
# Examples, taking xenialPup as basis:
# -- psave-N-Xfs a 300 4
# Creates a pupsave file of 300 Mb's in ext4 named xenialsave-arf.4fs
# -- psave-N-Xfs w 192 2
# Creates a pupsave file of 192 Mb's in ext2 named xenialsave-woof.4fs
#
# Please see "NOTES" below.

####
[ "$1" = "a" ] && A=arf # Choice of names
[ "$1" = "w" ] && A=woof

B="$2" # size in Mb's # Specified by the user.

C="$3" # extension type: ext2, ext3 or ext4.
# Again, specified by the user.
# Simple limits: 2, 3 or 4.
[ "$C" -lt "2" ] && C=2
[ "$C" -gt "4" ] && C=4

# Name of Pup
NOM="`awk -F'=' '$1 ~ /PREFIX/ { print $2 }' /etc/DISTRO_SPECS | cut -d\"'\" -f2`"
[ $? = 0 ] || { echo "Sorry, unable to find the name of your Puppy. Press Return to exit.";read;return 1; }

if [ ! -f "$NOM"save-"$A"."$C"fs ];then
# Creation
   dd if=/dev/zero of="$PWD"/"$NOM"save-"$A"."$C"fs bs=1M count=$B
   [ $? = 0 ] || { echo "Sorry, unable to create savefile correctly. Press Return to exit";read;return 1; }
# Formating
   mkfs.ext2 -q -m 0 -F "$PWD"/"$NOM"save-"$A"."$C"fs
   [ $? = 0 ] || { echo "Sorry, unable to create filesystem in savefile. Press Return to exit";read;return 1; }

else
     echo -e "\n\t\e[1;33mYou already have a pupsave by that name.
\t\t\tExiting.\e[0m\n"
     exit
fi

exit
####
NOTES
Once that is done, reboot.
The Puppy will pick up the save file on reboot.

However, once back on your desktop, you may see icons with question marks.
You may need to update your gtk/gdk cache with the following line:
# gdk-pixbuf-query-loaders --update-cache # (Uncomment to use.)
to regain the normal (original) appearance of the icons. Source:

Hi all.

Hopefully this is the last script I'll ever contribute trying to solve this
vexing problem.

The only thing different from the script above is that in position 1 ("$1$),
you can specify any name you wish for your pupsave file.
Quote:
Example:
Code:
psave-N-Xfs browsers 250 3
Creates a pupsave file of 250 Mb's in ext3 named
xenialsave-browsers.3fs in the Puppy's directory.
"Scarecrow" or "blableblibloblue" will do fine. But may I suggest that you
choose meaningful names describing what you intend to do mostly with
the pupsave file: names such as "PersFin" (for "Personal Finances") or
"wine" (if this pupsave will contain many wine programs), or
"GnumTempl" (if you intend to use the pupsave file mostly for "Gnumeric
templates").

I'm sure you are already doing this. Focused names are easier to
remember. Only reservation: not use spaces in the pupsave file name.

BFN.
