Hi all,

Are/is there anyone out there who uses Barry's Quirkys 8.0 & above (Xenial and/or Slaq), via 'frugal installs', and has had success doing a remaster using Barry's included 'remasterpup2' script in /usr/sbin????

I've 2 Quirky Xenial (one 8.0, the other 8.1.6) frugal installs (USB & SDcard) + 1 Quirky Slaq (8.1.6) frugal install (diff USB), and I just tried to run (in all of them) the included 'remasterpup2' script. The remasterpup2 script fails to even get going, and immediately pops up the weird message as shown below. Anyone know what could be up and/or the problem? (and, yes, the requisite ISO for each is sitting in an attached, mounted USB waiting for the vmlinuz & init to be read, but the script cannot even get started as it pops up this weird message): [note in the pic: I even installed shino's well-tested remasterX.pet, but as far as I know it won't work with init's that are not ".gz", and all of Barry's inits are "initrd.q"...so....]

Well fix it and get it approved.
Puppy is a community project as I am sure you have been told before.

I'm not sure it's defective, so much as maybe it was an oversight to include it. I haven't tried it but I think this was made to remaster Puppy linux and not Quirky.

As you may know, Quirky has a Snapshot manager under Menu --> Filesystem. It's basically a restore at a certain point and not a remaster. Still, a useful utility.

I think that you might be looking for Quirky Universal Installer under Menu --> Setup. Not really sure, though and I haven't tested it.

Quirky Werewolf (run from DVD) has a Save icon on the desktop. When clicked, one option it gives is to remaster onto a blank DVD. Of the three times I've tried to use this option, it has worked twice. It didn't work at all in one older Quirky I tried. (I can't remember which one, but I reported it at the time.) When remastering via Save fails, it seems to go through all the steps, but when the DVD pops out, nothing has been written to it.

It did this the last time but one that I tried to remaster (using the Save icon) Quirky Werewolf, however it did burn a good DVD when I tried again.

I have no idea how remastering works, but if i may make a suggestion, I'd rather it simply made a new iso in /tmp and left it up to me burn it onto a DVD (with burniso2cd or Pburn for instance.) The way it seems to work in Quirky right now, if Save fails, it doesn't seem to leave an iso anywhere. I have to Save all over again. Maybe it works and maybe it doesn't.
