Taking into consideration that an fdrv.sfs is required (which peebee has also made available) and that not all Puppies are "fdrv aware", can these be used in Puppies other than LxPup?

Hi Mike

Short answer=yes. Longer answer - if fdrv is not automatically loaded by init (only likely in very old pups) then you could try explicitly loading it as an .sfs assuming that it isn't needed on the very first boot to get a basic system running.....as always in pupland - try it and see Wink

Otherwise the zdrv and fdrv would need to be "combined"....

Cheers

Thanks peebee,

Probably could have used your first suggestion, but your second method worked fine with Xenialpup64.

Ally, changing the "pfs" ending to "sfs" does, in fact, enable their contents to be viewed and perhaps used with non-Russian-built Puppies. However, I have some doubts about the later. An examination of the included files revealed several with suffixes I'm not familiar with from my dissection of other Puppies and applications.

I didn't test, nor expend the time which would have been necessary to ascertain how those files functioned within their system.
