You might be asking won't a save file do the same thing.

Maybe except for the firewall settings.

I do not know of any other way to get the firewall to come up automatically.

Once you have puppy linux setup with your internet, firewall, audio & graphics settings; you will need to remaster a puppy live cd.





Goto menu,Setup, Remaster Puppy live-CD.





When it askes you about the tmp root, clock okay. When it askes you about customizing the ect directory, simply click no.

When it askes you about burning a cd, answer no. At the next prompt on making a iso answer yes.





Download ram2sfs.gz to /root/my-applications/bin/

Rename it to ram2sfs and make sure it's permissions is set to execute.

Now goto /root/my-applications/bin/. Right click the folder, click Window, Terminal Here.

At the terminal type ./ram2sfs

The computer is makeing a sfs file from your ram.

When it is done making a sfs file, copy it to the puppylivecdbuild folder that the Remaster Puppy live-CD made.

Now restart Remaster live-CD. It will make a brand new puppy linux iso using your internet, firewall, audio & graphic settings.

Nice, but which version of Puppy are you using? They don't all come with Remaster Puppy live-CD built in.

I forsee a few probs with this... I would not skip the tmp/root screen until verifying that what is in root got transferred to tmp/root. My own remastering experiences indicate THERE ARE differences. tmp/etc is a bit different, but if you change printer settings for example, you might want to check for differences in /etc and /tmp/etc. Again, my own experiences indicate a simple checkup is well-founded.

BTW clean-up your spelling. Wink

A squinty-eyed peek at pix #2 looks like Xenial_64 sfs of some type.

Really a nice tool. Remasterx does it faster. Of course the better you choose your settings the better is the result. Prepare it before, don't do it on the fly..
Is there a pet ? hum i suppose it exists.
How-to generally has been translated by Puppy Linux ambassadors in various countries (Vicmz ? for Spanish).
It works with Precise Puppies. With Tahrpup & sons , i don't know,
Of course remasterize Puppies only after some months of use.. Trim the fat using treesize. If you don't have 3D or bluetooth at home, remove huge included Libs.
Lassar, for fast remaster as you suggest, remasterx will be enough (and faster).

Hi All,

I've now have my puppy configured in my way. Yes only in RAM for certain security paranoiac reasons Smile

Now how can I make my Puppy to be cloned 1:1 to flash drive and sent away to secured haven Smile My meaning is when the electrical blackout will strike and IF my UPS will die I can retrieve my puppy from security heaven and continue exactly from where I cloned?

Thank you in advance for a great guides and pointers!

Hello GTA.

If you're cornered, really in a jam, one desperate way of doing it would
be to find on your hard drive an ext2, 3 or 4 partition with lots of room on
it. Open a console there and type
Code:
zip -9ry -dd My-Pup.zip /initrd/*
Please note: expect it will take "forever".
-9 means maximum compression
r means pick-up all directories recursively
y means pick-up all symlinks as symlinks
-dd give you a dotted line to look at while waiting for the process to end!

That will create a straight back-up, but you cannot use it to reconstruct
your Pup as it is now -- or maybe if you are a Puppy expert, AND with
a lot of head-scratching.

~~~~~~~~~~~

An intelligent and relaxed way is to jot down the answers to the following
questions on a piece of paper, so you can inform the various fields of the
remastering program RemasterX (see link above) and use it to clone
your Pup:

Breed and version of Puppy

Summary of the hardware (PC) it is running on?

Where do you wish to save it? DVD, USB, harddrive?

For what purpose:
share with friends? just a personal back-up? re-bootable iso?

Do you have the iso for that Pup? Or you burned it on a CD/DVD? (In
which case: insert it on the plate already.)

Does your Pup have a zdrv_xxx.sfs archive in its directory?

How large is your current pupsave? (This to come up with a ball-park
figure of the resulting size -- and find a partition or thumb drive that has
enough room on it to store the interim files and the resulting iso.)

~~~~~~~~~~~

RemasterX does not need the answers to all of the above questions, but
we do, if you really want us to help you. TIA.

~~~~~~~~~~~

Also, nic007's remaster utilities (he grouped them in what he calls a
"RemasterPup Suite") are prettty good for this. You'll find his Suite at:
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=958779&sort=lastpost#958779
First read his main info panel with a rested head, then follow the
prompts, and remastering your Pup should be a breeze.

IHTH

Hi,

I'm running latest XenialPup64 7.5 on my NUC and I've made ISO to be bootable thru RuFus. I've ran once into ram and then flashdrive was unmounted and forgot away and puppy configured further.

I'm interested in my personal backup on a removable flash drive so apparently .sfs file has to be generated to that drive which will be sent to the security heaven Smile ... will that be as snapshot for current running configuration?

Also what type of settings/files could be in a bad need to be noted and re-checked after reveal process?

i read the german lazypupy anti beweireucherung txt:


In my humble opinion the 'no user input' isn't achieved as long as all the changes made by a user didn't make it into the remaster, without to have stuff in the new remaster that should not be included.

That means e.g. for a DE user, booting, changing to DE language, installing programs, setting up the Puppy, setting up the installed programs etc.pp., doing a remaster.

It always returns a remastered Puppy that boots into EN, annoys again with the first settings popup and the welcome splash - with all settings made to the programs being lost.

Or it returns a Puppy that will work only (more or less) on the machine where it was customized for.



that means puppy platform NO HOPE? for getting he copy of own puppy

there fore all puppies so same looking?
i thought i s fashion
but seems is impossible to change design of architekt of puppy matrix world o

there in remaster pårogram he talks to us...let me know if u want it different

but no adress where to send the letter....



like in movie matrix
