You might need to look into this Fred in case someone gets system with one of these NVME drives:

Thanks wiak, it looks like nvme is already built in the Ubuntu kernel, but I can't test if it actually works.
So need to wait for a report from someone using NVME drive ...

You might be interested in my attempt to convert your gifenc-yad bash/yad script to gifenc-iup.lua IUP/Lua script - just as a practice exemplar. I didn't have time to complete it today but the main GUI is basically done. You can see the code and results here:

http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=988551#988551

Note, the version I am 'copying' currently is the one before your recent gifenc-yad upgrade, which I only just noticed... I have the older one on my system., but of course I could add a video file open button too, though first I just want to get the basic one working!

Please find a working translation of an early version of fredx181's gifenc-yad into IUP/Lua as an exemplar for developers here:

Hope you don't mind Fred:

Turns out I couldn't resist make a gifenc-sel iuplua translation because I feel that that yad-like structure is a particularly simple but useful pattern for others to copy, for iuplua code too, for other simple GUI frontend utility apps.

http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=988877#988877

Next I'm going to show the iuplua pattern to produce same kind of bash/gtkdialog-created GUI dialog as I use in makepup, since that is another common and very useful dialog pattern. I won't be making a complete makepup copy though (just showing the dialog skeleton), since lots of sed commands in makepup and were I wanting a proper functional translation in iuplua I'd prefer anyway to use regular expression swaps directly in Lua itself (rather than external os.execute calls to sed).

I start fresh bionicdog with new save folder then upgrade with apt update, on synaptic check all upgrade and install, then RemasterDog. I use this squashfs file for another save folder on another machine, delete old squashfs, but it seems not upgraded. Whats wrong with my configuration.

It could be that the save folder on the other machine contains old information/configuration from the package manager (dpkg).
So, in that situation, the upgrades are in the new squashfs, but dpkg "thinks" they are not.
The solution (recommended) is then to delete the changes (start fresh on the other machine) and you'll probably see that the upgrades are done.
(or if you really want to keep the old save for some reason, delete the 'var' folder inside, that's where dpkg stores the configuration, although I wouldn't recommend, things can become messy)
I just tested making remaster with Remasterdog (and deleted save folder) and the upgrades are included.

This is about Bionicdog, right ? (I ask because you posted in Xenialdog thread)

Yes, this is bionicdog, and I agree that my save folder contain old configuration. Are there any solution to scan installed modules or apps to match apt installed list?

Maybe you can explain better what you want to accomplish and I'll try to answer, but in general I'd say:
After remaster, start with fresh save !

On puppy linux when updating system, i just copy all new sfs files, vmlinuz and initrd, remining old save folder. When first boot, system detect an update and clean old save files and configuration, but keep custom old installed apps and configuration. I wonder if BionicDog can do something like this

Ah, yes, I think I see what you mean, I once did update a Puppy(new ISO release) and the old savefile got converted accordingly, worked very well.
No, such thing is not possible with the 'Dog' distro's.

For now I'm happy with save folder and upgrade all packages, maybe save folder is quicker than compressed file. I'm not sure how frugal install realy works, is it checking save folder first or vice versa

The files in the save folder will overwrite any files with same name that exist in any .squashfs modules loaded at boot.
(hopefully this answers your question, I may have misunderstood it)

From question here:

In Dog, It detected eth0, I could access the net.
Then disconnected the wire, set-up wifi and connected.
Now when again I wish to return to eth0, there is no wizard or tool for eth (SNS rocks in puppy).
It tries to connect to eth but fails.


Hi d_vineet,

From Network tray Icon > Setup networking:
If connected to wireless, then click "Stop Wi-Fi", it should connect to wired connection again.
