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"....

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.

I've made a 64bit Slacko compatible 4.9.94 kernel via Puppy kernel-kit, with the cutdown firmware option. Is Spectre/Meltdown mitigated.
Adding needed firmware to (or using another) fdrv will be helpful. Uses performance cpu governor by default (max speed).
Have swapped it into Slacko64 6.9.9.9 and LxpupSc64 18.03. Works ok in both. As usual, use at own risk.

Thanks to ally for mirroring.

Hello, peebee, mikeslr and all.

It used to be (around the time of jrb's Puppy 4.12 / 4.21) that Puppy
would load automatically any sfs with its version number in it. (E.g.
something like openoffice_4.12.sfs, gimp_4.12.sfs, etc.) Has that capacity
been removed from the init in new Puppies?

(This is a real question, not a rhetorical one: if that capacity is still there,
it could be put to good use. Also, if this capacity is still present, combining
the fdrv with the zdrv would not be necessary.)

In any case, one could still load this fdrv sfs through sfs_load, no?

BFN.

AFAIK - yes.

Info on 4.9.94 64bit kernel 4 posts up, as I should have done it at first.
