Since we went 'unlimited', some 2½ years ago, d/l speed is actually darned good. Upload speed, however, is a whole 'nother 'ball-game'.....

Example; I d/l'ed Bionic's .iso in around 8-10 seconds. But if I upload, say, a 5 MB file to MediaFire or Google Drive, it'll take 40-50 seconds once the transfer commences. I know 'net traffic tends to be heavily biased toward d/ls as opposed to u/ls, but the difference there is rather noticeable, don't ya think??
Our download:upload is 16:1, I think not atypical. Since we're not 'cloud' people we really don't notice and coming from the acoustic modem stone age an honest 16 Mbps download speed still makes me smile Very Happy

normally, backing up most of my Pups, which on average have a 50-60% full 6 GB save-file, takes around 3-4 mins, tops. For some reason, backing up Bionic's directory always seems to take the best part of an hour.....but there's exactly the same stuff installed.... Rolling Eyes

That does seem excessive! I'd be looking to see what's in that directory, maybe use Gdmap from the filesystem menu to do a thorough analysis. BTW how are you backing it up?

Simple copy'n'paste, as I've always done. If in its own partition, I copy the contents of the partition; if in a sub-directory, I copy the contents of the directory. Never used any backup tools, as such; never found there to be any need. Unless of course the new Woof-CE build-system now no longer really supports doing this.....or is this a Canonical 'thing', as opposed to a general Linux 'thing'?? Laughing

Yeah; sounds about right (I guess). Your d/l speed is around the same as ours; varies between 15-18 MBps, depending on the day of the week, time of day, the time of year.....etc., etc. I'm more than happy with those kinds of figures, since about the most intensive thing I normally do online is watch NetFlix (which runs quite happily).

Subject description: Partitions and/or Savefiles
 

G'day Mike W.,

I think you could try some of Puppy's back-up packages - I've had little trouble with these for a few years now.

For frugals:
I've found a very efficient save-file back-up package in the Utility menu ("Pupsave Backup").
The appended screenshots show how I use it, now on a very frequent basis.
Two compressions are offered if compression is chosen for the back-up.
The back-up name includes the Frugal's full name, date and time created (last screenshot) so several back-ups of the same Pup can be sorted quickly to find the latest or to delete the earlier ones.
I store these back-ups in a dedicated directory on a data partition.

For partitions:
I use another Puppy back-up ("Puppy Backup" in the menu shot) to regularly back-up (mirror) my data partitions, my frugals' partitions, and my boot partition to a 1TB USB drive.

Hi, David.

I take your point, and, er, appreciate what you're saying.

One of the main reasons I back-up the way I do is because it's quicker. I'm not denigrating the effort the writers of these tools have put in to get them to look (and work) correctly. But you must admit, they're really for beginners to Puppy.....to make it as easy as possible for them. And Pup's 'Utility' section does indeed look very professional these days; all credit to everyone involved!

I'm essentially using the mechanism behind the tool, I guess.....in very much the same way as those of us who've been with Puppy for a while often use the 'quick'n'dirty' method for setting up new Pups. We know what we're doing, and just do it.....whereas it'd take longer to explain to a beginner how to do this than it would to let them use the PUI in the first place (which was put together for just this purpose, of course.) Smile

I've often considered putting together my own YAD-based GUI 'front-end' for my back-ups.....just to give me some eye-candy while the process is going on in the background!!

I may have a look at these tools, and try them out. I'll certainly have a look at the scripts, now.


Mike. Wink

Subject description: for adrive Builders in QC (remasterize pupsave to adrive)
 

The .sfs in this iso are as follows:

adrv contains the web browser and can be replaced ##

fdrv contains a selection of firmware **
zdrv contains the kernel in association with vmlinuz
ydrv adds extra right-click options and is optional
## the light web browser can be replaced by a more heavyweight browser such as
Chromium or Firefox - see the forum for details

** To obtain a more comprehensive set of firmware download the latest sfs from:
http://www.fishprogs.software/puppy/firmware-sfs/
and rename it to the same fdrv name Idea

to compress save file to Adrive, help Musher0 He needs testers. PeeBee said, That is ok. Do It Yourself !
If i had a question to ask about creating Adrive, where could i ask to get an answer. ASRI EDU should have been the person who knows, but he left to install Primtux (Debian) in french schools.

Why soccer players do not unflate the ball at the end of the match ? because they have enough place to store it as it is. And who would blow in the balloon, at reboot.. Question Don't loose energy for useless process..
inflate deflate = compress uncompress ((air or blanks)
debate about how to remasterize, or not.

I have a script that uses 'quit' in the yad menu to close the tray menu, but that shuts the system down abruptly on upupbb.

Also bash 4.4.19(1) does not find all exported functions, at least from that script.

Also some yad dialogues cannot be resized or maximised, at times, same scripts in FD or BD worked fine.

My apologies peebee, I was using the upupbb variant by csipez, I thought it was a remaster of your upupbb, but it uses bash 4.4.19(1) so probably built from scratch. I wil post in that thread.

Bash in upupbb is indeed identifying as 4.4.19(1) at runtime even though the ubb .deb is called 4.4.18 - absolutely no idea why!!! Ubuntu naming and versions are a complete mystery!!!

I posted a link here that explains it a bit more:
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=924139#924139
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=941594#941594

Though I just open the savefile or folder and drag it to /root/new, then do mksquashfs new adrv_distroname.sfs or similar.

It seems to me that after going to the bash ftp archive http://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/bash/ one sees bash 4.4.18 and then 4.5-alpha, so it seems they have packaged a nightly build in 4.4.18 ... either human error or a script error. How else to explain it other than sabotage!!

The shutdown error must be kernel config related. The 4.4.19(1)bash related problems are due to the fact that they are shipping a version that was not ready for shipping. In view of that it would be better to install 4.4.17 unless the real 4.4.18 can be found. But this assumes those bugs are not in those other versions.

EDIT: BionicDog has the same bash version but the exported functions are always found therefore the problem lies somewhere else within BionicPup!

About adrive; ctc Musher0 he needs helpers (a control for his process)
Change pupsave to compressed adrive is useless in my opinion, you just have to increase pupsave..
If compressed files take less place stored somewhere, as an evidence they retrieve their size once uncompressed...
Compressor has worked to compresse and uncompress. Is that clever ?
