PostPosted: Fri 15 Jun 2018, 09:30    Post subject:  Remasterpup-Suite-2018  

Application pulled from general forum. Interested users can send a personal message for a copy.

Remasterpup-Suite-2018 released. Suite of three remastering tools, ie. Remasterpup-ISO, Remasterpup-Options and Remasterpup-Auto.
Pet package attached.

Tip: Most users will probably want to remaster the base sfs only. I recommend using Remasterpup-Options for this. Only three user input screens for choosing options and the nagging (for some) first run welcome and boot screens are suppressed in this version.[/b]

So many "remaster" scripts (over the forum), though the main issues that people have on remastering are neither achieved nor targeted! Shocked

What issues? The complaint that it is a cumbersome procedure has definitely been addressed with this suite. I mean, how much easier can one get than a completely automated script (one of the tools for base remaster included here) requiring NO user input.

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.

Sorry, though no offensive intended...

I hear what you say but this suite caters for all situations. There's a completely FULL (ISO) version with all options you need (and more), including creating an ISO and actually burning to CD and DVD. Then there is the options version for base remaster which has only three input screens. ie. choose your working area, choose your compression, choose to configure for same computer or not. And then the auto version with pre-set settings. Seriously, easier than this is hardly possible. I will stop short of actually breathing on behalf of the user though. Smile

BTW - I'm interested to know what you can't achieve with using the "full" version as ALL the options are available as far as I know.

Maybe you need to add some more info, in the first post, to fully explain what each version does.
A little more detail. Idea

Thanks for doing this!!!!!!

Agreed. Thank you. I also didn't understand but didn't want to ask...

A picture is worth a thousand words.

Well, some people can put two and two together whilst others, well I don't know. The auto version isc obviously not there to make an ISO or CD SINCE USER INPUT WOULD BE REQUIRED TO MOUNT AN ISO OR CD TO GET FILES OFF IT...but I guess some people can't grasp the obvious. Besides, the results are fairly obvious once you have actually run the different tools (which any normal new user would do to check it out). You know, instead of being hyper critical I think being more appreciative would be in order. There are not many of us who actually take time out to make new applications for Puppy. If the application is not to your liking, DON'T USE IT.

You don't need to understand what I've coded, as a user you just need to use/try out the application. If you are too dumb to use it though, don't do so.
