I can't mount my sfs file on 216 alpha (with full installation). But with sfsinstaller i'd mounted successfully my sfs file. Thank all

Hi vanchutr; So it installed the sfs file sucessfully?
If you try UNinstalling it, please post here how well it worked.
So far I have no idea if the uninstall function works at all.

Where should the sfs files be in a full install situation? Wink

Hi Fishy; A Full-HD install of Puppy can't use SFS files directly (it won't work).

That's why I made this app., it copies the contense of the SFS file to the full install.

To use it, click: [Install SFS file] & a file chooser pops up.
So the SFS files can be anywhere when installed with my app.: sfsinstaller
After installing the SFS file, it's no longer needed, but is good for a backup.

The reason I asked is that I had openoffice.sfs in / root and when I ran your installer all the office files were opened and placed in / not something like /usr/share or whatever.

I suspect that a certain amount of Linux expertise is assumed before one meddles with something like this but with me it is like matches in the hand of a child. Laughing

Mighty odd... No one else had any install problems.
The uninstall is the main untested part of the app.

Note: SFS files made for Puppy-1 won't work for Puppy-2, & vise-versa.
Puppy-1 SFS files are based at: /usr, where as Puppy-2 is based at: /

Hi sunburnt

Had the same problem as Fishy. The app puts all the files in the / (root) of the HD. It does however create all the directories correctly, but they are empty.

Thanks

That's just too weard, the command is: cp -a (sfsMntPt) /

I can't see anything that could be bad with a simple command like that.
It should copy the dirs. & files from the SFS file to / just like in the SFS file.
I'll look at it to see if there's something obvious, but not much can go wrong.

FOUND IT (I think), files are being copied individually, so path had to be added.
This would explain why it made dir. paths but put the files in / & I've fixed it.

I don't have a full install of Puppy so I've relied on users to test this app.

Will someone with a Full-HD install please make sure it's installing correctly?

The NEW app. is above at the original file download... Terry

Hi, I just wanted to inform you that I'm having the same problem.
The directories are created but empty and the files are just copied to /.
I tried with devx_216.sfs and the installer you added to the post on the 18th (I believe the latest one.)

One thing I noticed when I ran it from the terminal is that it was giving me the message that it could not find the logs it writes to. I noticed that the 'I' in the word 'installer' of the directory is lower case and the script was looking for an upper case I. I renamed it and the message went away.
I ran it again and kept getting the below error messages constantly:

./sfsinstaller: line 99: [: missing `]'
./sfsinstaller: line 100: [: missing `]'
./sfsinstaller: line 101: [: missing `]'

I also managed to copy the below messages as they wizzed through the terminal:


cp: cannot stat `/mnt/devx_216//usr/bin/fbc': No such file or director




and then later:




./sfsinstaller: line 101: [: missing `]'
cp: cannot stat `/mnt/devx_216//usr/X11R7/lib/libXaw7.so': No such file or directory
./sfsinstaller: line 99: [: missing `]'

cp: cannot stat `/mnt/devx_216//usr/X11R7/lib/libXext.so': No such file or directory


The above list is not complete. Just what I could capture as it went by. I would have redirected the output to a file and posted it for you but if I let it go to completion it destroys my install, deleting all my mount points and stopping anything from launching. I can't even reboot.

When I click select a sfs to install I get:

./sfsinstaller: line 55: [: too many arguments
expr: syntax error

Although I don't believe I got the first time I ran it on a clean system, just on subsequent runs after I have killed the previous ones.

Are there any smaller sfs I could test with? Maybe just one with a few files would leave the system ok if it failed and I would not have to keep reinstalling to test.

Hope this helps and thanks for working on this.

I think I might go back to the first way I was doing this,
I'll have to write somemore error code to test all this.

I'll let you know...

Okay... I found a major error on my part & fixed it, & rewrote other code.
I think it should be working now ... IT'S STILL in TESTING ... so be careful !

Download the new file at the first original post.
Feed-back if it works or not! ( I gotta know! )

PostPosted: Thu 31 May 2007, 13:28    Post subject: No luck on Puppy 2.13  

I have Puppy 2.13 on a HD install running with no problems.

I have attempted to use the sfs installer but get an error message "An error occured" when I select the sfs file (devx_213.sfs). The sfs file is currently in root (/) on my HD install (mounted on /dev/hda1).

Any ideas ?

Hi PinTail_b; YES... I've not been able to mount SFS files from Puppy 213 or 214.
I beleave they are the newer Squash file type that Barry gave up on (or not).

Suggestion: Perhaps try downloading the devx sfs file for Puppy 216 & use it.

Let me know about this as 216 & newer really need to work with this app.
