Mike that sounds good to me. I use SFS-Exec made by seaside, it still lack some error checking or needs to lack them to say fast. Anyway works superfast and easy to use loading sfs and then unloading them on the fly and no waiting at all and no rebooting or anything. So handy.

So hope that Techno still consider this idea of his.

Thanks Aitch.

i had made a similar program based loosely on jrb's sfs linker ... basically it parsed the .desktop files on the sfs and executed the Exec= line or brought up a menu in the case of multiple .desktop files on an sfs ... last I recall there was an error for ayttm due to having unnecessary quotes

I'll throw a few strange ideas in here just to add to the confusion:

****
It would be nice if the ISO image could have multiple kernel versions and sfs files that contained drivers for all sorts of hardware and a whole lot of stuff like that. As it boots, it could select the version that is intended for this sort of machine.

****

It would make some sense to split the save file into more than one part. The automatically selected stuff should be kept in a list so that during the first shutdown, the user can be asked about only saving just what is needed for this machine onto the hard disk or saving all the sfs files etc.

****

I have made open office work by having it actually live on a memory stick and using ln -s commands to like to it. This means it would not be compressed. We could instead mount a compressed version via a loopback and then make the links. This would allow OO to only really use up the space of the links.

When you want to run OO, it would be a script that does the links etc and then runs the main body of it.

As long as the kernel, initramfs and zdrv match it isn't a problem ...in other words the pup*.sfs can be independent
