No you can delete them.

AlI can suggest is try again......perhaps testing frugally just the pup_431.sfs by adding a menu entry

Hmm, I see something interesting.

1. I booted using a Puppy-4.31.1 live CD+pupsave.

2. Ran SpaceMonger->[under WINE] and displayed the space usage of the contents of the BoxPup partition on sda3.

3. There's a HUGE space usage by:
/mnt/sda3/mnt/sda8/puppylivecdbuild
But that should be [and isn't] on sda8.
Don't know how that went wrong, but it doesn't [or shouldn't] matter, because there's still enough free space on sda3.
I'll now delete that folder and all its contents.

Just now rebooted back into BoxPup on sda3...
And the free space is back up to 1.6GiB. Very Happy

that is where the remaster is created...it does not include itself and normally you rebuild the iso with it, or move it to the frugal install and delete once done

Thanks, Panzerkopf!

I changed naming of sfs-file to better support dpup, upup, spup, ...

Just used it once, and it worked for me. Haven't changed anything but naming of sfs-file, so use at own risk.

Yes, it would be nice to know, I didn't know that, when I made the changes. I needed it for dpup. I tried to make it general and so it would be a simple task to make any changes to the naming of the sfs-file,in the script, at a later time.

A nice mod to the script would allow the user to select the version of Puppy, and then have the script create the file name based on that.

Added backward compatibility with old versions and different woof based versions
(as JorgenS suggested)
Now we can edit a name of compressed file (manually) before remastering(as tlchost suggested).
Note! I created it "theoretically" because haven't all versions of Puppy. Test beforehand and use at own risk.

Just to double-check... Will your latest version create a working /root/.packages folder when remastering a Puppy 431 install?? So that the package manager works in the new, remastered version??

Thanks.

Sorry, I never use package manager. I install packages manually only.
As mentioned above, this script must work theoretically, so I didn't test it scrupulously.
Did you have some problems with it?

No, just checking before I use it..

But I noticed earlier in the thread that you said you have made this script 431 compatible..

I wondered how - and was hoping it was the /root/.packages fix because the only issue I've had on 431 with Dougals script (aside from the name of the sfs, which you fixed nicely, btw) is that the package managers don't work in the remastered build.

Part of the remaster checks the package manager files to see if changes were made to carry them over as normally /var remains as original.

Err... God I'm thick... That's a 'yes it's fixed', right? Embarassed

By the way, I don't use the package manager either, but still want it to work in my remastered puplets...
