PostPosted: Sun 20 May 2012, 20:59    Post subject: sfs_load command line usage
Subject description: How to use sfs_load from the command-line
 

Typing "sfs_load --help" generates:-

usage: sfs_load [--unload] [--cli] [+/-][EXTRA_SFS_FILE]
Load or unload extra sfs files on-the-fly.

Two questions:-

1. What's the "--cli" option for?

2. Do "sfs_load --unload xxx.sfs" and "sfs_load -xxx.sfs" do the same thing? If not, what's the difference?

Many thanks.

It depends on the version what option is accepted, but most recent sfs_load explains:
Code:
# sfs_load --help
SFS-Load on-the-fly v.1.9.5
Load or unload extra sfs files on-the-fly.
usage: sfs_load [OPTION] [OPTION2 ...] [+|-][FILE_NAME] [+|-][FILE_NAME2] ...
      +FILE_NAME: load, same as FILE_NAME without '+'.
      -FILE_NAME: unload, same as --unload FILE_NAME.
  Options (short, or long):
    -u, --unload: unload the extra sfs files.
    -c, --cli: commandline interface, without dialog.
    -d, --debug: verbose output for debugging information.
    -h, --help: print this help and exit.
    -l, --list=FILE_LIST : read file names from the list file FILE_LIST.
    -q, --quiet: skip the 1st confirmation dialog.
    -v, --version: print version and exit.
    - (without file name): read file names from standard input. Imply '--cli'.
  Examples:
        ls -1 DIR_NAME | sfs_load -
        sfs_load - < FILE_LIST
        sfs_load --list=FILE_LIST
      Note that FILE_LIST contains each filename per a line.
  Other options(sfs_load internal use):
    -n, --no-afterwork: suspend fixmenus and etc. after (un)loading.
    -a, --afterwork (without file name): only do suspended afterwork.
    -s, --skip-fixmenus: skip fixmenus (but do startup scripts and etc.).
    start: auto load at boot (called from /etc/initd.d/sfs_load)
    stop: clean up at shutodpwn (called from /etc/initd.d/sfs_load)

Tried this out today on libreoffice-3.60.sfs on full install ext4 partition using lucid-528-005

Seemed to load ok - was able to bring up word processor, spreadsheet, etc.

Then I uninstalled. I have a question on the uninstall - Using Pfind I searched for libreoffice and found 401 files remaining after the uninstall.
They are files ending in .png, .svg, .desktop, etc - How do I get rid of these files?

Have you ever installed the same or older version of libreoffice?
If so, you need to uninstall the previous install before loading new.
If you installed the older libreoffice manually, that is other than PET or SFS packages, you need to remove the files manually.

Subject description: 1.1 to 1.4 to..
 

A bit less technical (mmhm, manual is good practice/exercise)

The words are mostly in a screenie @387k, not so much bigger than the jpg I did along with. Until I get racy (and my old personal sfs') squared away, any large stuff on disc will have to wait (a few mm sliver on the rim is all that's left and I'm really set on keeping it on cdrw disc if I can).

As more than a few have found, a running devx helps with damage control (the wm in the cap reverts to less than a joy if the devx isn't loaded). Maybe I'll check out what's after 1.4 stable (small I can do on the near horizon).

Good work, all Smile

PostPosted: Wed 28 Nov 2012, 07:12    Post subject: Managing SFSs  

Hello all the SFS experts....

The way I like to manage sfs's on my system, given that I frugally install and test quite a few Puppy versions, is to put each Puppy version into it's own subdirectory but put all the sfs's into a common directory.

I then create a symlink in the Puppy subdirectory to the sfs I want to use in the common directory and then load it with sfs-load-on-the-fly.

This seems to work 100% for some sfs's but for some when I reboot I get the "Configuring filesystem - next boot will be quicker" message as though the boot system always thinks that the sfs has been newly loaded.

So I'm wondering why do different sfs's behave differently in this respect?? and is there anything I can do to make them all be permanent on reboot in this way of working?

Many thanks for any insights or help anybody can provide. It's not a showstopper as obviously I can copy the "misbehaving" sfs into the Puppy subdirectory rather than making a symlink.

Cheers
peebee

Hi peebee,

It seems you are linking individual sfs files. Whilst every sfs may not work in every Pup - I wonder what would happen if you were to link the sfs directory instead of individual files?

SFS-Exec from seaside may be an alternative to load-on-the-fly since either can be used at any time.

My regards

Addendum: now deleted, as my thoughts were useless..

Hi shinobar.

You remember the command --skip-fixmenus? Thanks for introducing this.

LazY Puppy has installed sfs_load 1.9.4 but version of 1.3.9 (the one with my modifications inside) also. For a special use of LazY Puppy from CD/DVD i did made some new modifications on 1.3.9, that makes me able, to run the complete system from CD/DVD and to load the sfs by the RunScripts from CD/DVD without the need to click/confirm the "copy-GUI". So, maybe I'll have something new to be introduced in a new sfs_load version?

I did insert the following code at the very beginning of the 1.3.9 script:
Code:
# 2012-11-20 RSH
#---------------
# Get Pupmode etc.
. /etc/rc.d/PUPSTATE
# Check if run from CD
DoNoCopy="false"
if [ "$PMEDIA" = "cd" ]; then
   DoNoCopy="true"
   elif [ "$PMEDIA" = "CD" ]; then
      DoNoCopy="true"
      elif [ "$PMEDIA" = "dvd" ]; then
         DoNoCopy="true"
         elif [ "$PMEDIA" = "DVD" ]; then
            DoNoCopy="true"
fi
echo "PMEDIA="$PMEDIA
echo "DoNoCopy="$DoNoCopy
#---------------


Then I did change the code at (above) line 1902 to:
Code:
  if [ "$DoNoCopy" = "true" ]; then
     PART="NOCOPY"
  else
     choosepart $TOPART || finish
  fi

As you can see (surely) this disables the "copy-GUI" and as a result it loads the sfs from CD/DVD without to copy it to any other location and no GUI is shown to be clicked away.

Any chance to introduce a command for that behavior of sfs_load (maybe --do-not-copy), so that it would change its behavior only if submitted this (or similar) command?

DPUP485 inside Precise Puppy for instance.
I load the DPUP485 SFS and it runs. That's all.
Same for LHP 503
Same for Fluppy 013.
These three distros were unable to connect Internet on my new Laptop but mounted on the fly on A recent Puppy 5XXXX, they go back to life !
With all their programs (...quite all)

I have fixed and uploaded sfs_load for crashing the system if you are using kernels greater than 3.2. NOTE: not tested on k3.8, reports please.

Many thanks to SFR
