I suspect that on first startup the Chromium12 was creating and building your personal config files and directories,


Can one find such easily then to see what is left when one shut it down?


Have a look under root for a hidden file (usually starts with a . (dot)). It may not be called chromium depending on what chromium is based on. I don't use it as i'm happy with firefox.

p.s. I will have a look at Iron for you, but it's BIG and has some dependancies not in puppy, may be a sfs only 01micko project.

thanks. I guess if I make use of the working SRwareIron.pet that I aldready have then Ishould be able to make a normal iron.sfs out of the pet?

Code:
pet2dir then dir2sfs
just my wild guess


Are pet and sfs that different?

what if TCL have Iron.tcz then I only need to rename that one to sfs and it is an sfs for some version of puppy?

Hi stu90,

I decided to register to the forum, to thank you for the Umplayer pet that you just made. I love it! I've been using Puppy Linux for about a year, learning through this forum. And let me tell you, if a computer illiterate like me can learn about Puppy, anybody can do it. Thanks a lot!

Thanks for latest flash pet.

Can I ask. I have now tested what Seaside came up with a fast sfs loader.
Lucid 525 lite being that stripped off would be a practical testing ground for teh sfs-exec-pupsave solution he suggests in his thread on it.

I have tested it on your lupu and on the official and and on Fluppy 13 and on Snowpup 5 and LightHouse pup too. Just now I write from it in Snowpup5 which is a Lupu513 variety.

I want to test it in Lupu 525 Lite again.

But not sure how to get SRware Iron browser going in it. Is it relatively easy to get a pet made into an sfs instead? I only have a pet version of it.

Or is the better approach to place the .Chromium outside of pupsavefile on the mnt/home hdd? I am doing frugal on NTFS HDD.

Hi nooby,
If the .pet works you could try converting the Iron browser .pet to an .sfs

I will use the name iron_browser as an example the name you use should be the exact same as the .pet name

1. make a copy of the iron_browser.pet

2. right click on the iron_browser.pet > rename - now in the name text delete the .pet from the end and replace it with .tgz click rename.

3. now click on the iron_browser.tgz file to extract it.

4. You should now see a iron_browser directory - right mouse click on the iron_browser directory > window > terminal here.

5. in the terminal type dir2sfs iron_browser then click enter.

if all has gone well you should now have an iron_browser.sfs

Jay that sounds like the right way to do it on my level of practice. Give me a week or two to work up courage and I just do it Smile
Much appreciated.

PostPosted: Sat 16 Apr 2011, 11:47    Post subject: Hard disc install  

Has anyone managed to install 5.2.5 lite onto a hard drive?

I have tried using the universal installer, but it does not appear to copy the files to the hard disk.

The bootloader creates the boot folder ok but the actual installer does not copy the files from cd to disk.

Any one else had this problem.

The full version of puppy installs fine but that uses the install Icon on the Desk.

While you figure it out you could use Shinobar's grub4dosconfig to add a frugal install of lupu525 and many others on the hdd and play with them?

The problem appears to be after the following points:-

select the internal (IDE or SATA) hard drive option
choose sda ATA VBOX HARDDISK, size 1GB

It then does a SANITY CHECK which comes up with the following:-
cannot be unmounted!
currently mounted read-write
does not have lupusave.3fs file in it.

I have tried un-mounting the drive at this point which does nothing
I cannot seem to be able to get past this problem.

If I do continue it says that the target drive is , which has an ext2, of size 800m
if I ok this nothing is copied from the cd onto the drive
