How to move savefile from one partition to another? (Solved) Subject description: Frugal Install
This PC has no harddisk. I did a Frugal Install of Lucid Puppy 5.2.8 in a USB stick of 4 GB. The stick has 2 partitions. All the Puppy files are in sda1 partition. The savefile alone is in sda2 partition.
I would like to move the savefile from sda2 to sda1 partition of USB stick.
In ROX file manager, I see /mnt/home pointing to sda2.

Try this. Boot up and when you get the initial splash screen quickly hit the F2 button and you should get a help screen. Type:-
and press Enter. Puppy should boot into RAM only without loading the save-file (so it can be moved without problems). Click on the icons of the 2 partitions sda1 and sda2 so you mount them both and have 2 ROX windows open. Drag and drop the save-file across from sda2 to sda1 and select "move". Close the windows, unmount the partitions and then reboot. When the dialog comes up offering to create a save-file just click "do not save" as you do not want to create another save-file. _________________ Oscar in England
