Once written to normal DVD it can't be undone, just ignored and not reloaded if same file exists in the newest directory, but its still there which is great if you really have need to recover a file that you overwritten, or changed.
for example I use a friends wifi with a password, later a different friends wifi and pass. I multisession save changes between trips locking those setup files into sessions via a DVD. Same DVD but different friends 'borrowed' computer.
Go back to first wifi friends house, copy network files from that date directory into active RAM area and wallah no need to retype or ask for password.

Here is a link for the subforum dealing with multisession, covers many ways of using multisession with puppylinux.

Multisession saveback with a live bootable CD/DVD and hopefully soon BluRay is unique to puppylinux, and takes a different look on how to expand hardware usage.

Once you get over the learning hump, multisession will appear as a simple no brainer, why doesn't other liveDistros and/or M$ Windows steal the concept & methods, continually floors me. <that over 7 years of being floored>

I most likely posted the simple burn script sometime in the past in that subform. But I will follow up here until I post the burn script, then lets move to a new thread over there.

PostPosted: Fri 08 Mar 2013, 13:09    Post subject: sloppy reburn script  

Code:
------ START LINE for file called reburn ----
#!/bin/sh
growisofs -Z /dev/sr0 -R -D -quiet -b isolinux.bin -c boot.cat -no-emul-boot -boot-load-size 4 -boot-info-table ./
eject /dev/sr0
---- END LINE


save as script in same folder as the rest of the main puppy files and either click from there, or open terminal program into the same directory and run like ./reburn

reburn script MUST be in same folder as main puppy files and MUST be started there if run from terminal.

I generally run 'reburn' script from terminal so I can read the msgs being kicked out by the growisofs command, there is a lot of lag time before burning starts if you click on script stuff does not occur for several seconds.

In Pburn what should I select? Burn ISO or copy data?

I put all the files from the old remastered DVD with the new sfs in a directory and selected that directory in "select data from here" I guess I have to select those file to the other column "burn content of this list" Except pburn_symlink_tree right?

Yes, but I am unable to find the make bootable checkbox in pBurn. It's amazing the pBurn is just a script Mr. Berglund has worked a masterpiece he adds lots of intelligence to this script to make it bulletproof, he may have removed make bootable option since its easy to tell if the files needed are in the iso file list.

I almost tried to burn puppy to a redbox rental disc.... Embarassed

If you're trying to make a multisession Puppy optical disk, Menu -> Multimedia -> Burniso2cd works a treat no matter what kind of disk you're burning (CD, DVD or Blu-Ray.) May I suggest using a rewritable disk to test? I've been doing that for many years without any problems.

By the way, Ted Dog, I made a multisession Puppy Blu-Ray disk (BD-RE) which seemed to work just fine. In fact it seemed to boot faster than from a DVD. What is it you're trying to do that's different?

Support burning past the 4G size limit

Using bluray disc as a quicker DVD is ok until you try to save past that 4G, also DVD does not allow files larger than 4G, you can write them but they are not 'shown' correctly (mod 4G) a 5.12G file would appear as a 1.12G file and so on. Also UDF has a better/larger safety area, which would remap bad sections of the disc reducing corruption problems, and has a cleaner method of added session and directories.

Ah., I see. Thank you. I had no idea. Laughing I've not tried to save a file larger than a few hundred MB on a multisession disk.

TOTAL FAIL

The DVD I burned with Pburn (with the sfs made with the script and the files from the old remastered DVD) does not boot.

I must have done something wrong with Pburn. I selected burn data.

Anyone can make it clear for me please?

Pburn has a "Burn ISO" tab. Have you tried that?

No, because I was not burning an ISO AFAIK. There are LOTS of options, I need to know which one, I can't try all Smile
