For once I think we`re actually staying within the realms of the thread..!

# 2 thoughts:

1) Use a ramdisk ( image ) instead of initrdfs ( cpio ) like the old Puppies did ( 0 - 1 series ).

2) Bare-bones Puppy with no-install swappable apps. No bloat and easy app. management.

# Total ram used with main SFS loaded into ram is ~ 70 MB or so, not 130 to 170 MB.

Yes perhaps so but we should send a postcard to the op.....

Well my puppy 4 and lucid thingies are all initrdfs.... that at least gives the possibility of reverting to the initrd to shut down. Keeps the init script simpler too and I like being able to access the initrd file system once booted. I dynamically create all the pup_ro(n) so its simpler for that too. Not sure if cpio initrd can do a boot loadiing splash either ... me like pretty.
Cpio initrd like busybox init is great for embedded systems though seems to leave us a little short changed with a mini distro.

100MB or less..my sweet spot... we might even be in agreement Smile
