I implemented a another function for menu entry 7a, savefile creation, mount and rsync with /initrd/pup_rw . It gets mounted on /initrd/pup_a then rsync -au with current savefile. The purpose is that if using a savefile that is too small for the session then it is easy to make and mount a new bigger one and save everything to that semi-automatically. Actually I want to have two savefiles which provide an overflow type storage option. I t should be one step more to unmount the first savefile resize it and remount to pup_rw then rsync from pup_a ... !

EDIT: no need to sync from pup_a!

added resize savefile on the fly!

I will add 'swap savefile on-the-fly' feature too, as there is a demand for it.

Hi stemsee,

The 'swap savefile on-the-fly' feature seems to be a major innovation.

The 'resize savefile on the fly' seems already added, but not as yet generally available.

If these new options are intended for immediate application (rather than remastering) then a separate pet/sfs would seem to be a most useful addition.

I don't run any frugal Pups, but I would appreciate clarification.

My regards

hi Jasper

The swap savefile feature is just a mechanical illusion, using 3 savefiles. The original, the new-empty, and the desired one, followed by restartX or something. Just shifting the contents around the triangle, rather than actually mounting and un-mounting, but that would be the preferred option. I will experiment with both methods, and I see a third also, but I lack the technical know-how to script it.

The reason I add it to StemseeS-Remastering-Suite (with post remaster utilities) rather than a separate pet/sfs is because only need to add a few lines of code, packaging is already done! And the create a savefile option with mounting and syncing is already in the Menu. The user is welcome to separate it if desired or just download the entire 1.14mb pet/sfs.

rsync or cp not mv
Code:
mv /initrd/pup_rw/* /initrd/pup_a/  && cp /initrd/desired-save/* /initrd/pup_rw/


present savefile contents backed-up to new-savefile, copy wanted savefile contents to present (empty) savefile. restartX see if it works?

Actually mv should do it.

the command to unmount savefile seems to be

Code:
umount -l /initrd/pup_rw


the code to mount the savefile seems to be

Code:
mount -t ext4 $path$SAVEPART$SAVEFILE /initrd/pup_rw


Is there something else to it?

Stemsee,

Has anyone come back to you with testing results from your remaster suite? I've had some issues but I cannot elaborate at this current moment. I'll provide more detail in the next few days.

Kindest regards,

Slavvo67

@slavvo67

Not really! Only when it doesn't work. Which I take to mean that almost no-one is interested in using it, or that everyone who has used it is satisfied!

Not knowing is the worst part! Confused

Well, I am extremely interested in using it and testing it to the fullest. I'll be giving it a good work over in the next week or so. I hope to report back with enough clarity to help you make some tweaks.

Best,

That would be great. I look forward to your feedback. I intend to rewrite/organize sections of the code and menu into functions, so any ideas will be welcome for that time.

Hello @StemSee. Considering the work you have done in both Remaster and Save-session, does this effort by @Gyro offer an extension/option to your work? (I saw your post on your reorganization potential)
