Hi again,

One forum member reported doing a substantial sfs remaster using Ted Dog's ram2sfs with xz compression in 86 seconds.

Here, an xz remaster using Ted Dog's ram2sfs takes about 37 minutes, but a gz remaster takes less than 5 minutes.

Yet, your 15 seconds is not satisfactory?
Quote:
I don't use save files in general and want to save some time on remastering....

I also run with no savefile
To remaster my pup takes <30 seconds (according to time remaster)
Desktop icon to do so that when clicked ...
Normal remaster process run through with no compression of puppy sfs and prompts removed.
zcat initrd.gz piped into cpio (extracts contents). Puppy sfs copied into the same folder and then the content again cpio'd piped through compression, redirected to where my grub4dos expects to find the initrd (and vmlinuz).
Reboot and seconds later running with the newly remastered version.
I currently prefer lzo compression over gzip as even though the filesize is larger lzo loads (decompresses) quicker, so puppy starts up quicker.

Storing puppy sfs inside initrd means that the vmlinuz and initrd pair is all that is required for other LAN (Windows) computers to PXE boot that puppy also.

My core puppy is somewhat bare, so remastering isn't required that often once you have a setup you like. For extra's I use SFS's wrapped inside a RoxApp Dir where the AppRun provides a prompt for which sfs/program to load and sfs_loads the sfs together with pointing the programs config file/directory (sym link) to a read/write version outside of puppy space (so changes preserved across reboots).

Not as sophisticated as LazyPup, but works well for me.

Yes, thanks to my Girlfriend who has paid 50% of the 179,- €, I got it at home now.

It's a 64 bit machine!

Currently running LazY Puppy booted (Grub4DOS) from USB 3.0 HDD ext2 formatted. Next stop: downloading and testing some of the available 64 bit Puppy Systems.

Since I don't have access anymore to my old RSH account and therefor I'm unable to change the topics title to 'discontinued', I'm going to post here:

THIS IS NOW DISCONTINUED AND NOT SUPPORTED ANYMORE!

All my work done is by now combined and continued into T.O.P.L.E.S.S.
