Thank you gyro for posting this. I took your idea and made the sfs, it is available here

http://www.ibm-pc.org/puppy/pup_firmware_all_16.05.04.sfs
MD5sum 75af4d5882af76ed368109238cd6ad45
Size is 65.2MB

This SFS is updated through 05-04-16
I'm begining to think that providing an sfs might be the way to go, instead of the directory tree.
I have a problem with ftp'ing symlinks to my online repository, so any updated files that were a symlink, end up being a copy of the target file.
If I create an sfs file directly from my local copy of the git repository, all symlinks remain intact.
I just did this as a test, and the resultant sfs file "firmware_20160524.sfs" is 67,686,400 bytes, probably not a very significant difference.
Also an sfs file can easily be integrated into puppy as an extra-sfs or as a ydrv.

Any thoughts?

Hi gyro

I think sfs is a good way to go - but maybe not just 1 big one if that's possible - maybe 1 with the "common" firmware like "big" in http://distro.ibiblio.org/puppylinux/firmware/ but brought up date and then a 2nd with the more exotic?

Do you get any download statistics from your current repository to know what people have been downloading?

Excellent resource for the community though....

Cheers
PeeBee

Thanks for contributing.
But, if I replace the current directory with one or more sfs files, they will all be "just 1 big one", the only difference will be date created, (part of the filename).
The currrent setup already tries to do the "common" v "exotic" thing, and I have no confidence in the selection.
I often wonder how many forum problems, where something just doesn't work on someones computer, are down to the optimal firmware being unavailable because someone else decided it's "exotic".
I'm only interested in providing an "all" alternative.

Hi gyro,

This thread is important and I hope you keep it going!

Some might not like the size of the sfs but it is a good tool for troubleshooting missing firmware, I think the average user (like me) has an easier time troubleshooting with the sfs instead of trying to identify missing individual firmware. Those running a full install might like a .pet, maybe if you start making the sfs I will do the .pet?

I do not have git installed so initially I did wget of your repository and stripped out the index.html files, have been just updating the individual files from your web site using info provided in this thread, thats why my sfs date coincides with the dates of some of your thread updates.

My current pup_firmware_all_16.05.21.sfs is 68,300,800 bytes(65.1MB). There are 132 duplicate files in my sfs that probably represent the replacement of sym links with target files in your repository and would explain the size difference between our sfs files.

That's the sort of thing that got me thinking more seriously about an sfs.
"Download this largish .sfs file and rename it as an adrv or ydrv and reboot", is not a terribly difficult process to explain in the forum.

If I do this, I will be producing only sfs files.
In a full install all that needs to be done is unsquashfs it, and then replace the "/lib/firmware" directory in the system with the "lib/firmware" directory created by unsquashfs.

Now available as an ".sfs" file from http://www.fishprogs.software/puppy/firmware-sfs/ (64.5MiB).
Simply download and use as an adrv, ydrv or fdrv.
