Welcome to a Lucid Puppy SFS tutorial.
So you have clicked the SFS button in Quickpackage and landed here! What now? Read on...
Below there are some links to SFS files. Perhaps you are wondering what exactly an SFS is? Well SFS stands for "Squash File System"
which is a file system that Puppy Linux utilises. It is compressed, hence "Squash". It needs to be mounted like any other file system.
Puppy sets up several "layers" of file systems at first boot and has the ability to add more SFS layers. People in the Puppy community make large programs
such as Open Office into SFS because a Pet would populate much of Puppy's savefile. Unfortunately SFS can not be used on a full install.
Now, download an SFS and save it to /mnt/home. You can configure your browser's download manager to do this to save mucking about later.
Once your file is in you can open "Bootmanager" from the Menu. Click "Menu (or Start) > System > Bootmanager". A window appears.
You choose your SFS from the left pane, add it to the right pane with the arrow, click "ok" and you are done. Now reboot and your SFS
is ready to use.
You may find the following link useful. It is for sfs_linker, a program by jrb. It allows for mounting of SFS files on the fly, without a reboot.
It is still in development, so as always there is no warranty!

Puppy sets up several "layers" of file systems at first boot and has the ability to add more SFS layers. People in the Puppy community make large programs
such as Open Office into SFS because a Pet would populate much of Puppy's savefile. Unfortunately SFS can not be used on a full install.

===SFS Tutorial for Lucid Puppy===
{{image url="http://users.tpg.com.au/01micko/pics/qp-sfs.jpg" title="text" alt="text"}}
Welcome to a Lucid Puppy SFS tutorial.
So you have clicked the SFS button in Quickpackage and landed here! What now? Read on...
Below there are some links to SFS files. Perhaps you are wondering what exactly an SFS is? Well SFS stands for "Squash File System"
which is a file system that Puppy Linux utilises. It is compressed, hence "Squash". It needs to be mounted like any other file system. Puppy sets
up several "layers" of file systems at first boot and has the ability to add more of these. People in the Puppy community make large programs
such as Open Office in to SFS because a Pet would populate much of Puppy's savefile. Unfortunately SFS can not be used on a full install.
Now, download an SFS and save it to /mnt/home. You can configure your browser's download manager to do this to save mucking about later.
Once you file is in you can open "Bootmanager" from the Menu. Click "Menu (or Start)>>System>>Bootmanager". A window appears.
{{image url="http://users.tpg.com.au/01micko/pics/bootmgr.jpg" title="text" alt="text"}}
Click the "Choose which SFS to load at bootup" button and you see the next window.
{{image url="http://users.tpg.com.au/01micko/pics/bootmgr-sfs.jpg" title="text" alt="text"}}
You choose you SFS from the left pane, add it to the right pane with the arrow, click "ok" and you are done. Now reboot and your SFS
is ready to use.
You may find the following link useful. It is for sfs_linker, a program by jrb. It allows for mounting of SFS files on the fly, without a reboot.
It is still in development, so as always there is no warranty!

Puppy 006 is a milestone release. The changes made since 002 to turn a hacker's hobby into a releasable Puppy are basically complete: the cutback of the dri/glx video (003), the new kernel 2.6.33.2 (004), the Choose Your Browser infrastructure (005), and with 006 comes the Quick Package installer. There is one more surprise for 007 but it uses the Quick Package infrastructure which is why I say the changes are basically complete.
Lucid Puppy will have a new feature named Quick Package that will be a one-click install for popular, well-written, useful Linux programs that will be specially configured and tested for Lucid Pup.
