SFS Tutorial for Lucid Puppy


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.

SFS files that work well with Lucid

Amarok dejan555‘s amarok-xxx-sfs4-sfs
kmymoney sidder’s kmymoney2_0,89-1_xxx.sfs
Open office 3.2 dingo’s openoffice3.2-sfs4_xxx.sfs

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.


Click the "Choose which SFS to load at bootup" button and you see the next window.


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!

Enjoy Lucid Puppy.
