Additions:
~A **""SquashFS""**(SFS) is a compressed __read-only__ file that contains files and a directory structure. If Puppy is Frugally installed an SFS forms the base of the Puppy installation. Extra SFS files can be loaded as additional layers. In full installs an SFS can be decompressed and copied to the installation. The file extension is ##.sfs##. Often large or multiple programs are packaged in this format.
==Loading SFS software packages with a Frugal installation==
~1. The SFS package should be located at ##/mnt/home##.
---
~2. Then use one of the following methods to load the SFS:
~~-[[SFSLoad SFS Load]] (does not require re-booting) menu option at: //Menu > Setup > Setup Puppy > SFS Load//
~~-[[BootManager]] (requires re-booting) menu option at: //Menu > System > ""BootManager""//
~~-The RightClick menu option from the filer.
~~-Use terminal commands.
==Loading SFS software packages with Full installation==
~If you are using a Full Installation see [[HowtoAddSFStoFullInstall How to Add SFS to Full Installation]].
==Mounting SFS==
~If not loaded SFS files can be un/mounted and searched in ROXfiler simply by click the file in the filer window.
~For a guide to the Squash file system see this [[http://tree.celinuxforum.org/CelfPubWiki/ELCEurope2008Presentations?action=AttachFile&do=get&target=squashfs-elce.pdf PDF file]].

==Using SFS software packages with Puppy Frugally Installed==
Package installation:
- place the SFS file at ///mnt/home//, then
- either (A) follow the instructions at (requires re-booting): //Menu > System > ""BootManager""//
- or (B) follow the instructions at (does not require re-booting): //Menu > Setup > [[http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=490716#490716 SFS-Load]]//
- or (C) [[http://bkhome.org/blog/?viewDetailed=02202 another option is sfsget]]
- accessed through either the //Menu// or the command-line interface (and not by clicking on the SFS package file)

===How to make a SFS file of a software package===
Copy or move all the directories and files that make up the software package into one single directory. Then issue the //mksquashfs// command: %%
# mksquashfs
SYNTAX:mksquashfs source1 source2 ... dest [options] [-e list of exclude dirs/files]
%%
e.g.:
%%
mksquashfs <path_to_directory> <path_to_directory>.sfs -noappend
%%
Verify the installed version of //mksquashfs// with:
%%
mksquashfs -version
%%

"SFS-TCZ_Linker may be a good idea if you absolutely must run liveCD only (no rebooting, no session saving.) But running a standard frugal with pupsave, the Linker will add symlinks to the pupsave layer only--and later remove them, even if similarly named files or links were later added via PPM, Gslapt or other means. This is likely to adversely affect reliability and stability. With a full install any files removed would be gone forever, making it even riskier. So at least for now, if you are saving your session at shutdown I still recommend a frugal install and ""BootManager"" for adding SFS files."
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=448985#448985
Adding too many layers to AUFS reduces performance and slows down saving.
01micko writes "I made a tool (see my signature) that makes it super easy for anyone to make a pet or sfs out of debs, if you want you can try it and maybe suggest where I can make improvements. debs2pkg or alien2puppy, the former is what it says and the latter supports Slack tgz and txz formats."

===Appendix (old entries for Puppy 1)===
pre-1.0.7 users can use it by renaming it to usr_more.sfs
1.0.7 users can do the following
edit your rc.local to add the following lines
Code:
echo "Making more loop devices..."
mknod /dev/loop5 b: 7 5
mknod /dev/loop6 b: 7 6
mknod /dev/loop7 b: 7 7
if [ ! "`ls /mnt/home/usr_packagex.sfs 2> /dev/null`" = "" ];then
mkdir /.usr_packagex
echo "Mounting /mnt/home/usr_packagex.sfs file on /.usr_packagex..."
losetup-FULL /dev/loop5 /mnt/home/usr_packagex.sfs
mount -r -t squashfs -o noatime /dev/loop5 /.usr_packagex
unionctl /usr --add --after /root/.usr --mode ro /.usr_packagex
fi
if you are multiple .sfs files the increase then use the next /dev/loop that is empty i.e. the next usr*.sfs will go in /dev/loop6. If you run out of loops make new ones using mknod command as show above.
