(SP1) Remaster-CD updated

October 31, 2008 — BarryK
Rerwin pointed out that the old desktop drive icons were in a remastered CD, which would not be appropriate when the CD is booted on a different PC.

I fixed that, and went through the remaster script updating it for Puppy 4.1.x. Mostly this is to correctly handle Pmount and event manager setting and GTK/JWM theme settings -- that is, those settings will transfer to the remaster.
The script concerned is /usr/sbin/remasterpup2.


more good news :)

Error when remastering from frugal
Username: Raffy
"Beginning with the 4.1 alphas, I noticed that the remaster fails if run from a frugal install*. I've reported that earlier, and since the remaster is being discussed now, mentioning it could help. * Flash-boot could be in a similar situation.

Remaster from frugal

"I just tested a remaster-CD from a frugal install, works fine. I used the 'remasterpup2' script from 4.1.1rc, which is the same as in 4.00 and 4.1.

where is the directory choice

"@Raffy It used to allow you to select any one of the files in a user chosen directory and it would go from there - not sure why this option went away. Maybe do a diff with an earlier version?
