puppy files in tinycore
« on: May 07, 2024, 03:15:01 PM »

     hi all

     has anyone ever tried to use puppy sfs files as tcz in tinycore
     they are both squash file systems and if you rename them .sfs to tcz
     they can be symlinked like tcz

     of course the devil is in the details (dependencies etc)

   hi all

   i have a little project on the puppy linux forum called corepup
   that is trying to use puppy sfs files as tcz in tinycore

   i think this can be a big help to tinycore (and puppy)
   taking some of the pressure off tinycore extension developers
   and expanding tinycore's array of extensions

   i would appreciate help and input
   either positive or negative
   on this topic

   thanks ulfr

Where are all these SFS packages for Puppy? I've gone hunting and mainly found PET packages, just a handful of SFS packages from 2009 and earlier. I can't imagine much interest in using those on current TC.

  hi cnk

  go to the puppy forum
  and go to the
  additional software (pets and stuff)  subforum
  there is tons of stuff there

  also one can easily convert a pet package and other formats into an sfs file and then to a tcz file

  im sure that if something interested you
  someone on the forum would help build it

  a very interesting development is the portable apps (like firefox etc)
  i have gotten portable firefox to run in tinycore

  i am looking at a number of basic apps
  firefox
  media player
  etc
  which we often have trouble with
  just to make it easier to build a useable system
  and have them as tcz files that anyone can just download and use

  and of course there is always the deb to tcz route to work on

  the point of this project is that since tinycore and puppy have such similar outlooks
  collaboration would benefit both
