Puppy should automatically scan for and find the pup_save.3fs file wherever it is when you boot up. If you want to choose between multiple pup_save files you can just give them different names, like pup_save.3fs, pup_save1.3fs ... pup_save9.3fs etc.
If Puppy is not finding your pup_save.3fs file then can you please tell us more about your system and setup?
puppy is able to see all of my session files(either on usb or hd media) but it could only gives me a menu of multiple saved session files on whichever the first media it had scanned sucessfully for "pup_save*.3fs" ...
what i would like to ask is that , are there any way for me to specifically ask puppy only to scan for session files on a particular partition of any hd or usb media if there are session files on more than one media and partition ??
not that its usefull in any sense if i could do that , its just something that i stumbled upon a few days back when i was moving files among partitions and disks ...
any way to do that , like passing parameters during the bootup ??
I'm honestly not sure whether these work in Puppy 2.xx, and I won't have a chance to test it for a day or so. You might want to read through that thread and search the other forum, as well as doing some tests yourself. If it doesn't work the way you need it to then it may be possible for Barry to add that function in a later version.
I guess Puppy reasons that there's no point in giving you a choice since you've already specified the save file you want to use....
I'm not convinced that Puppy manages save files in an optimal fashion yet and I've made some suggestions for how things could be done differently. barry hasn't had a chance to do anything about it yet, I guess. Perhaps you'd like to contribute your ideas in my thread on that subject in the other forum at murga.org. (Search there for a thread started by me in the Suggestions subforum about pup_save naming conventions.)
And by the way, thanks for your kind words. You're more than welcome, and I'm glad to have been able to help, at least in a small way.
it was your PHOME and PFILE hints that i found a way to solve my "little odd" problem ... at least for the moment all those work for me quite well enough ...
btw ... since puppy normally comes with good and concise tutorials , do you have any tutorial for unionfs and squashfs(or whatever they are called) which are straight forward and preferably puppy related like what i saw on "ShellScriptsExamples" for first time user ??
