For those of you that might enjoy the humor in the ambiguity of it, I had originally entitled this "Giving Puppy the Bone" or "Puppy gets the bone" (in honor of OneBone).

This will keep xwin from being called the first time if used. xwin can be run anytime after that to start your window manager.

The line numbers might be different now, I did this a version or two ago. If there are any questions, feel free to ask.


Set Var to yes at beginning (not sure if this is needed, but I used it):


Line 43 (where pfix args are set):
nox)  XWINDOW="no";;       #no xwindows

Line 1272 (new addition to the PUPSTATE file)
echo "XWINDOW='$XWINDOW'" >> /pup_rw/etc/rc.d/PUPSTATE



(PUPSTATE is included already in xwin, so we can use it here)

if [ "$XWINDOW" != "no" ];then
#finally, start X...
#...if PC hung, run xorgwizard at next bootup (see further up).
echo "XWINDOW='yes'" >> /etc/rc.d/PUPSTATE

Throw in elinks, ytree, mp, gpm (don't forget this one), mplayer/mencoder and you've got a cli capable puppy that a bit different than not pivoting.
