Sub_title: (Booting from CD, saving to USB flash memory)
 

I am running Puppy 2.16 from cd and saving to a usb-key.
How can I change the "Flushing RAM to save-file" interval, from 5 minutes to 30 minutes? Pizzasgood suggested in another thread to look into /usr/sbin/savepuppyd. But I don't know what has to be changed in there.
(code too complicated for me Wink )

Thanks!

In 2.16final, the 5-minutes saving is disabled, it is always 30 minutes.
Yes, you have to edit /usr/sbin/savepuppyd if you want to change that time -- it is quick easy to figure out where to make the change.

Thank you Barry,

What confuses me is the orange message window showing up every few minutes (<5 minutes), saying : "flushing RAM to pup_save-file".

This save-file is in mnt/home, on the usb-key. Does this flushing really write to the usb-key? I am asking this, because there seems to be no activity in the USB-key, while the flushing happens.

Apologies if this has already been explained. I didn't find the answer with the forum search function, nor by re-reading the release notes.

Best regards,

Bert

Oh, I discovered a bug in /usr/sbin/savepuppyd that causes it to save every 5 minutes rather than 30 minutes!

Grab the attachment.

Gunzip it (open a terminal window where you have downloaded it):
# gunzip savepuppyd.gz
Then drag it to /usr/sbin
Then reboot.
savepuppyd.gz
