Handling of improper shutdown for full hd installations is now officially supported. This will apply to future puppies built from Woof.

I have announced this here:

I plan to build Quirky Puppy 010 in a couple of days, so any of you guys who are interested can give it a try out. I'll announce Quirky 010 on my blog when it is available.

Do you have bones? If so, navigate to your "woof" directory and type "bones download'. It is explained on bkhome.org/bones

Cheers Smile

Quirky 010 is out, so you can grab a complete distro to test the new improper shutdown handling if you wish:

PostPosted: Mon 29 Mar 2010, 01:07    Post subject: Laptop stops at command prompt after GRUB on reboot  

G'day SilverPuppy,

I love your efforts to this end. I'm a Unix/Linux newbie, with many years of Windows experience at both hardware and software level from my MS-DOS days to the present. I'm setting up an old Toshiba Tecra 8200 PIII laptop with 512Mb RAM & 20Gb Hdd for my elderly father-in-law to surf the net to look up past events and friends/family and possibly use webmail.

Here is what I have done so far...
    --1. I have downloaded and completed a full hdd install of the latest Puppy 4.3.1 Seamonkey.iso install as the the only OS on the system on one partition (sda1) alongside a second Linux swap-file partition (sda2).
    --2. I have replaced my rc.sysinit & rc_shutdown files with yours and set the permissions of each file with the "chmod 755" command.
    --3. I have removed the laptop main battery and simulated a power failure where upon the system boots up to the GRUB selection screen then
      -a. it detects the improper shutdown and reboots.
      -b. brings up GRUB menu again then checks the disk.
      -c. the system then sits at a command prompt displaying the following...
Quote:
Starting up...
Making the file system usable...
Performing filesystem check after improper shutdown...puppy:inode2 ref count is 15, should be 17. FIXED.
puppy: *****REBOOT LINUX*****
puppy:14925/114804 files (0.1% non-contiguos), 323578/4590565 blocks done
Updating... done
Loading kernel modules... done
Loading swap partition /dev/sda2... done
waiting for modules to complete loading... pcmcia usb done
Setting up services (network, printing, etc)... [backgrounded]
Recognising media devices... optical done
#
      -d. I type in "reboot" and hit enter with the screen clearing to display...
Quote:
puppy is shutting down
mounted directly, session alread saved
Terminated
#
      -e. I then manual power off via the laptop power switch.
      -f. Wait 30 seconds and manual power on via the laptop power switch.
      -g The system powers up to the GRUB menu then moves on as per normal to stop and display a XORG warning asking to "Ignore" a incomplete shutdown or to go to a "Command line".
      -h. I choose "Ignore" and it boots up correctly.


I had to edit my GRUB menu.lst file to add pfix=force to allow the laptop to automatically shutdown the power after a "Shutdown" of the X GUI. This works fine prior to installing your files and after it. They are the only changes I have made since the full Hdd install of Puppy 4.3.1.
So, my question is is this a known problem and can you suggest a possible work around?

I look forward to any pertinent advice.

The Doctor
