Save to partition on USB flash drive.
Not saving to file but entire partition.


Do you mean that after saving to the entire USB stick and rebooting the saved data were recognized and used OK? Did not get to the fist boot screen again after reboot? Any old savefiles in any subdir in the stick?

Also what exactly do you mean by "Manual frugal install to USB"? Which files where copied over to USB. Just initrd.gz, vmlinuz and the slacko sfs? At the root of the stick or in a subdir?
How do you setup boot device? grub/grub4dos/BIOS/other?

Sorry for the too many questions.
Thx

Yes

Not after reboot, but after a cold boot it boots to the desktop.
A normal shutdown or reboot does this:
Stops at screen showing:

login: root (automatic login)
login: root login on tty1

Yes just copy those files to the USB flash drive.

Root of the stick.

I have Grub4dos installed to the MBR of the hard drive with an entry in the menu.lst for booting from the USB flash drive. Have USB flash drive plugged in when I boot to the Grub4dos menu.

Would it be too much to ask for your menu.lst entry?

The problem I have is different than yours. There is no grub or HD in my system. Just the USB stick.
However, when I used an old initrd/init that successfully booted from the USB/SDcard it also hanged at shutdown. I think this is a separate rc.shutdown issue.

More info if possible please?

The menu entry is working for me, always has, but I haven't tested grub for a month or so. Is there a problem installing grub?

More on the wine thing, (re page 26, post by ejb)

Ok, silly me found the wine .desktop files under ~/.local, where they have always been, but none of them seem to work for me. They do have a similar syntax as you describe and some of the commands work from the commandline but all throw an error due to %f being appended to each one. So either way, they'd need to be hacked if moved to /usr/share/applications.

Again, jury is out on that one.

Found version 1.94 at
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=76279&search_id=73230355&start=390
It is in third entry from top of page

Not sure if it will work since developer has discontinued use in current version of Slacko

Hope this helps you

What pupmode does your /etc/rc.d/PUPSTATE show?

=== Common Pupmodes ===

PUPMODE 02 : full install
PUPMODE 03 : full install, flash drive
PUPMODE 05 : first boot [or pfix=ram]
PUPMODE 06 : pup_save is a partition
PUPMODE 07 : ditto, but flash drive
PUPMODE 12 : normal running puppy
PUPMODE 13 : ditto, but flash drive
PUPMODE 77 : multisession cd/dvd [13+64]

IIRC 06 is highly experimental which must mean problematic. I am not sure that I
understand the intended purpose of mode 06 unless it is a means of exceeding the
normal savefile size limit. If so it would probably apply to a partition on a
USB HDD. BK may be the person to explain.

With non-pae ff:

Run simple Grub Legacy.
After assigning location of menu.lst (/dev/sdax), it doesn't
create the list or go any further.

Have never seen this happen before.

5.4 beta2 seems to be working nicely on this old Toshiba A200 laptop. Live CD with 3fs save file on my data partition.... Nice and snappy compared to lupo.

Slacko seems more snappy because the screen refresh is much faster - eg browser pages appear almost instantly, whereas in lupo the same pages take a half second or so to display.

It was while I was experimenting with glxgears in both Slacko and Lupo that I stuffed up the windows manager in Lupo (I have posted a question in the beginners section). FYI both Slacko and Lupo give about 62 fps according to glxgears.
