Thanks micko. I'm very happy with the outcome.

I have modified the /etc/rc.d/rc.shutdown as follows:

Code:
13) #PDEV1 and PUPSFS and PUPSAVE
  #/initrd/pup_rw has tmpfs, pup_ro1 has ${DISTRO_FILE_PREFIX}save.2fs file (PUPSAVE), pup_ro2 has PUPSFS file.
  #the above are in unionfs at /.
  if [ ! -f "/tmp/No_save" ];then
  #start big if
  #All the snapmerge stuff happens here
  echo "`eval_gettext \"Saving session to \\\${SAVEFILE} (\\\${SAVEPART})...\"`" >/dev/console
  #echo "Saving session to $SAVEFILE (${SAVEPART})..." >/dev/console
  /usr/sbin/snapmergepuppy /initrd/pup_ro1 /initrd/pup_rw
  fi #end big if
  ;;


then added a script "No_save" into /usr/bin as follows:

Code:
#!/bin/sh
echo "test" > /tmp/No_save
/usr/bin/wmpoweroff


and then dragged the script to the desktop and added an icon, so that if I want to do a safe shutdown without waiting for the final save I just click that new icon.

Many thanks for the help!

I want to put this on a computer with 96MB RAM and a 166MHZ Pentium MMX... Would this be too taxing on the hardware, should I go for a build like TurboPup or one of the 486/32MB builds instead?

The standard Slacko was quite slow on a P450 laptop I tried it on - and verrrrrry slow to get to the desktop.
THINSlacko is stripped down, but unlikley to be significantly quicker on something as old as your kit.

Hey Smithy, what's the "Partition save" icon you have on the desktop in the third pic?

3GB DRAM and it uses up 675MB? What does that indicate?
Have I set it up wrong?

Edit

Using the old Thinslacko that is from may 2012

No, that's ok nooby. Normally, on clean boot you would expect around 400M, this is the sfs expanded. Then open a few apps, browser with tabs and such it quickly increases. I am just trying to get the THIN version (will be renamed "thin".. no caps) to load in less than 256 RAM. So far in virtualbox it seems to work ok. The biggest problem for me is that to maintain decent graphics support, mesa is absolutely required with these newer X.org versions, and that is one FAT package! (~30M).

I hope this gives you some understanding. Never mind if it doesn't Wink . You have 3 gig so are in luxury Smile .

Hi 01 micko, nice that you are still working on the thin slacko idea, just a few things I noticed on it.

1. Abiword only opens as a small square, each time you have to resize it to get it to open full screen.
2. The console could do with copy and paste (like 3hd, for those lazy moments).

3. Any way of getting the qt in it to default to clear look or whatever it is called, the one that looks a lot nicer on jack in 3hd. Without having to load a full QT which is quite a large package?

4. Synaptics is still knackered on laptop (like a lot of other distros)
Only 3hd correctly sorted the touchpad. The problem is the tap bit and I haven't managed to get it to work on loads of them (believe me i tried) so they get junked.

5. After sorting out the connection wizard, each time you boot up and hit connect, it runs through the wizard process again before finally getting to connect. What I do is hit the close box on each step and then it gets there eventually.(That was the pup dial wizard btw).

Only minor issues really, but thought you might like to check if you are doing a new one.

That is a Puppy ! Great light but it makes the maximum.
It fills my needs. Just added Flasphayer and pupsavconfig.
Firefox v12 would be better perhaps (i cannot load pictures on Facebook).
Wait and see. 99 MB ! Laughing
Desktop icons : 3 themes, it's enough. We shall add personal choices.GreyFx is a nice one between the default offer.
Gtk themes: four choices, it's enough !
Well, well, well, I enjoy that way of doing.
Merci.
packages download
I must add Slacko's repositories.

Yeah, it's one of my favourites. No bloat - just great basic functionality. Seems to have a good kernel that runs well on a lot of hardware.

What hardware are you running Pelo?

(ps: I added Opera as my browser - works great!)
