When you type "too many things at startup" are you referring to SFS files or something else?

Hi edoc Very Happy
Thanks for you reply Wink
I should have been more clear Rolling Eyes
Jwm loads faster than say openbox does

PostPosted: Fri 13 Jun 2014, 15:43    Post subject: How to start the system with an alternate desktop manager  

Hello @Partman

I am NOT the right guy to address this as I have always used Openbox WM that comes OOTB in LH64. But, to better understand what you share, I ask:
  • Does this occur upon boot up, initially, when say you boot to X, then start "xwin jwm"?
  • or, is it occurring after you set the system to autostart xwin with jvm versus openbox at boot time?Is there any messages showing up on the system consoles after issuing the xwin jvm and then after desktop error you "return to prompt" to see if console shows any errors?
I'm sure there is a way, if you haven't already done so, that JVM can become the default WM for desktop starts done at anytime.

BTW, how are you running your system? Is it Live, frugal, or full?

As you are showing a fondness for LH64, you may want to poke around on this site you will find many other useful steps to match your work habits and help you address need. One of them is as follows:
  1. Open the Mariner ISO and notice where those SFSs are.
  2. You can add or delete as you see fit for your own customized Mariner (by using ISOmaster or GrowISOfs to write directly to DVD.
There are many other little GEMs in what the author has done to make our lives simple and easy on this distro.

Hope this is helpful

On what Puppy did you do the burning? With what app?

Do you have any boot discs of other Puppies or Linux distros to try?


I burnt the DVDs from Lupu 520 with both Pburn and Burniso2cd.
Later, I tried booting the same DVD on my Toshiba Satellite that is dual core AMD with 4gigs of ram and it booted fine from it.
But evidently, the Dell desktop PC with 4gigs of ram and an intel dual-core processor does not have enough of a delay in its BIOS boot process to read the DVD as bootable and drops through to the next boot device which in this case is my Grub for Dos menu.
I do not know if adding a selection to menu.lst to boot from the DVD would help and I am unsure of how the selection would be worded in menu.lst.

For understanding, are you saying that you have 2 multi-session DVDs and that each boots on your laptop, but do not boot on either of your desktops?

On your other question, the isolinux.cfg on your DVDs (and the ISO) is the boot manager configuration file. If you need to change or add anything to your ISO, boot your laptop to LH64 and use ISOmaster to manipulate changes of any existing file to a new ISO.

Here to help

could be a blessing in disguise. by copying the kernel and inird to harddrive and booting witbout any pmedia settings ( leave off ) it should default to multisession since the sfs file would be found on dvd only. Would boot very fast. Very Happy

menu.lst would use (cd) to refer to optical...eg (cd)/initrd.gz ... or perhaps find could be used....

Not something I have tried out so no guarantees...

Are you running Live with save to DVD or are you running save-sessions on HDD/USB?

If Live, during boot Mariner asks (with a timeout) if you want to continue with the SFS it sees, automatically; or if you want to individually select the SFSs.

On HDD, if you have more than 1 save-session, LH64's boot process will list the sessions and wait for you to select iff there is more than 1 save present.

OK, in any event, have you done a version check of your running system to see which JAVA version is in use?

There are some in the forum who are better positioned to give an answer that is more neatly system library friendly for JAVA, than I.

I'm still waiting for JDK for version 8 with fingers crossed before the worldwide, free, Android class, restarts so that the eClipse IDE and the Android component can be added.

Hope this helps

gcmartin - have you looked at Tizen at all?

Linux-based, Google-free, it's easy to port Android apps, 2,000 Tizen apps already posted & 100% profit to app posters for the first year ... what's not to like?

Wink
