@mistfire - A quite unexpected ADSL/VDSL changeover by my ISP provider put me offline for a bit hence the late reply. I heartily agree with not running extra processes! Just as info, I did do a little looking at the frontend_funcs file in Slim and to get the puppy event manager to autoplay cds and dvds I had to re-enable the create_appinfo_func, probe_optical_func, and create_icon_func (some needed parameters by the first two are generated there). I also changed the exit in all of the rox tests to return.

Maybe it is just me but I've never been able to get either Thunar or PCManFM volume management alone set up to give rock solid autoplay. Doesn't matter to me but it's a major issue for several of my ex-windows users.

4.2r41 continues to be as solid as it is slim Smile

thanks,

Seems OK - bit faster to boot, perhaps.
Quicksetup has reverted to truncation of options again.
What is the point of the opening menu asking whether to boot without save when the same question is asked again when closing down!
Still don't like the browser.
However, small, fast and lightweight is good for it's main purpose of testing/diagnosis/& co.

Usual procedure: boot CD, select no save file ...run... shutdown, do you want to save file/w.h.y. - SAVE - NO.
Not your fault, this nonsense is and has been in most live CDs for years, possibly decades.
It's a bit like the full quicksetup which defaults to LA/Oz/USA simply because only a couple of developers have been sharp enough to make everything self-consistent.
Frankly, IMO everything should default to PERTH (or Queensland?!) which is where its origin lies - just due deference and good manners. In the scientific world attribution is everything, plagiarism has no place (not accusing that here, though).

@Sage I tested that on virtualbox. It does not show that message. That was strange.

Not even remotely the same beast! You need a regular desktop PC, bog std. CD drive, etc.

r41 updated to r42 on the core 2 duo laptop (4.10.2 inbuilt kernel) and on the Pentium M laptop (4.4.52 LxPupSc kernel swapped in). Both are Grub4Dos frugal installs to SSD and CF card respectively and are booting, running. connecting, suspending and saving to savefile correctly. glxgears is right in line with that expected on both laptops.

@Sage I mean it does not show another save prompt after I select NO SAVE in save session dialog upon shutdown. Did you boot in pristine mode?
