dear mistfire,

if I righclick on the save file ion in the tray it disappears. As far as I know it should bring up the dialog for save file enlargment. See attached.

Any idea how to fix this ?

mistfire should easily repair it. It is not a No-Go item. With Puppy you can launch resizepup from the menu or in Usr/share/applications, and from the terminal too ( resizepfile.sh)
My idea, is to link it to the desktop

@Pelo, @Volhaut. The problem that you encounter is the xfce right-click issue. When you right click an item on the toolbar it will show a menu with very fast pace and selected the end portion of the context menu. Since Resize Storage has an exit menu at the end of the context. It will automatically clicks it and exit. A developers which have a knowledge in xfce can fix that. Im just in bash scripts. The best solution for that was right-click and hold then select.

@zagreb

1. Turn OFF secure boot on UEFI
2. Boot X-Slacko Slim
3. Mount EFI partition
4. Mount X-Slacko Slim live cd and mount efi.img
5. Put all efi contents from mounted efi.img to EFI partition (edit grub.cfg when needed)

6. Format the OS partition to ext4
7. Put the sfs, vmlinuz, grub.cfg, and initrd to ext4 partition (edit grub.cfg when needed)

8. Unmount all mounted images and partitions
9. Add efi file to uefi boot entry

New X-Slacko Slim iteration released

Changes:

* Customized 4.12.8 lxpup kernel (compiled by myself). It has more kernel modules to support laptops and variety of hardware.

* Hibernation support (EXPERIMENTAL). It works nicely in both automatic and manual (by specifying resume=<swap partition> as kernel parameter on your bootloader.) You must have a swap partition which the size is the same or bigger than your RAM memory. Hibernation works in frugal (with saved session) and full installation. It does not work on pristine boot or multisession mode. WARNING: The hibernation needs more refinement and tweaks. Because it sometimes corrupts the mounted partitions. Use this feature at your own risk

* cbatticon replaces default battery icon.

Subject description: The bulk is here, laptops without batteries sold low price ?
 

Idea battery icon, battery, wireless, and if all that stuff were useless for our forum subscribers ? it would give more place for indoor entertainment... chained to our chair and computer chained to the wall.... I manufacturers would sell laptop without batteries, for Linux world, that will allow more passengers to play Puppy. Puppy if free, of course, but laptops are expensive.
Don't care my message. Just an idea. For slim computers.
The reason of my dream is because my new battery still behind me. But it's winter season coming.. When spring back again perhaps i will change my opinion Smile
Furthermore my battery icon gives full 100%, in fact it is full of its decreased capacity 0 mAh / 4400 mAh

@Sage did you put the main sfs file to a subfolder? If yes, specify the folder name using psubdir kernel parameter in your bootloader. Otherwise put the main sfs file on the root folder of the drive

No - I didn't understand this part. I don't use laptops (see my previous), frequently I don't have an HD attached; my main use is for fast machine access, testing, diagnosis etc.
What exactly is the purpose of r55? r54 works just fine. Don't recommend listening to the the bleatings of every wannabe when you already have a very fine and functional product.

@Sage it means that if you put puppy_xslacko_4.2.sfs on this manner /<folder name>/puppy_xslacko_4.2.sfs. If yes then specify the folder name on psubdir. for example if the puppy_xslacko_4.2.sfs was in the folder named boot then put this parameter on your bootloader --> psubdir=boot

r55 is just a bugfix of r54. The only difference was the kernel versions between those version. If you want to stick to r54. That will be fine.

If sfs files was still not found you can still use the initrd of r54 and try to boot again.

By the way I have a goal to build a fully functional yet power efficient puppy. A puppy that can match windows functionality but small size and fast.

TIP: if you set pfix=initrd on startup. It will show only a command prompt. Only initrd and vmlinuz are loaded. It was very usable for troubleshooting initrd.

Thanks for explanation, misty. Suspect that few, if any, will bother with those manipulations. r54b is OK for now. Your goal sounds like a blockbuster - everyone will want it.

@Sage I already considered called it r54b because I changed the kernel because I want to put a hibernation feature. However I realized that some scripts must be revised in order to support that. Even the initrd, init, and power management script must be revised. As a result it becomes some sort of overhaul so I have no choice but to name it r55 rather than r54b.

I hope that my ultimate goal reached.
