I changed nothing!

But is that a regular ramdisk, when/where does that get created? is it specified as a kernel argument?

Hi Dry Falls

My scripts need much newer version of yad, jlh currently has version 18! Here is version 37 for 64bit.

Also after running xorgwizard a couple of times ~/.flsynclient config file either disappeared or had permissions changed and wouldn't load until I put in ~/Startup a file with contents
Code:
flsynclient --set
YAD-37.0-64.tar.gz

gz

I believe it is created by init. The file system residing in ram (base is loaded to ram by default - change with pfix=nocopy). Can't figure why it wouldn't show up in the dialog box.

Thanks for yad! Still alot of old stuff in there. On that topic, don't upgrade zenity (the old binary works with the new package (in mate) but the new one breaks all of Tazoc's scripts which call for it.

New 1_profile uploaded to gdrive (160K). Contains updated pets (supersedes the old ones). Latest iso is still Just-Lighthouse64-700.lt.iso.

df

ps, shouldn't need xorgwizard except for emergencies. From command-line, xorgsetup or if that doesn't work, xorg-automatic or xorg-vintage.

There is another bug in there somewhere. I use UK keyboard. When I use the mouse/keyboard wizard to change to UK layout it works fine. But after restarting X r reboot it reverts to US layout. Which file stores this value?

cheers

Firewallstate keeps popping up using cpu-cycles in Conky window even though I have turned it off and requested removal via right-click on taskbar icon.

System is pristine, excepting for a SeaMonkey install via GSlap

Anyone else seeing this behavior.

@Stemsee: From lighthouse look & feel (setup icon in ~/Desktop), or wizardwizard mouse/keyboard... pick uk
changes written to /etc/X11/xorg.conf:
Code:
Section "InputDevice"
   Identifier  "Keyboard0"
   Driver      "kbd"
    Option         "XkbRules" "xorg"
    Option         "XkbModel" "pc102"
    Option         "XkbLayout" "gb" #xkeymap0
EndSection


and /etc/keymap
Code:
uk


Save Session

This persisted for me rebooting. I presume you chose locale at firstrun/Personalise Settings. That is written to /etc/profile (see line 101)

@gcmartin: rightclick firewall icon and choose 'Firewall/on/off/remove'
click 'off'
icon turns red.

then go to ~/Startup and drag firewallstaterun to ~/Startup/DisabledItems

If this doesn't persist across boots, go to /etc.rc.d/rc.local and comment out
Code:
if [ -x /etc/rc.d/rc.firewall ]; then
  /etc/rc.d/rc.firewall start
fi


Also remember that when you make system changes, you should at least restart X

Seamonkey sfs is at gdrive, by the way.

Recap: I had right-clicked to get icon's menu where I select Firewall On/Off/Remove.
  • First, I chose to Firewall-off where it turns icon Red on taskbar.
  • Then I chose Firewall-Remove.
    Note: The taskbar icon remains (in prior versions/PUPs, it disappeared from the taskbar)
If I understand, correctly, you suggest that a desktop restart is required to have all traces of firewallstate out of the active system. But, upon my restarting X desktop, the process firewallstate continues in the system (The taskbar icon is no longer visable now). Conky's process list still shows it using about 0.51%.

This is a DVD pristine boot and not rebooted/session-save at this point in time on this X2 desktop.

Not a show-stopper, though.

Update: Exiting desktop to the prompt and running top, I cannot find "firewallstart", yet on each subsequent restart it shows up. Thus it is buried in the restart desktop procedures somewhere; ignoring the "removal" that was selected.

So, I exited the desktop again; Ctrl-Alt-F3 to another virtual terminal and restated the desktop from there. Observed the firewallstate in Conky again. I jumped to the 1st virtual terminal (Ctrl-Alt-F1) where top is running and now I can see the firewallstate. This time I "killed" the process and return to view Conky. It is now REMOVED.

Hope this clarifies what have been observed. This may be considered a bug.

@ gc, What can I say? I just did this 4 times (once in ram - new session). All you really need to do is rightclick the bottom 'quit & exit) and look under the bonnet (whoops - still in UK speech), that is, lxtask or the like and voila! no entry for firewall. Before you restart...
I wrote:

. Rebooted three times and no firewall.

All files had the correct entries for uk keyboard but still '@' and '"' were reversed until 'uk' re-selected using mouse/keyboard wizard. So there must be something else maybe in /var if not /tmp or /run.

I've noticed other things behaving this way, for example, pulse audio settings need to be reset across several boots till it settles down. I also understand that, despite what's in the script, snapmergepuppy disregards var and tmp altogether when first making the save file. There's also the fact that I have the old consolekit, It works, but not like consolekit2 is supposed to (it downright refuses if logged in as root) so there are also some permission issues. Slackware64-14.2 may be 'stable' now, but puppylinux running it is still experimental. Peebee's provisos apply even more-so with Just-Lighthouse.

So, I will try to come up with a config file that gets applied from ~/Startup. Might take some time to figure out the commandline codes!!

Do you mean changing 'gb' tp 'uk' was the solution?

I stumbled around in the dark after reporting on the slacko thread without success and struck gold, very pleased with myself I was too!

Thanks also, ally.

here's a pet that might help (change made to ~/.xinitrc and /usr/sbin/countrywizardjs
also fix in /etc/profile which cleans up dialog box fonts.

Also, last YAD pet is fixed here.
