Frugal install to HD on Dell Latitude E6400, all seems well, except for a small issue:

Waking from sleep mode produces high pitched beeps from the speakers.
This seems to be a new issue with the latest version.

I've tried disabling the Power Manager, but the problem persists.

@westwest try to swap kernel using kernel of other puppies. Just placed the vmlinuz beside the puppy_xslacko_4.4.sfs and copy the zdrv file of a corresponding puppy beside also the puppy_xslacko_4.4.sfs rename the corresponding zdrv file as zdrv_xslacko_4.4.sfs and you are good to go

My thoughts
I'm glad that some Puppy devs involved in Woof-CE noticed and considered my logic and stuffs here in Puppy Forum.

@kuman

Im not sure but you can try to install firefox.

did you put the main sfs files of x-slacko slim in a folder? if yes, specify the foldername on your bootloader settings using this

Code:
psubdir=[your folder name]

It takes me to a blue screen w 3 options - save, go to prompt, reboot. I've made a mistake, to put the .iso file in a folder while the others are not. Do i need to put the name of it in brackets? I did it at the prompt & it didn't work. I've not decompressed the .iso too.

@kuman11 brackets are only placeholder just substitute it with the folder name (without bracket) where the X-Slacko Slim is saved.

If you are using syslinux, just press tab in order to edit the boot settings, press enter to apply. for grub press e edit boot settings, press b or F10 to apply

I've swapped in the kernel from the latest Stretchpup, also from LxPupSc64.
Strange beeps persist upon waking from sleepmode...
