Why do you think that?
Or Xorg? Do you have a graphic card? There is something with intel gc:

Have you seen others report this problem? I haven't found any so far.

Your setup to boot looks okay btw.

I read:

http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=978419#978419

There was a bug in jwm when these builds were published. I'm using jwm 2.3.5 from xenialpup64 and until now the shutdown is ok.

That's the same reference as mine! I thought freezes occurred anytime in this case.

I haven't used the slackos of micko much. I found them not very solid (I expect stability from slacko! Wink )
I use the more recent builds from Sailor (64bits) and norgo (32bits) from april. They should have a lot more fixes from woof CE.

I have intel graphic card. My problem seems to be fixed by choosing modesetting in xorgwizard.

I did a new install to a 32GB flash drive for older Acer desktop PC:

A friend of mine is a volunteer and help a lot of senior citizens in our community if they get into computer troubles. He say due to the large screen many older people use laptops, where forgotten passwords next to lost wi-fi are major concerns. From his knowledge web-mail (~ Gmail) and browser based communication with health providers, tax authorities, social security, online banks and digital mailboxes, together with reading online newspapers, Facebook and watching streamed media are the common use of the laptops. Looking at stored photos taken with cameras and mobile phones also is popular.

With this in mind I made a full install of Slacko 700 RC3 K4.4.70-PAE 2018-08-19 on a former Vista Toshiba Satellite dual core laptop.

I found:

1) connecting to wi-fi a breeze
2) with puplet CamPhoneTab-1.6 + libgcrypt11 installed mounting two different mobile phones was uncomplicated and made it easy to drag and drop folders from phone to storage (a primary partition defined at setup).
3) Firefox 52 OK, GetFlash OK, Image viewer, YouTube / Gmail etc. OK
3) however, if iso burned to CD no boot ("Cannot find slacko_6_9_9_9.sfs" error), had to install via USB.The Puppy Package manager did not connect to repositories, package manager not reckognising rpm's, Firefox Quantum and Seamonkey will not run, even with gtk+ 3-3.4.4 installed (via package manager).

Pup-SysInfo reported: Linux Kernel: 4.4.70 (i686) meltdown: No kernel mitigation spectre_v1: No kernel mitigation spectre_v2: No kernel mitigation.

Info just to maintainers, if any exist.

could you explain a little bit more exactly please.

Did you get this message from installer ?
What's the name of this SFS at your burned CD.
Should be puppy_slacko_6.9.9.9.sfs
is this correct in your case ? ( or did you burn your cd with option "replace dots by underscores") Smile

PPM is okay, maybe something with mimetypes
temporary workaround for installation of RPM's please use commandline
Code:
petget +mypackage.rpm


PPM offered version of Seamonkey works without problems
required dependencies: seamonkey-solibs-2.49.4, at-spi2-atk-2.18.x, at-spi-core-2.18.x, ,gtk+3-3.18.x

Hi Norgo - you are of course right, the faulty boot message was as you mention "could not find puppy_slacko_6.9.9.9.sfs". Similar messages are plenty when attempting to boot Puppy distributions from CD, where the same CD will work on one computer while not on another, I have found.
I found a workaround for "the retired persons" Linux and made a small tutorial for a setup, you could take a look here

http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=114268

It is a fine thing if you proceed in efforts to maintain Slacko. Myself I will stick to test the workaround (where I'm quite sure PupSysInfo2.8 in some way leak memory / interfere with other applications). Have a nice day!
