Use frugal method to install TazPuppy without wiping a whole partition. Use save to folder if TazPuppy was installed on a Linux partition.

PostPosted: Tue 21 Apr 2020, 15:15    Post subject: Should be running in PUPMODE=13.  

A new clean frugal install of TazPuppy Beta 50 on SanDisk UltraFit USB Flash drive booting in UEFI mode. I created a new Save Folder. All software so far is working well. Only addition is I have installed Palemoon 28.9.1.

The problem I am having is that it is running in PUPMODE=12, instead of 13. I have pmedia=usbflash in the kernel line. It also boots the same if I remove pmedia statement. I have set Save Manager to +0 to Ask at Shutdown, but as PUPMODE is 12 it has no effect.

Why is it booting in this PUPMODE? How can I get it to boot PUPMODE=13?

Thanks in advance.

To achieve PUPMODE 13 it requires large ram, the computer has a battery, and the battery was in good health.

It's a Dell Latitude 3350 Laptop with i5-5200U CPU with 8GB RAM also 8GB Swap on internal SSD, the battery is good (capacity is down a bit) . Earlier iterations of TazPuppy woud boot to PUPMODE 13 on this laptop.

Does the battery of your computer was detected by the kernel?

Other than it appears in dmesg, I don't know how to tell.

Code:
tux@TazPuppy:~$ dmesg|grep battery
ACPI: Deprecated procfs I/F for battery is loaded, please retry with CONFIG_ACPI_PROCFS_POWER cleared
ACPI: Battery Slot [BAT0] (battery present)


I've done some testing on older tazpuppies, on Beta 35 with kernel 4.14.150 save2flash was OK. On Beta45 with 4.14.156 (which is same as current kernel) save2flash was OK. So it appears that between Beta 45 and Beta 50, something has changed on how PUPMODE is being set.

The dmesg output checking for battery was the same on all versions that I checked.

PostPosted: Wed 29 Apr 2020, 19:34    Post subject: PUPMODE=13 set correctly  

So far just a quick test to check PUPMODE, it is now being set to 13,shutdown and save2flash now OK.

Thanks mistfire, will continue and set up and test further.

Edit: I spoke too soon. Nothing is being saved. Created new document in /home/tux/Documents. Added Application Launchers to Panel. None of these are being retained over Shutdown/Reboot. I have manually ran save2flash as tux and root, it appears to run. I've checked with changing save interval to 0 or +0. No changes as stated above are retained. I have done multiple shutdown and reboots.

Note: I created a symlink to palemoon in /usr/bin and added a palemoon.desktop to /usr/share/applications and added an icon. These changes have been retained. So, it appears that changes within /home/tux aren't being saved.

This as a new clean frugal install on USB Flash drive, with a new save folder.
