TazPuppy beta 11 released

Changes:
* cookutils is now allowed to install on TazPuppy. This will cook and create slitaz packages (requires devx sfs)
* Progress bar is now shown by default when recharging package database
* Some fixes on freememtray_applet
* Improved USB tethering. It is now plug and play
* Improved networking. Just plug the LAN cable to the computer and the Tazpuppy will automatically obtain IP address from the router or DHCP server if no static ip is assigned.
* More bugfixes

I hope that someone here are willing to test the make-devx command. In order to find if the script for making devx module works.

just some quick observations whilst running the make-devx

I lost the toolbar, luckily I had a terminal open so was able to command a reboot, the slitaz right click does not bring a full menu

also it took an age to create a 1Gb savefile, powered off after about 4 minutes so I could report back on the devx

Smile

edit: deleted and reinstalled, savefile (4gb this time) went without a hitch

I had just done a new frugal install prior to seeing this. Shutdown seems to work OK but reboot just hangs.

I did the command as advised but it does not appear to fix issue.

Code:

root@TazPuppy:~# killall ethmon
killall: ethmon: no process killed
root@TazPuppy:~# mv -f /usr/bin/ethmon /usr/bin/ethmon.bak


Still unable to reboot, shutdown is OK

@TerryH after you follow the procedure did you try to test reboot after you shutdown the system and start again? On my latest experiment the ethmon is now one-shot script, no longer looping. Both reboot and shutdown works but it cant logout. I will try to resolve it as well as auto start of crashed lxpanel.

New clean frugal install of beta 12 on Sandisk Ultra Fit USB Flash drive.

Initial setup and shurdown/reboot working fine now (twice each).

I have noticed an issue with pcmanfm, in beta 11 and also 12, which wasn't happening on earlier betas. When I change preferences, I set to open with single click and also use Detailed List View. The single click is not being saved over restarts, the view mode is being remembered as set, but the check box for single click is not being saved as it was set. All other changes during session are saved correctly.

My original intention was to post a nice screenshot of the desktop of tazpuppy beta 12, as I usually set up my systems. Unfortunately during the desktop setup I found an issue with Save Manager setting. Setting the Save Interval to +0 does not function correctly for shutdown/Reboot. The shutdown dialogue is not displayed, the screen is dark with backlight on for about a minute (does it timeout?), then shutdown or reboot occurs. The Save / No Save dialogue is not displayed. The changes made during the session are not saved.
Setting Save Interval to 0 or -0 functions as expected.

Note: This function was working prior to beta 11. It may have been the issue I was experiencing with shutdown not functioning correctly with beta 11.

@Terry H I noticed that dialogs upon shutdown works on PUPMODE 5 or savefolder. But when the savefile was loaded, the messages and dialogs dont work upon shutdown we need some in-depth research to find out what is the main cause of this problem on loaded savefile. I hope that someone in this forum can figure out this problem

This is not what I am experiencing. I only use a save folder and boot with pmedia= ataflash, so PUDMODE = 13. To alleviate this issue, i have set save interval to -0, to not save at all and do manual saves if needed.
