There is almost never a ydrv. So this is additional to the regular pristine frugal.

What should the test be?
Just boot?
On older/newer machines?
Older/newer Puppys?

btw, this is dpupStretch RC4 with the ydrv.
Boots just normally. Keyboard, mouse, wifi good.

Hi peebee,

Test conducted on a Dell e6400 based laptop

Downloaded and renamed ydrv to ydrv_upupbb_19.03.sfs and copied into directory with the upupbb_19.03 files

Booted upupbb_19.03 as frugal install with no save file or save directory.
ydrv loaded during boot. No hangs.

It produced the /dev/disk/ directory with 5 subdirectories, attached a screeny of /dev/disk/
I can do a tree of the whole directory structure if you need to see that.

LxPupSc_19.06 & ScPup64_19.01 using my 4.14 kernels (.134-32 & .131-64).
Both booted & mounted other drives ok. Both had 3 folders under /dev/disk - by-id; by-uuid & by-partuuid.
When usb stick inserted, by-path appeared - disappeared when usb stick withdrawn.

Even in older rc.sysinit. The proposed lines of code works fine for me.

The attached files might be useful for wdlkmpx and other woof-CE developers.

In EasyOS, I simplified udev in rc.sysinit years ago, also took out 'udevadm settle'.

Instead of waiting for that "settle", just charge ahead, and have put some waits in elsewhere. For example, wait for the kernel video drivers to load in /usr/bin/xwin.

It seems to work OK.

Note that there is a lot of code in rc.sysinit that is different from the woof-CE version, as I forked my woofQ from woof2 ...I think about 6 years ago... for Quirky and then EasyOS, and there has been gradual divergence.

Anyway, the udev part might give some ideas to the woof-CE developers.

I noticed that using the revised rc.sysinit. The boot time was longer by 20 seconds. Setting the udevadm settle timeout to 1-3 second is enough to kick start the udev properly
