Hi CB88, I am using 3.01 frugal on a twin boot (with PClinuxOS) on two HDD's
I followed instructions on unzipping etc and ran program.
Whilst it does boot faster the following does not work
No internet (No Ethernet card detected, I have 2)
No menus either by mouse click and also menu bar at bottom has disappeared. Gxine does not run.
At that point I gave up.
Hope this data is useful.
Thanks for your work in trying to get this on Puppy
Cheers

ok translated that and sent to luciano I think the problem is that some of the hardware detection got left out and zdrv.sfs is not being loaded correctly when drivers or codecs are needed...

Thanks CB88. I forgot to mention that first boot took 29 seconds. I then booted again in case things needed to sort themselves out a bit and that took 44 seconds to boot, only 8 seconds faster than normal Puppy. I think it spent a long while doing something with UnionFS or other.
Cheers

In Regular linux systens, ifup -a turn on the network and the direct load of the modules can do that without a hardware detection tool...

Please send the result of the command:
cat /etc/texasflood-modules

If you are using a hardware detection tool, please modify the line modules_in_first_stage='1' to modules_in_first_stage='0' in /etc/texasflood.conf !!! This can speed up your boot time...

send /var/log/texas-flood ...

Config file, hope this helps

#Texas Flood configuration file - /etc/texasflood.conf
#(c) 2007 Luciano Andress Martini
#Translated to English by: Chase Rayfield

#How to edit this file?
#This file contains the runtime variables for Texas Flood.
#It allow Texas Flood to optimize your machine for exactly your type of work.
#When you edit this file be careful so you do not adversely affect your system performance.
#Many conditions placed in this file can have two values 1 or 0.
#1 means yes and 0 means no.
#We hope you now feel comfortable editing this configuration file.

# [Hardware detection]

#Need to pre-load modules:
#Modules are normally only loaded after the second stage after the load
#of the graphical system or when the system is ready.
#some systems need to load a module even before Texas Flood is
#started because they do not have hardware detection.
modules_in_first_stage="0"

#Command to call modules if necessary:
modules_command_call="/sbin/texasflood-call-modules"

#It is recommended that you use UDEV for Texas Flood to function adequately.
#Use this variable to define the command used to run UDEV. If you don't have UDEV leave it blank.
#Caution: Never define a command that runs a program other than UDEV, it will break Texas Flood.
call_udev="/etc/init.d/udev start"

#It is possible to use an extra command to detect hardware weather UDEV is active or not.
#This is also useful for distributions that do not have UDEV.
#Example: command_to_probe_hardware='/sbin/hwsetup'
command_to_probe_hardware=""

# [Mount partitions]

#Presence of HAL
#Define the command that runs HAL here:
#Leave this variable blank of you do not have HAL.
call_hal=""

#Use a separate home.
#Yes, it is necessary to define this in order for Texas Flood to work.
#Leave this blank if your home is not in a separate partition.
#Use the /dev/hdaX format if you have a home partition.
home_partic=''

# [Memory]
#Use virtual memory?
swap="1"

#Define the tendency for the system to move programs into swap/virtual memory.
#Higher numbers are recommended for machines with low ram.
#Lower numbers are recommended for machines with lots of ram.
swappiness="60"

# [Stages and Priority]
#Define the stages that will be loaded and their priorities here:

#Stage 1: Stage one is directly linked to startup and initialization of the more basic components.
#NOTE: The priorities range from -20(highest) to 20 (lowest)
#Negative values define higher priorities as shown.
#Activate Stage 1:
S1="1"
#Priority of Stage 1:
S1_PRIORITY="0"

#Stage 2: Stage two is related to Xorg.
#NOTE: The priorities range from -20(highest) to 20 (lowest)
#Negative values define higher priorities as shown.
#Activate Graphical interface.
gi="1"
#Command to run the graphical interface:
gi_command="xwin"
#Priority of programs that run under Xorg.
xorg_prog_priority="-4"
#CPU priority that Xorg uses to draw graphics, produce animations or display videos.
xorg_video_priority="-20"

#Stage 3: Stage 3 occurs after X has completely loaded, if X is active.
#NOTE: The priorities range from -20(highest) to 20 (lowest)
#Negative values define higher priorities as shown.
#Activate stage 3:
S3="1"
#Process to be preloaded before Stage 3 starts:
#By default we put kicker which is the task bar for KDE.
wait_process="afterstep"
#Maximum time to wait for the process in tenths of a second.
#300 means 30 seconds.
limit_wp="300"
#Priority of Stage 3:
S3_PRIORITY="0"

# [Others]
#Activate network and internet support:
network="1"

#Define the keyboard map here:
keymap="us"

#Activate power management here:
acpi="0"
apm="0"

#Check disks? (Still in development)
check_disks="0"

#Activate Ultra DMA
udma="1"

# [Extra Commands]
#Literally, type which commands should be executed before Texas Flood loads below.
#If your system has presented any Problem.
