Hi Beem,

Since I didn't have a save file (per the instructions in the first post), I had to reboot and make one. After that, the .PET installed without a problem. With the .SFS file in the same folder as the save, I rebooted again, exited to prompt, and typed in "xwin gnome-session". However, it just ran Puppy normally.

I'm pretty sure the problem is that I am only supposed to make a save file after I install the .PET file. Unfortunately, I don't have enough RAM to do this.

EDIT: I forgot about the commands I was supposed to enter into the terminal. I just did them now, rebooted, and did the prompt thing, but this still doesn't work.

When you go into bootmanager and select 'choose which extra sfs files you want to load at boot' you get a second window. (with two panes)
Can you post a screen shot?

I've been getting segmentation faults in Evolution. It's not consistent, but seems to happen when opening a new message. Running Evolution from a terminal gives the following output:

Code:

OK, so it worked but...

with the pup_save file where I'm using the Gnome SFS, I've got a little problem. My wireless card no longer sees networks. I'm fine in my other pup save files though.

So, here's the error message I'm getting from the network setup.

Error!
Failed to raise interface wlan0.
Failed command was: ifconfig wlan0 up
Error returned was:
ifconfig: SIOCSIFFLAGS: Protocol error

Any help with this would be appreciated, especially since I want to migrate my mail in Evolution in Ubuntu to Puppy. Well, it's kind of pointless when I'm unable to find a network...

Sorry Malachi, I lost your post out of sight.
You should tick the box 'ignore above user selection,...........'
Or alternatively leave the box unticked and rename the rename the gnome-2.20.3-test2_410.sfs to gnome-2.20.3-test2.sfs.
This is the way I prefer to work.
Reason there are sfs files which goes with more then one version of puppy.

@jcagle: My knowledge about wireless networks is almost nothing.
However, I can give you few ideas.

1. This SFS uses udev to dynamically add/remove device nodes in /dev. Perhaps udev has created the device node for wlan0 with a different name (wlan0_renamed??)

2. Firmware wasn't installed (udev again ...)

3. Tell us more about your hardware and Puppy version.

4. google

It's Puppy 4.1.1
I'm using a Broadcom BCM4318 (Airforce One 54g) built in wireless on my Acer Aspire 3690.

I'm thinking it is a udev issue, considering all the udev error messages I get when booting up. There's just too many of them to list them all, I'm not even sure if I see them all on screen.

Puppy 4.1 tries to start udevd is udev is installed, I removed udevd and pup_event_backend lines in /etc/rc.d/rc.sysinit to avoid problems with udev (rc.udev) service.

To fix those error message you must add more groups with the 'addgroup' command. Example:
Code:
addgroup lp
addgroup kmem
addgroup video
addgroup kmem
addgroup plugdev
addgroup cdrom
(can't remember more at the moment)

Restart udev to see if there're no missing groups:
Code:
killall udevd
/etc/rc.d/rc.udev start

Another thing that you can do is: run bootmanager to remove gnome.sfs from the list; reboot; and setup your wireless card.

Really digging this Gnome. Problem though. My wine games appear to work in this gnome...but not in jwm. but the thing is, after starting a game, when i'm done playing and restart X or the computer, my panels permanently disappear. amongst load up they blink about 6 times.....then blink out to not return until the next load up where i yet again get about 6 blinks then they blink out.

why does the games work in gnome but not jwm? i really just want to be able to play my wine gamehouse games even if it's jwm. preferable gnome though.

any help is appreciated...

I suppose that you start your wine games from those icons on the Desktop, Try to switch to jwm, start ROX-Filer, browse to /root/Desktop then you fill find those launchers, start your games from there.

Hope this helps
