Subject description: Will not creat save file on shut down or reboot after frugal install
 

But I do have 1 EVEN bigger problem Mark, I decided to do a fresh install of Muppy008 and be more selective in the stuff i added as with a 446MB distro and most everything included - should be no way i filled a 2G stick in 3 days. So fdisk /dev/sda1 delete make new part. and then write - make bootable and do frugal install of Muppy008. SO fa all good - only problem is when i try to turn off the mup a black screen rolls halfway up the screen stops and thats it. no chance to make a pu_save file all info and work lost. Ok so try again get it where i want it and do reboot this time, screen goes black as expected but then it just stays there. Never gives me ANY options or moves off the black screen - and yes comp power is STILL on. All work lost again. I LOVE MUPPY008 - but will have to give it up if i cant save ANYTHING and have to start fresh EVERY time. Any Ideas - I'll try em ALL to keep the mupster running tis laptop.



I have WAY to much customizing done to turn this thing off unti i Know it will save. So this puter will be on unti I get a Solid answer. HMMMMM maybe Mark will even get a up runtime test out of this, oh and wirelss in MUPPY008 - 110% easier than puppy 3.01 - and yes i love the original but without it we would have these powerr packed versions like Muppy008.....

when in X right after start, open a console, type "sync".
Then exit X.
Hit CTRL-ALT-Backspace.
Then type "reboot".

There were issues in the first 008 not exiting X properly,that was solved later.

Or replace /usr/X11R7/bin/wmreboot with this one:

Code:
#!/bin/sh
#introduced v0.9.8
#called from /root/.fvwm95rc, .jwmrc at shutdown.

umount /minisys
echo -n "reboot" > /tmp/wmexitmode.txt
sync

killall muppywm

sleep 2

PSLIST="`ps`"
kill `echo "$PSLIST" |grep "X "|grep -v "grep"|sed "s/^\ *//"|sed "s/ .*$//"|head -n 1`
#exec killall X
killall X #default is SIGTERM.
sleep 1           #v1.0.7
#exec killall -9 X #v1.0.7 make sure X is killed.
 killall -9 X
#after exit from X, there is a return to /usr/X11R7/bin/xwin,
#which reads /tmp/wmexitmode.


I just have set up our new FTP-Server today, so maybe we'll upload 008.3 today.
We found some more, quite severe bugs related to Firefox/Unionfs, and also must fix some last issues with Minisys, what caused the delay.
We'll check our new changes today, if they are ok, I can buils the Isos.
Mark

That can be ignored.
Where did you enter that text?

It should replace the text in the file:
/usr/X11R7/bin/wmreboot
You can edit it in the Texteditor.

Then in theory, you should be able to do a proper reboot from the Menu.

---------------
An upgrade from 008 to 008.3 will not work I fear, as newer versions use a different naming convention.
But you can try it, make a copy of your pup_save.2fs
It then must be called msy_save.2fs
Then when you use that, it should be upgraded.
Myself, I don't trust the upgrade-mechanism.
I always start from new.
Then I click on my old save-file in the Filemanager, to mount it.
Then I copy to the new system the folders:

/mnt/..../root/.mozilla
/mnt/..../root/.opera
/mnt/..../root/.sylpheed-2.0
/mnt/..../root/Mail
/mnt/..../root/.gtfp
/mnt/..../root/my-downloads



These folders store settings for Web, EMail and FTP (Bookmarks, Passwords).

Then I install my favourite dotpups.
Usually, this way of "upgrading" takes only some minutes, and you start with a "clean" system.

I plan to write a wizard for that in some weeks, to make it even simpler.
