I think that error also appears when you have the module but not the device it is supposed to be used for. I had tried loading a Toshiba module on my Dell laptop and it gave me a "No such device" error, but the person I was helping ran it on his Toshiba and it worked fine.


yeah thats it I have the module it not being used

thanks pizasgood

the good news is it does shutdown correctly

I just need to know why not on an official puppy
this really needs to get fixed

Along with one or two others, I've been reporting this defect for years. This is a unique Puppy feature. In principle, a direct comparison of Puppy code with how other developers do things should provide the answer? But who am I to ....

Hi big_bass,
I have been one of the "few" who have had problems with shutdown; please see my post in this thread dated 27 jan 09.
So I downloaded your pup tonight and for the very first time my test PC shuts down and ctrl+alt+backspace reboots the x-server (rather than crashes the system) without needing to add acpi=force to grub.

As an aside it seems to boot much quicker than standard 410, 412, 420. Not sure how fair a comparison this is though. Sorry, very tired tonight but will try to time it tomorrow to compare.

Congratulations! Whatever you did, please keep it up! Smile

EDIT:
In the light of day I did a quick and dirty test and sorry but it doesn't boot any faster. Perhaps I was fooling myself by the speed at which the text flew by on the boot-up screen.
