Well, I'm really close...custom boot image, hacked away on the menu, themes, images, looks great, very fast, etc...then the pc I was using today: complete hard drive crash! Awesome...today was spent being data recovery guy... Confused Almost got it totally back, though...

Anyway, have had some issues getting it to start in fluxbox...at first, had to make sure /etc/windowmanager wasn't getting changed...xwin fluxbox is the only thing that will start it...I'm going to try modifying /root/.xinitrc to exec xwin fluxbox...any suggestions/comments on that would be helpful.

Gotta have /etc/windowmanager and /root/.xinitrc both set with startfluxbox, that fixed it.

But now wmexit, wmreboot, restartwm and wmpoweroff all give me this weird message and don't work...ugh...something about kill then giving options for that...something in the script. I'll try and figure that out and/or post back the error message...

I have an fbpager here, this is very useful for some wm and panels like fluxbox, pekwm, bmpanel2, and tint2 panel. Ask me if you want a pet. Smile

Great grimoire! Would you please post a link with explanation and post your pet? I'm not sure about what fbpager is, but it looks like it may be helpful...

Hey guys, I was messing around with this new remake of puppy, and im totally diggin it, but, and its a small but so dont get mad at me, I was wondering if there were any tweaks to make it boot faster.

I installed start up manager, installed all the missing dependencies, but i STILL cant get it to run. Figured there'd be a few tools there to play with.


So, if you guys could suggest anything, I'd be greatful.

Haven't run Start Up Manager before, but most things I would run from terminal by typing in the command and, if it didn't run, then it usually tells you why, missing library, etc.
