Hello,

- I made that chaneg to the menu.lst file however it is still in read only mode.

Getting this when booting:

.......................................
/etc/rc.d/rc.sysinit: line30: /etc/rc.d/PUPSTATE: Read-only filesystem
.......................................

- It must be something with that above? that is causing the system to boot in readonly mode.

Thanks for help,

Best regards,
Johan

Thanks MU,

- Seems to work now that message during bootup is now gone - excellent!

- However when changing settings to conky these settings are not saved after reboot?

- Also that question at bootup "keep it simple" or "shiny thing" is that something you can modify ?

So it saves the choice i make - so i dont need to make that choice at every bootup.

Thanks alot,

best regards,
Johan

I think you must edit /etc/conky/conky.conf

Is that, what you did?
Mark

Hello Again,

- No i edited using the menu then reloaded the conky and verified the change.

- However that menu item must edit the wrong conf file.

- Editing /etc/conky/conky.conf works - so thanks again.

- Do you have any clue on how to remove that question that always shows at bootup ("keep it simple" or "shiny things") ?

Best regards,
Johan

Hello,

Is there a way to get a trash can ?
It's the only thing I miss in this excellent pupplet (BTW, a great bravo to wow)

the puplet still contains Rox-Filer.
You could launch in from .xinitrc.
In this case, you had to deactivate the PCManfm desktop (right-click the desktop, look in the settings there).

Like this you could use the trash from Rox-filer.

You might have to play around with some settings, until you get optimal integration of LXDE and Rox-filer, as the system is optimized for LXDE/PCmanfm.

PCManfm is following the freedesktop.org specifications, and based on .desktop files in /usr/share/applications and the standard MIME system.
Rox-filer uses own versions,
Puppy uses a lot of tweaks to integrate Rox as a usefull desktop.
So in this puplet, it might not always work as expected.

Mark

Doesn't like my Medion MD8818 PC apparently.
After the first two lines, I expect something like unlzmaing, but the screen goes black.

A pity, as I would liked to see my sata and e-sata HDD's were supporte in this kernel.

@playdayz: I'll try to fix that multicore glitch.

@divisionmd: about conky, read bug/bugfix in page 2:
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=39154&start=15
To remove autostarted apps (shiny things) launch lxsession-edit. To add more apps to that list try to press the RightMouseButton over the desktop, choose "Add application shortcut", create a new launcher, copy the new launcher to /root/.config/autostart and run lxsession-edit again to enable/disable it.



@wkr: there's no trash can support in PCManFM, but if you want to use the Puppy Trash Can: disable "Manage Desktop" in PCManFM's preferences dialog, enable ROX's Pinboard in LXSessionEdit and restart X. Now just drag and drop file to the Trash icon.

@Béèm: I disabled some messages in kernel .config file to make it less verbose. But if you want to know what's going on please boot with loglevel=7. Example(grub):
Code:
kernel /ultrapup/vmlinuz loglevel=7 psubdir=ultrapup pfix=ram
