Sub_title: Troubles in the restore window
 

I have made a full working install of LuPu V5.2.5 with a lot
of my favorite progs loaded and don't want to have then deleted

I had a crash with the playing around and reboots etc.

I just can't get back into my desktops again. I am prompted to
key in xorgwizard then select res etc only to have the return prompt
again, type in xwin only to return the prompt again.

In with the wizard again, round and round I go!

What files,directories scripts etc -- Where is all this info stored?

I have also tried the live CD but the save.fs keep building up!


Help,help please.

Run fsck on save-file|full install from LiveCD

check "readlink -f `which X`"

The files for Xorg are in "/etc/X11/" and the main files are "xorg.conf|xorg.conf.bak|xorg.conf.${CHIP}${MONITOR}"

When xwin fails use "less /tmp/xerrs.log" for cryptic details at the prompt .

I am guessing , that corrupted files in /dev/.udev prevented the modprobe 'ing of some kernel drivers .

"lsmod" should show .

Most likely you have corrupted file system.

Boot the Puppy live CD with option puppy pfix=ram

Open a terminal (console icon on desktop)
File system check at terminal
Drive to be checked must be unmounted.
Drive id to reflect what drive to check.

e2fsck /dev/sda1
