I have been trying without much luck to find a Puppy that works on my latest Dell Inspiron 15R Sandy Bridge i5-2430 laptop with Intel HD3000 integrated graphics 1366x768. I am so glad I came across fatdog64 520b6. Everything just works out-of-the box except for WiFi. For WiFi, I just had to drop the latest Intel iwl firmware for N-1030 in /lib/firmware and reboot. The firmware is here http://intellinuxwireless.org/iwlwifi/downloads/iwlwifi-6000g2b-ucode-17.168.5.2.tgz. I replaced xine with vlc as default media player. I really love my fatdog64 520b6! It becomes my main OS, now. I Virtualbox into my Windows XP whenever I need to run Windows. VBox XP on fatdog64 is amazingly fast on my new Sandy Bridge laptop, stuffed with 8G of RAM.

There is a little bug in /etc/init.d/sfs_load, which causes the usb (or other device) in frugal install is mounted at boot.
Must be:
[ "$1" = "start" -o "$1" = "stop" ] && exit

I cannot understand what is the problem.
At boot, 'sfs_load start' is excuted and it may search unloaded sfs in case some is registered but not loaded. Otherwise sfs_load does nothing.

You can stop the script by the service manager or manually strip off the excutable permission bit If you do not want to run the script.

Further discussion is welcome at another topic.

'sfs_load start' at the function mountpart() mount the partition and set UNMOUNTME
.....
UNMOUNTME=""
mount $OPT /dev/$PART /mnt/$MPART || return
UNMOUNTME=/dev/$PART
MNTPNT=/mnt/$MPART

but do not unmount the partition after.
I work in PUPMODE=5
