All seems nice, yes the first start popped up again, it also has a fault, country settings appears to be broken, see image.


just want to know how you post screenshots. the automatic code provided in the forum editor does not work at all.


First you have to upload your screenshot to a hosting service such as Tinypic, then insert a link to it in your post in this forum.

I coudn't reproduce the wbar issue on my (very fast) machine. You might be able to fix it by adding a longer delay before starting wbar.

I don't recommend cairo dock to be installed by default unless you want your puplet to only work on fast computers.


i worked out what the problem was. the new wbar puts a start script in the startup folder. the old one needed to be added to the .xinitrc file as mentioned in the wikka post. click here i removed the line from the .xinitrc file and replaced the line wbar & in the file /root/startup/wbar-start with it now all is working ok. a slight edit.

Hi Jemimah

Couple of observations on 016:

1. many thanks for providing an 015-016 delta file - but - it's not quite setup right as it doesn't find the old 015 iso and if you do drag and drop manually it created newfile.iso instead of 016.iso.....

2. if you click "blacklist module" in Boot Manager from Control Panel -> Configure Kernel modules you get a screen telling you about xdialog which is very interesting but isn't the blacklist gui.....

BTW - my previously provided Broadcom-STA pet still works fine in 016.

Cheers
peebee

In a previous post i asked these questions that Got missed so to clarify
EDIT wait i am still using 1.5 atm. i must update now to see current changes. EDIT

how to load sfs files at boot up
the boot up manager has been removed a handy feature.
solution can load sfs on fly or create customised adrive.sfs solution

create customised sfs for different tasks
I was wanting to have customised sfs for loading different things at boot either for different tasks etc. can i modify the saluki setup to be able to load not only adrive but bdrive.sfs, cdrive.sfs etc (or preferably rename them to office.sfs, internet.sfs etc) so if they are in /mnt/home directory they will load like adrive and zdrive do currently.
solution use the custom builder to make the sfs i want > rename it > load on fly solution

lighthouse pup loading up to 40 .sfs files at boot
an option i liked when i used lighthouse pup. They provide sfs files more than pets because of this feature. when booting and detecting files it would show what sfs files where going to boot and ask for clarification if i wanted to boot or change anything. or add others. I heard in the forums somewhere that the person who created this handy feature did not share how it was done, others can't work it out so it did not become a general feature. its just something cool and unique to Lighthouse pup i guess. just sad lighthouse pup is now on hold.
solution can load sfs on fly or create customised adrive.sfs solution

These are things I was wondering, in writing the post i came up with the solutions. can anyone expand or clarify things a bit.

PostPosted: Mon 26 Mar 2012, 07:53    Post subject: Saluki "restore point" and "clean up" / "snap shot"  

I am in the process slowly building my own customized saluki. Which means that I creaste 3fs, make a backup of it, then tweak something, see if it has the desired effect (reboot) and if itstill has the desired effect, make a backup of this 3fs again, and then on to the next step.

In this way I can always go back to the previous 3fs if something gets damaged. It is similar to the windows restore point.

But in windows it is easier to create /restore an ealier state of the os. I wonder if such a functionality can be built into saluki or into another puplet

On a similar level:

one of the more annoying problems in my current lucid puppy 525 2fs is that it often slowly fills up and then I have to figure out which folders are growing. Usually it is ome kind of tmp or cache. but it can also be something else. It can be time consuming to figure out which folder is the culprit.

What I would love to have is some kind of program which informs me which folders in a given folder tree, or on a drive, have been growing (shrinking) or created new (or deleted) since the last snapshot

I know there are complete backup tools like snap2 but those do more than I need

HiDeHo

Have you read the forum posts on how to edit the init file to use more than 6 sfs?

If finding the posts is the problem then I sympathise! The only thing to do is save interesting posts to a file and lose them on your own disk drive! It is easier to find them on your own disk drive than here! I have it somewhere.

I think Tazoc, who is ill and cannot support Lighthouse at the moment, embellished it a bit for Lighthouse but maybe a read of the Lighthouse init file will give a clue how the embellishments were done.

What about hotbackup?
http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=49999

To track down what's hogging your save file, install gdmap, and open the directory /initrd/pup_rw. You get a nice graphical representation of all the files and directories in your save file.
