The answer can be found here assuming that your stick is not formatted with a linux partition:
http://bkhome.org/blog/?viewDetailed=01731

Extract:
    When Puppy is installed to hard drive in what we call "frugal" mode, we have the choice of saving the session to either a file or to the entire partition. The same thing holds for Puppy installed on a USB stick.

    However, to save to the entire partition, it must be a Linux filesystem. It can't be done on a fat or ntfs partition.

    Of course, saving session to a file has it's advantages, such as you can have lots of them and they are easy to backup. But, they do have a size limitation, I think of about 4GB although I have never tested that.

    Saving to the entire partition is a kind of quasi-full-Linux-installation. You are using the entire partition to save your session, so you have available all the free space of that partition.


You could create a linux partition at the end of your stick but it would only be worth doing if the partition size exceeds the max savefile size.

If you are using a linux partition on the stick you could try removing the fsck code.

Hi ETP et al,

This short thread http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=65519 is on save file limitations, the 35GB record and how to automatically increase the intervals of change save file size options and may be of interest.


My regards

It is in third entry from top of page

Not sure if it will work since developer has discontinued use in current version of Slacko

Hope this helps you


Thanks. It worked. I don't know anything else.

Pnethood is broken. This is because nbtscan, it's major dependency is broken. It's failing to find windows 7 shares, (probably vista too). It intermittently finds XP shares, always finds UNIX-like shares. It's a very old code base and has just been hacked at over the years without actually being developed.

There are 2 alternatives and they both work.

1. YASSM by rcrsn51 (in the network section of "Additional Software" forum)

2. "Network" rox-app by kirk and jamesbond in Fatdog. I'll have to build a pet for that for testing.

Hi mick

The nicest networking implementation is the Places feature in Precise-Lxpup with Mate1.4 desktop from Jejy69....

It integrates all protocols (Samba, ftp, etc.) into a unified interface through the file manager.

Now if that could be somehow retrofitted to slacko that would be great Wink

Cheers
peebee

ETP ,

Thanks for your comments about saving to the entire partition.
Yes I am using a Linux formatted partition.
Have corrected original post to reflect that info. Thanks for correcting me.

My original post was pointing out that this option has shutdown problems.
It works, but has a shutdown problem.
It will not do a complete shutdown.
Also save icon on desktop does not work with this save option.
I refer to my original post.

Yeah would be nice but a bit out of the scope of rox.

-------------------------

EDIT:

Well, this app attached is as close as it gets for rox. It's a modified version of kirk and jamesbond's samba sharing rox app that's in FatDog.

This is an intended replacement for Pnethood

It's working fine with win7 and mac shares, haven't tested XP.

Just a warning.. don't do anything silly like deleting mounted directories! It's possible you may lose data on the mounted share. If something goes wrong, shut down the share, reboot puppy and then delete the problematic shared icon.
network_roxapp-0.1.pet

PostPosted: Sun 28 Oct 2012, 16:28    Post subject: Bugs  

I have had a problem using the latest SLAACKO Beta to save-session to the Live DVD.

Might want to look into this.

Also, there is still a bug in the FirstRUN version that is being used when there is a network card present on the PC system even though it may not be active at initial boot time..

Here to help

Hi Mick

Tried the pet on a pristine frugal install of Slack 5.4 Beta2.

Eventually found the network item in /network

Clicked - said it was scanning but nothing happened.

This is to a samba share called ATHOME running on my desktop under Slacko 5.3.3.

Is there something else I need to do?? Can't see any menu items....

The share worked fine from pnethood - see 2nd screenie.

Cheers
Peter

This alpha version is broken with plain XP shares. Mick's final version works much better.

Latest JRE works with Slacko 5.3.3, 5.4 does not recognize it on a bootable usb.
