Sub_title: Puppy 5.6 multisession CD
 

I disabled "shudtown save" by editing shutdown file. I removed "save" icon from the desktop.

Everything is fine with my setup - although I have one disturbance, that is the "quick setup" menu appearing on every boot.

When I saved my first session, it did not appear in the next boot.

After I removed "shutdown save" and "save icon", the "quick setup" menu started to appear again.

Is there any practical way to remove it from the start, while it can remain as a program that can be used for times that it can be needed?

Or - I can delete the quickstart file from the system.

If there is no way I can disable it from launching at start and no way to get rid of it - no problems.

I am just trying to prevent that I can click mistakenly for an insecure setup when I can not realize - or I will have to reboot if I realize.

Just trying to make the almost perfect live CD for my usage.

Which version of Puppy, and is this is a multisession CD you've made by saving the first session to the CD?

Yes - Puppy 5.6. Multisession. I do not want it to be multisession actually. I will finalize the DVD after completing the setup no to save anything. I had to save one time as a test. Or did I have to remaster without making the first save? Any suggestion?

I just do not want to see the quick setup in every boot.

I don't know about remastering from a multisession. I've never tried it.

As for your question about disabling the "Quick Setup" menu, I don't know the answer to that either. Embarassed

If you are making a custom Puppy just for your own use, I'd stick with multisession. I've saved settings for one computer on a multisession Puppy, then booted that multisession disk in a different computer. If I remember right, when Puppy realized that the settings were wrong for the computer it found itself in, it offered the "Setup" menu again. Try it.

For what it's worth, it's a good idea to use a CD-RW (or better yet, a rewritable DVD) for experimenting with multisession and remastering Puppy. Multisession Puppy runs fine from a rewritable CD or DVD, and Puppy has several ways to blank and reuse a rewritable disk. I'm not sure about a CD, but both Burniso2cd and Pburn will burn a rewritable DVD without having to blank it first. Smile

Thanks for taking time to reply, at least.

There are many ways, but all involve customizing of the main puppy sfs file

The easiest way I can think of:
Expand the main Puppy file (unsquashfs puppy_whatever.sfs) . In the resulting squashfs-root directory go to squashfs-root /var/local and create an empty file delayedrun_firstboot_flag. Repack the main file with mksquashfs squashfs-root puppy_whatever.sfs. That's it.

This will suppress the quicksetup and the welcome screen after booting.

Here is what happens at startup (I hope I get this right):

After starting X Puppy runs /root/.xinitrc.
.xinitrc calls /usr/sbin/delayedrun
If the file /var/local/delayedrun_firstboot_flag does not exist, then delayedrun calls quicksetup and welcome1stboot and then creates /var/local/delayedrun_firstboot_flag. This file will be saved when you create a savefile, so you will no be bothered by quicksetup when you use a savefile.
After delayedrun exits, program flow returns to .xinitrc and finally .xinitrc calls the window manager.

Or, if you prefer the comfort of doing things in GUI, do a search on this forum for "EditSFS-2.1.5.pet".

Thanks for the details, Mochimophel.

Anikin - A GUI would be better. I will be trying both.
