I made a 1.0.5 ms Puppy with Burniso2cd. I chose to boot clean, without looking for the pup001 on my HD, and configured it the way I wanted. Then I downloaded Nathan F's grafpup into a directory I created: /root/Downloads. When I shut down, the many messages flashed by far too quickly to be of any use. The next time I booted, again choosing boot option 5, everything was configured as I had left it but there was no /root/Downloads directory or grafpup.

Am I doing something wrong, or do I not understand what I can and can't do in ms Puppy, or what?



Update: saved (or so I thought) to CD on shutdown for the second time and rebooted. This time nothing was saved at all.

Is there some way to slow down the shutdown program, or better yet step through it one item at a time?

PostPosted: Mon 03 Oct 2005, 06:06    Post_subject: I'm guessing the session time stamp is wrong- partial fix  

the number of lines to be saved out /tmp/finalshutdown.txt was 429 on my second clean reboot. that was just about everything even if it was not even looked at. small sample given...
Code:
2005-10-03-04-13/ghttpd/htdocs/images/folder.gif=ghttpd/htdocs/images/folder.gif
2005-10-03-04-13/ghttpd/README.txt=ghttpd/README.txt
2005-10-03-04-13/ghttpd/cgi-bin/quisp=ghttpd/cgi-bin/quisp
2005-10-03-04-13/ghttpd/cgi-bin/test.cgi=ghttpd/cgi-bin/test.cgi


The 00files.deleted is appended at the end and is found near the beginning of the same list, therefore duplicated.
Code:

2005-10-03-04-13/Choices/MIME-types/application_pdf (application_abs)
mkisofs: Error: 00files.deleted and 00files.deleted have the same Joliet name
mkisofs: Joliet tree sort failed.


remove this split line
LISTFINAL="$LISTFINAL
/root/00files.deleted"


from rc.reboot and that will fix that.

you can do that in /tmp/rc.reboot for now. maybe a service pack will help.
also this change should be made
Code:
mkisofs -D -J -R -C $SECT -M $DEV -new-dir-mode 0755 -graft-points -path-list /tmp/listfinalshutdown.txt  $MYDATE/$LOG=$LOG | cdrecord -multi -data -eject -v speed=4 gracetime=1 dev=ATAPI:$CDR  -

I'm using a new multisession dvd right now.
Yesterday I improved the scripts very much ...better put that up on the
News page.

It occurred to me that a file might get duplicated, so I put in a generic fix,
using "sort -u" -- the "-u" option means remove duplicate lines.

...ha ha, and just now I have looked at GuestToo's other thread, he has done
the same thing.

yes, that other one, about unmodified files being saved. I have that in my notebook to fix tonight.

I've made heaps of improvements, so I'll apply that fix for saving only
modified files, then later tonight I'll upload the new files for you guys to
look at.

By the way, this new ms dvd is working very well.
It creates just two tracks, and each session gets appended to the second
track, that is, the second track just grows until dvd is full
-- probably this will be very space-efficient.

Having two tracks, though, means Linux still gives some seek errors,
but only spits out a couple of lines of error warning at bootup and shutdown.

In theory, it is possible to get it down to one track... i think.
