Lucid 5.10 bypasses the Classic Configuration Experience(CCE) and invites me (the user) to assess the display and accept either what has been received or choose the CCE if it isn't acceptable. It's acceptable, I click OK to show that, then shut down the system, creating my personal lupusave.2fs. When I reboot I am unexpectedly confronted with the CCE menus. Can one of the principals (01Micko/playdayz/Barry) responsible for Lucid explain this anamoly and what should I do? This “straight to the desktop” is supposed to be a major coup but it is flawed.

On the initial LiveCD boot, Menu ->System ->Hardware info ->Display shows my monitor's resolution as 1024x768. Following the boot after the pupsave and forced CCE, this same display shows it as 800x600. My system has a 8245G/GL1 [Brookdale-G1]/GE for which the desktop blub recommends the driver Xorg_High.pet. I don't anticipate a pressing need for this but could someone please post a link?

This sounds important. Can you post it in the main bugs list here.

http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=58630

More people will see the problem then.

We will need more info--and as icpug suggested you could post in the Bugs forum.

If you booted with a Live CD and then shut down and created the lupusave file--then Lucid Puppy 5.1 should reboot directly to the desktop. Is this the situation? Actually it automatically reconfigures itself each time you reboot--this is one advantage to booting directly to the desktop--you can change hardware easily. It automatically reconfigures itself each time, that is, unless you run the CCE. Another 'advantage' of booting directly to the desktop is that it gives two chances to get it right: the auto config and the CCE config are two different systems--in your case unfortunately it sounds like the auto config got it right and the CCE didn't.

If you could please describe how you booted Puppy we might be able to figure out why it malfunctioned. Thanks.

BTW, I just rebooted the Live CD, used it, and saved to a lupusve as I shutdown. i rebooted directly to the desktop--this has been repeatedly tested of course, so the assumption is that there was something unusual about your circumstance--which we need to figure out.
