Yes,I have tryed both in Pfind and Picker and haven't been able to clean these files out.In fact I even tryed sending them to "
Trash" and then Deleting them,but on reboot,I ended up with more files than I started with ! Yikes ! Something very cryptic going on here but maybe this is because I am running live ?cheers

No, you should still be able to delete things.

What on earth do you mean when you say you ended up with more than you started with? Where are they?

Yes, I think those are in one of puppy's read-only files. But how did they get there? Have you remastered Puppy with them?
If so, I think you will see the same files in multiple places (e.g. /usr/bin as well as /initrd/pup_ro2/). This does not mean you have more than one copy - you are just seeing the same copy in more than one place, because of Puppies unioned filesystem.
I suspect they did not multiply when you deleted them - perhaps you imagined it, or maybe Pfind wasn't displaying them all the first time (occasionally for me it only loads some of the search results, and I have to click the show all button to get it to reload the list).

I knew I couldn't fool you disciple Wink ,yes,I did remaster ,and the reason was I had added (and got working) Very Happy two other programs with the help of plinej and big_bass ,Audacity and Ardour2.Since both of these programs required additional dependencies I didn't want to destroy them due to some insanity as I had done several times already and had to start again with a "clean install". In the case of all the missfires I had made with rosegarden,I didn't realize all this excess baggage was being saved as well when I remastered.So now I am at the point that I feel I must delete all this confusion that I have created before I can get back to the task at hand of trying to get rosegarden playing with Puppy 4.Since initrd and pup_save.2fs are both hard coded files on the hard drive ,There must be some way to backup these files and do some cleaning of them.? This is where I am sorely lacking in experience.
The reason for all of this is I am trying to build a version of Puppy 4 with these duplex programs that are able to play and record at the same time ,both analog and midi.Some way of coiverting .mp3s and .wavs and vice versa are required also which would make Puppy 4 a natural for the "home recordist" where in one forum I visit has over four thousand members ,some of which record soundfiles and post them.I just feel Puppy four would be a natural.cheers,bill

This is just a minor fix for full compatibility with Pfilesearch 1.11

Subject description: good apps should come with their own icon!
 

Zigbert and ttuuxxx (and a few others) are in the habit of providing excellent apps which often come without an icon of their own. Of course you can always find one yourelf somewhere and put that in the docking bar but IMHO good apps need an ' official' icon...

Hello zigbert,
Looks like another great app!
I tried running it in Puppy 2.14 and got these error.
I tried creating the missing file in /tmp but each time i did, it appears to claim another file is missing. any ideas on getting it to working?


pfind is a fast and good tool but these error messages appear here at 4.3.0/1 too -- export VERSION="4.15"

it seems that I could fix it by :

Code:
case $EXIT in
   0) echo ;;
   98) configure ;;
   *)       if [ -f /tmp/searchresult$PROGPID ]; then rm -dr /tmp/searchresult$PROGPID
      if [ -f /tmp/pfind*$PROGID ]; then rm /tmp/pfind*$PROGPID
      fi
      fi
      exit ;;
esac


at the lines 361+ and ~450+
