Subject description: Caused serious issues
 

I installed the Java JDK via SFS4. Immediately after, I lost my pinboard, I can't get the Package Manager to load, and basically, I have to do everything through the terminal. I'm not exactly sure what caused this. I'm having to use Windows for now. Puppy runs fine without loading a save file or any SFS files, so idk, but I can't get in to uninstall or unload the .sfs files

Hello, Evil20071.

The window manager menu may still be working, even if you do not have a ROX-pinboard or backdrop. If so, in the menu, go to

System > Config > Bootmanager

click on the sfs button

remove the entry for the java.sfs

reboot.

I hope this helps.

Boot without using the savefile, then delete or rename the Java SFS. Reboot.

Tried it. Nothing. It will at least let me open the SFS Load on the Fly... However... There's nothing loaded... Sad

It seems as though it's everything with ROX has just crapped out and won't load. I'm beginning to think it's just a coincidence that it happened after I loaded that .sfs now... I can load programs from Firefox by browsing to the folder they're in, but I can't get ROX to load anything. Since the pinboard is ROX as well, that may be it, though the question is still "What caused it?"

Are there any alternatives to ROX that I could try to install just to test, or possibly a .pet of ROX?

Ok... I can manually open a ROX menu from the terminal. What should I do from here?

Have you tried from a terminal,
"sfs_load -u name_of_sfs_file?
That should work if the file in question was an SFS file of JAVA.

8bit: The problem I'm having is that the desktop/file manager doesn't load.

The roxfiler resides in the directory
/usr/local/apps/ROX-Filer
and called by
cat /usr/local/bin/rox
#!/bin/sh
exec /usr/local/apps/ROX-Filer/AppRun "$@"

script (usually) .

If some of these are broken, then you would need to restore it somehow . The easiest way would be in creating a new save-file.3fs .

Code:
rox -p /root/Choices/ROX-Filer/PuppyPin

is the usual command to restore the pinboard if the ROX-Bins and libs and everything is ok .
This command had been in Puppy 431 in the script
/usr/sbin/fixitup

I can't get it to re-load the pinboard that way at all, however, I can get into a ROX-Filer window using the command for that...


EDIT: Scratch that. I had to use the following:

Code:
sh-4.1# /usr/local/apps/ROX-Filer/AppRun -p /root/Choices/ROX-Filer/PuppyPin


That got my pinboard back up and running again.
