livecd now instead of a save file. on Dell D430


slacko 54. RC2 does not load the swapfile/parttion. either with live cd or savefile.

With a savefile it does take some time not much for the cd to start in order for the desktop to appear.

I can't download Slacko RC2 to test, so please could someone test the language pack and tell if the bug is still present?:.

Esta bien?

Then the extra menu entries for programs that may or may not be installed don't show up in the latest Slacko, great. Very Happy Thank you, L18L! I'll let others know in the Spanish forum.

system has been up for about 8 hours, about 3 or 4 since I reformatted the drive and the problem with drive mounting has occurred again

take ages to mount when clicked

starting programs no problem, just mounting and opening drives

if anybody could point the way for troubleshooting I'd be grateful

Maybe a little more info about your HW, esp. drive(s).
Neither diamonds nor drives are forever - both are unstable! Ribbon cables and connectors can be twisted and swapped too often. SATA is less reliable than old IDE, simply on statistics of their bell curves - if they're old, they're likely to survive longer, but new stuff still has to be chasing price of fabrication as well as ascending the leading edge of the bell. Boards have bad caps which don't always fail catastrophically. Knowledge is not essential to fix HW unlike the clever SW guys around here. The trade does it by simple substitution - keep changing stuff (one at a time, though) until it works.
Then there's always the issue of compatibility of HW along with underhand attempts at leverage by certain companies; fortunately, we don't have a great fruit fetish on this Forum.
Just a few additional things to worry about that don't get aired too often by the resident gurus. Be sure micko will solve everything in the end.

@ sage

the hanging is on a lenovo t61 (my daily machine) hitatchi ht72* family

the hanging only occurs with this build, fine with 5.3.3 and others

I could never get the old 5.3.3 pae to function correctly so assume this, downloading the new builds and will try the non-pae

@ 01micko

love your work!!

Full install to ext4 partiton.

Loaded several pets and checked them out.

Only problem I have encountered is: Fixmenus will not work
# error: could not open display
error: could not open display

Otherwise, looks good.
Thanks 01micko for your continued efforts in providing great puppies for us to play with.

I did a fresh full install of slacko-5.4-firefox-4g and fixmenus worked OK. I wonder if you have installed a PET with a bad .desktop file. It would be worth tracking this down.

It seems like recent Puppies are more susceptible to menu problems.

Anyone have a standalone sfs for kdenlive compiled? I know there is a pet but it is huge and I also know that it exists for saluki but I tried it just now and it does not work. On a side note, is there a way to DL packages but not install them, and then use some pet2sfs thing to turn a whole Dir into a sfs?

Download the pet from the site not via Puppy Package Manager.
If you have Dons right clicks installed, simply right click on the pet and extract here. Make sure you have the pet in an empty directory, just for simplicity, not really necessary. Now you should have a directory something like kdenlive-x.x
In a console type dir2sfs kdenlive-x.x and a sfs will be created.

If the pet contained a pinstall file the sfs file may not work, depending on what action the pinstall needed to take.
