Subject description: Puppy wastes lot of time while searching for save file
 

Puppy looks for personal save files if pfix=ram is nor specified. Currently I am using puppy lucid 5.28 which searched deep in sub sub directory wasting lot of time. I want puppy to use just a save file in root directory.
i am starting puppy from windows using:
linld.com image=vmlinu~1 initrd=initrd~1.gz cl=lupulin.txt

Options in lupulin.txt :

pkeys=us
acpi=off
pmedia=idehd
pdev1=sda2
pupsfs=sda2:/lupu_528.sfs
psubok=FALSE
psave=sda2:/lupusave-lcd1024.2fs

Still puppy searches in sub sub directories.
Can anybody tell me how to prevent puppy to search when psave option is already specified ? Or is there any syntax error in my file ?

My menu.lst looks like this:

Code:
title Puppy Linux 528 frugal
rootnoverify (hd0,0)
kernel /puppy528/vmlinuz pmedia=atahd psubdir=puppy528 pfix=noram,fsck
initrd /puppy528/initrd.gz


The "psubdir=puppy528" option limits the search to that single directory.

I think the psubOK and psave parameters were relevant to an earlier version of Puppy (4.3.1?). They are ignored in 5.2.8.

As RetroTechGuy has intimated it would be best to move your pup files and associated save file to a subdirectory and use the psubdir parameter to point to it. Then the searching is very quick. I don't think you can use psubdir to point to the root directory so best to move things to a subdirectory.
