As you know Puppy Linux uses HWCLOCK="localtime", but in Arch Linux announcement says: We now strongly
discourage the use of HWCLOCK="localtime", as this may lead to several known and unfixable bugs.
On the other side, if HWCLOCK is set to UTC then Windows would not show the time correctly. I will change it to localtime, to avoid possible complaints.
mavrothal,
those files you mentioned are all provided by Arch packages
Code:
[root@archpup ~]# spkg file dhcpcd.conf
Package                   File
dhcpcd                    /etc/dhcpcd.conf
pwireless2                /usr/local/Pwireless2/dhcpcd.conf
[root@archpup ~]# spkg file protocols 
Package                   File
iana-etc                  /etc/protocols
[root@archpup ~]# spkg file services
Package                   File
iana-etc                  /etc/services
libreoffice               /opt/libreoffice3.6/program/services/services.rdb
libreoffice               /opt/libreoffice3.6/ure/share/misc/services.rdb
libreoffice               /opt/libreoffice3.6/ure/lib/stocservices.uno.so
qt                        /usr/include/Qt/qdesktopservices.h
qt                        /usr/include/QtGui/qdesktopservices.h

I will add powerapplet_tray if it can use Faenza theme, so tray icons will look nice and consistent.

But then a "proper" linux distro shows the wrong time till you sync the clock and from what I can see 55% of the Archpup downloads are from Linux machines...

I do not really care which battery monitor will be included. I just believe that any distro should (does) include one OOTB.

i use isomaster and edit an already working iso...deleting the files out that i don't want, and replacing them with the ones that i do. and saving as a new iso.

Code:
pacman -S isomaster




I want to create a script that works across different puppies so I will try to make it work
with makeisofs. But I will have a look at isomaster.

Battery monitor is already included, it's called conky. I thought powerapplet was some 'special wish', if not then it's fine.

The reason you want a tray applet for battery and not conky is that laptops have a small screen usually filled by whatever you are using. You do not want to start closing/moving windows while you are working on battery power to check your battery levels and time left to work on it.
Is a basic usability thing but if you think is a luxury... so be it.

Is that a progressbar beneath "ACPI Battery: Charged"

Do you have the script for it?

I do not know exactly for the specific one but this (and the link therein) should help.

@Sage: Would you be so kind and explain with some more details what are "lots of faults and
shortcomings with ArchPup". Thanks.

Assumed it'd be apparent from foregoing + my own earlier comments? Not necessarily to be taken as personal admonishment (are you American? - they don't seem to have the same appreciation of the language and its usage as do the Brits), just that the gestation of all Puppies has been and continues to be fraught - as evident from BK's blog, inter alia.

I don't have conky config from that screenshot, but you may look here http://vaipui.wordpress.com/2012/06/10/conky-battery/
Sage, my nationality is actually Serbian and I can hardly communicate in English at all, but I try Wink.
Mine short messages are sometimes interpreted as I am being mad or something and I'm sorry about that.
So let's return to this subject - for you ArchPup shortcoming is that in radio list is missing BBC, or something more.
I am asking with best intention of improving for future release

I never noticed any flaws in your english. If there were,
compare it to the famous little mole on Cindy Crawford Laughing

Understanding linux, Serbian and English, is quite a feat!

run the command 'dmesg' and see if the usb modem is being recognized without an error.

see if the app 'wvdial' shows the modem, if 'dmesg' looks ok.

I was thinking about automatic login.

I like it but I want a failsafe, say after 10 tries it stops trying and drops out to tty.

I think this could be done via a file holding the number of tries
Maybe .xinitrc could reset it?

Is there a better way to do this?
