Subject description: Puppy will not shutdown or reboot from the Puppy Menu
 

Since the last couple of days, I am unable to shutdown Puppy from the menu. The ONLY was I can shutdown the system is by exiting to a prompt (I can still end an X session), and then type in "poweroff" at the prompt.

What gives? I am running Precise v5.7.1 on a Dell D610 Notebook. It's a full install on an ext2 filesystem (I'm pretty sure it's ext2, but I'm at work right now...lol)

full installs had a quirk where if the system partition was mounted then it went into a loop.

running xwin from the command prompt instead of exec xwin will also cause it.

Otherwise someone else might have some insights

The scripts are

/usr/bin/restartwm

/usr/bin/wmexit

/usr/bin/wmreboot

/usr/bin/wmpoweroff

.
They wait up to one minute , until pup_event_frontend_d has exited .

Perhaps this delay is confusing you .


So check the scripts and run them from terminal , instead from the menu .

If run from the menu , errors would log into /tmp/xerrs.log .
/tmp/xerrs.log will be written new , if you run xwin again from the prompt .
To view /tmp/xerrs.log at the prompt for hints :
Code:
-sh # less /tmp/xerrs.log


Other than pup_event_frontend_d : Could be sudo'ers changes .

And for ext2 :
Code:
tune2fs -j /dev/sda1

would turn it into ext3 with journal .

BTW : Does the scheduled filesystem checks in /sbin/init work for you in the full install ?

To check the filesystem I was inserting my Puppy install CD-ROM and running fsck from there on /dev/sda1. So I never knowingly utilized automatic volume checks.

I will check the scripts when I arrive home however. Thanks for your input.

It turns out wmreboot and wmpoweroff are missing. Great! That's why the first two commands work.

Are these scripts available anywhere online, or can I copy and paste code into a text editor window and save a script?

I found some for Slacko, but they don't work on my Precise system.
