I never trust users reviews

You are right to be cautious. I find Trusted Reviews and Pocket Lint to be as trusting as one can get these days having been written by staffers. However, my caution re. Asus is based on observation and experience over many years. Yes, like Dell, the keys are an issue. I suspect BK is well aware of the other shortcomings. Either way, I never saw any role for laptops of any description, having caused me more grief than any other area of the technology. Always refuse 'gifts' of same - poisoned chalice. Notwithstanding, a company-owned (and repaired) machine sometimes has a position.

I know I have read this around somewhere, but directories do not
persist on reboot for /var/log

Any ideas?

You can modify the shutdown procedure at shutdown with a script change.
I would suggest copying /var/log to /tmp which is not trashed at shutdown

To execute something on shutdown or reboot, edit-
/etc/rc.d/rc.shutdown

Not sure if anyone else is seeing this, but the included "remasterpup2' script is failing in all Quirkies (not just Slaq, but also Xenials---it's happened on 2 Xenial 8.0/8.1.6 installs and on 1 Slaq 8.1.6 install). The remasterpup2 script cannot even start as it pops up the weird message as shown here:

http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=943127#943127


It's weird because the installs are from different downloaded ISOs, all checksum verified. The date and system info is all correct & updated, so why is the script doing this on all Quirky installs?? Does Barry prohibit running remasters from 'frugal' installs (which all the above are)??

Thanks for help/tips/feedback

Hi belham2.

I've never tried these current Quirkies by Mr. Kauler, so I don't know the
answer to your question.

My suggestion would be to not suppose anything and ask the man directly?

IHTH

????

Musher, I posted it here both as a 'bug report' and also in case anyone else is seeing it ???? This is where Barry (and others testing/using Quirky) look, so I am confused by your answer to "ask the man directly"?

Barry doesn' respond to PMs, nor does he want them and/or should he have to respond to them. As a user, we're supposed to report stuff here (and also his website forum).

Instead of digging around in rc.sysint (it requires time to understand... Smile )
I just created the required directories on some app startups.

After several years, I have never used the remasterpup2...

but looking into the guts.. you see...
at least DISTRO_IDSTRING is missing from /etc/DISTROSPECS
and as the code says maybe some more changes are needed..

Comment the code below, and give it a spin.. see what happens.
Of course try this in an image you do not need..

gcav

-----------
if [ ! "$DISTRO_IDSTRING" ];then #101107
#need some stuff in here if want to support older puppies. maybe also more fixes needed further down.
pupmessage -bg red -title "RemasterPup" -center "Sorry, your Puppy is too old for this script"
exit
else
PUPPYSFS="$DISTRO_PUPPYSFS" #ex: puppy.sfs
ZDRVSFS="$DISTRO_ZDRVSFS" #ex: zdrv.sfs
#DEVXSFS="$DISTRO_DEVXSFS" #ex: devx.sfs
SFSBASE="`basename $PUPPYSFS .sfs`" #ex: puppy
fi

Hi Gcav,

Thanks for the tips. I've been trying it and various other things, but no luck. For now, I am just going to have let this go....I prefer running things in 'frugal' installs, and Barry's creations are a bit of a headache to make work in this regard. Plus, when you want to do things, like, for example, figure out something simple with a remaster that should work, it doesn't in Quirky that is frugally installed. Remaster scripts (and other stuff) work in other pups and pup-related distros, so whatever is going on is specific to the Quirky creations when they are 'frugally-installed'. Just getting the Quirkys to boot and recognize created Savefiles upon subsequent boots required hunting down scripts changes (which I posted about). Regarding remasters, I can get a fresh, first booted Quirky frugal install to run the script, but any subsequent remasters afterwards don't work at all. I imagine it has something to do with Quirkys requiring the full installion and not be frugal-installed. Anyhow, thanks again/

Will there be a SlaQ 8.2 release with aufs instead of overlay?
