Thanx again 4 Your Help...


Maybe the resizing didn't work out well, that could be because you resized while savefile was in use.
I'd say, try to resize again from booting without save (Always fresh boot option)

@Max, thanks for the screenshot, it looks like your savefile is around 1GB and the resizing didn't work properly, try resizing again from "Always fresh" boot (resize should be done when savefile not in use), if still not as expected, then better start all over again with creating a completely new savefile, as you wish, size 3.2 GB.
Edit: as for your question about if FAT32 makes any difference, for me booting and saving from FAT32 (with savefile) works OK as with any other filesystem.

It's in /usr/local/bin, "conkytoggle.sh"

Hi 007_james_bond,

It's a hack, but it works:
Code:
sed -i 's/geteuid/getppid/' /usr/bin/vlc

Note, when you upgrade vlc, /usr/bin/vlc will be overwritten, so you have to do it again.

Fred

Hi 007_james_bond. There are reasons why vlc is set to not run as root, so whilst that can be worked around you should at least consider the implications of doing so. Similar to running a browser as root. The more probable way into a system is via the likes of such programs (along with email and other doors such as upgrades).

Puppy's running as root from a read only medium such as CD along with physical isolation from other systems/devices (other PC's on the same LAN segment, local HDD etc.) is relatively OK (can still be a issue with respect to hardware i.e. BIOS flashing). Contained within a jail or container and again OK. HDD frugal (or fully) installed ... not OK, more so if being run from within a corporate LAN segment.

@Fred Thanks again Fred. You are genius. Smile
@rufwoof Thanks rufwoof for your security concern. I normally run both chromium and vlc as user but I wanted to know whether its possible or not to run them as root like puppy. I thought it might be useful if I know how to run them as root.
