When I click on it, nothing happens.
(Note: I edited about the part where it talked about swappartitions just incase.)

Nothing comes up on my screen.
Any help?

Try running it from the commandline, and see what errors (if any) it spits out at you.

i'm sorry, that doesn't make any sense to me. i wish that i could help you with that.

i would suggest re-downloading the dot-pup file, but because during the install of the dot-pup one of the steps taken is checking the md5sum, that isn't likely the problem.

(scratch that - DO redownload, it's worth a shot. try and uninstall first. oh yeah, have you tried just #torsmo? or, looking inside the torsmo folder (that looks like an icon) ?

sorry man, never had that particular error before Sad

Change the brightness and contrast settings. Torsmo can be invisible on some backgrounds. It has always been a mystery to me why this excellent program never worked on the last 3 versions of Puppy (I always try it - no luck)

It did not work again - but wait there seemed to be some writing in top right - changed the brightness right up then the background

- I think it was running all that time - just never saw it . . .

Mystery solved.

Hope it appears OK for you - BUT the error message would suggest a different problem in your case.

that's funny lobster - almost as funny as me spending 45 minutes trying to get /dev/hdb1 to auto-mount and then realising that hdb1 was the partition that the pup001 file was on, so it was always going to be mounted as /mnt/home Surprised

(well, it was funny about 5 seconds after i figured that out, 'till then i was pretty choked....)

Floating point exception is the error you get when you don't have a swap file/partition ... it's probably dividing the free space by the total swap space (zero)

i have updating the package on my to-do list
it should be easy to check the total swap space and if it's 0, remove the swap line from .torsmorc ... something like

Code:
free | grep Swap | awk '{print $2}'


i can fix it so it's reads the Puppy version from /etc/puppy too

and i should check if there's a newer version

Could someone post the fixed one?
For some reason mine got deleted.
(The Torso.txt) or whatever file resides on /root

just delete or comment the line with $swapperc% and it should work ok ... it's dividing by swapmax, without checking to see if swapmax is 0
