Something to look at, this person had xorg.conf changed during reboot and fixed by changing immutable bit on xorg.conf file using the utility chattr

https://forums.linuxmint.com/viewtopic.php?t=173325

Info about chattr https://www.tecmint.com/chattr-command-examples/

If chattr is used to set immutable bit +i the file cannot be changed until the immutable bit is removed -i

You do not need sudo command, puppy already runs as root Smile

Hope it helps, I have never used chattr

Code:
sed -i 's / Layout "" us / Layout "" us, ru /' /etc/X11/xorg.conf

No good way to hash SHA1, SHA256, & CRC32 except from the command line.
I installed gtkhash from the ubuntu bionic repository and did not like how it looked, it did work ok though.

I just ended up using the gtkhash from precise puppy. Works good and looks good.
It is in this pet file attached.

Good day.
Why are WiFi modems not defined classically as wlan0 wlan1 and so on, but what is not clear
identifier, in this case "wlxb0487a9366fa". And each for a different WiFi or a computer. Very uncomfortable ! I have conky installed and every time I change the device, I need to change the ID in the rows. How to get around this inconvenience

Code:
# iwconfig
enp3s0    no wireless extensions.

Try a sort of this menu entry in grub4dos (change to adapt to your case):

Code:
title Puppy bionic beaver 18.05+10 (sdb1/ubbpup)
  uuid xxxyyyyzzzz
  kernel /ubbpup/vmlinuz net.ifnames=0 psubdir=ubbpup pmedia=usbhd pfix=fsck
  initrd /ubbpup/initrd.gz


Note the boot option net.ifnames=0.

Thanks for the quick response .
The error has left, not there entered the parameter. Everything is working !!!

Subject description: Classic puppy desktop and menu
 

Updated 08-26-18
Just sharing my pet that converts upup bionic into a classic style puppy desktop & menu that uses
the old-style .jwmrc & .jwmrc-tray

This is a pet of the JwmConfig3 program and templates from ttuuxxx debian stretch 7. It converts the
upup bionic desktop to classic puppy desktop and menu by installing JwmConfig3 & templates from
ttuuxxx debian stretch & looks similar to the slacko 5.7 desktop

I apologise if you downloaded an earlier version and desktop themes
didn't work. Fixed now.

All Desktop Menu tools fully functional

All the original UPUP Bionic themes are available. +1more

Unfortunately it is only for a frugal installed UPUP Bionic, it won't work on anything else.
pet attached at bottom of this post

It also changes the menu label "Applications" to "Menu" and "Leave" to "Exit"
It uninstalls cleanly if removed.
This is for a frugal installed UPup Bionic Beaver only.

To install & get running
----------
1. Install bionic_retro_desktop_frugal_only.pet
2. Restart Xorg server (Restart Graphical Server)
3. Done (unless you want to change themes, etc.) Themes now work correctly!

To uninstall & go back to original desktop
----------
1. Uninstall using Puppy Package Manager
2. Restart Xorg server (Restart Graphical Server)
3. Done

Couple screenies to show what it does to an unmodified desktop.

Hi peebee,

is it possible to have a recent kernel (kernel 4.17.0 ) like your LxPupSc64-18.06 for UPup Bionic Beaver (upupbb)

Sorry for my demand i did not really know how much work it provide to make a new kernel for puppy Rolling Eyes

Short answer is - yes.

If your hardware is 64-bit capable then use the kernel you will find in:
https://sourceforge.net/projects/lxpup/files/Other/LxPupSc/interims/
which is 4.18.3 as of today....

@ jplt_bis,

And you want us to chew your food, also. Shocked

1. Download the huge-4.18.3-lxpup64.tar.bz2 from the link peebee provided.
2. Right-click it. Select one of the extraction applications such as UExtract or pArchive. Extracted you'll find two files. Right-click vmlinux-4.1.8.3-lxpup64, select rename and rename it just vmlinux. Open a 2nd file-manager window to your upup66 folder and look at the full name given to zdrv_upupbb_xxx.sfs. In the other window, right-click the extracted file kernel_modules.sfs-4.18.3-lxpup64 and rename it to be exactly that of the zdrv_upupbb_xxx.sfs.
3. Right-click an empty space in your upupbb folder. Select New>directory and give it a name, like Old_Kernel. Drag the current vmlinuz and zdrv_upupbb_xxx.sfs into that folder and select move. [The purpose of this step is to enable reversion to the old kernel should you want/have to].
4. Drag the vmlinuz and newly renamed zdrv_upupbb_xxx.sfs into your upupbb folder.
5. Reboot. You'll now be running upupbb with a new kernel and all the applications you installed.
6. The above takes less than 5 minutes and is much faster than having to start building your upupbb from scratch.

Although upupbb is a 32-bit system and the kernel you downloaded can be used in 64-bit systems, it can also be used in 32-bit systems. However, kernels built exclusively for 32-bit systems can not be used in 64-bit systems. My layman's understanding: The code at the machine level on a 64-bit system are 64 bits long. instructions consist of one 32-bit word joined to a 2nd 32-bit word. 64-bit systems read this as one word. A 32-bit system can't read the 2nd-half of that word and ignores the second half.


mikesLr

Afterthought: The above may not work if your computer is a "true nopae", that is its CPU doesn't just have pae turned off by default. Pae is an instruction set enabling a 32-bit system to access more than "4" Gbs of RAM (actually about 3.9 Gbs). As far back at the Pentium-Ms, some computers had the instruction set, but it was turned off by default: It works CPU a little harder and manufacturers of computers that old figured you didn't have more than 4 Gbs of RAM so why waste the resources you do have. To turn it on, add forcepae to your boot arguments: e.g.

kernel /upupbb/vmlinuz pmedia=ataflash psubdir=upupbb forcepae pfix=fsck

But if your computer is a "true nopae", it probably can't run upupbb anyway.

I'm running just that, upupbb 18.05 +11 with a fairly heavily modified savefile (pcmanfm and pup-trashcan integrated etc.) and the 4.18.3 64b kernel referenced. Takes far longer to read than to do Smile Usually when I update/swap a kernel on an existing install, I also do the following in the savefile before booting into it (not in the active savefile!), either from another pup or by making a copy of the exixting savefile, renaming it to reflect the new version and or kernel and choosing it on reboot:

delete /lib/modules. delete /etc/modules. delete /etc/X11/xorg.conf. If a slackwarepup, delete /etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-net.rules. And finally delete /var/local/xorg_udev.

None is essential but it prevents carrying multiple kernels in the savefile and port relabeling in the slackware based pups, and forces a clean boot.
