Running fresh 4.3.2-v2 frugal install:
On each bootup/reboot i keep getting an updating files message, (seems to be cups related)
followed by
updating from 431 to 432 message with a 30 second boot delay.


I confirm this. Also Seamonkey replaces Firefox as the defaultbrowser again. And /tmp/versionupgrade does not exist, despite the boot message referring to it.

Hopefully a minor bug.

Happy Easter to y'all.

You can get rid of gfnrename as it can't cope with spaces when I tried to do a search and replace batch rename. Can you also replace all those Calculators with galculator if you have not all ready? I am also making a large 7z of updates I have for you Smile and may be a possible extras 7z Very Happy.
Whats your updates consist of? I'm not replacing anything that could cripple the system, This is just a quick bug fix release Smile could your updates be tar.gz or tar.bz2 4 series doesn't have 7z or xarchiver, just xarchive.
hmmm I need to focus mostly on the bugs and get this release finalized.

As with stu90 and abushcrafter, I also get Puppy thinking I am upgrading and saying it is restoring original files.
And they seem to be related to cups.

It's still doing everything but cutting the power.


This may not be an overall solution but JamesC mentioned this earlier. Just add acpi=force to your kernel line in grub and your computer should poweroff with no issue.


Now, That worked. Very Happy

Thanx Sinc and JamesC. (Sorry I did see it earlier Embarassed )

PostPosted: Sat 03 Apr 2010, 21:28    Post subject: kmap-1.14.1 keymaps  

ttuuxxx,
There is a peculiar problem with the keymaps of 4.3.1. For keymaps using latin 1 encoding (de,dk,fi,fr,no,se, etc) non-ascii characters are not shown correctly in all circumstances. In Swedish "å" is such a character. The problem is related to the fact that there are two places where the keyboard is defined. The choice of keymap at the initial boot (console keyboard layout) and the xorg kbd keyboard driver. The problem is tricky to reproduce and people using us-keyboard will never encounter it.

However, in Woof Barry has most likely solved the problem.

http://bkhome.org/blog/?viewDetailed=01218

Replacing /usr/share/kdb with /lib/keymaps has an additional advantage. If a user needs a keymap which isn't offered at initial boot, she can install the complete set of kmap-1.14.1 keymaps using the enclosed pet. This remedy also works in puppies derived from Woof.

Suggestion

Use the woof versions of Keyboard Wizard and rc.country.
The pertinent changes in rc.country is
#091122 merge kmap mods from ecube, maps now in /lib/keymaps, /lib/consolefonts.
#100127 added sv.

Replace the /lib/keymaps and /lib/consolefonts with the woof versions and discard the /usr/share/kbd directory

If you decide to make the changes, please check that you can choose from the complete set of keymaps using "Change the mouse and keyboard"

Off topic
You are are one of the key developers needed for Puppy to win the agility trial. I do hope you are going to continue making Puppy Best in Show.

hi ttuuxxx,

could you include acpid-1.0.10-1.pet referred to here

http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=38173
(Patriot and shinobar)

it provides soft shut down and suspend mostly for laptops
(Works well in both Quirky013 and StarDust013)

but if you called the suspend.sh from your desktop pc, it probably works as well

many thanks

As always - very best regards - Ray

For a fix to Puppy 432 thinking it is upgrading from 431 when you boot,
I found that you did change the file /etc/puppyversion to show 432, but /etc/DISTRO_SPECS still showed 431.
As a test, I changed it to show 432 and was able to boot without it thinking I was upgrading from 431.

But Puppy wrote over the DISTRO_SPECS file and it again showed 431.
So It needs to be changed in the SFS file to make it permanent.

After started from live CD, I made some minor cosmetics on the desktop (Changed Icon set, background and set network connection). Then rebooted to create pupsave.2fs file.
Boots well, including the lovely 'next boot will be faster' text. I see my changes, works fine.
However, if I reboot again, a strange "Version update restoring 'official' files, please wait... " message appears. It seems that the original 431 version, or at least some portions of it, will be restored.

Add this script to /etc/rc.d/rc.local:
Code:
cp /initrd/DISTRO_SPECS /etc/DISTRO_SPECS
