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.


That's a good thing, what I get from it is that its installing your previous settings, like the example shown, your printer settings, so that you won't have to reinstall it, I could be wrong, but I never install anything, just run live.

I'm getting this too. The interesting bit is that I deleted the previous install, so it couldn't be installing the previous settings.

The pet fixing the installer worked wonders. Very Happy

The pet fixing the failed shutdown, well not so well. Embarassed

It's still doing everything but cutting the power.

The splash screen on bootup from CD still reads 4.31.

Nice speed there. You are releasing new versions as fast as I can test them. Smile

Back in 2007 or 8 I had that problem on an AOpen 915 with pupy400 and then when they made puppy431 and the problem was solved.

so it seems very hardware specific. It solved my problem but ended up on your HW instead.

Printing:

Quick test of printing (after installing Cups-fix.pet).

From Seamonkey to lpr, HPDeskJet815C: Very Happy
From Seamonkey to CUPS-Pdf: Very Happy
From epdfview to lpr, HPDeskJet815C: Very Happy

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.

Put this line into /etc/mime.types:

I came across a really strange problem using SM2* in 4.3.1 Thursday. Usually, I connect via wireless LAN. One place I travel to has cabled network. Here, I normally just run the network wizard for an ip address, and Seamonkey 1.* uses that. SM2 just would not however.
Have not yet had a chance to try this with 4.3.2, and wont till next Thurs.

Test of V2

AMD Athlon(tm), 899,00MHz, 2009MB RAM ,
wlan0 Wireless zd1211rw usb : Belkin USB2.0 WLAN
Problem: Unable to establish WPA connection
wpa_state=4WAY_HANDSHAKE

2x Intel(R) Core 2 Duo CPU E7500 @ 2.93GHz, 3079MB RAM
#PuppyHardwareProfile=Intel_r_Eaglelake_Graphics_ChipDELLE2210
Problem: Resolution 1280x1024 pixels instead of 1680x1050 (Quirky10)
V2 xorg.conf
Driver "vesa" #card0driver
VendorName "Intel Corporation"
Section "Screen"
Subsection "Display"

Quirky10 xorg.conf
Driver "intel" #card0driver
VendorName "Unknown Vendor"
Section "Screen"
Subsection "Display"
Modes "1680x1050"

Suggestions

1. Replace mtPaint Screen Capture with Shot v1.0 having "Window Only"

2. Replace PartView with the enclosed pet which shows mounted drives as default with an option to show all drives. Showing all drives as default is slow on low-end hardware.
