Have you tested it with your SFS loader?

Thanks

- BarryK, how about implementing a new feature in Quirky - 'puppy pfix=temp' ?

When this 'cheatcode' is enabled, Quirky searches for an existing Quirky savefile on the hard drive, and if it finds one,it loads the savefile COMPLETELY in RAM as well and then unmounts the drive. Then Quirky continues to work in a similar fashion as if started with 'pfix=ram'.

This mode would be great for live testing/troubleshooting and for high-security browsing. With this mode there would no longer be a need to burn a separate machine-specific Quirky remaster for live use. Now we can have all our network, firewall, browser settings etc. stored in a savefile and still use Quirky as a *true* live CD.


- Another feature I would also like to see in Quirky is an additional option in Pmount to mount drives as read-only. This is really important when you want to access files in drives/partitions without touching/altering them. Good for rescuing data from failing hard drives, accessing files from 'flaky' DVD-RAM, DVD-RW and USB Flash drives.

Hi Barry,
Another recommendation for quirky1.2, Rolling Eyes

The xterm script file as used in the puppy4 series is gone from /usr/X11R7/bin/ replaced by a symlink in /usr/bin/ to /usr/bin/urxvt. This means the "xterm -hold -e" function no longer works. Crying or Very sad

I copied it from puppy431 into /usr/bin/ and my script files work again. Very Happy Maybe you could put it into quirky1.2?

Thanks, J

Yep, SFS-TCZ_Linker_1.4 is fully functional in Quirky1.1. Very Happy

Hello All,

- A note to Barry and developers.

I noticed that at random boots - the boot process freezes.

It freezes when this text shows "loading drivers nneded to access disk drives".

Tested on different machines - and got the same thing. So something strange is happening at random bootup times.. .

Most of the times it works.

I am booting from USB + frugal + tested ext3 pup save file might be this that is causing this freeze will test ext2 but not sure.

Noticed the same thing with Quirky 1.1 and Wary 020.

Best regards,
Johan

I already posted this as a blog comment, but reposting here since it's the proper place.

I ran into Quirky just a few days ago and so far I have been very pleased, but I ran into a few issues:
- .mkv files aren't asociated with mplayer, although it can play them
- mplayer sometimes doesn't go to fullscreen, but just to the upper corner of the screen and the shortcuts (C, F) aren't working most of the time
- it seems when the network connection is being disconnected (e.g. router restarting) while the system is running it's not able to restore the the connection
- it is not possible to mount the root (/) of a windows computer/samba share. doing some will also result in an irremovable entry in the share list
- a vnc client would be nice, but the realvnc.com linux version standalone is working so fine, so it's not really a priority
- the Internet Connection Wizard suggests to use the Simple Network Setup, but that won't see the wireless LAN settings you made, so you have to use the Network Wizard

I am running a hard disk installation.

I also recognized the free disk space application exists as a icon on the left next to the "Menu" button and as a tray icon. I think one is enough. When I select "All Drives" it also shows sda1 twice (I only got sda1 and sda5 and it is installed to sda1).

powerapplet_tray icon needs X reboot to display current state.

Edit: Just saw 2.2, which works better.

Got the same issue, but updating to 2.2 didn't help.

Edit: nevermind...it just takes some time.

is it possible to change background of blinky and rerovol ?
i use lxpanel and they do not match gtk theme
also i'd like to know where are the files that autostart them ( of course i looked in known places:)

mplayer compained for d-bus machine -id file one time and i cured that issue by running
/usr/bin/dbus-uuidgen
and manually created the text file needed with the id line:)

seamonkey 2 is fine!
i wonder how i will resist to install opera( of course new opera is coming Smile

Subject description: q110 observations
 

no need to resist opera here Smile

@ecube on p4 (ref jwmconfig and tray/panelbuttons) - good idea, I've always found it easier to directly edit those traybuttons in rather than use the interface provided.

@panzerpuppy (above on this p5, ref pfix=temp) - another good idea, might need some tinkering in rc.shutdown
...

Used the 'basics' from q100 and various quirkys to put together another personal sfs and adapt an old smaller savefile for q110. Just picky about what I like to have, never got around to making dotpets or remastering a moving target like quirky recently. Anyhow it all turned out real well (think there's possibly some tweaking needs done in the order/layer that sfses load) and not much adjustment needed at all. Perhaps by editing /etc/rc.d/BOOTCONFIG to the expected values it didn't give the usual 'version upgrade' plus /tmp/versioncleanup stuff and pretty much kept settings as-was. A real joy on the first boot to a clean non-roxpin desktop with no fuss nor nags Smile

Real stable and comfy. Made a pass at using snap2 to bkp root, but it ran out of the little room I gave it before it completed Neutral guess it can't tell the difference between what's on sfs (wine, fonts etc) and what's on or will be on savefile on the initial run of snap2. Easier for me to just copy a 'known good' off from time to time (and the copy doesn't care if it's on a fat32 hdd). Seems to be a great idea though.

Every once in a while I get a file that's unreadable (or more so than usual Wink ), but then it's mostly a matter of finding one that can overwrite it to rights.

Once it settles a bit after boot, q110 is very responsive in jwm - is there some sort of subtle animation now? When I close a window or change xcompmgr state there's some slight vertical wipe effect. Little nuances I haven't really noticed before (like popup thumbnails in aftersteps menu and some bits of opera) seem to indicate that the display is optimal as far as older ati/radeon cards like mine are concerned.

urxvt home end keys
quirky110 (probably all quirky and puppy)

I use urxvt (aka console or terminal) often.

I have noticed the home and end keys do not function properly in mp, e3 and vi.

For quirky110 they should be:
Rxvt.keysym.Home: \033[1~
Rxvt.keysym.End: \033[4~

For puppy431 they should be:
Rxvt.keysym.0xFF50: \033[1~
Rxvt.keysym.0xFF57: \033[4~

In both comment out or change:
!Rxvt*keysym.0xFF50:\001
!Rxvt*keysym.0xFF57:\005

I recently learned how to change those in .Xdefaluts
.

An extra meg, but FoxitReader is a huge plus. Some PDFs were unreadable with epdfview.
