Hi pemasu,
fresh, first run.
Boot is OK, quick setup ... and I notice that sda1 is mounted. That's exclusively winxp territory and it's never been intruded (mounted on boot) before. All my puppies are on sdc1. Once the quick setup is done, sda1 magically unmounts itself.

Thank you very much for ppower. I'd like two things with it: 1) remove turbo mode from source. 2) compile and install it in another puppy (with acpi scripts from wheezy). I almost figured out how the turbo mode is invoked.

I believe it is due to new fail safe graphics feature. /usr/sbin/quickset has new feature to save pupdesk.flg file, starting from this row:
Code:
 #130509 need to create pupdesk.flg before bring up gui window, with $XDRIVERSUCCESS stored in it, for xorgwizard-cli...

It might be that it creates that file somewhere from where to access it if hard reboot is needed. So the failed boot to desktop will be registered and at next boot the failsafe xorgwizard-cli will be launched without booting to the X and you can choose the graphics driver.

Well, I don't mind pupdesk.flg being created in a partition where puppy resides. But I do very much mind my other partitions being sniffed in the process.

Anikin. you should post about the feature to Barry`s blog.

Here is the snapshot of the desktop when the sda1 is mounted and the failsafe file has been created.

I believe that the failsafe feature is still under progress. Feedback would be noted by Barry K surely.

I tend to agree. It is a good idea but should ask the user if it's ok to make the file, especially for ntfs/fat. I won't be producing a pup with that enabled.
This is of course just my opinion and I will post to BK's blog.

Cheers

Barry has already responded to this in his blog: http://bkhome.org/blog2/?viewDetailed=00226 and I'm glad he decided to re-implement pupdesk.flg in a different way. As I'm not registered there, I will briefly quote Barry and respectfully disagree with him on this account:
Barry wrote:
Note also, pupdesk.flg only gets created/removed in PUPMODE=5. So it doesn't happen after installation, nor in full HD installation. In other words, it is a "one off" thing.
...to object to that is really being paranoid.

I have chosen to completely abandon the save file, which means my puppies will always be running in pupmode 5. That's exactly my "modus operandi", I'm condemned to it. And don't see the issue as a "one off" happening. As to being paranoid ... I'd rather be safe than sorry.

'pupdesk.flg' redesigned

When I get confirmation, that the revived method works, I will download new woof and update Dpup Wheezy to use it. There has been a lot other woof fixes due to frenzy Precise Puppy development.

I compiled Gimp2.8.4 in Wheezy and dicovered that the app would
run in Precise, Raring and Slacko as well, but it was substantially bigger.

The opposite isn't true i.e. an app compiled in Precise won't run in Wheezy.

Thanks don570. Your gimp pet and sfs needed some finetuning. Some missing libs which I add. Also that wheezy compiled but precise named sfs had older version of gimp libs inside. You should look at it.

All above has been uploaded to the repo after finetuning.

Thanks.

Re pupdesk.flg alternatives
I was thinking that if the user enters the boot parameters:

puppy pfix=ram
or
puppy pfix=nox

Then 'pupdesk.flg' will not be created, ie that mechanism will be disabled.

That would be a compromise. So, if someone needs to do repair/recovery off a HD and don't want to write anything to it, then those options will do it.

Such a compromise would perfectly fit not only my "saveless" puppy layout. Think also of all those who remaster their stock releases into kiosk/appliance/embedded puppies.

Hello, pemasu.

I tried 3.5.2.7 version and saw no visible changes, except for the more complex/complicated xorgwizard... One positive aspect: update of my pup_save file was a cinch.

That said, following your lead in a message above, I removed the diagnostics "set -xe" commands manually in some /etc scripts in 3.5.2.5, and that produced satisfactory results in its xerrs.log.

So, I'm sticking with WheezyPup 3.5.3.5 until more substantial changes are made.

Best regards.
