Subject description: Appears to increase on reboot... but doesn't.
 

Hi all,

Never had this problem before.

My save file is getting small, and I've used the increase save-file option successfully before on this puppy, but now it's not working anymore.

Puppy Lucid 5.2.0
Frugal Install
2.3gig Save-file
ext4 partition
hp 64 dual-core (runs 32 also)
tons of ram and swap
XFCE

I thought maybe since I switched to xfce that makes some kind of problem with the increase safe-file program? Maybe I can try a command line code? Does anyone know how to increase the save-file from a terminal?

As worse case, can I remaster my puppy as it is, reinstall, then create a new save file?

Like I said, any options helpful.

Thanks

Eathray

Where is the save file located?
There is free space at location for the added size?

Thanks for the reply BigPup,

It is located in /mnt/home/lucid520. This is on partition sda2 with 14gig of unused space.

Bigpup,

Okay, now I'm embarrassed.

1) It could be 'old-timers' creeping up on me.
2) I may have burnt too many brain cells in my youth.

I thought I had an extra 14gig on sda2. Because you asked, I decided to dig out my Gparted disk and double check. It turns out, I had that extra 14gig on sda4 Embarassed

So I shuffled stuff around, gained 14 gig on sda2 which I took from sda4, and increased my save-file by 1gig.

Thanks for pointing out the obvious! I would have lost money if that were a bet!
