Uevent, SFS fixes

October 02, 2009 — BarryK
I am not able to get much Internet access. Right now I'm visiting one of my sisters to use her internet.

I have done a little bit of work on Puppy...

I already reported a problem with hardware detection with the kernel. This is due to the way the kernel handles uevents in kernels prior to 2.6.24.
The result is that some modules may not load, though I expect it to be ok for most people.
Anyway, I fixed it, a simple modification to /etc/rc.d/rc.sysinit.

Another problem is that the desktop icons can get messed up when SFS files are added or removed.
This is also fixed, needed a change in /etc/rc.d/rc.update.


detected ok here

Woof Woof !

"Yes, I've seen the problem with icons messed up. Is there a manual fix we can do to Puppy 4.30 to amend /etc/rc.d/rc.update ?
