Shutdown/reboot bug fixes

November 04, 2012 — BarryK
Precise Puppy 5.4 testers have reported problems when the session is saved to the entire partition. Specifically, they were testing on USB and SD-card boot media, with Linux filesystem and session saved to the entire partition.

I have identified a few bugs in /etc/rc.d/rc.shutdown, that caused shutdown and reboot problems.

I have not tested from an SD-card, only USB, and it now works. Actually, on my laptop the SD interface appears as a USB interface, not a native MMC interface, so an SD card would work just the same as my USB pen drive.

"Hello Paganini There's no need to have PGPRS terminal window open anymore, you can close it and disconnect from the network icon on the right of the taskbar, right-click it and select "Disconnect from network". You will notice that your connection remains even after restarting X. I think this is very practical. But be aware that this feature is in Precise Puppy only. Well, maybe in beta versions of Wary and Racy, too.

"Hmmmmm.... This is the first time I have ever tried this.. The other day when I downloaded woof2, for the first time I used "getwoof". So now, I just tried to do "getwoof update". It seemed to work but only grabbed the f92926df2b commit. I probably already had that. [code]updated-to: f92926df2b13b10a37916ffeeb8810e0deb2b184 2012-11-03 00:13:47 UTC tags: trunk comment: fixes for new variable DISTRO_DB_SUBNAME (user: BarryK)[/code] This is obviously after you committed 72d6b63166 and af924854e7 (from the timeline). Any ideas? I'll try a manual update and see if it's your script or a fossil/hosting issue. ------------------------ A few minute later... Ok, did "fossil update" from my former woof tree and it worked correctly..
