JWM tray height setting fixed, frugal test

Forum member Kal reported that the /root/.jwm/jwmrc-theme and the JWM themes Gradient-grey and Original have an invalid <Height> tag for the tray. The height of the tray should only be set by the 'height=' parameter of the <Tray> tag in /root/.jwmrc-tray.

The repercussion of this is that the 'JWM configuration' (from the 'Desktop' menu) has an option to set tray height but it fails.

Now the height can e set, but I noticed that it sets "normal" height as 26 pixels. Dingo has moved up to 28 default height, so I fixed that in /usr/local/jwmconfig2/taskbarHeight. I also bumped the "short" height from 18 to 22 pixels.

Note, the selections of "short", "normal", "tall" and "extra tall" are a bit coarse and it would probably be nicer if the program had a entry-box or a pull-down list for setting in exact pixels.

Frugal test:

Forum member prit1 reported:
"for a frugal install, when I shutdown it does not give me an option to save. It directly gives me a message 'session not saved'"

I have just gone through the exercise of doing a frugal installation. I installed to a ext3 partition and at first shutdown it worked as expected, offering a choice of saving the session to a 'pup_save' file or the full partition. Prit1, what type of filesystem have you installed to? ...if NTFS, maybe that has something to do with it. Anyone else got this problem?

I just extracted the iso and copied to a usb stick FAT16, made some work with it, very well done, however shutdown just said session not saved like prit1 said. On puppy 3.01 seme procedure worked fine

Yes, Had the same (session not saved) problem on alpha6. Works fine if you use the psubdir boot option. Without the psubdir boot option, session not saved. Ext3 partition on a sata drive. You mentioned the tray height change for dingo, if you use Dougal's revision of asapm you could reduce that.

Classmate
On the Classmate I installed Dingo4b1 to a 2gb sd card with ext3 file system. This also gave a session not saved and shutdown without saving. This was a straight install without options at boot time.
Dingo saved ok on my usb stick install...hmmm

Need status at first boot
I have just run through testing an install to USB Flash drive, works at shutdown as expected. So, why are these cases of a shutdown without offering to create a pup_save?
Can you guys who have this problem, please post the content of /etc/rc.d/PUPSTATE on first boot (no pup_save) -- there must be something different in the status on the first boot, something wrong, and this file might show what that is.

I get the same problem - no option to save at shutdown if a pup_save.2fs file already exists and I select to run in ram at bootup. The earlier versions used to provide this option.

mbe,
This is bad:
PDEV1=''
DEV1FS=''

Puppy should have identified these at bootup.
What is your GRUB entry in menu.lst for this frugal installation?

frugal install
with puppy 4.xx frugal install on 32bit partition,
no option to pup_save file.

Barry content of my Grub menu entry
title puppy linux 4 beta (v3.98)
kernel (hd0,6) /vmlinz BOOT_IMAGE=puppy_4_beta_on_hda7
initrd (hd0,6)/initrd
adding extra line pmedia=idehd made no difference
however in my case there is a workaround. By editing /etc/rc.d/PUPSTATE and adding ext3 (or vfatbut not XX) between the quotes on the DEV1FS='' line the save option appears normally on shutdown.
Hope this helps.

before you ask - last line of grub menu item actually reads initrd (hd0,6)/initrd.gz
