Woof uploaded, January 3, 2010

I have just uploaded the latest Woof.

One thing that I have done is remove Shinobar's 'pupsaveconfig'. After using it for awhile, I feel that there are too many questions and steps at shutdown. Also, as I run my puppies from live-CD and do a lot of rebooting, I got very annoyed having to reinsert the CD and press ENTER key each time.

I can conceive of a simpler way of implementing an X GUI for the pupsave, so will revisit this later.

Interesting, this was my first need to use 'bones diff' to compare the commits where Shinobar's changes were introduced, and I was easily able to restore the previous files.

too many questions?
A Puppy New Year, Barry!

Tnx for testing my GUI, pupsaveconfig.

You sais>there are too many questions and steps at shutdown.

Strange! I have just tryed to keep your messages and questions at shutdown. The original rc.shutdown brings many questions and steps. My pupsaveconfig is not more or less.

anyway i am looking forward to the simpler GUI.

Re pupsaveconfig
I would have to look at again to recall exactly.

One thing I think was when I choose Menu>Shutdown>Poweroff computer, up came the X GUI, and I just accepted everything by clicking OK buttons, then I had to choose Menu>Shutdown>Poweroff again to shutdown.

Your implementation is good, but I'll hack it to suit me

too many questions??

not enough questions! add one more question, "Do you want to see the GUI (or whatever it is called)on the next shut down". also need to have a toggle for which shutdown or gui/process, in the main menu. problem solved.
