even though Puppy Linux is highly configurable it does suffer from some lack of booting features. One that has come to my attention during experimentation is from the Pebbles Bootsplash – fantastic! that we are able to create our own bootsplash with a fair amount of ease except it completely disassociates you with boot-up verbosity.
What’s the problem there? So what if I don’t see the the Kernel Mdule is loading… Well, unfortunately I experienced a power outage due to not having the laptop connected to the mains. boot-up would! Usually you would see a message – type in xwin, startx or reboot to get things going again. But I couldn’t see the message and all those commands would not work. So working with a lot of faith I ‘rm /etc/.XLOADED’ then xwin and it worked! I think I need to modify xwin a little so that it automatically executes that command
But the point being I couldn’t see what I was doing…. mmm may need to resaerch a bit more into Pebbles bootsplash.
