Question Can I choose a save-file on another drive when using USB Wary Puppy?


I'm really pleased with Wary - it's the best Puppy for me. I find USB stick faster than live CD - and essential for CD work. I've picked up an editing hint to ask "Save this session? (Yes/No)" at close-down - to save wear on my USB stick. That works - but ..

I can save to another drive by meddling with /etc/rc.d/PUPSTATE. That works, but Wary still uses sdb1 save-file on booting, (or thinks it's the first boot-up if I rename the USB save-file). I'm told not to write to my USB stick more than needed! What I'd REALLY like is to choose save-files at boot time, but a simple boot-and-read-save-file-from-sda1 would help?

Simple answer. Yes you can save the personal save file to another drive. Like internal hard drive on laptop or tower,
One can choose which personal save file to load on boot also. I guess you need to read up a bit
on it.

Question Save Wary to another drive?

Thanks for reply - I've tried, but (perhaps because I'm "slow") Wary from USB stick doesn't seem to offer any easy choice of save-file drives. I've previously read at least one of of the URLs in your reply.

I can't even use "puppy pfix=ram" on boot because my Wary Puppy rejects the "puppy" in this line. Wary seems to act "in its own way" in several places? I'm trying to catch up, but ... !
