Boot cheat codes are given at the boot puppy screen. A live cd boot should be able to handle this. I hope. Like I said. I don't run full installs of Puppy linux. Just frugal installs.
I may be talking rubbish here, and this is a hunch, but have you tried booting with
at the 5 second bootscreen from a live CD boot
I think it should still pick up the filesystem from the hard drive, ..... but may be wrong
pfix=purge is the filesystem repair parameter, AFAIK
Later on in that same thread is said.
Note: The below statement was done in a live cd session. Hardrive was probably mounted with pmount. Then all content in /tmp folder was deleted.
faced with the same problem in 4.1.2 I have found your posting and did exactly as you recommend - deleted all the contents of /tmp/ folder
and this has solved the problem - I was able to restart with no problem
Thread in case you want to read it.
Notice the title says full install, not frugal.
