How To Avoid Loading Save-File


There are two ways to avoid a Puppy picking up pup save files on a frugal installation. This allows you to make a fresh pup save file when you shutdown/reboot.

Make Puppy give you the choice of save-file (method 1)

1. Make a copy of your original save-file.

for example,
if original save-file is called lupusave-name.xfs
make a copy, calling the new one something like lupusave-name2.xfs

retain the basic naming convention lupusave-<name>.<2/3>fs

2. Reboot, Puppy it will give the opinion of which save-file to load, but also the opinion 0 - not to load any save-file.


Prevent Puppy loading any savefiles (method 2)

Depending on your installation, if you have the Puppy boot screen
it allows different settings to be used:-

puppy pfix=ram
