RE: Puppy Linux 4.08 x-server dies

I'm guessing it is probably something to do with the x server, but i just woke up, so give me a minute to remember why i bothered to reply before getting my coffee....

Did you have the same version of murgaLua in the earlier Puppy version? If so, I'd think even more seriously that it might be an issue with Puppy.

What I would do first is check the Xorg log. If I didn't see anything interesting there, I'd redirect all output from the window manager to a file (which I already do anyway), and check that out after a crash. If you do "exec mywindowmanager &>filename" from .xinitrc (assuming Puppy uses .xinitrc) it should pick up all messages from murgaLua as well as those from other apps that might be doing something wrong at the time.
