Good day!
I am running Bionicpup64 latest version (official Puppy).
After completing Savefolder backup, using Pupsave backup, this message remains on the screen and does not disappear. I have to restart X to make it disappear.

Yes, I am sure.
Today, I have made another Pupsave backup. I am running in Pupmode13.
The pupsave backup has been completed successfuly at 17.54. The message was on the screen after the backup was completed at 17.55. Then I left PC untouched for ten minutes, and at 18.06 this message still was on screen.
This happens every time when I perform Pupsave Backup.

/usr/sbin/pupsave-backup, lines 179+:
Code:
if [ $? -eq 0 ] ; then
   show_splash "Saving session to save${type} ..." &
   snapmergepuppy
   kill $pidx
else

Remove the ampersand at the end of the 2nd line and see if it helps.
The show_splash function already sends the relevant process to the background, so there's no need for & in the above line.

Greetings!

G'day,

An updated/revised version of the hot-save-backup by forum member glene77is is here:
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=118076

It works for me in 32-bit and 64-bit Pups so far (desktop and laptop computers), and is a little quicker than the original hot-save-backup.

Davis S.

I followed SFR advice, and now the message disappears as it should be. Pupsave backup now works correctly! Thank you SFR for your help!
davids45, thank you for links to new version, but I did not used it, because my problem is solved, and I do not need it for now.
