wbstartup

Hi,

Just to tell you guys that i had a problem with wbstartup after removing
a harddisk wich had a link in wbstartup to a program on that harddisk
while it was not marked.

Had to boot with no startup-sequence and run wbstartup from amiga-dos
and remove the link to that program.

The workbench hangs and the center wbstartup window
with the wbstartup program icons does not appear.

after the splash screen appears, press and hold the two mouse buttons, enter in the early startup menu and boot without startup sequence. When the shell appears enter:
"loadwb" without quotes and press enter then:
"endcli" and again press enter.

The system should load without problems, now look for a file called "backdrop" in the sys: partition. Edit the file and remove the link that look for the missing hard drive..

I do not know if recent systems have this problem because i
run OS4.1 update 1 (iso) on the SE.

But i guess if new users run into this problem that it is not
easy to solve it. My idea is that if you unmark the program
then wbstartup should not look up for that program on boot-up
as the user does not want it.

btw, I did a mistake, because you were looking for a solution about wbstartup and i was telling you how to solve with wb link, that's different..

Try to load the wb without startup sequence and see if you can run wbstartup prefs program and remove manually the program..

I guess if you have a program in wbstartup and you place it for
example in an other drawer and you reboot your system that
you will run in to the same problem here.

Can someone verify this on a newer system?

You can skip WBStartUp by holding down a key at boot. Can never remember which one though. Shift? Ctrl? Alt?

Seems like wbstartup does the job wel if the program is not
on his place but the device is present, it just moves on.

I have done an extra test by copying the clock and notepad to
an other harddisk and put them in wbstartup. Then removed
the harddisk and the workbench hangs again afther a boot.

i just tried the following with the current update:
- copied commodity to partition "test:".
- added commodity to wbstartup - restarted - all fine
- renamed "test:" to "test-x:" - should behave like removing partition
- restart
wbstartup now asks to insert device "test:". which i can abort two/three times. then everything goes on just like normal.

maybe you should simply install the updates at a start?!

It might be something wrong whit the program, anyway. Or it might need to start before workbench is started or the screen is open, some programs do not support starting from wbstartup.

Default for Workbench3.x/4.0, you need to edit the icon tooltype add "DONOTWAIT", if you start a program from wbstartup, the same things should be available in wbstartup prefs in AmigaOS4.1.

Yes, they are, except that the DONOTWAIT tooltype has been "translated" into a checkbox, and its meaning is "reversed", i.e. you need to make sure the checkbox (at the bottom of the icon information window when opened from WBStartup prefs) is NOT checked.

It's called "Wait until finished" now

...You can also hold down the Ctrl key (either one on a PC keyboard) or the middle mouse button (if you have one); this will make the system boot without Startup-Sequence, just like it would do if you selected it from the Early Startup Menu. And if instead you hold down either one of the Shift or Alt keys (including Alt Gr on a PC keyboard), the system will boot without starting anything from the WBstartup drawer; a similar effect to what you would see if you renamed the WBstartup drawer and rebooted...

If I remember correct there is no wbstartup directory in AmigaOS4.1 (But you might have one, its more side effect of trying excalibur, the installation script create a directory if its missing, I did not like it being removed, due to legacy.)

Now fixed on the wiki along with a few other things.
