Browser linux (based of puppy)
I have installed browser linux 501 on my old compaq presario v5000 and it has a bad battery so sometimes when the charger comes unplugged and i dont notice it will die and when i turn it back on it starts to boot like normal but i get logged into a text mode that isnt quite bash shell and i am logged in as tty1 i believe so i just reinstall the OS but i dont want to do that does anyone know what i can do to prevent this or fix this at the shell screen i get?
