have been on Bionicpup64 for 2 weeks and Quirky Beaver64, both pups not a true separate OS...

Both on HD install, only quirk!! on Beaver64 is I was only able to install on a whole HD (120G SSD), would have preferred to install to 20G partition but could not do this. Trying to install Bionpicpup64 on the same HD on a separate partition with Grub4Dos bootloader failed to boot....

anyone have a suggestion on how to install both in one HD?

Hi gychang,

I've had a similar problem with Puppy not recognising my save files when I booted it up. What I did was reserve the first partition of my hard drive for Puppy and then do a frugal install, with whatever save files you make going in that partition. Each Puppy live disk will recognise its own save file and boot that one, ignoring the others on the same partition.

(I've only used IDE and SCSI hard drives so far; I assume it's the same for SSDs.)

I've just installed the latest version of Pardus, 17.5 (deepin edition). This is the first distro I've used with deepin as the desktop manager and so far I'm impressed; it looks a lot like Gnome but uses fewer system resources to run, and Pardus itself is a stable and competent distro with little to criticise apart from perhaps the rather dark colour theme (though you get used to that).

I'm just trying Slitaz64 and TinyCore64 again (following my own install instructions given elsewhere on this thread). However, I'm disappointed neither of them has kernel using overlayfs or aufs; there is so much I could do with Slitaz in particular if it did come with one of those. Of course could use specially compiled kernel etc, but I'm not interested in so much effort for a rolling release. I'm not surprised tinycore doesn't have either but thought Slitaz maybe used one or the other, but apparently not - was going to add persistence with it rather than currently having to continually remaster rootfs.gz in Slitaz... Maybe I can find an alternative but I had a plan if only it had worked with overlayfs... oh well.

I know about TazPup and TazDog for that matter, of course, but I wanted to modify pristine Slitaz directly rather than piggyback load them with alternative system/kernel.

EDIT: Having checked out Slitaz site, now seems to me that loram build will include either aufs or overlayfs module inclusion. I will check further.
