Sorry Fred 2 bug yoU again, I've installed this DDog again ( it's pretty good! ) on a Different PC Dual Booting w/ the Cursed M$ windoze X, Frugally on the NTFS Partition. But the Create SaveFile isn't working. it indicates that it iz Creating saveme.dat on my USB Flash Dr that I've Booted from, rather than sda2/live/ on the Laptop Hard Dr. But it doesn't! ( my intended work around wood have been 2 simply move it there from me USB Flash Dr ) & also I'm not given a choice of where 2 Create the saveme.dat File.

Also when I ReBooted the DDog I lost M$ windoze 10 ( it's Gone AWOL from the menu.lst ), I Suppoze it Natively Boots from the Hidden sda1 Partition, But I don't know which File & How 2 Edit & Merge them.

Please Help, Thanx

Hi Max, I'm not sure how to help, which DDog is this, Simplicity or Busterdog ?
(Simplicity is based on StretchDog, so things should work the same, but I'm not certain)
One advice: don't use more than one 'Dog' install with 'live' on the root of a partition.
Better use unique folder name with 'live' folder inside (otherwise may conflict with each other)
So why you can't move the created saveme.dat to 'live' to the NTFS partition ?

If your bootloader is grub4dos, you should be able to boot Windows, example entry in menu.lst (if Windows is on sda1):
Code:
title Load BOOTMGR of Windows 10
root (hd0,0)
chainloader /bootmgr

*** Install Buster-Backports kernel ***

New package "upgrade-kernel-buster-bpo"

Big improvement compared to earlier package (similar, for stretch-backports) is that it doesn't depend on updated 'aufs-dkms' version
(aufs-dkms version is often behind, v 5.2 in sid repo, latest buster-backports kernel is currently at 5.4)
The script will now download aufs directly from aufs-standolone github repository https://github.com/sfjro/aufs5-standalone according to the chosen kernel version (currently latest is 5.4) and build aufs module with dkms.
So, when latest backports kernel will be 5.5 in the future, building aufs should still work, as it will download and build corresponding aufs version.

Deb install:
https://github.com/doglinux/busterdog/raw/master/i386/upgrade-kernel-buster-bpo_1.0.0_all.deb
Or: install 'upgrade-kernel-buster-bpo' with synaptic or apt.

Hi Fred:

I have a Buster Starter Kit machine with the 5.2 backports kernel and it works well.

I briefly tried the 5.3 kernel but I had shutdown problems. The machine would hang up and require a hard reboot. I never investigated the issue, but went back to 5.2.

I have just tried 5.4 and it looks OK. No such shutdown trouble.

Hi Bill, good to know, thanks for testing.

Removed the 5.3 backports kernel now from github, I also had (other) problems with it.
(it was first time experiment with the "aufs-dkms hack", may have made a mistake back then, now I think I got it working correctly though)

Fred

Hi Fred,
Could you please explain to lesser mortals like myself why it would be a good idea to do this. I am also a bit confused as to whether it just needs to be installed by one of the two methods you suggest or whether there is more to it than that.

Regards,

Ken.

Hi Fred,

Hi Ken, some may have reasons to install newer/newest kernel, just stay with the standard installed kernel (4.19) if it's fine for you.

I think you mean installing single .deb package or install with synaptic/apt.
No difference in the result, a single .deb file you can install with right-click "Install deb"
Synaptic and apt will only install from repository packages index.

Fred

Hi Fred,
Thanks for your reply and advice. I think I will just stick with the 4.19 kernel as busterdog is working fine for me as is.

Regards,

Ken.

Works for me, I did a build with network-manager-gnome and gnome-keyring installed.
It connects well, WIFI too, posting from it now.
What exactly can not work for you ? nm-applet doesn't start or what ?, details please about what you tried.

Fred

*** New option "+EXIT" added for porteus-boot ***

See also Here (and posts above it)
In short:
When using "+EXIT" the changes will NOT run in memory, which can be an advantage, specially when you have small amount of RAM.
(with the "normal" EXIT: configuration, the amount of space in / is limited to 60% (default) of the amount of RAM you have).

To be able to use "+EXIT", a new initrd1.xz must be created, therefore:
- Install latest "upgrade-kernel" v1.0.0
https://github.com/doglinux/busterdog/raw/master/amd64/upgrade-kernel_1.0.0_all.deb
- Run from menu > System > Make initrd (see pic below)
- When done, copy /tmp/initrd1.xz to your "live" frugal install folder and replace the existing initrd1.xz
- Reboot and use for example on the kernel boot line:
Code:
changes=+EXIT:/buster_dog/live

fredx181 long time no see you. I see you been busy.

So "+EXIT" is an option for people with low ram.

Can you tell me wore about? I mean, before temporay/unsave changes where kept in RAM until poweroff when they where permanently save to disk.

Now the question is: Where are the temporay/unsave changes been kept with "+EXIT". I guess in another temporary folder on disk?

Hi enrique,

Quote:

Yes, say you have only 1GB RAM, then with 'normal' EXIT: option you'd have only 0.6 GB space in /, e.g. install a few big programs, or download some video's and soon there's no free space left anymore.
Check with:
Code:
df -h /

My output (booted with +EXIT):
Code:
Filesystem      Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on
aufs            163G  142G   13G  92% /

Frugal install is on my sda7 partition, 13G space left , so also in /

Quote:
Now the question is: Where are the temporay/unsave changes been kept with "+EXIT". I guess in another temporary folder on disk?

Yes on disk, in the same folder as where changes= is specified, there will be a "tmp-changes" folder, so for example using savefolder:
Code:
changes=+EXIT:/buster_dog/

the "tmp-changes" folder will be in "buster_dog"
Same when using savefile, e.g.
Code:
changes=+EXIT:/buster_dog/mychanges.dat

(but must be on Linux filesystem, not FAT or NTFS)

Fred
