I didn't have luck with the 'wooflets' so far..
Tried alpha 6 to 8 and all of them dropped out of the booting process when trying to find the sfs; e.g. :

upup-471.sfs not found
...
Hm, that machine doesn't have a harddisk and isn't supposed to keep data (ensuring that I always start with an untouched system)...
Did you do an installation to some media, or do you only boot from CD?

No installation whatsoever. Boot from CD.
At the 5 second prompt type puppy pmedia=cd
Maybe this helps.

nope... Sad
also tried with pfix=ram and pfix=copy combinations; boot debug also didnt show anything helpful.
downloading alpha-9 right now, but i suppose that won't change much.

In the context of a pfix=ram boot, the message 'Searching fo Puppy files in computer disk drives...' strikes me as a bit odd.

Is there a way to mount the cdrom on that console?
Tried mounting via /dev/hd... and /dev/scd0

ok, woof alpha 9 didn't help; but maybe I have a bigger problem on that machine;
seems like >4.1 only works with the retro kernel.

thanks for the help so far, you are great Smile
4.2.1 retro freezes my keyboard though, so i'll try to fix that first and after that reopen my woof issues in the to-be-current woof thread

update: reopened at: http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=42722&start=45

if somebody could comment on these, i would be glad:
