You can set the actual pdev1 parameter on your kernel line, this may solve your issue.
For example, if you have a save on sdd1 you'd add this to your kernel line:
Code:
pdev1=sdd1

Hi 01micko,

I am really very sorry to fail you, but I have been unable to do a single worthwhile test on 5.2.3.7 and after almost four hours I've given up.

The problems are with my equipment. Despite recent problems with both my ancient internal hard drives I have eventually decided that my current problem is in burning an error free CD-R or DVD+RW (even though the MD5 checks).

From my point of view my/your 5.3.1 DVD boot and USB stick are still working perfectly; it's very fast on my old desktop, ideally stable and a total saviour.

My regards and thanks

Subject description: flash drive install
 

I've been using my 4gb flash drive install on several computers, 3
with nvidia graphics and my laptop with ati graphics.
The computers with nvidia graphics just needed to rerun xorgwizard and
choose the nvidia driver and the correct resolution (the proprietary
nvidia driver was installed on pc1), also run the network wizard.
On my laptop it booted straight to the desktop and was using the vesa
driver, I downloaded the amd-driver-installer-12-2-x86.x86_64.run and
installed it.I had to run the network wizard to setup the wireless
connection.
It's working very well, amazing what you can get on a 4 gb flash
drive, 2 gb save file and the rest to store sfs files etc.

The grub4dos have seen the menu.lst and then do the "find --set root".
Where is your menu.lst, on the SDcard or on another drive?

PostPosted: Fri 16 Mar 2012, 05:05    Post subject: grub4dos  

shinobar,

the harddisk has 3 partitions: sda1 (ntfs, win XP), sda2 (ntfs, data), sda3 (ext4, lubuntu 11.10). Then I have an SD card slot that registers as a USB drive (sdb1, Slacko).

menu.lst is on sda1. I think that is where grub4dos default puts it (logical choice, since if you remove the SD card, the system can still boot).
The problem is that after I make the selection in the blue screen (so menu.lst is found) I get this error (command line, not a popup).

The problem does not happen when I boot winXP or Lubuntu from the harddrive, so it must have something to do with the card/usb.
The problem is a bit intermittent. Yesterday evening I had 4 or 5 times perfect booting, and the 6'th time I had the problem.

Do you think it may be card related (faster SD card ?), this card is type 6. I may have some "type 10" card laying around, and give that a try later.

Thank you for trying to diagnose this....

Thank you, that fixed it (I had 10+ succesfull boots). Of coarse I used pdev1=sdb1.

Ok, I have tackled the insertion of panel applets, it's quite different to how Jason (plinej) did the original but still uses some of his code.

Seems to work ok in adding and deleting panel icon launchers.

Have fun (and please report success or failure)

I see that 01micko has already made Iron and Chrome 17 packages. By default they Won't Run as Root. Iguleder made a patch. Alternatively it is possible to run them in root by specifying the --user-data-dir as in this command:

Quote:
exec /usr/lib/chrome-linux/chrome --user-data-dir=/root/.config/chromium --disk-cache-size=10000000 --media-cache-size=10000000 "$@"


Latest Chromium-based browsers

Chromium 19 -> ftp://distro.ibiblio.org/puppylinux/pet_packages-slacko/chromium-19.0.1072.0-slacko.pet

Google Chrome 17 -> ftp://distro.ibiblio.org/puppylinux/pet_packages-slacko/google_chrome-17.0.963.79-slacko.pet

Srware Iron 17 -> ftp://distro.ibiblio.org/puppylinux/pet_packages-slacko/iron-17.0.1000.0-slacko.pet

Chromium is the open source development platform so it runs ahead of the other 2. Google Chrome has its own flashplayer built in. Iron removes some of the privacy-compromising features of Google Chrome.

Works fine but I prefer ICEWM for its speed & ease of manipulation. Wink

Works fine but shouldn't it have a menu entry or better yet right-clicking in the area?

Using a 1.5Ghz Centrino Laptop with 1GB RAM.

This distro and the packages installed runs very well on this platform. My steps were as follows to get a full-featured LAN PC
ISO to multi-session CDRW
Installed all the following packages outside of the PPM
SAMBA
JRE
AngryIP
Did a save session with the above 3
Rebooted and installed LibreOffice
Verified all subsystems functioning as expected including shares and share access.
Exercised a Remaster operation to capture all packages into a single ISO
Wiped the CDRW and burned the Remaster single ISO to the CDRW

Rebooted and everything is working harmonyously

I like your new PPM!

However is their any chance of putting the search bar at the top with it's search icon (where all the buttons are now) and having the other buttons at the bottom.
Much more what would be expected...

Ok... I got jealous... Very Happy
So I hacked it a bit to make it control a JWM applications panel. Good for small screens Wink
The attached pet will also generate the (auto-hidden) applications panel on the top of the screen.
It also has a menu entry under "Desktop"

Update v0.2 prompts for Desksetup if present

Update 2 v0.3 allows positioning of the applications panel in any side.
The pet is a bit bigger because it includes the mini icons so it can be used in any puppy

Update 3 v0.4 fixes the addfunction, gives the option to edit entries and looks better Very Happy

Update 5 v0.5 allows to resize the panel "thickness" (hight or width). Also minimizes scenarios that may be messed up by user actions.

Update 6 v0.6 allows reordering of the panel buttons and moved to its own thread
