There had been times when people had been too stupid to find the menu.lst and now the puppyinstaller should open the menu.lst by default. That feature was added i think later than Lupu-5.1.1 , so Macpup-528 should have that .


That would be me all right but MacPup isn't finding it either.

Sorry to say that, but somehow you seem to simply have no menu.lst anywhere on the installed drives . I would suggest to post this in the Users Section of the forum, maybe forum member rsnsn51 or whatever his name may recognize you . There are stickies also in the Beginner Section for installation .

I suggest to post there because it involves to post a lot of diagnostic output about your drive(s) setup .

Cheers

Ok, but that shouldn't matter. it should be on the CD at the very least.

I just booted up Racy5.2.2 without a hitch from the CD.

[edit]
It is not too long ago since runtt21 responded to a similar happening (3 month ago):http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=616784#616784

Very rarely the stage 2 grub boot loader we use wont like someone's hardware and it will give a promp like what you are saying

Guessing the burn of multiple .iso to a multi boot dvd of some magazines might not work in some circumstanes

Thats odd !

The live cd uses normally a cpio archive, which has here a name called "bottom"

if i cat ../cpio -d -i it, i get a menu.lst called gfxboot.cfg which should run normally the bootsplash screen :

HA!

Found the problem.

Menu.lst is right where it should be but there's nothing in it.

Now what?

That is the correct menu.lst on the live cd. Just the titles are changed i.e macpup 528 in place of macpup foxy 3.

Rodger did you do a md5sum on your downloads? Either your downloads are bad or your burning software left out the menu.lst info.

El Torito
The format developed by Phoenix Technologies and IBM that has become the standard for creating bootable CD-ROMs on the Intel platform. El Torito provides only the format. In order to make a CD-ROM bootable, the correct boot images must be placed on the disc, and the target computer must be El Torito compliant (all current systems are). El Torito is Spanish for "the little bull." See bootable CD-ROM.


Now informing me of stage2_eltorito lead me to this ^ .

My fault.

The iso was bad. Not by much so it looked ok.

But I downloaded again and that one worked.
