Your first line is wrong - it looks for the initrd.gz, not the sfs.
Try this:

Code:
title pUPnGo2012
  find --set-root --ignore-floppies  /initrd.gz
  kernel /vmlinuz  pmedia=usbflash pfix=fsck
  initrd /initrd.gz

Sorry ... no go. With that first line Lupu-528 (partition with grub4dos) is called up. Put files back into a subdir. /pUPnGo with first line as:

find --set-root --ignore-floppies /pUPnGo/initrd.gz .... back to "pup-412.sfs not found ... dropping out to ram-disk console".

Update: Burned pUPnGo2012 ,iso to CD ..... loads fine ... no eth0. KJ

"pup-412.sfs not found " seems not to be a rare occurence. It happened to me with Slaxer on a USB stick once. Put it on a CF card in an IDE adapter and it worked fine. Not sure what the stick was formatted as. Have you tried moving the directory to a ext2/3 partition?

emil: No devx for pupngo Crying or Very sad Everything made in P412 with P412-devx but admitted: a devx for pupngo with a toolchain to do everything static build would be soo nice...
KJ:Cant help with the grub4dos-stuff - never used it...You should run the firstboot (the Question icon on desktop) and answer yes to autoconnect. Alternative run netstart at a prompt. If your netdriver is loaded you should connect.
There is a usb-install wizard under menu "System" but it requires that you can point to the iso-image-file...It will formate the hole usb to ext2 and install everything to boot from the usb-stick...

AND THEN THE FIRST SEVERE BUG FOUND: Save to CD/DVD fails due to an error with mkisofs (it saves but not in a folder with the date and time). I will fix that and upload a new iso soon. Sorry!

It works. Posting from pUPnGo 2012 now with Dillo using live CD and auto-connect. Thanks for the advise ... will try the wifi and usb later.

Goingnuts ... I have followed your work on this project for a long time but haven't had the nerve to actually try to load a version as my CLI (and general typing) skills are poor.

Thanks for the help. KJ

Posting wirelessly - Linksys pcmcia wifi card using b43 module and WPA-PSK.
Had to copy the firmware in, and also copied in dhcpcd and supporting libs. Not sure if it was needed, but it has took me a few attempts to get this far. Also knocked up a udhcpc.conf, but I think the wireless manager gives preference to dhcpcd. It threw out a load of errors and warnings but got there in the end.

KJ:Thanks for testing! And good you got connected!
KeefThanks for sharing you findings - I did some trial as well but havent got it working yet. I also started to look after a good wifi-front/backend. Now where gtkdialog and Xdialog is in it might be easier to adapt exsisting wifi managers...Any suggestions to which to try?

I started to modify wifibox from Slitaz as I like the interface - but realized that it does not do the wpa-supplicant - which I need to connect to my wpa2 network...
Also tried the pwireless2-1.0 in my normal P412 but no luck there as well...Might give it another try though...
The standard networkwizard in P412 works but its a bit difficult to modify..

I use sns in wary for WiFi, but it will periodically disconnect and not automatically reconnect. I haven't tried jemimah's frisbee, but the code looked ok. Everyone seems to want to overcomplicate it. I am working mostly with the wary kernel, since it is the oldest one that is still regularly maintained...so I may end up with something that may not work 100% Does anyone have hardware that works in pupngo but not wary?

PostPosted: Fri 15 Jun 2012, 13:03    Post subject: pUPnGo 2012 on a partitioned flashdrive  

Keef ... Your suggestion is correct ... pPUnGo2012 does need a ext partition (I have not ran into that issue before but could have guessed from goingnuts's installation comments). So I made a small ext2 partition (128MB) on my usb flashdrive (actually a 8GB SD with a mix of ext2 and fat32 partitions (10 different pup versions) in a usb convertor). Moved the main files (vmlinuz, initrd.gz, pup_412pupngo.sfs, and zdrv_412.sfs) there with the .sfs's in a subdir (Bootpupngo) and it now boots fine (but will not save) with this grub4dos menu.lst entry:

title pupngo
find --set-root --ignore-floppies /Bootpupngo/pup_412pupngo.sfs
kernel /vmlinuz pmedia=usbflash psubdir=Bootpupngo pfix=fsck
initrd /initrd.gz

Overkill I am sure but this is the way all my other menu.lst entries read. If you place the .sfs's and save file in a psubdir (Bootxxx), most puppies will only look in that dir. so you don't end up with a confusing list of frugal save files and boot problems from other puppy versions you have on your drives.

goingnuts ... FYI I copied the rest of the .iso files onto this partition and pUPnG02012 would not save ... just shutdown. I will find a small usbflash to wipe and run your 'install to usb' option. Tried you "bad" save back to CD option ... yep ... will not boot. Will wait for your fix before I try that again. Thanks ... KJ

technosaurus: Thanks for the pointers! Began to work with sns but I havent the full source code so got stuck (cut the parts out of Wary but havent localised everything needed). And yes - many wireless frontends/backends seems to get very complicated - that why I tried to do one myself...

KJ: Thanks for testing! New iso uploaded where I put back the firmwarestuff in zdrv, added dhcpcd, full wirelesstools package and fixed the save2CD/DVD. cdplay now in menu as well.
Increased size by 4MB but now I can connect to my wpa2 network using the wireless.sh script. Hope that goes for the other network types as well - but I cant test.
Download updated version pUPnGO 2012
update: had to upload new iso - sorry and my apology to the 15 downloads done today! (reason false symlink to losetup - not that severe - but might make mount of ntfs unstable)

goingnuts: D/Led updated .iso and copied new files to my usb/SD partition ... booted and network connection good .... have not tried wifi yet. Does not save (expected).

Completely erased rw-cd and burned new iso. Booted fine .... network good. Saved back to CD (external USB burner) completed .... but no reboot (same as with previous iso). Sorry ... My laptop internal CD/DVD drive is bad so I run an external drive. Thanks ... KJ

KJ: thanks for testing! About cd-save: Are you able to view the content of the cd after saving? Do you have the original files present plus a folder with this structure: "2012-06-16-23-05"?
After saving to CD one time the content of my CD is:
Code:
total 33945
drwxrwxrwt 12 root root     2048 2012-06-17 07:00 2012-06-16-23-05
-r--r--r--  1 root root     2048 2012-06-16 22:51 boot.cat
-rwxr--r--  1 root root     2048 2012-05-09 21:28 boot.catalog
-rw-r--r--  1 root root     1066 2012-06-16 22:51 boot.msg
-rw-r--r--  1 root root   776017 2012-06-16 22:51 initrd.gz
-rwxr-xr-x  1 root root    13931 2012-06-16 19:21 isolinux.bin
-rw-r--r--  1 root root      113 2012-06-16 22:51 isolinux.cfg
-rwx------  1 root root 16842752 2012-06-16 22:50 pup_412pupngo.sfs
-rw-r--r--  1 root root  1704076 2012-01-11 18:20 vmlinuz
-rwx------  1 root root 15413248 2012-06-16 14:55 zdrv_412.sfs

If structure looks ok try to boot (just a guess as you say reboot gives problems...)

Looks like yours except for the first two entries (and total size). I did firstrun auto setup eth0 and add some bookmarks to Dillo before the save.

In all fairness to your hard work ... this is my first use of live-cd with save-to-cd and I don't know if any puppy will boot after a save-to-cd and shutdown on my system. I will burn another puppy version and try a save-to-cd to see if that works. May be a couple days before I get that done.

First I booted the new iso then selected 'reboot' from the shutdown menu then 'save to CD' and watched the save info on the screen and the OS shutdown and booted from the HD (no puppies there) not the CD. Next I shutdown the computer .... waited a minute and booted the laptop ... external usb cd burner spins up but boot is from another source (external usb CD is BIOS first choice, then usb HDD (flashdrives boot here), then internal HDD). CD mounts and reads OK but no longer boots... have read some text files OK. Thanks ...KJ

PostPosted: Mon 18 Jun 2012, 10:08    Post subject: Save to CD  

goingnuts: I tried saving Lucid 510 back to CD ... and it no longer boots (pUPnGo2012 is the first iso I burned in a while). Guess my laptop (Acer Aspire 5570Z) doesn't like something common in the save-to-CD process.

One observation, Some of the fonts (smaller ones seen in Dillo home page) are really hard to read. Thanks KJ
