I just downloaded it and checked the Md5 and it was fine.
Video of me grabbing it can be found here: http://slackbones.org/downloading_slackbones.mpg

Try grabbing it again.

I tried again, this time the .iso was 204 mb and the md5sum's still don't match.

i just downloaded precise and precise-devx without issue, md5's all matched.

the download is apparently being cut off at your end for some reason. maybe your isp is resetting you connection.
have you tried to dl with the wget command?
if all else fails download through a brower that supports resuming downloads (opera for example)

This is a significant contribution to the Puppy community to say the least. Slackbones is impressive. I was surprised by the 309 mb download until I saw that it includes 200 mb of 'extras' like the kernel source and devx along with the other add-ons.

As it seems to have similarities to Fatdog I am wondering, does it need the fatdog-mount-helper-fix.pet to be safely used alongside other distros like Mint & Ubuntu?

@jamesbond

Hey, no problem. This is a prototype , right?

A couple more questions, if you don’t mind;
I noticed that pmount from Fatdog is included, even though there is no mention of it that I have seen. Are there any other Puppy/Fatdog specific utilities in there like resize-save-file etc.?

Lastly, is it safe to assume the boot parameters from Fatdog 6.11 also apply to Slackbones?

Just so you know, I’m quite enthusiastic about Slackbones. It’s like a bare-bones Fatdog on steroids, and I’m a huge fan of Fatdog!

Many thanks to Q5sys and jamesbond, and anyone else involved.

This version has already has been remastered and burned as a pure UDF blu-ray bootable puppy. Which is a first. All other puppies that could boot had to be a nasty hybrid of old-iso and UDF that only booted a few versions of Wary. Likewise the mount program provided mounted and read UDF directly, nicely done.

Out of topic, but this is very interesting. I know of no program, open source or otherwise, that will create a pure UDF bootable disc. How did you do that? Did you use mkudffs and then craft your own Eltorito boot sector by hand? Does it work only on EFI machines, or does it work with BIOS machines too?


growisofs: remove -D -R add -iso_level=3 and -udf everything else stays. I posted the code else where on the forum. Cool yes EFI boot loader and standard bootloader can exist on the same disc-image, but its a order thing that redhat worked out but with confusing code. BTW UDF can be burned on CD or DVD as well as Blu-ray disks, its just a format. I burn UDF to R/W-DVDs for most testing since I have so many. Rolling Eyes

is there code to rewrap sfs into intrd. Still on a learning curve with this method of running a puppy version.

I have uploaded the main ISO image to the smokey01 server. You may want to add a link in the main post, and a mention to include jamesbond's mount fix to puplet builders.


slackbones-v1.0-x86_64.iso

md5 checksum (same as orig)

Cheers!

JamesBond will have to chime in here, but from what I remember from our many discussions a while back while we were working on this... is that part of it is/was going to be the base for the next (610) release of FatDog. But thats not to say that FatDog is specifically based on this entirely. FD610 has a older Kernel than Slackbones.
Slackbones was designed to be at the very cutting edge, yet as bareboned as possible.
A newer kernel is availbale, but we havent released it yet.
The Custom Slackbones Repo is in Alpha stage right now, everything is working fine at the moment on my local network. I havent shifted it over to my online server to put it through its paces at this point. Still trying work in some extra features that meeki and I are working on.
v2 of slackbones might include the repo... it all depends on when I decide im comfortable with its performance and confident that it'll scale up to anyone using it.
