I'm interested for myself to get LuPu 528 version 6 on this netbook. Since this is newer, I should be able to get it to work. Here is what I get when I try to boot into it:

Does your menu.lst entry for Lup528 look very close to this?
( my installed directory is lupu3hd286 )
Code:
title Luci 001 (sda5/lupu3hd286)
  uuid 00aa0274-75d7-402d-ab7c-4e0f2d973e6a
  kernel /lupu3hd286/vmlinuz  pmedia=atahd psubdir=lupu3hd286 pfix=fsck
  initrd /lupu3hd286/initrd.gz



The options in the kernel line the same?

Browser Linux (Lupu 510) boots but Lupu 528 doesn't although it does get pretty far before it throws the error. I am looking into the "unable to read inode block" error I posted about a few posts back. I hope it doesn't mean there is something wrong with my hard drive. I don't know why this is the only one with that error. When the other computer becomes free, I'll try to boot on that.


Code:
title Lupu 510 (sda4/Browser_Linux501)
uuid 7008eae6-e062-46e1-ab45-8cdcee478fad
kernel /Browser_Linux501/vmlinuz psubdir=Browser_Linux501 pmedia=atahd pfix=fsck
initrd /Browser_Linux501/initrd.gz

title Lupu 528 (sda4/Lucid_Puppy5.2.8.6)
uuid 7008eae6-e062-46e1-ab45-8cdcee478fad
kernel /Lucid_Puppy5.2.8.6/vmlinuz psubdir=Lucid_Puppy5.2.8.6 pmedia=atahd pfix=fsck
initrd /Lucid_Puppy5.2.8.6/initrd.gz

All the puppies booted up properly on the desktop computer. The remaining problems with booting must be with this computer and the older puppies conflicts with it. Thanks for all your help.

Hopefully, one of the puppies will work nicely with the 128M Ram computer at my son's school and the teacher will be impressed.

I'll still investigate the unable to read inode error.

One other thing. Is it easy to setup multiple puppies to share a single swap file?

they all use pupswap.swp .... as to where they will look for it its hard to say but I have a feeling it would be in the root of the install folder...in your case that would be the same place...time to suck it and see.

Can't say whats upsetting lupu but is it the newer kernel version?
Perhaps post in the lucid bug thread about whats happening...if there was a disk problem nothing would work.

Agreed the netbook won't get on with the older pups...intel wanted to promote vista at the time and life was made hard for linux for a while.

128MB ram...should get a desktop..... browseing might be another matter Smile...but as a school project that may not matter.

Had 2 bad blocks that were found and fixed by (I think) e2fsck. Am running in LuPu 528 in my netbook.

Ah well there ya go.... so lucid was less tolerant than the others.... unless the bad blocks coincided with where tha lucid files where.

we may never know Smile

so sounds like everything sorted in some fashion?
