Hi,
making a new trial, here are all the command line comments:
Quote:
# sh ./install-quirky-to-drive.sh

This script will install Quirky to an entire drive, and make it bootable
with the Syslinux boot manager, for any x86 PC.
The intention is to install to pluggable memory drives such as USB Flash
sticks and SD-cards. The entire drive is erased, so take off any files that
you want to keep.
The script will ask questions at each step, and will offer a choice of
drives to install to, but of course it comes down to you to make an intelligent
choice and not erase your PCs internal hard drive!
This script should work when running any Linux distribution, however, it
works best when running a Puppy Linux or Puppy Linux-derivative, as Puppy has,
in my opinion, many superior utilities. However, this script will check for
existence or otherwise of those utilities and downgrade appropriately, or
abort if a missing utility is essential.

Press ENTER key to continue (CTRL-C to abort):

1 quirky-6.0.1.usfs.xz

Type number of image file: 1
...ok, have chosen quirky-6.0.1.usfs.xz

Testing integrity of compressed file, please wait...

Plug in a USB Flash drive, 2GB size, or greater, right now.
Also, please be sure that it is unmounted.
Note, 2GB is sufficient, however for a satisfactory ongoing experience
using Quirky, it is recommended to use a 4GB or greater drive. If you intend
to keep using this installation on a daily basis, to allow for plenty of
package installations, upgrades, downloads, etc., a much bigger drive is
recommended, at least 8GB.

WARNING: Many Linux distros will auto-mount a drive when it is plugged
in. You will have to unmount it BEFORE CONTINUING!!!
(if you are unsure about this, don't worry, the script will
check again later, after you have chosen the drive)

Hi charlie6,
Ah! You have produced a nice Christmas tree decoration there! Smile Laughing
Things start to fall apart at this point:

Code:
mkdosfs 3.0.13 (30 Jun 2012)
/dev/sdc1: No such file or directory
Installing syslinux in 1st partition, sdc1...
Usage: syslinux [-sfr][-d directory][-o offset] device
Creating 2nd partition, size 7304MB...


So no file system is created on the 16 Meg Fat partition. Before suspecting a bug in the install script you may wish to try the following:

1. Use Gparted in a working Pup to create a new partition table then a single FAT32 partition spanning all of the target stick. Then run chkdsk or its equivalent on the stick to check that you have a clean target to work with.

2. Try running the script again but first unplug those other sticks (sdb & sdd) so that the only stick in the system is the clean target stick.

3. If that fails try with another stick or card.

If things go well this is what you should see on the first partition. (Plus one hidden file)

Hi EDP,
thanks for bringing lights to my Xtmas tree ... Wink

Good news:

here are some more stuffs:
- after perfoming your recommandations:
and even changed may USB key to a 4GB one, no success
so i have guessed the problem could be present in wheezy-3.5.2.11 which does'nt have f2fs stuffs present (i had to bring mkfs.f2fs and libf2fs ewtracted from quirky-6.0.1.sfs ... Embarassed as i assumed they could be distro-independent)

- now installing from raring-3.9.9.2 which has f2fs stuffs, the USB memory is reported to be pouplated.

That's it, sdc is now ready to boot from!

If you want to create a copy of the drive, as an image file, for deployment
to other users, the total size is 1M + 16M + 7M + 3704
which is: 3728MB
An image can be created like this:
# dd if=/dev/sdc bs=4M count=932 | xz --compress --stdout -9 - > quirky-6.0.1-4gb.img.xz

If you do not want to do this, just press ENTER to end script,
otherwise, (leaving drive plugged in) press any char then ENTER:


now i must leave ...more results in a next post
Cheers, charlie

Hi charlie6,
That’s great news. Barry did in his release notes state “must be running a reasonably recent Linux distribution”.

You have confirmed that raring-3.9.9.2 works and I can confirm that Precise 5.7.1 works. (They both contain suitable f2fs & dos tools)
Merry Christmas.

Hi charlie6,
This Pup will just not come to heel! Smile I am guessing that the hidden syslinux bootloader file (ldlinux.sys) has not made it onto the FAT16 partition. If so, there is definitely something amiss with the install script. All is not lost however if on the second partition all of the directories and their contents as shown in the attached screenshot are present and you are willing to try the install method that I described in my first post in this thread.
As a quick check, without making any changes or copying any files, just flash the image onto a stick and see if your bios can get to the boot menu. If it does, select shutdown and think about what you want to do.

Hi ETP,
many thanks for your time !
There is no .ldlinux.sys file present on the flash key.

Hi @BarryK

Thanks for this project. New refinements as this evolution depicts.

Questions
Understanding the work which has been done for the distro's installation to Flash/HDD units, will there be a DVD/Blu-ray (ISO) for distro's RAM-only operations produced?

Any insights on this versus the past would be helpful if the direction in this area is changing. For example, is it true that session files have no play in this current incarnation of Quirky?

Thanks and have a Happy Holiday Season...Everyone
Edit: 2nd question.


No, there will never be an iso.

That's right, no session files.

Any chance we can boot to ram? Back in the 2.0 puppylinux days I was able to take a full install and compress that image into initrd.gz and do a standard boot with kernel and initrd using whatever frugal or my case testing multisession loader code.


No, Quirky6 is only designed as a full install. No initrd.gz either.

1 quirky-6.0.1.usfs.xz

Type number of image file: 1
...ok, have chosen quirky-6.0.1.usfs.xz

Testing integrity of compressed file, please wait...

Plug in a USB Flash drive, 2GB size, or greater, right now.
Also, please be sure that it is unmounted.
Note, 2GB is sufficient, however for a satisfactory ongoing experience
using Quirky, it is recommended to use a 4GB or greater drive. If you intend
to keep using this installation on a daily basis, to allow for plenty of
package installations, upgrades, downloads, etc., a much bigger drive is
recommended, at least 8GB.

WARNING: Many Linux distros will auto-mount a drive when it is plugged
in. You will have to unmount it BEFORE CONTINUING!!!
(if you are unsure about this, don't worry, the script will
check again later, after you have chosen the drive)

Have you plugged in the drive? Then press ENTER key:

These are all of the drives found in your PC:
sda|drive|ATA SAMSUNG SP20A1H
sdb|usbdrv| USB Flash Memory
sdc|usbdrv| USB Flash Memory
sdd|usbdrv|ST3300822A
sr0|optical|TOSHIBA DVD-ROM SD-M1712
sr1|optical|PIONEER DVD-RW DVR-116D

Choose the drive to install to...
1 sda
2 sdb
3 sdc
4 sdd
5 sr0
6 sr1

Type a number from left column: 3
...ok, have chosen sdc

It looks like you need the syslinux 4.05 PET.

Subject description: (Possible solution)
 

A number of people have reported this issue having failed to produce a bootable stick.

The problem surrounds the following block of code in the install script in conjunction with the unknown and variable version of syslinux included in the Pup that they happen to be using to run the script.

Code:
echo "Installing syslinux in 1st partition, ${TARGETDRIVE}${PARTNUM1}..."
if [ "$(syslinux -v 2>&1 | grep -i 'syslinux [23]')" = "" ];then
 syslinux --install /dev/${TARGETDRIVE}${PARTNUM1} #need --install for 4.05.
else
 #syslinux 3.x does not recognise --install option
 syslinux /dev/${TARGETDRIVE}${PARTNUM1}
fi
sync

This uncertainty IMHO, needs to be eliminated. Given that syslinux 4.05 is included in the latest Quirky one possible solution might be to change the order of the script such that the second partition on the stick is populated first. Syslinux 4.05 that then would be present on it could be targeted and used to install the ldlinux.sys on the first partition.
Merry Xmas to all.

.iso
By chance, stumbled upon:
http://bleedux.wordpress.com/2010/11/11/burn-isoimg-image/
which describes ccd2iso utility and some of its idio(t!)synchrocies.
Haven't tried it though and there do appear to be some caveats so feedback would bring enormous benefits for the silent majority struggling with the present presentation.
