Subject description: /dev/sdb2/slackosave.2fs not loading on boot
 

booting slacko 5.7 from usb flash on /dev/sdb1
/dev/sdb2/slackosave.2fs does not load
sfs loads fine,
but it just boots to default desktop with no saved settings.

boot option puppy debug=7 shows /dev/sdb2 mounting , but it's not finding slackosave.2fs

what else can i check ? i am at loss....

Is dev/sdb2 a partition on the same USB flash drive that has /dev/sdb1?

How did you install Slacko to the USB drive.
What program did you use?

yes /dev/sdb2 a partition on the same usb flash drive as /dev/usb1

i installed slacko 5.7 to usb flash drive /dev/sdb1 using dd:
> dd if = slackopuppy57.iso of=/dev/sdb

/dev/sdb1 filesystem is iso9660
/dev/sdb2 filesystem is ext2

If you just burned the iso image to the USB drive it is setup to burn as a live CD.

You may have the files for a CD install.

Look on sdb1 for this file isolinux.cfg

Open it in a text editor.

Example:
default puppy
display boot.msg
prompt 1
timeout 50

F1 boot.msg
F2 help.msg
F3 help2.msg

label puppy
kernel vmlinuz
append initrd=initrd.gz pmedia=cd

The pmedia=cd change it to pmedia=usbflash

A USB install is usually done by running Puppy as a live CD install and using the Puppy Universal Installer to install to USB drive.

Some people also use UNetbootin to do USB installs.
