1.0.4 gives Black Screen of Death after loading usr_cram.fs
Thought the puppy would like me..
So now i've got a bootable cd with 1.04-mozilla on it.
I see the puppy so give it an enter. Then after the copying usr_cram.fs some lines really fast scoll by (I can't pause them to read), and then the screen goes black and stays black.
I've waited for a couple of minutes, no activity...
Any ideas, thoughts? Knoppix works but I want that puppy

likely a cdrom issue
most people here advise to erase the cdrom well if it is a cd-rw before burning puppy into it, and to use slower speeds in burning, say 4X. and, yes, try the checksum to verify that the iso was downloaded well. _________________ Puppy user since Oct 2004. Want FreeOffice? Get the sfs (English only).
