PostPosted: Wed 10 Feb 2016, 03:14    Post subject: Puppy Linux Boot Parameters & General Linux Boot Parms  

First
In reviewing this page which supports Puppy Linux boot parameters, I can find no mentions of the syntax requirements or defaults for the Puppy Boot Parameters themselves (those are the options BEFORE the equal sign).

Questions
    Are boot options case sensitive? OR is case NOT a factor and spelling is the only factor?
    What are the default values?

Next
In reviewing this page which supports Puppy Linux boot parameters, I can find no mentions of the case requirements for the General Boot Parameters shown. The parms begin their topic area in UPPER case while the supporting paragraphs show lower case. Defaults, on this page, are usually shown.

Questions
    Are these boot options case sensitive? OR is case NOT a factor?

Last
There is a 2nd, separate, page showing additional Puppy Linux Parameters. In reviewing this page which supports additional Puppy Linux boot parameters, I can find no mentions of its relationship to the Puppy Boot Parameters themselves (those are the options BEFORE the equal sign).

Questions
    Are these boot options related and to be used in conjunction with the first mentioned set, above? Why are they separate?

Thanks in advance for any clarity on options used in booting Puppy Linux.

Please move post if in wrong place:

Slacko-6.5.0:
Want to boot from USB-which works,
and save to sda2-which is either forbidden or beyond my ability. Is there a boot parameter I could set? Like:

kernel /vmlinuz pmedia=usbflash pfix=fsck, PupSfs=/sda2/slackosave_crypta.2fs

I've tried editing the SAVEFILE contents to be /../sda2
but no good there either. I can't get it to save. I'll try (0,1) and see if that helps later. I know it's nooking for a partition number on the same drive, I'm hoping it can be tricked into another drive. I won't do it now, I've got too much stuff running and it's a PITA to start again from scratch if it doesn't work, although I suppos I could just save a slackosave.2fs in sdb3, to keep what I have, and reconfigure SAVEFILE for testing? The old brain is a bit slow these days.

With Tahr-6.0.5 I could boot from a cd and save on sda2.


BTW. I've discovered the when using a USB 2.0 memory stick in a 3.0 port, I need to lock the port to 2.0 or a puppy USB stick won't find the sfs file. It defaults back to 3.0 and can't read the device. It probably just need more time, but a BIOS change is not difficult.

There is no reason why a Slacko could not use sda2 if tahrpup use it, in my knowledge.

There hasn't really been a problem until Windows10 (which, for your convenience, removes any files not placed there by Windows10).

Cutting into the boot sequence is a little harder for Win7 and on (I run Lin'N'Win on my XP and Win98 machines). I bypassed mucking with the Win7 boot sequence by simply booting from an external SD card (then pointing to the files stored on the Windows hard drive). Win10 broke it so I moved them onto an external USB drive...

It also helps to look at the code. Here is the part of the source which contains all the paramaters; lines 836-883 of /initrd/init tahrpup:
Code:

#pmedia= usbflash|usbhd|usbcd|ataflash|atahd|atacd|atazip|scsihd|scsicd|cd
[ $pmedia ] && PMEDIA=$pmedia #boot parameter, broad category of boot media. ex: cd.
[ $psubdir ] && PSUBDIR=$psubdir #boot parameter, directory for puppy files. ex: puppy220
[ $psavemark ] && PSAVEMARK=$psavemark #100913 partition number that has/will-have save-file.

[ $PSUBDIR ] && [ "${PSUBDIR:0:1}" != "/" ] && PSUBDIR="/${PSUBDIR}" #add leading /.

[ $pdev1 ] && PDRV=$pdev1 #boot parameter, partition have booted off. ex: hda3
#100915 requested by technosaurus (formats get changed further down)...
[ $pdrv ] && PDRV=$pdrv #format partition:<path><filename> ex: sda2:/slacko/puppy_slacko_6.3.0.sfs
[ $pupsfs ] && PDRV=$pupsfs
[ $zdrv ] && ZDRV=$zdrv #ex: sda2:/slacko/zdrv_slacko_6.3.0.sfs
[ $fdrv ] && FDRV=$fdrv
[ $adrv ] && ADRV=$adrv
[ $ydrv ] && YDRV=$ydrv
#<partition>:<filename>, for savefile/savefolder. <partition> can be a name or Label or UUID
[ $psave ] && PSAVE=$psave #ex: sdb4:/puppy/tahr/tahrsave or smark or 49baa82d-8c69:tahrsave
#list of kernel modules to load, ex: pimod=hid-logitech-dj.ko,kernel/drivers/hid/hid-multitouch.ko
[ $pimod ] && PIMOD=$pimod
#specify partition for Underdog Linux (refer also underdog.lnx).
[ $underdog ] && UNDERDOG=$underdog
#[ $pdebug ] && PDEBUG=$pdebug
PDEBUG=1
TOTAL_SIZEK_SFS_RAM=0

# show menu with pupsaves
[ $psavemenu ] && PSAVEMENU=$psavemenu

   [0-9]*)  PIGNORELAST=$ONEFIX;; #blacklist last $ONEFIX folders (multisession).

Lot of information in this topic : so many forgotten parameters are forgotten because they have not been used for years, perhaps useless for Puppy
New comers as Dogs live in Puppy Forum but ignore how Puppy Boots..

Just because you don't use them doesn't mean everyone doesn't use them. Your post really adds nothing to this topic.

PostPosted: Fri 22 Jun 2018, 04:15    Post subject: easily replace awful cheat-codes  

Dogs entered the Puppy forum without wish to now how puppy works. Just a free place to create Live CDS. But then they began to use Puppy process.. to discover Puppy
Boot options in Puppy can easily replace awful cheat-codes, and do better, far better. They began to study how-to long time ago, successfully.

s243a my purpose was not to add something, just to get the topic at the top, Information about boot options for Puppy should be sticky. For Puppy Linux users. Newbies from Windows, They are not newbies from Linux.
Only Experts.
