http://bkhome.org/news/201802/quirky-xerus-x8664-version-85-released.html

I made two manual frugal installs of Quirky 8.5 by extracting and copying the contents of xerus64-8.5.iso file. The first install was to VFAT partition on USB flash drive. The second one was to FAT32 partition on hard disk. On both times by keeping a personal savefile from Quirky 8.4. Everything seems to work well.

Thanks for bugfixing and for the improvements of my favorite distro.

I re-uploaded the 8GB image file. It was xz'ed, which Windows USB Flash writer apps can't handle. So recompressed it with gzip.

The downside of that is the download grows from 359MB to 542MB.

@BarryK

Woof is no longer recognizing the Packages-pet-common-official when using ./2createpackages. Now, I have to put under Packages-pet-xerus-official for them to be recognized. I think this may be a result of 2a-fix-pkg-list but not sure. Not world ending but a little inconvenient. Can you enlighten me again?

Using woof-project-20180301 quirky-out amd64 amd64 Ubuntu Xerus and using Woof-code.

Thanks,,

Yeah, I took it out. Look at file DISTRO_PET_REPOS*

I wanted to reduce the number of PET repositories. Quirky Xerus 8.5 only accesses -noarch and -xerus PET repos.

You could put in an older DISTRO_PET_REPOS* file, to bring back the ones you want.

Hello, greetings from Central America.

- My CD Optical Device is ok, I have tested others distros of puppy without problems.
- MD5SUM Ok
- My BIOS is configured correctly, no security boot is on. CD boot sequence in 1st place.

-I´m a little new solving problems, my goal is run Xerus64-8.4 from a CD or USB, using the ISO file, and then use Puppy Installer to install the system in a EXT4 formated USB.

Some information about my PC:

Product Name: OptiPlex 740
BIOS Version: 2.2.5 Dell
AMD Athlon(tm) 64 X2 Dual Core Processor 3800+
Total RAM: 2908 MB

Thanks, in advance.

Did you get that kernel panic when booting off a CD?

PostPosted: Sun 18 Mar 2018, 08:46    Post subject: Using an old Intel motherboard  

Did a frugal install on my old Intel DG31PR motherboard with Intel Core Duo E7200 CPU.

As it operates on 2GB of RAM only the RAM stack indicator dropped down to 1.2GB while creating the q.sfs file - but everything went well!

Graphics runs in 1600x900 with the Mesa DRI Intel G33 driver.

PNMixer 0.5.1 works great with the old Intel NM10 HDA Audio.

The only thing I had to set up once was the alsamixer Front volume from 75% to 100% to make sound work great.

Another job well done Barry!

PostPosted: Sun 18 Mar 2018, 16:07    Post subject: Old ASUS motherboard with Intel Core Duo  

Did another frugal install on my ASUS PC with Intel Core Duo E4500 CPU, also running on 2GB of RAM.

Using a NVIDIA GeForce 9500 GS graphics card with it. Resolution is set to 1280x1024 pixel.

The browser update from 2.49.1 to 2.49.2 from the Seamonkey site looks stable.

Looks very good.

I booted Quirky Xerus64-8.5 from DVD (RAM only, no hard disk), Installed tree and copy fast, made some settings in SeaMonkey and remastered, burning to another brand new DVD-R. It wouldn't boot; the computer couldn't find anything to boot from. It appears that the q.sfs file didn't get included in the remastered DVD. By the way, remastering took at least 10 minutes even though Puppy was running entirely in RAM.

Xerus64-8.5 won't leave the disk tray out. No matter what it's been doing or what I told it to do, the tray will only stay out for about a second before it retracts. Unless I grab it and hold it for a few seconds. Then it will finally give up trying to retract and stay out until I tell it to go back in.

It's actually kind of fun to see if I can swap out disks before the tray retracts. (I have to keep a disk of some kind in the drive or the tray jams and won't eject unless I poke a wire in the hole provided for the purpose. Nearly every CD and DVD drive I've owned has failed the same way. I suspect it's a deliberate design flaw. It's a very subtle one though; I've taken several of them apart, yet haven't figured out what's causing them to jam. Nothing seems to be broken or noticeably worn.)
