Very nice. MintPup boots easily from ISObooter.

I would like to get Puppy and Mintpup (or other 'Dog' OS) available on a same pendrive. I will try ISObooter
My first idea was grub4dos.. feed back about success soon.
About the policy of Linux OS, the development can be finished and the OS well alive, downloaded by thousands of people . Who will just need a maintenance team to help them.. 'Service après vente' in French. Not to change it, but to explain how to use it.

I've done it using Grub4dos on an old 20 GB usb hard drive.

Just get one installed and working (either Puppy or a Dog OS, it doesn't matter), then you can just copy the files over into their own subdirectories and write the entries in the menu.1st file manually.

Best to always put the dog distributions in uniquely named subdirectories (i.e. use something like /DD32Main/live or /xenial64test/casper instead of just /live or /casper) to avoid it finding the wrong set of changes.

I think what we need are some YouTube videos for things like this, but for Pelo this might need French subtitles (especially if I made such videos with my Scottish accent)?

Do you tend towards the Fyfe Robertson style, or perhaps a bit of Rab C Nesbitt?.

I'm not from Glasgow side of the country so don't have that kind of accent though not like Mr Robertson either. From near Perh/Kinross, so not too tricky for most to decode... Speed of speaking depends how much Irn Bru I've been drinking though.

eh don't worry about the accent. When i watch a video English spoken, i don't understand nothing. But image is enough to guess.
Written or spoken, that makes an huge difference.
Our teachers teach with their French accent..
Understand that a linux script is a n+3 language for us.
N1 Script N1 script in chinese
N2 English N2 Usual chinese
N3 French N3 English
... N4 what do they mean....
Video makes things easier, no doubt.

Before someone gets wrong impression:

This is community thread/project and anyone can give feedback, fixes, opinion etc. But this doesn't mean I will try to give answers or fixes to all users questions and problems. I will not update the iso version and I will maintain the existing iso the way it works best for me. Hopefully (but not necessarily) for some others too. For information and fixes read the bugs and fixes link in the first post. The last iso is still useful and the little fixing it needs is already done.

Anyone who wants to maintain, develop or continue in different direction any of the Dog based projects started by me is always very welcome. I will be happy to take part only as contributor and maybe some project scripts/packages/fixes maintainer.

Toni

I've been working earlier on modifying isobooter for better 'Dog' support, didn't finish it back then, but just did now.
Try if you want and tell me if it works for you.

With ISObooter no need to format your pendrive, so i kept my data alive.
Dual boot Puppy Stretch and Mintpup Click the blue and jump
I just need to add changes to menu.lst.. that should be done soon, once i find the synthaxe (french word).

Pelo, Try isobooter-mod
And choose no for "to boot from it's splash screen"
Then you can edit menu.lst to add e.g. changes=/.... to the kernel line

EDIT:
Also for Mintpup boot method info (specially see changes/persistent options) look here:

PostPosted: Tue 04 Jul 2017, 13:01    Post subject: Help from passengers is one reason for forum
Subject description: From friendly passengers.. as weak as you .
 

Fredx181, thanks for information. I will use your information.
About maintenance, when development is finished, passengers should help together, when successful OS. Forum is a place to discuss and help each other.
Some foreign Puppy Linux forum have an expert always here for help and translation, as Spanish , hungarian and russian. But it's a chance, not a rule. They are more distributors than builders. Ambassadors , yes ambassadors is the word.
Euh, our french expert will not help with Mintpup... Unless he tries it ?

My purpose was to test ISObooter. I am satisfied. Why Mintpup ? To check if Mint Packages are valuable, of some interest.

XenialDog remains however my choice, because some apps are only available in Xenial, not in Debian packages.
