Thanks for DD64! A manual frugal install boots without problem on an older Lenovo netbook with a Via Nano U2250 processor.

Since the only issue so far is wireless, I thought I'd post this helpful link:
DebianDog wireless LAN HowTo

In my case, the needed modules were present, but there doesn't appear to be any firmware. I copied the /lib/firmware/b43 folder from Fatdog to get mine working. Smile


Thanks Wognath, glad it works well for you.

Copying /lib/firmware/b43 from Fatdog might work ok, but I would recommend the official way by installing it from the Debian repository:
Code:
apt-get install firmware-b43-installer

Or install it by using synaptic.
I plan to include more firmware in next iso release, btw.

New package added to DebianDog64 repository:
openbox-keybinder

Openbox keybind configuration GUI, made by Pablo Cabrera and brought by Chriswaterguy here:
http://crunchbang.org/forums/viewtopic.php?pid=252719
A program to set keyboard shortcuts in Openbox.

Probably not the most intuitive program IMHO but it works well after figuring out how to use.
Install:
Code:

apt-get update
apt-get install openbox-keybinder

Or by using synaptic.

Run it from Menu> Settings

Congratulations!

Installed a frugal live off of iso with this boot code
Code:
title Debian-PorteusDog (sda2)
root (hd0,1)
kernel (hd0,1)/live/vmlinuz1 noauto from=/ changes=/live/ i8042.noloop
initrd (hd0,1)/live/initrd1.xz


auto connected to internet on usb0 (android mobile tethered). DogRadio is fantastic (my new favourite app). Web browser works great. All hardware working. Feels great!

Only two problems so far.
1) Menu and tray, notification seized up! Cn still access menu by clicking on desktop. Happened after using synaptic to install xiphos and billard-gl

2) billard-gl installed but not working, executable not found, neither cli nor menu entry.

Hi Fred, Toni,

It being summer here I haven't been using computer much so just noticed this new DebianDog64 post. Wow, I was delighted to see it since the only omission in the great DebianDog series (hope you manage a MintPup64 one day, but never a hurry). I will indeed be trying this out Fred - plan to download the iso tomorrow and maybe install on my partner's machine since she prefers a 64bit system. Almost Christmas Toni, I hope someone buys you a 64bit machine! ;-)

William

No idea what you mean, can you attach screenshot maybe?

That's a mistake I made, it will be included in fixes list for next iso release.
In /etc/profile the PATH needs changed for root, instead:
Code:
if [ "`id -u`" -eq 0 ]; then
  PATH="/usr/local/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/bin:/sbin:/bin"
else
  PATH="/usr/local/bin:/usr/bin:/bin:/usr/local/games:/usr/games"
fi
export PATH

It needs to be this (to include /usr/games for root):
Code:
PATH="/usr/local/bin:/usr/bin:/bin:/usr/local/games:/usr/games"
[ "`id -u`" -eq 0 ]&& PATH="$PATH:/usr/local/sbin:/usr/sbin:/sbin"
export PATH


Edit: BTW, for me billard-gl needs also installed libgl1-mesa-glx and libgl1-mesa-dri :
Code:
apt-get install libgl1-mesa-glx libgl1-mesa-dri

Hi William, looking forward to your test results.
I'm at the point of updating the iso, probably today or tomorrow, many essential things I forgot, so needs fixing.

One thing I'd like to ask help for, when you have time, is, e.g: picdrop which is missing in DD64, I don't have a clue how to do it yet (compile BACON app).

New DebianDog64-Jessie iso image uploaded:
Iso: DebianDog64-Jessie-openbox-2015-12-15.iso Size: 219MB
Md5sum: DebianDog64-Jessie-openbox-2015-12-15.md5

Browse DebDog64-Jessie at DropBox

First post link and information updated.

Changes and fixes list and information:

- File associations better organized. include some more pcmanfm custom actions.
- Smaller icons for wbar and move more to the left so there's no overlap with the clock.
- rox-pinboard icons, move to the left of screen, so no overlap by the clock.
(made mistake by initially testing only with wide-screen, should be ok also on 4:3 monitor)
- Upgrade of package "openbox-light" to version 0.0.4-dd (synchronized with the changes above)
- Add packages firmware-linux-free and firmware-linux-nonfree
- Add some more firmware for wireless (e.g. b43, ipw2x00, etc..).
- Fixed a mistake I made resulting in games not working as /usr/games is not included in PATH for root, solution:
In /etc/profile the PATH needs changed for root, instead:
Code:
if [ "`id -u`" -eq 0 ]; then
  PATH="/usr/local/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/bin:/sbin:/bin"
else
  PATH="/usr/local/bin:/usr/bin:/bin:/usr/local/games:/usr/games"
fi
export PATH

It should be this (to include /usr/games for root):
Code:
PATH="/usr/local/bin:/usr/bin:/bin:/usr/local/games:/usr/games"
[ "`id -u`" -eq 0 ]&& PATH="$PATH:/usr/local/sbin:/usr/sbin:/sbin"
export PATH

Downloading iso now. Will be first time I've tried Jessie-based DD actually. Just been using Wheezy variant, and MintPup more often recently.

Looking forward to trying it out.

William

Hi Fred

Is there a devx or just install development files independently?

Yes, in Extra-Mudules folder:
https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/36381953/DebDog64-Jessie/Extra-Modules/61-DEVX-DebDog64-Jessie.squashfs?dl=1

Or downoad it using SFS-get from Menu>Accessories

PostPosted: Wed 16 Dec 2015, 16:13    Post subject: How to create bootable DebianDog USB from Puppy?  

Hi Fred & All,

Maybe I missed it? Is there an easy way to create a USB-Key that will boot DebianDog64 --or any other DebianDog-- when one is running Puppy Linux?

Step 1. Boot into Puppy Linux.
Step 2. Download DebianDog ISO.
Step 3. Plug in USB-Key.

Then what?

Hi mikeslr,

It depends if the usb-key you use is already bootable, e.g bootloader syslinux or grub4dos installed.
If it is bootable, see here for boot options;
http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=771571#771571
(for DebianDog64: 'live-boot-2' does not apply)
Then it's a matter of copying the 'live' folder from the (mounted) iso to the usb-key and add entry to menu.lst (in case grub4dos), example porteus-boot menu.lst entry for usb-key sdb1:

Code:
title Debian-PorteusDog (sdb1)
root (hd0,0)
kernel /live/vmlinuz1 noauto from=/
initrd /live/initrd1.xz


In case it is not bootable yet, tell me if you need more info about that.
(have to arrange more for that to make things work for DebianDog64)
For DebianDog 32 bit there's a portable DebianDog-installer which should work running on Puppy:

Hi mike,
I have used syslinux a year ago to create bootable usb stick.
The how to I followed is here, http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=54566

I now use that drive to boot many puppies.

I just have to mount a ISO, copy it's contents in a folder, Copy data from isolinux.cfg on that iso, and paste it in syslinux.cfg on pen drive with the folder name appended to it.

My pendrive has Fatdog64, Tahrpup, Tahr64, Debiandog32, Debiandog64, Slacko64, in it.
No other installer ever used.

If your usb is formatted with ext filesystem, you can use extlinux in same way.

Both extlinux and syslinux are available in all puppy linuxes (I think).

Hope this helps.

Hello Fred,

DD Jessie64 booted fine on my HP Elitebook. Looks great.

Ethernet connectivity working out of the box, but wireless, on my machine isn't.

I checked and the system already contains the firmware-iwlwifi my machine needs as documented in example 2 of my DebianDog wireless howto link:

http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=98112

However, frisbee couldn't find my wifi network. I believe it needs to access rfkill command to software enable the wifi adapter but, after a quick look, I believe the rfkill command is missing on the system, so I will need to install that later and hopefully all will be well after that. I documented the rfkill situation that is necessary for some machines (such as my HP Elitebook) in the thread here:

http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=855377#855377

Note, from the discussion there, that frisbee uses the rfkill command to soft enable the wifi adapter via frisbee function script /usr/lib/frisbee/func.

If I'm correct that rfkill command is missing from the system, I'd thus advise you to install it.

I'll confirm later if that addition fixes my wifi once I swap the machine over to ethernet connection point and find rfkill to install.

William

Thanks Fred & drunkjedi,

for the clear instructions.

Been using Puppies for years. Got creating bootable Puppy USB-keys from Puppies down to a science. After the three steps I mentioned, Step 4 (depending on circumstances) gparted to format Key and flag as bootable; Step 5 Unpack ISO to Key; Step 6 install Grub4Dos to Key -- which, I found out doesn't work with DebianDogs.

Fred's recipe seems like an easy to remember variation.

Interestingly, drunkjedi suggestion that syslinux might be available in all Pups aroused my curiosity. As syslinux doesn't show up on the Menu, I started PPM to see if a version was easily installable. PPM reported that a version was already installed. Terminal "syslinux --h" confirmed that. I suspect its part of the Puppy (Universal) Installer. If so, it would in fact be available in all Pups.

By the way, IIRC, while running Windows LinuxLiveUSB Creator had no difficulty creating a bootable USB-Key from the MintPup (Trusty) ISO.

Thanks again,

mikesLr
