My blue desktop theme. Both xenial and tahr pups have this really cool
feature of running scripts in the terminal with a single click. At the upper
right is my temps icon which is right clicked and mouse button held down
while selecting Run in Terminal. Then releasing the button causes hard drive
and cores temperatures to be displayed.

In the center is a icon for system information. Near lower left is my
freecell game icon suggesting both the hearts suit and my love of the
game:)

PostPosted: Mon 02 Oct 2017, 16:42    Post subject: RAM not recognized  

Greetings,
I'm fairly positive this is not a Xenialpup64 problem...but wanted input from this group just in case...
My old, trusty Toshiba Satellite bid farewell yesterday and I'm now up and running on a slightly newer HP Pavilion G6.

First problem is that this machine will not boot XP64 from a CD. The system does not have UEFI boot capabilities so maybe this is the issue. Booting frugal from a flash drive is working fine...curious if anyone has thoughts on how to get the system to boot from a CD in my case.

2nd issue is more problematic. Although my BIOS reports a full boat of RAM (8Gb) XP64 is only seeing 4Gb. (Htop says 3.42, Conky reports 3.35). It's almost as if I'm on a 32 bit processor without PAE but this is a 64 bit machine...albeit an early version without UEFI support. I'd really like to get the other 4Gb of RAM recognized...any thoughts?

As always, a big thanks ahead of time...

I'm running Xenialpup64 7.0.8.5
CD was burned as iso at a write speed of 4.0. CD worked fine on prior computer. Absolutely nothing happens when trying to boot from the CD: System will post and then I get a blinking cursor in the corner and have to hard power off. Mint CD and others I have will boot fine. Maybe this CD has developed an issue coincidentally.

RAM issue was apparently a bad module. Even though BIOS saw it, none of my installed Linux OSes (Salix, Devuan, Mint 17.3) could recognize it. I put in a different (smaller) stick and it is being recognized).

FWIW:
I install Linux Mint (without systemd) on recent Windows refugee computers to try and make the world a better place....I've found that I'm not a fan of HP computers when it comes to getting Linux working on them...not only do they generally have AMD and Radeon issues, I often have other weird things to deal with...this one will not keep Puppy sound settings between sessions (savefile). This HP is only a stop gap until I can get a decent machine that likes me.

I don't think the UEFI is the problem: see my hard drive files at the bottom of this post.
My computer is an ordinary Dell E6410, no UEFI.
Would you try making a hard drive directory, and copy those files into it? That is, open the iso (I have xenialpup64-7.0.8.5-uefi.iso ) eg by clicking in roxfiler, and copy the essental files. Then do grub4dosconfig.

Sorry, I hope someone else can help with the CD.

Code:

Exactly what version of Xenialpup64?
Was the Xenialpup64 iso burned as a iso image?
When you look on the CD it has a bunch of files, not the iso.
Burned at a speed no higher than 8?
Sure the CD burner is working OK?
Sure the CD drive is working OK?

When it tries to boot, you see what?
Details????
