I found out about this idea from your earlier post, spent a few hours with no success, have both Pi2 and Pi3. Focused most effort on Pi2 since cooking the fuse to set this up on Pi3 looks like it would cause a 5sec delay either way.
My usb harddrive moving data and creating a first fat layout took most of the time. Was using new beta2 of FD64 and ran into multiple file corruption issues moving stuff around, may not have caught all of them. Sadly had to find my windows hard drive to repair both sdcard and usb hard drive. As a result now down to 2 boot microsd which now can't boot the other Pi. This copy is RPi3 only and my FDArm is RPi2 only.

Time sync from an NTP server with Psync is (partly) broken.

i have developed a brand new solution, called Qsync:

I did a little testing with my Pi2 and got both Raspbian & Quirky booting from a USB flash drive. All I had to do was to put 'bootcode.bin' on an empty, FAT-formated SD card, insert it in the Pi2, plug in the flash drive (with the Quirky that I use to boot my Pi3), plug in the power cable and wait a bit. Then, bingo, first the colored screen then the 4 raspberries and the boot sequence. It then works the same as on my Pi3, all done without fusing any Pi2 SoC bits Smile

I also tried this on a USB hard disk but, just like you, didn't get that to work. Even adding a file named 'timeout' to the SD card (as suggested by the Raspberry Pi guys) to add an extra delay didn't help.

One general tip: Make sure both 'start.elf' and 'bootcode.bin' (on both the USB flash & SD card) are matched, that is, that they've been downloaded at the same time from the 'next' firmware branch.

Barry, you may have already fixed this bug, but one of the keyboard setup scripts writes to /etc/X11/xorg.conf (instead of /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/10-evdev-puppy.conf) and keeps X from starting on the next boot.

I think it was when I used 'Wizard Wizard -> Puppy Setup -> Configure the mouse and keyboard' to attempt to change my keyboard layout.

When X didn't start, I looked in xerrors.log and found an entry complaining about some strange characters on line 106 in /etc/X11/xorg.conf.

That line is an uncommented "XkbLayout" line in the otherwise commented-out "Input Device" section. Removing that line fixed X.

No, I haven't fixed that. I am just about to upload 8.1.1, so will have to leave that for next time.

However, I have fixed setting of keyboard layout in QuickSetup, so you don't have to manually edit that evdev file.

Yeah, there are probably going to be other scripts and PETs that read/write mouse/keyboard settings from/to /etc/X11/xorg.conf.

on my 4th rebuild..

**** DO NOT USE OMXPLAYER ****

3 hard crashes = black screen of death, you have been warned!

I am getting good at fsck my disc Evil or Very Mad

on a nicer note rest is doing well.

also learned how to make and recover from a squashfile clean before boot copy., and copy such to USB Hardrive with a ext4. using that now.


Code:
dwc_otg.lpm_enable=0 console=tty1 root=/dev/sda3 rootfstype=ext4 elevator=deadline rootwait quiet splash ramdisk_size=32768


only file cmdline.txt changed root=

really cool now only one minute to fresh rebuild when I bork something.. Big plus not burning through my flash write lives. It does take longer to boot to desktop.

now need to find out how to turn on journaling and make my other drives mount read only so those do not need fsck-ing after playing with videos and X crashing.

Announcement of maru os
https://blog.maruos.com/

SSH is automatically on so the user can attach another computer without a cable.

Quote:
One of the top user requests for Maru OS is the ability to start Maru Desktop without an HDMI screen around. In v0.3, just tap the switch and your desktop will start in the background if an HDMI display isn’t available. SSH services are enabled by default in the desktop, so you can easily ssh into your portable Debian server!

Hmmm, when I was testing Omxplayer, hot-keys worked in full-screen.

I only tested big buck bunny, that played ok.

Maybe I changed something after that, that broke it. I was testing on the Pi2.
