Have you tried using Gparted?

If the drive is found by Pmount, Gparted should see it.
In Gparted.
Select the floppy drive as the device to look at.
Format.
It has been a very long time, but I seem to remember you need to format a floppy as fat 16.

This may work.
(This assumes the floppy drive is dev/fd0)

Fat16 filesystem --> mkfs -t msdos /dev/fd0

Ext2 filesystem --> mkfs -t ext2 /dev/fd0

Quote:
root# mkfs

Usage:
mkfs [options] [-t <type>] [fs-options] <device> [<size>]

Make a Linux filesystem.

Options:
-t, --type=<type> filesystem type; when unspecified, ext2 is used
fs-options parameters for the real filesystem builder
<device> path to the device to be used
<size> number of blocks to be used on the device
-V, --verbose explain what is being done;
specifying -V more than once will cause a dry-run
-V, --version display version information and exit;
-V as --version must be the only option
-h, --help display this help text and exit

For more details see mkfs.

PostPosted: Wed 21 Feb 2018, 09:45    Post subject: fd0 formatting  

Thanks musher0 & Bigpup... Hmmm maybe I should have worded differently..

Why is there no menu entry to click for formatting a floppy disk (3-1/2" - fd0)?

MS Window users coming to Artful are not likely to use terminal-commands to do such a simple function.

The menu function for formatting a floppy disk has been in puppy since forever... Puppy is supposed to make things easy for those coming to Linux especially with older computers.

Seasoned-Puppy people sometimes tend to forget what it was like when we first got into Linux from MS? What a mess huh? no one could ever learn this stuff?

Let's try to keep it simple for the new linux members... give them something to click on in the menu.

PostPosted: Wed 21 Feb 2018, 11:48    Post subject: a complete GRUB boot manager on floppy disk for Puppy  

Once upon a time, Bruce B gave answer providing a complete GRUB boot manager on floppy disk for Puppy 2005 here
The newest puppy booted by floppy disk, that is a challenge, for newbies.
From Windows to Artfulpup how many ? see below
I would bet Linux users are part of the swarm of bees installing , all year long, last Linux versions released. Windows users are searching for an OS to replace Windows, not to disable it as soon as installed. IMO of course. Perhaps i am wrong.
Windows users can trust skamilinux team to help them for hungarian version (Murga forum, Facebook, and S-kami hungarian forum) What a lucky man the hungarian user is !
There is a light shudder in Africa.. We must blow on the flame.

Hi hamoudoudou,

Bruce B's pet was nice find. I took a look at its contents. I'm guessing. But perhaps all that is needed to make it work with current Puppies is to edit the "stanzas" Bruce provided in MENU.LST. For example, Bruce provided


title Puppy (type 1) - hda1
rootnoverify (hd0,0)
kernel (hd0,0)/vmlinuz root=/dev/ram PFILE=pup001-none-262144 PHOME=hda1
initrd (hd0,0)/image.gz

While a current Puppy could use:

title Xenialpup (sda1)
rootnoverify (hd0,0)
kernel (hd0,0)/vmlinuz
initrd /(hd0,0)/vmlinuz/initrd.gz

Other 'kernel arguments' might be possible. But, having neither a floppy-drive port nor a floppy-drive, I have no way of testing any of the above.

I have pulled this format floppy from out of artful puppy.
If you alter the .desktop file entry from No display=true to false, then it will show in the menus under System after a fixmenus
I've attached a .pet.

Now, this is interesting! Very Happy
Congratulations.

It is actually pretty functional.

Trying it on my Pentium M laptop, seems to work just as well as Artful in my tests so far. I like how the cursor moves faster. Smile

Boots and runs cleanly, sound, SNS connection, overall video performance seems fine. Slimjet Version 17.0.3.0 running as spot from SFS with the profile on an EXT2 data partition as usual. Posting from it. The kernel reports spectre 1 and 2 mitigation, but meltdown vuln. Is a 32 bit kernel vulnerable to meltdown? Way beyond my pay grade. Just to exercise it a bit I set up the same mods I use in ArtfulPup to integrate pcmanfm, extended rightclicks, and integrate it with the system trashcan. It's all working and I haven't killed bionic yet. Two quirks noted. The extra pts,sys,floppy and proc icons are showing in the sidepanel on pcmanfm (on my plate, not the beavers) and I have to remember how I dealt with that and glxgears reports the following:
Code:
# vblank_mode=0 glxgears
Error: couldn't get an RGB, Double-buffered visual controller
So far I see nothing in dmesg or the Pup-Sysinfo reports that illuminate that. Both say the intel i915 is being used and there are absolutely no warnings or errors at all in dmesg.

Pretty smooth for an alpha Smile

Edit: I do see the following in hardinfo wrt the video quirk.
Code:
-Display-
Resolution      : 1366x768 pixels

Vendor      : Unknown

And running hardinfo from terminal gives the following:

I installed kpat,vlc-3.01,smplayer/smtube, and a few others.

Kodi-17.6 installed but it's missing some dependencies.

This alpha is pretty high on the scale of awesome Smile

Thanks.

This is probably an Ubuntu issue with libva-* libraries. They have been updated to libva-*2_2* but in some dependencies they appear as libva-{,2}*
Hopefully will be fixed before 18.04 release.

BTW kodi starts after libva-x11-2_2 installation though in my VM fails to get screen settings from xrandr and crashes.

BTW2 compton menu icon appears to be missing

Manual frugal install to 32 GB Flash Drive. For an alpha release, it's working great.

I normally don't use fdrv's, as I manually load the required firmware for my Intel 7260 & 7265D wifi cards. As an alpha, I used the fdrv to test. The fdrv contains iwlwifi-7265D-10.ucode and iwlwifi-7260-10.ucode firmware versions. For the 7265D card, the start up checking commences looking for iwlwifi-7265D-26.ucode and fails to load after checking for version 17. I manually loaded iwlwifi-7265D-22.ucode, wifi connection is now successful.

I haven't tested with the 7260 wifi card yet, but believe it may end similarly.
