@perdido I found something weird. The boot flag read by fdisk suddenly disappears. I think we need a better boot flag detection or remove boot flag detection.

Hi, mistfire. There are forum members seeking to have VLC working with your Puppy. Where can they find a suitable package?

vlc was available on slitaz repo but only cli works. You need to install vlc-gtk frontend.

I ran the script both from the installer and from /usr/bin/ with the same result.

After closing GParted I get the "Failed to make bootable" window, then I click "Ok" and window closes.

@diditt AppImages supposed to be worked on TazPuppy. Just chmod +x the appimage file. Make sure that the appimage file was compatible on kernel arch. Based on your appimage error message, I think your appimage file was not 32-bit. Just use 64-bit kernel file and 64-bit zdrv sfs file

In fatdog64 I am able to run KRITA paint program appimage
with a special command.
(Otherwise wrong version of QT is loaded)

I can launch KRITA paint program this way
Code:
LD_LIBRARY_PATH= ./krita-4.1.7-x86_64.appimage

Thanks @perdido. I found now the root cause of the problem.

The new script went farther until some different errors.

The output from terminal is at bottom of post
It is easier to post pics than try to explain with words Smile

Launched script from terminal. Chose usb device to intstall to.



Opens GParted



Partitions are present with boot flag



Close GParted, Choose Frugal Install



Choose where puppy files are to install from



After click "OK" files install



After files install, choose how installation will run.
I choose "YES"



After a few minutes I get "failed to edit initrd.xz" window



After that I click "OK" and script exits.
The output from the terminal follows

Code:

root@TazPuppy:~# /usr/bin/f2fs-usb-installer
find: warning: you have specified the -maxdepth option after a non-option argument -type,
but options are not positional (-maxdepth affects tests specified before it as well as those

The files that are on the usb stick after the install

partition ext2 32MB
---------------------------

└── vmlinuz

2 directories, 1 file

partition f2fs REST OF USB STICK

# tree

└── tazpup_5.0

1 directory, 0 files

###################################
It seems there are files missing after the install completed.

The next install attempt will represent the same type of install except I will choose "NO" in f2fs installer - choice window .

There was a different error when I choose "NO" at the following window.

The next f2fs-usb-installer attempt - all choices remained exactly the same as previous post until the following window where I choose "NO"
(I chose "Yes" in previous post)



After that choice finishes, the f2fs Installer window indicates "Everything looks good", I click "OK" and installer closes.



Next I unmount and shutdown computer for a reboot with the newly made usb

I get the following error when trying to boot this usb stick
Code:
boot:
Could not find kernel image: /vesamenu.c32


The terminal output from this install attempt
Code:

root@TazPuppy:~# /usr/bin/f2fs-usb-installer
find: warning: you have specified the -maxdepth option after a non-option argument -type,
but options are not positional (-maxdepth affects tests specified before it as well as those
