Known issue with 64-bit Ext4 filesystem
Ext4 partitions created by recent Linux make trouble with Grub4Dos.
You can avoid this issue converting the filesystem to 32-bit ext4.

Since grub4dos is default in most puppies, very few users will ever read this warning.
Now that more puppies are 64 bit, 64-ext4 fs may be more common.
Would be nice if g4d config detects this setup, warn the user and either suggest and do the change or bailout and suggest grub2 or a manual fix.

Please pardon me. I had moved Puppy directories from /mnt/home/ to mnt/home/Puppys/

grub4dosconfig does not find the Puppys in mnt/home/Puppys/

How can I edit so that it will work?

Thank you.

Sheldon

Hi shinobar,

"I had moved Puppy directories from /mnt/home/ to mnt/home/Puppys/"

grub4dos only searches 2 levels deep: (1) the top of the drives/partitions, and (2) within the folders at the top of the drives/partitions.

Your puppies are now three levels deep; /mnt/home = /mnt/dev_save = /initrd/mnt/dev_save being the top of the drive/partition; ... /Puppys being the folder at the second level and the respective puppy folders --e.g. /mnt/home/Puppys/tahrpup-- being at the 3rd level.

I don't know of any boot command which would enable grub4dos to search deeper; and quick 'google' didn't reveal any. It may require compiling grub4dos to provide that capability. But I could be wrong.

Thanks a lot. I was just hoping that shinobar or someone could think of a change in the script 'grub4dosconfig' to perhaps specify look in a desired directory and its sub-directories.
