I have re-uploaded the FF PET, think it should fix the problem:

I had read on Barry's blog that he had made another tweak to the Foxfire pet.

Finally got around to testing it on my machine this morning. After downloading the new pet from the link posted on his blog, I now have Foxfire(Namoroka 3.6.13) and SM browser and mail client all working together.

Had to move back to Wary 5.0 from Lupu 5.2.0 where I've been quite happily using Firefox and Thunderbird for a couple of weeks now, but figured I had better test the tweak since I was one of the ones 'complaining' about it.. Wink

Thanks again for all your work on this issue and Puppy in general.

ALSA & numerous retrovol pets did not resolve. Problem occurs after reboot every time I listen to WABC News Talk Radio via internet. Never happens in 431. Only solution is to save a copy of the good save file in a folder and use it to revert to good sound. Wary_500.SFS file always OK. Somehow it is the Kernel which sends the RAM file to save at shutdown that is defective.

Can I delete the vmlinuz & copy the good 431 vmlinuz into the WARY folder?

How to boot Wary using grub4dos?

I've been booting Puppy 2.16 and 4.12 by chaining from the Windows XP bootloader to grub4dos to a USB flash drive as described in:

http://www.murga.org/~puppy/viewtopic.php?t=1058

However, this method does not work for wary 5.0. Using the following entry in menu.lst, wary does not seem able to find wary_500.sfs in the root of the FAT16 USB flash drive.

title wary puppy 5 persistent (not working)
rootnoverify=(hd0,1)
kernel /nixboot/wary50/vmlinuz root=/dev/ram0 pmedia=usbflash
initrd /nixboot/wary50/initrd.gz

Try this:

Code:
title wary puppy 5 persistent
rootnoverify=(hd0,1)
kernel /nixboot/wary50/vmlinuz pmedia=usbflash psubdir=nixboot/wary50
initrd /nixboot/wary50/initrd.gz

Tried as suggested. Got

"Searching for Puppy files in computer disk drives ....
(next in red:) pausingwary.sfs not found. Dropping out to initial-ramdisk console."

I think that is the same error message as with the original boot codes.

PostPosted: Sun 06 Feb 2011, 17:49    Post subject: Booting wary using grub4dos  

I put copies of wary_500.sfs in all of: 1) the root of the USB flash, 2) the root of the hard drive system partition (Windows XP on partition 2), and 3) in /nixboot/wary50 on the hard drive, and then tried booting with the following grub4dos menu.lst entry:

title wary puppy 5 persistent
rootnoverify=(hd0,1)
kernel /nixboot/wary50/vmlinuz
initrd /nixboot/wary50/initrd.gz

This gave the message "searching deeper, sub-sub-folders in partitions", and finally booted successfully. Apparently wary could not find the .sfs in either the flash drive or the root of the hard drive, and dug down to find the third copy in a sub-sub-directory.

I'm now booting successfully with /nixboot/wary50/wary_500.sfs on the hard drive using:

title wary puppy 5 persistent
rootnoverify=(hd0,1)
kernel /nixboot/wary50/vmlinuz psubdir=nixboot/wary50
initrd /nixboot/wary50/initrd.gz

Unlike other puppies, I can't read wary_500.sfs from the root of the flash drive, with or without pmedia=usbflash. Maybe a bug?

Addendum: Although wary boots now, persistence doesn't work. When I create the snapshot file, choosing the directory as the root of the flash drive (changing from the suggested default of /nixboot/wary50, a directory that exists only on the hard drive), it creates the file but does not read it when rebooting. Wary is finding neither the .sfs nor the .2fs file when they are in the root of the flash drive.

In case it is not clear, I am booting from an NTFS hard disk but saving the persistence file to a FAT USB flash drive. My BIOS does not support booting from USB.
