My iso PtitPuppy offers me the multiboot choice. The motorist is satisfied, when the new car works without having to open the hood, without adjusting anything. It would be the paradise, but it is utopian. Nothing is going to take place as betrothed, as on the notice...
I will have to call the technicians, to help out to me, and none speaks french, even in Puppy Facebook forum.
Vlad34 is searching for Multi-pup CD burning method here
Is there a package for that, a package that we could link sur le forum francophone.

just tested the current version r22 on TahrPUP32 to create a USB stick from the April64-72 ISO. All went well ending with a bootable USB; tested.

This thread from @ETP might be of some use for MultiPUP. I can foresee a possibility of it creating a USB from an ISO created by MultiPUP without MultiPUP needing to go thru its current steps. (Forgive my naive suggestion)

Thanks for MultiPUP r22.
Edited to correct path to ETP's thread

That's two miracles. Just, detail everything exactly as you foresaw it.

Instead of any attempt at a contribution, we get the usual attempt to derail or sidetrack a thread from you.

PostPosted: Sun 25 Oct 2015, 23:07    Post subject: USB will not boot. Hangs immediately at start showing "GRUB"  

Recent issues with booting USB:
Build of USB goes without reported errors from the GUI. But, when trying to boot, I have 2 different USBs, a 2GB (build is 1.6GB to USB) and a 10GB (build is 6.4GB to USB) which boot to "GRUB", text at the top left on the screen at boot time...never reaching the expected menu. Each unit stops requiring a cold boot to boot an alternate media.

The 2GB is a stick with 3 distros built using the recent Slacko64-6074. The other unit was built using a 32bit TahrPUP-602.

2 Questions
  • Ideas of what is wrong that the boot process never gets to its Menu?
  • Should I change something on the USB stick to correct the problem?
Thanks in advance for recommendations

Update - a circumvention
This may not be a MultiPUP resolution, but it does circumvent the problem: Redo the bootmanager (GRUB4DOS).
  • On the USB media, Copy "menu.lst" from /boot/grub/menu.lst to its root (/menu.lst)
  • On any PUP, run Menu>System>GRUB4DOS config to configure the bootmanager for that USB media. See below for My example:
Hope this helps.

Very Happy Hello,
Interesting.. Idea
I was never big on grub4dos, because it has the word DOS in it. Rolling Eyes
I want to look at using ISO booter.
I haven't had time to contribute much lately, but I am still watching my baby evolve.
I have tested the new USB enabled versions with limited success.
I have always wanted to see this capability as a part of MultiPup.
When we get this to 100% it'll be a real boost to Puppy.
I created it for CD / DVD because that was the prevalent media at the time.
But that is rapidly changing.
In fact the first response after my first post on this thread was our dear Noobie asking for this functionality!!!
The future beckons......

I'm surprised he didnt ask for it to create the files frugally on NTFS Smile
I miss him (and so many others who have ceased posting the last couple of years...)

I am sure this issue is already known:
When opening GParted (using Slacko6081) I am getting the following announcement regarding the vfat MultiPUP USB stick

I selected "No".

Further, GParted shows the following about the USB partition.

BUT, ROX has no problem opening it and I can navigate interacting with the partition's contents.

Should we be worried?

Updated to revision 22 to prevent installation on vfat and fat32 file systems as they don't support symlinks. It will work on ntfs but use with care.

Very Happy Hello,
I originally put an error check in the script to prevent installation to vfat, ntfs, and inside a save file. It needs a return of ext filesystem to continue. Was it removed?

To almost all,

I asked you [Jasper] to help the community where I wrote: if you have seen the problem, yourself, and know the causes, then express it to the community as it would have general applicability.

Jasper responds:
Yes, as I had already stated, I saw the problem myself and I knew the cause (again as I had already stated) and the solution (which I had already stated and explained above - not once, but twice).

More essentially:
The "problem" was raised by gcmartin, who had used “vfat”, but smokey01 had specifically advised us why MultiPup cannot work with “vfat”. Finally, this undisputed fact was reiterated and reinforced by puppyluvr, the original MultiPup author, in his post above. Surely that is clear.

My regards

Flash - publically (though not privately), you have been specifically requested by gcmartin to observe what I write (not to delete what I write).

You still dont get it. @Puppyluvr shares in the very first post
Quote:
After you have unpacked MultiPup, click on it
to open the MultiPup GUI...
If you try to run MultiPup from a non ext2/ext3 filesystem, (ie ntfs/fat)
a warning message will alert you and MultiPup will stop..
Thus, we are talking, AGAIN, about the script's operation. Your trash talking distracts from any solution you "think" you are trying to provide us. Look at your behavior and try understanding. And if you want to genuinely be a help, then be a helper with the community in mind when you offer solutions.

Please try refraining from your obvious behavior and certainly following any post I write.

And, so that you are aware, no one is doing anything behind your back.
Observe him as he continues this.

On another note:
Let move on in this thread. Respectfully, I ask, that we step back and allow the maintainers to assess the issue. There, very well, may not be a problem. But, Puppyluvr has already opened the discussion in a prior post.

Very Happy Hello,
This is the code I used, because of symlinking.
It applies to the working directory.

#Check if you are in a Linux filesystem
stat -f -c%T $SCRIPT_DIR> /root/stat
if grep -i !="ext2/ext3" /root/stat
then Xdialog --title "Multipup CD/DVD" --msgbox "You are not in a Linux filesystem." 0 0
exit
else :
fi
