Subject description: System halt at startup following a Frugal install
 

Am getting a halt-message after successfully (I thought) frugally-installing Puppy ttuuxxx 2.14X-top8 onto /dev/hda6 a.k.a. hd0,5.

/dev/hda6 contains these key files as part of the Frugal install and its saved session:
- vmlinuz
- initrd.gz
- pup_214X.sfs
- zdrv_214X.sfs
- pup_save.2fs

Boot start-up messages:
Code:

...
(Note: initial-ramdisk is retained and in /inird after bootup)
Loading kernel modules...
...
Mounting /dev/hda6 on (/initrd)/mnt/dev_ro1...
...
Creating unionfs on (/inird)/pup_new (to become '/')...

Right after this above line, BANG! the system halts at
Code:
Busybox v1.6.1 (2007-07-25 02:56:22 PUP)
       multi-call binary

Usage: init

Init is the parent of all processes


Yep, I sure DO know what init is, but DON'T know why Puppy ttuuxxx bootup halts here Question Question

Here is the appropriate part of my GRUB menu.lst file in the /boot/grub directory
Code:
title Puppy Linux 214X (frugal install)
rootnoverify (hd0,5)
kernel /vmlinuz pmedia=idehd
initrd /initrd.gz


Any idea what's going on here and what to do about finding and running init and the appropriate child processes to successfully boot Puppy ttuuxxx 2.14X from grub ??

Thanks for pointers or enlightening links,

Believe that you need to add "root=/dev/ram0" (minus the quotes) to the kernel line of the menu.lst as discussed here

HTH.

Wonder why this menu.lst entry wasn't listed in the sample /tmp/<file> following the completion of the 2.14X Frugal install??
Anyhow, this kernel-line addendum worked.
