Have just burned a second copy of lupu k3.0.7 to test the suggestion my first disk was scratched.

I burned the original md5summed iso with Burniso2cd using a different burner than last time (as burner defects were also suggested), and then verified the burn.

I then booted my Intel D865GLC desktop system with
Code:
pfix=ram
, and the boot failed with the same error message as before.

I then took the disk over to the Toshiba laptop that has so far booted without apparent problems with the first disk burned. This time the laptop failed to boot as well, giving the same error message.

I can't detect even a hint of a scratch on the disk.


updated , Thank you!

Have visited your download site, downloaded the puppy_slacko_5.3.sfs file and the md5.txt, and now realize I have no idea how to use them.

Is the md5.txt for the above sfs file?

How do I boot the sfs file? Why is it called Slacko instead of lupu?

Subject description: Test on Squeeze-4.99-2
 

wuxiandianzi:

Installed the 308.sfs in Squeezed 4.99-2 Puppy.... All applications that I've tried so far, no problem!

I must say it is very, very, fast, it's hard to tell the speed from the 304 Kernel to the 308 Kernel as both are so close but it does appear that 308 has a slight edge on speed but then again, when everything with the new kernels in Puppy make it so fast to begin with, I just can't see how Puppy can get any faster?

At any rate, I'd say for sure the 308 Kernel looks like a real winner so far,at least in my book!

One thing I'm sure everyone would like to know... the advantages over the 304 Kernel?

Flash!

Does this not meet your criteria for "useless bickering"? Is it time to lock this thread then, or does that only happen to threads started by otropogo?

I assume from you past rulings, that this sort of unprovoked personal attack on otropogo is considered fair game and good posting. Whereas any attempt of otropogo to defend himself is considered "useless bickering" and grounds for immediate moderation.

Since I'm not permitted to defend the truth when I've been defamed, perhaps you would be so good as to at least clarify my record of making "sniveling aplogies" to the moderators of Murga-linux.

BTW - I have NO IDEA who the poster quoted above might be. I certainly haven't responded to him under that name publicly or privately in recent months, if ever.

Is this the kind of posting you seek to encourage by your oh-so partisan "moderation"?

Hi

Dowloaded the 3 files needed for a frugal install - sfs - vmlinuz - initrd.gz

Still the 2 main problems:
- woof pupsavefile routines don't work - see screenie - needs the pupsaveconfig pet loaded - this maybe because the partition is ntfs formatted?

- b43 wifi is not being recognised and firmware is not being unpacked (this problem also in Barry's racy with k3)

New problem - Seamonkey is in Chinese and I can't see how to make it English!!

Many thanks for these interesting experiments
Cheers
peebee

I had to be different so I made a bootable cd of Slacko-530 with your 3.0.8 kernel.Easier to test on different hardware running live.
Detected the graphics,sound and internet(wired dsl) on initial boot.On to more testing....

Peebee:
Thank you, I think the error in pupsave step has something to
Code:
/usr/sbin/shutdownconfig


this script leads sanity fails:
Code:
pupsavefunc() {
 sPTN="/dev/${SAVEPART} "
 SMNTPT="`mount | grep "$sPTN" | tr -s " " | cut -f 3 -d " "`"
 #ntfs uses /dev/fuse so '/dev/$SAVEPART' no good for grep... NOTE: this fixed later versions ntfs-3g, so this line actually redundant...

K3.08 test on slacko-5.3
so, you need 3 files: vmlinuz-3.0.8 initrd-3.0.8.gz puppy_slacko_5.3.sfs

You'd better edit your "bootconfig" file. such as grub in menu.lst:
Code:
  title slack puppy 3.0.8
  root (hd2,2) #this is my hdd,you should edit as your
  kernel /boot/s/vmlinuz-3.0.8 root=/dev/sdb3 ro vga=normal
  initrd /boot/s/initrd-3.0.8.gz

Thanks for your suggestion, but I'm afraid it's beyond my skill level. I boot Puppy strictly from the LiveCD, I've tried remastering once, and it failed dismally. I was advised to use Woof! next time, and haven't figured out what Woof! is yet.

I'm one of those strange birds who believed when told that Puppy is easy to use. I guess it is, if you're able to fit your needs into the limited capabilities of Puppy. Unfortunately, those capabilities seem to wax and wane with every new update.

Wuxiandianzi:

Many thanks for this latest pup. Presently testing a manual frugal install on a fat 32 USB 2 stick. Initial boot to desktop with working sound & DSL wired Ethernet via DHCP. No problem creating an ext2 save file.

Changed to a static I/P & installed extra fonts together with the pets listed in my slideshow. I loaded the kernel sfs but could not get NVIDIA-Linux-x86-285.05.09.run to install despite trying numerous switches. I suspect that some symlinks may also be needed?
I then opted to successfully install the Nouveaux driver which has become a lot better of late.

A slideshow of tests can be found here: http://megaswf.com/serve/1201787
(Go full screen,enable sound & may need to press F11)

In conclusion, it is as quick as a greased otter, but my preference would be for Lupu 528 with the 3.0.8 kernel.

ETP:
Thank you,I want to know if you have modprobe Nouveau modules?
if so, you will not to be allowed to compile nvidia-XXX.
when boot, you can add this to you menu.lst or others:
Code:
kernel /boot/vmlinuz root=/dev/sdX ro  quiet nomodeset

after you load kernel sfs file. you can
Code:
mv /usr/src/linux/config to /usr/src/linux/.config

and
Code:
make prepare

Code:
make scripts

I can compile NVIDIA-Linux-x86-285.05.09.run on 3.0.8
You should exit X to prompt and compile nvidia-driver.
Or you can decompress NVIDIA-Linux-x86-285.05.09.run and compile it in X.
Code:
./NVIDIA-Linux-x86-285.05.09.run -x

Code:
cd NVIDIA-Linux-x86-285.05.09/kernel

Code:
new2dir make install

When, and possibly why, did this all change over to Slacko in the stead of Lupu? What did I miss? Is this version of Lupu gone now?
Thanks,
CA
