PostPosted: Wed 10 Feb 2016, 03:14    Post subject: Puppy Linux Boot Parameters & General Linux Boot Parms  

First
In reviewing this page which supports Puppy Linux boot parameters, I can find no mentions of the syntax requirements or defaults for the Puppy Boot Parameters themselves (those are the options BEFORE the equal sign).

Questions
    Are boot options case sensitive? OR is case NOT a factor and spelling is the only factor?
    What are the default values?

Next
In reviewing this page which supports Puppy Linux boot parameters, I can find no mentions of the case requirements for the General Boot Parameters shown. The parms begin their topic area in UPPER case while the supporting paragraphs show lower case. Defaults, on this page, are usually shown.

Questions
    Are these boot options case sensitive? OR is case NOT a factor?

Last
There is a 2nd, separate, page showing additional Puppy Linux Parameters. In reviewing this page which supports additional Puppy Linux boot parameters, I can find no mentions of its relationship to the Puppy Boot Parameters themselves (those are the options BEFORE the equal sign).

Questions
    Are these boot options related and to be used in conjunction with the first mentioned set, above? Why are they separate?

Thanks in advance for any clarity on options used in booting Puppy Linux.

Please move post if in wrong place:

Slacko-6.5.0:
Want to boot from USB-which works,
and save to sda2-which is either forbidden or beyond my ability. Is there a boot parameter I could set? Like:

kernel /vmlinuz pmedia=usbflash pfix=fsck, PupSfs=/sda2/slackosave_crypta.2fs

I've tried editing the SAVEFILE contents to be /../sda2
but no good there either. I can't get it to save. I'll try (0,1) and see if that helps later. I know it's nooking for a partition number on the same drive, I'm hoping it can be tricked into another drive. I won't do it now, I've got too much stuff running and it's a PITA to start again from scratch if it doesn't work, although I suppos I could just save a slackosave.2fs in sdb3, to keep what I have, and reconfigure SAVEFILE for testing? The old brain is a bit slow these days.

With Tahr-6.0.5 I could boot from a cd and save on sda2.


BTW. I've discovered the when using a USB 2.0 memory stick in a 3.0 port, I need to lock the port to 2.0 or a puppy USB stick won't find the sfs file. It defaults back to 3.0 and can't read the device. It probably just need more time, but a BIOS change is not difficult.

There is no reason why a Slacko could not use sda2 if tahrpup use it, in my knowledge.
