Testing the latest RC version. The 5323 fails to boot.
Can not find the main .sfs I go test the older one again
5321? and see if that one still boots.
Yes 5321 still boots using same computer same code
for booting.

title Slacko-5323 B5 1024x768 JWM. nolapic rootnoverify (hd0,1)
find --set-root --ignore-floppies --ignore-cd /slackorc/initrd.gz
kernel /slackorc/vmlinuz psubdir=slackorc puppy i915.modeset=1 pfix=fsck
initrd /slackorc/initrd.gz



title Slacko-5321 B5 rootnoverify (hd0,1)
find --set-root --ignore-floppies --ignore-cd /slacko5321/initrd.gz
kernel /slacko5321/vmlinuz psubdir=slacko5321 puppy i915.modeset=1 pfix=fsck
initrd /slacko5321/initrd.gz


I also tested using rootnoverify (hd0,1) could still not find the .sfs
But the old one boots using it now. What could that be causing
this failure?

Never ever had this problem before....

Attempted to do my usual pristine, manual, frugal install of 5.3.2.3...on my ntfs formatted harddisk in my HP550 laptop

Downloaded the ISO, opened it successfully, selected the 3 files, copied them to a standard directory that has booted many many times before using grub4dos standard menu.lst....

Rebooted and got 3 * red "pausing" and then a failed to find the 5.3.2.3.sfs file....

I'll try another download of the ISO....
[edit] 2nd download - same result - won't boot... Sad [/edit]

Cheers
peebee

Same problem that I have. Something or somebody has changed the .sfs?


slacko-5.3.2.3-SCSI.iso 113M, RC status

but lupu reports that it has only 108MB or 112 ... see my picture
and not 113 MB

Hi Nooby

Sounds like the shared culprit between us is the ntfs harddisk....

Wonder which woof mick has used? Barry has been altering the boot files I think for his internationalisation project - could this have affected ntfs support??? Just clutching at straws.

Or it could be something to do with the new compression type being used in the k3 kernels - tz instead of gz? That might also explain the different size showing in lupu which doesn't have tz???? Again talking from little knowledge here lol.

Cheers
peebee

Sorry I should have explained that I boot on NTFS too.
Maybe Mick don't have that and therefore did not notice
it failed to boot? So could be what you suggest. A change in woof.

Here's the really strange thing, I'm using exactly the same woof and kernel as 5321.. the only thing it could possibly be is aufs-util.. will try it and boot from ntfs, oh and I did boot 5321 from ntfs Smile

booting from 5323 DVD

I had some slight mix up with the previous save file
but have deleted it now (I thought it had been copied over
during the first shutdown)

Only problem so far is the mounted CD drive opens on top of the first HD icon (near menu bar bottom left) I only have two hard drives.

Ok, thanks L18L, just made it in.. I am brewing the next now.

ntfs-3g was the wrong one in the initrd.gz, my mistake. (note to self, if you document something, READ it!)

So when do you upload the corrected version then? No hurry
but would be cool to know in case I get motivated again to test Smile

nooby,

Within the half hour I will upload, but it will take awhile to get there, so maybe 2- to 3- hours.

I'll be sleeping by then but I'll make an announce when I start the upload.. the rest will rely on patience Smile

BTW, ntfs-3g works, posting from an ntfs frugal now...

RC2 5.3.2.4 Is Here .. both the normal and the PAE [and checksums]


At the time of typing, the version that link leads to seems to be 5.3.2.3 - upgrade from 5.3.2.1 seems to have gone smoothly for me so far.
