Still running Fatdog64-600 from multi-session DVD with basically no problems. Great job. Smile

I have managed to persuade Fatdog to run on my desktop computer but as with other Puppy versions it doesn't pick up the raid0 array. Coincidentally I discovered that a version of the dmraid pet was uploaded to the nluug Fatdog repository earlier today which I have downloaded and installed. However the dm-mod kernel module does not load and with my insufficient knowledge I have been unable to see why. Has anyone else tried this pet yet or can anyone give me any clue as to why dm-mod refuses to load? This machine has to run Windows as well (for my better half!) so I am stuck with the requirement to use dmraid as there is a ton of data on the raid array that I need to access. I had no problems making dmraid work in Lucid but I would rather use Fatdog as my main OS.


I have used jamesbond's new compile of dmraid [the one now available as a .pet] and it mounts my raid0 without any problems. dmraid reports that it can mount the following controllers / arrays:

asr : Adaptec HostRAID ASR (0,1,10)
ddf1 : SNIA DDF1 (0,1,4,5,linear)
hpt37x : Highpoint HPT37X (S,0,1,10,01)
hpt45x : Highpoint HPT45X (S,0,1,10)
isw : Intel Software RAID (0,1,5,01)
jmicron : JMicron ATARAID (S,0,1)
lsi : LSI Logic MegaRAID (0,1,10)
nvidia : NVidia RAID (S,0,1,10,5)
pdc : Promise FastTrack (S,0,1,10)
sil : Silicon Image(tm) Medley(tm) (0,1,10)
via : VIA Software RAID (S,0,1,10)
dos : DOS partitions on SW RAIDs

This is working with both my RAID controllers. I also have a Silicon Image on I've yet to try. The command which mounts my Intel RAID array is embarrassingly simple:
Code:
 dmraid -ay


If that doesn't work for you, then I'd advise mounting the RAID however it worked in other puppy[s]. dmraid should work the same across distros I think? Unless I'm not understanding your problem.

Actually I figured out the problem, it's that they were not installed with the package manager, although in other Puppies all installed packages show up.

All installed packages show up. In my earlier post, at least two installed programs shown were not installed by package manager.

Jim1911 is right. You can manually check whether the "missing" packages are registered correctly - just open the file /root/.packages/user-installed-packages. If they are found inside but is not shown by the package manager, then it's a bug, let me know (please send the file to me). If they are not listed in that file to begin with ... well, try to install again and then check the file again, are they inside after that? If still not, let me know which package exactly and I'll try to duplicate that.

I had already deleted that save file although I have the same problem on two other save files on different ext4 partitions, sda2 and sdb2. Sda2 was formatted using FD64-600's version of gparted. Both save files are working properly.
Thanks Jim. Apparently guess_fstypes is not reliable for checking savefile. I will update the tool to use disktype instead.

It appears the problem may have been caused by the 23oz theme. Once removed all worked fine.
Thanks, that sounds good.

dm-mod module is built-in to the kernel and is automatically loaded at each boot. You don't need to load that manually. Яadiøaktive TΣknik can probably help you further than I can.


cheers!

Wow, I think I know that place and have drunk coffee there several times. Is it in Gambetta?

Hi Jamesbond and Kirk,
just been reminded of icon drive wobble.
FYI
fresh boot drive icons - ok
2,3,5,6,7,8,9,10,11,12 (4 was a extended partition)

open gparted
2,3,5,9,12,7,11,6,8,10 - mounted drives 2 and 3 did not move

close and reopen gparted
2,3,12,8,9,5,6,11,7,10
etc

DC

The wobble can be fixed by going to Control Panel -> Display -> Event Manager and changing the icon-size values from 64 to 63. I will make it 63 as the default in when I release consolidated fixes.

When booting fatdog from USB install my savefile on occasion is not being loaded (doesn't happen that often)

Trying to follow the instructions in the faq's I did the following.

label fatdog
kernel vmlinuz
initrd initrd
append search
devwait=5

i.e. added devwait=5 as above.
Is this correct.

Thanks.

Instead of searching for the savefile, open the Control Panel > Utilities and run the Savefile Argument Builder. It will create the correct boot argument so Fatdog doesn't have to search.

Also "waitdev=5" should probably be on the end of the append line. And it's NOT "devwait".

Thanks again for the reply.

You really must concentrate when making changes. Embarassed

I will delete my entry to syslinux file and go with your first suggestion.

You may also need the waitdev=5 argument.

Did this so far:

label fatdog
kernel vmlinuz
initrd initrd
append search waitdev=5

on rebooted the 5 second delay showed on screen.

Will try the savefile argument builder next.

This should all be on one line
Code:
append initrd=initrd waitdev=5 ...

Why not use Grub4Dos Bootloader Config? It would set this up for you.

In case I haven't been clear, waitdev-5 is working well. no mishap so far.

I've been taking the easy way out by doing my USB installs through windows using unetbootin.exe.
I've installed quite a number of puppies this way so far, its so easy.

I've just tried the savefile argument builder and it gave me this:
"savefile=ram:uuid:SCANDISK:/fd64save.ext4"

However having appended it in the syslinux file it failed to find the savefile on numerous boots.
That is with and without waitdev=5.

So I'm back with waitdev=5 and that's working fine.
l wonder why the filesave argument didn't work?

The UUID of a flash drive should be a string of digits like
Code:
4AC0-1596

I don't know how it could be a word like SCANDISK.

Assuming that the flash drive is sdb1, open a console and type
Code:
blkid /dev/sdb1

What do you get?

Please post your full syslinux.cfg file.

Sleep time intervened:

SCANDISK is the name of the USB stick o.k.

sh: blkid/dev/sdb1: No such file or directory
Obviously something amiss here.
