Ok I'm curious... what file do you have on your Puppy BluRay that's larger than 4.3gb?
Do you have a super massive save file? Shocked lol

Bluray-R is cheaper per G. Plus you do not need to figure-out what stays and what goes. Laughing

Also after on 1.5T WD portable hard drive decided on its own to continue to suck power but refuses to communicate with the outside world, I've become paranoid. My much older 1.5 Seagate brick (with extra power brick) started to seem off It took 3 days and 48 bluray discs to backup (cost for 50 was $28 ) It's still alive, but everything on it at that time was safe!!!!

I have a couple of comments.

First of all, as of 6.0.0, I believe, the initrd has contained the base and mosule sfs files. This makes the initrd file huge. I have a 10MB boot partition and I have to edit the initrd, move the files, and modify the init script with every release. This is very tedious. I preferred the previous releases with the files already separate.

Secondly, I upgraded from 6.0.1 to this one and it takes about 40 seconds after boot for my mouse and keyboard to start working. On 6.0.1 they both worked instantaneously. They are both USB devices.

safe

Contentious? I'd like to get advice on the comparitive technologies.
Subjectively, I have perfectly preserved floppies from the '80s, kept at room temperature in a dark dust-free enclosure. Slightly younger IDE hard discs in perfect readable order. Expecting at least a century of ditto, excepting solar flares, house conflagration and asteroid hits.
Then there's optical (and magnetic with floppies!) storage - thin metal films onto an organic substrate.
Looks like another battle between metallurgists and organic chemists?! Hieroglyphs on clay might be a better choice?
I know which one I'm backing.

yea safe if kept that way, and still readable decades later. CD's from the 80s still can be played on the bluray drive, impossible to find sana floppy drives, IDE are going the same way.. Few more years and that technology of IDE will disappear. Also optical media do not contain microchips so, bad xray, gamma burst, EMP attack, near miss with an asteroid, Carrington effect, magnetic reversal etc. Even with some damage other data can still be read. Rolling Eyes

Now kids with sticky fingers, microwave ovens, burn side up left on the dash of your car in TX summer, strong lasers spell doom for optical.

Thanks. It works for me.

[Edit] It also works with a USB optical drive. But it needed a reboot before the "eject" command would work properly.

PostPosted: Fri 26 Apr 2013, 20:31    Post subject: UEFI  

As UEFI was discussed during the beta period, I looked at it a bit and I have a question. If my machine only boots from "clean" "read only" ISO images, does UEFI have any benefit for that environment?

I just want to be sure that I fully understood the stuff I read back then.
TIA

See the FAQs http://distro.ibiblio.org/fatdog/web/faqs/Networking.html also found on the browser's home page.

UEFI is a replacement firmware for BIOS that's found on newer computers. You ether have it or you don't, though some UEFI implementations do have a legacy (BIOS) mode. Fatdog64-620 will boot on BIOS computers or UEFI computers.

I unchecked 'Sofware mixing (shared access)' from the second window after I chose the sound card from
Control Panel/Sound/Fatdog64 Set Default Sound Card and the annoying nasty noise from my HDMI output doesn't bother me anymore . Now my Sapphire HD 7870 XT works great in Fatdog64 620 . Very Happy

About the watermark from AMD Arrow Catalyst 13.4 is available now.
kirk , could you make another pet of it , when you find some time , please Question Embarassed
