Hi starhawk,

It sounds like something went wrong with STEP3. (Preparation of boot stick or card)

I am aware that I did not provide detailed instructions for that step. They can be found here:
http://www.syslinux.org/wiki/index.php/HowTos

EDIT 22/12/13
If you are still struggling please see EDIT at the end of my original post in this thread.

@ETP -- I was following Barry's directions. That's the only thing I did. I'm afraid your stuff was too long for me to keep straight, so I didn't pay it much attention. I'm using an SD card anyhow (not a flash drive) and it doesn't have anything else on it (nor will it -- it's only 2gb...)

@ starhawk,

Arhhhhhhhhh……… Confusion reigns! ……. Quite funny really.
On the subject of confusion, there is some guy posting comments on Barry’s new blog called “Admin” who seems to know as much, if not more, than Barry does.
Perhaps he is some sort of alter ego! Let’s hope he can solve your problem!

Hi @BarryK

Thanks for this project. New refinements as this evolution depicts.

Questions
Understanding the work which has been done for the distro's installation to Flash/HDD units, will there be a DVD/Blu-ray (ISO) for distro's RAM-only operations produced?

Any insights on this versus the past would be helpful if the direction in this area is changing. For example, is it true that session files have no play in this current incarnation of Quirky?

Thanks and have a Happy Holiday Season...Everyone
Edit: 2nd question.

PostPosted: Sun 22 Dec 2013, 15:19    Post subject: My report on Quirky 6.0  

I did another install to a 32gb SDHC card and then installed the
proprietary nvidia driver + wine 1.7.9 + vlc 2.1.2 for windows just to
make sure it wasn't a fluke Smile

# report-video
VIDEO REPORT: Quirky, version 6.0.1

Chip description:
VGA compatible controller: NVIDIA Corporation GF108 [GeForce GT 430] (rev a1)

Requested by /etc/X11/xorg.conf:
Depth (bits, or planes): 24
Modules requested to be loaded: dbe xtrap
Drivers requested to be loaded: nvidia

Probing Xorg startup log file (/var/log/Xorg.0.log):
Driver loaded (and currently in use): nvidia
Loaded modules: dbe dri2 extmod fb glx kbd mouse ramdac wfb

Actual rendering on monitor:
Resolution: 1920x1080 pixels (513x292 millimeters)
Depth: 24 planes

I also had
zcombo_xorg_glsoft-20131207-1-i486-quirky6.pet,zcombo_xorg_glsoft_DEV-20131207-1-i486-quirky6.pet,devx_quirky_6.0.1.sfs, and kernel_src-3.12.2-patched.sfs loaded/installed.

It takes plenty of time and patience to install on a kind of slow SDHC card, much
faster from a hard drive partition install.

Is there a way Quirky 6.0.1 could be tested in VirtualBox?

NOt sure if this helps, but, here is a BootManager setup from @ETP that might be useful.

Hope this helps

Ok after the teaser this is the instructions:
1. Create new VM, with new virtual disk - say (512MB minimal, 1GB comfortable).
2. Boot puppy ISO on that VM.
Note: the rest is to be done within your VM
3. gparted that new virtual disk, format it say to ext4 (or ext3 or ex2 ...), make sure to flag it as BOOTABLE.
4. install syslinux mbr: "dd if=/usr/share/syslinux/mbr.bin of=/dev/sda"
5. Mount that partition, says as /mnt/sda1
6. Copy quirky.usfs.xz to within the virtualbox
7. unxz it - turn it into quirky.usfs.
8. unsquashfs it to /mnt/sda1 - "unsquashfs -f -d /mnt/sda1 quirky.usfs"
9. install syslinux bootloader "extlinux -i /mnt/sda1/boot/syslinux"
10. edit /mnt/sda1/boot/syslinux/syslinux.cfg and
- change that "root=PARTUUID" stuff to "root=/dev/sda1"
- change "kernel vmlinuz" to "kernel /boot/vmlinuz"
11. umount /mnt/sda1, and remove puppy ISO
12. Boot - and presto ! Quirky 6.0.1 (and it works, boot straight to desktop on VB 4.3.6) Razz

Any chance we can boot to ram? Back in the 2.0 puppylinux days I was able to take a full install and compress that image into initrd.gz and do a standard boot with kernel and initrd using whatever frugal or my case testing multisession loader code.

Hi charlie6,

I am not sure why you are asking about the syslinux-4.05-86.pet. Barry describes everything you need to install to any size Flash drive in METHOD A:
See:
http://distro.ibiblio.org/quirky/quirky6/x86/quirky-6.0.1/release-Quirky-6.0.1.htm

His script “install-quirky-to-drive.sh” includes syslinux and sets everything up on the stick.

Yep, i got my flash USB drive formated (sdb1 vfat'ed; and sdb4 not (*) f2fs'ed, but well ext4'ed), and GParted reported to have a boot flag; but it won't boot .... so i guess syslinux-3.73 to be the culprit ... Confused
syslinux-4.05-86.pet is reported in this thread to give better results ...
charlie
(*) got an error message when selecting f2fs : «sdb: not such file or directory»
