1. My DebianDog CD-RW, burned using "DebianDog-Porteus-jwm_icewm-beta_custom,01-remaster,squashfs.iso", is working well.
Typing this from it.

2. Decided to use "ISO Master" to edit live.cfg in the ISO to include changes=EXIT:/05-DebianDog/changes.dat
Did this by swapping in the copy I have kept and edit as needed.
Here's the total content of the new live.cfg on the ISO:
Code:
#This will search for /changes.dat file at root of every HDD or USB drive partition.
label Porteus RAM Save /
kernel /live/vmlinuz1
append initrd=/live/initrd1.xz noauto from=/ copy2ram changes=/changes.dat

#This will search for save file changes.dat inside directory /05-DebianDog at root of every HDD and USB drive partition.
label Porteus RAM Save /05-DebianDog/changes.dat
kernel /live/vmlinuz1
append initrd=/live/initrd1.xz from=/ noauto copy2ram  changes=EXIT:/05-DebianDog/changes.dat

#This will boot in RAM without searching for save file anywhere. If there is save file it will not be used.
label Porteus RAM No-Save
kernel /live/vmlinuz1
append initrd=/live/initrd1.xz noauto from=/ copy2ram


3. Named the new ISO = DebianDog-Porteus-jwm_icewm-beta_custom,01-remaster,squashfs-1.iso
Used this to make yet another CD-RW and booted that using the "Porteus RAM save" menu option.

a. Got the following warning/halt during boot:
[I copied this by hand and typed it here]
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
"Changing root directory
initrd=/live/initrd1.xz from=/ noauto copy2ram changes=EXIT:/05-DebianDog/changes.dat BOOT_IMAGE=/live/vmlinuz1
Live system is ready now - starting Debian
cp: can't stat "/union/sbin/init" : No such file or directory
!!ERROR!!
Something went wrong and I cannot continue
Press Ctrl+Alt+Del to reboot.
"

Hi Sylvander,
I had a close look at your boot codes to see if there's anything wrong but it's all OK.
You only edited live.cfg? No other changes made in the iso?.
Looks like you booted the second entry, how about the first or third do they work?
The only difference I see is that "from=/" is first parameter in contrast to the others.
Maybe try change it to:
Code:
append initrd=/live/initrd1.xz noauto from=/ copy2ram changes=EXIT:/05-DebianDog/changes.dat

But I doubt this will help.
No need to make new iso for it, just press [Tab] just after the boot screen appears and you can edit it.

a. Did this.
Selected "Porteus RAM save", and hit [Tab].
It was tricky editing the line of code, because each time I hit the backstep key it made a copied line of code with 1 character [on the end] missing.
However, I got there eventually.
Looked like it was going to work, proceeded to load DebianDog, but ended up at the same halt/error [having displayed the newly typed code some lines before, so it got through OK]. Sad

That's a pity.
I ask again, please answer:

1. "You only edited live.cfg? No other changes made in the iso?"
Correct. Very Happy

2. "Looks like you booted the second entry"
Correct. Very Happy
I assume you refer to the 2nd CD-RW made using DebianDog-Porteus-jwm_icewm-beta_custom,01-remaster,squashfs-1.iso

3. "how about the first or third do they work?"
Assuming you refer to the 2nd CD-RW made using DebianDog-Porteus-jwm_icewm-beta_custom,01-remaster,squashfs-1.iso :
I haven't tried these yet; will do that now; what I did [I think in error] was to test the 1st CD-RW made using DebianDog-Porteus-jwm_icewm-beta_custom,01-remaster,squashfs.iso, and first [, 2nd] & third boot options worked with this disk.
p.s. I copied changes.dat from /mnt/home/05-DebianDog to /mnt/home [home being sda5], so that the first option would work.

4. OK...
Tested the 2nd disk, and all 3 boot options halt/fail with the error.
Looks like I messed up that ISO->CD-RW.
Don't understand how I could have done that.
Do you think it a good idea to have a 2nd go at it, to try to get it right?

I don't think this has something to do with the boot error but DebianDog isolinux is from Debian Squeeze (old stable) live cd. I guess new isolinux from Wheezy or SID will fix TAB edit menu ssue. I will try to upgrade isolinux files with newer for next DebianDog version.

3. (remove # lines)
I thought/think placing a # as the 1st character in a line got the line ignored.
Hence, no need to remove/delete it.
Am I wrong? Aught I to have deleted those lines?

Better delete # lines. Tested with mixed live.cfg.
Boot entry with # line above behaves as you described (new line after every backstep key).
Boot entry without # line does not add new line after backstep key.

Done.
SUCCESS! Very Happy
As follows:

a. Deleted the 3 lines from my backup copy = /mnt/live/mnt/sda5/05-DebianDog/live.cfg

b. Deleted the 2nd ISO = DebianDog-Porteus-jwm_icewm-beta_custom,01-remaster,squashfs-1.iso

c. Used "ISO Master" to replace the live.cfg file in the 1st ISO = DebianDog-Porteus-jwm_icewm-beta_custom,01-remaster,squashfs.iso with the backup copy.

d. "Save as" the new ISO = DebianDog-Porteus-jwm_icewm-beta_custom,01-remaster,squashfs-1.iso
This ISO with the same name as in b. above has the altered live.cfg file included.

e. Made a new CD-RW with the new 2nd ISO, and booted it.
All 3 of the boot choices work.

f. Having booted the 2nd boot choice = "Porteus RAM save"...
I then rebooted, and as it shut down it gave me 30sec to choose "to save or not to save".
GREAT RESULT! Very Happy
Typing this from it.

1. Working with your latest [DebianDog-Porteus-jwm_icewm-beta.iso of 2014 May 15th].

2. Booted "Porteus RAM save", using copy of the save file from the previous version held in the root folder of sda5.
Is this OK?
Seems OK.

3. All is generally OK [except my keyboard is misbehaving again; do I need to fix this again?], BUT...

4. I used your commands given HERE...
Code:
apt-get update
apt-get install wine

Both the update and the install seemed to go OK, except...

5. When I run the winefile command I get:
Code:
root@debian:~# winefile
bash: winefile: command not found
root@debian:~#


6. I intend to repeat the previous steps to run the new CD just like the previous CD.

No, it is not OK and you have dpkg database broken in this case, because /var/lib/dpkg files from your save file overlay the /var/lib/dpkg files from the iso image. This why you have wine config file problem. Use updated DebianDog iso only with new empty save file.

Yes, all settings like keyboard configuration you have to make again.

Quote:
5. When I run the winefile command I get:
Code:
root@debian:~# winefile
bash: winefile: command not found
root@debian:~#

Because of the save file from previous version. Here is wine install and winefile output with empty save file:

Uploaded new OpenBox/XFCE iso.

Two changes only from the previous iso:
1. Mplayer2 replaced with mplayer again. Seems this compiled mplayer2 does not work on some old hardware.
2. Small desktop configuration change. Wallpaper (for user account only) was not showing on some old machines.
