Frugal install failure with April 7.0.3 live ISO.

This same machine had successful frugal install from live ISO with 7.0.2, A64X2 2GB RAM into EXT4 partition. Ran the install link from console and just had some error about not a block device:

Code:

Same old box as other post. Booted into a full install of Tahrpup 6.0.2 and attempted a frugal install with the install script.

Download failed.

Code:
root# ./installquirky.x86

Attempted a frugal install from the live cd. At the end of copying files there was an error message " Quirky installer: error Sorry,there was an error.Aborting."

The sizes of the copied files looked about right so I quickly edited the menu.lst (installer aborted before it got to that part) and rebooted.

Posting from April 7.0.3 frugal now but it refuses to save. April seems to think I'm running from the cd even though I booted from a frugal on the internal hdd.

Wonder if it has anything to do with the missing q.sfs?

About enough testing for tonight.

Just to remove some variables, just did a frugal install from the April 7.0.2 live cd. Same hardware, no problems at all.

OK, I figured out my problem with April 7.0.3 frugal install failure:
The installquirky GUI installer is very particular about which platform you run it from for frugal install.

First tries on Athlon machine 2GB:
Install from Live 7.0.3 ISO - Failed/Abort (not a block device error)
Then tried install from other OS on same box:
Quirky 6.1.4 - installer failed to even start, error with liblzma.so.5

Then tried from Puppies:
Slacko 5.7 - FAIL/Abort (not a block device error)
Precise 5.7.1 - FAIL/Abort (not a block device error)
(previously, only Slacko and Precise and higher were needed to install Quirkies)

On to another machine, Core2Duo 2GB:
Install from Live 7.0.3 ISO - Failed/Abort (not a block device error)
From Quirky 6.0.5 ... SUCCESS!!!
Hmmm...maybe it likes Tahr...

Back to 1st machine:
From Tahr 6.0.2 - SUCCESS!!!

So the installquirky seems very finicky about where you run it from for the frugal install. It likes Tahr flavors, but doesn't even like it run from itself inside live 7.0.3 environment!?

OK, I'm done for the night...


edit: previous successful installs of April 7.0.3 to USB flash and to HD partition were done from Quirky 6.2 and April 7.0.2.

Tried the installquirky.x86 installer.
The vbox of the first dialog (IQ_DLGF) of the /tmp/selfgzNUMBER/installquirky script may need to be scrollable, because there are cases (as the picture shows) that runs out of the screen and is not usable.
This may also be true for other dialogs in the process latter as they will not fit in a small (VGA) screen. (I used "<vbox scrollable=\"true\" space-expand=\"true\" space-fill=\"true\" width=\"600\" height=\"600\">" in line 219)
Also it would be nice if it could provide a download site choice as ibiblio is particularly slow. (when I changed install-quirky-to-... script to use a faster site failed of some problem with the hash file)
BTW, is there any reason that the script is using a windows-specific encoding (cp1252)? Makes it a bit tricky to review it in puppy as geany will open it to a blank file.
More when the ibiblio download finishes...

...The Quirky Installer window is a little too tall for the 1024x600 screen and the bottom two elements are not visible. But I knew what they were from running on another desktop, so I tabbed through it blindly OK.


Just a friendly hint as an alternative to "blindly tabbing"

Keeping Alt key pressed
you can move any window
with left mouse tab pressed.

Perfect upgrade from 7.02 to 7.0.3 using the service pack.
Wow, insanely fast booting!

Gratefully,
Bert

Any spacial setting?
My slacko-5.7 full install boots in 14 seconds. In the same hardware and a different partition of the same hard drive April 7.0.3 boots in 15 seconds.
What am I missing? Confused

No, I was just comparing the April 7.0.3 boot time to the April 7.0.2 boot time. Didn't measure anything. The felt difference was remarkable.

Installed 7.0.3 Full on ext4 Partition. All is well. Smile
Boot up is fastest of all Puppies I've tried (6 seconds?). Using only 90MB of RAM on startup.

Only tiny hiccup was that I had to save "april-7.0.3.usfs.xz" (141MB) manually from don570's link to hard drive (mnt/sda2) outside of RAM because my RAM was too full (11MB free) to use automatic method from install (which tries to save file inside RAM).

.


Yeah, this is the main problem with the Installer, when the "working space" is inadequate. That is at top of the list to fix.

Tried the GUI installer with 7.0.3 and let it download option. Got an error when it tried to save file to /tmp location. It didn't ask to save somewhere else where there was more space. So I just grabbed the file manually and install went fine. Installed to USB flash and HD partition.

Tried the ISO. Frugal install option went away for netbook. Install link just runs GUI installer for drive or partition. Assume it was hard denial by the under 1.2 GB RAM tick box, whereas on 7.0.2 it let it slide?

The HD install footprint really is getting smaller, nice! It was under 500MB on 6.1.4 and then blew up to around a Gig for 6.0.5 and 6.2. April was 800MB but now down to 600MB with 7.0.3.


Yes again, this not-enough-space is at top of my list to fix.

So for now, message to everyone, better to download the Quirky file, somewhere with plenty of space, then run the Installer.

jd7654,
In your case the Installer wants to download into /tmp. I never encountered a problem with that, as I am testing on a laptop with 4GB RAM, and the tmpfs mounted on /tmp has a quite large maximum size limit.

I did another installation from Mint 17 64bit to a 128gb usb 3.0 ssd.

I added radky's FbBox-2.0 + some other pets.

It's working well.
