Error Cannot Find Puppy On Ide Cd Boot Media

Default is "us". google unetbootin...it will do it all for you, for puppy linux and many more distros. Note, the files initrd.gz, pup_xxx.sfs and vmlinuz could be in a folder, say /boot, as long as GRUB is configured appropriately. For as small as the foot print is, it really does a nice job of giving you a functional system. his comment is here

In many versions the user will be prompted on startup to configure Puppy; also, on shutdown(/reboot) the user is asked whether to create a savefile. He booted Puppy2 using GRUB, where initrd.gz (initial ramdisk file), vmlinuz (the kernel) and pup_xxx.sfs (all the Puppy files) are in a hard drive partition.

The very first time that you boot the Puppy live-CD on a computer, a personal storage file named "pup001" is created automatically. The situation is just like booting from a live-CD -- on first boot Puppy will be in PUPMODE 5, as no persistent storage has yet been created. Can install it on a flash drive via UUI in Windows and that helps.

I'm at work right now but I'll check it out when I get home thanks for you help. MSI G31TM-P21/P35 (MS-7529) Way too modern for this Puppy. Update: Puppy 1.0.5 does the above slightly differently.

I cant get used to the fact that the whole OS and all the programs load into memory. If you put it there, it would, but also if you run the install-to-hard-drive-option-1 script. ...in that case, there's a "gotcha" as when you bootup a new version of Puppy on Everything I need works on it from the live cd. matt_risiOctober 22nd, 2006, 03:06 AMThe whole idea behind Puppy is to counter all the bloated "full feature" Linux distros (yes, like our beloved Ubuntu) so that older pc's can run them

but i will stick with my xubuntu... :) CyvrosMay 31st, 2007, 10:16 AMthanks... SunSpydaFebruary 11th, 2009, 10:24 PMI used Puppy Linux ages ago but I preferred DSL (Damn Small Linux). Pumm4August 30th, 2007, 09:35 PMAll I can say is wow. kagashe thanks kagashe for the info.

  • During a session, new and changed directories and files will be written to the top layer (off-green).
  • or is it that I have too new a hardware for the kernel ? 214R does work as well as the 214X (ttuuxx) is working.
  • In fact, I purchased one recently that didn't even have a CD and it stated specifically on the packet that it works with XP and Linux without any special driver.
  • If the USB interface is USB2 (rather than the older USB1) then the usr_cram.fs file should load quite fast, although being about 53M.

Puppy runs on my old Pentium 133MHz with 32MB ram, dual booting with win98 (not even SE) on a 2 GB hard drive. What has happened here is that at bootup Puppy found the pup_save.3fs file is on a fast hard drive partition, so decided to mount it directly on the top layer.

Way back in the early days of Puppy, I did write a page on the steps that Puppy goes through when booting. this content However, there is a native ext2/3 driver for NT/XP, and there are also some Windows applications that allow viewing and reading files from a ext2/3 filesystem. Also, to avoid writes to Flash during a session, you would need to copy all of the pup100 files contents into RAM, meaning that you will need a massive amount of recently I posted over on the Puppy forum a few screen shots.

bluez is the very latest 3.10 not Feisty's 3.9. Solution 2: If you want to stay with the puppy1 approach and retain a personal storage file, now named pup_save.3fs, no problems. A note about the second layer. http://haywirerobotics.com/error-cannot/error-cannot-load-boot-img.html sda1...

floppy_stuttgart Linux - Newbie 10 04-05-2015 04:20 AM [SOLVED] Start PapugLinux from USB; which boot codes? As soon as I changed the DVD drive from IDE to SATA, they wouldn't boot. It is small, fast, light and does everything I need it to (except play games, but I have an XP PC dedicated to that).

I guess I'm missing something here so it would be great with some help to point me in the right direction.

Also see Save File - AKA 'Pup Save' stores updates, in a frugal installation. The ".3fs" means that the file contains a ext3 filesystem. Therefore, the contents of /usr could be compressed, and that is what Puppy does. I've been running Puppy on the eMachine below for 2 days now, and it's the most functional desktop environment for low-end PC's I've ever seen..

The advantage of this option is that it doesn't impact on the partiton in any way and whatever is already in the partition, like Windows or another Linux distro, is unaffected.

TMPFSMNT="/mnt/tmpfs" #tmpfs created elsewhere, not a layer. It runs fast. By default does the system look for an OS in the USB before to looks to the hard drive? http://www.puppylinux.org/user/viewpage.php?page_id=1 Ubuntu Forums are obviously seen as an authority on what is good in the distro world! :) And the video clip itself just makes me want to try it: http://www.lulu.tv/?p=5448

But no, not trying to boot another saved puppy sfs @mikeslr: The dual boot option could perhaps also work. Now it is, and my enthusiasm has cooled. Puppy does have a card up his sleeve, so to speak -- if the PC has a Linux swap partition Puppy will automatically use that, which is used to increase the Edit when actually awake: Here's the thread, http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=453164#453164.

I created a 128 MB swap partition for Puppy to use using a text-only distro called HAL91, and then Puppy boots and runs pretty quick on that old clunker. it all worked very well and seems simple and easy to work with.:) whitefortJune 28th, 2008, 12:32 PMIt's a great tiny distro, but while I raved about it earlier in this I recommend you guys give it a shot, the iso is only 70 megs! Puppy is a nice little distro - the problem has always been the customized package system, making for small selection.

After that, the ubuntu install went flawlessly. Or there may be a swap file/partition, but that is going to be slow also. AntmanOctober 3rd, 2007, 02:44 PMI will wait for a few days, always advisable after a new release.
