There are other puppies to try. Then I downloaded fbxkb-0.4.tgz (http://downloads.sourceforge.net/fbxkb/fbxkb-0.4.tgz?modtime=1097961611&big_mirror=0) source package, extracted it, entered the directory and issued ./configure and make commands. (Note versions 0.5 and 0.6 of fbxkb do not work on Puppy Linux). i'll try your suggestions along with ones i found at http://www.puppyos.net/forum/?1163544670 (if anyone else is having similar issues) Back to top Davepet Joined: 20 Oct 2007Posts: 2Location: Northern California Posted: It would blow your mind away in its speed and configuration tools. http://sonoportal.net/error-cannot/error-cannot-stat-boot-grub-boot-img.html
I recommend you guys give it a shot, the iso is only 70 megs! The technique used is when usr_cram.fs is created, its size, in bytes, is recorded in /etc/sizeusrcram, which can then be used to check against usr_cram.fs at boot-time.

Newer hardware being employed than what the kernel in this OS is able to recognise, I'm sorry to say. PUPMODE=12 #rc.shutdown will know nothing to save. #still need a tmpfs, to load pup_xxx.sfs... i have a bcm4319 card. I find it quite funny that i can run a complete operating system from a cd, on a laptop with only 128Mb ram and watch it run better & faster than
There is no ramdisk, the partition itself is mounted directly on the top "layer". You see, it is quite logical! only problem is, when i did a hard install, it rewrote xorg.conf, and my xserver crashed upon the next ubuntu boot. When booting up LegacyOS is says: "ERROR, cannot find Puppy on 'idecd' boot media.

I popped in puppy linux and destroyed the evil windows partition that was causing the problem. http://puppylinux.dreamhosters.com/versions/TeenPup/2009Legacy-avail-for-download-2.html Whatever the situation on your PC, Puppy will work out the best configuration, totally automatically.
Is there a parameter to pass? Otherwise it is great. go puppy! Making a start at writing this section...
On a PC with less RAM, Puppy will still run, but slower. It is small, fast, light and does everything I need it to (except play games, but I have an XP PC dedicated to that). doesn't make any sense to me why it would fail like that. Actually though, it is all quite simple.
On the otherhand, a 256M Flash drive would have a 180M pup100 file which would be too big. Check This Out A friend of mine, who knows only about Ubuntu, when he came over the other day, saw it running and he was like, "Puppy? I've read of some other users using wine too. You then needed to pick a screen resolution number that you wouldn't use and type in "915resolution 38 1024 600 16" in terminal.
It has Windows 98 since it was bought. For compiling on Puppy Linux you need to download devx_400.sfs (http://distro.ibiblio.org/pub/linux/distributions/puppylinux/sfs_modules-4/devx_400.sfs) and copy it to / of the partition. The pup100 file will be about 60M, and there's enough RAM for everything to load into ramdisk. http://sonoportal.net/error-cannot/error-cannot-load-boot-img.html If only someone would make an i18n version of dillo...

Thus, there is no tmpfs ramdisk intermediary. I wish each could simply update and replace the former but they do not. 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. An exciting alternative to the squashfs extensions is to use an existing installed Linux distro as the bottom layer: What the above diagram is intended to convey is that the bottom
might try to put it on my old 350mhz machine later. Is there a trick to installing it so I can boot it from the HD? If there is enough RAM, Puppy will copy usr_cram.fs into the ramdisk and then mount it on /usr. have a peek here UNDERDOGPART="`cat underdog.lnx`" UDMNTPT="`mount | grep "/dev/$UNDERDOGPART" | tr -s " " | cut -f 3 -d " "`" if [ "$UDMNTPT" = "" ];then UNDERDOGFS="`disktype /dev/$UNDERDOGPART | grep 'file system' |
wine? So far it works fine but I've run into a little snag which I hope you can help me with to do with the latest Opera beta. It's fast enuf for me and hey, I finally got my printer and scanner working. Puppy2 has retained only two Puppy-specific boot parameters, PMEDIA and PKEYS, greatly simplifying the procedure of setting up a bootable Puppy installation.
If you need to reset your password, click here. I really can't think of a better OS for that sort of situation. Note: 38 in this example is the screen resolution number chosen that could be over written. It is convenient for booting off a network to have just the two files vmlinuz and image.gz to worry about) To update to the latest version of Puppy, you just need
Do I just copy the iso file onto the USB memory stick and plug it into the computer before turning it on? It is also the only one that was easy to set up my WPA wireless on. I've set that to slow (122MHZ) and Debian Etch works very well all things considering. The technique rufwoof discussed in his thread would also work; but is more complicated as he had other objectives to obtain beyond just switching kernels.
If your PC does have more RAM, say 128M or more, puppy2 will automatically see that and will load the "pup_xxx.sfs" file into RAM. I will post the required information as soon as I can.
