MoebusNet, puppy pfix=ram means that Lucid Puppy will load "clean" without loading any lupusave file that might be present. vmlinuz and lupu-528.sfs will load to load and start Puppy, just no lupusave file so it will be like a first boot.

I am not sure about fat16. I have only tested a usb drive with fat32.

For future reference, there is one oddity I noticed about using Bootflash. I used it on a usb drive that was formatted for Linux ext4 and I got a boot error, even though it said it was (re) formatting the drive. I then used Gparted to delete the partition on the usb drive, leaving it unformatted. After that, Bootflash worked to create a bootable usb drive. AFAIK Bootflash will format fat32.

I used the Prename, batch file renamer to rename a bunch of files.
After booting with the devx.sfs Prename stopped working.
This is because the devx contains a perl script named prename in /usr/bin, overriding prename in /usr/local/bin.

I solved the problem by entering the full path in the .desktop file for Prename.

Lupu 5.28 frugal install to 4 Gb USB thumb drive with pupsave file using fat16.

On next boot, I get the old 'KERNEL PANIC' about half way through files loading and am stuck there.

Tryed another download just to be sure... same 'KERNEL PANIC'

sszindian, Usually a kernel panic at that stage is because of a bad read of the CD. Did you by any chance have the first CD copy the lupu-528.sfs to the HDD when you shut down and created the save file? If so, please delete it and boot from the new CD you downloaded. It wouldn't hurt to check the md5sum.

You might also try puppy pfix=ram, just in case.

Subject description: Lost configuration on 2nd boot

I can confirm the lost configuration on the second boot.

Manual frugal install to hd without changing the default savefile name on the first shutdown.

It is a standard AMD integrated MB with Realtek audio and wired ethernet.

The signs on the second boot are:

it says copying to RAM

It does not go Woof Woof during boot up

Ethernet is not working

The devx sfs that I put in the bootmanager is not loaded


Having enabled the ethernet and installed the ATI display driver pet and Opera 11.50 from the deb, it now works properly, except...

It still does not go Woof Woof, but the audio does work.

528: First run of program... no problem, all boots and it appears everything works well. (booting from live CD)

On shutdown, create a savefile to HDD.

On next boot, I get the old 'KERNEL PANIC' about half way through files loading and am stuck there.

Tryed another download just to be sure... same 'KERNEL PANIC'

Have not had the Kernel Panic msg since way way back in the early development of 5xx.

Well, you say its not an issue with 5.2.8, and I say it seems to be problem with all Puppy including 5.2.8 so thats why I tell the publisher of 5.2.8 that it would be nice if it were fixed in his version:)

Let green_dome know about your Wine preferences. IMHO, he has done an outstanding job and I am sure he will consider what you say.

I have broadcom wl.ko and also "forgets" my settings on reboot. I just keep re-entering them on subsequent reboots and finally would stick.

Broadcom should go to tempestuous's thread.

He also explained the Broadcom situation in the development thread for 5.2.7-but that will be harder to find.

If so, that is definitely not recommended. After installing frisbee should use frisbee exclusively. Of course can uninstall to go back to sns. That is why Frisbee is an install rather than included--they don't coexist well, as I understand it from jemimah, the creator of frisbee.

Command fails. "No such device". I should have, in my original post, included the error message that the Network Wizard throws up:

"failed to raise interface wlan0
failed command was: ifconfig wlan0 up
error returned was:
ifconfig: SIOCSIFFLAGS: Protocol error"

Worked fine on first boot. Wireless works fine with the OSes installed on this notebook (Windows, Mint, Fedora). I will test this USB install later this eve with a different notebook. Same wireless nic on that one, though (b43).


vancardboardbox, thanks for showing the messages, now looks like what have seen when mixing usage of frisbee and sns or connection wizard. True?

if so, i would rename your savefile and start fresh with pfix=ram if can remember the steps to your initial successful connection would write them down for future reference. often frisbee will not suffice to acquire wifi connection but once the connection is made and sns or cw scripts fail and time out then simply rebooting and then choose frisbee it can read sns or cw scripts then rewrites them while making your connection which doesn't time out.

to tell for sure need that tar ball report which when sns fails it offers that report.

Also it would be nice if wine were fully integrated in the menu, so that "Wine Programs" were there too. Right now its nowhere to be found after installing Wine and here I mean all versions up to the newest 1.3.9.xxxx.
From 3.xx on I use wine when it still was 0.9.x
Now I am at 1.3.23 and still never had a problem to find wine in the menu's of any puppy included the latest ones.
green_dome is the person who compiles wine and his latest is 1.3.25.
Winehq has announced 1.3.26, so green_dome will shortly announce it.

The Wine thread of green_dome can be easily found by searching on his name with the puppy search link in my thread.

Now for your problem, it is better to post it the users forum, as I don't think it's a lucid 5.2.8 issue.


Actually I were not kidden or mistaken about the wine, one of the users here compilled it to 1.3.9.

http://www.wuala.com/puppylinux/version2013/wine-1.3.9_v1/

and 1.3.9 has actually been available since december 2010

http://www.winehq.org/news/2010121001

My problem, as described with wine is that the "Wine Programs" menu entry never show up in Puppy. "Wine Programs" is where all your installed programs will be listed, I cant see why that has been left out. Another thing missing from the menu is "Explore Drive C:".

Well, you say its not an issue with 5.2.8, and I say it seems to be problem with all Puppy including 5.2.8 so thats why I tell the publisher of 5.2.8 that it would be nice if it were fixed in his version:)


I'm not a programmer, but I can immagine the enormous effort someone has put into it when posting his or hers Puppy version. And I can appreciate it, but if we don't tell the problems then they will not get fixed.

With kind regards

You probably have more experience then I have.
So good luck with your request.

^Its not merely forgetting my wireless settings. Puppy finds no WLAN interface after the second post-install boot, thus no wireless connectivity is possible at all.

Reloading the module does not fix, and the firmware appears fine in /lib/firmware/b43.

USB flash install, btw.


vancardboardbox USB install can make a difference and I have little usb experience. mine is frugal manual to hdd.

What has helped me in the past is checking for competing drivers.

SNS will show which driver(s) currently loaded as will menu>system>boot manager. If found a competing driver can blacklist it with the boot manager.

To confirm a functional wifi network interface. Try this command -
Code:
ifconfig -a


To manually wake up wlan try this-
Code:
ifconfig wlan(0) or (1) up

if shows wifi network then can configure it as before.

Here is a thread on manual wifi configuration.
