otropogo,

From first post in topic:
Quote:
Notes: 1) If you have previously used the Lucid 5.2.8 Live CD, it may have copied the lupu_528.sfs file to your hard drive. When the new CD boots it will use that lupu_528.sfs without telling you, so you need to delete it from your drive, or rename it, before you boot the new CD. This will happen even if the lupu_528.sfs is in a directory. 2) If you use a frugal install,. a simple trick is to download the ISO, click it to open it, and copy the lupu_528.sfs into the directory that holds the frugal install, replacing the old one.



I do not think the splash screen got changed to reflect the different versions of Lucid528.

Booting from live CD:
If you have a previous version of lupu_528.sfs on computer it probably is being seen by boot process and being used.
Normally the name of the sfs file is different, so this is not an issue between different versions of Puppy. The different versions of Lucid 528 use the same name for the sfs file.
The different versions of Lucid 528 are only different by what additional programs may or may not be in them.
The idea was to pick the one that has the features you want and just use that one. All of them are the complete Lucid 528.

If you had different versions of Lucid 528, as frugal installs on the hard drive, with each one in a differently named directory.
The boot menu will have entry for each one.
You should be able to boot each specific version, because the boot process will look for a specific named directory, for the needed files, and not look any other place.

Hi,

This version of puppy has worked well for me for many months.

Yesterday I tried to use it to boot a My Passport USB3 drive.

No luck, after loading the drivers it could not find lupu_528.sfs file.

However if I plug the drive into a USB2 port it works OK.

Can we modify initrd.gz to include a USB3 driver?

Regards Tony.

I just booted lupupluslibre 528.005-2 from LiveCD for the first time, and am confused, as I have been since 5.2.8 has started proliferating versions.

The splash screen is, to my eyes at least, indistinguishable from earlier versions of lupuplus or even lupu5.2.8.

When shutting down after the first boot, I'm no longer asked whether I want to copy the sfs file to the hard drive, so when I boot the second time, I have no idea which sfs file is active. In fact, I don't know which one booted on the first run, since the loader gives no indication. I haven't known since upgrading to lupuplus some time ago, but my understanding (please correct me, if it's wrong) has been that when the loader runs, it looks on the hard drives first for the lupu_528.sfs file. And it boots with the first one it finds. If not, what would be the point of copying the sfs file to the hard drive?

Any clarification would be welcome.

And yes, I did boot with an existing 2fs file, as I don't really want to reconfigure every application I've got. But maybe I should have renamed all of the lupu_528.sfs files on the hard drive before booting the latest version? Would I have gotten the prompt to save the file to the hard drive, or is that something that only happens subsequent to the invitation to create a 2fs file?

Hi Larry,

Lupu 528 was the first puppy I used and is the first one I remastered on.

Well miss you here. Family is very important!!! May you and your family be blessed. Well keep you all in prayer.

There's no way to repay you for what you've already done. Thank you doesn't really cover it.

But thank you is all I can say. I don't know if you have thought about it, but some of the work you and your team did on Lucid Puppy had a positive effect on the Puppies which have followed. You raised the bar,

And you made it possible to use Puppy all the time. I rarely use anything else. Even though I'm using Slacko right now, Lucid was the first Puppy I was able to use exclusively and preferentially for more than just surfing the Web and playing music...

Remember to keep yourself healthy and as much as possible rested. See if you can arrange a little 'me time' so you don't burn out. Home hospice may become a solution for getting away for a few hours...in future sometime.

We'll keep you in prayer. God bless.

Life goes on with other priorities. Best wishes to you, to your wife and family. Remember to keep the optimistic attitude whatever life throws. I hope that your wife gets the best possible treatment.

I got the inspiration to the woof building through Lucid Puppies and they have given me hundreds of hours meaningful building and hobby also. Thank you of everything you have done. You have inspired us several years with your great work and coordinating skills.

Hi Larry,

Let's all hope that some of these absurd issues around healthcare finally get properly addressed here in the US; they are well overdue. Meanwhile, best of luck to you.

Sure hope things works out for your family Playdayz.

Very sorry to hear this.

I hope that this can a motivation for others to now show that the path you walked with Lucid can be kept up by others.

Best of luck with the new challenges and hope they will work out so you get time to have some "Puppy Playdayz" again...

Larry, thanks for all you have done. You will be missed but it's far more important to spend time with your wife than with us. I understand your pain and frustration, my brother has the same condition.

Good luck and please pass on my regards and best wishes to your wife and family.

Have faith, lots of good work is being done in this area of medicine.

Hi Larry - I do hope your wife sees some improvement in her condition. My sister-in-law has the same thing and swears by sun exposure and minimalist diet as well as all the medical stuff as a way of keeping on top of it as much as possible.

Wishing you all the best - and thanks for what you've achieved. It's amazing.
