Hello,
My question doesn't concern directly Grub4DosConfig but Grub4Dos users who perhaps experienced this problem and know how to solve it: the "halt" command doesn't work at all. I can reboot without any problem but not shutdown my computer using this "halt" command from my USB flash drive menu.lst entry...

Thank you for you attention.

Cordialement.

There is already:

http://distro.ibiblio.org/puppylinux/pet_packages-noarch/grub4dos-0.4.4.v1.9.3.pet dated 11-jun-2018

which is what is included in woof-ce builds....

Some sort of rationalisation is required....

Here is an issue that needs to be known by all and maybe get fixed in Grub4dos Config.

Grub4DOS Error 13, wee 13> due to 64-bit Ext4
http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=111376
This topic has some info on how to work around the problem.

If nothing else, put a warning in Grub4dos config about the issue with Linux ext4 64bit format.

I have modified grub4dosconfig to detect frugal installations of EasyOS. There was also a problem with a frugal installation of Racy Puppy not getting detected:

http://bkhome.org/news/201812/grub4dos-pet-for-easyos.html

I looked into that "64bit ext4" problem, did not come up with a solution. However, Gparted creates 32bit ext4 filesystems, thus avoiding the problem.

Someone more familiar with the grub4dosconfig script code could improve on my hacks. The main thing with EasyOS is that the files are 'vmlinuz', 'easy.sfs' and 'initrd', no versioning in the sfs filename.

Also, I noticed that Puppy frugal installations are only searched for one- or two-deep, whereas EasyOS has no limit. For example, sda1/frugal/amd64/easy/0.9.9 is quite valid.

...Easy doesn't search for the installation at bootup, as the install path is inside 'initrd', see explanation here:

http://bkhome.org/news/201811/automatic-fixing-of-bootspecs-for-frugal-install.html

...which means, to determine the release version, you would have to open up 'initrd', however, it is usual to have the version info in the install path, for example sda1/easy/0.9.9
Or, mount easy.sfs and read the etc/DISTRO_SPECS file.

Another thing, Easy does not recognise any of those "pfix=..." parameters. They are not needed. There is a "qfix=..." which can accept "nox", "fsck", "bak" or "new", or a combination comma-delimited.

nox: do not start X
fsck: filesystem check of the working-partition.
bak: rollback to last snapshot.
new: bootup as a pristine first-boot.

...the last one is a radical rollback.

Note also, 'initrd' is a cpio archive, not compressed.
There are some notes how to open up a cpio archive here:

http://bkhome.org/easy/easy-frugal-installation.html

...note, that webpage refers to 'initrd.q', but have renamed that to just 'initrd' in the upcoming release (which will be 0.9.10).

EasyOS 0.9.10 has been released, with Grub4Dos in it:

http://bkhome.org/news/201812/easyos-version-0910-released.html

And there is a new tutorial that explains how to use Grub4Dos:
