Hi Fred.

Quote:
Wow ! you made it all German, nice job !

Thanks, at least the menu's categories (02-modifications-BionicDog.squashfs, 5MB) and the programs (99-langpack-BionicDog.squashfs, 2MB, DE only)

Re the 'issue':

In reading '/etc/xdg/menus/applications-merged' I had overseen the -merged part, so I missed the main hint... Embarassed

However, it works by now. Thanks!

Rainer

Hello,

Would it be possible to create Pet2debconvert to Bionicdog 64 bits?

I wanted to convert Pmusic, but Pet2debconvert existe only in the extras for 32 bit.

Thanks,

José Pinto

Hi,

I used apt2sfs to create a SFS of Quiterss, after adding the third party repo that contains Quiterss version 0.18.12.
However, apt2sfs only pulled version 0.18.8 from Bionic main repo and not the version from the third party repo.
Is this by design?

Thanks,

José Pinto

I see it as right-click option also in the 64-bit version, see pic below.
(btw, don't expect to much from it, may work for simple programs, but a complicated program such as Pmusic may not work as expected)

Not sure, I'll try to investigate in the next days, did you add a PPA and Is it listed in /etc/apt/sources.list.d ?

HI Fred,

I see pet2debconvert as right-click option in other pets but not on Pmusic, wich means the problem must be with this pet.

Regarding apt2sfs, i did add this PPA:
ppa:quiterss/quiterss

and it is listed in /etc/apt/sources.list.d

Thanks for the prompt answer,

José Pinto

PostPosted: Wed 19 Sep 2018, 20:48    Post subject: bionicdog x86 cannot boot in bios  

Hi, i am a bionicdog user and constantly switch desktop at my workstation. All desktop had no issues booting Bionicdog from my frugally installed USB, until recently a desktop refused to boot. After many attempt i got the following messages that i attached bellow, saying "Porteus data not found".
Can anyone let me know what is the cause for this problem? I have been searching this issue in the forum but not much related topics were found.
Thanks in advance.

Could be you've lost/deleted the .sgn file that the boot process looks for (IIRC resides in the same folder as your main system sfs (or vmlinuz, initrd ???)).

It's just a file IIRC, nothing special inside it, just has to exist, so if you have lost/deleted it just try recreating another file - looks like in your case something like echo > /live/bionic-486.sgn ... or wherever you main sfs's are.

Thanks for the reply, is that possible? Because I had no problems booting in other desktops.
This desktop can boot into windows like usual too.

I had exactly the same error when trying to boot StretchDog64 from USB.
Amazingly, it was on the same USB where the properly working BionicDog64 was, with same bios4dos settings (using same partition uuid, with only exeption being bionic pointing to /casper while stretch to /live folder)

The message is about .sgn file, but it really means that the data is not found, i.e. casper folder.
There are more reports that on one computer it boots fine and on another not. (probably drive not detected)
Since I can't reproduce it, I don't know how to solve, sorry.

Fred

Maybe try from terminal then, e.g.:
Code:
pet2deb-convert /path/to/pmusic.pet

Yes, I see now, apt2sfs makes use of the regular sources.list only, should be fixed now in newer version 1.1.3, install:
Code:
apt-get update
apt-get install apt2sfs    # installs v1.1.3

Thanks everyone for the feedbacks and efforts.

I tried to burn BionicDog iso to another pendrive, and live boot from it. That pc successfully boot into BionicDog without any problems. I double checked using Damn Small Linux, Xenial Pup, etc.. All can boot from the live usb without problems.

Hence, the conclusion is: Frugally installed BionicDog cannot boot from this pc. The cause is yet to find out.

Earlier Fred modified a script from Fatdog64 to assist me auto mounting USB disks in BionicDog.
http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=113210&start=520
This has been working well.

But recently I need to use it on laptop that login as non-root user and found out that it does not work for non-root user (both BionicDog & StretchDog).

Code:
fatdog-drive-icon-mount-helper.sh: line 48: exec: gtksu: not found

line 48 code
[ $(id -u) -ne 0 ] && exec gtksu "Mounting ${1##*/}" $0 "$@"


Any way I can modify the script to make it work?
Thanks

@dcung, run with sudo, e.g.

Code:
sudo fatdog-drive-icon-mount-helper.sh /dev/sdb1 /mnt/sdb1


EDIT: Or gsu (graphical sudo) may suit your needs better.
Code:
gsu fatdog-drive-icon-mount-helper.sh /dev/sdb1 /mnt/sdb1

Probably this will help?

Include this code
Code:
# Who am I?
[ "`whoami`" != "root" ] && exec sudo -A ${0} ${@}

on top of the script.
