Puppy 216rc frugal install on vfat hda1, pup_save.3fs from 216beta

boots, says loading pup_216.sfs, then says "kernel panic, tried to kill init"

iso md5sum is good, md5sums of vmlinuz, initrd.gz, pup_216.sfs, zdrv file all match the files in the iso

grub:
title = Puppy2
rootnoverify (hd0,0)
kernel /vmlinuz root=/dev/ram0 pfix=clean PMEDIA=idehd
initrd /initrd.gz

i forgot that i very recently created a dir with a date name, to see what it would do

i'm not sure what it does with Puppy 216 beta, with 216 rc1 it causes a kernel panic

my pup_save.3fs file upgraded from 216 beta is still not unmounting cleanly, but it is causing less damage to the file system ... there are no orphan inodes, or other problems reported by a fsck ... it may be that the only problem is that the clean-unmount flag is not being set

i don't know whether a 2fs file is unmounted cleanly or not, fsck does not report any errors

sh-3.1# e2fsck -vf /mnt/home/pup_save.3fs
e2fsck 1.34 (25-Jul-2003)
PuppyLinux: recovering journal
Pass 1: Checking inodes, blocks, and sizes
Pass 2: Checking directory structure
Pass 3: Checking directory connectivity
Pass 4: Checking reference counts
Pass 5: Checking group summary information

PuppyLinux: ***** FILE SYSTEM WAS MODIFIED *****

a 3fs save file is not getting a file system checks when Puppy boots ... it should, to repair the system, if the save file is not unmounting cleanly

an e2fsck -p would normally be adequate, but if the file is not unmounting cleanly, an e2fsck -y -f would do the same thing anyway

in the rc.shutdown script i noticed a line with fusermount -z ... i think that will just print an error message saying that it must be fusermount -u -z

"kernel panic, tried to kill init"


I got a similar message yesterday (this was with Puppy 2.16 Beta)
told to pass the init variable to the kernel

The situation was this:
I had installed Puppy on to a hard drive with the universal installer in one machine with the idea of transferring the HD to one which could not boot from CD.

I was then attempting booting from the full HD install on a Compaq Pentium 133mz with 57MB memory (a 800MB partition and a 290MB swapdrive) that I found abandoned

Initially I had tried setting this system up with DeliLinux (seemed an ideal candidate - but that is another story)

I am not really sure where to go from here? I may wait for a cut down or bare bones version of 2.16 to be released, if anyone is intending that? Confused

Don't feel to bad, I cannot get Puppy to run off of a frugal HD install,
I found;
In grub's menu.lst the path to the kernal in /boot should be /boot/puppy216.
Once the correct path is set, I still get a kernel panic error and was told to pass the init variable to it..
I did so, and still get a kernal sync error.....
The only way I can get puppy 2.16 to run on the hd is to do a full install, to the hd
3.50G hda1 rfs
6.25G hda3 rfs
0.25G hda2 swap
And then to get my Nvidia card to run, I have to test the mode, and select the generic driver...
Next I have to force a config of sound, and ethernet...
All is found/configured from cd bootup using pfix=ram and 256m swap on hda2..
GO FIGURE...
I also CANNOT get the sfs installer to do OO it unpacks all into the / dir....

Not a happy camper.. Mad Exclamation

I haven't used the Universal Installer, just did it manually, and it works for me. This is what I have in menu.lst:

title Puppy frugal (on /dev/hda6)
rootnoverify (hd0,5)
kernel (hd0,5)/vmlinuz pmedia=idehd root=/dev/ram0
initrd (hd0,5)/initrd.gz

Boots the pup_save file okay. Others have reported it working also.

I'll test the Universal Installer next, but please be sure that you have the correct version -- if you have been downloading Dougal's test versions, you may not have. The correct version is at /initrd/pup_ro2/usr/sbin/puppyinstaller and can be copied up to /usr/sbin.

Problem with frugal install fixed, wrong grub menu entry,

See my bug posting.

I've done a quick hack of the Universal Installer to fix frugal and full hd installs. You gunzip it and place at /us/sbin. Attached.

I tried 216rc with grub4dos-0.4.3 frugal install and kernel boot parameter 'psubdir=bp216r1'. It works well. Openoffice-2.2.0.sfs file mounts without any problem.

This is my menu.lst file:

title Puppy-p2.16r1
rootnoverify (hd0,0)
kernel /bp216r1/vmlinuz root=/dev/ram0 PMEDIA=idehd psubdir=bp216r1
initrd /bp216r1/initrd.gz
boot

Barry,
Would it be possible to include 'psubdir' directory to search path for all Puppy files, like pup_216.sfs, pup_save.2fs, pupswap.swp and zdrv_216.sfs?

This would be very convenient for have many versions of Puppy each in its own directory and start them from grub menu like:

title Puppy-p2.16r1
rootnoverify (hd0,0)
kernel /bp216r1/vmlinuz root=/dev/ram0 PMEDIA=idehd psubdir=bp216r1
initrd /bp216r1/initrd.gz
boot

title Puppy-p2.16r2
rootnoverify (hd0,0)
kernel /bp216r2/vmlinuz root=/dev/ram0 PMEDIA=idehd psubdir=bp216r2
initrd /bp216r2/initrd.gz
boot

The Universal Installer did not recognise my USB Hard drive when I chose to install to "Removable USB hard drive". I've hacked it some more. I tested frugal install to a ext2 first partition on it, works fine now.

Barry, I don't think you used the my latest update of the installer -- the USB HD problem was solved after people sent me the results of the HW-test dotpup and I found that removable HDs are actually recognized as non-removable.

Why have you added the grub-style device names in the grub entries (initrd hd(0,0)/boot/initrd.gz)? it has been working fine for me all this time without them (initrd /boot/initrd.gz).

Confused

Oh gosh
I installed to IDE HD using Barrys second hack (did not see yours in time Dougal sorry)

and rather than the previous kernel panic
Grub booted up (Nice) and I am posting from Puppy on that HD

I am now gonna put the HD in the Compaq

So the Universal Installer is working up to that point (putting Puppy on a HD)

Thanks guys Smile

Very Happy posting this from the olde Compaq - success!

If I can do it - a fish can do it
The Compaq has an ethernet connection, rather nice for such an old computer and it ran slowly but acceptably

Could not get a decent resolution - leave that for another day Smile
