I was going to suggest that too, but the download link on the picopup page is broken. dotpups.de in general seems problematic.

MU has said Firefox is a problem with his server and suggests wget -c to download.

Edit: Link to MicroMuppy002.iso


http://www.puppyfiles.ca/puppyisos/MicroMuppy002.iso

But I see picopup is what is needed...I can't find either.

Hi Mark,

thanks a lot for the link. I got picopup there Smile
but there is no iso. Waht I get after uncompressing the zip file are

image.gz
ldlinux.sys
syslinux.cfg
vmlinuz

To give it a test I like to make a 10MB partition in my HDD called /pico and create an entry in menu.lst for picopup. will it be OK ? I think the menu.lst shoul have the following entries

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Title Picopup

# The partition where /picopup exists
root (hd0,2)

kernel /picopup/vmlinuz root=/dev/hda3 ro
boot
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

is it OK ?
thanks

you also must add a line for initrd.gz to grub.
It includes the whole Puppy.
You might use the Micromuppy-iso to see how it can be used, as micromuppy just is picopup with additional xvesa and jwm.

Yes, I forgot to add image.gz. But is it the whole puppy or simply the ram disk image for device drivers, as usual in case of other distro ? what is the utility of

ldlinux.sys
syslinux.cfg ?

thanks Mark for all your suggestions.

picopup is based on puppy1.
that had vmlinuz, image.gz and pup_10x.sfs

It also had the option to put everything from pup_10x.sfs in image.gz.

This is what picopup did.
Picopup cannot save files, apart from that it is a full usable comandline Puppy.

Micromuppy also cannot save, it was intended e.g. for internet-cafes, where you power off the computer, and don't want to have any files left on it in the end of the day (P*rn, malware, personal passwords).

So you could use it as "kiosk" application, for public terminals and such. But not as a full desktop-system for the normal user.

The two other files in picopup are used to boot Puppy from win98 if I remember well.
I did not create picopup myself, and never needed them.

I wanted to see where Picopup was, and so update its wiki page, but I get a 403 error from pkagfiles.net.

In fact that (and other error pages) seems to be all I get that from all Servage-hosted Puppy-related sites for the last few weeks... have I been banned???

Re: pkagfiles
You may be caught in a banned IP address block. PM me your IP address & I'll look into it.

@klu9
if you try to meta-link to my server with pakgfiles... you may run into my being banned from pakgfiles..still have no idea why but puppylinux.ca is banned from Previously known as Guest and his server.

but .ca will survive anyway.

Eric
