PostPosted: Sun 19 Jul 2009, 12:44    Post subject:  Puppy Video Tutorials
Subject description: After an ideo by ttuuxxx ;)
 

Hey guys

In this thread, ttuuxxx suggested to make video tutorials for puppy. For instance a video telling how to install puppy on hd or usb, or how to setup a printer in puppy, or how to do ... with puppy (Fill in for yourself Wink)

I'm thinking about making these videos, but i'd like to find some people who can help me, cos when i'm going to make all those vids by myself, it'll take ages xD

So who wants to help me? When i know that, we can decide where all the vids are going to be about.

@the site admins: would be nice if those tutorial vids got an own place on the website, can someone give me some space or something like that?

What I would really like in a video is my Windows clean out.

Unremovable files and viruses etc, purged with Puppy.
With mounting a drive, opening up Rox file manager twice,
and copying files to and from a USB or USB hard drive.

Get the MS folk onside to rescue their systems.

Next the move all Windows to a folder to re-install XP,
with no format, no extra hard drive approach.

This would be extremely handy for Whirlpool forum posts.

Sure the majority may stay with Windows, but if we only get
a few to boot Puppy occasionally...that's OK.

Booting the screen managers, Xorg way and Xvesa way.
And if one doesn't work for the odd laptop etc, hey! no probs
use this way instead.
With a xwin and xorgwizard....stuck at the command line
tutorial as well.

""""""""""""
I suppose first up really should be....
downloading and burning the Puppy ISO.
Because as a post suggested the other day,
they couldn't find where they downloaded the file in
Windows to.....which was their Desktop.
Personally I always set up Windows with a folder

C:\Downloads and direct the browser to save it there.
Then you need to show tthem Burn CDCC or a
similar simple program.

Also,,,lower speed burns for really old comps.

http://www.terabyteunlimited.com/downloads-free-software.htm

""""""""""""

Plus a change booting order in bios.
As well as if Puppy won't boot...eg some Toshibas,
a different boot parameter.

" default puppy acpi=strict
acpi=noirq
pci=biosirq
pci=nosort
irqpoll routeirq
display boot.msg
prompt 1
label puppy
kernel vmlinuz
append root=/dev/ram0 initrd=initrd.gz loglevel=3 PMEDIA=idecd
timeout 50

puppy pnpbios=off

On an Acer TravelMate 603 laptop it fails at "Loading the pup_220.sfs" stage with "Kernel panic - not syncing: Attempted to kill init!". (I have Puppy 2.14 installed and working fine on this machine although I had to use "puppy pnpbios=off" to avoid a kernel panic early in the boot process.)

Sony Laptops……….special command

Thanks, you are a GEM ! That did it.

puppy ide1=0x180,0x386 nopcmcia acpi=off

:::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::
apci=on /=off =/force

Something came to mind as I read in the post about difficulties with my build of Safepup pup_2.13.sfs. I also encountered a kernel panic when adapting the build for a Thinkpad 700x and found I had to toggle apci. Raffy's original comes with apci=force.

I suggest trying apci=on /=off =/force to see if any of those work.

////////////////////////
On the bootup screen I used the bootcode

puppy pnpbios=off'

cause ALSA obviously had some trouble with this (it said something like that in the 'dmesg' I looked in when it didn't work)
After bootup I set up the soundcard manually using modprobe in the console. After fiddling around with the parameters, my final setup looks like this:
'modprobe snd_es18xx isapnp=0 port=0x220 mpu_port=0x330 dma1=1 dma2=1 irq=5 fm_port=0x388'

Sound plays rather well, I can't use puppy sound mixer though (yet?), but alsamixer works OK and since I have buttons for volume on my laptop I don't even know if the hard drive is good.

On older computers, but no laptops, I turn of the DMA if possible and the APM (advanced power management) in the BIOS setup program.

Then on the Linux command line add the following parameters:

ide=nodma apm=off acpi=off

When GRUB is installed you can add these as needed to your kernel line.

From the puppy boot disk you can experiment like this:

puppy ide=nodma

if it still fails then add the others:

puppy ide=nodma apm=off acpi=off

and of course another options you are using.I don't much care.

/////////////////////////////////////
When in doubt, keep Googling. ;-) I am posting this via Puppy and SeaMonkey!

http://justin.madirish.net/node/31

As this article says, in the BIOS I had to change to SATA mode from IDE to AHCI. Then at the boot prompt I typed "puppy all-generic-ide pci=nommconf" and Puppy was happy! In spite of what the article said, I had no trouble booting back into WinXP (so my wife can use the computer :-P ).

I'm running puppy 4.1.2 on a 12 year old laptop with a p1 150MHz and 80MB RAM and it freezes at boot inless I use the options:

puppy pnpbios=off acpi=off.

Maybe that combination might work with your system?

The cheat frugal approach, so as newbies can't stuff up their
hard drive testing out Puppy.

" Different Puppy versions = different main files.

Puppy 3 Series :

pup_301.sfs

zdrv_301.sfs

""""""""""
Puppy 4 Seriesl:

pup_398.sfs

zdrv_398.sfs

""""""""""""
Puppy 4.1. = pup_410.sfs

Puppy 4.1.1 = pup_411.sfs "

http://forums.whirlpool.net.au/forum-replies-archive.cfm/1091231.html


" Boot from the CD.

Copy the pup_xxx.sfs and zdrv_xxx.sfs to your hard drive and boot.

The 2 files must be renamed to lower case if copied in Windows.
Different Puppies...different names where xxx is substituted.

With NTFS drives make sure Windows shuts down properly.
Otherwise Puppy will not see your 2 main files or the
swap and save files that it makes.

If you run Fat32 partitions this is not the case.
It's like a safety issue (simply expressed) that if XP does not
shut down properly...Puppy recognises this and does not
screw around with your files.

Do NOT partition your disk.
If you have another partition put the files there...no problem.
It will save you heartache.
I run Puppies all the time but still boot into XP.
Safer for you and simpler.
Still fast...I run Puppy on low to high end computers. "

" Installing PuppyLinux to an IDE Hard Drive:richard.a:

Showing the stages would be good.

" I have installed puppy of several versions on a range of older laptops and desktops.

While likely to have nothing to do with providing a CD choice as well, I believe that the key to your HDD install with GRUB problem may well be avoiding using the puppy installer routine - which I've not had any problems with except the fact that it asks many questions. I've been told that this is in order to keep the size of the ISO small as possible, and
very likely that is true.

I've created a step-by-step tutorial profusely illustrated with screenshots. You can find this at

http://micro-hard.homelinux.net/puppy/installing-puppy/

Try the install type 1 (instead of the regular install type 2)"

And if you achieved making these videos, I suggest that John Murga
put an easy Video Grouping so that newbies can easily find your info.
