linus1972,
I tried booting off USB Flash drive formatted Fat32 and also got "pup_442.sfs not found". Same when I renamed 'pup_442c_lighthouse.sfs to pup_442.sfs.

'/tmp/bootinit.log' said mounting /dev/sdb1 failed. Am trying to figure out why it couldn't mount the vfat partition.

vg1, yes this seems to be a bug affecting vfat. I studied the init script and can't find the reason.

Thanks vg1

it does work great off ext3 hd!

I simply extracted iso to folder
renamed that folder "LPup"
placed lpup folder in root of my Ubuntu drive
edited my menu.lst
like so

Code:
title            LighthousePup
root             (hd0,5)
kernel           /LPup/vmlinuz acpi=force root=/dev/ram0 pmedia=atahd initrd=/LPup/initrd.gz psubdir=LPup max_loop=40
initrd           /LPup/initrd.gz

and it works!

linus1972,

Glad it works. Although, I thought that psubdir code needed to be on the kernal line as is in my menu.lst. I learn something every day. Also, why is the extra initrd line needed? Is it because of the unneeded code "initrd=/LPup/initrd.gz? It probably should be: "initrd /LPup/initrd.gz psubdir=LPup max_loop=40" and delete the next line.

Code:
# Linux bootable partition config begins
title Lighthouse (on /dev/sdb6)
root (hd1,5)
kernel /Lighthouse/vmlinuz pmedia=idehd psubdir=Lighthouse
initrd /Lighthouse/initrd.gz
# Linux bootable partition config ends

OH

actually all that is on kernel line
just didn't paste over that way I guess

the initrd= is just a safety measure when booting first time
I usually don't do that.

so, why doesn't lighthouse run from fat32?

Same over here.

Could that please be fixed or told what boot parameters
I could put into syslinux.cfg
so that it will find the *.sfs file on my USB stick ?

Many thanks.

It's a bug, a temp setback
I'm sure it'll get fixed prettyy quick

I love lighthouse
I'm running in it now

I initially chose it because it can extract use .txz format
and cause of course, it's all about the Lord too:)

Nice work

Could it run from an USB stick
formated to Ext2 or Ext3 file system ?
How would I boot from this one ?

I really need to test , if this system will support
the WIFI WPA2 encryption with my RTL8180 based
PCMCIA WLAN card.
Many thanks in advance.

PostPosted: Mon 03 Aug 2009, 17:27    Post subject: Fix for LHP not booting from Fat32  

linus1972,
I got mine to boot off a Fat32 Flash drive by inserting these two lines at ~line 288 of init script:
Code:
modprobe nls_cp850     # TazOC need for vfat k2.6.28.5
modprobe nls_utf8      # TazOC need for vfat k2.6.28.5
Updated initrd.gz is attached.
[Update: works for Fat32 hard drive also. This will be in the next release.]

[Update 2: Included updated versions for LHP412f and LHP442c; be sure to d/l the correct file for your version of Lighthouse Pup.]

hartiberlin,
Should work on ext3 formatted USB Flash drive without the new initrd.gz in previous post. Just run the Puppy Universal Installer.

I don't know whether your WiFi will work. Maybe you could boot off a Lighthouse Pup CD first to test with your hardware.

Tazoc,
many thanks for fixing it this fast.

Now with the new initrd.gz
it works great from the Fat32 formatted USB stick.

I am just using this now to post this over here.

Youtube fullscreen and HD also works due toflash 10.
Very good.

Why dont you include Firefox 3.5.1instead of the old Seamonkey 1.1.7 ?

I heard also Seamonkey 2.x is already out, so why use an outdated browser ?

Well, unfortuately the Realtek RTL 8110 Lighthouse recognizes
for my PCMCIA WLAN card does not work with WPA2..
It finds the router and I can add my key, but then the WPA2
connection fails... Damn... Scanning...ascociate....failed...
Hmm, too bad...
I am really looking for a no fiddle pupplet distribution, that
works with my Realtek WLan card with WPA2.

Is there any out that works out of the box ?

ALready tried to patch browserlinux.com pupplet to
patch for 15 hours the last days and did not get the WPA2 to work...

Damn..

Will now try Fatdog2 beta..

Hi tazoc,
Thanks for the smp build always like pushing the hardware.

two requests for the next build
1.) JWM that resizes windows from the top. The main reason is when a window opens longer than the phyisical screen you can not resize the window easily.
2.) This for the next kernel build. Please enable NFS kernel mode. It is the best way of sharing drives between two puppies.

thanks again

DC

DC,
Thank you for trying Lighthouse Pup. I don't know how to fix JWM so it can resize from top of window. If you do, please explain/post a link. I usually use LXDE which can resize. (From JWM, Menu | Shutdown | Change window manager | LXDE.)

I don't know how to build a kernel or enable NFS kernel mode; I used the kernel 2.6.28.5 from Newyearspup. If you would like to help and can provide one with kernel modules, devx SFS and linux-patched SFS that would be great!

Hi tazoc,
Heres the link for the changes done to JWM
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=39162
The top down sizing was done back in march. Joe Wing(JWM) has also included Patriot's changes in the JWM builds.
I use a "jwm-456-i386-1.pet" to fix it. I don't remember where I got it from.

As to the kernel etc I'm in no any better postion than yourself to help. I'm still learning bash at the moment.

But the good news is BarryK has fixed his latest beta's to include the NFS kernel mode.

Thanks for the reply

DC

DC,
Thanks for the info on JWM. I found this pet:
jwm2-456-1.pet
I extracted just '/usr/bin/jwm' and overwrote the version in LHP. Now I have top resizing. When I get a chance I'll look over the entire package and also jwmconfig2-20090506.pet for possible inclusion.

Hi,

unfortunately your pupplet does not work with
my Realtek RTL8180 based PCMCIA WLAN card
with WPA2 encryption..

I tested some other pupplets to see, if they
contain the latest WPA2 compatible
WIFI drivers.


The pupplets I got the my Realtek RTL8180 based PCMCIA WLAN card
to work with WPA2 encryption are Fatdog2beta and Turbopup and Flexpup.

I hope you can use this info to modify Lighthouse
so the WLAN WPA2 encryption will also work with Lighthouse pup.

Maybe you just need to compile the latest MADWIFI drivers
into it ?

Hope this helps somehow.

Many thanks in advance.

Regards, Stefan.
