Thats what I get as well, so looks good.
Have you tried booting the disk in another machine?
I don’t have much time this morning, but will dig
into this then I get home.

Do you have an external drive you could burn a disk with?
Or perhaps an usb stick to copy the .iso to and burn with another
computer?
Getting a good burn would tell us your drive is not
burning/detecting correctly.
I have three computers that will make an MultiPup dvd-r disk but not
read them?
They will work on “some” other computers like with the multi session
issue I have run into.
Also have run in to some laptops that act the same way.
Think I have heard them described as having half drives or something to that effect.
Check back later.
Good Luck!

Lookinglass360, did as you suggested and d/l a new copy of Multipup3.3 -- without success. Perhaps you can tell something from my grub menu. Is this similar to what you get ?

That is only part of the picture,

What do the contents of each of the menu.lst files (indicated in red) look like Question

I built a quick ISO (using Multipup3.3) with the same ISO's as yourself,
here is what i have in my menu.lst files,
and a quick test in VirtualBox verified things as working OK (using the Run in ram options)

CatDude, thanks for joining with Lookinglass360 in an effort to help me.

Each inside folder menu.lst matches each one that you posted.

I am posting this from a newly burned Lupu 528-004, so it seems my hardware is not fault.

I appreciate both of you for your assistance and hope someone can come up with a solution that will work for me.

Very Happy Hello,
Sorry, have not been around much as of late..
By the message you posted, it looks like the kernel loads, but not the initrd..
Do the folders on the disk have all their proper contents, IE vmlinuz/initrd.gz/pup.xxx.sfs??
You might try
Quote:
pfix=irqpoll
at the boot prompt..

Puppyluvr,

Here is the line you gave me: vmlinuz/initrd.gz/pup.xxx.sfs??
Here is what I have initrd (cd)/slacko-5.3.2.1-SCSI/initrd.gz

Here is an example of one of my menu listings:

title slacko-5.3.2.1-SCSI Use Savefile
root (cd)
kernel (cd)/slacko-5.3.2.1-SCSI/vmlinuz root=/dev/ram0

Hello pistoi0

I think puppyluvr was asking you to check the contents of each of the subdirectories on the disc (CD/DVD)

If you still have a copy of your custom ISO image on the hard drive,
simply click on it, then in the window that opens up,
open a console/terminal and enter the following command:
Code:
ls -1R

that's a lowercase ell followed by an s, then -1R (that is a number one)

Or you could mount the disc and do the same (open console/terminal and run the command)

You should get something similar to this:
Code:
# ls -1R
.:
boot
boot.catalog
index
logo.16
lupu-528.004
slacko-5.3.2.1-SCSI
squeeze-5.X.13.6-SCSI

./boot:
grub

./boot/grub:
menu.lst
Multipup
stage2_eltorito

./lupu-528.004:

help2.msg

initrd.gz
isolinux.bin
isolinux.cfg
logo.16
lupu_528.sfs
menu.lst
vmlinuz

./slacko-5.3.2.1-SCSI:
boot.cat
boot.msg
help2.msg
help.msg
initrd.gz
isolinux.bin
isolinux.cfg
logo.16
menu.lst

README.HTM
vmlinuz

./squeeze-5.X.13.6-SCSI:

Hi pistoi0
Was that taken from the MultiPup . iso file you created or the burned
disk?
I have looked through all my coasters and can not find any thing useful.
I started using rw disks so all pre ver. 3.3 got blanked and recycled and I
have just not had any problems that produced that grub screen or error
in this version.
Kinda hard to learn to fix something that generally Just works!

At any rate you have real help now! I will keep lookin!

I have once again learned something I did not know, if this can be solved
all the better!

Thanks puppyluvr + CatDude

Hello pistoi0

Please don't take this as an accusation or anything,
but looking at the output from the ls command that you posted,
i have to ask one question.

Did you manually edit things when building your multipup ISO Question
(come on, don't be shy Wink Wink )

The reason i ask is this:

isolinux.cfg
logo.16
menu.lst
puppy_luki_012.sfs
vmlinuz
zdrv_luki_012.sfs

The MultiPup CD/DVD Creator could not possibly have produced such a bizarre combination,
ie: a slacko-5.3.2.1-SCSI subdirectory containing the contents of what appears to be Saluki. Confused


There is also a discrepancy here:

puppy_squeeze_5.X.13.5.sfs

Plus there is no mention of a vmlinuz either.

At what point during booting the CD are you getting this Question

CatDude, you flatter me! Except for assigning absolute linking, I did nothing more than click the gui buttons. As for the appearance of the grub prompt and message, that comes up immediately when attempting to load the disc. In other words, that is all that I get, nothing else.

Here is an attempt to make a one-pup .iso using Lupu with no .pets or .sfs and all I get on the screen is the grub prompt and message:

lupu-528.004

./boot:
grub

./boot/grub:
menu.lst
Multipup
stage2_eltorito

./lupu-528.004:
boot.cat
boot.msg

help.msg
initrd.gz
isolinux.bin
isolinux.cfg

Thank you for the PM. I will gladly try the experiment you suggest.

Very Happy Hello,,
pistoi0,
I am looking at your error, and although I cannot reproduce it, will try to solve it.. However...
Catdude, in looking at your error has uncovered another, more tangible problem concerning "Slacko"..
I believe the problem is related to "filemnt" mounting the ISO`s 'read only'...
This could be an issue related to unionfs, IDK...
pistoi0, i may have missed it, but what Puppy are you building the MultiPup ISO on???...
Maybe all related... Slacko may be the clue....
Tomorrow, with a clearer head.... Wink

Puppyluvr

Don't know if I mentioned it. Started out with a Lucid 528, then tried Exprimo 5x13. I have tried it straight from a live DVD as well as from frugals. The frugals and everything else are on a 32 gig SDHC in a sata adapter. The drive has two partitions. SDA1 is a FAT 32 and SDA2 is an ext 3 used by MuliPup. Also, CatDude has given me something to try as he mentioned above, and I will get to that assignment tomorrow, I hope.

MultiPup works quite well here in Lucid but I have to tweak it in Saluki. It does not like Thunar.

Puppyluvr and Smokey01 et al

I have been using Lucid 528-004, and I am in the midst of running yet another experiment under CatDude's tutelage. I hope to complete that phase, soon. So far, I am suspecting a hardware challenge. Hope to have more information for all by the end of the weekend.
