Maybe ttuuxxx has done some hacking to his initrd file in 2.14X or perhaps he has some optimized code in his bootconfigurations.
If you want to find out, I suggest asking him. I guess I cannot help you with the long delay. Please let the rest of us know if you find out, or better yet, let Barry know so that he can upload a fix to woof (if applicable).

(This was apropos of my trying SolidPup on my 1998 ASUS P5A computer)

I'm now back to 214X via MBR.

But the question of why (later?) kernels have the booting delay remains.

I tried 214X Top 10 as well.
I did a frugal install of it.
The problem I face is, it never stays with other puppies.
Always 214X finds pup save file of other puppies and forcibly uses them.

How to tame 214X puppy?

Any suggestions how to use it nicely?

Sincerely,
Srinivas Nayak

Thanks, I've seen this. Trouble is, you have to do this every time you boot up unto 2.14X after using one of these other Pup savefiles, and then reverse it again to use another Pup's savefile, and it all quickly gets tedious IMO. There has to be a better solution than this.

Just my 2c here.

AFAIK 214X is the only puppy to exhibit this behaviour

Others discriminate between slacko/lupu etc, even discriminating between variants and derivatives of lupu, AFAIK

ttuuxxx
Can we make a general request for you to modify the script which searches for savefiles in 214X to NOT grab any other savefile which is not intended for 214X?
I don't recall this having happened with 214R when I added 4.12 or slaxer_pup?

thanks

The grabbing of a save-file occurs if one, and only one, save-file is found. Otherwise a choice of found save-files is offered.

Just skimming through initrd_sbin/init, I'd say that the absolutely simplest way to avoid the automatic, possibly disastrous, grabbing of a save-file is to always offer a choice, lines 615ff of initrd_sbin/init:
Quote:
# gives user option of choosing pupsave. if only one exists selects it
choose_pupsave_func(){
## set PUPSAVE
#set -- $ALLPUPSAVES # just pass it to function...
#if [ $# -eq 1 ];then # only one pup_save -- use it
# PUPSAVE="$1"
#elif [ $# -gt 1 ];then # more than one -- ask which to use
echo -e "\\033[1;36mPLEASE CHOOSE WHICH SAVE FILE TO USE" >/dev/console
echo "0 none" >/dev/console
CNT3FS=1
for ASAVE in $@
do
APART=${ASAVE%,*} ; APART=${APART#*,}
case "$ASAVE" in
*.[23]fs) # pup_save file
AFILE=${ASAVE##*,}
echo -e "$CNT3FS Partition: $APART\tFile: $AFILE" >/dev/console
;;
*_install_3) # installed to part
AVER=${ASAVE%%_*} ; AVER=${AVER#*Puppy}
echo -e "$CNT3FS Partition: $APART\tPuppy $AVER install" >/dev/console
;;
*) # will be files saved to partition: PUPMODE 6/7
echo -e "$CNT3FS Partition: $APART\tSettings saved directly to partition" >/dev/console
;;
esac
let CNT3FS=CNT3FS+1
done
echo -en "Please type a number then press ENTER key: \\033[0;39m" >/dev/console
read NUM3FS
clear #v2.12
if [ $NUM3FS -gt 0 ];then
eval PUPSAVE=\$$NUM3FS
fi
#fi #if [ $# -eq 1 ]
## end set PUPSAVE

snayak,

I think what you need to do is boot with 'pfix=ram' , to ignore any save files. Once you reboot with a new savefile, 214X will list any available savefiles on your drive, as MHHP said.
Once you've got a working savefile, there are methods to enable grub/grub4dos to automatically load thesavefile in 214X's own subdirectory.

Hi, does this pup see ext4?
Because I extracted the files (initrd.gz pup_214X.sfs vmlinuz zdrv_214X.sfs) to the HD but it keeps saying 'Cannot find media on 'idehd'' (or 'atahd').
If I remove 'PMEDIA=idehd' it says it can't find files on 'idecd'.

First I tried with
Code:
title Puppy 214X (sda2/214Xfrugal) RAM mode\nBoot up Puppy without pupsave
  find --set-root --ignore-floppies --ignore-cd /214Xfrugal/initrd.gz
  kernel /214Xfrugal/vmlinuz   psubdir=214Xfrugal PMEDIA=IDEHD pfix=ram,fsck
  initrd /214Xfrugal/initrd.gz

with a IDEHD dummy file like Wary uses for ATAHD (tried ATAHD too).
Then after looking at http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=594638&sid=7a3bd3ecc517e36d9bc4ee41874fe748#594638 I tried
Code:
title Puppy 214X (sda2/214Xfrugal) RAM mode\nBoot up Puppy without pupsave
  rootnoverify (hd0,1)
  kernel /214Xfrugal/vmlinuz root=/dev/ram0 PMEDIA=idehd SFSFILE=ext3,hda2,/214Xfrugal/pup_214X.sfs pfix=ram
  initrd /214Xfrugal/initrd.gz

(the files are in 214Xfrugal subfolder in sda2)
Both gave the same error of not finding the media (idehd or atahd).
Mabe I need to add a pointer to zdrv_214X.sfs?

Code:
SFSFILE=ext3

Shouldn't this be:
Code:
SFSFILE=ext4


Just a thought.

Thanks, but it didn't help.
I added 'PDEV1=hda2' too but to no avail.
I guess I'll burn a CD to see if it can 'see' the ext4 partiton.

AFAIK, because of the older kernel 2.14X doesn't "see" ext4 partitions. It won't mount any of my ext4 save files anyway.

Just in case any users are curious about using newer browsers in 214X, I'm running both Firefox 11.0 and SeaMonkey 2.8 with no problems.
