PostPosted: Wed 02 May 2012, 11:28    Post_subject: fixing the boot up menu  

Quote:
# menu.lst produced by grub4dosconfig-v1.7.9
#color white/blue black/cyan white/black cyan/black
splashimage=/splash.xpm

I tried this fix in saluki and in lighthouse on 2 machines.
It does not solve the menu highlighting problem.

The puppy that grub4dos does not find is Legacy os4.

Hope that helps.

Will you try to comment out the 'splashimage' line instead of the 'color' line if you are not using splash image. (Both menu.lst and menu-advanced.lst)

Would you check out these two buttons in
Pemasu's Precise.

They caused the application to freeze when clicked.

I didn't have time to test properly

The app does work well otherwise.

Thank you don for the report.
I am aware that the '<list>' box of the gtkdialog is buggy under some circumstance. It will be replaced with '<tree>' by coming release. Hopefully it will fix the problem.

I am using a splash screen with saluki 21.
But the fix did not fix it.

The Legacy 4.21 sfs is in the mnt/home/Legacy os4 folder.


hope that helps.

means 'Legacy os4' with a space? Can you save your session there?

@Pete22
Ensure BOTH from the menu.lst and menu-advanced.lst commented out the 'color' line if you use the splash image.

OH Ok I found what you were talking about for the Advanced Menu.lst. Embarassed

Yes that fixes that problem.

Thanks for your persistence in helping me SEE it. Wink


This is a great program.

PostPosted: Thu 03 May 2012, 15:46    Post_subject: Legacy os and others that the grub4dos can't see.
Sub_title: and problems with main sfs files
 

Yes, the space makes a difference.
In fact, I also had this problem with HanSamBen. There was a blank space
after the name that I did not know was there. When I deleted it, Grub4dos could see the installation.
When I tried to boot Hansamben, Grub4dos did it with no problem.
So I changed Legacy os4 to Legacyos4,and then Grub4dos could see the installation.

Now I have a new problem with Legacy. It says it can not find the main sfs file that is in the folder. So boot fails Confused

With Lighthouse x64 5.14 Grub4dos finds the main sfs file but can not load it into ram. So boot fails. Confused


Still I love this program.

Pete

To Pete22
This is my entry in menu.lst to boot lighthouse 64

title lighthouse 64 MARINER
  find --set-root --ignore-floppies /lighthouse/initrd.xz
  kernel /lighthouse/vmlinuz pfix=vesa pmedia=atahd psubdir=lighthouse
  initrd /lighthouse/initrd.xz


This can help you? May be

PostPosted: Thu 03 May 2012, 19:40    Post_subject: bug in version 179  

Note to Shinobar about new version of Grub4dos 179 :

I made a mistake when criticising Pemasu's Precise

It was actually Lucid Puppy 528. I burnt an ISO and
I made a full install.

When I tested more recent Puppies they worked well.

Here's how to duplicate the bug just for the record.

1) I booted the LUPU 528 CD puppy pfix=ram

2) My browser wasn't set and I have no internet access.
I installed your pet package.

3)From the start menu I launched grub4dos, then I
selected a hard drive entry and clicked on either of the
two icons I showed in picture.

4) App would freeze.



I checked a full install of LUPU 528 and it did the same thing.

Note that version 1.7 doesn't have this problem.

I couldn't reproduce with lupu-528.005 furugal install, pfix=ram. Depends on the hardware?
But i have encountered similar problem with other program using <list> in the gtkdialog3 on lupu-528JP(developing). Anyway, I will switch to <tree> instead of <list> in the next release. The <tree> is used in the Puppy Package Manager, so it must be stable on many Puppies.

Have you ever run the Legacy and/or Lighthouse x6 on your PC?
The kernel the Puppies use and your hardware may cause a problem.

Two possible reasons

1) I used the basic ISO which has gtkdialog 0.7.21
not .8 (I believe)

2) I tested on a full install and booting from a CD
