I clicked on bootx64.efi it cycled me back to the Boot Manager window which took me back to the Shim UEFI then back to the Boot Manager window.

What am I missing, please?

After you have added your new boot option, move that new boot option to the top of the boot order. Again, this will vary with different UEFI implementations. Then save and reboot.

Step 1

Done.

Step 2

Done.

Step 3


Done.

Step 4


Done.

Step 5

Here's the hugely confusing part ...

I get these options at the Lighthouse Pup splash/menu:

Start EFI Shell

NOTE: This brings me to EFI Shell version 2.31 [4096.1]
Current running mode 1.1.2
[color=yellow]Device mapping table
[/color] ....
Shell>

Start MOK utility at EFI\BOOT\MokManager.efi on lh64b2

NOTE: This takes me to "Shim UEFI key management" with the options
Continue boot
Enroll key from disk
Enroll hash from disk

Start MOK utility at EFI\BOOT\MokManager.efi on 9 MiB FAT volume

NOTE: This takes me to "Shim UEFI key management" with the options
Continue boot
Enroll key from disk
Enroll hash from disk

About rEFInd
Shut Down Computer
Reboot Computer

OR, I can arrow-up and get "Boot Lighthouse64 Linux from 9 MiB FAT volume".

So, where do I go to complete Step 5, please?

Everything I have tried so far has be chasing my tail ... Rolling Eyes

Thanks, David

PostPosted: Mon 08 Jul 2013, 10:45    Post subject: VM hosting via KVM or VirtualBox  

YES, @AwesomesaurusRex both VM subsystems do create a "box" (really its a PC, virtually) within your running LH64 system...internally.

And, just as you would with a separate PC on your LAN, that "box" will need to connect to your LAN to use any files/folders/apps that are on any other PC on your LAN. IT would do it in exactly similar way that any other PCs can access files on other computers. So, essentially, the virtual PC, the "box", behaves and operates as a REAL PC.

There is one additional thing to remember when you use either VM host (QEMU-KVM or VirtualBox), you MUST instruct LH64 to create a network so that the "box" can live on the same LAN as LH64. Many users have missed this key piece in understanding.

Should you or anyone want to do this, post back indicating such. And, if anyone has already done this with LH64, also post back. TaZoC has posted an excellent approach to initiate running a 32bit OS in the "box" on LH64. This is a excellent element of LH64 and FATDOG-V600+.

Here to help

I'm assuming you've added your custom boot entry that we discussed earlier, and moved it to the top of your boot options (Step 5) (both done in UEFI Setup -> Boot page (aka BIOS Setup) by pressing F2 or similar when your PC starts.

Now it looks like you've rebooted and are seeing the rEFInd boot manager. So arrow-up to 'Boot Lighthouse64...' and press Enter. Usually that is already selected by default so that LH64 will boot when pressing Enter, or automatically after 10 sec. if nothing is pressed. On my system there is also an icon for starting Windows 8.

The screen you described is defined by the file refind.conf in /EFI/boot/ in your new Fat32 1GB partition, which can be opened with a text editor and tweaked as needed.
e.g., change 'timeout 10'
to 'timeout 5' or so
There should be an entry in refind.conf for Windows 8, which you can change to Windows 7. If it doesn't work there are suggestions in red under Step 4 of the install guide.

Hope that helps,
TaZoC

MAYBE THIS WAS ADDRESSED BEFORE, BUT:

...just wish I could do full install of Lighthouse64, and why not Question

I really don't fully understand [ noob am i ] ... so if not Lighthouse64, is there a 64bit, XFCE Puppy that can be fully installed?

Sincere thanks for your kind words of advice -

Bad news ... not working ... Crying or Very sad

The lighthouse64 selection in the Boot Manager has disappeared.

I am back to needing the USB stick in order to boot to LH64.

Arghhh!

Welcome dblmint!

Please see this post:
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=704059#704059

...and this guide for recommended installation:
http://www.lhpup.org/help/faqs/harddrive.html

I think after giving a frugal install a try, you'll find it works very well. You can boot off a USB stick or the hard drive itself. The only tough part of installation is, if your machine came with Windows 8 and UEFI firmware. But that applies to both a full and a frugal install. I recently tried a full install with Slackware64-current on a notebook with Win 8 and UEFI, and it was harder than I expected; took me about a week to get it working properly. Surprised

I gave up on UEFI Frugal for the moment & am booting, albeit a little inconsistently, from a USB stick.

OK, so not so funny guys, where are the files hidden? Smile

I can see Seamonkey 12 files I acquired via Puppy Package Manager when I use pfind but when I go to /usr to look at them they are nowhere to be found - and I do have All on to show them in case they are Hidden.

Very weird.

Thunderbird is such a MS-Outlook like behemoth.

I'd live with Firefox if there were an integrated email alternative for 64. Sigh.

Hi edoc,

A little off topic. I don't know anything about UEFI, but before I installed Windows 8, I did have frugal installations on the same drive with Vista that worked well. It appears that you need to resize your Windows partition and create a new linux partition for your frugal installations. CAUTION: Resize using Windows itself. Then install Grub4Dos to boot, it works great. That will get you away from booting with an USB installation.

Jim

Any chance any of these alternative email apps may be available for LH64, please?

Evolution (Looks a lot like Seamonkey email - good for LH64? Plays nicely with Firefox?l)

Kmail (can't tell if it easily handles multiple accounts)

Sylpheed (not sure if I like the way it works)

I looked at others but most seemed to be abandonware or severely limited somehow:

Alpine
Balsa
Cone
GNUmail
mailx
Mutt
Pine
Wanderlust (emacs)

WDYT?

David

There is a Sylpheed package in the Fatdog repo here. I have not tested it in LH64.
