It's not easy to install if you don't have bootable USB ports.

I give a solution here...

I trust that Barry knew himself well enough
that if he tell everybody that he had retired
then we would know we should carry on his job

That would free him to only do what comes
spontaneously instead of feeling our demands on him.

Sure I can be wrong but I find that to be very logical. Smile

I agree he has such creative tendencies that must get bogged down by legacy puppylinux. He tried to fix the puppylinux time problem with automatic scripts and using other distros bases I.e. Woof. Then that project took most of his time. Soon as WolfCE came about he made room for play with quirky, and here we are new Quirky. I feel quirky was most like the wild creative stuff from early puppylinux, small, home grown and different take on how linux can be used. I always looked forward to quirky releases.
I'm currently avoiding flash based methods, until my packrat data hording issue is resolved, I hate to delete things and did not know I had a problem until I stopped using dvd multisession with my new laptop that has issues booting ( UEFI ). But using plop as awork around is being investigated.

If this is too derail then tell me and I make it an error post
with no content unless Flash is Mod disapprove?

I am curious. So he has made it as an 8GB image.
Suppose I have a 4GB usb flash mem only
could I not use some extract and do a normal frugal
instal? or on the HD I want to do a normal fruga install
there too.

So it is impossible to get the initrd.gz and vmlinuz
and the sfs file out of the image for 8GB? it is made another way?

Damn I am so confused about OS making. Love that you guys
can make OS it is not easy at all.

It is the Nobel Price Cermony today.
Next year I hope that they give it to
Linus Torvalds for giving us Open Software
kernel. He is a kind of Hero in my eyes.

I installed seamonkey-2.22.1-i486-quirky6.pet +
seamonkey_DEV-2.22.1-i486-quirky6.pet from the Quirky 6 directory on

Seamonkey works well although not exactly speedy on this pc, it's
missing a few icons on the opening screen too.

Links 2.8 works well.

I was able to make the nightly build of audacity work in Quirky 6
by adding a link named libjpeg.so.8 to Slacko libraries.

The two pet packages that must be installed are HERE

____________________________________________________

Warning !!! do not use any version of gparted before version 0.14.0
to manipulate your USB stick. I found that early versions
of gparted will remove boot flag.

To check your version of gparted here's what to do...

Launch gparted and try to change the flags on your device.
If you DO NOT see a 'Legacy boot' option then this version
of gparted should be avoided!!

I do sometimes come and read the latest posts on this forum!

Quirky 6.0 is coming very soon. Zillions of improvements. I can't say exactly how many more days to fix the final bugs and do more testing -- maybe just a few more.

Barry much appreciated
may I ask you to make a regular .iso
apart from the Image to USB version
so one can make a frugal install
and not have to use only USB?
