Hi Barry,

Still no joy with the amended script. I've tried both Puppy Precise 5.6 as well as Debian Wheezy. Both of these have Busybox installed. The target partition is ext4.

The error output is the same as before and the amended script issues no warnings while using Puppy as the install distro.

There is a warning when using Debian Wheezy as the install distro. Even although the image file and the install script exist in the same folder, the install script nevertheless can't see the image file.

The script does manage to copy over the boot folder containing the vimlinuz file - but nothing else. The rest of the files do not get copied. So, the script is failing just at that point. Can't see where the error is.

I needed to compile several other libs + install qt-482, then the
latest VLC compiled successfully.
I'm liking Quirky 6.0 a lot Smile

BarryK is working on a method to do exactly that - easy install an image to an existing partition.
It may be known as Quirky-6.1.
Early Xmas maybe ?

I have also tried to install quirky 6.00 by running write-quirky-to-partition.sh. However, it says Quirky image is not available. ( not able to detect Quirky6.00 image file) Even though it was in same folder where sh file is available. I have limited knowledge in linux and also not having any programming skill.

I have been able to use BK's scripts and quirky6-6.0.img.xz to install to a f2fs partition using the full space of the USB 16 GB thumb drive.

I began by using ./write-quirky-image-to-drive, writing quirky onto a 16 GB USB thumb drive, leaving about 7 GB of unused space. Rather than adding a third partition (to the FAT16 and f2fs), I deleted the f2fs partition with the root file system. The FAT partition with the bootloader etc I left intact on the drive.

Then I created (with the Gparted version 0.16.2 included in quirky6) a new f2fs partition of 14.88 GB that mostly filled the thumb drive, leaving a little space at the end for the secondary GUID partition table. (This was done with a second functioning copy of Quirky6).

I then used ./write-quirky-to-partition to put the root file system back on to the f2fs partition. BK made some recommended changes for /etc/rc.d/rc.sysinit: I did not make the change at line 152 "DEV1FS='f2fs'", since the partition is still in a f2fs format, but did the change at about line 80 regarding busybox mount.

The system will still not boot yet, because the file SYSLINUX.CFG has the incorrect partition UUID value, and doesn't know where to find the root file system (it is trying to use the UUID value of the original f2fs partition).

To get the new UUID value, do "./gdisk /dev/sdx" where "x" is the thumb drive in question (in my case ./ gdisk /dev/sdc) which will give some preliminary info, and await furthur commands. Enter "i" for detailed information, and enter "2" for the f2fs partition.

Two GUID values will be reported, but the one we need is the one labled "Partition unique GUID". Copy this value and go to the partition 1 (FAT16 partition) and open SYSLINUX.CFG, go to the line "append root=PARTUUID=" and replace the value there with the one copied from gdisk interrogation of the new f2fs partition. Save SYSLINUX.CFG and the system should be bootable. Mine was!

I repeated the above procedure on a 32 GB USB stick (=> a 29.8 f2fs partition) which worked equally well.

Please be patient with an old grumpy Noob.

I am a frugal fanatic so no way I destroy the only ntfs
partition I have with all the other puppies and other
Linux frugal installs that is on that single partition. sda1 the sda2 is for
windows Vista on the Desktop. I need those for upgrading my smartphones
but I never use it other than for that purpose maybe once a year. Smile .

So please make a version that one can manually install
as a standard frugal install that Puppy has worked for many years.

We need mirrors. Dowloads usally take a few minutes
but this one some33 minutes.

I used this write-quirky-to-partition.sh that I downloaded a few
minutes ago (dec 18th) from ibiblio.
I commented out this section of the script and the script ran without
error then:

#TESTDIR="`pwd`/write-quirky-to-partition"
# if [ ! -f "$TESTDIR" ];then
# echo
# echo "ERROR!"
# echo "You should have downloaded the Quirky6 compressed image, named
# something like 'quirky6*-img.xz' and it must be in the same folder
# as the script you are now executing. You must have opened a terminal
# in that folder and then executed this script.
# So, the current directory:"
# pwd
# echo "...is wrong. Aborting."
# exit
# fi

The screenshot shows the result, still getting the Seamonkey popup though until Barry's fix is applied.

PostPosted: Wed 18 Dec 2013, 06:22    Post_subject: My report on Quirky 6.0  

Hi all,

I have Quirky installed on a 16 gb flash drive. The install script appears to have formatted the flash drive as f2fs, but it's showing up as two partitions: sdb1 (fat) and sdb2(f2fs). I am not sure if this is the intended outcome or not. Should I have re-formatted the flash drive as ext 2 or ext 3, and then installed Quirky?

I've only begun to look at Quirky, so have not done much testing yet. However, I do want to report that I managed to install Quirky on my Windows laptop. This was out of necessity, because it is my only computer that is capable of booting from a usb drive. Sadly, (perhaps) my linux distros currently run on much older systems. What I did is run debian squeeze in a virtual machine with VMware Player... Wink It all went quite smoothly, except that I found that I had to add the file extension to the shell script when setting permission and then running it, but I guess that is standard in debian.

Cheers,
Monsie

Thanks for the hint Billtoo. I commented out the section that you indicated, but I'm still getting the same error message as before:

Quote:
Writing Quirky6 files to sda10...
vmlinuz...
all of Quirky files, please wait...
mount: unknown filesystem type 'f2fs'
cp: cannot stat `mntpt/*': No such file or directory
sed: can't read /mnt/sda10/sbin/init: No such file or directory
sed: can't read /mnt/sda10/etc/rc.d/rc.sysinit: No such file or directory
umount: can't umount mntpt: Invalid argument

That's it, done!


Anything else I can try with the script?. I've already tried replacing f2fs with ext4 but still no joy.

I ran the script from sda1 which is ext4, sda2 is also ext4.
I just noticed a new empty folder in hold directory.
I was just sharing what worked for me, other than that I have no more
ideas.
I ran the script from precise 5.7.1 which is a frugal install on sda1.
My hard drive just has the 2 ext4 partitions + a swap partition.
Yours is much more complex so that's beyond me Smile

Yeah, that will be fixed in next release. The "make install" installs the mtools-dependent 'sylinux', but there is a 'syslinux-nomtools' in the source package. Have to manually get that out, rename as 'syslinux'.

Actually, I have rolled back to version 4.05.

5.10 won't load the initial .lss splash image.

I will upload a 4.05 PET soon.
