How is Shakel related to Proteus then?

I wonder what menu.lst they suggests?
This code boots to a installation guide that wipes out the HD
seems they don't want people to do frugal install. Smile

Code:

title slackel
  root (hd0,0)
  kernel (hd0,0)/slackel/bzImage noauto copy2ram from=/slackel/
  initrd (hd0,0)/slackel/initrd.img

Porteus 3.0 Mate.

Code:
guest@porteus:~$ uname -r
3.13.6-porteus
guest@porteus:~$


Here's the menu.lst I'm using on an ext4 partition.

Code:
title Porteus 3.0 MATE in sda14
  root (hd0,13)
  kernel /porteus/boot/syslinux/vmlinuz from=/porteus changes=porteus
  initrd /porteus/boot/syslinux/initrd.xz
  boot

Thanks James

On an older Porteus from 2013 Dec 30 something
this one boots fast and the OS works as expected.
Code:
title Portdeb (sda1/portdeb)
  root (hd0,0)
  kernel (hd0,0)/porteus/boot/syslinux/vmlinuz noauto copy2ram from=/porteus2014/ changes=/changes.dat
  initrd (hd0,0)/porteus/boot/syslinux/initrd.xz


I am using it now at time of writing. Will try to boot your code too soon .

Edit here is what goes wrong with latest 3.0 version.

I dont seem to have the needed Porteusv3.0 x86.64.sgn file.
It ask for it and when it does not find it then it refuse to load and boot.
Where do I find that file?

nooby, it's in porteus subdirectory, I htink problem is in your grub entry, which one is correct subdir porteus or porteus2014 ? if you boot kernel and initrd from porteus then your from=/ parameter should also be porteus, no?

BTW I just booted 2 different versions of porteus (both 3.0 but different isos choosen from their desktop wizard.) I like the approach of building and downloading custom iso.

I like the modular approach and choice of apps in lxde version is incredibly similar to puppy's, with libreoffice and firefox iso is about 340 Mb
I also tried razor-qt version because I never used that desktop enviroment, choice of apps I got in ~175 MB iso is great -gimp, vlc, qmmp, qbittorrent, unfortunately I haven't included browser.
razor qt seems slick and good.
QT is indeed powerfull framework although I don't normally use it.

Ouch - problem was my error - I had earlier version of Porteus on my hard disk - but as Nooby says below, the Porteus forum was very helpful and friendly in analysing my error....

Don't get me wrong now. Bst chance to get answer
would be ti join their own forum. They are rather friendly to deal with.

dejan555 yes maybe the 3.0 versions is keen on havin the rightname.

But the 2.0 from Dec 2013 do boot with this code.
Code:
title Portdeb (sda1/portdeb)
  root (hd0,0)
  kernel (hd0,0)/portdeb/vmlinuz noauto copy2ram from=/portdeb/ changes=/changes.dat
  initrd (hd0,0)/portdeb/initrd.xz[quote]
so if it accept portdeb then why would it fail with porteus2014?
Not logical to me. I look for the .sgn file and make a opy in many places to see what happens. [/quote]

yes but in that old code you have "portdeb" 3 times

In new code you have "porteus2014" only once and "porteus" twice

Is that because you have vmlinuz and initrd in directory named differently then where modules are? What I'm saying is not that it needs specific name but that maybe you put wrong name of directory in new code?

Wow oops my bad how can I be so blind.
Embarrassing indeed. So typical me.
dejan555 thanks indeed. I try again.

What about Shakel. OS somebody suggested that
Proteus and Shakel maybe I can reuse pars of the menu.lst?

Okay one step at a time.

I have to put them side by side
Code:

title Portdeb (sda1/portdeb)
  root (hd0,0)
  kernel (hd0,0)/portdeb/vmlinuz noauto copy2ram from=/portdeb/ changes=/changes.dat
  initrd (hd0,0)/portdeb/initrd.xz


Should be changed to
title Port2014
root (hd0,0)
kernel /porteus2014/wmlinuz noauto copy2ram from=/porteus2014/ changes=/changes.dat
initrd /porteus2014/initrd.xz

I even spotted a new error that i\ve made vmlinuz to wmlinuz
so when I did the changes you suggested and set the vmlinz
right then it just booted. So much thanks for helping me out.[/code]

I installed the 64bit Slackel to a hard drive partition on my
emachines D620 laptop.

It's working well so far.

James I trust that you refer to a full install maybe on
an USB or partition and not frugal install on
the regular harddrive? used by Wind 8.1

Yes, traditional full install on an ext4 partition.

I have Windows 7 ( a few have XP too) on a number of my computers (I hate Windows 8 and refuse to use it Smile ) but i always make room for a few ext 3 or ext4 partitions. So I don't have a clue about using Linux on NTFS....
