To install Quirky Werewolf 64-bit 7.4 is easy. First please download the werewolf64-7.4.iso from:
http://distro.ibiblio.org/quirky/quirky6/amd64/releases/werewolf-7.4/

Then you can use any one of below way to install:

1. For user with any Linux OS installed.
a. Download the "installquirky" script from same site above. For 64bit Linux OS, please download "installquirky.amd64". For 32bit Linux OS, please download "installquirky.x86".
b. Change the "installquirky" script to executable.
c. Run the script, you can select "Full installation", "Frugal installation" and "Live-CD".
c. Both "Full installation" and "Frugal installation" can install werewolf-7.4 to a partition or a Drive.

Remark:
a. The "Full installation" will install the werewolf-7.4 roofs to a full partition.
b. The "Frugal installation" will install werewolf-7.4 roofs to a folder of a partition.
c. If you not install to Disk, you need boot loader installed and configure the boot loader(see method 3d).
d. Install to Disk will help you install both the werewolf-7.4 and boot loader(It will erase and format your whole Disk!).

2. For new user or no boot loader installed user, this way is easy.
a. Burn the iso file to a CD, then boot up it.
b. In the middle of the desktop you can find a "Install" icon. Chick it and you can select "Full installation", "Frugal installation" and "Live-CD".
d. Same as the method 1, you can install werewolf-7.4 to a partition or a Drive. Please reference to method 1.

3. For regular Puppy Linux user and have boot loader installed(sda1), you can manually "Frugal installation" the werewolf-7.4.
a. Make a new folder(werewolf-7.4) on a partition(sda1), for example: /mnt/sda1/werewolf-7.4/
b. Open the iso file and copy below files to the "werewolf-7.4" folder. Don't forget to close the iso file after files copy.
Code:
vmlinuz
initrd.q
q.sfs

c. Create a file name "Q_ID" in the "werewolf-7.4" folder.
For werewolf-7.4, the content of the "Q_ID" is:
Code:
201512101229

The "Q_ID" file is very important, without it, the init script will not find the "q.sfs" file and boot failure.
d. Modify your boot loader(system linux) config file, and add below content:
Code:
label werewolf-7.4
kernel /werewolf-7.4/vmlinuz
append initrd=/werewolf-7.4/initrd.q rootwait rw

e. Reboot and select the "werewolf-7.4" to boot. You can set the "werewolf-7.4" as default boot if you like.

Remark:
If you used USB drive, perhaps you have a small partition(fat16, sdc1) for boot loader and a big partition(fat32, sdc2) for data. You can create two "werewolf-7.4" folder, one in sdc1, one in sdc2.
Then copy the "vmlinuz" and "initrd.q" to /mnt/sdc1/werewolf-7.4/, and copy the "q.sfs" and create the Q_ID file to /mnt/sdc2/werewolf-7.4/.
When the werewolf-7.4 boot, init script can find the "q.sfs" and boot normal.

Hopefully, this post can help the peoples who want to test the "werewolf-7.4".

Thanks, James. It was the liveCD that was causing issues for me with CTRL-ALT-BkSpce and on a single core 754 machine. Sorry, should've been more specific. The 754 is normally reliable, but needs more caution with its SiS chipset (which I've got used to mediating with!).

Confirm CTRL-ALT-BkSpce not working on two other machines in liveCD mode, another 754 and a 939. Not going to get access to multiple core HW for testing until after Christmas.

Unfortunately there is no mention in the install script 'installquirky.x86'
that a ISO needs to be downloaded until deep into the script.
It should be mentioned on the opening window.

I am still having the problem of clicking on the desktop icon representing
the partition for the Windows install and getting the message that it is
read-only (which is wrong)

If I use pmount app then the partition is writable.

Intel graphics chip isn't stable so I tried suggestion

Code:
Section "Device"
    Identifier  "Intel Graphics"
    Driver      "intel"
    Option      "AccelMethod"  "uxa"
EndSection



I put these lines after monitors description and before card description
in the /etc/X11/xorg.conf file.

So far it's working well Laughing

Suggestion : shouldn't these lines be in the sample xorg.conf file for intel graphics?

I couldn't find the .usfs.xz file for version 7.4 in the download links. Is there a plan to release this file at a later time?

This is my preferred file version since it allows me to install directly to the full USB flash drive.

I have deprecated the .usfs.xz file, will now only ship a .iso file. The Installer only uses an iso file now.


Use the new provided 'installquirky.amd64' or 'installquirky.x86', they will offer to install direct to a USB drive.

The .usfs.xz and .iso have the same files inside them. I rewrote the installquirky script to open up the .iso file and extract the files, to do full or frugal installs to drive or partition, no need to boot burn the .iso to a CD and boot it.

You just need to be running any recent version of Linux, to be able to run the installquirky script.

1. Decided to try "Quirky Werewolf 64-bit 7.4".

2. Running "Slacko--5.7.0-pae on 2012 64-bit desktop PC with UEFI set to legacy mode.
So...
a. Downloaded installquirky.x86 and ran it as instructed here I tried it both without and with the ISO downoaded, both failed at one point in both [can't remember the warning given]...


Oh dear! Sad

I would like to know what the error message is, when you run installquirky.x86 in Slacko 5.7.0.

Regarding the corrupted external drive, there are some file-recovery applications. I don't recall their names.
It is important not to attempt anything further on the damaged drive, until you can run one of those recovery apps.

Ref.: "Bugs - There are a couple I know of:

1. Xine hangs. I switched over from VLC as XINE plays my video test files much better. However, if XINE is closed via the menu, it leaves behind a zombie process that cannot be killed, and even prevents shutdown!
Always close XINE by clicking the close-box at top-right of window.
If anyone can figure that one out, please do!"

This one is easy to solve:

Go to 'Menu' -> 'Setup' -> 'Mouse/keyboard Wizard' -> 'Adjust mouse sensitivity'
Click on 'Screensaver' and deactivate it.

That's it!

With season greetings,
FeodorF


FeodorF sent me this PM.
I haven't tried it yet!

EDIT:
Just checked, XINE is run by a wrapper script, /usr/bin/xinwrapper, which has this:

Code:
#!/bin/sh

xset s off -dpms
if [ "$@" ];then
 xine --no-splash "$@"
else #xine will crash with empty ""
 xine --no-splash
fi
xset s on


Which means, it turns off the screensaver before executing 'xine'.

So the screensaver, on or off, is not the cause of the hang.

EDIT2:
Well that's interesting. I disabled the screensaver in pupX (see Setup menu), then ran 'xine', now it exits ok.

Is there something wrong with running "xset s off -dpms" prior to running "xine"?

Yes, I was aware of that. Very Happy
Here's my thread on trying to recover the drives.
The Flash Drive only has stuff on it I can afford to lose.
The external HDD has stuff on it that it would be inconvenient to lose, it would be nice to recover, but not disastrous if I do lose it.
It holds stuff used to install, backups are on a separate 2nd 1TB external HDD-2, that unfortunately doesn't have a backup of the content on the 80GB HDD-1.

No Barry, there is nothing wrong about 'xset s on/ xset s off' they work fine in 'urxvt'.

If you run them as batch files they work fine.

The funny thing is, that the XINE start script doesn't turn the screensaver back on which is odd.

Now we are coming closer to it - the xinewrapper doesn't finish.

Edit:
Xine doesn't finish properly - you'll have to reboot to kill it for good.

@Puppus Dogfellow, thanks! Downloaded the ISO, today, at 3.5MB/sec. Naming your download offerings to us as; "ISO in a minute". Cool

@BarryK, I am sure you already know this, but, thought I'd mention. Couldn't the PSW and/or uname tell an app, like an install utility which version, 32/64 bit, of install to proceed with?

Would this reduce user headaches (and yours), if employed, by reducing the number of utilities maintained/needed?

Here to help

2nd attempt at doing the necessary.
Both drives [80GB external HDD, 8GB Flash Drive] mentioned in previous posts have been recovered->partitioned->formatted.

1. Used this post as a guide.
Used method 1..
a. Downloaded the werewolf64-7.4.iso and installquirky.x86 since I'm working within a 32-bit Slacko-5.7.0-pae.
b. Changed the "installquirky" script to executable, by changing properties>permissions to execute.
c. Ran the script and chose frugal install to Flash Drive, and chose to zero-fill.

2. ERROR warning displayed:
Mounting first partition: sdc1
Error mounting first partition, aborting.

Clicked OK.

3. I was able to mount sdc2 manually as follows, and read the content of /mnt/sdc1.
a. sdc1 is displayed un-mounted on the desktop; no sdc2 displayed.
b. When I click sdc1 to mount it, pMount runs and displays [no sdc1] only sdc2 unmounted.
c. When I click sdc2 within pMount, it mounts within pMount and the icon on the desktop changes to sdc2 [no sdc1 displayed], and a ROX window opens displaying the empty /mnt/sdc2.
I can also open a new Xfe window to display the empty /mnt/sdc2.
d. I can also open a new Xfe to open and view the content of /mnt/sdc1/EFI/BOOT [2 files = BOOTX64.EFI, ldlinux.e64]

It appears that the the SAMBA package has been stripped of some of its support utilities. The smbclient is required for some needs in system debug, test, and use.

@BarryK is there any way to put those back in? Guidance needed.

PostPosted: Tue 15 Dec 2015, 23:44    Post subject:  

1. Downloaded werewolf64-7.4-8gb.img.xz to my recovered external HDD, and opened [in Xfe] a console window in the folder holding the xz file, and ran the following command:
xz --decompress --stdout werewolf64-7.4-8gb.img.xz | dd of=/dev/sdb bs=4M conv=fsync
/dev/sdb was the correct name of my 8GB Flash Drive [made sure I got it right this time].

2. The write to the Flash Drive completed OK.
I could see files on [sdb1 I think it was].
Rebooted [didn't save session changes!][Do I need to save?]
When booting the Flash Drive, the Werewolf64 screen was displayed, but then all I got was a flashing underscore.

3. Now when back in Slacko-5.7.0-pae, when I plug in the Flash Drive:
a. There's no display of any partitions for the Flash Drive [no sdb1 or sdb2].
But...
b. In GParted, when I choose sdb, I get:
LibParted bug found!
Invalid argument during seek for read on /dev/sdb1

...And GParted won't respond, and I'm forced to kill it.
c. Looks like I'll need to use the info in my thread [in this post]on this problem, to zero the 2x512-bits at start, then repartition and format.

4. Does anyone see anything I'm doing wrong? Confused

I tried running Quirky various ways, couldn't get those errors.
