It seems I spoke too soon about the network folder in HOME.
Suddenly it doesnt work when I click a network share.
But if I go thru yassm share - it DOES.

I,m not a linux OR puppy expert, but - it seems to me that there are a couple of bugs in 64 bit versions. (?)

AM now gonna try out a trusty old 32 bit version on this machine (a blazing good but cheap gaming stationary pc with standard hd and 8 gb ram)

brb.

For the most part this is not a concern but I have come across that windows sometimes shortens and converts the file-names from the ISO to capital letters - if this happens u need to rename them to their appropriate filenames, and if its hard to figure out the names - u can use rufus to create normal MBR bootable usb flash drive from the downloaded ISO, and just copy the 4 files from there)

There is an README.HTM file in the ISO that explains this situation.

If you build a Puppy ISO using the Joliet extensions, Windows will see the full filenames.

thanx rcrsn51 Smile

Joliet extensions. okay. Wink http://helledussen.com/mp3/Limbomusic/2008/Kjartan-fade_away.mp3

I put (my customized .zip/with uefiboot) with kernel4 but 32 bit version of tahr on a usb-stick and so far the "network" folder mounts all my shares just fine (after reboot/new save file of course)

And. everything just works. any thoughts anyone? ARE there some cute bugs in 64 bits versions ?

I can't help with 64bit stuff just yet as I've only just aquired a machine that is new enough and haven't had much time to play.

Tahts cool Smile I have done some testing on various pc s and MY verdict is that there ARE some bugs - with 64 bit - NOT 32 bits. but I,m not sure to post anything except here. (people could get angry, and kill me, and I dont want that to happen)

Nile Rodgers. He,s known for the latest hits like the funk something. anyway - HE AND the bass player bernard edwards are like the most groovy people EVER. THEM 2 are behind ALL the great disco songs (look it up) - its like they wake up every morning feelig grooooovy. THANK GOD they exist. (altho the concept of a GOD is quite silly)

Yeah. The problem disrcibed before in earlier tidings does NOT happen on a 32 bit pup.
( I just woke up with my knickers around my head)

So my earlier description of events DO indeed stand against the tides of time.

Subject description: yet another video
 

I have a webcam that films my front door (in case I have any clients - I fix computers) - and its sometimes set up with motion detection - so that if something happens in front of the cam - it takes a pic every 3 secs. - well, I forgot to turn it off. For about 3 months - ended up with a LOT of pics - so I made a couple of timelapse (really boring) videos. Sorry.

Subject description: maybe my rescue
 

So, I fell down Hell's spiral staircase this week with a Dell laptop- the UEFI firmware won't accept any other media without the HDD in place, and the HDD won't even boot into RE after the customer tried to do a factory restore. All of the partitions and files look correct, and I ran the typical repair-console commands externally. It even looks like it has the original factory recovery partition. It will not boot off the optical drive or any other USB bootable I've tried. Now I will try this.
On the plus side, I've jimmied the HDD enough to get the POST to failover into a "Process1 initialization failed" screen without simply POSTing to the UEFI screen as was the situation the customer brought to me.
I have a extensive post on Steemit about this(I'm trying to wean myself off the Book of Face).

Tried it with secure boot disabled in the UEFI bios?
