Thanks for taking the time to test. Fat32 doesn't support linux links and some
characters. I'll have to read up on ntfs.

Now that you have it running make sure you expand the save file to
a more reasonable size using the method I gave a few posts ago.

The usual way I install is with Windows XP and the 7zip app.

I simply drag the files to the newly formated card.

But I have used linux a couple of times. I used pmirror program by Zigbert
to transfer the files from a folder to the card. I don't believe I've stored the files
on a NTFS hard drive. I'll do a test and report.

I've spent some time setting up fdarm to suit to me and I'm getting used to the differences between fdarm and lucid 5267 which is the puppy I use most. I have had one problem with seamonkey. I can't get bookmark.html files to import. I am importing from a file which I exported from firefox. If I try to import from a mounted flash drive via seamonkey when I get to the end of setting the path then press "open" I get "cannot import from sdc1 permission denied". However, mounting this drive outside seamonkey does not give any problems. I moved the file to home. This time seamonkey appears to import the .html file but no information is transfered. I'll spend some more time on this. I will also expand the save file as you suggest. It's good to be able to run an up to date puppy on the RPi2.

Regards,

Ken.

Found a sort of solution to importing bookmarks. I used pfind to find any seamonkey files. I noticed for some there were two of a number of files the only difference in the name was that one of the two ended in -spot. I then checked the .desktop file for seamonkey and the exec was seamonkey-spot.
I assumed I was running seamonkey as spot and this was why I did not have permission to read the .html file from the flash drive while in seamonkey. I then ran seamonkey as root and had no problem importing the bookmarks. I know this is less secure but I have run browsers in other puppies as root so far without a problem. If anybody has a solution to the importing of bookmarks while running as spot I would love to know how its done and I would then go back to running as spot.

Regards,

Ken.

to keniv ...

You should post on the fatdog arm site.

I checked installing by un-archiving on a ntfs partition (using puppy linux) first before
dragging to a fat32 stick.

The permissions were changed but I had no problems booting up.

I'll try the site on your link. Thanks for trying the ntfs thing though it looks from your result that it was not this that caused my problem. Can I ask if it is possible to make a version of wine for this version of fdarm. I looked at the package manager but did not find it. I just don't know enough to know how much work there would be in doing this. If is too much please forget I asked.

Regards,

Ken.

There is a commercial program 25 EUROS that is supposed to run on raspberry pi Raspian operating system
https://eltechs.com/product/exagear-desktop/exagear-desktop-features-and-prices/

Then you can run wine but the results are poor

Thanks for your reply. I'll follow the link and may try it. I'll report back. I only need wine to run two programs to do with a hobby of vintage electronics. One is a valve (tube) database. I runs well on wine.

Thanks again,

Ken.

Just read the information in the link. As you say the results don't look good and so I don't think I'll bother. It's a pity though.

Ken.

On my RP2 with u-mate was barely useable...

I think the best advice would be to try it. I have had my RPi2 for a short while but have tried the same OSs as you plus Openelec (Kodi). I have found overclocking did help a bit but probably the greatest effect was using a good faster SD card. I bought a 32MB class 10 48MB/s sd card from the net for about £7. I have all three of the above OS on it and multboot with berryboot. I have used puppy Linux for a while on an old laptop (800MHz 320MB) and it works fine. It would not run XP. I am keen to get this version to work on the RPi2 as I like it and I suspect it will run faster than anything else. Hope this helps. Perhaps others with more experience will be able to give you more detailed advice.

Regards,

Ken.

Here's a fast download site for Wheezy Raspian.

There isn't much difference with Fatdog Arm if the apps are similar.

Tip: You mustn't put
Code:
net=wired:eth0:dhcp

in cmdline.txt if you haven't connected your board to a router or another computer.
The booting procedure will just stall.

I made a new package ----> fatdogarm-05-09-2016.zip
See first post for installation instructions.
There are several improvements.

1.) Removed net=wired:eth0:dhcp from cmdline.txt since this would
halt the booting of board if ethernet cable wasn't plugged into router.

2) updated mtpaint and fatdog_connect.sh

3) image info right click added

4) viewnior right click

5) Save file increased to 1.5 gigabyte. This should be enough to do some
compiling.

6) zip package simplified. Just open the zip package and
drag the files and one folder to a freshly formatted micro sd card

PostPosted: Mon 09 May 2016, 16:55    Post subject: dualboot possible?  

Hi don570

Thanks for your work and the clear instructions.

I currently have raspbian installed on my raspberrypi2, setup to boot directly into kodi. I also have other daemons running on it.

Since the Raspbian install is working very well for me, i am hesitating a little to modify anything on it. The pi is connected to the network with a cheap USB WiFi dongle that uses the realtek rtl8188eus driver. I found a precompiled binary on the raspberry forums which is working well.

I read on some other forums that BerryBoot can be used to for dual booting on the pi
Will do some more research but would like to know if you already are aware of that possibility

Even if i cannot set up the the dual boot, i will backup the sd card partitions and will try a fresh install of Fatdog ARM over the weekend

Thanks again

Cheers!
