Hi mistfire, somehow I'm not able to boot your distro. I get a message telling me that puppy_xslacko_4.4.sfs can't be found.

This is my entry in grub4dos, which basically is what I use for other Slackos. The only difference is that other Slackos use initrd.gz instead of initrd.xz:
Code:
title Puppy Slacko Slim
kernel /pup_slacko_slim/vmlinuz pmedia=usbflash pfix=ram
initrd /pup_slacko_slim/initrd.xz


This the content of the the source directory:
Code:
# ls -l /mnt/home/pup_slacko_slim
total 162696
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root   1032108 Nov 23 17:58 initrd-fallback.xz
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root   1804512 Nov 22 15:31 initrd.xz
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 149676032 Dec 13 00:17 puppy_xslacko_4.4.sfs
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root   4944368 Nov 27 23:21 vmlinuz
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root   9129984 Nov 23 14:54 zdrv_xslacko_4.4.sfs

I also tried initrd-fallback.xz. Same result. Related to the xz compression? What am I doing wrong?

@foxpup may I know the name and model of your sound card and touchpad?
This is from pup-sysinfo in slacko64-6.9.9.9:
Code:
Audio device [0403]: Intel Corporation Sunrise Point-LP HD Audio [8086:9d70] (rev 21)
+ Kernel Driver: snd_hda_intel

+ Path: /lib/modules/4.9.30/kernel/sound/pci/hda/snd-hda-intel.ko
+ Description: Intel HDA driver

The full audio specs in attachment.

Just another minor thing: setting the numeric lock on startup does not work. Maybe it does for a moment, the indicator turns on and then off again almost immediately.

@MochiMoppel you installed X-Slacko Slim in a subfolder so the name of subfolder must be specified

Code:
title Puppy Slacko Slim
kernel /pup_slacko_slim/vmlinuz pmedia=usbflash pfix=ram psubdir=pup_slacko_slim
initrd /pup_slacko_slim/initrd.xz

As the sfs main file is in the same folder as initrd.xz and vmlinuz Puppy should find it, but I also tried psubdir as you proposed. No change, can't find puppy_xslacko_4.4.sfs. Here my full grub4dos menu, All other pups start without a psubdir parameter:
Code:
title Puppy Slacko 5.6
kernel /pup_slacko/vmlinuz pmedia=usbflash pfix=ram
initrd /pup_slacko/initrd.gz

title Puppy Slacko Slim
kernel /pup_slacko_slim/vmlinuz pmedia=usbflash pfix=ram psubdir=pup_slacko_slim
initrd /pup_slacko_slim/initrd.xz

title Puppy Slacko 6.3.2
kernel /pup_slacko632/vmlinuz pmedia=usbflash pfix=ram
initrd /pup_slacko632/initrd.gz

title Puppy Tahr 6
kernel /pup_tahr/vmlinuz pmedia=usbflash pfix=ram
initrd /pup_tahr/initrd.gz

@Geoffrey

I have analyzed the logs from initrd temp that you sent I noticed that the probepart returns "none" or unknown filesystem on your drive

Code:

ONEDEV=sda SIZE= DEVICE=
  SIZE=0 FSTYPE=unknown
  /dev/sda|none|0
ONEDEV=sdb SIZE= DEVICE=
  SIZE=0 FSTYPE=unknown
  /dev/sdb|none|0
ONEDEV=sdc SIZE= DEVICE=
  SIZE=0 FSTYPE=unknown
  /dev/sdc|none|0
ONEDEV=sdd SIZE= DEVICE=
  SIZE=0 FSTYPE=unknown
  /dev/sdd|none|0
ONEDEV=sde SIZE= DEVICE=
ONEDEV=sde1 SIZE=3914752 DEVICE=sde1
  SIZE=3914752 FSTYPE=vfat
  /dev/sde1|vfat|7829504

Thanks for these file. I will analyze further the init script


@MochiMoppel did you try that psubdir parameter in initrd.xz and initrd-fallback.xz. Can you please send me the initrd/tmp files here

The hdd has two ext4 partitions, the save initrd temp didn't find it either, I had to use a fat formatted USB flash drive to save the files to.

Both

??? IIRC initrd.xz offered the option to save (?) tmp files. This option resulted in kernel panic.

I finally managed to boot X-Slacko Slim 4.4r4 from root level (no subdirs), but this is not an acceptable workaround. I also had problems with shutdown. I booted from sdb1 (USB stick), kept sda unmounted but spinning. At shutdown the HDD spins down, followed by the 'Now shutting off message' which caused the HDD to spin on again, followed by a kernel panic.

I give up for now.

@Geoffrey and @MochiMoppel it looks like probepart command on initrd has a problem on detecting gpt partition or there is a bug in the kernel that should be fix.

By the way I will try to download and compile later linux kernel. I heard that there is a bug on version 4.14.0 that can cause disk corruption.

Mistfire the vmlinuz seems to be the problem, I swapped the one from xslacko and it booted, but the old P4 PC I'm using has a SIS video on board and it fails to run.

@Geoffrey if you swap the kernel file the kernel modules inside the sfs file must be replaced. If will fail to run X because modules for the kernel that you swap is missing

I understand that, it was the fact that the puppy_xslacko_4.4.sfs was found and loaded by trying the vmlinuz from rg66's xslacko.
