Sorry, originally reported this in non-slim version, now removed.

Thought I'd give it one more try! Tried all boot options. Always: Fatal Error. "puppy_slacko_4.4.sfs not found"
Nothing works! Always get the 0,1,2 menu, all of which are irrelevant.

@Sage it looks like you tried the latest X-Slacko Slim.

Did you try the initrd-fallback mode? It was only a pristine initrd from X-Slacko compressed in xz.

By the way did you boot it on BIOS or UEFI?


Yes, have corrected.

Booted live on a BIOS machine.
"..initrd-fallback mode?" - Uh? Too many hoops to achieve the objective? Surely, if it is to be a 'live', 'compact', and 'slim' - it has to be complete in itself (just like all previous Puppies), maybe a few simple boot code options, and just run?! I just don't understand all the exortations to 'do this' 'do that' 'did you do the other'. Maybe time to redefine the purpose and ignore requests asking to run the nation's economic model on a 17yr-old 32bit PC?!
