@diditt does your slacko use nvidia proprietary drivers? TazPuppy uses nouveau xorg driver for nvidia video cards

i know that tazpuppy uses it but there is also proprietary drivers in repository so probably it must work.
And also sensors doesnt work here - it shows temp1: +0.0°C (high = +70.0°C) that is impossible

@zagreb

Try to swap kernel and zdrv modules using the kernel and zdrv modules from a later build puppies. Just don't forget to rename the donor zdrv to zdrv_tazpup_5.0.sfs

I've been trying to integrate TazPuppy into a multiboot USB/ISO, but I've been having problems regarding real vs. protected mode mounting and what the kernel sees after it loads drivers. This a common problem with distros that use more than just vmlinuz and initrd to load the whole distro into RAM, as is the case with distros that use sqfs to load the rest of the OS into a ramdrive (i.e. Puppy Linux).

I've tried GRUB4DOS and SYSLINUX as bootloaders with a bunch of different commands to try and "hint" to the kernel that there actually is a ramdisk ISO mounted in some memory location, but since this ISO is mounted (mapped) in real mode (not protected mode), the kernel can't see it, thus, it can't see the sqfs file... and this is where the loading process stops.

The only solution that I'm aware of is to use memdiskfind in the init script, which should point the kernel to where this ISO is mapped/mounted in real mode, but, in order to do this, you have to know where to insert this command.

Code:
modprobe phram phram=memdisk,$(memdiskfind)
modprobe mtdblock


Could this be done with TazPuppy? If so, what tools would I need to extract/decompress the initrd file, edit the init script and compress the initrd file. Where would I have to insert this command and where do I place the memdiskfind file in the ISO (the root Question)?

Also, tried the newest beta, 47, in VMware. It doesn't boot to X, just stays at bash.

I was tinkering the last few days with the problem I mentioned in my previous post and did a quick and dirty hack Razz Very Happy. I noticed this in the init script.

Code:
#first look inside initrd...
echo "Checking puppy files inside initrd..."
[ -f /${PUPXXXSFS} ] && PUPSFS="rootfs,rootfs,/${PUPXXXSFS}"
[ -f /${ZDRVSFS} ] && ZDRV="rootfs,rootfs,/${ZDRVSFS}"
[ -f /${FDRVSFS} ] && FDRV="rootfs,rootfs,/${FDRVSFS}"
[ -f /${ADRVSFS} ] && ADRV="rootfs,rootfs,/${ADRVSFS}"
[ -f /${YDRVSFS} ] && YDRV="rootfs,rootfs,/${YDRVSFS}"


So, basically I just unpacked the initrd, cpio extracted the content, added the sfs files in the same dir and cpio-ed the dir, compressed the file and... well, it worked Smile. Now, I can chainload the TazPuppy iso Smile.

I haven't tried this with any other distros that use sfs, but I'll look into other init scripts. If they check into the root of the ramdrive, this might be a good temporary workaround Wink.
