i have 2 problem with fatfree 3.0
- it don't recognize his pup_save.2fs after a frugal installation so he starts each time as new system and you can add nothing in permanent installation (puppy 3.0 works properly)
- the Xvesa became on fatfree 3.0 and on puppy 3.0 a very poor Xvesa! in Xvesa and fatfree 2.17 I use the resolution 1280 x 1080 x 24 but this better resolution is not available any more (same for 1400 for people with better video card as my card).

I updated this thread
if you want more options I made a script for you
First ,thanks for trying fat free and taking the time to report your situation.
because you asked ...
I booted fatfree3 selected xvesa set my monitor installed to my ext2 drive frugal and when it prompted me for the pup_300.sfs I said yes I used no encryption 512M save and when I rebooted everything was fine the only thing I noticed different instead of the usual /mnt/home there was a folder created called puppy300 inside that was /mnt/home /puppy so , It worked for me ( another note I installed IDE)
The xvesa driver is based on the video card you have I booted version 3.01 all the way down to version 212 with xvesa and the video setting you posted was not available
I suggest you find the version that booted xvesa with the 1280 x 1080 x24
and please post the version of puppy that xvesa had those settings on your current configuration
P.S I have email for my name at email@example.com
