Alpha 1 (puppy-4.00alpha3.90-k2.6.21.7) couldnt find my scsi drive.
I boot from ide and then mount scsi.

Pup 2.17 can mount scsi.
Alpha1 doesnt even acknowledge its existence.

Is that fixed in alpha 2?
pup is a real slow download, so i dont want to bother trying till the scsi problem is fixed.

On a separate note, is 4.0 able to upgrade from 2.17 save file.
Save file is backed up on scsi.

Thanx

Dingo alpha1 and alpha2 has a cutdown zdrv file and probably a driver needed for your scsi drive is missing.
Dingo alpha releases should not be used to upgrade any existing pup_save files.

Finding drives is kinda critical to usage....maybe even more important than an app that can be petted. Both my hd and cd can't be found.

Is there an expanded zdrv that can be gotten to replace the cut down one?

Thanx

Yes, there will be a full zdrv that I'll upload soon.
