I am trying to get pupeee b4 to boot from an sdhc card without much luck , I'm having the same problem as smoeky01 , starts to boot , loads kernel and drivers then cant find pup_301.sfs . I have reinstalled using puppy universal installer about 10 times tried different mbr's reformated the sdhc atleast 6 times . pupeee b4 is the only thing that has ever been written to that card , it is a brandnew toshiba 4gb highspeed sdhc , is the problem that I am formating it to ext3 , does it have to be fat16 or 32 ? and note that when it boots it is looking for pup_301.sfs not pup_301-eee.sfs which is what is actualy there ( though I tried renaming it , that didn't help) I have d/l'd b4 twice and burned it to 3 different cd's (all of which boot and run fine) . also I do not get the standard puppy boot message when trying to boot from the card so I can't try feeding it boot parms , the cd's do give the message , I have tried erasing the files after install and copying them back direct from the cd no help , what am I doing wrong ?

edit later in the day , I d/l'd and installed breezy for the eee on an sd card no problem . so why cant I get pupeee to work ?

edit 1 day later finaly figured out what I was doing wrong , my ignorance of the eee ( I only had it 2 hrs when I tried to install pupeee ) caused me to assume I should choose cf connected to ide for the place to create the files , pupeee did see the sd card there but the files apearently were corrupting . the correct choice is USB FLASH ( I thought that was for a usb stick rather than an sd card) I tried both fat 16 and ext3 both worked but ext3 seems to work better and faster . next hurdle I have 2gb ram but pupeee like xandros is only seeing 1 rafy's breeezy also only sees one can this be fixed ?

edit a few says later: again I have to plead mea culpa to ignorance (of puppy this time ) I had immeadately created a pupsave file so the "memory" display in the bottom bar was showing the remains of the pupsave rather than ram . top shows the correct value .

I am doing repeated edits so that others may profit from my errors .

[busted]

OK its pupEEE, meant for an Eee pc. Can I download the iso file to an Eee USB stick, and get syslinux to make the copy to the SD card by copying the /boot (or other directory) ISOLINUX file to the /root and renaming the latter copy to SYSLINUX? Just a start.

it's much simplier!
just burn on to CD and boot any desktop computer and use Puppy universal installer to install on usb -pen drive
then boot EEE pc and install
read also here ( a very good review of Pupeee)

magerlab:

no 2nd computer, and the Eee doesn't recognize ISO 9660 filing system (DATA cd-r). There's a way to do this for puppy, wondering if the pupeee can do this trick. After all pupeee is for the Eee PC.

I am using a makeshift dvd drive on my eeepc.

I dont have an external dvd drive, but I do have an eternal hard drive case. I opened it up, and connected an internal dvd drive to it.(I really need to get an external case for the dvd drive.) I am running pupeee on it now. If i can get everything to work that I need, I will install pupeee to my eeepc.

Anybody know how well a smart card reader works with CAC's (command access cards) on puppy?

Regarding boot times, I got an abysmal five minute bootup time from a frugal install on my 2GB Kingston Datatraveller, though a hdc=modprobe brought that down to a only slightly more acceptable 3m45s.These drives are slow, might buy a Corsair Flash Voyager soon to try out (and 4GB one is about 20 USD in sweden).

A full install on the SSD took 48 seconds to boot, but I switched to frugal before trying the modprobe trick on it. Without modprobe, boot time was a very dissapointing 2 minutes, but with that boot entry it's down to 48 secs, which seems to be the same everyone else is getting.

I only have Firefox installed on my user file, though I might try removing some apps and remastering the pup_xxx.sfs file for a hopefully faster boot. Anyone know if this might have any significant impact? What programs are safe to remove anyway, I heard printing is dependent on Abiword, for one thing.

to have a faster boot up you must add
hdc=noprobe to the line in grub
