lobster how you enjoying your eee?

So I am using Xandros on the eeepc
Not really sure how to make the above bootable devices - bootable
Been partitioning and setting flags and formatting from Windows
and just getting fed up - nothing seems to make them work . . .

This page has a number of tips about booting from USB thingies:
http://bootdisk.com/pendrive.htm
Hope it helps...

I am especially interested in Method 5 - using a dd-like utility to write a bootable image to usb devices. It would be nice if we could just download a bootable image of Pupeee, burn it on a USB stick (or better still on a SD card), stick the card in the eee and boot... Wink

Lobster, I had the same problem at first. I used the gparted app on the puppy live disk to reformat the USB pen drive to FAT32 and set the flag to bootable - the universal installer then ran like a dream, same for SD card and internal SSD!

I don't have access to a windows machine at present
However that is a good link - I think I got rid of everything - including the boot sector and that is the problem . . .

Appreciate the help

see the grub stage 1 info here;

http://www.geocities.com/thestarman3/asm/mbr/GRUB.htm

I believe installing grub restores damaged mbr, the same as w98 utility in windoze

PostPosted: Sun 08 Jun 2008, 18:57    Post subject: CAC for Department of Defence  

I am having problems compiling the files required for the cac reader. Here are the directions.

I have Pupeee on the internal card on the 4gig Eeepc with 1gig ram

http://symbolik.wordpress.com/2007/02/25/using-dod-cac-and-smartcard-readers-on-linux/

I am running into errors, I have never compiled before, so not understanding the error. I also cant copy and paste from the console to show you the errors

Can anybody try to compile these?.

I have devx set up, and it starts compiling, but something is going wrong in the make process.

I started a new post on this at http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=30126

whodo i tried ezpup4 with pupee4b on eee took forever did not seem to install properly.tried to uninstall ,created other problems. so i refomatted hdc reinstalled pupee4b all is well now. i may try ezpup3 as it worked well on pupeee3
lobster i used desktop puppy3 to format usb key to fat 16 with gparted, then use universal installer to put pup on key. then you can boot usb key on the eee, use gparted to clean out xandros and delete the rest. create and partion eee to ext3 use univesal installer put puppy on the eee. oh and i ran pupeee4b live cd on desktop with puppy3. i have done the same thing using sd cards. i found out if your sd card or usb key seems to be buggered use gparted to reformat to fat16. once i cleaned out the hdc on my 2 gig eee and put pupeee i went from about 400mbs to 1.4g of free space i am very impressed, take care.

PostPosted: Sat 21 Jun 2008, 11:26    Post subject: Printing HP LJ2600
Subject description: How to make a printer work
 

I've installed pupeee on my EEE and it works really well (mainly I can connect to my wireless network)

The one thing I cant do is get printing to work with my HP LJ2600 (which
I could do with Xanadros). I've downloaded foo2zjs and compiled it (I had to install the devx301.sfs) before I could compile foo2zjs.

I then added to CUPS an hp2600n color lasterjet.

CUPS says that it is installed ok, but it wont print. If I look in the error log (/var/log/cups/error_log) the only error message I get is:

/usr/lib/cups/filter/foomatic-rip stopped with status 3!

Has anyone got an hp lj2600 to work with puppeee?
Am I doing something stupid?

Try typing in a console;

modprobe cdc-acm

then run Pupdial and probe for the modem,

also, look in /dev; & see if ttyACM0, or similar, is there

There is a serial tty setting somewhere, but its not my speciality

Else, see here, its pretty old, but may help

Bring up an rxvt console. Then type the following command:

cat /proc/pci


good luck

does that mean you can use it or only just see it?

I can only point you here:-

http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=29263&sid=da58516403776f9f6061fe39778a2b51

in the hope it can shed light, though for a different setup

I think someone else may need to take you further if you still need help, as it could be a ttyS0/1/2/3 problem, & may need a command line probe, or it may be incomplete usb modules loading
but you'll have to give clear details as to what is happening, in sequence, as you try things, thanks

NB: I suggest you ask the mods to move this to beginners help as
'usb modem problem in pupeee4'
as otherwise it's a bit of a hijack - see thread title
