Hey Joe

I got SlaxerPup to boot from USB Razz

I've added a 'sleep 3' in init and it now works. I tried different delays and 3 seconds was the the minimum delay that would work on my slowest PC, the eBox-2300 with its 200MHz Pentium-class CPU.

I've attached the modified initrd.gz. Just replace the initrd.gz on the USB stick with this one and it should boot now Cool



Paul (pakt)

Great news!

I was away on a mini vacation to Puerto Vallarta Mexico
just got back great to hear you got the USB worked out to boot up

A big thanks Paul
I always need a clear head and a lot of free time to poke around in the initrd so thats welcomed news

maybe a USB puppy option would speed things up since you tell it were to look already Wink

something like this I will work on it too
#puppy pfix=usb

so you only look there thus speed up the boot

Yes, I agree. I haven't done any debugging of init for years Shocked

Good idea. Although a USB option wouldn't speed up detection of USB devices, it could bypass searches on other drives afterwards and save time that way. I think it's worth putting in - may not be too hard Cool

I'm guessing it's the "hugesmp.s" kernel... smp support Wink

Hej micko. Sorry, I missed your post.

I also thought that would be obvious - 'hugesmp.s' for smp support, but I seem to recall reading about problems running that kernel on old, single-core machines. They would hang with that kernel and only the 'huge.s' would work.

The funny thing is that SlaxerPup with its smp support runs on all the old hardware I have including the eBox-2300 thin client with its 200Mhz, pentium-class CPU Shocked

Hi Paul,

I have Slackware 12.2 installed on my Athlon 2100+ and it goes fine with "hugesmp.s".

Same box with Slaxer_Pup.

Slaxer_Pup also works just fine on my K6 400MHz, and my lappy... celeron 1GHz.

I have 2 others to check out but they are newer, neither multicore though Sad .

I am due for a HW upgrade soon, might try an Athlon 64... or whatever they call them these days.

Cheers

Mick

original post so you don't need to look for it
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=41298&start=74

get this pet package first its the package management tool for *.tgz
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?mode=attach&id=18215
--------------------------------------------------------------------
example how to install a package using slackware package tools
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=41298&start=81



install the latest network wizard
http://www.puppylinux.asia/tpp/big_bass/Slackware_Packages/network-wizard-apr-1st-i486-slxr.tgz


I'll look into the GLX
I am not using a nvidia card myself

compiling nvidia was done from source code and build scripts
also having the kernel headers and kernel source
so thats a lot more work to set up correctly
I compiled all the nvidia packages on slaxer_pup with the devx 412
----------------------------------------------------
for other apps I need to compile
*src2pkg is a very powerful tool I use for keeping apps up to date
and thats what I use it for the main advantage is you compile on
your system thus having the best compatibility you can maintain
slaxer_pup up to date

instead of the mix and match that takes place when you take packages
and libs from different distros and versions and different configurations

thank you Joe!

the wifi card didnt work same as before, after reinstall the network-wizard-apr-1st-i486-slxr and reboot.

recompling glx is too difficulty for me, so i'll wait. that's not big problem for me. Smile

thanks again.

hi Joe
thank you for your hard works, the new firmware tarball had been installed on Slaxer_pup_412, but i could not make my wifi card work.
thanks again.

my wifi card works fine on these distros:
ubuntu 8.10, kernel 2.6.27.7;
puppy 4.2, kernel 2.6.25.16 with the newest firmware;
slitaz cooking 20090228 recompiled kernel with iwl4965 module and the newest firmware;
upup 476, kernel 2.6.29.4 with the newest firmware;


and i googleed slackware 12.2 and iwl4965 in linuxquestion, there was only one case about some problem. i was confused.

Paul (pakt)

A big thank you for your hacked initrd.gz file. I am now testing my sons lenovo thinkpad 2gig celery w/2gig ram. Everything is instant! Booting took about 20 seconds (once I figured out the bios Rolling Eyes ) I made the usb install on an old PIII I first fired up today with no harddrive. First i tried it on the wifes doze box and it failed. Then I remembered you got it to go. Read your post, got the initrd and here I am. I've no idea how to edit an initrd file, I cant even open it! All I could see was a bunch of 0's and other numbers with a few recognisable words and numbers.

Any way, it's working great, thanks again.

Cheers

Well guys
I am making some packages for slaxer_pup
some will be in *tgz format and some as pets
really the only reason for pets is for new users
and die hard puppy users Very Happy
but the slackware package tool is "lite speed"
for installing and removing packages and a quick view
of what was installed so worth learning

I modified the slackware package tools to handle
jwm and ice window managers
I will upload that package too

so you can get more comfortable with
those old world standard tools


I have made numerous modifications to slaxer pup
and I am building packages so you can test them
I am branding the packages with a "-i486-slxr"

so you know I tested them and built them for slaxer pup

I made a new folder everything will be in here to keep it easy
http://www.puppylinux.asia/tpp/big_bass/slaxer_pup_packages/

as for updated iso's
good things are in the making


here's some custom built and patched stuff
I patched these for slaxer pup but they should work fine on a standard 412 too

gimp photo shop very rare
http://www.puppylinux.asia/tpp/big_bass/slaxer_pup_packages/gimphoto-1.4.3-patched-i486-slxr.pet

xnview with custom made mime types added in (image viewer/converter many formats )
http://www.puppylinux.asia/tpp/big_bass/slaxer_pup_packages/XnView-1.70-patched-i486-slxr.pet

geany -0.17
http://www.puppylinux.asia/tpp/big_bass/slaxer_pup_packages/geany-0.17-i486-slxr.pet

sakura 2.3.2 terminal plus required libs use all three
after using sakura you'll never go back to rxvt
http://puppylinux.asia/tpp/big_bass/slaxer_pup_packages/libxcb-X11R7patch3-i486-slxr.pet
http://puppylinux.asia/tpp/big_bass/slaxer_pup_packages/vte-0.16.12-i486-slxr.pet
http://puppylinux.asia/tpp/big_bass/slaxer_pup_packages/sakura-2.3.2-i486-slxr.pet


I got in the mood for some art work Very Happy
