P.S. Seeker, your installer helped me out of a really tight spot at an important meeting yesterday. I understand it is responsible for Puppy-Linuxing another cybercafe in nearby in Goole also.

Many thanks

Oh yes Very Happy Very Happy

Just what I wanted, now I can give this out to friends and tell them to play away to their hearts content. I don't have to go round and 'help' them install. Laughing

I tried it out myself with the 421 edition and it installed on an XP laptop OK, however it took a second boot to get the selection menu. No biggy. (Maybe I missed it first time, too quick, I had looked round and it was XP again)

Barry should really look at this for the main Puppy site. More converts I'm sure.

We could edit the download page at puppylinux.org ourselves and put it up there...unless there are any objections?

Perhaps Seeker, a useful feature for the next version would be to give users the choice of having Puppy or XP as the default at bootup.

Tried to do Puppy 214R from tuxxx but no joy because of the sub-directory requirement.

Can't get GP_Builder to create a sub-directory in Program Files group.

OK, now done Barrys Puppy430 and it works beautifully, so simple.

One niggle, the failed builds although uninstalled correctly have left menu entries in bootloader.

Edited menu.lst and removed them.

One suggestion, after a Puppy install is completed would it be possible to add a dialogue box 'do you wish to restart to choose Puppy'

Similar to the 'Your computer needs to be restarted to see changes'

tasmod, a work around for 2.14X would be to move the pup_214x.sfs file it uses down a directory level to C:\ . You might need to remove the psubdir arguement also.

Im going to be looking at the initrd.gz file this weekend hopefully to add the psubdir and netbooting facilities newer pups have.

Perhaps a simpler approach would be to have version of the installer that does not use subdirectories for older puppies rather than having to hack code each time its needed...once packaged the user would be non the wiser.

According to davesurrey 214R uses different menu.lst entries to boot from a subdir.

It looks like you need to change
Code:
kernelstr = "kernel (hd0,0)/" + installDir +"/vmlinuz psubdir=" + installDir

to
Code:
 kernelstr = "kernel (hd0,0)/" + installDir +"/vmlinuz root=/dev/ram0 psubdir=" + installDir
 

in install-puppy.bas near line 335 to set that as default. Haven't tried it though.

That is an option in your GP-Install project. Load the pup-installer.gpi and select Dialogs/Extensions, click the Dialogs tab, select the 'Setup Complete' dialog, then click the 'Show the Restart Windows dialog' radio button. Click OK and save it. I haven't tested it so I don't know if it works for all versions of Windows.

The Puppy subdir can only be one level deep. That's a Puppy requirement, not mine. If a puplet is made that can go more than 1 level deep the code can be changed in pup-install.bas to allow it.

Hi I still havnt got round to updating the init script for 2.14x. There has been some progress by someone else with this..but I believe it doesnt use the puppy standard.

I also still havnt got round to installing the .exe make myself yet Embarassed BUT I WILL!

If someone is experimenting with it, I would be grateful if they would make an .exe package for the kids educational puppy derivitive HanSamBen. It is a remastered 4.12 so shouldnt pose many problems I dont think.

http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=41454

I would be happy to host this (and more) installers as they become available.
