As I know you offer Precise in 2 versions; one of which is Precise-571JP, I offer this idea for booting into the 2 languages you currently support.

Open the attached file in a text editor AS IS!

Hope this helps

I installed the newest version.
A full install of Quirky tahr by Barry Kauler . The result --->

I include the terminal output if you're interested.

It did work with Tahrpup and Racy distros.


I have a suggestion:

I have a lot of frugal installations so the list of operating systems
available is very long and I can't see the OK button at the end of the list.
I have to use alt key. So I suggest putting the OK button at the top or side of window.

Sub_title: Scrolling list of Pups? or 'OK' top button.

G'day shinobar,

I was about to go searching this thread but don570 has exactly my problem.

I was trying to rescue an old hard drive, which had more than 20 Frugal Puppies plus about ten Puppy Fulls. I was removing old Windows & Ubuntu partitions through which the hard drive had been booting.

I installed a new Pup to sda1 but when I tried to set up Grub4Dos, the Puppy list (box) went off the bottom of the screen and I could not 'Move' or 'Resize' the box to see the 'OK' button.

A scroll bar for the listing would be good so all the possible Puppies could be seen, but if that is too difficult or time-consuming, I too would appreciate the 'OK' button at the top of the dialog box.

Thanks & regards,
David S.

Running Tahrpup 6.0 CE
Puppy Universal Installer to do a frugal install on a hard drive.
When you get to the point of naming the install location.
It gives as an example "puppyfiles/pup6.0" for a name to use for location of the frugal install.
If you use that name.
Grub4dos config(v1.9.2) does not recognize that name as a Puppy install location.
No entry will be made in the menu.lst for that frugal install.

If you use the default location name "tahr6.0frugal".
Grub4dos config finds it and puts entry in menu.lst

One not working is two directories deep, if that has anything to do with it.

I have found, in trying to help people, that the things they do not tell you, are usually the clue to solving the problem.
