I've checked all my drives.

Gone through dvds and cds.

Spent hours looking for this plus the net.

So whoever has one please upload it to 2shared
and post the link.

http://www.2shared.com/

I get confused. I had uploaded this

http://www.2shared.com/qs/1/puppy-431-NOP.iso

but that's not Boxpup is it?

Downloads are on the bottom of the page at 2shared.

Save file to your PC: click here

"""""""""""

Discussion is here.
Can someone please help out?
I've more than done my bit.

Subject description: Gets to "searching for Puppy files . . ."
 

I made a frugal install on sda1:

# Boxpup begins
title Boxpup frugal on sda1
root (hd0,0)
kernel /boxpup/vmlinuz root=/dev/sda1 ro
initrd /boxpup/initrd.gz
# Boxpup ends

The bootup stops at "searchg for Puppy files . . ."

Boxpup-431 is for older hardware.
It was made available HERE in 2009.

What year of manufacture is your PC hardware?

It's a Dell Optiplex GX520, Pentium 4. I think it was manufactured about 2004.

@davec51. Here's my boot stanza for BoxPup 431 - if it's of any use.
Quote:
title Puppy-431-BoxPup
find --set-root --ignore-floppies /Puppy-431-BoxPup/initrd.gz
kernel /Puppy-431-BoxPup/vmlinuz pmedia=atahd psubdir=Puppy-431-BoxPup acpi=force pfix=fsck
initrd /Puppy-431-BoxPup/initrd.gz
#End

a. Hmm, I wonder if that's too old even for Boxpup-431?
I have puppy-413-boxpup.iso if you want to try it.

b. I wonder why Boxpup-431 can't find its files?
I'm no Puppy expert.
Is it installed on sda1 connected via a PATA controller with a bootloader in use, and does the partition have the boot flag set?
Formatted as what?
Installed in the root directory?
Or further down?

Subject description: Can't find Puppy files
 

My partition is ext4. The bootloader is GRUB1, on which I point to several Linux systems of various kinds. I always install Puppies frugally, because it's so easy, with a folder on the sda1 root. Another Puppy, Fluxpup, is already there and boots uneventfully.
It may be that Boxpup is not for this machine.

Puppies from the 4-series may not support ext4.

My machine dates from 2003, and I'm posting this from Boxpup 431 (Darry's expanded version from January), so I wouldn't have thought so.

Also, it will read the ext4 filesystem (the earlier Pups won't though).

Subject description: Wireless connection, no problem. Audio snd_ctl_open not found
 

Kernel changed on boxpup431 to 3.1.10 PAE Slacko XFCe 5.3.3
Wireless connection, no problem.
audio not working snd_ctl-open no such device.

Laptop 2012.
Process : how to switch the kernels, from this Murga forum.
Dommage qu'il n'y ait pas le son......
libsndfile1_1.0.21-3squeeze1_i386.deb froma rchive.org is the solution, i suppose. Trying opening it fails.
1 mns later ok, but
alsamixer: function snd_ctl_open failed for default: No such device
# retrovol
Unable to open card hw:0: No such device

Alsaconf finds it all is ok. I think the problem is timing. Something is running which prevents installing audio.
