Hello,

I'm new to this forum hoping I can learn something about Linux.

I installed Lucid Puppy 5.1 and everything went good until it asked me to save a file. I was reading the list and the screen changed before I could choose something, now when I boot from the CD I get the above error. I tried all the options in boot options and nothing worked. Hopefully, someone can steer me in the right direction to fix this.

I did use the search function, but I didn't find anything that pertained to my situation.

Kind Regards,

Rilla927

LiveCD was recorded in multisession mode to record personal pup_sav file?

Oh gosh, I'm sorry, I thought I posted that....

I'm using the live cd. At the end when I was going to shut down it asked where to save the file; by the time I was done reading the choices it changed to another screen. So I tried rebooting the disc again and got the error. I really like this distro

It's not a multisession disc, it's finalized.

Rilla927:

If you are using a laptop and then saved to a cd
you're hosed.

Most laptops use cut down cd-dvds and they fail to reboot.

If you can boot into Windows check your hard drives
properties >> for the amount of free space.
I f you have sufficient space on a partition or drive
then create a Folder called

1 Test Puppy or similar.

This will sit at the top of your hard drive,
as numerals generally show up first before letters.

When you can burn another disk
( if it is a laptop issue )
and boot into Puppy
click on the drives to see if your new folder shows up.

That is the drive to save to.
Make a note of the name...write it down.

Puppy will also ask you to copy the >> sfs file >> to that drive.
Let it do that for a fast boot.

Your drives might show as SDA1 etc.
256 will do as a save file >>> for testing.

Always best to post your hardware specs.

I know that this is mainly for Puppy 4.3.1
but halfway down the page you will see pics of the hard drives
showing up in Puppy on the bottom of the desktop.

Always unmount drives when shutting down.

Some laptops can have 4 partitions -
3 of them hidden.

Never save anything to them.

This is a desktop. I never had a chance to save the file cuz the screen changed. I did burn another disc and it does the same thing. I did make a folder on D drive for Puppy. I will try the Test Puppy, but I don't remember seeing that option. I'm running Vista 32bit.
Edit: I'm trying to upload .rar file.

My hardware specs are attached. Thank you.

I tried uploading my hardware specs and it says it doesn't take .txt files.

Edit:

Okay, I tried to boot the disc again and I hit F2 for boot options and there is a bunch of options written in red. I have tried all of them and nothing worked. If I don't choose boot options I automatically get the error.

It says can't find kernel image and then it starts scanning the drives and then the files and this is when it throws up the error reading:

lupu-510.sfs not found
Drop ping out to initial ramdisk console in red
/bin/sh; can't access tty; job control turned off

So you boot from the LiveCD, right?
When you push F2 type puppy pfix=ram.
Then do your configuration.

At the end of the session (f.e. doing a reboot) you do get the panel asking if you want to save.

What happens then?

Yes, I'm booting from a Live CD. I used pfix=ram and I stll get the:
lupu-510.sfs not found

/bin/sh; can't access tty; job control turned off

No, I only got the panel where it asked to save the file the first time I booted it up and after that I get the error. Can't make it to the desktop.

Where did this file go? I checked my other drives and found nothing.

What happens then?

Check the size of lupu-510.iso and make sure the MD5 is correct through gtkhash if the size looks good.

Could be a corrupt ISO.

EDIT: don't boot from NTFS partitions, btw.

You speak of a first time save.
Where did you save the save file to?
To CD? To HDD?
If to CD is your CD a multisession open CD?
If not, nothing is saved I think.

@Iguleder

I did check that and it matched.

@Béèm

I mean the very first time I booted the disc. I never got a chance to save it cuz the screen changed on me by the time I had finished reading the options and ever since I get the error.

The CD was finalized, no multisession.

So to resume
You boot from the LiveCD
You get the desktop and you can work.
You end the session and you get the panel to create a save file, but it disappears before you can take an action.
Right all this?

I really don't have an idea.
I don't think this issue has been raised before.

The best advice I can give is post the problem in the special 5.10 thread in the bugs section.
You will have much more attention also from the developers.

Actually that issue hs been raised before.

This is exactly how my problem started, when being asked where to store the personal data file. Screen zoomed into next mode and guess I hit wrong option as well. Glad to see I'm not the only one who got into trouble with that.

Shouldn't that become an issue which needs looking into?
