you enable the top three items with a "y" so that it is all compiled within the kernel to allow booting from your scsi drives.

Yes, you have achieved success here by enabling the MPT support directly within the kernel image.
A more elegant solution would be to rebuild the initrd with the MPT modules included externally, as is standard Puppy (and Linux) practice. But of course, this involves more work.

Well, I should have said "that way, you will not have to rebuild your initrd". You are right though tempestuous. I know that more items enabled into the kernel image makes it larger, but this is only a couple of items and not too much larger. I guess that adding much more support would make compiling as modules and rebuilding the initrd much more worthwhile. I thought, however, that support for a specific boot device would have to be built in or or the kernel would not be able to find the initrd image if placed on that drive (or the /lib/modules directory for full install).

@ whatupuppy: The message shown in your attached image typically means that puppy cannot find your <PupletName>_<VersionNumber>.sfs file. It will look on a hard drive first but refer to the cd if not there. This file on your cd may be corrupt or unreadable for some reason. Not sure how old your laptop is, but if it is really old, it may have a scsi cdrom drive that most puppy kernels (or initrd's) will not support.

PostPosted: Sun 20 Feb 2011, 15:49    Post subject: SCSI on this ISO's LiveCD  

@PupGeek and @Tempestuous thanks for your explanation of what's needed to talk to the HDDs in my DELL server. There are so many DELL and IBM servers which use SCSI and LSI, that I'm kind of surprised that it may have been overlooked here. I ahve a DELL 1600 with P4s server and an IBM P3s rack mount, each with SCSI, but unable to get this LiveCD to see the HDDs.

All SCSI machines that I have encountered over the past 10 years have more that enough RAM that a LiveCD with this support, RAM should not have been a concern. But, ....

Thanks for your help. If this ISO is extended, this might be something included for use on 32bit SCSI Puppy machines.

64bit SCSI Puppies will probably have this when they surface. SCSI seems to have shown up on ONLY 2 types of systems in my past. Customers who run servers, and customers who do drafting-engineering on workstations. In each of these cases, there is so much RAM available, that Adaptec, LSI will not be a problem in the OS, as, I would think that they would have this included and not stripped-down.

Thanks for helping me thus far. I appreciate it, the explanations, and your understanding.

Is the development of 4.3.2-SCSI 2.6.30.5 full older modem support finished?

In another thread which was discussing updating Puppy 4.3.1

I was going to mention 4.3.2 earlier in this thread, but then remembered sending a recent pm to ttuuxxx in which he replied that it was strictly a bugfix version, and that he's no longer supporting it.

Is there going to be an unbroken iso or anything else coming out of this project? The way I read the first entry of this thread V2 is broken and is a lot more than "a bugfix".

I'm not trying to pressure on anyone but I would like to know -- Are we going to get anything useable out of this project?

Edit:

Ok it looks like its a go for this weekend as a start,
I'm not going to use woof, I'm going to manually edit the sfs and build the iso's.

I hope that something will come out of this?

Subject description: Barry replaced it with Wary Puppy 5
 

I think the distro-that-was-never-born 4.3.2 is dead, while Barry already replaced it with Wary Puppy 5 (now updated to 5.1.1)
