I've never had a lot of luck with sd cards in Puppy. Sometimes it is visible on the desktop, other times not. I've never been able to mount it. After a while I gave up on the things.

Maybe you could compare your dmesg not using the pupsave, with the dmesg while using it. Might tell you something...

it is seen if i boot without loading save file.


The way it reads to me, it does see, recognize sdb and sdb1

You should try different APCI settings

pci=use_crs

Maybe later cgroup_disable=memory

Of course run e2fsck as needed

And, most important is: Where is the Puppy save file?

PostPosted: Sun 07 Nov 2010, 04:05    Post subject: here is a more complete run down of howit happened  

on the eeepc i keep puppeee 1.0 installed on sda1 the internal ssd and a clone of it on sdb1 (ok, i didnt update it as often as i should have, hence wanting to keep the sda1 save file!) this gives me a good level of redundancy in case of disaster: i can always boot and load save file from sdb1 instead.

the point at which it screwed up was when i removed the sd card and booted into lupu 511 from a usb flash drive and used the pc to install lupu to another external usb hard drive i later needed to wipe and replace xp on a friends machine (xp 0, lupu 1: spreadin tha word)

when i was in lupu, without my sd card in (to avoid loading save file) the usb flash became sdb1, sda1 was still sda1, and the usb hdd was sdc1.

all went ok and i shut down with the menu (didnt separately dismount sdb1 cos i was running from it)

when i rebooted into my usual config puppeee from the sda1 ssd and replaced the usual sd card in its slot, only sda1 came up in the desktop icon, pmount, and even gparted.

i dont fully understand the outputs from dmesg except that it tells what is in the computer regardless of the state of the os.... yeah?

its a major block to my learning that i need explaining to me the route by which the os finds, identifies and mounts a drive. i know it must be something to to with the /mnt or /dev directories.

as i am converting a lot of people to puppy from slow windoze it is important i know the process, reason, and correct cure to this common issue.

Few people fully understand everything, I sure don't. Be easy on yourself,
operating system 'mastery' is a huge task, one that can take years.

Worse it's an impossible task, because even if you understood everything, it
would change tomorrow.

Understandable. I leave a USB 500GB drive plugged in always. And it always
has the same Linux device letter/number assignment.

However, if I plug and unplug USB devices when Linux is running, it
changes device letter/number assignments.

First, let's figure out what is what and how it is recognized after the computer is booted.

We use the command line utility fdisk with the lowercase -L switch, like this:

fdisk -l

Here is my output:

This utility can tell you a lot. If you need specific help about mounting and
testing the supposed missing partition and device, then post what fdisk
shows
.

Maybe we can find it and test both the partition and the pup save file.

And of course mount it as needed.

drspastic,

The first thing we want to do is check the filesystem integrity.

We are not checking the drive, sda. We are checking the partition which is
sda1. We always check the partitions unmounted.

e2fsck -f /dev/sda1

After it is checked and cleaned you can mount it to use it and check the
pup_save file.

I'll presume names for sake of example, you will need to use actual names.

To mount sda1

mount -t ext3 /dev/sda1 /mnt/sda1

Where ext3 is the format type. It may be ext4 in your case?? Where
/mnt/sda1 is an actual directory. Where /dev/sda1 is the actual partition

Next to check the pup_save file

e2fsck -f /mnt/sda1/xyz/pup_save.2fs

You need to make /mnt/sda1/xyz/pup_save.2fs
correspond with the true name.

Then I suppose you'll have more questions, but I don't know what.

Good luck.

no mention of sdb but as you can see, i attached an external usb drive and it picked up as sdc....which is normal.

# e2fsck -f /mnt/sda1/eeesave-puppeee_1.3fs
e2fsck 1.41.9 (22-Aug-2009)
e2fsck: No such file or directory while trying to open /mnt/sda1/eeesave-puppeee_1.3fs

The superblock could not be read or does not describe a correct ext2
filesystem. If the device is valid and it really contains an ext2
filesystem (and not swap or ufs or something else), then the superblock
is corrupt, and you might try running e2fsck with an alternate superblock:
e2fsck -b 8193 <device>

Try with fsck instead of e2fsck

Are you sure there is a device still in the PC which could be eventually sdb1.
As per you initial post, you said that you removed devices.
Also your first fdisk -l only shows one device.
I am afraid you are chasing a phantom.

ok, i just reanamed the sda1 save file cos puppy cant mount 2 save files with the same name. then i copied /dev from the working system on sdb to the mounted savefile on sda1.
now going to reboot and see if it has repaired the problem.

interested to know about checking filesystems on ext3 on disk and within shrunken filesystems.

thanks for all the help so far...fingers crossed

Your explanations aren't very clear.
How can you copy from a device, which you claim doesn't exist.

ok, i will recap:
i have the same os installed on sda1 and sdb1. this is how i always do it as backup.

i can choose at boot what savefile to load, if any.

loading from the savefile on sda1 results in the problem that i have been describing: ie sdb1 does not appear, other than in the output of dmesg several posts above.
as it was suggested to try checking the filesystem of sda1 and the shunken filesystem within the savefile on sda1 and they must be unmounted to do this, i booted loading the savefile i keep on sdb1.
this savefile works ok and gives me sda1 and sdb1 (of course then sdb1 cannot be unmounted)
i use this known good system as a reference and to copy that /dev across to sda1 savefile.
did i mention that both sda1 and sdb1 have frugal installs?

until this fault first occured there was no problems with my setup and it is very stable. time to time after i change my setup or install new software on sda1 savefile (the one i usually boot from) and i am confident the system has remained stable, i copy the savefile from sda1 to sdb1, thus i have a clone of a perfect system on sd card incase there arises a problem on the internal ssd due to ...well whatever.

the only way this setup can fail is if both the ssd and sd card screw up at the same time!

now i know it will take seconds to restore my system to a previous good state by booting and loading sdb1 savefile then copying it to sda1 to replace the defective savefile there, but the point is that i want to see this through to a logical conclusion as to why the system failed and to repair it.

as far as i can deduce the linux kernel can see all the drives fine but the filesystem is damaged after being confused with the external usb devices and order i plugged them in.

my purpose here on the forum is to learn from you guys with more experience.
