I've done a frugal install of 511 and on first boot it went straight
to the desktop.
I configured the network,then ran the puppy universal installer and
did a frugal install to sda1.
I ran grub4dos,then rebooted and had the save file go to /puppy511 on sda1.
I renamed the fatdog 510 devx file and also increased the size of my
save file by 512mb,then rebooted.

I booted the live cd "fatdog nomodeset pfix=vesa,ram".
I configured the network then ran the universal installer and did a
frugal install.
I downloaded and installed the nvidia-260.19.21-for-510-only.pet, and
restarted x.
I then ran grub4dos and rebooted having the save file
go to puppy511 on sdb3.
I renamed the fd64-devx_510.sfs to fd64-devx_511.sfs and used the
configure startup of puppy wizard to have it loaded the next bootup.

Got this installed on my Acer eMachines netbook - Atom N450, 1GB RAM. Working very beautifully - Xorg, wifi, sound, all works great. I'm a very happy man.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year everyone.

SD card driver for my fellow M350 owners. The card reader is ENE, driver is already in staging in 2.6.36 and will be released on 2.6.37 (this is according to Ubuntu guy who helped to provide the kernel module source).

Meanwhile, you can use this on 511.

cheers!

@Kirk, Check your PM

Booted FATDOG64-511 LiveCD. I opened a text file for edit via the filemanager; namely /root/my-documents/console.log.txt. This opened in Geany. Next, I tried to open a 2nd file using its "absolute path" (namely /mnt/sda1/save-console.log.txt). This is done within the Geany window, clicking File>Open>fill-in location entry with the path-filename.
Code:
Geany generates an error message at bottom of its window as follows: Could not open file /root/my-documents/ /mnt/sda1/save-console.log.txt (No such file or directory)


Also, tested your SAMBA 3.5.6 PET for consistency. Instructions for sharing files with LAN user from FATDOG are still consistent with this release. I have NOT had ANY issues with your SAMBA PET use of FATDOG. You may want to add this to the FATDOG PPM now. (I expect to produce a Guide for users who might want to use FATDOG as their network's domain controller to avoid having to pay vendors thousands of dollars for this feature at the end of this month...All things considered.

Here's what the system looks like with LIveCD running and sharing 3 folders with users constantly writing to it..
Code:
-Computer-
Processor      : 2x AMD Athlon(tm) 64 X2 Dual Core Processor 4600+

Hope this helps

PostPosted: Thu 06 Jan 2011, 21:12    Post subject:  

Once a while, when shutting down, I get the message "Disabling Interrupt #19" and the laptop will freeze, requiring a hard poweroff (pressing the power button 4 seconds or more). Looking at /proc/interrupts, IRQ 19 corresponds to my UHCI/EHCI usb controller, and true enough, these happens when I have been plugging something to the usb port (wireless mouse, usb harddisk, usb flash, etc) - but not every time. Sometimes it shut down properly.

Google says the problem is caused by spurious interrupts, or unhandled interrupts - can be anything from bad hardware (suggestion is to replace PCI card, move PCI card to another slot, or to disable onboard sound if the IRQ is hooked to onboard sounds etc), or can be because of bad driver. In my case, it's a laptop, so nothing can be moved or replaced, and it works fine with fd64-500 using the previous kernel, so I suspect something is a bit touchy in the USB driver of this kernel. This happens not only on my usual machine, it also happens in the M350 netbook (Atom N450-based).

Has anyone else encountered similar issue, and got any clue to stop this from happening?

Is it documented somewhere which folders will be saved at the end of a session so that they will be restored upon LiveCD reboot?
Thanks in advance

The official documentation is here http://puppylinux.com/multi-puppy.htm But it's rather old, and rather inaccurate as of now.
Another way is to look at the code - line 204 in /etc/rc.d/functions4puppy says that it will save everything except /tmp, /proc, /sys, /var, /initrd and /mnt.

Hope that helps.

This is the dnsmasq pet for those who needs it. No menu - this pet only contains dnsmasq binary (and a man page).

cheers!

My question of saving has to do with folders I want to set for LiveCD use that I consider to be "outside of" the delivered Puppy Linux fs. (for example "/Downloads").

Thanks JamesBond. This is a significant contribution, I think, to FATDOG64.
Thank you very much!

Another way is to look at the code - line 204 in /etc/rc.d/functions4puppy says that it will save everything except /tmp, /proc, /sys, /var, /initrd and /mnt.
Scenario: Create a /home folder in every folder on the root FATDOG filesytem. Reboot insuring to "Save to CD" the session additions and changes. Upon, reboot look at the resulting filesystem for the /home folders added before reboot.
Results: My personal testing shows: FATDOG LiveDVD reboots will
  • NOT Save ANY new folder created on root (eg /home)
  • Save any folder created in /root, /lib, and /usr
Hope this helps others
