Very Happy Hello,
@ Regarding installing a Puppy from the MultiPup CD/DVD...
I was finally able to get a few cd-r`s and test my hunch...
While running a Puppy from the live CD/DVD....
Mount the CD..
Run the Universal Installer...
When asked where are the Puppy files, choose directory..
Navigate to the mounted CD..(In my case, /mnt/dev/sr0)
Open the directory of your chosen Pup.
Click on one of the needed files, is initrd.gz
Continue with the Universal Installer...
I have tested this repeatedly....
It works fine....Directories created, menu.lst in /tmp/newgrubtext, etc...
Feedback...???

Very Happy Hello,
The ever vigilant CatDude has pointed something out to me:

If run from within a pupsave, MultiPup returns "unknown" not the "ext2/ext3"
it looks for...
I could change it so that as long as it doesnt return "msdos" it would be satisfied..
But, would anyone really want to run it from inside a pupsave...I hesitate to make it able to.. If the user had less than 1.4 gb free space, MultiPup would overflow their save file, and could severely damage their Puppy...
Unless someone sees any reason to enable the possibility, I`ll probably just change the readme and instructions to include an "outside of your `pupsave` " comment..
Jay...

Good Day All!
puppyluvr;
Used MultiPup10, created Multipup.iso with 2 iso's and all seemed to go as
expected. However upon booting stalled at; "grub_" 'Minimal BASH-like line editing is supported'. Message?
Any clues?
Attempted an install from 1 of the disks made from Multipup8 last night after reading your post. This was not clear to me;
Quote; Click on one of the needed files, is initrd.gz
Continue with the Universal Installer...
As when I clicked on initrd.gz the installer seemed to close and a message
about expanding in this directory appeared. It was late!

Any help? Thanks as always!

Bob

Very Happy Hello,
When "chosen" from within the Universal Installer, initrd.gz should not try to expand.....Only from within rox....From within the UI, it should just `highlight` and then you click "OK":

Woof-Woof
Thanks puppyluvr;
As it turns out the disk I made this morning was bad!
Just made a new one and it works a treat.
I was also able to do a frugal install, always done a manual as I learned from a wink tutorial by the honorable CatDude. Witch BTW is missing in action.
Had no other problems, once I figured out the easiest way to get the needed files to the directory window was to grab one of the icons and just drag on in there, Then highlight the text Embarassed

Thanks so much! Great work!
I'll be keeping a eye on this Very Happy

If you are referring to the links in this thread: How to Manually create a Frugal Install of Puppy
i just checked them and they are working OK.
They were broken up until several weeks ago, when i fixed them to point at http://puppylinuxstuff.meownplanet.net instead of http://www.puppylinux.asia
which as you are probably aware, is (unfortunately) no longer with us.

Very Happy Hello,
Rebranded ver 10 as -1.0....
Have done a few GUI improvements and commented the scripts..

Other than minor changes, the 1.x Multipup series will be the last ones I can post here...( Appraoching the >1mb bloatware limit.. Very Happy )
The next series will be designated with a -2.x number, and will include changes for 1 and 2 series Puppies...
And will most certainly cross the 1mb limit...
When I release them, it will be thru a link to my meownplanet directory...
Till then...
Jay...

......


I just had a quick butchers in the Additional Software (PETs, n' stuff) section of the forum,
and found several packages posted that are bigger than 1MB.

Here are several examples:
vlc_nogui-0.8.6i-fixed.pet = 1.44 MB (bottom of first post)
goggles-mm-0.10.19.pet = 1.35 MB
me-091011.pet = 1.34 MB

So i reckon you should be OK for a while yet mate,
unless you have got some serious additions planned. Laughing

Puppyluvr,

Great piece of work you've done here! I had learned how to make a
multicd of Puppies (and DSL, Slitaz, Austrumi) about six months ago.
Learned alot in the process. It can be very tedious ensuring every
menu.lst is correct which is why your MultiPup is so great. However,
one thing I discovered making my own multicd was
it wouldn't work for a Puplet that had a zdrv.sfs as part of the
iso. And I never did figure out how to call that file within the boot
menu.lst to get it to load. So those Puplets never did work. I noticed the
same thing with your MultiPup. Will your next series MultiPup address
this? There are some great series 1 and 2 Puppies that I would like
to include on a DVD of MultiPup. Keep up the good work.

Thanks,
Yogi

Very Happy Hello,
@ Yogi,
Thank you, it has been fun building this..
Fun and frustrating...
And I`m in the process of adding 2 and eventually 1 series..
And its not the zdrv file, well not exactly, thats the problem....
The older series were only capable of going 1 level deep...
Meaning the files cant be in a subdirectory.. So no psubdir=
Meaning just 1 per cd... Mad
Well, I have a workaround in the works, but it will take a "minute".. Shocked
I can already put 1 series 2 and 1 series 1 per cd...
Be back....
@ Edit...
OK, so far I have this:
1 series one, unlimited series 2, providing they dont share a numerical sequence, ie pup-200 / pup-202 / pup215..etc...
Just tying it all together, and still under 1mb!!... Cool
Jay

Subject description: Plus!
 

Hello Everyone!

The first part of this is kind of off topic, and really has nothing to do with Multipup
witch works well when the hardware and disks co operate, but if anyone knows where it should go
I will gladly edit the post. At this point I am still not sure if it is just hardware or
what?
. O-k there is good news and there is bad news and then there is just news.
The good news is there dose not seem to be any thing wrong with my DVD-RW it will read + write to a dvd-r
The bad news is with the DVD-rom that came with it plugged in the dvd-rw will not work
as described below. Did try changing from cable select to slave/master and saw no change.

I did look in pburn + file + preferences + burn devices and selected the burner.

Being that this is a freshly repartitioned HD with only a remaster of 511 on it
and the fact that the DVD-RW wont read a cd-r or cd-rw/dvd-rw and in fact a blank of any of these lock’s the drive tray in until a reboot. ( even when the dvd-rom is unplugged)
Has anyone else seen any thing like this? If so please point me there.
Thanks in advance for any help!
I have had to work around it by swapping the drives in order to get one of the partitions populated with iso’s.
since any iso’s I have are on cd-r’s. Then dd them on to the HD , then plug the DVD-RW
back in to try out Multipup.
To further complicate things just got 25 memorex dvd-r disks that won’t work in either
of the dvd burners I have. However a 5pk of same from the local $ joint did.

Now just the news

puppyluvr;

I have been trying to keep track of witch iso’s will allow the CD/DVD drives
to be dismounted, so far only 5xx and waryxxx. but my testing is by no means
complete lol.
Has anyone been able to get a series 4.2-4.3 or dpup to turn loose of the CD/DVD tray?
Or is it just me ?

These two pup iso’s did not make it out of 14. The good news is my DVD-RW drive did
I have included some of the boot sequence in hope’s it might give you a clue.
If you need more just ask.

.Using MultiPup10, I’ll look at 1.0 after I finish sorting my hardware issues
Cloudy Skies-1.01-Puppy-301.iso
When creating the multipup.iso ‘failed to mount’ however the title did make it to the burned DVD
FatGamesPup dose load on the pc and work fine, did two levels of Duke nukem before I could
drag myself away from it.
But from the MultiPup.iso
FatGamesPup-216.iso
Starting from the last good line in the boot sequence;
#Mounting /dev/hdc on (/initrd)mntdev_ro1... done
#Mnt pup_216.fs off /dev/hdc... monting on (/initrd)pup_ro2... failed
#Dumping last lines of /tmt/bootinit.log..
#expr: syntax error
#[: -gt: argument expected
#/mnt/dev_ro1/pup_216.sfs: no such file or directory
#mount: ,mounting /dev/loop0 on /pup_ro2 failed

Hope there's some thing here that helps!

Thanks for all your efforts!

CatDude; Thanks for the new link, there is much more info than just frugal install in it.
It is a must have for a newbie wanting to know how to repartition a HD or set a boot flag or even understand what gparted is.
Got me around more than one of the curves
Ironic that finding the answer to what led me to your tutorial in the first place should be found here in this thread, ‘off topic as it may be ' a few more well placed words added to that installer window could make it a lot easier 'maybe to easy’

Unfortunate indeed Caneri’s contribution to this community was Great and will surely be missed for some time to come!

Thank You All!
Bob

Very Happy Hello,
Version 2 released here first...
[

Instructions for use:
Only for ext2/ext3 filesystems...
D/L and unpack anywhere on your hard drive,
where you have twice the size of your intended ISO free..
IE..for a 700mb ISO you will need 1.4bg free space..

After you have unpacked MultiPup, click on it
to open the MultiPup GUI...
If you try to run MultiPup from a non ext2/ext3 filesystem, (ie ntfs/fat)
a warning message will alert you and MultiPup will stop..

When you click the MultiPup icon, a GUI will open, with 7 buttons..

The first 4 buttons each open a directory for you to symlink your ISO`s / Classic ISO`s / Pets / SFS files into..
Symlink your ISOs, Pets, and SFS files and then click "OK"
When you click OK, the ISO`s will mount and copy into their directories..
When they are finished, click OK to proceed to the next step..

The 5th button opens the Bootsplash Chooser..
Choose a splash image and click "OK"
There is no default splash image, so you must choose one...

The 6th button lets you check your current ISO size..
Be sure that for a CD, your ISO`s and files do not total > 700mb
For DVD`s it is < 4gb I believe..
.
@ only 1 series 1 per disk...
@ As many of the series 2 that do not share a version number, ie 2.02, 2.16 etc.. as you want...

After you have symlinked your Puppies, Pets and SFS files
the 7th and last button will Create your ISO image,
and create a custom grub menu for each Puppy...

On the second tab are 4 buttons: Readme, Reset, Install and View..
Readme opens this file..
Reset returns MultiPup to its original state..

Install creates a pet customized for wherever you put MultiPup..
It makes a menu entry under Utility, desktop file, a script in /usr/local/bin, and registers with the Package Manager..
If you move MultiPup, you must uninstall the pet and re-run the Install program from the new location,
and then install the newly created pet..
As long as the MultiPup directory isnt moved, the same pet will "install" MultiPup on multiple Puppy installs. "Reset" does not delete the Pet..

The View button opens the MultiPup directory.

Wait for the "Your ISO is Created" message..
A rox window will open showing your ISO.
A dialog box will open for you to name your ISO..
Enter a name for your ISO in the box and click OK
After you name your ISO, an index file will be created in dvdsource along with your ISO, and on the CD/DVD as well..
After moving your ISO out of /dvdsource, click "OK"

Click "reset" in the GUI to delete the content
of /dvdsource and /files from the MultiPup directory,
and the symlinks from isos, pets, and sfs..
This will delete any ISO`s you have not removed..
You are all reset to do another...

@ This readme is included in the GUI @
Tested with:
1.08
1.09ce
2.00
2.02
2.15ce
2.17
@ Only 1 series 1 and as many 2 series that dont share a version # (ie 2.02, 2.14, 2.17 etc.) as you want..
Various 3, 4, and 5 series Puppies..
( @ Remember that Ttuuxxx`s 2.14x series has been updated, and goes in the normal directory..)
Testing and feedback needed...

@Edit: Uploaded MultiPup-2.2 with fix for menus, updated readme , buttons and dialogs... ...

@ Will test more, then move to first page...
Plesae test and report feedback...

Hi All!
Not much time, the Grandson shortly
Just gave MultiPup2alpha a spin.
A progress bar would be nice and a warning before it starts mounting iso's.
The first time I was trying to load the 2 series when it suddenly started So I
reset and started over.
ok only FatGamesPup+ puppy-215ce wary-500 made it to the MultiPup boot
menu at start up.
All 18 are listed in the index created with the iso. only 2 were 2xx
Estimate for this iso was 3.4gb but when the burn started pburn est. was 3.0
All 3 iso's booted
Tried to boot from boot options by typing the name of one of the others in
but only went to the one that was highlighted. Your are off to a good start!
Edit; also this this disk would not boot on the pc it was created on
but did on one that has a dvd rom + cd-rw only I have had that happen a few Times in the past. My weird equipment again I guess?

I can look at it again tonight

Good luck with it !
Bob
