Slacko 64 is not at final release stage. It is still in development. At best it is beta quality.

This version is the latest being developed

I've selected the 'universal installer' in Slacko64 Live CD.

I've manually edited the existing grub.cfg (as part of Lubuntu14.04 installation) and added this menu entry.

Please let me know, What i need to do to correct this.

You are talking about grub2 and you should use:

Code:
menuentry "Puppy Linux 5.8.7 full install" {
set root=(hd0,8)
linux /vmlinuz pmedia=atahd
}


The right way is to edit /etc/grub.d/40_custom inserting the menu entry and then in console:

Code:
sudo update-grub


(in Lubuntu).

Same error. I've tried it.

Quote:
menuentry "Puppy Linux 5.8.7 full install" {
set root=(hd0,Cool
linux /vmlinuz pmedia=atahd


Now it saying file system root not found. Seems like 'root' is mandatory.

So tried the below.

menuentry "Puppy Linux 5.8.7 full install" {
root (hd0,7)
linux /vmlinuz pmedia=atahd root=/dev/sda8 rw rootwait}

No telling the same old issue 'intrid' not found.

I'm not expert of full install. Try:

Code:
menuentry "Puppy Linux 5.8.7 full install" {
set root=(hd0,8)
linux /boot/vmlinuz pmedia=atahd
}


If the partition is sda8 then you must use "8" in grub2. Where is vmlinuz in a full install?

EDIT: try also this in lubuntu's /etc/grub.d/40_custom:

Code:
menuentry "Puppy Linux 5.8.7 full install" {
set root=(hd0,8)
linux /boot/vmlinuz root=/dev/sda8 pmedia=atahd
}

Grub2 has OS-Prober. I know grub2 from ubuntu lucid: I don't know if there are changes in 14.04. Read:

http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=631019#631019

In my experience of grub2 from lucid the following menuentry in /etc/grub.d/40_custom should work (remember "sudo update-grub"):

Code:
menuentry "Puppy Linux 5.8.7 full install" {
set root=(hd0,8)
linux /boot/vmlinuz root=/dev/sda8 pmedia=atahd
}

Please note that, the issue is not with the grub. Everytime, grub properly detects the 'Slacko64' OS and loads the 'vmlinuz' up to this time ,there is no issue at all.

Once 'vmlinuz' get loaded, it complains about 'intrid' not found and whatsoever. So the issue is with 'Slacko64' full install, as it does not consider the install as a Full Install. I've used the 'Full Install' option from the universal installer.

So please some one help me with this 'Slacko64' issue ? (Not Grub related)

Try to tell to grub2 the initrd:

Code:
menuentry "Puppy Linux 5.8.7 full install" {
set root=(hd0,8)
linux /boot/vmlinuz root=/dev/sda8 pmedia=atahd
initrd /boot/initrd.gz
}


Make sure in your /boot dir in the full install there is initrd.gz.

Hi avarghese,
Did Slacko64 boot OK from the CD? You might have better luck with a Frugal Install, as Puppy will be operating more like it does when booting from CD. I have seen (in an earlier version of Puppy) where a Full Install triggered Kernel Panic and wouldn't boot, but on the same PC a Frugal Install (of the same version of Puppy) worked flawlessly.

Ok. So this means Slacko64 having some issue with FullInstall, though it says to support it.

We're managed to Full Install FatDog64 and it works flawlessly as per the below manual.

http://my-techno-arena.blogspot.com/2014/07/full-installation-of-fatdog64-64-bit.html

We does not prefer a Frugual Install, as decompressing the intrid is a performance hit. Full Install typically works faster, as no decompressing involved.
