    grub2 making friends with puppy (linux)

    Hey there!

    I have xubuntu 10.10, and just installed puppy linux on /dev/sda7.

    I'm having trouble updating grub, because it seems that grub doesn't find it at all.

    So I'm prepared to put in some serious coding in the grub.cfg file in case somebody can help me.

    For now, this is the only code I found floating around the forums, but it just doesn't feel right at all, especially the last 2 lines :

    HTML Code:
    # For booting GNU/Linux on dev/sda7 (H.D.D. primary partition)
    menuentry "Puppy Linux (on /dev/sda7)" {
            set root=(hd0,7)
            linux /puppy551/vmlinuz
            initrd /puppy551/initrd.gz
    
    }
    I mounted that partition in xubuntu:

    Code:
    /media/puppy$ ls 
    extlinux.conf  initrd.gz  lupu-511.sfs  vmlinuz

    So could anyone point me to the right direction?
    In case you need some more information, just say so

    thank you!

    Re: grub2 making friends with puppy (linux)

    Is this like a grub.cfg? extlinux.conf if so print it also as the script does not look for that file & print it.

    I do not understand the stanza you have:

    menuentry "Puppy Linux (on /dev/sda7)" {
    insmod part_msdos
    insmod ext2
    set root='(hd0,msdos7)'
    linux16 /media/puppy/vmlinuz
    initrd /media/puppy/initrd.gz


    /media/puppy is your mount point. It looks like the kernal & init are in the root of sda7 so the entry should be more like just /vmlinuz, but they almost always require parameters.

    The MultiBoot USB has this entry where it has copied the files to /boot/puppy. But the media is usbflash.

    MultiBoot USB with Grub2 (boot directly from iso files)
    Basically you just install grub2, create a folder for the isos and edit a grub.cfg to loop mount the isos.

    Re: grub2 making friends with puppy (linux)

    Well, I don't understand that stanza either I just deducted it, I'm just another noob, snooping around where I shouldn't

    I don't want to Multiboot USB, because I installed puppy linux on sda7, so, if anyone knows what to do to have that puppy linux installation in grub2 menu and to have it boot properly, please help me

    If you need some additional information, just say so!

    And thank you for the reply!

    Re: grub2 making friends with puppy (linux)

    OK, I have lupu-511.sfs booting from my flash drive sdd1 with grub2.

    I tried a variety of alternatives of the command line options that others had used and this worked but I may have some setting not quite right. I tried to get psubdir= option to work but the kernel would load and it would not find lupu-511.sfs. So I moved lupu-511.sfs to root of sdd1. I created /boot/lupu511 to hold all the other files. And my grub2 is in /boot/grub. When I boot I select sdd as boot drive and that then becomes hd0 in grub2. My system sees flash drives as usb hard drive.

    menuentry "Puppy 511" {
    set root=(hd0,1)
    linux /boot/lupu511/vmlinuz root=/dev/ram0 pmedia=usbflash loglevel=7 pkeys=us
    initrd /boot/lupu511/initrd.gz
    }

    Re: grub2 making friends with puppy (linux)

    Well, this is bigger then me, it seems.

    menuentry "Puppy 511" {
    set root=(hd0,1)
    linux /boot/lupu511/vmlinuz pkeys=us
    initrd /boot/lupu511/initrd.gz
    }

    this is what I tried in grub.cfg after I made a folder in /boot/ named lupu511

    Code:
    /boot/lupu511$ ls -a
    .  ..  extlinux.conf  initrd.gz  lupu-511.sfs  vmlinuz
    After boot, grub sees that there is a entry in the menu, but after I select it, it says, file not found, or something similar...

    My grub2 is also in /boot/grub, so as of from now they are on the same partition, marked as bootable...

    I don't know...

    Thank you anyway!

    Just a reminder: I'm trying to boot from my hard drive, not an usb-drive.

    Re: grub2 making friends with puppy (linux)

    MultiBootUSB will boot Puppy using grub2.
    I suggest that reviewing their script could be enlightening:

    Re: grub2 making friends with puppy (linux)

    Do you get kernel to load and then it says lupu-511.sfs not found? This was the error I consistently got until I moved the lupu-511.sfs up to the top level and removed the psubdir= entry.

    I did have to have the root=/dev/ram0. I tried both pmedia=usbflash and pmedia=atahd.

    Try an entry like this and if you still get a not found, put a copy of lupu-511.sfs in the top level of hd0,1. ( Same level as /boot folder)

    menuentry "Puppy 511" {
    set root=(hd0,1)
    linux /boot/lupu511/vmlinuz root=/dev/ram0 pmedia=atahd pkeys=us
    initrd /boot/lupu511/initrd.gz
    }
    For info on UEFI boot install & repair:
