    Exclamation Having a problem with Damn Small Linux

    Hey guys, i was screwing around with my compter and trying all my live cd's and came across Damn Small Linux 4.4.10. When i booted from it, i didn't get a desktop. Instead i got some message along the lines of "No KNOPPIX filesystem found, you will be taken to a (Very Basic) SHell. It was close to that anyway. Now, i have seen all these DSL Vs Puppy arguments on other forums. I have tried puppy and now i want to try dsl. But i can't get the CD to boot to the desktop. Btw if it matters my Laptop is a HpG62 Notebook Pc with a 500GB internal hardrive. And 2 Gigs o' RAM.
    If Anyone could help that would be much appreciated.

    Hi,

    I have tried the DSL for short period of time but I don`t remember such error while loading. Are you sure that your installation is not broken? Can you try installing/running it from usb flash drive ? Tell me if you need more info.

    Umm, i burned the ISO to a disc. I haven't tried installing it to USB yet. I will see if that fxes it. I was trying to run off of a live disc. :/ I might download it again.

    What about trying its replacement, Tiny Core, and seeing what happens?
