    Puppy Linux problem


    Hi,
    We installed Puppy Linux on a thin client. We have faced some issues and are listed below:

    1. When we open terminal, the prompt does not show path.
    2. When a USB memory stick is inserted, it is not being recognized.
    3. When some script files (configuration) files are run, nothing is reported. Nothing at all, simply the prompt returns.

    Please help in resolving the above problems. Thank you for your time.

    Since you know what to look for. Since you know what version of Puppy you installed. Since you know whether this is a frugal or full install. Since you know the exact model number of your computer.

    Here ya go.

    I have a similar problem. I have loaded Puppy Precise 5.7.1 Full install on my Fujitsu Siemens Amilo L7310W laptop. USB flash disks are not recognized after booting up the laptop. I had Slacko 5.6 installed previously and the USB flash disks worked fine. If I plug in a USB flash disk before booting up, the flash disk icons appears after booting. If a flash disk is inserted after booting up, it is not recognized. Any ideas??

    Pmount. It is in all puppy distros.
    You manually mount usb drives with that.

    Thanks for the response rokytnji. I do know that usb drives have to be manually mounted. I have tried Pmount. The usb drives do not appear in the window. All I get is SDA1 and SDA2. See attached image. capture23435.png. Also note that this particular laptop is an older model which does not allow booting from USB. There is no option in the BIOS. Any help will be appreciated. Other than the usb problem puppy runs fantastic on the laptop. Its fast and even if I have multiple tabs open in the browser there is no problem.

    Have you tried preferences button yet to see the usb drive?
    I am not on my Puppy netbook this morning to look.
    Maybe later today.

    I also have had older gear like yours. I used PLOP to get past bios usb boot limitations when installing from usb 1.1.

    Edit, You mentioned you used to run Slack0. What are you running now and is it frugal or full install?

    I say this because I run Slack0, Macpup ,and Carolina Puppy linux versions. Some are frugal. Some are full installs, some run inside of Windows 7.

    Hi rokytnji

    Tried the preferences button. I am running precise 5.7.1 full install. Aside from the usb issue, precise runs very well.

    This is running off a live cd, wireless pcmcia , a external usb/firewire combo pcmcia, a usb to SD card adapter with the sd card showing mounted through all those hoops to jump through to get to the desktop.

    I broke out my IBM A22M to post this which has usb 1.1 back port and the card I put in pcmcia

    Now, just thinking out loud here. Do you regularly md5sum your downloaded puppy isos before burning cd and running the install?
    I won't be keeping a save file on this as this laptop has AntiX 13 installed instead to internal hard drive cuz I like it better.

    So I guess I'll look around later after a reboot and see what I can find on Precise 5.7.

    Ok Rebooted.

    I think this post pretty much covers what to peruse.

    Though read the whole thread first to get a idea on what is going on. You can compare to what is written in your files vs what is posted in that thread. I think though there is something weird going on with your install and mounting which was always the least of my
    worries in using Puppy Linux since version 2.14.

    rokytnji, I downloaded and created boot CDs for Puppy Precise 5.7.1 retro and slacko 5.7 NO PAE (this is the latest slacko). None of them recognise USB flash sticks. Slacko 5.6, however does recognise USB flash sticks which have been plugged in the laptop after booting. If the USB is plugged in before booting then it is recognised by all these distros.

    I always md5sum downloaded puppy isos before burning a cd and running the install. This is weird. If I remember correctly I had Fedora 17 installed some time ago and it too did not recognise USBs. For some reason Slacko 5.6 works!!
